Affordable Ways to Stay Cool During Summer

Are you feeling the brash heat of summer yet? Though we’d all love to blast the AC 24/7 and put a fan in every room, you might regret doing so once you see your electric bill. Here are eight ways to stay cool this summer without breaking the bank:

1. Drink Water

Drinking ice cold water will help maintain a low core temperature and will keep you nice and hydrated! Also, keep in mind that eating light foods such as raw veggies, fruit and fish will help to keep you cool as well. You can keep your produce and water chilled to perfection in your very own Door To Dorm fridge rental. There are several options to suit your space.

2. Catch a movie

Movie theaters are usually well air-conditioned, and serve as a nice escape from the sun for a couple hours.

3. Go the beach, lake, river, springs, etc.

In short, find a natural body of water and get in it (if it’s safe and legal to do so). Days like these are a great opportunity to pack a lunch and a cooler full of cold drinks and hang out with friends.

4. Wear light fabric and light colors

Shorts, shirts, T-shirts and jacket on the store shelf. Fashionable clothes on the shelves in the store. Showcase, sale, shopping. Luxury and fashionable brand new interior of the cloth store.

Cotton and linen are your best bet when it comes to staying cool and avoiding sweat stains. Light colors will reflect the sun rather than absorb it they way dark colors do.

6. Freeze your pillowcase

If you find that your home is still uncomfortably hot around bedtime, stick your pillowcase in your Door To Dorm refrigerator freezer for a few minutes. Never underestimate the power of sleeping on a nice, cool pillow.

7. Avoid using the oven

A hot oven will heat up your home—summer is for grilling anyways. Have you ever tried grilled watermelon? It’s great, try it.

8. Keep your curtains closed

We know it sounds grim, but try to keep as much sunlight out of your living space as possible. The darker your home stays, the cooler it will be. Blackout curtains work best for keeping your home cool, while conserving energy.
