Feeling Stuffy? Beat The Heat & Cool Your Room Without AC

Feeling Stuffy? Beat The Heat & Cool Your Room Without AC

Living in the tropical country of Singapore, you would know how unpredictable the weather can sometimes be. You might groan when the forecast tells you you’re about to have a very sunny day with high humidity.

When the heat gets to you, you might instinctively want to reach for the remote for your air conditioner, but what if we told you there’s an easier and more eco-friendly way to stay cool? Skip out on the AC this time and try some easy methods to cool down your room so you can enjoy your day at home feeling breezy. Let us take you through our helpful tips.

1. Use a Dehumidifier

An easy way to keep you from sweating all day from the heat is by making the air in your home dry. Dehumidifying your room will help with that uncomfortable and stuffy feeling, even if the temperature is high.

Time to turn on your dehumidifier to bring down the humidity in your room. After a few minutes of it being on, you may be surprised by how much better you’ll feel despite the sunrays still coming through.

Most of the time, a dehumidifier may also use much less electricity and power than your air conditioner. For those who may not prefer the feeling of a blasting cold AC, try investing in a dehumidifier for the sweatier days.

2. Set Your Ceiling Fan to Rotate Anti-Clockwise

Did you know that the direction your ceiling fan rotates plays a role in keeping your room cool? You may not have noticed it as much while lying on your bed with the fan on, but observe whether it turns clockwise or anticlockwise.

If your ceiling fan has been unknowingly rotating clockwise the whole time, you might not be getting the most out of it as it pushes air upwards instead of down. Setting your fan’s rotation anticlockwise causes the air in your room to be blown downwards towards your direction, freshening you up appropriately. You can also take this time to clean off some accumulated dust on your fan’s blades, so they won’t get in the way of the breeze you need.

The next time you find that you’re not feeling much air being circulated well in your room, check whether it’s set to rotate in the right direction instead of turning the fan speed up to the maximum.

3. Sleep on a Cooling Mattress

When the night comes, you only want to lie on your soft bed and rest. However, when you start tossing and turning, it’s a sign that you may not be as refreshed as you’d like. It can be due to several environmental factors, but another could be the kind of mattress you sleep on.

Traditional beds retain heat more, causing your sleeping temperature to be high, making you feel like kicking your legs around under your covers. A cooling mattress helps to regulate that temperature and prevents you from sweating throughout the night.

With this gel-infused cooling memory foam mattress, you’ll sleep soundly like a baby without discomfort and wake up refreshed as the mattress’ anti-static technology discharges negative electrons from your body.
