Keeping your bedroom cool-panergy
The first summer I lived in New York City was a sweltering reality check. Coming from the Northwest, I had never had an air conditioner, and I didn’t think I could afford one (or the higher electric bills). I spent that first summer tossing and turning in the muggy heat. By the following summer, I had wised up and invested in an A.C., but even then the window unit didn’t effectively cool my space.
An air conditioner is the obvious best fix for a hot bedroom. But if you don’t have one, there are some relatively simple and affordable steps you can take to keep your bedroom cool. And if you do have one, you can maximize all that conditioned air by keeping heat from entering your bedroom — or the cool air from escaping. Switching up your bedding can also go a long way to making you more comfortable.
With that in mind, these inexpensive fans will help keep your bedroom cool even on the hottest nights of summer.
