Here are some tips to keep your cool in this sweaty period.

1.Place fans next to windows

A fan placed in the middle of a closed room will circulate the air, which helps speed up the evaporation of your sweat. But it will be much more better if the appliance is placed next to an open window, as this will draw air from outdoors, which should be a bit cooler.

By doing this, you're taking the cooler air from the outside and propelling it inside. "If there are no windows or doors open you're just circulating the hot air."

2.Get cooler with LED bulbs

Take out the Incandescent lights and go for the LED lights. Incandescent bulbs waste about 90 percent of their energy in the heat they emit. On the other hand LEDs generate less heat,so they make a huge difference by cooling your home while lowering your electricity usage bill(sounds cool right?).


3. Let the night air in.
At night the sea breeze blows towards the land so you can open up the windows before you go to bed and let some cool fresh air in. Don't forget to fix your nets, lest mosquitoes come evading your wonderful sleep.

4.Set your ceiling fans to rotate counter-clockwise. 
Sound weird? No, it's not. You can adjust your ceiling fan's rotation seasonally. Set counter-clockwise in the hot season at a higher speed, the fan's airflow will create a wind-chill breeze effect that will make you "feel" cooler.

5. Turn on the ACs

The quickest way to dispel the heat is to put on the Air Con, just make sure there is sufficient fuel in your generator before the light goes off.

And don't forget to put on light clothes, they're good wears for the hot weather.
