3 Tried-and-True Ways to Cool Down
The rest of the country might be celebrating chilly autumn temperatures, but here in South Florida, we’ve still got the A/C on high. Want to give your air conditioning system a break? Here are a few alternative ways to cool down:
1. Take a cool shower
It will probably feel uncomfortable at first, but a cooler-than-usual shower is a great way to beat the heat. After all, a hot shower will only add to the problem! If only a hot shower will do, try rinsing your hair with cool water afterwards. You’ll love the refreshing sensation!
2. Switch to energy-efficient light bulbs
A lot of us are still using incandescent bulbs. The harsh reality is that they waste about 90 percent of their energy in heat that’s given off. upgrade to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) to help your home chill out. You’ll also save on energy costs!
3. Drink lots of water
It might not occur to you, but drinking more water will help you cool down as well. Moreover, avoiding certain drinks (like alcohol and caffeine) will help keep you hydrated and comfortable — especially on hot, humid days.
