  • My central air condition does the job, I always have It at around 70 degrees cool, just how I like It =)
  • Good question. Today it got up to 105 and is expected to be near that for the next three or four days. We just set our air conditioner program for 80 degrees and it keeps the house cool automatically.
  • climbing vines and trees keep the house cooler longer; also keeping the blinds closed
  • use fans and sometimes close the blinds to keep the sun out,it works.+5
  • We have the air condition going. The blinds closed. And fans in each room.
  • not a big issue in England - sometimes I open a window, and if it is really really hot I might use a fan
  • if the builders of your home built it facing south, you can stay in the north part of your home where it will be cool... just like my home. also, curtains to keep the sun out help, and wearing light clothes and being barefoot. drinking cold water helps, and keeping doors closed if it's hotter outside than inside. i live in a house with no a/c when the temperature is over 30 in the shade, and thank God i am still alive, so it's possible....
  • Central air conditioning. :-)
  • Doors and windows open, electric fan on in the evening... I am anti air-conditioning. Of course, if I lived in Navada or something that would change!
  • We do not have four seasons in our country. We have either dry or wet seasons. When it is warm in the dry season, I would do the following things: (1) Switch on both the ceiling and stand fans if needed. (2) Switch on the airconditioner if it still unbearably warm.
  • I have fans going and keep the curtains closed in the afternoon as all my windows face west.
  • Close the blinds and the curtains, turn on a fan or the central air.
  • Open all the windows and doors :)
  • very hard lol thick curtains, sealed windows & doors, fans upstairs blowing hot air out, a/c
  • Air conditioner, windows closed, blinds and curtains drawn with fans on in other rooms.
  • Keep the doors open and fans on full blast.We can't afford AC.It is not that hot anyway in my city.We have the most beautiful climate here+
  • I live in a brick house. After sitting in the sun all day, those bricks absorb a LOT of radiant heat. It's like living in a pizza oven! When it gets to a certain point, I put in the window air conditioner.
  • With an air conditioner and ceiling fans.
  • This is Ireland, the question here is, "How do you keep your house warm during the summer?"(!)
  • the air coditioner comes on in May and goes off in late September
  • I have the 3 Little Pigs blow and huff and puff and cool the place down
  • (sigh) I don't :(
  • I used to run a small window A/C unit in the afternoons, pulling air east to west, spray a mist of cool water over the house and around the front porch in the evenings, keep the windows on the east side open at night, west side in the morning. Then we built a new house in a place hotter than Salt Lake City, UT (now in Central Washington State) and had the house painted white, light colored roofing tiles, honeycomb pleated shades on the windows, oh and a heat pump on a timed thermostat.
  • Window air conditioners. My last house had central A/C but it was as expensive to cool the house in the summer as to heat it in the winter. Now I have a window A/C in the bedroom that runs practically 24/7, and one in a living room window that I turn on only when I'm home. Not having central sacrifices a little comfort in not having the whole house evenly cool at all times, and it took a little getting used to the constant noise in the bedroom, and having some of my windows blocked is irksome. But my bedroom is always sub-zero for sleeping at night (which is the way I like it, and was hard to achieve with central), and I can cool the living room down quickly enough for watching TV when I get home from work. And the two units running constantly over the weekend keeps the whole house as evenly cool as central did. And it's much cheaper overall than central.
  • AC! Turn it up and rip off the knob! lol
  • combination of attic fans at night when it is cool and AC.
  • We use fans a lot Don't use the oven at all and minimize the use of the stovetop burners. We eat a lot of sandwiches and salads...the appetite changes in summer..we don't get so hungry for heavy foods. We make use of our microwave We open up the doors and windows first thing in the morning to cool down the house..once the temperature inside/outside is the same, we close everything up, draw the blinds, and have a light on only if we're reading. Right now it is currently 103.6 outside at 4:23 p.m. California time. We have our A/C set at 80 degrees. We eat popsicles, ice cream, chilled fruit, drink sodas and sometimes just drink water with ice cubes. At night when the temperature is livable outside, we shut the A/c, open up windows/doors and try to let the house cool down a bit before bedtime. We have a ceiling fan in our bedroom and also the guest bedroom. With the window open and the fan on at night, it is comfortable enough to go to sleep.
  • I like to be cool all year round, I don't like the heat. +5
  • Houses in Croatian coast were build with half meter thick stone wall. Reason is: good isolation. In summer from hot days up to 38 degrees C in the shade. In winter from loosing heating energy. In hot summer we all darken our houses, and close all doors and windows. Then at the night, when sun sets, we open our doors and windows in search for cool air.
  • a/c and fans
  • AIR CONDITIONER.
