how to make room cooler without using A/C?

i live in a 2 BR apartment that is east facing. in the morning, the sun comes in and heats up the apartment extremely fast. we HAVE central AC and it works fine, but it costs too much to run. I live in San Diego where it is hot pretty much every day, and rarely do we get a break from that. today its going to reach 80F, which means it will be about 85F in my apartment. How to I make it cooler in at least my bedroom? I have a window fan running all night, and all morning, but the blinds I use are not very effective (they are the kind of blinds that are plastic slits that slide horizontally). I was thinking of using aluminum foil and trying to block out all of the heat and light. Will that work if i only use it in my bedroom? What are some other tips. and please dont make stupid suggestions like "buy some more fans", and p.s., I already know about the bowl of ice in front of a fan trick. the reason i dont use that is bc i dont have any ice. thank you! :)


There isn't much you can do with an apartment as everything is more or less temporary. But you can get blackout curtains that act as good insulation and reflective curtains. San Diego has low humidity so an evaporative cooler is an option. Whatever that so called green designer is spouting is nonsense, aluminum foil does not absorb heat, it reflects heat, mylar space blankets exist because they reflect 97% of the radiant heat, radiant insulation in attics are reflective aluminum foil that reflect radiant heat, and dark colors absorb heat not reflect heat.

drink tea in desert areas people drink hot tea, you sweat and evaporates which draws heat from your body and makes you feel cooler

If you own the apartment, you could use a passive cooling system. This is to have air vents low down on the floor area and others higher up at the opposite side of the room, so that the warm air rises out of the top vents, and draws cooler air in through the lower ones. If you could use piping outside to lower the level of the initial intake of the lower vent, it will be cooler. Yes, you could use reflective foil on the windows (maybe leave a thin slit near the bottom for light), as it is the sunlight that is heating your bedroom. Here is a site you might find useful: http://www.builditsolar.com/Projects/Coo ling/passive_cooling.htm it will give some useful tips to use :) also, you could use silk or satin sheets on your bed to help feel cooler while asleep :)

Aluminum foil will absorb the heat, you don't want that. I am a Green Interior Designer and always look for alternative ways to keep homes cool rather than using AC at all or at least very little. I am going to suggest a few things, if you do them all you will notice a difference and I am sorry but it does include the purchase of new window treatments, but not blinds. First paint the room a dark color, doesn't matter what, it reflects light and heat, then use light colored bedding etc, so it balances the look in the room. If you have carpet pull it up, if you can afford it and it won't cost much install some stone, ceramic, tile. It will make a huge difference. If you can't do that, just paint the floor. Buy some blackout drapes. You can find them for less than $30 a pair from a company called Brylane Homes. Make sure they are blackout. Leave them closed all the time. Put a timer on your AC. Have it set to come on about 5am when it will be the coolest in your house, leave it on high for about 2 hours, then turn on the ceiling fan to circulate the cool air. You may even be cold while this is happening, but if you've got the right drapes,painted the room and you did the floor, you will notice a difference.

Where can I find a interior window trim for a camper window? Please help!?

I am remodeling a 1975 starcraft travel trailer. I need to find a flexible rubber window trim that you can insert into the inside windows of the camper. They are aluminum sliding windows, half of the windows have the trim but the other half does not and I can't find them anywhere. The trim is used to cover Does anyone know where I can find them?


I bought them from my local auto shop. They did the installation for me for a bit extra cost. I am not sure if they will just sell your the trim. Since it is such a old van you won't find costumed trip. You will need to buy a longer piece and cut it down yourself

go to where you bought it, they should ave them in stalk

Maybe the rubber window trim is not durable, and will fade when it drys in the sun. So my advice is that you can use lace trim to decorate your trailer window. Here is a website on amazon, it sells all kinds of home decorations like window covers, curtain, bed sheet sets, table cloth and so on. The link of window trim that maybe you like it:http://www.victoriasdeco.com/Unique-all- lace-made-cafe-curtainvalance/M/B007PXKB CW.htm If you have any questions, please contact the customer service department: victoriasdeco@gmail.com

Creator: R. Dodge Woodson | Technology & Engineering - 1995-09-15

SLIDING WINDOWS Sliding windows have been around for years, but they are not used much anymore. Aluminum sliding windows are probably the least expensive type of window you can buy, but I wouldn't recommend using them.

This review is from: Prime Line U-10551 Sliding Window Locks ** 6 PACK -- 12 TOTAL LOCKS ** (Baby Product) This product does a reasonably good job of securing your windows. I'm happy with it, with a few notes:1. not exactly obvious, but if you have older wooded windows, this WON'T WORK, it tightens down on a thin strip of whatever to prevent the sash from moving, and wood is too thick (and would probably split).2. even though it has a thumb screw, you'll want to use pliers to tighten. all the way hand tight for me I could still slide it.3. using pliers on these, in the location you have to put them, is AWKWARD!!! be warned it's a time-consuming and bit aggravating process4. you really have to make sure the rubber stays in place, since it is loose and not glued inOnce you get through all this, you can't move your window without a pair of pliers to undo it, so it works. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 18, 2012

    Forget the rubber gaskets!

    Ok, three stars for the locks in general because I like this type of lock. I have them on all of my windows and I purchased this set because I wanted to add locks on the TOP of the windows that I never open anyway, for additional stability and security. I subtracted two stars for the fact that they are completely unworkable with the rubber on them.I thought that these, with the rubber gaskets, would be even better than the ones I already have. I was wrong. First of all, the rubber on the ones I got was nothing like what is shown on the picture here. They are closed up so you cannot slip them onto the thin metal area at all. So I figured I would take them out, put the rubber onto the area, then slip the lock OVER that and proceed to tighten them on. Nope! I was unable to get the lock over the rubber at all. So, the only way to go was to just remove the rubber entirely and not worry about the metal scratching the paint. In that regard, they will be perfectly fine... 3/5 sharkychick - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Designed with Attention to Detail

    It's smart for a couple reasons. Of course, the concept is simple: trap the air between the glass and the room and the air becomes the insulator. But it's all in the implementation and that's where this product shines. It uses double-sided tape that isn't so sticky that it will pull of paint when removed. Have to get that right and they did. The real attention to detail is the film material. When installed, it better not look tacky. So they formulated the material to shrink just enough to tighten it up to pull out the hard and soft wrinkles, but not pull away from the tape! Don't worry if the tape and the film lie on perpendicular planes. The film won't pull off when it shrinks. It's resilient enough not to overcome the film-to-tape adhesion. Again: brilliant.It is also optically clear, not at all diffusive. That is another absolute must. I was simply amazed at how this product brings all this together into a cheap, effective solution to drafty old windows... 5/5 J.

    What if you have window shades?

    This is a great product, but what do you do if you have window shades or curtains that go across the window between the inside trim pieces? All the videos I have seen show the film being placed across the front of the entire window casement. You can do that, but then you can't adjust the window shades.I installed this product on 10 windows having shades, and after the first one, when I made all the mistakes, I was able to do them in 5-10 minutes each. Here's how (and how to avoid the mistakes).First - and this applies to any window - realize that when you first roll out the film to cut it, you are cutting to the width of the window (+2 inches). When you unfold the film after cutting, it unfolds to 5 feet, the maximum length of the window. After you install the film, you can trim off the leftover film at the bottom of the window.Start by cleaning the wood surface with alcohol.
