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

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.

I bought this for the windowsill on the third floor of my apartment.The window can be opened from the outside if a person climbs the pipe right next to me window.I bought three. One is to secure the right-most pane, and then the middle pane is latched to the left-most pane (which is next to the pipe).I put TWO of these on the left-most pane; one stacked next to the other.There's no WAY someone with one hand hanging awkwardly on the pipe would be able to push the slightly ajar window open.Quite secure, I like the double sized, dual-screw scheme. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 7, 2013

This review is from: M-D Building Products 04267 17-Feet Storm Door and Window Replacement Weather-strip (Tools & Home Improvement) I looked for this product at all the hardware stores around town (Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Target, etc) before I found this online at Amazon. It provides a good wind and dust seal for my sliding windows and it's super-easy to install. It's literally: a) measure; b) cut to size; c) remove backing tape and d) stick to surface. To get the best adhesion, I thoroughly clean the surface of the window and then alcohol the area to be sure all finger oils and dust is gone before I apply the weather-stripping. I think it sticks longer this way. Overall, good product. Would buy again in the future. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 20, 2012

This weatherstrip is easy to install. Its installation has eliminated the rattle that often occurred in these windows on windy days, and it has decreased the infiltration of cold air into the house.

    ODL, Inc

    ODL enclosed blind

    First unit received with packing loose and the raising hook disconnected from the raising bar. Was replaced very promptly. 2nd unit hangs up about midway down when lowering-there is a groove in the raising bar that hangs up on the spring steel magnet strap that the magnet rides against. The strap is bent and catches the bar when it goes up (lowers the blinds). Unit also does not lower fully without wiggling the lowering handle. Looks like quality control in the China plant needs attention.Update: Customer service was very helpful. I was able to remove the metal bar that is part of the raising mechanism and access the bent steel strap that the magnet rides on. The bar was very easy to bend and I was able to repair the unit without any problem. The unit was a close fit on our door - I had to hang it at a slight angle to fit between the door handle and the hinge barrels. Otherwise, I would have had to cut part of the height adjustment handle off, but hanging it slightly off... 2/5 D. Lee (Algoma, MS USA) - See all my reviews, March 31, 2013
