Summertime means hot and sticky weather for much of the country. Many homeowners rely on air conditioning to keep them cool. But what if you need to redirect the airflow from your AC for some reason? This guide will show you how to do just that.
Ways to Redirect the Airflow from your AC
You can redirect the airflow from your AC so that it doesn’t blow directly on you. Here are some ways to do that:
1) Angle Ac’s Aircon Louvers
You can try angling the air-con louvers either by yourself or ask someone to help you if it’s too heavy.
2) Place a Blocking Object in Front of Your AC
Try using a book or magazine to block the direct air stream coming out of your AC vent.
3) Use a Fan Instead of an AC for Room Cooling
Instead of using an Air Conditioner for cooling your room, use a fan, but make sure to place your fan correctly! Don’t point it towards you while you try to sleep.
4) Turn off the AC and Just Use a Fan during Summer Nights
If you can’t afford an Air Conditioner, use a fan instead! It’s cheaper, and the cooling effect is the same (but note that it’ll be slightly less effective).
5) Limit Your Time under Cooling Air Currents After Taking Shower
The air coming out of your AC may feel very cold after taking a shower because water vapor in the air condenses into tiny droplets when cooled down. So, limit your time under cooling air currents for a while, don’t stand directly below the vent immediately after taking a cool shower!
6) Plant Green Walls/ Plants around Your Room for Natural Cooling
Plant green walls and plants around your room as their leaves absorb carbon dioxide, emit life-giving oxygen, and also help lower the temperature of your surroundings keeping the air cool.
7) Make Use of AC Vent during Summer Nights
Use an air conditioner vent during summer nights to bring fresh air into your room while it’s cooler outside. It’ll make a great combination with a fan! Or if you can’t do that, open windows to bring in fresh air from outdoors.
