Suggestions for room temperature

Any suggestions on how to lower room temperatures without using an air-conditioning system?

btw I live in a tropical country with around 80 ~ 85 % humidity

Hello Edrik,

I suppose that you could open all the windows and use ceiling fans as needed.

A good dehumidifier may help it not be so sticky and stuffy when the house cannot be open and is closed up.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

It depends on what models you use, but you can look at the energy ratings for the appliance to see how much power it uses, and for the average estimated cost of use per year sticker on it.

If it's close, I would go with the air-conditioner to cool, and it also removes some moisture as well. A dehumidifier will not cool since it only helps remove moisture in the air.

I live in South Louisiana so i know about that high humidity. Back in the old days before we had air conditioning we had a large fan in the attic or in a window to suck air out of the house. Then open a window in each room for fresh air to come in. Just like cooling your pc case. Always had large trees to shade the house especially the west side for that hot afternoon sun. Shade makes a big difference.

The dehumidifiers I use are rated at 400 Watts. An AC is more like 2KW or more.
