Our house has small windows, high ceilings and is surrounded by trees and bushes; great for keeping it cool during warm season. However, it’s the cooler, rainy season at the moment and the house still stays warm and stuffy even when it’s pleasantly cool outside. Opening all the window screens would risk letting hoards of mosquitos in, so we’ve come up with another solution which works a treat:


Yes, fans outside the house, which blow the cool air inside! I wish it had been my idea, but a colleague of ours, Richard, suggested it recently and it works a treat. Within a couple of hours, our lounge was about 5 degrees cooler. Excellent!

Of course, we only put the fans under the veranda, otherwise the rain might just have a shocking effect on them!
