Our house is old and the AC doesn't work very well. Here's how to avoid moving:
-shade the windows
-sprinklers on the siding and roof
-damp rag around your neck
-long sleeves, loose pants

Up there wait for an old spike you're getting up there. 41. Hungary, science is roughly what 113 frank is nice, fair, hot mind. You won't hear me complaining, though well boys just finally happened.

Summer come on a monday. We got the bunnies inside so as not to roast them checking out some extra hot areas of the house in order to mitigate those you see on the floor hotspot, that's actually due to the winter one of the things they don't tell you, however, if your ac Isn't keeping up is use a little evaporative cooling. Our bodies have been doing it for zillions of years. You can get the same amount of cooling out of evaporating six liters of water.

I did the calcs years ago, so i'm paraphrasing my own mind, mind six. Liters of water, the six kilograms of water evaporating takes away the same amount of heat as a 12 000 btu air conditioner. Why do you think grass is so cool because it's magic? No because the grass is evaporating water, it's respiring, uh the back wall of the holiest of holies, the wife's bedroom, i'm normally relegated to the couch she's hotter than freak. That's a south facing wall; apparently the uh insulation 18, the south facing wall 70 degrees science.

That's uh degrees. Frankenstein, that's pretty hot. This should be obvious of the most casual observers, but electric cooling is far less efficient than evaporative cooling. This is direct cooling and you don't need a runner.

24. 7. You just need to give her a few liters of water and she'll chill right down now with the sprinkler she's right down to 40 35 thereabouts, which is cooler than ambient just in the time. It's taken me to shuffle my slippers in the doors you can see.

The far side of the wall is much cooler what's getting rained on than this near side of the wall, which leads me also to mention that the latent heat in the earth, because the average temperature from the winter to the summer is but 15 degrees centigrade, which Means that the earth, a massive heat sink, remains at roughly 15 degrees. If you dig deep enough, it gets hotter, but at the surface, you're between 10 and 15 degrees and because the water is traveling through the earth, it drops its heat to 10 degrees or so, which leads me to believe that we could effectively very effectively cool our Houses with very little energy input - if we just put the work in beforehand to have some pipes running in the ground, i mean people knew this from generations. You get a root cellar, it stays nice and cool. You can keep your fruits and vegetables cool.

It's a built-in refrigerator and yet for some reason, we've gone away from that. These guys are getting to the awkward teenage stage, hairy, legged, copper, marantz, panting away and overall it's some beautiful, lavender orpingtons. If that dirty old had moved, we named him stew, no relation y'all saw me before my prostate got bigger my head them old vegetables. They ain't dumb, you wet a rag.

This happens to be a bar cloth. You wet that up slap it around your neck beat the heat my wife gets after me for wearing long sleeve shirts in the heat, but i worked in the tropics. I asked you, i asked our dear sweet duck friends here. Is it cooler in the sun or in the shade, so you.

    I ask you, good sir, Is it warmer to be under a blanket or not to be under one atol???

    -Just poking….. I'm a Floridiot, I Clean Pools in my straw hat and loose-fitting long sleeve shirts.

    Are your Ducks young ones or do you cull the flock?
    We started with a pair. Diligently collected All of the eggs, and ended up with 11 more little ducklings one morning magically.
    Seems Mama duck, had a hidden stash behind a container next to the shed. You know the type, the one you were going to move, and are still going to, as soon as you find some where to put it. 😉
    Anyway, the wife was wondering as she watched this over my shoulder.

    I just ran the sprinkler over the last 4 days during Vancouver's latest heatwave, and it worked perfectly. The temperature on the flat roof went from 65C to 25C. I only let the sprinkler run for about 10 mins every couple of hours.
    One thing I learned is to start doing it a day or 2 'before' the hottest days hit. As my building becomes a heat sink and it takes about 2 days in 20C weather to go from 30C – 25C on the inside.
    Also, I was going to suggest to anyone living in a fire zone who have, or are considering getting a fire prevention sprinkler system for their roof. You now have 2 reasons to get one as you should be able to use it to cool your roof. The soap would actually help with keeping the roof wet longer.

    Here in the Denver area, "swamp coolers" are common alternatives to compressor-based air conditioning. They pull outside air past a water-soaked mesh, dropping the air's temperature while increasing its humidity. They're supposed to use a lot less power than A/C, but they result in "muggy" air. I'd rather have a system that used evaporative cooling on the hot coils of the A/C, keeping all that extra humidity out of the home. I've considered a system with a soaker hose at the roof peak and sensors partway down and a foot or so above the gutters. It could run the soaker just enough to keep most of the roof wet, but not enough to waste water. All that evaporative cooling would keep the roof cooler at low cost.

    In Finland, we have ground source heat pumps in detached houses. So it is possible to make a bypass with a 20 w pump and circulate the ground cold liquid with a separate indoor unit. Electricity consumption ridiculous. I installed these myself.

    Dumb question: what the hell went wrong up there? I'm from and in Seattle, so I know none of us were ready for that weather. But the response in WA which didn't seem up to the job still seemed to get the toll within 2-3x the best case…. not good, not terrible. Was there just no response by the authorities in BC? Does just utterly nobody have AC?

    I've lived in evaporative cooling .They're also called swamp coolers for good reason. Two issues with them. The first is whatever the humidity is inside your abode, it's going to rise significantly with a swamp cooler. Even in central Arizona with single digit humidity, heavy reliance on a swamp cooler will make your cloth upholstered furniture soggy. The second issue with swamp coolers is reliance on vapor pressure to evaporate the water. The higher the ambient humidity, the lower the cooling effectiveness. A swamp cooler also requires frequent maintenance. To avoid wasting water, the cooler has a water sump with a float valve similar to that found in toilet tanks. It adds water as it is evaporated by the cooler. That sump is prone to algae, mildew and mold if it's not cleaned regularly, just as a swimming pool will quickly suffer algae blooms if not treated. You don't want to treat the water in the sump as it's evaporated on baffles with the cooled air sucked into the home by a squirrel cage fan . . . now containing moisture from the sump. I remember vividly going up onto the roof to clean out the swamp cooler sump and refill it which wasn't a pleasant task, especially when it's 115 F on an asphalt shingle roof. Bottom Line: don't rely heavily on a swamp cooler which acquired that appellation from those that did. Keep the HVAC running and only use it as a minor supplement. The HVAC will act as a dehumidifier to mitigate some of the swamp cooler's humidity.

    You can't use evaporative coolers if humidity it's high. You can't add humidity to something already saturated. Also air conditioning is extremely efficient something near to 100%. You really don't know what your talking about. You stick to pouring water over your house those of us who need real cooling will use air conditioning no one wants to add humidity to the air. I know plenty of others will agree.
