9 ways to say no to the ac and reduce electricity costs - times of india  -  room evaporative air coolers
Air conditioning will keep your room cool and comfortable, but it does mean higher power costs and an increase in carbon emissions.
If your heart beats (like mine does)
Before opening your monthly bill, or if you just want to reduce energy use, these tips below will not only help reduce power consumption, but will also introduce you to a more inspired lifestyle. Read on. 1.
Be smart in ventilation
Ventilation or ventilation can keep the space cool by allowing air to flow freely through doors and windows.
Opening the window helps to reduce the indoor temperature and minimize the need to open the air conditioner.
Make sure there is another opening (
Best on the other end)
Let the air pass.
Tip: Add a bit of traditional style to your modern home by installing Jaeger in windows.
This tried and tested native Indian element is an eternal favorite because of its ability to block the sun but let the breeze in. 2.
Draw curtains during the day: Photos of Khosla Associates pull down the blinds and pull the curtains to keep out the sun and prevent cold air from escaping through open windows.

The windows on the ceiling are naked. Color blinds.
Designers are looking for segmented blinds instead of full blinds.
The length can be adjusted according to the light requirements.
Tip: Look for a screen made by khus in the local market, a reed or grass that neatly weaves into mats or blinds and hangs on doors and windowsThis is an age-
The old way to keep your home cool and comfortable.
Fragrant grass is like a natural cooler when sprinkled in water. 3.

Cooler is energy
Save an alternative to ACs.
The air cooler, also known as the evaporation cooler, adds moisture to the air, thereby reducing the indoor temperature.
However, they are more suitable for the dry and dry climate that is common in western and northern India.
Tip: traditional coolers can be a bit noisy, so check for a quieter modern variety. 4.
Set the water body for passive cooling photos: when the water evaporates to rise, it absorbs heat from the nearby air.
So why not set up a small water body in your inner courtyard?
The water body located in a strategic position creates a convection breeze, which in turn makes the home cool.
Take a clue from the space of Kumar Moorthy Associates.
The designers built a mini Zen garden with mosaic --
Water structure based on passive cooling.
If it is not possible to carry out a building renovation, then you can buy a fountain for this space or balcony, or even go to a decorative pottery jar filled with water to create a similar effect.
Tip: any space that collects water for a long time needs to be cleaned and maintained regularly.
Water may attract mosquitoes, so be sure to do the necessary maintenance. 5.
Indoor greening, outdoor plants and trees keep the surrounding air cool, thus reducing the temperature.
You can plant fallen trees like peepul (Banyan Tree religiosa)or banyan (
Banyan Tree)
Along the boundaries of your home, especially if you live on the first floor.
These plants fall in the spring and fall in the autumn, thus providing ample shade in the summer and providing the greatest sunshine in the winter.
You can also grow vines, such as curtains (

When Mercury rises, use soothing shades and fabrics in the house.
White and other light tones reflect light of all wavelengths, so the heat absorbed is minimal.
Instead, black and dark colors absorb the most and then radiate out.
Everything in the living room of Iqrup Ritz is cool, whether it is a soft tone of interior decoration or a fresh green plant. 7.

Design accessories such as carpets and carpets can increase the indoor temperature by absorbing and maintaining heat.
On the other hand, stones like marble, granite and other natural varieties have a lot of quality and are not easy to warm up, making them ideal for tropical Indian climate.
Bare floor to make the most of this cool.
In this room, natural stones cleverly sheltered do not absorb too much heat, helping to keep the indoor temperature low.
Tip: Go to chatais if you really need to use the carpet (
Reed or jute mat)
It absorbs less heat than a thick carpet.
They are also easy to roll up and store. 8.
Switching to led incandescent lamps and tubes can emit a lot of heat, which increases the sultry feeling during high temperature
Hot months-especially when you're sitting close to them.
Smaller or enclosed spaces like this study area will feel hotter because they are close to incandescent lamps.
LEDs, on the other hand, do not warm up quickly or release too much heat.
With less electricity, their carbon emissions are low and they have little impact on global warming. 9.
Don't forget the photo of "you": Beth Dana design is also important to keep your body temperature in addition to keeping it cool indoors.
Switch to food and drinks that will keep your body fresh and cool during the relentless summer.
Think about fresh fruits and vegetables like nimbu paani and refreshing drinks (lemonade), lassi (buttermilk)
Or something like a healthy drink to keep moisture all day long.
