Keeping our Homes Cool and Using Solar Cookers
In May there was a day that was unusually hot so I decided to do what I did in the summertime when I lived on a farm in Templeton, in a triple wide mobile home with some friends. It became my job to keep the house cool since I was the one who worked at home while the others worked in air-conditioned offices. So, this is my story for people who live here at Creekside (Mobile Home Estates) when those really hot days occasionally sneak up on us in SLO.
If I know it’s going to be relatively hot the next day, the night before I open all the windows to cool down the entire house and then at around 6-7am I close everything. Close the windows, the curtains and make it as dark as possible. This will guarantee keeping the house cool throughout the day. Depending on the type of installation you have, I typically open up everything around 3-5pm depending on the winds and how hot it is. Rather than using air conditioning or trying to stay cool while the hot air is coming in through open windows, try it and see how it works for you. My roommates were always delighted if they came home for lunch and realized how cool the house was, just like their air-conditioned offices.
