DS (8m) is all hot and grumpy having woken up from his sleep in his bedroom which is 25 degrees, 4 degrees hotter than downstairs. His room gets baking and I think we really do need to get something to cool it down.Can anyone give me any advice on those air cooler things (you put cold water of ice in or something like that) and also portable air conditioning units ? How noisy are they when they are on and do those air cooler things actually work or should we get an air conditioner ? TIA
Thanks for that. I had a horrible feeling someone would say they don't work. I'd better go fan shopping. The house is a chalet style one, so all the bedrooms are basically in the loft with no insulation and always get cold in the winter and hot in the summer. DS's room has the sun blasting through the window all day, right where the window opening is which doesn't help. I do keep the curtains shut but it doesn't seem to help either.
We're in the same boat, attic bedrooms and windows which are painted shut because they're at floor level. I'm worried my two DSs would find a way of getting their fingers trapped in fans (unless they were wall mounted I suppose.....) There must be an alternative out there?!
