5 Really Stupid Ways to Cool Your House On Your Own [SPONSORED]

Summer starts Thursday and we all know Tri-Cities can get uncomfortably hot. Some of you may be desperate in your attempts to keep your homes cool. Well… I’m here to inform you on techniques that won’t work so great.

Here is a list of 5 stupid ideas for cooling your home:

1 ) Keeping your fridge and freezer door open. (This will likely generate a large electricity bill as well.)

2 ) Buying ice blocks to stash around the house. (Puddles…puddles… and puddles…)

3 ) Hiring people to fan you off with palm tree leaves. (I’m not sure where you would find such people in the first place.)

4 ) Close your garage door and turn on your vehicles air conditioning. (This is a good way to get Carbon Monoxide poisoning.)

5 ) Watch Ice Road Truckers. (This doesn’t need an explanation.)
