What is a cheap quiet way to cool a room? Answered

I just moved into a new room, its freaking hot, so I bought a cheap fan... it's not loud but enough to keep me up at night.


I would try making a swamp cooler like one of the many on this site. It would probably be too loud to run at night, but you could run it a few hours before you go to bed ad then turn it off. In theory, the room will remain cool.

I've heard that taking a hot shower will make you feel cold after you are done or you could leave a window open for a while.

Change from slacks to Bermuda shorts.

I think you're out of luck with cheap. You might be able to drag the temperature down with a "swamp cooler" and the fan, and a window, enought to be able to leave it off at night?
