Attention everyone who suffers from the heat in the apartments!

And if you don't have air conditioning:

Please top it!

...Temperatures in Moscow and most parts of Russia climbed to 34.8 degrees on Wednesday, the highest since 1901. Overall, June 2021 breaks records for all 140 years of observation.

Forecasters don't know when temperatures will return to normal....

Therefore:

1. Immediately turn off your bathroom towel racks. Most have them hooked up to hot water and have screws. Shut them off.

2. After completing step 1, pour cold (icy) water into the bathroom to the brim. Leave the door to the bathroom open. The water will heat up - taking the temperature from the air (law of thermodynamics). You will be able to lower the temperature of the apartment by 2-6 degrees (depending on the size of the apartment).

3. the windows on the sunny side should be insulated. Close windows, tulle and curtains. If the windows are on the shady side - you can open them (the stuffiness is worse than the heat).

4. Buy a sprayer on a bottle, and periodically spray water on the curtains, because they become radiators - wet curtains cool a lot when they evaporate. Spray water on the floor as well.

5. Terry towel - wet it with cold (not ice cold) water and dip your body and head. Walk around the house barefoot.

6. If you have someone lying at home (a sick person, grandmother) put a wet towel on his hip - the towel drying cools the arteries and lowers the blood temperature. Note that in the heat the maximum mortality of the elderly and the bedridden from overheating.

7. At night, open windows as much as possible, and cool your apartment. Do not be afraid of insects-they are inactive now, too. In the morning, continue to fight against point 1.

8. 8. use hardening - contrast showers. Tempering is very useful. Thermoregulation will recover and will save you.

9. Do not eat fatty foods and do not drink strong alcohol. Pepsi and Fanta will not help you, drink water.

Be healthy and strong!

Some points are quite strange. When the heat to raise the humidity is inappropriate here and so there is nothing to breathe and more humidity. A little advice from a man who lives where in the summer it is +40 (may be +65 in the sun) in the shade is the norm and in winter in the same shade can be -40. Freeze the water in plastic bottles and put 3-4 pcs in front of the fan. Optimally 1.5 liters of 9-12 bottles. And a freezer.

When I was a student I got caught like that. After drinking I had the last one and a half left in the fridge. It didn't work, or froze like crazy. In the morning, everyone had a headache. We weren't even awake yet. There were three of us in the hut. And one clever one, anticipating the coolness of the life-giving drink, rushed to the freezer:


-Oh, there's ice in the fridge again! I'll open a beer. It's fucking freezing. I don't think it's frozen.

Floating blinds? Pfft. They already sell all kinds of shelves that reflect the airflow. People don't want to read anything. I used to do splits. Most of the "exhaust" in a job like this is from guess what. From the fact that people don't even know that splits don't just cool. They can also heat the air, dehumidify it, just run it around and work in automatic mode. And modern ones, oh my, can even draw fresh air from the street and bring it into the room. That's how they call for a split that doesn't work, you come in, push the button on the remote, take 500 evergreen and go to the next such "passenger". One here above is balking at the fact that there is no mold in the indoor unit. You call a specialist to clean the indoor unit, only normal, with a steam generator or a complete disassembly, and your cloth wiped and washed the grid in the summer to do every week. And, yes, you should buy and install it either in early spring or already in September.

I don't remember physics very well, but it has to be something like this:


Specific heat capacity, is the amount of energy it takes to heat 1kg of a substance by one degree. The density of air at 20 degrees Celsius, rounded up, is 1.2 kilograms per cubic meter. So, To heat a cubic meter of air by one degree, it takes 1*1.2 = 1.2 KJ, or 1200 J.


The air volume of a room is 30 sq. m. = 70 м^3.

1,2*70= 84 KJ of energy to cool the air of a 30 sq.m. room by 1 ° C.


Energy for water heating 1 kg of water at 1 °С = 4,2 KJ

84/4,2=20 liters of water must be heated by 1 degree to cool the room by 1 degree.


Cooling 20 liters of water to 5-6 ° C and heating it to 30 degrees we get about the same reduction in temperature of a room of 30 square meters. Basically has the right to life, as long as cooling the water doesn't throw heat into the same air that will be cooled.


You can kick me if I'm wrong in my calculations.


On the other hand evaporating 1 kg of water by itself requires 2300 KJ of energy.

Point 4 is also very controversial.

Spraying. By spraying water, you increase the humidity.

The higher the humidity, the worse the heat and the hotter the body. And the worse your body's natural cooling system works afterwards.

For those who do not understand how humidity affects, let's remember.

In a Russian bath (wet) the maximum temperature in which you can be 60-90 degrees.

In a dry sauna you can be at 90-120 degrees, and some have up to 140 degrees.


Second, by spraying the curtains, the curtains may be cooling, only the heat isn't going anywhere, it's transferring from the curtains to the air. With the recommended closed window on the sunny side will only increase the air temperature and humidity.

Cooling the air with evaporating water works better in dry climates, and if you do it with us, you can end up in a situation where it feels like you're not in the air, but you're floating in a warm sour cream and it's not getting a damn thing cooler.

Well, yes, I had one just like it, but somehow it was always called a radiator anyway and it worked/turned off with all the other radiators together. It never occurred to me before that in houses without boilers, the same hot water can be supplied to it as to the faucet.

Normally, hot water backs up through the towel racks so you don't have to run cold water for 10 minutes in the morning.

Hide Show +15 Author avatar PavelPol 24 June 2021

So it's logical, you need a towel radiator all year round. And the fact that it burns - yes, it sucks. You can put an electric one. You can install valves and a jumper. But in theory we need to coordinate, since this is the common property, and still there is a history of how to close the water neighbors from above / below, the conditional grandmother was hot, the whole riser without hot water.

Hide Show +5 Author avatar AnzhieArt 24 June 2021

So he is not just steaming, and to dry, or I do not understand its purpose? At us recently water of hot have been switched off, accordingly and a towel dryer cold was, so humidity was like in a jungle, also the towels did not dry, now the towel dryer is hot, but in a bathroom dry and all the same it is cooler (in other rooms of apartment +30 round the clock)

Hide Show +1 Author avatar DzirtDoYein 24 June 2021

I have a towel dryer in my house - directly built into the hot water pipe. It can't be replaced without turning off the entire hot water riser. There's no "shut off" function at all.



But there's a big plus


Towel rail belongs to the common property, and if it bursts - I will not pay for the repair of the whole house.

(although I'll still be worried about flooding the house).

Sometimes you have to drain a lot of water to get the hot water flowing.

Try wrapping the summer with insulating material for pipes.

I lived in an apartment without hot water (everyone has a gas boiler), where the towel radiator was powered from the riser of heating - and, accordingly, did not work for six months. In the bathroom is eternally grave cold, towels do not dry, mold is climbing, the door wide open to keep somehow dry out, and to wash in cool weather and freeze to the floor - it was necessary in advance to turn on the bathroom fan heater, and then from the shower immediately jumped into the boots and a warm bathrobe quickly. It was sad, too.

Hide Show 0 Author avatar Ariyka 24 June 2021

I lived in a cold apartment, the bathroom is about as you described, and the towel dryer did not warm in summer. So it's better to have heat, at least it won't always have a sore throat and runny nose... And this wild cold, when neither tea nor blankets help... :(

The scheme of its connection is (photo from the Internet). Roughly speaking, it is the hot water pipe.


In Soviet-era houses, that's probably the way it's going to be.


Does not turn off in principle, as long as there is hot water, will dry.
