In the topic of cooling your home, indoor fans can be handy on a hot day. There are days when it feels like these fans just move the hot air around, but they can also help make you and your pet feel a bit better with their breeze. Think about placing a fan so that it points towards the floor as an opportunity for your pet to lie under the breeze.
While some fans are rather inexpensive, you might also want to consider a slightly more expensive cooling product such as a portable A/C. These products are not permanently installed in the home, so even renters may be able to enjoy the lovely cool air they bring! However, they are often very noisy and can produce a higher electricity bill.
