I am seeking ideas for cooling an overly warm condo in the winter time. I live in Canada and being on the upper floor of my condo building, it is generally too warm in winter (24C/75F) a lot of the time even if it is well below freezing outside…my heat doesn’t turn on due to hot air rising from the unit below. We’re not supposed to have windows open when it is below freezing due to risk of water pipes freezing and causing flooding.
Ironically, heat isn’t an issue in the summer because I run a couple of portable air conditioners.
Does anyone have any Ideas for how I can cool my place in winter without risking freezing my water heating pipes? I’m looking for real ways to lower the temperature…not things like swamp coolers or fans that only make it feel cooler. Due to condo bylaws I can’t drill into the exterior of the condo.
