Luckily I live in a basement suite where most of my house is in the shade. I have a fan I just bought for super cheap at cost-co for almost $40 I think. It's REMOTE CONTROL with many different settings!. High, medium, low, wind gust, 1h, 2h, 4h, & 8h timer. It's pretty cool. The wind gust goes slow, then fast, then slow, then fast...just like real wind. The hight is also adjustable.
