Or working with little $$$ is fine too. What could be put on the ceiling? What would be an example?

comment What are low-cost ways of cooling down a room?
So, just so I understand the first part of the first paragraph. Should I be sucking the hot air INTO the room, or suck it OUT of the room using the fans via the open windows? Also, when you say the bedroom needs to go into lockdown - do you mean I need to get all the heat out of the bedroom, 1 night...and then do my best to never let it in again (i.e. keep all windows closed forever??). Not sure how I can do that with the Zinc roof though.

I agree with the comment about static electricity. I understand the concern about moisture, and what I will do is leave the computer open so the moisture dries. This is a good suggestion though.

@woodchips you are absolutely right. That solution is brilliant. I am definitely going to use it.

>The first part will be to put a hose onto an inner tube. I don't know what thread an inner tube valve is, so I would go to my local hardware store and get them to help me find a nipple with the proper thread. Would I need to do that if I am using a tank? It sounds like that would be a tire, no?

My only question is, if I get an air tank, how do I know when it reaches full capacity when filling it. I don't want to burst it...should that even be a concern?

P.S. My desire to not use a depletable resource is not really for 'green' purposes. It's coupled with being frugal and hating waste (although, you can argue that's 'green'). But I love this solution, really do.

This is brilliant. This makes total sense too....because the thing is, I don't live in the US. So I was going to buy it online and ship it to a friend who is coming down. Now, though, I might just buy the hose and the attachments I need and go that route. Thanks! P.S. Any suggestions for hoses?

that's exactly what I am trying to do - except I don't know the companies to look for.....it's why I am here :)

This is what I usually use...but, I don't want to have to keep buying a new can when I use it. I want to find a small machine that will function just like this. You are absolutely right about the tank - which is why I came here to find out if anyone knew of any suggestions :)

I am not dusting anything like a car...it literally is my computer (keyboard and inside the case + my hobby R/C car). I would just buy a canister of compressed air, but I hate the thought of depleting a non-renewable resource (i.e. I will have to buy a new can after X number of sprays). I would rather get something that just requires electricity to be renewed.

That does look like something I would want, but it's way too bulky and expensive. Is there nothing smaller that I can get my hands on, within the price range of the others?
