    My downstairs is a large living area, with, 3 steps down, a kitchen in a sunroom (glass walls and ceilings). Of course it is an oven on sunny days. I put up some material over the window pass through and most of the doorway, to try to keep the hot air in the kitchen and out of the living room. The kitchen faces east and the LR faces west.

    I put up a little circular 12" fan for the dog and it works amazingly well. He seems so much more quiet and restful since I am sure he is more comfortable.

    I have a little 10" fan near where I sit in the LR and it does a good job.
