How to Keep Your Tent Cool During the Summer

The beautiful weather in July is perfect for an outdoor party. But, sometimes, it can also be just a little too hot to handle! Don’t let the heat ruin your party. When the thermometer starts getting high, use these tips to keep your tent cool and comfortable.

Here’s how to keep your tent cool during the summer:

Select a cooling device.

To keep the inside of your tent cool (and to keep you and your guests from sweating!), use a cooling device. Check out some options:

Cool boxes

Cool boxes are large, stand-up boxes that you can put in the corner of your tent to keep the whole atmosphere cool.

What makes this different than a traditional fan?

The tank evaporates water and makes your tent like an ocean breeze: the air above remains a bit cooler, since the water is evaporating and cooling it down. Though cool boxes do not help against humidity, they oscillate and create a very generous breeze of air that is 10 degrees cooler than room temperature. To see some of the cool boxes available at Atent For Rent, click here.

Fans

When it comes to fans, you have a few options. With smaller, hanging fans, you can position these on the tent’s posts throughout the tent for distributed cooling. Or, you can use bigger, stand-up fans in the tent’s corners for maximum, powerful air circulation. To see some of the fans available at Atent For Rent, click here.

A/C rentals

If you have an extra large tent that you want to keep exceptionally cool, consider an A/C rental.  A/C will pack a more powerful punch than most cool boxes and fans. With A/C rentals from Atent For Rent, we can pump air-conditioning directly into your tent, creating a perfectly cool environment so that you can enjoy your party, no matter the heat.  To see some of the A/C rentals available at Atent For Rent, click here.

Add an element of water to your party.

A cooling device will definitely get the job done, but if you want to keep your tent cool and add a bit of flair to your party, consider adding an element of water. (Particularly, if you’re hosting an event with children, a little bit of water is great way to keep them cool and entertained.)

Sprinklers

If you’re putting up a tent in your backyard, try positioning a few sprinklers around the tent. The misting water will not only help to keep everyone cool, but it will also give the kids a chance to run around outside and play and burn off some energy (so that the adults can finally have a moment to relax!). Just remember, don’t put the sprinklers too close to the tent, or suddenly all of the guests will get splashed!

Water inflatables

Another great way to keep cool during an outdoor, summer event is with water inflatables. Use these in conjunction with your tent to complete the party experience. Find great water inflatables, like the Big Kahuna or the Double Splash from our friends at Busy Bee JumpersFor a party with kids, a water inflatable will help to keep them cool and it will act as an extra party delight!

Pick the right tent to stay cool.

While adding cooling devices and elements of water will help to keep your tent cool on these hot, summer days, it is also important to pay attention to what kind of tent you are using to begin with. At Atent For Rent, we offer specific styles of tents that are designed to help keep you cool: the Canopy, Victorian, and Frame style tents. All of these tents employ blockout fabric. This special material does just what it claims: it “blocks out” the sun, thus, significantly reducing the amount of heat entering your tent. To browse all of the tents available at Atent for Rent, click here.
