Fans and Air Coolers are major sources to cool homes during hot summers in Pakistan. 58% cite fans while 19% cite air coolers as their principal means to cope with heat. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN

 Islamabad, June 28, 2012

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, fans and air coolers are major sources to cool homes during hot summers in Pakistan. 58% cite fans while 19% cite air coolers as their principal means to cope with heat.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “What do you do normally to keep your house cool during summers?” Responding to this, 48% claim that they only use fan, 14% claim to use air conditioner, 19% use cooler, 10% claim to use additional fans to cool their houses whereas 6% use water to cool their houses. However, 3% do nothing about it. It should be noted that electricity breakdowns and load-shedding are very painful because fans and coolers are major sources of coping with summer heat.

Question: “What do you do normally to keep your house cool during summers?”
