Air Conditioning – Depending on the type of course, air con can be noisy, you may need the doors and windows shut to get the full effect but it’s going to pump out cool air… Nice!
Fans – Some of the new blade-less fans are great but you can pick up some pretty powerful regular fans from stores like Maplins.
Ventilation – Doors and windows open, get a bit of a draught going.
