Well, hmm, we do keep our A/C at 78, but if we kept it much lower the cost of the electric would kill me more than the heat would. The last week here its been around 115, and while I realize we are in the desert, this is still even hot for us. So if you compare 78 to 115 its definately cooler inside than out
I keep my AC up around 76-77 during the summer. I don't want such a big shock when I come inside from the 90 degree plus temps and high humidity.
Well I survived yesterday...did not loose any power....when I went to bed last night at 9pm it was 85 and humid outside, so left AC on all night. I have ceiling fans in every room of my house along with a whole house fan in the upstairs hallway..... When I got up this morning at 6 am it was 72 but lots of high clouds and you could feel the humidity in the air.....it is supposed to only be 97 today as compared to the 107 of yesterday, will believe that at the end of the day. Ran two loads of laundry at 6:30 am, it is only 8:30 and pushing 85 degrees outside, the AC just kicked on, getting ready to sit down again for another long day in front of the TV, with a cold drink in my hand for sure.
Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons
I also live in Ca and it was 111 in Lake Elsinore yesterday. I'm with you. No chores today, just the TV (must watch the Olympics) and the air conditioner and of course my sewing machine
I live in La Quinta, the low desert, near Indio, CA. The last 3 days were 117 they said on the news. My covered patio thermometer said 120. I keep the AC set to 78 during the day and 81 at night, running ceiling fans. My house is well insulated. This seems comfortable to me but my 3 chihuahuas all want to be covered up with quilts. I do love the weather here in the fall, winter and spring but the summers seem to get harder as I get older. Perfect weather is coming!
I've seen those decorators pull the ceiling fans out. They wouldn't pull mine. They really do save on the 220 AC. I run my fans all night and love it. It's 107 and 8 here for a month or so. I'll be glad to see cold weather. In Texas
I'm in N. Calif. and its been 102 here and will be again today, thats hot for us, however it does cool
down at night, so about 50 in am...we keep our air at 72, our house isn't all insulated just the attic
so it keeps us cool....
