I’m not one who minds the heat, but I hate the cold.
- This last month, has had temperatures in the mid to upper seventies and night-time temperatures are in the fifties.
I hadn’t used the air conditioning in over a month, and I loved how my energy bill reflected it. I didn’t use the air conditioning unless the temperatures were in the upper eighties and there was a lot of humidity. I was happy with my ceiling fans, but I still kept the air conditioning unit just in case. Yesterday, the temperatures warmed up to 80. The humidity levels were in the 70s. The only reason I turned the air conditioning on then, was because I was busy cleaning the house. I have a family member moving in with us, and the spare bedroom cleaned, and some walls needed to be replaced. While my husband was carrying all the extra things in that room upstairs, I was scrubbing floors and cleaning ceilings to get rid of all the dust. I him laughing all the way from the attic when I turn the air conditioning on. Our central air makes a funny little wheezing noise when it first turns on, and it shocked him a bit that I was the one turning it on and not him. Whenever he is home, I am wrapped in my sweater the entire time. Although I miss him when he’s gone, I enjoy not hearing the air conditioning run. I also enjoy not being cold and not needing to wear a sweater or jacket when it is still officially summer.
