If you cannot stand the heat....

June 4th, 2014 at 03:54 pm

No, I did not get out of the kitchen.

I turned on the Air Conditioner.

I held out for as long as I could without Central Air. I was using ceiling fans and a box fan. It's about the longest I have gone into the hot months without AC.

In my area we were actually doing fairly well until we got lots of rain almost everyday last week. Then this week the sun is out, and the temperatures are getting into the lower 90s. That means the humidity has shot up too. And, with no real cooldown at night, it has become too uncomfortable.

There goes the Electric Bill!!!

    In the midwest, it is nearly always humid with high heat and that is when I need my A/C, too.

    I didn't realize how much the humidity made a difference until I started to pay attention. It really affects my gas bills for my vehicle.

    So far I am resisting. Pretty easy to do, though, when you actually have to haul your air conditioners up from the basement and set them in the windows! (Yes, I do miss central air....)
