but today is the day. The air conditioners are going in. Typically, the A/C goes in sometime in late June. We try not to run it constantly, but it all depends on Mother Nature. I know that the window units aren't the most efficient, but it is what we have.
The kids have box fans in their bedrooms, which actually do a nice job cooling their rooms, especially Sassy's room. We do have A/C for them, but hopefully we won't need them.
The downstairs and our bedroom....those are animals of a different color. The downstairs is just heavy with humidity. As I type, my arms are sticking to the desk. The floor in the kitchen just is sticky. I think it is 20 degrees cooler OUTSIDE than it is in the house. And our bedroom...I need it cooler. Our windows face South, so it just retains heat.
While I was enjoying the prospect of lower electric bills....the time has come. The good thing? Here in CT, we have short summers, so it may be 6 weeks of use. Not horrible. I am looking forward to actually getting some sleep tonight, and being able to sit in the living room without sweat running down my back.
