The cool summer mornings in the 50s and low 60s are one of the best things about living in Colorado. I turn on the attic fan for about an hour to get the house down to 67 or so, then close up the windows by 7:00 a.m. and it rarely rises above 72 on any given day.

I do the same. A whole house fan is a wonderfully efficient way to draw in the cool morning air and dump the hot air out through the attic vents.

A benefit of having a well insulated house with low E windows is that they retain the coolness.

With just a single window air conditioner in the family room and a fan, I can easily cool that entire floor even if the afternoon temps get into the 90s.

While it gets cool in Pueblo at night i still have to keep my central air on 24/7 this time of year as the highs are usually 95-105. But i love the heat!

I get up early and walk my dog in an open space with lots of trees and tallgrass near my house. We enjoy the cool mornings, the early sunshine, and listening to the bird calling out.

I am a little bummed that it's getting hot enough to need to turn my AC on. I prefer being able to open up the house and get fresh air.
