Our thermostat has humidity built into it, we keep the daytime temp at 71 and for sleeping, 67. We keep the humidity set between 35 and 40%. Having the humidity up keeps the house feeling warmer during the day and evenings.

That's interesting. How is maintenance / mold control on the humidity portion? Do you just have to change a filter every now and again like a regular AC / heat unit or do you have to change out water containers and such?

How long until it gets back to 100 degrees? As a new resident I did check the monthly averages before moving and knew December and January were cold but it is really cold out there with the wind.

It's going to get worse for the next day or two, Opty. Hang on, Spring just sort of shows up one day with no warning in Feb. or March usually, and summer, well, it hits you like a brick.

Winter is officially over when Mojave Max comes out of his den. Groundhog schmoundhog.

This is the time of year when all of us have to work harder to cover for the *******s who don't get flu shots because they think vaccinations will turn them into gay zombie atheists. (Or something. I don't even try to understand what goes through their tiny little minds.)

My workplace gives them out, free, every year in October. Something on the order of 30% of the employees get their free flu shot. The rest are apparently superstitious, ignorant *******s.

It's a whole house unit I adapted to our central air unit, works awsome. These are the same units that millions of houses back east use, dont know why more people out here dont use them. It's hooked up to a water line and is a flow through unit, no containers full of water and the water panel (pad) gets changed yearly. No mold possible with this low of a setting, it's just enoguh to keep the stuffy noses and static shock at ease.
My neighborhood is one of those monkey see monkey do areas, so now I have two neighbors that I'll be installing the same setup for in the next couple weeks.

My good friend in Idaho has this set up and it's awesome.

Modhatter: Welcome!
I moved from Miami 2 years ago to Philadelphia. It's dreadful; weather-wise! My thermostat is set at 90. And it still feels like 60.
And in the summer, I dont use AC at all. Friends are surprised when I said that I could sleep at night like a baby with no AC at 90 F outside

And the worse is the water!!!! It gets cold in 10 minutes RAWWRRRR~~~~

Im a SAHM, so we keep it at 67 during the day. I would like to turn it down at night but the babies won't keep their blankets on & they get very cold, even in layers. So we actually turn the heat up at night to about 69. Not loving the gas and electricity bill this month.
