I've been opening the windows & using the fan so far, but it's getting hot enough that I might have to break down and use the air conditioning. Right now my thermostat says it's 79 in the house, I think cooking dinner bumped it up a couple degrees!

Without hesitation. I can stand being cold in the winter. I can't stand being hot in my house after working outside all day.

I have a window unit that must be in desperate need of a cleaning, because my eyes get itchy when I have the A/C on. I have it on periodically though, because there is too much moisture in the air and the house smells musty when the A/C is off. I prefer open windows when I'm home.

been on for weeks. Son has allergies and I hate a hot house. My system is extremely efficient so it hardly costs more than normal even leaving it on. Better than turning off, letting the house heat up, and then turning it on again. I spend alot of time outside so I get my fresh air that way

... begun using it? Ours has been on for over a month! I have allergies, so open windows are not a possibility for us.

Yes be very careful with this, I lived in an old apartment once that had a window unit, got really sick because it was FULL OF MOLD, it does need to be cleaned.

We've been using ours for a while. We've got two little kids who take their afternoon nap in a south-facing bedroom, allergies, and no ceiling fans. We don't blast it, though - it's set to maintain a comfortable temperature, usually in the 72-75 range.
