Last Saturday I was left with no choice but to turn on the AC. It was Too Hot, so much so, that I dreamt about the Kool and the Gang song. It's been more temperate since then, especially with the rain cooling things down.

(My 1st post- Hello, everybody! )

That is seriously yucky.

Meh, I was told that was why my house had no screens. I put in new windows as my first priority (not just because they didn't have screens) and I have my windows open plenty. Had them open mid March through late May and mid September-present. I think the fall and autumn here (from my limited time) are perfect for window open weather. I think a big difference is what I consider cold and what the natives of the area consider cold

I think this illustrates the difference. 10/11 high of 68, low of 59. To me, no way heat is needed with those temps. It had also been warmer the days before, so my house temp did not even drop into the 60's. Was 71 the next morning. I set the house to 65, I'll let it drop down a little below that early in the cold season sometimes if the temp is expected to pick up soon

I grew up in NH and my wife Canada. Now anything below 60 is cold to both of us.

It doesn't take long.

Funny, my house was too cold when I got home so I bumped up the heat to 72 to take the chill out of the air!

Open windows at night while it is in the 50s. House cools down to 68. No A/C is necessary today because house only heated up to 73!

Love love love Fall!

If my house gets to about 75*, the AC kicks on automatically. I never turn it off. I don't care what the calendar says. The thermostat is way more important than the date.
