It was 85 degrees today with a low of 57 expected tonight and a high of 93 tomorrow. Should I turn on the AC or just leave the window open with the fan on (like I have now). I know it's gonna cool off at night but would you turn on the AC if you were in my shoes? The house feels stuffy even w/ the fan on and window open and it's still 80 outside at 7:40PM.

I am in a warmer climate than you so i'm more heat tolerant but for me as long as the low for the night is below 70 and above 55 the windows are open.

You would NEVER need AC here then- even on our hottest days of summer (100+ but bone dry with 2 percent humidity), nights cool off into the mid 60s usually. Our climate produces all 3 kinds of wimps- heat wimps, cold wimps, and rain wimps..

San Jose's lowest ever recorded nighttime low was 76F back in the heat wave of July of 2006. Guess what the high that day was?

A diurnal range of only 7 F- that is UNHEARD of here except during a winter rain event. Our summers usually have diurnal ranges of 25-35 degrees.
