    The A/C is set at 85! What! We operate on menopause rules in tis house. It’s cheaper to pay a little more for electricity than to pay for an extended recovery from a major injury. I installed new 21 SEER units and 12 inches of attic insulation so somebody can stay cool and I can stay alive.

    @mikie2

    I’m with you mikie


    You won’t age rapidly in my house……..nice and cold.


    Anyway, I thought 85 was a heat wave!!

    77 here and it’s quite cool enough for me, If I get a little warmer I turn on a fan. Hubby uses a fan more than I do anyway. In the kitchen he turns it down to 74 because it gets hot while cooking. Joy must be past the menopause to put up with living in an oven..

    Central Air came into my abode in the 6th month of carrying the first child. It was upgraded 5 years ago to deal with another “issue”.
    .
    Or, just be like an unnamed senior citizen who didn’t want to pay a “$300” utility bill but had to pay $500+ deductible for an overnight hospital stay for heat related problems.

    Nice to see you out, er, back Marg. SS told us you went away for vacation purposes. Now she’s not here. The plot stickies.

    Power and Light is not one of my favorite charities.
    If you turn off your air conditioning here, it will run for several hours dehumidifying before it can bring down the temperature.

    Yes, I too would like it if someone could explain Jerry’s comment. I have not been able to decipher it.

    I’ve been keeping house at 84F setting lately, but down to 82 for last night (as night time forecast low was 88 and humidity was up to 30%). I often lower temp if I have a lot of indoor activity, but kept it the same while I cooked a batch of beets yesterday to freeze. I’ve been adding more root veggies to my chili – parsnips, carrots and now beets


    Burls nod to bugs is his shirt and West Nile is a problem in much of the country

    It’s all about personal comfort.


    What’s comfortable for you in your home is what works.


    Personally, I wouldn’t be able to even visit you with an 84% thermostat.
    I keep mine at 66%……….I don’t like it cool, I like it cold

    My take on Jerry’s comment was that Burl is too cheap to lower the thermostat below 85 degrees and that he is also too cheap to pay overtime pay.

    When we lived in Vegas the thermo was set at 78, The house was built like a fortress, it was cold in there, Here in the PacNorthwest the thermo is at 77 and it is hot in here. It hasd to do with what Mikie2 says, Insulation and more of it.
    Plus it costs money to run the A/C all the time, My kids in Vegas kept their’s at 80.
    I’m surprised, knowing how cheap the Pennys are, that they aren’t at some buffet, eating real slow, just to take advantage of their A/C
