Wish I could send you a cool shower. We have been having lower than normal temperatures but the rain is making up for it. We are about 17 inches above normal the last count. The banks of our pond are so wet we can't take our golf cart down by the pond to feed the fish. With all the rain I'm sure they have lots to eat. It seems we always have too much of something. emoticon

Good Luck with summer in California. I don't know what I would do without central air.
I'm glade we had a cooler than normal spring or it could have been worse here. Now I just need to hold on until fall. We have had some much needed rain so that has helped. We also planted some trees. When we built the house, the builder took out some of the trees I wanted left. It sure does help with the power bill with some trees shading the house. Hopefully they grow fast. We planted maples so they should.

California is going to be very hot starting tomorrow. We have a window a/c that keeps the living room cool. But the PG&E will go up. Can't win for losing.

Never Give Up!!!

Well I have done all the checks and all the appliances and electrical gadgets are energy efficient. Now it's just wait for the next power bill. Hopefully it's better.

Hello friend, I would for sure get that checked out! Is the air conditioner shutting off regularly? It just might be your thermostats. Maybe it is not working correctly. Also, make sure that you do not have the cold air returns blocked in any way! The well is not going to pull that much power. We have a well too. Also, we have more sq footage then you do because we have 4 children! If I were you too, I would call the power company and schedule an energy survey of your home! Please do me a favor and just talk to them 'cause something is not right!! Please keep me posted! Hugs, Rose:)) emoticon

We built a much bigger house than we needed. The property we bought had convents that required a minimum of 1600 square feet. With the porches and all the heated and cooled area, I think we are at 2400 square feet. Much too big for 2 people. We also have a hot tub and run over business from the property. We are running 3 computers as well as some other equipment. Our power bill is still higher than both our power bills in Florida (house and business). We don't have a water bill because we have a well but I can't believe it takes that much power to run the well. Trust me, I ask myself every month - What is going on! I'm still trying to find out how to cut the bill. I'm beginning to believe it's the air conditioner. We have had problems with it since it was installed. We keep the thermostat on 80 but it doesn't seem to help.

We like to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air but summer in GA can get to hot from June to September. Although the nights are usually comfortable. My hubby has COPD and sleeps with a bipap machine and oxygen so he usually needs the air. He is 70 and I am 69 getting to the 70's fast. We find as we get older the extreme heat and cold tends to affect us more. The winters are better. We can light the fireplace and enjoy a cozy house. It does help with the electric bill but the price of firewood can be expensive. I'm on a average billing plan with the power company and I wish my bills were that low. Mine runs between 290 to 305 a month.

Hello friend of mine! I sure hope that the repairman does come tomorrow! We do not run the air. We love the windows open and we have ceiling fans that we run:) we also have tile throughout our home and that in itself keeps it cool! We save a lot of money by not running the air! Our electric bills run between $30-40.00 a month!!!! I like that!! And all the critters you hear at night in the country, makes for an awesome night sleep!! emoticon

The air conditioner went out so I'm sitting in the house with the windows open tonight. The repairman couldn't finish the job today because it started to rain. Hopefully he can finish it tomorrow before the afternoon heat. This is not the time to be without air. It is nice to hear the sounds of a country night. At least the Whip-poor-will isn't so loud tonight that I can't watch TV. I love the country!
