Addendum: Hot, Hot, Hot!!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Also, I may have to change my habit of waiting until I get home to change the temperature on my home A/C. I leave it at 84 degrees (DH set it there, I am not sure why) when I leave for work.

Then, when I arrive at home, around 5 pm, I set it to 76. And turn on a couple of room fans.

By 9:00 pm, the downstairs is fairly cool. Upstairs, not so much.

I need to rethink this.

    Yes, it is programmable. I just keep using the override. Actually, I discovered, late this afternoon, that the AC is now apparently not working. The fan is, but not the AC. Heck!

    What about a programmable thermostat? They do not cost very much and you can set it so that it will set to 76 an our or so before you come home and then it will go to the higher temperature after you leave for work. We have one. That way it is not running all days when no one is home and the house is not unbearably hot when you arrive home.
