My thermostat is set to 26, when no one but the doggie is home. At 5pm it drops to 25 and at 9 it drops to 23 where is stay overnight. Granted that's in the kitchen, the bedroom is usually 2 degrees warmer but there are two well placed fans there. The drapes and blines are closed and the AC usually doesn't kick in until 4 or 5pm later in the afternoon the next day. Today might be different because it's super hot.
Is that unreasonable or am I "soft"?
Lots of media attention has been focused on people who do or don't use AC in recent weeks. Here's an example: http://www.theglobea...article4401655/
An Extreme Heat Alert has been issues and "Cooling Centers" have been opened. I wonder what the unionized wages of the attendants of the "Cooling Centre" are?
So who here is militant about their non-use of the wonderful luxury that is Air Conditioning? I honestly couldn't enjoy my evening later today if my place didn't have AC, I would rather be in an Air Conditioned office at work.
