    When do you turn the air on?

    A question I ask every year at this time:

    True... I have had ours on once because I could not sleep. I am worried that our house will be 80 tonight when I try to go to sleep...

    Re: When do you turn the air on?

    Actually, I was just lying. I don't even have air conditioning. Without the humidity here it usually works just to have some fans. I do wish I have it though when I try to sleep. Last night it was probably 95 in my room and no fan.

    I think the first time this year was late March to early April. What, you were still getting snow then.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    It's already been on. My current house is a story and a half, and the upstairs gets stuffy quickly. Luckily, I'm moving in a week or two.

    Re: When do you turn the air on?

    It's been on for a while now. Doesn't mean that it has been running though. I come from a family that likes it cold. I think the heat at night in my parent's house is set at like 58. Only warms up to 64 or so during the day. A/C is 73 during the day and 68 at night. Plus we all suffer from nasty allergies so we close up the house pretty early.

    It's on now. Thanks to the tree pollen in the air.

    Basically when I start to feel miserable. Fortunately that hasn't happened yet.

    It's been way to nice to even think about turning it on. Once it gets muggy out the heat pump will be running.

    I sleep in the daytime. It's wayyyyy too warm if it's not on.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: When do you turn the air on?

    I've had mine on off and on... keeping the place a bit cooler than the rest of you but half of the time I've had it on it's been because of humidity rather than temperature... I need to get a dehumidifier but those cost money


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
