The hard thing about summer now is the humidity. Muggy weather makes us feel hotter than it actually is and makes us sweatier, too. During the day I use ventilation and circulation to cool our home by opening our windows and using the electric fan. At night however, to avoid tossing and turning I’ve started using my air conditioner. So, at what temperature should I be setting it now that we are in the heat of summer? In the past I’ve been told to set it at about 25 degrees. I set it on timer for a few hours at night. It is quite cool and I find myself sleeping with a warm blanket. So last night I took my student’s word of advice and set it at 28 degrees (Cool Biz Campaign). I used a lighter blanket and it was just as comfortable!
I survived four years in Thailand without an air conditioner so with some adjusting it really shouldn’t be that hard to beat the heat. An air conditioner is a simple pleasure, but at the same time I’m trying to be more friendly to the environment as well as my wallet.
