Thermostat mysteries. It's warm in the house even though it's cool outside.
My partner and I have this argument all the time.
We normally keep the thermostat at 73º over night.
Tonight It's 68º outside so the windows are open. Yet the thermostat currently reads 78º and it still feels warm [italic] inside [/italic] the house.
When I say, "It feels warm- let's turn on the air to sleep", my partner snaps at me,[italic] "It is 60º outside!" [/italic]
Ok yeah, but no. It is 65º, actually. The point is moot, however, because we have no cross breeze and it is still warm [italic]inside[/italic]. The thermostat is still reading 78º. I can see it from here. But that doesn't matter, apparently, because [italic]outside [/italic] it is nice.
So why don't we have the air on?
Y'all need to buy one of these, OP.
Air King makes a good and powerful one. Put in any window and raise the windows in your bedroom.
I have one and I use it extensively in the spring and fall. It is heaven sleeping with the windows open with no air conditioning and the cool breeze flowing through the house.
Whats the humidity? Maybe thats why it feel warmer.
If he doesn't want the A/C on, at east turn on the fan, maybe it will bring the cool air in.
If it's humid, turn on the air for awhile.
Your building has retained heat from previous hot days. Your bodies create heat.
Leaving the window open will not lower the temperature by much more than a degree or two by morning.
You're in Georgia or Florida aren't you?
If you have an attic, I'd recommend an attic fan on a thermostat. Since putting one in, we've found our house gets cooler much more quickly in the evening.
OP - so turn the A/C on. Problem solved.
To start with, ditch that thin-blooded fool. It's impossible to sleep in a hot room.
Last time I had my AC worked on, the tech (who provided jerk-off material for weeks) told me not to run it when it dropped below 70 outside. Bad for the motor or something. I tuned out early in the conversation.
Fuck him. Turn the AC on.
You have really strong insulation.
Camp in the backyard, OP.
The heat's coming from *inside* the house!
Put at least one fan in a window to circulate the air better when you open the windows at night. You'd love the white fan noise and cool breeze in your bedroom, perfect sleeping conditions.
Use one of these when it's cooler outside than it is inside.
Why pay $$ to cool your bedroom with air conditioning when a window fan will do the same job at 1/10th the cost?
