It’s after 7pm and it’s still 77° outside. AND it’s 81° inside the damn house.

Maybe that’s not hot to y’all in the South but it’s mighty toasty for us Seattleites, especially when you don’t have air conditioningIt’s after 7pm and it’s still 77° outside. AND it’s 81° inside the damn house.

  1. If you have window fans, turn them to shoot outside for awhile, to move that hot air out. Then reverse when it’s time to go to bed. (I grew up in an old two-story farmhouse with very little insulation and no trees for shade.)

  2. As a born and raised Southerner who didn’t have a/c until 1992, I sympathize! Over 80° in the house is no fun no matter where you are. We definitely survived on our attic fan, which pulled cooler air through the open windows and sucked the hot air into the attic all at the same time, and box fans in all the bedroom windows. Worst case, you could always makes yourself a swamp cooler.

  3. I moved south from NJ, so I understand. Been here 14 years now, but I keep my air at 81-82, and it’s very comfy for me unless I’m working around the house. When I go to my friend’s who keeps it upper 70s, I freeze, especially when the air is blowing. As I get older, I less tolerate the temp. extremes.

  4. Do you have a basement? I button up all of the windows and put a fan at the bottom of the basement steps. Also, blast a fan up the fireplace chimney.
