using less and less a/c

A human being can get used to just about any conditions.

Me and our family were without cooling system for a honestly long time, and we simply made use of fans or open windows and doors when there was a fine cross breeze to take advantage of, however dealing with the heat became a way of life.

after having to cope without any form of central cooling system, we were finally able to get the funds together to install an cooling system recently… The first time that cool was once again coursing through the house, it felt amazing. We all felt so spoiled to have cooling system once more, however, we had also built up a tolerance to the heat. That first night, I felt that our room was particularly cold! I went to go check the thermostat and the temperature was only 71 degrees. That was odd to me, because I knew that there was a time in the past when I would turn the thermostat down at such a temperature, but now it was more than enough; Going without cooling system for so long has kind of helped myself and others and our family to set more conservative un-even temperatures on the thermostat now that we are more comfortable with them, i guess that is a fantastic thing that came out of not being able to use cooling system for so long! We can set the thermostat higher in the summertime and still be just as comfortable as when we used to set lower un-even temperatures back when we were used to having an cooling system to take advantage of. That is honestly be saving us money on our electric bills.
