We live in FL. My DH and I are in a near constant battle about the a/c. I have NO PROBLEM with it getting up to 80-82 in here (with the windows open) without air.
Yesterday, he came home and complained. It was 81 degrees in here with the windows open. KEEP in mind I was also cooking, so likely it would have been a little cooler in the kitchen if I hadn't been. He said he was hot. None of the kids complained! I felt just fine! We weren't sweaty or anything.
So, he closed everything and put the air on and got it down to 77 or so.
Today, he instructed me to leave the air on all day. Which it was running this morning, when it was like 70 outside. The thing is, the roof and attic is hot, and though we had extra insulation blown in, still the house will heat up from the sun beating down on it.
So, I shut the air off.
I am not only frugal, I try to be environmentally conscious. I'd rather not use the energy if I don't have to. And, right now it's 74 degrees outside, and the high will be 80 today.
So, I need to know, am I crazy for letting it go up to 80 degrees in the house?
