    Last year I could deal with the 100 degree temps with AC only running part time.

    This year, it's in the 90s and upstairs in Brian and my rooms... 100+ last night.

    I was sleeping on my back and I remember rolling over and feeling sweat roll down my chest.

    Yeah, I'm changing my bedsheets tonight before I go to bed, and I flipped on my central air. I had enough of this shit. haha

    I blame it on Jamie! She had hers runnin non stop. :p

    Trying to save $$? Get a 110v window unit for night time use. $100 at wal-mart. But it'll pay for itself in a month of saved electricity vs a full central air system.

    your typical 500 sqft window unit costs as much to run as 2 window fans.

    Then Brians going to continue sweating his ass off... lol

    My electric bill has been 0, 0 and 5.79 so far. Credits FTW.

    I don't care if it gets up to 100, I'd rather pay 100 than sleep in 100 degree heat with a box fan on.

    If you can run central air all the time and get away with $100 electric bills, more power to you.

    I pull that and I'm out $300-400 a month.

    Programmable Tstat FTW. It'll only be running at night. So I can sleep... and not in my own sweat.

    My 1195 sq ft apartment never got past 150 for electric, and the windows were just as bad as they are here.

    It'll be set to 75 5p-7a and 80 (where it normally sits without it on) 7a-5p.

    Solar power FTMFW. We power everything except the dryer and air conditioning (the blower is on solar, but the condenser etc isn't) and we save a bunch. I think last month we paid 80 bucks.
