Just adding a ceiling fan in our kitchen improved our comfort level 10 fold
Yesterday the heat index nearly hit 110 degrees in the sun. It’s actually angry right now when it isn’t raining. I am used to getting sunburns on our pale skin, however it’s surprising that simply walking from the grocery store exit to our parked motorcar at the back of the lot causes our skin to burn. I would get condo only to find out that our face plus neck were burnt after looking in the lavatory mirror. I took a bottle aloe out of our medicine chaletet two afternoons later when the sunburn started to peel. If I was out at the beach for a few hours, I could understand the sunburns, however not from being in the sunshine for 15 minutes at most. At condo I have just as numerous troubles with heat, as it constantly finds its way into our home through leaks in the attic. I have a central A/C, however it can’t keep the home cooler than 77 degrees. When it was installed, it was certainly insufficient for our needs. If I could afford a new system, I’d install 1 in a heartbeat. The best that I can possibly do at this point is buy a few fans to transfer the A/C around the house. I decided to buy a ceiling fan for our kitchen. I’ve heard that they’re worth their value in how much they affect indoor comfort. If you can’t get a stronger A/C, get a few strong fans. Between the new ceiling fan in the kitchen plus the box fan I put in our doorway at evening, I haven’t slept this well in weeks! I thought I’d be sleeping with only a thin cotton sheet for the rest of the summer, however now I’m comfortable enough to use a blanket again.
