lol i read this and was thinking you were reading my mind!! i have ms so i am very temperature sensitive (too hot i can't walk, too cold my legs feel like they are being hit with sledgehammers!). We keep our AC on 78 usually and some days it gets blazing hot (high 90slow 100's) here in GA and I bump it down to 76 and then nightfall comes & I am freezing looking for my electric blanket!

I am way behind in my emails however I wanted to comment on this and it
may have already been talked about since I am only to this point. We
had our air set on 76. When we got our electric bill ($180….we are
remodeling our bathroom and don't have a roof, insulation, or sheetrock
so I have it closed off; we don't have baseboards down yet, and our
fireplace damper leaks cold air out, and our refridgerator is over 12
years old) I upped the ac to 77. I figured one degree wasn't going to
kill us and it might save a few dollars. Once we got use to 77, I
upped it to 78. Yes, my girls go around in their undies (ages 7 and 3)
and we have the fans going but it works. I don't know how much $$ we
will be saving by lowering it only 2 degrees however when we raised it
up to 77 for company, we were actually cold!!! the only problem i am
having is food melting in my kitchen, lol! i have organic coconut
cream i keep in the cabinet since it gets too hard in the fridge.
we kept the temp on 76, it would stay at a spreadable consistancy but
now it is pure liquid. The chocolate chips in the granola bars are
melted, but we just deal with it. I am waiting to see the next
electric bill to see how much of a difference it made.
enought to save up to at least get insulation and sheet rock back up in
the bathroom (our shower pan leaked).
Melissa in 102 degree OK!
