      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. when

      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. Hopefully

      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!

      I was actually getting used to it. Work I was actually cold because we

      had the A/C so low. Now at home I am actually keeping my A/C at 74

      instead of 70 .
