I don't get much accomplished when the house is too hot. Everything seems to be a huge effort.
I didn't ride my bike at all this week, because the temperature in the house was around 90 most of the week. Ugh.
First thing in the morning, we set all (I'm talking 6) box fans up in windows and doorways to try to draw in as much cool air from outside as possible. The kids rooms have the fans that stay in the windows. Once the temp starts going up, we close everything up and just run ceiling fans (4 total). When the house gets above 85, we pull out the swamp coolers (we have two portable ones - thanks Rocky) and turn on the air conditioner.
Once the outside temp goes down below the temp in the house, we set up all the fans again.
Our bedroom is the only room that actually keeps the temperature pretty even, as long as we're closed off from the rest of the house. Until we can fix up the rest of the house, that's just how it is.
Not looking forward to the electric bill :(
