I recently decided to move farther south, but I grew up in the southern part of my state, which meant I was close to the beach.
Despite the fact that I was living in the northern part for over twenty years.
I moved there because my husband wanted to, and even though I got divorced from him, I still lived in the northern part for 11 years after the divorce. One thing I forgot about from my southern afternoons, though, was how much more I need a/c! Don’t get me wrong, I used the a/c all the time while living in the northern section too, however our current a/c down here in the southern half just never shuts off. If you go out in the middle of the evening, it’s still 79 degrees. The thermostat setting on the a/c is now 68, even though I like 71. It’s just too high-priced to constantly keep running the a/c all day and all evening. The only problem I discovered with setting the thermostat higher was that I just couldn’t sleep. In the evening, I wanted more a/c. In fact, if I could get it to blow right on me, that would have been ideal. I decided that a decent medium would be to go get myself a portable a/c or possibly a window a/c unit. I headed out to the house store, and I decided to supplement the central cooling with a small window a/c for our family room. It has worked out really well, and I am getting a great night’s sleep every day.
