90℉ somewhere other than here, it's 95℉ now and humid as all get out. I can assure you the a/c works in my '87 4Runner & '04 Jeep..lol.
It's only 90 but I tell you what, I feel like I need scuba gear to breath when I go outside. It's not even July yet, much less August, and it feels like that bad place some people go when they die.
I can remember when I was a kid it hitting 110F and even 115F here. The winters were colder too. Thing is, it wasn't quite as humid. The wind from the south bringing in the gulf moisture just makes it awful. Heck, even at night it is hot come August or so. Sometimes it struggles to get below 80 the dew point is so high.
I do understand that; in January 2018 we had a new 3 ton RUUD 14 seer central heat pump system and a Daiken mini split heat pump system in the rec room installed by the company my son works for and our power bill has been reduced by 2/3. I even have to cut the thermostat back at times or the wife will have icicles hanging off the ceilings in the summer and inferno setting in the winter yet the power bill is so much lower than the previous years. We figure it will pay for itself in a very short time.
My neighbors are actually glad to have the upgrade. They grumble a bit about the cost, they had to gut and replace all the duct work as well, but they know it is going to pay off in a few years even with the cost of the duct work. The people that originally did the duct work must have been a spider in a past life. It looked that bad not to mention, some of it was to small. I had to go into their attic once to replace a phone line after lightening hit them. I mentioned several things that wasn't right and they have since got all of it fixed. The local power company said their home, old as it is, is one of the most efficient they have tested. Even some new homes aren't as good.
Power went out in the local city so my cell phone is dead, likely a LOT of other peoples too. I hope they get power back soon. It's a bad time to be without a A/C for elderly and sick plus no phones if someone needs 911. Right now, I'm glad I'm on the county circuit for power. It's been out for like 4 or 5 hours too.
