Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season?

Do you have central air or window units? Or none?

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on?

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot?

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? Yea for about a month I think

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? Central

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? Right now it's on 74 and I think that's what we usually keep it on.

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot? If Marissas in the car I use the AC bc she doesn't really like the wind in her face, but if it's just me I have windows down.


It's soooooooo hot! I really want to move to a place that doesn't get higher than like 80 degrees.

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? I was holding off for a while but finally turned iit on yesterday when we had some company. It's been in the 90's here.

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? Central air

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? All I know is that last night I set it to 70 degrees, and I woke up in the morning and it was freezing... The temp was 60!!! I think we need to get it serviced.

Do you always use the AC in the car when it's hot? No, I prefer windows down but for Kylie's sake I'll use it when nessacary.

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? not yet

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? We have a large window unit that is actually mounted in the wall of the house

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? I prefer 72, but it rarely gets that low in the summer even if I keep it on all day.

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot? If the kids are with me. If not, I tough it out to save a little gas LOL

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? Yes, on and off for months now. I try to keep the windows open and fans on for as long as possible the first part of the day.

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? Central

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? Depends if we are on the 1st or 2nd floor. We keep it cooler if we are upstairs since it's a lot hotter up there but for the most part we do somewhere around 74. Our AC is super powerful and we get cold fast.

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot? I like to have the windows down but if it's really hot then I use the AC so Leela isn't too hot. Even if the AC is on I will have the window down some anyways for fresh air.

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? Yes, we had a couple hot days here.

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? None. We have a "swamp cooler" which is really called evaporative cooling. They use them out here cause of the low humidity.There's one big vent on the ceiling and that's where the air comes through. Works well, good for the environment as no freon is used (only water) and uses a lot less energy!

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? No idea, we don't have a temp. controller.

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot? If it worked I would LOL. We really need to get it fixed.

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? A/C is yr around out here. We did survive 2.5 weeks without A/C when it wasn't working, thanks to ceiling fans, but we much prefer to have the A/C on. It's much more comfortable. Before we left San Diego in March - We had a few days where the A/C was needed already, but very few.

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? Central.

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? During the day it's around 74 or 75. . . Once Em goes down, I turn it to 72, which is as low as it goes. Upstairs doesn't get as cool as downstairs, so I lower it after she goes to bed to start cooling it down up there for when we go to bed. It stays at 72 all night. In SD - We had it down to 68/67 at night, we like it COLD at night, but we can't go that low here.

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot? Yes - Because of Emmersyn. DH drives home with the windows down & A/C off to save on gas. But if Emmersyn is in the car with us, the wind from all the windows being down is too much for her.

Have you ever seen that show Myth Busters? They did an experiment and found that the extra drag on the car from the windows being opened made it so that they ran out of gas at about the same time as someone using AC.

Have you had to use the AC in your house yet this season? LMAO we live in louisiana, we pretty much run the A/C year round, except for maybe 2 months. it was 93 today, will be 102-103 this week.

Do you have central air or window units? Or none? definitely central!!

What temp do you keep the house at when the AC is on? 70ish

Do you always use AC in the car when it's hot? ALWAYS

this is funny b/c my bro and SIL moved from here to indiana a few months back. they got a rent house, and moved in. never even noticed the house had no A/C b/c here, that is completely unheard of! when they realized, they asked the landlord to go half with them on some window units and he refused. my SIL is 8 months preggo and miserable, so they got one and put it in the LR and have been sleeping in there. they just got one for their bedroom today. we were all just in shock b/c we've lived here all our lives and never heard of a house with no A/C.

ok just reading through all the responses...for those who put your car windows down and don't use A/C...i had a car with no A/C for like 2.5 years and had no choice. everywhere i went, when i got there i was drenched in sweat and stunk. i hated it! i would never purposely do that!
