Re: Re: Re: Re: heat


We only do window a/c in two rooms of our house and then only for
sleeping on extremely humid/hot nights. The rest of the time our little
house is adequately cooled by box and/or ceiling fans. Lots of windows
on all sides so once we turn on the fans and position at least two to
blow out, we get a really nice cross breeze going that cools the house
well.
