Air Conditioner

Once again we are getting into degrees about 100. I go outside – well outside meaning a quick walk to my car – and I am amazed that anyone deliberately settled here pre air conditioner days.
My power bill is around $300 to $400. The local news did a spot on “no-cost tips to help save on your cooling costs.” The firs tip: Set your thermostat between 78 to 80 degrees when you are home and up to 85 degrees when you are away.
Are they crazy? 80 degrees is hot! Well not as hot as 100 degrees but still. I’m guessing setting the temperature to 65 degrees isn’t going to save much electricity.
