Get this...

The air conditioner in my room started to go out about ten days ago when we were having a heat wave.

During the day, it would get uncomfortably warm in my room.

The good news is that I got a new air conditioner on Wednesday.

Our home isn't that big, but we have two swamp coolers and four air conditioners.

As long as they're working, the summer is bearable for me.

(I can handle the heat better than the rest of my family, so they may disagree on how bearable the heat is.)

81 in sunny Orange County tomorrow. I’m loving my 8800 watt solar system. My house thermostat is set at a comfortable 72 degrees. My SCE bill is zero monthly. I designed and installed my solar system myself and I no longer worry about hot summers or dolling out my hard earned cash to the electric company.

... Happy Landings ...

My system has already paid for itself. I paid around $16,000.00 initially for panels, new 120 amp panel retro, inverter, misc.parts, permits and such. I received a little over $15,00.00 in Federal Tax credits. My out of pocket after all was said and done was around $1000.00 which I have saved in electric Bill’s over the past year.

Suppose to be in the mid-60s for me this weekend. San Francisco is one of the few cities where you potentially need a jacket/sweater every day of the year Big Smile

Raccoon.

Your calender dates for thurs through to Sun.
Are our current daily temp’s In Celcius.
Mid winter.
We’ve never had temp’s that cold in the 47yrs I’ve been here
Mornings…*7c to 24/26c. Normally 12 to 14ish O.Night.
This “Climate changing” is certainly changing things round the world.

Weeklund. ——————-
Australia.
We limited to 5kw (household) if on grid. Unlimited if not.
I have 4.2kw.
Runs. 2 storey home plus pool pumps, Covers ALL running/service costs.
Gives us 44c per kw turned into grid after usage. (till 2028.)

Av around $650ish Per yr cash return now. Was over a grand at beginning.
(Service costs rises.)

Initial costs . Out of our pocket.
$16.4k AUD. We were worth MORE than your Dollar then.
Around $1.6 or $1.8c US to AUD.
Now. Around 65C US to $1 AUD.
Somebody likes your president.

Preferably. Have MORE panels than Inverter capacity.
Keeps system MORE efficient
during it’s cycle.
IE max inv input for longer, while sun shining. Wasting a little panel output
at times but higher returns through grid.

We Use Heater and Aircond as WANTED… not can afford.
Leave it on ALL the req’d seasons. 7/8weeks Winter temp’s. three months plus of hot temp’s.
Paid for itself in under 7 yrs.

Oh. Evac Tubes (30) HWS there too.
Near Constant hot water when sun shines or air hot during night.

It's also known as an evaporative cooler.

They only work when the dewpoint is below about 55 degrees, so like chinooker says, it won't work for you.

They're great when the humidity is low.

another near perfect day in Santa Barbara. high was somewhere in the 70s, a bit of damp fog in the morning, but beautiful in the afternoon. Supposed to be 5F cooler tomorrow.

Probably only 200 miles straight line from racoon city, but a world of difference. He’s only about 75 miles from the Pacific Ocean, but about 40F away in daytime high temperature.

If I could afford it, I would love to move to the California coast!

Santa Barbara is one city of many that interests me.

Yes, the cost of living here is quite a lot higher for sure.

When his swamp gets a bit too hot, it cools it down?

Tips and tricks to make living in the heat/sun better:

1. Wear white clothes.
2. Wear a cap.
3. Bring your own water bottle.
4. Drink lots of water.
5. Wear sunscreen.
6. Get yourself a portable fan.

To make inside living better:
1. Replace ALL INCANDESCENTS LIGHTS WITH LED LIGHTS.
2. Shut off electronic appliances when not needed.
3. Get yourself blackout blinds for places you don’t usually go to.
4. Try to eat cold foods rather than hot foods.
5. Lower your power consumption as much as possible.
6. The BLF alternative: Get yourself a solar panel array to make the AC work during the day, and let it rest during the night.

Man, it’s hot.

It’s like Africa hot.

Tarzan couldn’t take this kind of hot.

 

And no, it’s not a dry heat. It’s like breathing-through-a-hot-wet-towel heat.

One trick I like to use when it does get hot, is to put a wet bandana around the back of my neck and draped over the top of my chest. Evaporation cooling is pretty helpful. If its super humid where you are, maybe this doesn’t work?
