I live with a friend in a beautiful townhouse, nevertheless nights here are ridiculous. We are constantly disagreeing for what the temperature within our place should be. He likes it extremely warm, all of that time period. Because we live in the South plus the weather here is usually warm almost year round. I like to run that air conditioner instead, to keep that humidity down. During the working day it’s ok, because I can leave or air it out in my car, if it gets way too stuffy inside, but at night I can not sleep in that hot dwelling. Because our thermostat is located on the bottom floor, where my roommate’s bedroom is in addition, he has his way while using the heat. I bought a portable air conditioner for the upstairs when I realized I had to engage in a weather battle for a good night’s sleep. I have all of the vents shut off upstairs, so the heat doesn’t overtake my little portable a/c at nighttime. So the central HVAC unit runs downstairs for hours and my a/c unit flows upstairs too. The two temps meet through the stairwell, but because heat soars, my unit is working extra hard to cool things down for me. Our power bill is ridiculous, but it truly is totally worth all the more energy my air conditioner is taking, if it means I can sleep enough during the nighttime that I can get up for work the very next day. I think it is after time for either my roommate or myself to obtain another place to live, or someone who shares the same ideas on what the proper room temperature must be.
