As a big guy, I was dependent upon air conditioning. I was uncomfortable indoors if the temperature was above 72 degrees. I used to say, “You didn’t get the memo? I have a ‘Keep Refrigerated’ requirement.” As of the writing of this post, I haven’t turned the air conditioner on at home yet. I do use a dehumidifier inside and I have floor and ceiling fans, but the central air has remained off. This is a major change from previous years.
Having lost the majority of my insulation, I am much more prone to get cold in the winter, and it turns out that I’m much more able to handle warm places comfortably. My electric cooperative won’t know what to do with themselves.
