How do you handle days like this?

It's only in the lower 70's, raining lightly & a very lite breeze. The windows are open, but it's so muggy in the house that everything feels almost sticky to the touch. It's not really hot enough to run the A/C.

How do you deal with days like that?

  • I hate humidity, so the ac would be on just to clear the air.

  • I run the AC just to pull the humidity out of the air. That's what makes it miserable in the house.

  • I would run it to get rid of the humidity. I suppose if you have fans, you could try turning them on. At least it would move the air around, which might help a bit.

  • I would close the windows, turn a/c low enough to run one or two cycles and then turn the temp back up so it takes some moisture out of the air.

  • We don't usually get that kind of mugginess in Colorado, but when we do, it's miserable. We just sweat on through it.

  • I hear ya, & it's tempting. But it's not hot & humid tho. I would really have to set the A/C pretty low, to like 72 to even get it to kick on.

  • OK- I broke down & turned on the A/C on. It started raining harder, so the windows had to be closed anyway. It's staying comfortable at 73 non-humid degrees! :p
