When did you A/C go in.

Only the 2nd day since the beginning of spring that it's been hot so my DH said we are still going to wait a week or so to put in our A/C any one jump the gun already.

  • Ours has been on off and on since April depending on how hot it is outside. We dont really "wait" we just go with if we arent comfortable it goes on.

  • Oh yeah. One loud obnoxious window air conditioner already in on the top level. Bottom level window airconditioner going in today or tomorrow. It was 92 degrees on Thursday....thank goodness that loud window airconditioner was in and running..

  • It goes on when the house temp hits 83 or above. I will cut it on set at 80.

  • My bedroom a/c unit has been in and running since April. The ones in the kids room and livingroom have been in since April as well, but only used as needed.

  • Ours has been on for week or so, my SO said we couldn't turn it on until June to open the windows. Well he gets to sit in AC at work all night while me and the kids sweat it out at home, and he expects the house clean when its 87 in here! I don't think so lol , I turned it on a over a week ago and he grumbled but the kids were more happy and everyones sleeps better. It in the 90 here today outside no way am I turning it off anytime soon Our lot has no trees so we get the sun all day long.

  • We live in NC, so it's not unusual for us to turn on our AC in the middle of Jan/Feb. The one in our bedroom stays on all year round.

  • We don't have AC. At all. But we live up north. It gets hot but not bad enough we can't suffer through the worst days with just some fans. When we moved here last summer the first week it was in the upper 90s. We just sucked it up.
