The heat and humidity here have been suffocating.
It’s that time of the year where nobody wants to go outside because the heat is too unbearable and everyone is counting down the days until fall arrives.
As someone who loves the summertime, I myself have been itching for cooler weather. It’s too hot to do anything outside and it feels like this summer has been more humid than the others. I would be fine if the temperature was hot, but it’s the humidity that overwhelms me. With humidity levels reaching 100% each day, I have no energy to be outside. My AC system has been working tirelessly every day to keep my house cool despite the temperature outside. It’s a battle because I want my house cool but I don’t want to kill my AC system. I try to keep my AC system set to 75 degrees during the extreme heat because it’s low enough to keep my house cool, but not so low that my AC system has to overwork itself. This has worked out well, but it can still feel humid inside my house. It’s like the humidity seeps through every nook and cranny. To combat the humidity as well, I have a large dehumidifier that I have to run all day and night. I keep it in the main living area and let it collect the excess moisture from the air. The dehumidifier collects several buckets of water a day so it’s essential that I use it. Once there’s a break in the temperature, I can put it away until the following summer.
