The heat & humidity here have been suffocating.
It’s that time of the year where nobody wants to go outside because the heat is too unbearable & all the people is counting down the nights until fall arrives.
As someone who enjoys the summertime, I myself have been itching for cooler weather. It’s too overheated to do anything outside & it feels like this Summer has been more humid than the others. I would be great if the temperature was hot, however it’s the humidity that overwhelms me. With humidity levels reaching 100% each day, I have no energy to be outside. My A/C system has been laboring tirelessly every day to keep my loft cool despite the temperature outside. It’s a battle because I want my loft cool although I don’t want to kill my A/C system. I try to keep my A/C system set to 73 degrees during the extreme heat because it’s low enough to keep my loft cool, however not so low that my A/C system has to overwork itself. This has worked out well, however it can still know humid inside my house. It’s like the humidity seeps through every nook & cranny. To combat the humidity as well, I have a sizable dehumidifier that I have to run all day & night. I keep it in the main living area & 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.
