For any of you who’ve been following this blog, you know that I have been without air conditioning in my upstairs for the whole summer – and we’ve had some very hot days in Phoenix.  And that means it’s been quite uncomfortable to work in my office and I just didn’t do videos for that reason.  And for much of this time I was sleeping downstairs on the couch.

Actually, the a.c. unit went out last summer.  I can tell you, I really learned how much electricity money the old unit cost me when I didn’t have it working.  My monthly electric bill went down my $50.00 a month.  Wow.  So now I’m going to replace the unit downstairs, because it is the same vintage as the old upstairs one.  That should really reduce my bill further.

In addition, I also use a computer controlled electric unit that regulates when certain appliances can run.  For instance, my water heater only runs from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm weekdays and all weekend.  I’ve been doing this for many years and that also makes a difference.  My dryer and the dishwasher are only run during those times.

I’m looking into solar – Phoenix is a great place for that – I would love to be paid for generating electricity.  All this new technology will eventually pay off for energy in general.  I would imagine that an efficient solar car would be lovely for Phoenix – except it wouldn’t work when parked in the garage or covered parking.  Efficient battery plug-ins, perhaps…

Anyway, the new a.c. unit for downstairs has to work – that’s where Sueño and Gracie abide.

So as the summer ends I have a more-or-less whole house again.

Wishing everyone has a whole house – and  A.C. where necessary,
