There IS a difference between dry heat and moist heat. No doubt about it.
My central air has been broken, kaput, shot, dead, destroyed... busted, for just over 2 weeks now. It's been warm in the house, but with cooler nights, lots of room fans, closing everything down during the day, opening windows wide to catch any breeze... it's been bearable. Most days.
Fast forward to this week. Rainy and warm. Not too hot, but just enough to make a sauna with the moisture and the sun. As I type this, the sweat is glistening on my skin and trickling down my back. And I think it's only 20 degrees celsius outside and by the thermostat, 24 in here. Lordy! At some points over the last couple weeks, it got up to 26 and 27 degrees celsius in the house. Not great for sleeping even though it cooled down, but it seemed "livable". Weird.
But my saviours have finally come. The a/c installers are here and working away installing a new unit. Just in time 'cause it promises to be like this the next couple of days. YIPPEE! Never thought I'd be so happy to see a couple of sweaty guys, lol.
