ergot: Humidity not too bad? That may have been the forecast, but the reality is that it's been pretty darn humid. The effectiveness of swamp coolers has been pretty limited thanks to the lingering clouds. This has been good weather for refrigerated air conditioning!

Air conditioning emissions could get worse
Which is why it's important to increase the efficiency of the air conditioners themselves and the methods used to generate energy.

I'm in favor of staying cool anyway possible during the summer. The problem is the cost and so if I can stay cool without spending a lot of money, then that's the way to go!

We've made it half way through summer and so far I've only had to have my cooler repaired five times. Luckily the handyman doesn't charge an arm and a leg, but going without a cooler even for a few hours can be a bad experience this time of year. I hope I make it the rest of the summer without any hassles!

ShotgunMary: A friend of mine has had her cooler break down every other week all summer long. She would like to get a new cooler, but can't really afford it. So far she's been lucky to get used parts and she knows a couple guys who don't charge much for helping out or will even do some things for free. But still it's a pain in the neck when you never know when you're cooler is going to crap out on you!

twister: If you're friend survived this long, she's in the clear for the next several months. No need for a cooler now probably until about the end of April 2020. Of course, she'll need to get her furnace going pretty soon. How's that working for her?

BoraxBill: She got the furnace going with the help of a local handyman. He only charged $20. So it looks like she's set until the weather heats up, but the handyman said he might be able to get her cooler going and he's reasonable when it comes to the amount of money he charges. He's not one of those who gouges customers for everything he can get.
