So, I heard constant complaints about the temperature of our house over the winter. We kept our heat at the recommended 68 degrees (a far cry from the 63 it used to be on before Abby came home!), but that apparently wasn't warm enough for all of the new people we have in our house these days. The nurses said they were worried about Abby, but it always seemed like the space heater we bought for the room was always aimed right at them!
In typical Maryland fashion, we went from winter to summer in a matter of just a few weeks. While I oh-so-enjoy the lovely spring weather, it just doesn't stay around very long in the mid-atlantic. We're hitting 90 degrees with lots of humidity this week, and now there's a heat advisory for the next few days.
All of this to say that I have already heard the "it's too hot in here for Abby" comments. Again, my house is at the recommended 78 degrees....much, much cooler than the 85 it used to be on!! My nurse today said she was about to open a window because it was so hot. It's not!! (I'm SO not telling them that we're part of SMECO's program where they can override our AC on the really hot days to save electricity...we'll just let them figure that out for themselves!)
I'm contemplating getting a fan, but I can't decide which one I want. I need something that isn't going to take up a lot of space in our already too-cramped room. I don't want an AC unit-just something that might keep things a bit cooler. I'm also slightly concerned about the fan stirring up stuff that might irritate Abby. I know that sometimes happens to me and makes me cough. Suggestions welcome!
Here are a few I've found on Amazon. Thoughts?
Also, I'm interested in knowing...what's your thermostat set on in the summer? Am I way out of the "norm" here?
