Summer weather is very hot and humid the closer that you get to the equator.
I live in a small town that has average summer temperatures around 90 or 100 degrees.
It’s almost impossible to keep the apartment cool when the temperature is so warm. The worst problem is definitely the humidity. Even when the air conditioner is running on full blast, the humidity is still awful. The moisture in the air makes it feel very heavy. The moment that I walk outside, I immediately begin to sweat. There is hardly ever much of a breeze which makes things even worse. I thought the air conditioner was broken one afternoon, but the equipment couldn’t work against the humidity. The HVAC repair service told me to buy a dehumidifier to help the indoor air problem. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a dehumidifier, but I actually found several different models that were affordable. I decided to place the dehumidifier and the living room, because that is where I spend most of my time. When I get home from work in the afternoon, I usually sit down on the couch and watch television for a couple of hours before dinner. That is the time of the day when I wish I was cooler after a long day at work. I have noticed that the air conditioner doesn’t seem to run as frequently, even though the air is cool. Before I bought the dehumidifier, the HVAC equipment seemed to run all day and most of the night. Now it actually stops working and the motor gets a break. I’m sure that is good for my budget and the machine.
