Summer 2018 is breaking heat records around the world. And we’re burning more fossil fuels because of it.

A/C units aren’t the biggest GHG creators, but being aware of your energy use helps you save money and reduce GHGs. If everyone does that, it will make a big difference! How are you coping with the heat this summer? Let us know in the comments!

    Don't forget that wet cloth works well on the back of your neck too!
    Getting old helps cut the a/c use down too lol. TY Recydlebank for the helpful tips and hints over the years!

    No AC units in my place b/c I prefer the heat to the cold temps year round. I know it's unusual, but if I get to cold I get hives. Few people come to see me and when I go to see them I wear a sweater if they've got their AC set for the tundra LOL

    I happen to live near a ice making facility, and so I usually cool the house down with blocks of ice in front of a oscillating fan. My electric bill is way lower than any of my neighbors....and my house is much colder inside also. :)

    I have 2 small room air conditioners. They're in my bedroom closet. I find I really don't need them in this part of the country.
