When my mom is here, she sleeps in the basement - so the a/c unit is greatly needed upstairs.

That's unbearable. You definitely need A/C.

Last night I ordered a portable a/c unit for the bedroom. Most were out of stock, but I managed to find one online that said they could deliver between July 11-13. But then after ordering, it said due to delivery demands, there's a possibility it would be late. I'm obviously expecting it maybe mid week next week, or even a bit later.
Where do you live? You don't have a local hardware store that has them in stock? Window units are not hard to install, just make sure your electrical circuit can handle it.

Good plan. Though that seems a bit warm for a basement in my experience.

Looking at my local hourly forecast our high will be 96 or 97 with humidity around 44%. But as the temp goes down in the evening the humidity climbs up. RIght now (3:30 am) it's 77 with 100% humidity.

why does the humidity rise in the evening?


I just took the temp in the basement right now - it's 26 (78.8). It's a split level house, so not truly a basement, basement.


Also, I live in the suburds of Montreal. I checked all the hardware stores here, everything sold out.


Actually, last night, I was in the process of buying a 12k BTU a/c, that said it had express delivery available. About 30 minutes later, that option became null.


So I went with the only one available - 8k BTU, that had delivery available. Everything was sold out, for delivery and pick up in store.



How are you guys managing ?

Down here, everyone has central AC.



Drying your sweat doesn't really help cool you that much, because it's the evaporation of sweat that pulls heat off your skin and cools the body. Fans can help with the evaporation, but the higher the humidity the worse it gets.



Timewave had a good suggestion, a cold pack of frozen peas to the back of the neck helps. So does being as naked as possible.



PH is right, where he lives, after the sun goes down, the moisture in the air increases. The sun actually helps burn the moisture out of the air.



It's 5:30 am here, and its 78 degrees with 88% humidity. I do have the windows open, I open them about 3 am. It's sticky and yucky but I am drinking ice water : ) I will have to close the windows by 9:00 am and turn on the AC.


May I suggest these for you and the kids?

^it's funny you mention those; I had to go to Canadian Tire last night for a new can opener, and kept my eye open for popsicle molds. Didn't see any, so I suppose I could just order them online.. Liv likes the smoothies I make, so I figure I could just put them in popsicle form. Also could start sneaking in some veggies. And yeah, obviously good for the heat.

88% humidity.. uggh. That's awful ??

Well, every house made in the last 50 years or so. My step-daughter is in an old house near downtown that has been converted into 4 apartments. No central air, hence the story about the window unit last weekend.

We dont bother opening our windows in the summer. Just running the AC 24/7

Well, you don't have a bird/squirrel feeder outside a window and a cat that insists he get to watch AND smell them every morning!

This had to be wrong. It's right now 27 C with 87% humidity, and it doesn't feel too bad outside, in comparison to the other day. I don't know what I was looking at.

It's 25 and 72% here right now. Liveable but can't be too active or it gets unpleasant.

Everyone knows that if you sit naked on a metal chair in a room at 82F / 28C you'll shiver.

Home Depot cancelled the shipment after the date that it was supposed to be here. That's what they do. I used to work for them.. so, I should have known better.

Have been waiting all day for rain. According to the detailed radar map, it rained here, yet nothing is wet! It dried before it hit the ground I guess : )




Don't hog it all PH. Let those hurricane bands come on through!

Yesterday was another heat wave, and I read on the weather network, that it was going to carry on for the whole week, up until Saturday, with chance of thunderstorm each day.

So, I went out and bought a dehumidifier yesterday. They had a whole shipment at Canadian Tire.

When going upstairs, at the house, the air felt and also smelled like a swamp. It actually smelled like river water inside the house. We are near a river.

After buying it, the instructions said that after moving it upright and into place, it needs to sit there for 24 hours before turning the unit on. Weird. So, it was no use as of yesterday.

Today is not as muggy, so we moved it to the basement and the air is better there now.

I figured I'd get this over a portable a/c because its movable. The garage and bathroom in the garage needs it. There's a slight mildewy smell.

Hopefully this will help the upstairs area when it gets that soupy swamp feel, though.
