It’s July in the Sierra foothills. It is hot. It is darned hot. Knowing it was going to be darned hot during my visit, I brought up a secret weapon to help keep me alive during the burning times.
Behold, my new best friend.
I can endure up to about 100 degrees with windows open and ceiling fans, but today is just too darned hot so we’re taking the Honeywell out for a test drive.
The unit came with all the fixings to vent it out a window and plugs into a standard household wall outlet.
Normally I try to stomp with as light a carbon footprint as I can up here. But when it gets this hot, my moral compass starts to point in a more energy intensive direction.
Like right now.
The unit reports the indoor temperature now at a more comfortable 75 degrees, down from the previous 90 degrees.
Time for a nap!
