Okay Mother Nature ..... CEASE AND DESIST!! Although it's a comfortable 65 outside this morning on the patio, it was a MOTHER yesterday. That 105 degree day sent my air conditioner into a tizzy. Even though I have my thermostat set at 85 degrees in the house, it turned on at 11:00 when it hit 100 and ran all day.
I tried turning it off once while my fan blasted me with convection oven breezes, but I just couldn't stand it. Cooper was panting with his tongue hanging out, so I turned it back down to 81 degrees. This morning's check revealed that my usage tripled yesterday. I should have been looking into solar six months ago!!
Here's the latest I've learned. Those little micro inverters work really well when they work, but they seem to have a high replacement rate. Besides that, they are much more expensive according to the bids I've been getting. The other news is that solar is exempt from property tax, or so they tell me.
