    Really? It doesn't get hot and humid over there?

    No air conditioner :shock: Is that because you don't need one or you don't have one just because?

    It's rare, maybe a few weeks in high summer, but not enough to warrant any form of cooling.
    We be cold and wet a lot :-)

    I don't have an air conditioner. They're pretty rare in NZ.

    Open the windows and turn on the fan if it's hot.
    Turn on the heater or light a fire if it's cold.

    I don't think I say anything as I live alone, but I guess I'm thinking turn it up to make it colder and down to make it warmer. Do you have your A/C on already?

    When making the temperature cooler in your house do you say you're "turning the air conditioner up or down"? You are increasing the air conditioner's output, so it's going up, but the temperature of the house is going down. So, which is it? I always say, "turn the air down" when wanting to make it cooler.

    I think of it as increasing the energy level of the unit, so if I want it cooler, I say "turn up the air conditioner" (e.g., gimme more cold air") (We're in Los Angeles, so we keep the thermostat at 82 during the summer. Otherwise, we'd go bankrupt trying to keep the house cool. )

    Our daughter moved to an old apartment in San Diego, about 4 blocks from the ocean. They gave her their "renter's handbook" ... In the section for temperature control:

    AIR CONDITIONING: Open the window.
    HEATING: Close the window.

    I'm pretty sure it's because she can just open the door anytime of the year to let the snow in. :lol:

    But for me I just say I'm hot. My mom is the only one who messes with the air conditioning/heater, she has poor circulation so she gets cold really easy.

    I agree with Forumnerd... I live in Arizona, so I'm usually turning it up.

    Typically I turn up the thermostat to raise the temperature and turn down the thermostat to lower it, but I always turn up the radio. I need the music, got to gimme some more.

    I open the window "up" to make it cooler in my house, does that count?

    Turning the air down, and turning the thermostat up, both make it warmer.

    Turning the air up, and turning the thermostat down, both make it colder.

    To confuse those, is to misspeak.

    No, I turn the A/C on as late as possible. We get a spring in my part of the country so we open the windows at night, to cool the house down, and then close them for the day. We shouldn't have to use the A/C for two more months. We mainly use it to get rid of the humidity in the house.

    This. :mrgreen:

    My house is stucco and generally stays cool until the mid to late afternoon. That's when I turn the air UP.
