By Noon on Friday...

BY NOON FRIDAY, JUNE 26, MY HOUSE WAS ONLY 76 DEGREES!

The bug man arrived at 8AM, to spray our house. 

Debbie had left at 6:30, and left me explicit instructions: “Open all the windows after he leaves, so we don’t breathe those chemicals... “.

When he left at 9:15. I did as I was instructed. 

I love the windows being open! Breezes and hearing the birds, really soothes my soul. So, guess what I did next?

I turned off the AC. And continued my office work.

Just before noon, she arrives home and gives the OK to “close-up the house!”

I looked at the thermometer and our interior temperature was only 76 degrees!

Our thermostat is set at 74 degrees, so I’m especially proud of our R-50 Applegate Bora-spray cellulose attic insulation.

BTW, R-50 is 15”. We have zero shade on our roof, and our shingle color is grey. My home is a 1750 ft2 ranch on crawlspace, built in 1976, with wood siding.

Some of you may not be impressed with my experience. However, I have involved conversations to anywhere from 2 to 6+ homeowners every day of the week, as I do my virtual appointments.

And I can just tell you, there are lots & lots of folks in metro Atlanta who would LOVE temperatures like mine, at noon, in their homes WITH the help of their AC!

What’s so special about my house?

  • R-50 cellulose attic insulation.

  • HVAC is located in my crawlspace. (My AC is 21 years old, but keeps giving me 56 degree airflow from my vents. It’s starting to wane, I can remember 50 degree airflow).

  • I added return vents, about 21 years ago.

  • My crawlspace is encapsulated, and insulated with closed-cell foam insulation on my foundation walls.

  • My windows were replaced with Pella insulated units, about 10 years ago.

BTW, outside temps were 81 degrees, and partly sunny.
