Mr. Copper re: FL heat and humidity

Even though one can adapt somewhat with time , it is definitely not for everyone , and to live without A/C after a hurricane knocks out electrical power for several days , can be life threatening . After a recent hurricane an assisted living center had a number of fatalities . Legislation now mandates that these facilities have on-site backup power systems .
My income is very limited , so I keep my power bill low by leaving for part of the summer and going to my wife’s home in the Colombian Andes , where year round temperature are such that our home there has neither heating nor A/C . My savings in summer electrical bills pays about half my airfare . I do the same in winter to save on heat pump cost .

Fall and Spring are glorious in my part of FL ( near Daytona ). I keep the doors closed in the morning to trap the night-time cool , then open front and back doors in mid to late afternoon to enjoy the breezes . I have reached an age where I am most comfortable in a room that is between 80 and 83 degrees , but that is not for everyone .

I used to live in ( and was born in ) a part of Ontario , Canada where I have seen -45 F on the window thermometer . That would kill me now !
