Too darn hot

Cole Porter, by way of Ella Fitzgerald, had it right: It’s too darn hot.

This morning the Danville paper has the news you need, a story with advice from an air conditioning expert on how not to blow your system during this infernal heat wave.

Don’t move the setting on the AC back and forth. Put it at one temp and leave it. Most AC systems will cool your house or office 20 degrees below the temperature outside. If it reaches triple digits again, in other words, the best you’re going to do is about 80 degrees. Take it and run.
