The Whole House Fan

As we wrap up the first part of our special ‘Staying Cool,’ I wanted to offer up a blast from the past….as in, a last of really cool air – on a hot summer night.

When I was a kid, I lived for many years in a house built in the late 40’s, maybe early 50’s. No central air – it hadn’t been invented yet. Plus – no duct work…so even when the day came that central air was available – well, not for this house. Nope.

Too Much Tech?

We’re back – with our special show ‘Staying Cool,’ all about the most economical ways make your home an oasis of cool, dry air, even when it’s hot and humid outside. And we’re going to wrap up today’s show with a few thoughts about a relatively new development in air conditioning…and just about everything else in your house. And that is – if you install one of today’s AC units – a newer model – chances are you won’t ever have to touch it, once it’s installed.

Because – they all have remotes!
