I seriously cannot believe my wonderful husband and I are fighting about this. But, fight we do. Our air conditioner died. We are both unemployed which is strain enough so the air is staying dead until fall. So financial strain is part of the issue, but it is clearly not all of it. Here's the fight: Dh put a fan in the basement window blowing in and a fan in the second floor back window blowing out. Theoretically this will draw air in through the naturally cool area of the basement and push it through the house. So the first floor is tolerable. But, the second floor, where the hot air goes naturally, is an oven. This is fine by day, but at night..... Well I want to turn the fan in to our bedroom to draw cool air in from outside. My thinking is that we open other windows and do what we need to do to make the area we are currently in as comfortable as possible. His is that turning the fan in pressurizes the house and prevents the cool air from circulating out of the basement. I agree, but we don't sleep in the basement! He can if he wants, but I'm not gonna. I remember my parents having almost the same exact argument about air flow. It isn't that I disagree with how air moves! It is that you should use the movement of air to make the room you are in the most comfortable.... OK I know I said that already, but can you hear how frustrated I am? We actually fought about this last night. And, we're not really done, because we didn't resolve it. Am I really wrong? Or is this a guy thing?
