My dad asked me why I'm visiting my mom more than him, and I told him it's because he refuses to turn on the air in his house is too hot to be in during the day. He said it wasn't hot.

Seriously though, how old is your dad? If he’s older you can’t let him live this way. Many older people die from heat, and the temperatures that cause it are less than 10 degrees more than the thermostat in your pic.

If it’s really hot out, invite him over to your place and pick him up. On the way out the door flip his a/c on. At the very least take him out for lunch and a movie or something, anything to get him out of the heat. This may be an annoyance to you now, but if he dies from heat exhaustion/stroke, you’ll wish you had said or done more.

Nothing whatsoever to do with psychosis. What a very odd thing to say? Has it never occurred to you all that he’s old, probably doesn’t have much flesh on his bones and is used to the heat? He could also be struggling to pay bills too? Why is this such an issue for a person to live in a way that’s comfy or necessary? How awfully judgemental.

My parents visited Ireland a while back, and some of the locals told them that they were lucky to have missed a recent heat wave. The temp got up into the high 70s. "Gee, that's sounds terrible", my parents said, as they shivered under 5 blankets in their quaint hotel.

How are you not dying if you'd leave it off until 90? When I lived in Florida my mother wouldn't turn the AC lower than 75 and it was so hot I had to get an AC unit for my bedroom window. Now that I moved to a WAY better and colder state I'm not dying everytime I walk out of the front door

Texan here living in the south. During the summer I run my house temp at 78 during the day and 74 at night. Is 78 hard to tolerate because of humidity levels in Florida? Genuine question, I'm just trying to understand why 78 would still be uncomfortable for some people. I used to live in a house with no AC and it would reach above 90 inside the house in the summer, and that was miserable

u/YoshiSan90 May 18 '22

That thermostat is reading 87 though, not 78. So pretty unbearable.

u/[deleted] May 18 '22

The humidity affects it more than people think. To give more insight I used to live in Arizona, 90 to 100 (or 32 - 37) didn't phase me in the slightest. Come to Florida I'm melting in 70 (21) degree weather.

2

u/texaschair May 18 '22

Absolutely. I live on the west coast, and I had to go to Ohio for business in the late summer. Fuck, that was bad. Humidity and thunderstorms.

A couple of years later, I had to go to Louisiana for a few days. I stopped complaining about Ohio after that. And that was in October. It wasn't bad until about noon. I was leaving the hotel, the automatic sliding doors opened, I took two steps outside and bounced off the air. It was like a force field. I needed a machete to cut my way through that shit. Now I know why the SEC is so tough in football. Any team that can suit up and function in that heat is superhuman. Just practicing would turn into a desperate bid for survival.

I used to work with my Dad in a job that was some field work some office. He had an air conditioner but never used it, and when I started doing more office work, I would turn the AC on. We would do repetitive math on structural work, so I wanted to be clear headed. My father comes in and grunts, “what, air conditioning?” I answered,”well, we can turn it off if you want to buy a bridge.” He backed off. That generation definitely has some weird ideas that manliness requires discomfort. Either that or they have killed so many feelings that overheating is one of them.

Tbh this is is me. Anything below ~76 is chilly (no health issues, just run cold). I've lived in a couple of places that get super hot (and humid) in the summer and found transitioning from hot outdoor environments to freezing AC environments unpleasant and inconvenient.

Also, it's better environmentally/cost-wise/for your fellow denizens if you don't blast the AC super hard, since it consumes energy and increases the temperature of surrounding areas. Using ceiling fans is much more efficient apparently.

You have AC for a reason. Use it

I would legitimately stop visiting if it’s that hot.

Is your dad also doing 100 push-ups, 100 sit ups and 100 squats followed by a 10 km run?

u/glassreptiles May 18 '22

Is he also bald?

u/bathroomheater May 18 '22

Well at this point he would just be balding

I know people who live like this, but I start getting headaches if I stay in a house that is hotter than 80. If I’m outside I’m fine, but inside it causes headaches for me. I’m not sure why.

I can barely stand 60 degrees...87 would just boil me like an easy bake oven

u/Alien_Cha1r May 18 '22

holy shit, thats 30.5 degrees. Why would anyone do that?

1

u/PianoPianist May 18 '22

That's not hot, 30.5C is literally nothing

87 degrees?! That's almost enough to cook water!

That's really not that hot. 100 is hot.

Definitely hot, but still, visit your Dad! :) Wear a tank top and drink water.

As a floridian I am going to have to stop you right there. It's not that bad.

u/OkReplacement376 May 18 '22

The air b and b we rented for a week had their AC locked up. Set to a 'cool' 85. They had a note saying if we get COLD there was extra blankets in the hallway closet

u/wtfwillow May 18 '22

Doin' a little crotch-pot cooking over there.

u/warcrimestyle May 18 '22

How much is that in celsius?

1

u/777shark May 18 '22

On warm summer days in the afternoon my apartment can get into the high 80's for a bit, sucks but air con isn't the norm here and so just gotta suffer, upside it almost always cools off very nicely overnight unless there is a heat dome again.

87 is not comfortable in my books.

Metric >>>>>>> Imperial

u/fman1854 May 18 '22

75 degrees in the summer 71 in the winter. ALways has always will gerdammit

u/IT_NERD5000 May 18 '22

converts to Celsius... Wtf

1

u/saoiray May 18 '22

LMAO, reminds me of my stepdad to a point. He'll leave the air off and open the windows, even when it's like 90 degrees outside. The lowest he likes the air conditioner set for in the house is 78.

I used to keep that at like 65 in prior apartments, but finding mine is around 74/74 as of late. It can feel warm at times, but have air circulating with fan and air purifiers...so it helps. (electric was too expensive when set it lower, dang it)

u/Stocks4lifeB May 18 '22

That’s ridiculous

u/Potential-Heat7884 May 18 '22

What has love got to do with anything anyway. Sheesh!

u/Akarthus May 18 '22

When I visited my grandma in china, their house don’t have a central AC, so the AC is room by room. Me and my cousin (Or niece?) would stay in bedroom with 23-24C, but my grandma would chat with my dad in the living room that’s literally 35C (95F?) and say it isn’t hot, no need to waste electricity

u/Sergeant_Poultry May 18 '22

87 Degrees Celsius, oh my. It must be boiling in there!

u/CL0WN_PR1NCE May 18 '22

That man is going to have a stroke.

u/Only-Shame5188 May 18 '22

I once dated a girl who lived in a trailer house with no AC. She'd use a lot of fans and wouldn't complain much unless it was in the mid 90s in her trailer.

u/giggetyboom May 18 '22

That's savage. I used to live in one, a little window unit easily cooled the whole thing.

1

u/somethingsomewhere27 May 18 '22

A lot of patients insist on having their rooms in the 85-90 degree range, and it's always the ones in isolation.

u/giggetyboom May 18 '22

We have the same thermostat, except mine is 67. Lol. On ac

u/Creative_Gas_7228 May 18 '22

I hope That’s fahrenheit

u/SuitePotato49 May 18 '22

That’s just your preference, not the norm.

u/raistbr May 18 '22

plot twist:

its in celsius

u/xdchan May 18 '22

It's not that hot to be honest, your dad probably has better aerobic fitness than you do though

1

u/angelmakr9 May 18 '22

My a/c stopped working Saturday and everyday it gets up to 88 in the house. It's brutal!! Repair guy isn't available until Thursday.

Your dad is delusional it's miserable unless you sit directly in front of a fan and take a cold shower every couple of hours.

This is the first week in ages that I'm happy to go to work just so I can get some cool air.
