this is one of the few days of the year when having an 1890’s house with 13ft high ceilings really pays off :D 

Its a cool 23.9 degrees in the hallway, just don’t sit near a window 😅

Ever driven in to a French village in the summer, and assumed that no one lives there, because all the shutters are closed?

A 'not bad' 19 degrees up here in Northumberland. With a nice breeze driving the turbines.

Met office claims 29° with almost no breeze and still climbing

I had an old (built 1827) stone house.

It was lovely and cool in summer,but absolutely perishing in winter.

Hell it's hot

Are you sure of that, more info  required, what sort of temperature do you consider hot, what one person thinks is hot another is comfortable, what would you consider warm to be. Is this day time or night?

As a Air Conditioning contractor, we just turn on AC and bang lovely and cool ....hope this helps lol

 

One of the best things we ever bought for our 'van is the roof mounted air con. It comes into its own when the temp goes over 30c like it did here yesterday, and especially when in France and it goes over 40c.

 

(Somebody will be along shortly to point out using air con is bad for the planet......)

33C in my boat. Everyone at my mooring is jealous of the occupants of a boat with air conditioning. The moorings have shore power but I'm not sure if he uses it from his inverter when he's away. He reckons that it hardly uses any power. 

 

I'm sure it's great and I'd probably install a unit on my boat if it didn't look so horribly ugly from the outside.

I think that's a little self deprecating , your boat really doesn't look that bad.

Ours uses 4.2 amps when cooling. 3.7 when used as a heater.

 

You can get units that you can install under benches with ducting to push the cooled air around and thus you dont have the 'ugly' dome on the roof which look better on a caravan or motorhome than they would on a boat.

Completely understand this is purely my opinion and mine alone and has absolutely no scientific basis for said opinion.

 

Curiously there is a chap sitting in the shade of an Oak tree nearby who seems to be wearing some sort of Halloween costume, a very good one as it happens, all horns and cloven feet swearing very loudly about the heat, must be some sort of party I suppose
