I bought some suddiffed today…out of despersation…all these things costt too much but..I cant stand to not do something.. even running my air conditioner for short times ( few hours at a time) anybody know the shortest ammount that does the most good. the fan just make s my nose run. and i know air conditioner and fan costs the same. ac bring the hummidity down that helps too. I think the state should help me with some of this.. but I doubt they agrree.. this is my helth were talking about here.

actually Vi
AC and fan does not cost the same in energy costs. for the AC to run it requires the compresson to be working which brings the energy costs up a great deal.

I talked to the elect co they said they cost the same.. Im not running AC alot ..mostly a2 hrs on get the humidity down..

big problem is how much heat this computer givs off! oh and my oxygen compressor.

was the person to whom you spoke from the Electric co just a person who had no techical training or did he have some actual electric training beyond customer training?

I checked it out and this is what I found: " Fan mode the fan runs continuously and the compressor is off. This obviously has good energy saving impact because the compressor is switched off. Compressor is the most electricity-consuming component of an air conditioner. But the downside is that no cooling happens when compressor is off. It is better to use a ceiling fan in this case." for more see ~

To be sure oxygen concentrators and computers do put out a lot of heat!

If you can find locally harvested honey that is a good natural answer to allergies however it not a quick fix it takes time to get into your system

Can you use breathe right strips? Those have helped me in the past when I get really stuffed up.
