Merida’s heat has been building, and lately our upstairs bedroom/solarium has been getting hotter every night. March in Merida generally kick’s-off the annual HOT season here, with temperatures rising through April, to hit 104º – 115º F peaks in May. Mid-June often brings a little relief with the start of Rainy Season – as the daily afternoon rains come in as ~ cool fronts ~ which is a great contrast to Washington DC and the Eastern Seaboard, where afternoon summer showers mean steamy muggy nights of heat intensified by humidity.
Anyway, while lying in bed, sweating … trying to decide whether to turn on the clima, (AC), I started running the number in my head for ~ how much “AA” (“Aire Acondicionado“) costs to cool down our bedroom for a night. ~
Short Answer: As little as $4 pesos a night . . . or over $100 pesos a night, ~ depending on your bedroom, ~ your air conditioner, and ~your lifestyle
For better or worse, figuring out your PPN ($pesos por noche) means we have to know:
~ How many hours will you run the AA por dia?
~ How cool do you want your room? a.k.a. What temp to set the A/C?

… And now you know what chemists think about as they drift off to sleep…
