The first evening of the heatwave:
Outside: 25.7C (down from 28C earlier)
Upstairs: 27.0C (window open, breeze coming in)
(Bedroom: 24.7, the a/c is on)
Downstairs: 22.5C (windows closed, curtains drawn, as they have been for most of the day).
I think the pre-conditioning was a big success today! I'd expect the downstairs temperature to rise overnight as the bricks release their heat, but it at least gives me a fighting chance to keep things habitable tomorrow.
It's a battle I won't win on Tuesday, as I'll be at work - I do, however, have a booking at the hotel just down the road from work for Tuesday evening (meaning I won't actually earn much that day. Worth it, though, to be able to sleep.)
