^^yes and yes, but my wife works from home now so it's always keeping the house within the set range. and I run the fan more often now too. Before all taht, I think the nest saved a little bit based on reverting to energy-saving temp range when no one was home.

^what does running the fan accomplish for you? I have the nest set to run the fan after the AC has stopped to keep circulating the cool air, but i never just run the fan independently.

I have it on auto-learning which has created a schedule. It auto-senses when we are gone and reverts to the leaf mode. I have tried dropping that temperature down so it's not having to cool down such a substantial amount in the evenings to see if that has any effect.

The weeds on my lawn just grow like crazy in one single month. It's like everywhere now. I was scared as fuck. Fortunately my worker came in the day before yesterday and took care of it. He promised me they would be gone in two weeks.

running the fan with the AC off is probably just adding humidity back into your house, get some ceiling fans or room fans

^^ Unless you have leaky ducts, it's just moving the air in your house around and the humidity shouldn't be affected.

the ducts are probably leaky, but it's also blowing any water off the coil back into the air

The ducts and AC are also my headache.

^^ I suppose a little. Most of that water should have drained off.

Has anyone been gifted a house? We're probably going to be gifted a house that we want to live in from a family member. Just wonder if there's any pitfalls. The family member won't exceed the gift tax lifetime limit. I think we need to get an appraisal.

Talk to a tax lawyer. This sounds like one of those situations where it's better to "buy" the house. A few hundred bucks for a consult is usually worth it to know whether or not you're going to have a bad encounter with the IRS.

Yeah, the step up tax basis is nice when it's not gifted.
