To speed things up, I always make sure to turn my air conditioner to a low temperature to accomplish two tasks at once.

I have had an endless list of chores to tackle this past month. It started with throwing a new coat of paint on the outside of my house. When I painted it 10 years ago, I opted to buy cheap paint without considering the longevity. It looks so bad from the road that you can see the old paint showing underneath the layer of white I poorly painted. It took several days of constant back breaking work to finish the entire project. My next task was removing all of my area rugs and cleaning them in the backyard. I put them over my fence, vacuum out all of the dust and dirt, and then I blast them with my power washer. It takes a few hours in the sun to get them to dry fully, so I always make sure to start the chore as early in the morning as I can reasonably manage. Once that was finished, I then had one final chore to complete. All of the sinks, showers and window sills in my house needed to be resealed with silicone caulk. It’s not the hardest task in the world, but it’s time consuming and takes a degree of patience that not all possess. On top of the work involved—all of crouching, awkward bending, and fitting into tight spaces—you must give it eight hours before putting on additional coats. Sometimes you’re lucky and it only takes one, other times you have to add three or four. This makes the whole process extremely time consuming. To speed things up, I always make sure to turn my air conditioner to a low temperature to accomplish two tasks at once. It keeps a strong air circulation in the house while the air conditioner also naturally pulls moisture from the air. When your house is below 50% humidity, it drastically cuts into the time it takes for most caulk to fully dry. It might be the best way to dry out your indoor air without outright using a dehumidifier of some sort plugged into a normal wall outlet. Sometimes your heating and cooling system can be used for untraditional tasks.
