I grew up in a real warm, humid weather conditions where ac was an absolute requirement for the enjoyment of our living, then certainly, most people had whole home fans, but those don’t do much in the Summer besides move sizzling air around the house, then a typical lady was just not able to keep chilly plus comfortable separate from the a/c working almost constantly! I remember the ac equipment in my family’s lake beach house never did a unquestionably ok task of cooling down the home; it constantly seemed to require repairs plus seemed to just barely keep the beach house chilly, my friends plus siblings plus I would give everyone a chance to complaining about the unbearable heat plus ac down by eating ice cream sandwich while our parents discussed the cost of having an HVAC dealer come to the beach house plus service the a/c! One hot season the people I was with and I had the HVAC worker come to our beach house 5 times to repair the unit. Each time the professional came to the beach house to service our a/c, the people I was with and I would get a few mornings of the sweet relief of cool air before the equipment broke down again… That was an aggravated plus sizzling Summer where nobody was comfortable. Every one of us would all take our time at the market just to appreciate their icy cold ac plus to escape the gas heater of our own house.
