Without central air conditioning, there is absolutely no way that I could ever live down here in the south.
Unless you live down here, you would probably never believe how hot it feels down here in the summertime.
I remember last summer we had a record breaking heat wave and the temperatures were in the triple digits for over a week at a time! During that whole month, if you didn’t have central air conditioning in your house, then you really wished that you did. I remember hearing that all of the HVAC companies in town were completely booked up with appointments for air conditioning maintenance, repair, and installation jobs during those weeks. I guess the HVAC companies were making a lot of money at that point, but I certainly wouldn’t have wanted to be a heating and cooling technician during that time period. You know those poor guys were having to go out in that heat every day to work outdoors in the high temperatures in order to fix the A/C systems of other people. I mean, I guess if they were really dedicated to their jobs, it probably didn’t bother them that much. I probably wouldn’t mind working as an HVAC technician if it were in a different climate, but there’s no way that I would ever be able to work in the outdoors around here in the south without having central air conditioning. I couldn’t even live here, much less work here in the heat. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone lives down here without having A/C.
