Would die without AC

Last May, I got offered an awesome job opportunity down south. The job offer was a significant promotion with far better pay and the possibility for advancement. Although I had wasted my entire life living up north, I was eager to go to a new area. I’ve never really liked the cold wintertime temperatures and snow, and I never liked being trapped indoors, dependent on using a heating system. I was anxious to have sunshine, palm trees, and air conditioning. When I packed my belongings into the automobile and started out, the temperatures was around forty degrees. The further south I drove, the warmer the next temperatures, and I eventually rolled down the windows. The fresh air felt fantastic, but it quickly become uncomfortably hot. That’s when I found that the air conditioner in my car did not work. I drove for another ten hours inside the overheated car, with sweat running down my face. I then reached my new apartment and had to unload my belongings and carry them up three flights of stairs. The heat and humidity was absolutely brutal, and I couldn’t wait to get inside and crank up the air conditioning. Once I unlocked my new apartment, I realized that I had not remembered to have the utilities turned on. I had no electric, which meant virtually no running water, no lights, no air conditioning. I simply dumped my belongings inside and headed to the nearest coffee shop. While I called the utility company and set up services, I sat in the air conditioned space and drank ice water. Although I had only arrived, I already understood that air conditioning would now be necessary to my survival.

Thinking of buying a space heater

My husband Adam and I decided to pack up and move down south. We both hated our jobs and we can’t stand the weather we  experienced up north. Adam and I  were sick of always dealing with furnace service, plowing snow and being trapped indoors. So we started to  house hunt in the southern part of the country. I figured that the Summers in the south would get so hot that A/C would be more of a requirement than a luxury. Since Adam and I are not familiar with needing cooling equipment, both of us made the decision to venture south in the Winter season to house hunt. I was shocked when I first got off the plane in December down south. Adam and I wore shorts and sleeveless shirts the entire trip. We wondered if people down south managed without heating systems.  We thought maybe they are overly susceptible to cold since they are accustomed to warm temperatures for most of the year.  We saw people wearing long  pants, coats and hats while we were content in shorts. The local restaurants, coffee shops and stores had their gas furnaces running. Adam and I, as we were house hunting, would ask the estate agent to turn down the heating system. We did not like the heat, since the natural outdoor air temperature was quite high! This had us rethinking our HVAC priorities for the new house. Would we even need to invest in a heating system since it is so warm even in the winter? Maybe a few space heaters would keep us warm.  We figured we’d be focused more on a/c than heating in our new house down south. That’s quite a change for us. Up north, we  don’t own an air conditioner and we rely on our furnace for about 9 months out of the year.

Heating in my new climate?

My husband Max and I decided to move down south. Max and I both were unhappy with  our job as well as the weather we get up north. The two of us were done dealing with gas furnace repairs, shoveling snow and plowing the driveway. So we started house hunting in the southern region. I expected that the Summers in the south would get hot to the point where A/C would be more of a requirement than a luxury. Since Max and I are not used to needing cooling, we made the choice to head south in the Winter season to house hunt. We were both in shock when we got off the plane in March down south. Max and I wore shorts the whole trip. I wonder if people down south even bother with heating systems in their homes.  Maybe  they just sensitive to feeling chilly since they live in such hot weather most of the time. Max and I saw people walking around in long pants, sweaters and even hats while we wore only shorts. The local restaurants and stores all had their furnaces on. Max and I would ask the real estate agent to shut off the heating system. The two of us did not want  heat, since the natural outdoor air temperature was plenty warm. This had Max and I considering options for HVAC. We debated if we would even need to get a heating unit since it is warm  all year round.  A space heater might suffice. The two of us would need to focus more on a/c than heating in our new home. What a new lifestyle for us. Right now, we use our gas furnace for about eight months out of the year.

Heating for southern weather?

My husband Tom and I decided to move down south. Tom and I both hated our jobs plus the weather we are battling up north. The two of us were frustrated with  constantly dealing with furnace repairs, shoveling snow plus ice on the roads. So we have started shopping for a new home in the south. I realize that the Summer weather in the south gets hot to the point where AC is more of a requirement than a luxury. Since Tom and  I are not accustomed to needing cooling, we made the decision to travel south in the Wintertime to shop for property. I was surprised when I got off the plane in December down south. Tom and I wore shorts and sandals the whole trip. Do people down south not even bother with furnaces? Or are they just super susceptible to shivering since they live in a typically hot spot? The two of us watched people walking around in pants, jackets and even hats while we were overheated in shorts. The clubs, diners and stores had their furnaces operating. Tom and I kept asking the estate agent to turn off the furnace. We did not require any type of heating because the natural outdoor air temperature was so nice and warm! This had us  talking about Heating and Air Conditioning. Would we need to invest in a heating system since it is warm even in December? Maybe a space heater would suit us. The two of us need to research more about air conditioner options, instead of heating in our new home down south. What an odd transition for us. Right now, we  don’t even own an air conditioner and we only worry about the cost of the furnace.

Moving towards a heating system

My husband Allen and I decided to move down south. Allen and I both hated our jobs and the weather we suffer up north. We were tired of consistently dealing with furnace repairs, shoveling snow and slipping on black ice. So we began house hunting in the south. I knew that the Summers in the south get overheated the point where A/C is more of an essential appliance than a luxury. Since Allen and  I are not used to needing a cooling system, we made the decision to go south in the Wintertime to search for a house. I was in shock when I stepped off the plane in January down south. Allen and I wore shorts and sleeveless shirts the whole trip. Do people down south not need any type of furnaces. Or are they just totally susceptible to cold since they live in a warm region? We noticed people walking around in long pants, jackets as well as hats during the trip. The bars, restaurants and majority of stores had their heating systems running. Allen and I, while house hunting, asked the real estate agent to turn off the furnace. We did not require any form of heat.  The natural outdoor air temperature was sufficient! This caused Allen and I to talk about HVAC. Would we even need to install a heating unit since it was warm even in January? Maybe a space heater  would be enough. We would actually need to think further about HVAC needs in our home down south. What an odd change for our way of life. Up north, we don’t even own an air conditioner.  We run the  furnace for about 9 months out of the year.

Thinking of moving down south-not going to need a heating system?

My girlfriend Alex and I decided to move down south. Alex and I both hated our jobs and the weather we experienced up north. We were sick of always dealing with heater repairs, shoveling snow and black ice. So the two of us started house hunting in the south. I knew that the Summers in the south get hot to the point where AC is more of a requirement than a luxury. Since Alex and I are not used to needing cooling, we decided to go south in the Winter to house hunt. I was in shock when I got off the plane in December down south. Alex and I wore shorts the whole trip. Do people down south not require heating systems? Or are they just super susceptible to cold since they live in a hot spot? We saw people walking around in pants, sweaters and hats while we were in shorts. The bars, restaurants and stores had their heaters on. Alex and I while house hunting would ask the estate agent to turn off the heating system. We did not require heat, the natural outdoor air temperature was great! This had my girl and I talking though about HVAC. Would we not even need to get a heating system since it is warm even in the Summer? Maybe a space heater would suffice. We would really need to think more about air conditioning than heating in our new home down south. What an odd change for us. Right now my girl and I don’t even own an air conditioner and we use our heater for about 9 months out of the year.

In the heat they need air conditioning

The open range is no place for the faint of heart, and America’s cowboys know that all too well. In the days of yore, the cowboy made his living by the sweat of his brow and also the ingenuity of his mind and brought steer and cows had nowhere to sleep except the wide open plains between point A and point B. If you think cowboys are really a thing of the past, you are sorely mistaken. There is still money to be made as a rancher, but life is tough. The days are still long and hard and spent in the saddle as ranchers take their own herds across many miles to market. The most important thing to many cowboys is getting home with a pocketful of money after the sales. And the most important things when they get home is seeing their family and kicking back on the couch and enjoying the air conditioning. Modern HVAC is the one modern convenience that just about all cowboys say they miss. Television is okay, but air conditioning is actually paramount. I think if one was required to come home to a house with a broken down HVAC system, he may just turn around and head back out the door. Back in the wild west, or at least in this imaginations of the wild west, cowboys kicked up the mud floors at saloons. Today, they head to a clean hotel with strong, free air conditioning. If they plan to go to a tavern, all it needs to have is good music and modern HVAC so that the indoor air quality is high and also the air is nice and cool. Cowboys, like everyone who works outside a good portion of the day, longs for the comforting hum of the heating and cooling system and a superior hot shower. Sleeping under the tranquil breeze from the air vents is a sensation like no other.

Cooling system where I work

I have now working at a new grocery store for a little over a year now. In my opinion, it’s not the best workplace, but it pays the bills when needed. Aside from the semi-good paychecks, there are some things I do prefer about the job. I care to see  regulars come in just to talk with me & ask us about our day! However, working in the deli section with our cooling equipment blasting chilly air down our shirt everyday just makes our jobs so much more strenuous. Just imagine assisting purchasers & at the same time, feeling like an ice cube from the air conditioner. I suppose exactly why our boss does keeps the cooling thermostats so cold, & germs would be the reason. But I ask him, do we truly need to have the cool air constantly blasting in a section of the store that is already cold?  It’s totally unfair & I’ve had it with the cold days at this point. When not selling, I always imagining myself somewhere lying on a beach with warm heat and away from all air conditioning units. Oh but no, I’m stuck at work freezing to death all because my boss will not change the temperature settings on the grocery store cooling system. I suppose purchasers don’t like the cool air either as I always see them in our section putting on sweaters or coats to warm up. So not only am I bored with barely any buyers, but I also get the luxury to freeze from cool air seeping out of the HVAC air vents all day.

Wanting to leave AC filled job

I have now working at a nearby grocery store for a little over a year now. In my own opinion, it’s not the best task, however it pays good when needed. Aside from the semi-good pay, there are some things enjoyable about it. I love seeing returning customers  come in just to chat with me and ask me about my afternoon. Working in the deli section with our cooling equipment blasting cold air down my back everyday just makes this job so much harder for me. Just think about assisting clients as well as at the same time, shivering from the air conditioning system. I know exactly why we need the A/c systems running. But I ask honestly, do we absolutely need to have the air conditioning systems blasting in a section of the store that is already typically cold? It’s entirely unfair and I’ve had it at this point. When I am not selling, I always think of myself someplace lying on a hammock with warm temperatures away from the A/C. Oh but no, I’m stuck at the grocer freezing to death all because nobody can change the temperature settings on our cooling units. I believe clients hate the cool blast of air conditioning  too as I always see them in our section trying to make their purchases fast. So not only am I bored with barely any customers, but I also get the luxury to freeze throughout the workday from the cool air coming out of the Heating, Ventilation and A/C air vents.

Groccerries and the AC

I have working at a local grocery store for a little over six months now. In my opinion, it’s not the best position, but it pays the bills when needed. Aside from the semi-good pay, there are some things I don’t mind about it. I like having regulars come in just to chat with me and ask me about my morning. However, working in the deli area with the air conditioning blasting chilly air down my neck everyday just makes my job so much more difficult for me. Just think about assisting buyers and at the same time, feeling like an icicle from the A/C.  I mean, don’t get me wrong. I understand exactly why our boss maintains the cool air, and germs would be the reason. But I ask honestly, do all of us need to have the A/C  blasting in an area of the store that is already cold? It’s totally unfair and I’ve had it with the cool air at this point. When not selling, I am always imagining myself somewhere lying on a beach apart from all the cold A/C and deli section. Oh but no, I’m stuck at work, cold, all because nobody will change the temperature settings on our cooling system. I guess buyers don’t care for the cool blast of air either as I always notice them in my area making their purchases with haste. So not only am I bored with barely any buyers, but I also get the luxury to freeze from cool air dumping  out of the Heating and Air Conditioning vents.
