This entire week, the temperatures outside have been completely unbearable. It’s been in the high 90s and in the area where I live, temperatures that high are almost completely unheard of! No one really knows what to do here when it’s this hot, and so everyone has been hiding out inside their air conditioned houses. I feel sorry for all of the people around here who do not have central air conditioning installed in their homes. I know some people who don’t even have a window air conditioning unit to help them beat the heat! That’s because for the most part, it never gets above 78 degrees here all year round. When we do end up having a heat wave like the one we’re having this week, it’s very unusual. I bet that our local heating and air conditioning company is slammed with business this week. And since the forecast is for more of the same kind of scorching temperatures next week, I can only imagine how many of my friends and neighbors are scurrying to have some type of air conditioning unit installed in their homes. The way I see it, even if I only use my central air conditioning for two weeks out of the year, it is totally worth it to me! I like nice even temperatures as much as the next person, but being able to control your indoor air quality with the touch of a button on a thermostat is worth its weight in gold, if you ask me. Especially when the weather is in the 90s!
