I wish I could get a nice HVAC, but I am using DIY cooling techniques

Oh how I completely wish my modern residence had central air.

  • I never would have believed I would say that because I have typically loved the moderate weather, that was until about a few years ago.

I never knew that as I became older I would become so intolerant to the heat. Now it seems that anything over seventy is way too much for me to handle. I have considered moving however have no way to do that either. If you were to visit me at my place on a truly sizzling morning you would easily laugh at the lengths I go to when making an attempt to cool off. Apart from sitting in a cool shower I have fans working pretty much everywhere as well as even have a cooler full of ice with a fan blowing across it. Searching sites such as Pinterest to find certain DIY hacks on cooling my place off is something I am always doing. I also regularly speak to my property owner to ask if I can have a variance so that I can put in a small window A/C machine. He typically is telling me the same thing, “if I let you do it then I have to let every other renter do it as well”. I can’t really see the issue with renters having their own A/C machine so long as they are paying their own utility bills however the guy basically said it is too much of a drain on the electrical system. He says that if everyone were to turn on their A/C machines at the same time it would blow all of the fuses as well as become a major problem for the electrical grid. I really have no other choice but to continue my makeshift cooling for now.
