I honestly can’t believe that there are people that would honestly choose to live without an HVAC unit.
I am not just talking about people that choose to live without an air conditioner in their house.
I know that there are a lot of people that don’t like air conditioners, and there are even more people that simply cannot afford to use an air conditioner. However, there are people that don’t even have proper heating systems. For whatever reason, they don’t even have a furnace or a comparable heating system to keep their house warm. I wouldn’t have believed it if I wouldn’t have stayed with my in-laws. I grew up in a house that wasn’t very nice. My parents were far from rich, but we still had the basics in our house. We had all of our daily necessities, and we had an air conditioner and a furnace to keep us comfortable. When my wife told me that she grew up in extreme poverty, I had no idea what she meant until I met them. They had nothing in their house. They had no running water, hot water heater, or basic kitchen appliances. They didn’t even have a furnace to keep their house warm. They had a dangerous combination of different space heaters to keep their house warm, and they were just barely surviving during the winter. In fact, they had been living without a furnace for a few years, and they didn’t even plan to get a furnace. I couldn’t believe that there were still people that didn’t have any furnaces at all. Now I know what my wife meant when she said she grew up in poverty.
