If you live in the south and you don’t have central a/c, then you are absolutely going to be miserable.
That’s a single thing that I have l acquired ever since I started living down here a few years ago.
I first moved down here to this area of the country because of my job, and at first I didn’t guess if I was going to be able to stand it or not! The hot and cold temperatures down here start heating up at the end of May and they don’t let up and start cooling down until the end of October. It is rough, especially for someone prefer myself and others who grew up in a much cooler area of the country where the climate control isn’t that big of an issue, for me, figuring out how to deal with the high hot and cold temperatures was a big deal at first. I thought that I would be okay to just have a little window device cooling system in my family room at night when I first moved here. After all, a window device A/C was all that I had in my beach house when I lived up north and that wasn’t a problem for myself and others at all. It provided enough cooling for myself and others in the summers so that I could sleep comfortably and it didn’t cost actually much to operate, but however, when I moved to the south, a little window device A/C wasn’t nearly powerful enough to keep myself and others comfortable! I ended up having to have central a/c installed so that the whole beach house could be cool, without it, you end up with lots of moisture and mold inside your beach house and that’s just terrible! Central a/c is absolutely a must if you’re going to live down here.
