I remember one Summer where I live, when a heat wave creeped up on all of us unexpectedly. Normally, our summers are quite mild, pleasantly so. This is the kind of neighborhood where going to the beach is ideal during the summer, and for that really reason it is not necessarily really ideal because of the crowds! The two of us get a lot of tourists, after all, but that is to be expected. It is a delightful location to live weather-wise! That is why last Summer’s heat wave was quite surprising. For almost an entire week, hot and cold temperatures were above 90 degrees quite often, and the humidity was oppressive. This presented quite a concern to myself and others and my family. The concern was the people I was with and I barely had any climate control. The two of us only had a few dilapidated window air conditioning units that the people I was with and I barely ever used around the house. The two of us often number one instead to open windows and use a couple fans, but that was not going to cover it during the heatwave! After cranking up the old, dusty window air conditioning units, the people I was with and I found them to be quite unacceptable to cool us down, due to their age. Me and my husband thought that the people I was with and I could count on climate control not being a really luxurious thing for us in this climate, but after that heat wave, the people I was with and I decided to invest in better air conditioning on the option that such weather would return next summer. The two of us eventually decided upon ductless mini split air conditioning units. There would be less hassle in their upgrade, but they would job no less effectively!
