Life Without Air Conditioning

by Zack Gilbert

If you have moved into a place that doesn't have an air conditioning system, then you may want to learn what you can expect those hot days to be like. Once you have a realistic picture of how your days will go when its hot, then you may see why it will be so important for you to consider having an air conditioner installed in your new home. Also, keep in mind that when you have an HVAC system put in, it will increase the value of your home immediately. This will be helpful once you make the decision it's time to sell. With regards to what life is going to be like on hot days without AC, here are some examples of what you can expect.

Your household will be cranky

When people are cooped up in a hot box, it will affect their moods. This means that you can expect for everyone in your home to be in a more argumentative mood than they would normally be in. Also, if you have a baby or small children, then you can expect them to also be fussy and cranky, and you may have an even harder time getting them to take naps and go to sleep for the night.

Your household will be sweaty

You can also expect the people in your home to be sweaty. This means that you are going to want to spend a lot more time wiping down your furniture that has smooth surfaces because their sweat will get on it and will eventually cause stickiness and foul odors. When it comes to your cloth furniture, you can also expect to have to clean it more often because sweaty bodies will cause visible dirty marks.

Your animals will be miserable

You will also find that your indoor animals, like your cats and dogs, can also have a hard time when they are in a hot house. This will be especially true if your other house they were kept in was kept nice and cool with an air conditioner. If your pets are having a hard time with the heat, you want to offer them a cooler area on a hard floor and make sure to have a fan blowing in the area and to give them fresh water often.


Now that you have seen a glimpse of what life is going to be like on hot days when you have no air conditioner, you may want to make a call and see what would be involved with having a system put in.
