In the south, you need air conditioning

When you live in the deep south, there are a lot of little annoyances that you have to learn to live with. First of all, there is the heat and humidity, which is unrelenting for 9 to 10 months a year. The brief hints of cold weather we get are few and far between. Secondly, there are the bugs. Insects and creepy-crawlies live here in astounding numbers, and almost all of them bite or sting. Last but not least, there are the hurricanes and tropical storms that hit the south several times a year, often with flooding and power outages. With all of these things working against your comfort levels, is it any surprise HVAC systems are considered a requirement for living here? Quite frankly I don’t understand how this area was ever settled and civilized, because back then there was no HVAC technology. Not only was there no air conditioning, but they didn’t have screened in porches or bug spray either – what a nightmare it would have been to live here! I basically keep my HVAC system running 24/7, and very rarely open up any of the windows to let in fresh air. With fresh air comes more bugs, so I keep my house shut up tight to trap all of the cooling inside with me. A couple of times a year I need to open everything up for some natural ventilation, so the house doesn’t smell musty. I always try to do this during a period of cold weather, when I don’t need the AC as much and there aren’t as many bugs out.
