My parents never wanted to run the A/C

When I was a kid, my parents would never run the A/C system in the summer. I don’t really know what they had against central air conditioning, but no matter how much my brothers and I begged them to, they just would not turn it on. My dad used to say that it was a complete waste of money to run the central air conditioning system in the summer, and my mom always just agreed with him.Since my mom was pretty cold natured, I think that it didn’t really bother her at all to not use the air conditioning but my siblings and I thought that it was terrible. Half the summer, we would try to sleep over at friends’ houses just so that we would not have to be in our own house in the heat. Now that I am older, I can kind of understand a little bit better why my parents did not want to run the cooling system in the summer. Central air conditioning is very expensive, especially around here where the temperature outside is really hot during July and August. I know that my cooling bills really get up there, and if my parents were having money issues back then, I can see how it would have been hard to make ends meet if they were running the air conditioner all summer long. It’s funny how you can see things differently once you become an adult. I’m glad I don’t have this problem, though. My kids don’t know how lucky they are to be able to use the air conditioner all summer long.
