I live in one of the hottest climates in the United States and believe it or not I do not like living with heating and cooling.
The reason is that it just cost too much to heat and cool my place in the area so I decided to live without it.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I don’t miss it, however I have found that if you are determined enough to live with success you will be able to. So many people nowadays are reliant on their heating and AC systems and they spent thousands of dollars getting nice and modern heating and cooling systems but also tons of money and repairs and installation fees. I completely avoid these by choosing to live without any kind of heating and cooling system. Because it is so hot here year round, I do have a method of keeping my house cool, it is an older, but in my opinion efficient method. All I do is I simply put fans in my windows, I use the large box kind and if you sit directly in front of the fan during some of the hottest periods of the day you will find that the fan can actually be quite relieving. I do know some people that have said that they believe the fans only blow in more hot air rather than cool air. I would disagree. It has worked for me for a long time and I see no plans on changing it. While some might see it as extreme I even went as far as to have my heating and cooling system removed. I truly want no part of it, the HVAC companies do still try and sell me stuff, but I’m holding out on this. My family may find me to be a bit crazy but this kind of crazy works for me.
