I find it so interesting that air conditioners are not as popular as other HVAC units.
In fact, when I spent time in a different country, I found that most locals didn’t even own an air conditioner.
Obviously, the local buildings have air conditioners. If you wanted to feel the comfort of an air conditioner, then your only choice is to go to a government building. Those are probably the only buildings that are going to have a running air conditioner. I was very lucky to have rented an apartment with a working air conditioner. In our building, we have ductless mini-split air conditioners that allow us to control the air conditioners in each room. Although other people have air conditioners in their apartment, they rarely use them. Those that do use the air conditioners only turn them on if their apartment is over 90 degrees. As I grew to realize that they all hate air conditioners, I wanted to discover why. I began asking the locals what they had against air conditioners. They were telling me that it is unhealthy for your body to use an air conditioner during the summer. The only safe time to use an air conditioner is in winter. However, since you don’t need an air conditioner during winter, there is no need. They are also taught by their culture medicine that air conditioners cause cancer all the time. In fact, they seemed to teach that air conditioners are more dangerous during the logical times to use an air conditioner, like after exercise, during the summer, etc.
