About 20 years ago, our family and I moved to the West Coast to start a modern life.
- Every one of us settled in the desert area, where heat is an everyday problem.
Twenty years ago, the bi-weekly high un-even temperatures weren’t nearly as high as they are these mornings. It is entirely clear that global warming is playing a crucial area in making this earth warmer. When the people I was with and I moved to the coast, the average bi-weekly Summer temp was 100 degrees, and now it is close to 110 degrees. No matter what you do while in the Summer weeks, it is virtually impossible to keep the house cool. Every one of us have a central AC unit that works overtime and the people I was with and I also have two ductless AC units in the master family room and the living room. Both of us are thankful for solar energy, because our energy bills would be through the roof if the people I was with and I did not have solar panels. Even with 2 ductless AC units and the central AC running, there are still mornings when the un-even temperatures are too hot, and just last week, it was 114 degrees and none of the AC units would run. The central system was frozen and the people I was with and I did not want to ruin the ductless AC units by trying to overwork them. Instead, the people I was with and I shut off all of the machines and left the house for the morning. Believe it or not, it was certainly cooler outside than it was in the house separate from the When our spouse and I moved to this neighborhood 20 years ago, the people I was with and I never thought the heat would cause us to question the decision.
