Why are we so so hot when our AC goes out?
Air Conditioning has completely changed the way we design and construct buildings and homes.
Many of the old ways of naturally keeping a home cooler were: loosely built enclosures or cool brick structures, high ceilings, breezeways, strategically placed shrubbery, and sleeping porches.
Today’s housing doesn’t have the same ventilating and heat-defeating features that would have kept us cool without AC, so going without AC today feels more unbearable than it used to.
