Did you grow up without air conditioning?

I did. But I'm so glad we have it now!

  • Yes---I was born in the 1940's when nobody had A/C/ We have had A/C since the 1970's ...I can't stand being too hot and I NEED air conditioning. I owned an older home a while ago and bought window air conditioners for the living room and master bedroom---better than nothing.Fans don't help when it is over 90 degrees.

  • My parents had one window unit in their bedroom - I remember collapsing in there on the hottest days of the summer, and not wanting to go anywhere else! Haha.

  • We had a window air conditioner in our living room. If it was 90 degrees outside, it was 85 in the living room. Unless you turned it on high. Then you had to go get bundled up in a snowsuit.

  • My parents still do not have a/c and only a fireplace for heat.
    my Grandpartents had a window a/c and I thought that was so amaazing.
    My parents still only have only one cieling fan, in the living room.
    Today, I have a/c and heat though out the entire house.
    Often wonder how I lived without...
