@goldensrbest   Everyone in this area has AC.  You could live hereT without.  However, they only cool so much.  When it's 100°,  your interior tempis going to be about 80°.


@Kachina624  @goldensrbest   The excessive heat in the SW is hard to describe....pavement gets up to 180° and so do your roof and exterior walls,   It RADIATES inward to your living space.   It's like putting your hand near a pot of boiling water.    di

@Kachina624. When it is so hot there do you have what we on the north shore call brown outs?  It's when the electric  grid gets overloaded and nothing works at full power.   If so does that happen often?  Something else I need to think about 

😀


@Travone   No, thankfully that has never been a problem here.


@Kachina624 @Travone    Not in Phoenix, either.    It's more likely that your air-conditioner will break down.   We are prepared for that...emergency services are on "High Alert".     THIS is our worst season of the year, not winter like Northern areas of the country.
