Summer is practically here! Although the warm days we have had actually makes it feel like summer is already here. As a result, air conditioners will soon be humming in neighborhoods all across the country. However, a recent survey by a British news organization found that Americans are usually very reluctant to turn on the a/c.
Here are some of the highlights of the recent survey:
•People will suffer through five sweaty, sleepless nights before giving in and turning on the air conditioning.
•67% actually think they can beat the heat. They usually can’t.
•55% of Americans feel “defeated” when they finally turn on the air conditioning.
•One in seven Americans admit to waiting until August to turn on the air conditioning.
Me, I value my sleep too much to fight the urge to turn on the a/c. If it gets too uncomfortable I’m my room due to the heat, I hit the a/c’s power button! Any one else feel the same way? Let me know!
