When I went to school, I don’t remember there ever be any air conditioning in the classrooms. I remember sitting in the classroom and having it so warm that the sweat would be rolling down your back. Everyone had the sweat stains and no one thought anything about it. The only ones who squirmed were the girls, if you tried to give them a hug around their neck when you were dripping. It would have been nice to have air conditioning, but we were a small school district. Our school was old, and no one gave it a second thought. We would go home to our homes that didn’t have air conditioning. There would be fans running to help cool it off. The shades would be pulled to help keep the sun out of the house. That way it would be cool since there was no solar heating. Now, people want their shades pulled at night, and the sun coming in during the day. That is a nice concept, but it does not keep out the solar heat. Instead it is easier to rely on the air conditioning. Air conditioning is in nearly every home. That is why I decided to go to school for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning when I graduated from high school. It took me nearly two years to get my certification and I have really been enjoying working for the local HVAC company. In a couple of years, I am hoping to be able to start a heating and air conditioning company of my own.
