I was thinking the other day about how things used to be when it came to heating plus cooling your home.
Back when I was growing up central heating, ventilation & A/Cs were way too costly for the average laboring class joe to be able to afford a single, and only the well to do plus the rich could afford central heating, ventilation & A/C at that time.
The rest of us had to deal with gas heating systems for our heating plus window air conditioning units plus fans for our cooling. It was a completely weird time. And although I have fond childhood memories of our seasoned gas heating system plus portable air conditioning, I am thankful that the cost of central heating, ventilation & A/C went down almost 30 years ago now to where the average joe could afford it. I would not want to go back to those olden days of heating, ventilation & A/C. It was much more difficult to maintain, plus also, you did not get quality heating, ventilation & A/C flowing through your house when the weather was either ultra sizzling or ultra cold. The gas heating systems in those days plus especially the window air conditioning units could not handle that kind of severe weather. I tried to tell my teenagers about all of this. Of course, they didn’t understand that before they were born, heating, ventilation & A/C was not such a given thing in a normal residential house in the United States of america! I am thankful for today’s Heating & Air Conditioning technology.
