Air conditioning in the modern era: How many of us can afford to live with it?
The concept of air conditioning may be antiquated, but it’s still an essential tool for modern living.
Air conditioning in modern-day homes If you have a modern-era home and want to be prepared for winter, then you need to get your air conditioning to work properly, according to research published by the National Association of Home Builders.
In the first quarter of 2019, the association surveyed the nation’s home builders and found that almost one in five (17%) of all new homes sold in the first three months of 2019 were powered by air conditioning.
The average American’s home has a thermostat that monitors the temperature of the air inside, and if you’re using a thermo-electric device (or an indoor fan), it will monitor the air temperature and automatically adjust your heating and cooling accordingly.
However, air conditioning has become a little outdated, according the association.
“As air conditioning is increasingly connected to a modern lifestyle, the number of Americans who own and/or rent a home with air conditioning and are able to afford it is rapidly decreasing,” the association said in its 2017 report.
So if you are considering buying a new home, make sure to do your research and do it right.
