Here in Cleveland, Ohio, we can get some pretty intense heat waves. Having a nice cool home to relax in during those spikes is a blessing, but in the southern states, AC is almost a necessity. Not only does it get very hot in the south, but the heat paired with the humidity can be dangerous.
Doing any physical job in that heat can be exhausting; we couldn’t imagine doing it without air conditioning!
Without the wide availability of cooling technology, many people might not live in the south!
