Working outside is demanding on health and air conditioning systems

If you have ever had to work outside for a living, especially in the Southeast where I live, you probably appreciate air conditioning more than any other person.

you also probably really appreciate water as well. two of my brothers, at different times, worked on the road crew. Believe me it’s not a lot of fun in the summer especially. our thermostats regularly reach triple digits between June and the end of August, so it is no easy task to be a roofer or work on the road crew or climb telephone poles or be a farmer or whatever else you do outside. All of these people drink a lot of water. my brothers used to have the biggest cooler I have ever seen and it would be attached to the back of the truck and they would fill it with ice in the morning. throughout the day it would melt, and everyone would drink from it. The blazing sun is not only hard on people, though. The sun itself is actually hard on your air conditioning system, as well. why? Well, the answer is simple. The hotter it is outside, the harder your air conditioner has to work in order to reach the cooling temperature that you want. For example, let’s say you set your thermostat to 72 °. If it’s 80° outside, a house AC unit essentially only has to provide eight degrees of cooling. but if it’s 90° outside, the air conditioner has to run harder and longer because it has to provide 18 degrees of cooling. Not only does your air conditioning have to get your indoor air temperature lowered, it has to keep your house at that constant thermostat setting all the time. This takes a lot of work. The moral of the story is if you work outside, take care of your ac, and no matter where you work make sure you take good care of your air conditioner.
