Last summer, I flew down south to visit my parents on the southeast coast.
It’s one of the only places in the country that has a truly tropical climate and it has its charms. My parents love living next to the ocean, and the beaches really are pristine and beautiful where they live. However, I’m not necessarily as used to the heat and humidity as they are. I didn’t grow up in the southeast, my parents just decided to settle down there when they retired. I lived nearly a thousand miles from them, so I decided to take a plane. Thus, when I got into town I need a rental car. I never really thought too hard about climate control in vehicles before this rental car. In short, the air conditioning unit in this vehicle was purely divine! It banished away the heat and humidity and left nothing but cool, refreshing comfort. It was a pretty nice vehicle in general, but it was the air conditioning unit that I was obsessed over. Suddenly, I wanted a vehicle with a HVAC unit as robust and powerful as this one. In fact, the home my parents lived in didn’t even have air conditioning as good as the car! My parents had apparently decided to take a minimalistic approach to HVAC. Despite the size and beauty of their home, they mostly had ceiling fans and window air conditioning units. In this heat? I couldn’t believe it! I guess my parents really have acclimated to the weather down here, but it just made me want to sleep in my rental car with the great air conditioning!
