Everybody has e-readers, tablets, or other devices to read books these days. I've always preferred having a physical copy of a book, as there's something magical about being able to hold a book in your own hands. Seeing it, smelling the paper and bindings – it can’t be replaced by anything else. I think I'm just old-fashioned like that. Speaking of which, there’s an older book shop that I still frequent from time to time. I used to easily appreciate it as a kid, as the book shop had such an amazing collection that I always found to be a treasure trove. So many treasures to read across all kinds of bizarre genres, was such a nice thing for me. Sadly, the book shop still has some problems. The most glaring issue was still the temperature controls, which seemed non-existent. I suppose there is a/c, because I can see the vents above my head, but the cool air does not seem to reach genuinely very far down towards guests of the book shop. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it's so claustrophobic in this tiny book shop! That's another thing about it – this book store is more of a fire hazard than anything else! The vast majority of aisles through the shelving are only wide enough for a single person to fit through. I think the stuffiness adds to the sense that there has not much cooling from the a/c going on. As a result, it's always pretty warm inside the library – even on a cold winter’s morning, oddly enough. I think that is a plus for winter sales though. Anyway, despite its flaws, it's still my single favorite of bookstores! It may have not had the best temperature controls, but it wasn't one of those places for sitting and reading – that’s a library.

I don’t get how some people prefer not to use their A/C HVAC provider

I remember when I used to visit my great-aunt when I was just a kid. I did not know her as well as I wanted to, but my parents would come by to visit now and again, and bring me along. All I remember was that her apartment smelled pretty strange, and it was always so warm and very stuffy in there. I can't even remember if she had air conditioning! It surely did not feel as if she did. I may have caught a glimpse of a window A/C unit somewhere in her apartment once. I was polite back then, smiling and hugging her when I saw her, but then I would have to wait in her warm and stuffy apartment as my parents carried on a conversation. I’d get warmer and warmer, until I was practically dripping with sweat! Not to mention how very bored I was. I remember one time, during the ride back from her place, I asked my parents if we could look into buying her an air conditioning unit. They laughed and laughed, and I never understood why – but they explained how she already had an air conditioning unit. The problem was, she barely ever used it. I could not even begin to understand! Even at that age, why would anyone choose to go without their air conditioning unit when their apartment is so warm and uncomfortable! Maybe she was trying to save some money on her energy bills or something like that. I'm not sure if that extra cash would bring comfort to me if I was uncomfortable in my own home. I think she wasn't, but who knows now. I do not think that I will ever get to the point where I'm so old, I no longer appreciate reliable air conditioning. I can tell you this though – I'm not there yet!

I think I’ll just stay indoors where my HVAC system keeps me comfortable     Quality heating and air

Sometimes, when I start to reflect on my generic work life and how I spend my weekends, I realize that I’m not really one to venture out as much as others would. This kind of makes me feel like a hermit, and I think of bizarre things that I can do to love the outdoors plus get some fresh air. Of course, I also remember how the temperature is where I live: generally, just awful. Summers are brutally hot and unforgivably humid, with harsh thunderstorms often appearing out of nowhere to ruin any outdoor plans. The winter can be pretty cold too, though we barely see snow. We do still get our fair share of freezing rain! Tell me, does it sound like a good old romp in these conditions? It isn’t! It never is! It's a lot more fun to stay inside and take comfort in your own home – and your own temperature control system. Maybe that is another reason why I do not go outside often – I have what’s easily one of the best Heating plus Air Conditioning units money can buy! It makes my home feel cozy to the point of never wanting to leave it! In the summertime, I blast the a/c while turning on the dehumidifier for extra comfort. At that point, my home feels so cool, crisp, and refreshing! When your home feels like this, how could anyone want to leave and endure the harsh outdoor climate? So long as I have an excellent air conditioning system in my house, I don’t have the slightest inkling to see what the outside world has to offer… unless I need to run out for groceries.

I’m not going to the theater – not when I can have the same experience at home, but better!

I’m starting to get convinced that the best way to watch and enjoy film is from the comfort of my home. I have just about had it with going to the theater these days, and I know I’m not the only one! Ticket prices are ridiculously costly, and the concession stand is just ridiculous. Who …

Shopping online in the comfort of your home is safe, convenient – and cheap!

It’s not necessarily a good idea to stay home all the time, given how it makes you a hermit. I consider myself to be pretty active too, though when it comes to a single activity, I’ve just about had it with physically going out. I’m talking about shopping at the local supermarket or any other …
