He told me we lived like we were in the Dark Ages and that’s when I reminded him he married me
I knew my husband wanted to have central air conditioning in our house, but I didn’t. I liked our window air conditioning units. My sister was constantly complaining about the rise in the energy bills when summer arrived. I didn’t want to have high energy bills. Our energy bills went down when we shut off the furnace and started using our window air conditioning units, but my husband didn’t believe me. I told him I would download four years of energy bills and he could compare them. There was a definite change in how much less our energy bills in the summer than in the winter. He told me his father always complained about the price of energy when summer arrived. I asked if they had central air conditioning in their home. He said everyone had central air conditioning. Everyone but us, that was. I grew up with window air conditioning units and they worked well. I would visit friends, and there were always areas in their homes that were more humid than others. The only time you noticed a change in our house, was at night. Dad would shut off all the air conditioning units, but the ones in our bedrooms. He said we didn’t need to cool the entire house when we were sleeping. We shut our doors to keep the cool air in our bedrooms, and we were happy. He told me we lived like we were in the Dark Ages and that’s when I reminded him he married me. I may have lived like it was the Dark Ages, but I was comfortable and we weren’t broke because of central air conditioning.
