1. A/C ruined the neighborhoods. Before A/C everyone was out on their stoops and conversed with their neighbors. Now days with A/C, everyone are inside their homes and don't even know the family next door.

2. I believe going from and A/C space to outdoors is probably harder on your system then being without A/C. Fore once you are acclimated to ambient temps, your system don't have to adjust to swinging temperture highs and lows.

3. I have worked on vessels with A/C and had to live the the wild swings... But every once and awhile the A/C goes out and though the crew is complaining, I don't have any trouble sleeping inside the hull as long as there is a fan going.
