I recently traveled to Fort Worth, Texas for work.
I was shocked at how hot that entire state is.
I am used to milder summers where I only wear a tank top in the heat of the day. The evenings are cool to where I put on a jacket and pants. In Fort Worth, the heat is no joke. You can’t get by without a proper working air conditioner. Thankfully that entire city isn’t messing around with their cooling systems. I basically ran from one air conditioned place to the other. My hotel had quality AC, a pool and a fitness room. Due to all this, I really enjoyed my stay. The place of work that I was at used a high velocity air conditioner to chill the entire space. It was an ingenious way to operate. It uses small, bendy ductwork in the older slats of a building. Then the air can quickly whip from room to room by lowering the temperature in minutes rather than hours. There was no humidity or hot spots. There was no waiting for the building to feel cool. I was amazed at how infrequently the AC needed to turn on. This Is the future of AC for sure. I need the sunshine, good food, sweet people and air conditioners. I was relieved to return home to where it wasn’t so hot though. I am just not built for the heat and humidity. I like being able to wear a jacket once in a while.
