I'm telling you on the assumption that you'll vote for guns (and obtain guns) as opposed to national healthcare. While I know everyone in this country would prefer the safety net, it really needs to be implemented as 50 payer rather than single payer so the lawmakers have more room to experiment and learn from mistakes (which is pretty much inevitable, it's not like they've worked in any jobs in the system, let alone all of them).

cucked beyond saving.

>> No.72082920

Nothing, especially when you already have solar panels on your roof to compensate for the electricity use. The biggest problem is that our homes were not build with AC in mind. High ceilings meaning larger air volumes, large windows that heat up the place like crazy, and there are no airducts in place for a big central AC unit. Basically we're forced to use smaller portable AC units which aren't that effective and would need several to keep the entire house cool. That shit quickly adds up in terms of cost.

Also depending on which part of Europe you live in you might only have to deal with this kind of weather for ±2 weeks a year. In other words, AC is not a worthwhile investment to everyone.
