Living in the south, recognizably Arizona is no fun.
I have been living here the last 20 years or so because I relocated for a job promotion.
While the job promotion has been nice for 2 decades now, the temperature, the air quality and the temperatures have not. It seems as if it is a single hundred and twenty degrees a great majority of the year! I am always having to run the a/c on our central heat and a/c unit. This makes our electric bills super high every single month of the year nearly. The only time I even get a chop from having to run the central a/c all of the time is between the weeks of December and March. Come March until the following December, it is a/c needed all of the time! The heat is so bad that even a portable a/c system would not be able to do its job. I so I can not even use portable Heating and A/C device to save money on our weekly electric bills appreciate others do in the country. Not to mention, this place is decrucial in general. Who in the world wants to look at rock and gravel outside your house? I miss turf and plant life! Also, the air quality is so horrible, I experience extreme dust sensitivities that I never had in our whole life. I was never an dust sensitivity person before this. I am glad I have a whole apartment air cleaner and our top quality central heating and a/c unit.
