Home Forums General Discussion Air Conditioning and Off-grid : a possible solution? Re: Air Conditioning and Off-grid : a possible solution?


Air conditioning is bad. I’d rather have a fan and use a spray bottle (spray some water on your face, arms, feet) to keep cool. AC creates heat, hurts the ozone, gives you the illusion of a false temperature. This makes it harder for your body to adjust to the real temperatures outside, and the shock between temperatures from just going outside/inside or vice versa, can make you really really sick!

People die every year from heat exhaustion, but I find if I have three things, I can always keep cool:

1: Shade.

2: Air flow.

3: Water.

Hope that helps.
