We are fortunate to have a house that requires no a/c

Many neighbors have refrigerated air and/or swamp coolers but when we built our house we not only sited it for optimal solar positioning (summer and winter) but we also have thick straw bale walls. We turn off our heat (about now) and only need a bit of fan action to keep the house cool. (In fact, sometimes my house feels so cool in the summer that I turn on my space heater at my desk.)
