Air Conditioning in Laramie, WY

People from out of town ask the darndest things!  Fan Man

The #1 question that always makes me smile...

"Does that home have air conditioning?"

Air conditioning?!  In Laramie?  Ha ha ha ha ... you are kidding, ....right?!?  

Oh, you're not?!  Yes, there are a 
few homes in town with actual, whole-house air conditioning and many businesses have air conditioning, too.  However, when it comes to our own houses, most people get by with fans and open windows.  Though, I do have to admit in the last few years, we are seeing more and more homes in town with air conditioning.

We have been able to get by all these years because the hot, hot days of summer last only 4 to 6  weeks. And even then, these hot, hot temperatures rarely make it out of the 80 degree range. 

Then, just about when we think we couldn't possibly stand the unbearable summer heat any longer, a cool front blows in and the heat is gone. 

Thus, when it comes to air conditioning in Laramie, it's just doesn't pay to install and maintain a commodity that would be used for only one month a year.

On the middle chart, Cooling and Heating Degree Days, the lines show how much a home's HVAC will have to work to keep the house comfortable throughout the year.  Do you see how hard the air conditioner (blue line) will have to work?


It's okay if you ask about air conditioning though, because even if the answer is "No", it still gives me a chance to SMILE!
