Life on the farm is great when you have HVAC


Growing up in rural America, I am very familiar with how farm life has developed over the years and how it has improved. One specific thing that has definitely gotten better is the use of HVAC systems. When I was just a young farm boy, I remember baling hay in the barn during the hottest part of the day. The barn was so hot I would be completely covered in sweat within a few minutes. It was hard in the winter as well because our barn didn’t have a good furnace system. We would close all the doors and windows and would start a fire in the fire pit to keep the animals warm enough, but the hay loft was always very cold and that is where we did a lot of our work. It wasn’t until I was grown and we had many more farm hands when we got a furnace and air conditioner for our barn and lounge area. I was so happy especially for the air conditioner not only for me but also the animals as they would also be really hot at certain times of the day. The difference having an air conditioner made in the amount of work we did was astounding. We used to get so hot that it would slow our work down, but now that we have an air conditioner, all farmhands work at least two times harder than before. When I start a farm of my own, the first appliances I will purchase are an air conditioner and a furnace because I know they will make everything better.
