i live in Israel and in my country in almost every house there is air condition and we use it mostly in summer time when the temperature can reach 30 degrees celcius inside the house. i don't think we could live without that. i remember that in europe many people die in summer time because of the heat and i wonder why they don't install an air condition system which can save precious lives. in your country , do you use air condition inside the house? if you don't want to mention your country just say in which continent and what do you think the percentage of houses which have air condition.

I do, but I live in the same country as you, so that probably doesn't come like a big surprise to you. I used to live in Northern Europe before I moved to Israel though, and there basically no-one has airconditioning. It is simply not hot so often, so people don't see the need to spend a lot of money on getting airconditioning there.

Hi,I think some people are being practical in not using air condition. Besides, it eats a lot of electricity, and it's not good for the environment. Here in my country, its really hot especially when summer, but we choose not to buy air condition because it cost too much electricity. We then buy electric fan(cheap and not eating too much electicity, also eco-friendly). we just put some ice on the front of the fan and seems like its air conditioned. Sometimes being practical is a good thing. thank you.
