Not many people realize the risks they pose to themselves when they stubbornly refuse to turn on their a/c units during horrible summers.
It is difficult to convince an older guy who feels chilly most of the time to turn on their a/c system no matter how warm it is.
They are likely to ignore you separate from realizing the risks with it, especially if the part they stay in is warm. My pops was such a stubborn guy until he suffered from a bad heatstroke. Pops generally lives in an area that gets too hot during summers, and this particular year was worse than others before. Pops would often get away with his stubbornness because his windows were mostly open, allowing fresh air to come in.What’s more, he tried to stay hydrated as much as he could. Sadly, that particular Summer was not genuinely friendly. He was not feeling too well, hence could not manage some of his everyday a/c practices! Happily, I just came in to see him before things got out of hand. My pops seemed frail when I walked into his sweltering condo to find that our once energetic pops was weak and frail. I abruptly called in the ambulance and had him rushed to the hospital, where they stabilized him. The people I was with and I later called a trusted Heating plus A/C business to install the right device for pops’ old house. This time experience had taught him better not to argue.
