Searching for HVAC in new city

I live in a really big city that experiences extreme cold weather in the winter months and extremely hot weather in the summer months.

  • Right now it is the middle of the summer and I cannot wait for the winter weather to come and cool down the city.

I feel like I can escape the heat and it’s almost miserable every day to walk outside of my house. I don’t like feeling like this because I love going outside and going on walks every day, over the past few months it’s been quite miserable. I feel like every time I leave my house I’m just searching the city for a store or restaurant that has air-conditioning. I will go on my long walk but just stop in the doorway of a bodega so that I can get some air conditioning. I know it seems crazy that I go for walks just to sit in a store with Air conditioning, but it really is the only way to survive in the city in the summer. I really don’t like to leave my house in the winter months either when it’s so cold outside, but for some reason it’s much harder for me to adjust to the hot summer weather. I don’t have an HVAC system in my apartment either so I think that’s also a factor of why I love walking around and trying to find HVAC in the city. Our friends think I’m crazy that I don’t have a heating and cooling system in my apartment, but they just don’t know how expensive it is to find an apartment in the city with heating and cooling.
