Back when my roommate and I were looking for apartments, there was one feature that we especially wanted – ceiling fans. It was actually rather hard to find this feature, especially because we first thought they were a set design feature in every apartment. Knowing how extremely high the temperatures climb in the summer, it seems odd that local apartment complexes wouldn’t stock their units with as many cooling devices as possible, even if it does cost a little more money. It’s clearly a necessity. Even when the air conditioner is on full blast, or even if it’s seriously cold outside and we welcomed the warmth of the heater, I still like to have my ceiling fan on at night while I sleep. I don’t know why or how, but I tend to overheat like crazy while I’m asleep. Unless the HVAC system is set to 70 or lower, and I have a fan on, I will always wake up sweaty, or with moist sheets that indicate I had been sweating at some point during the night. I will never fully understand my body chemistry and why I’m only hot while I’m asleep. All I can say is, I’m glad we finally found an apartment complex that made sure their units contained fans in all of the bedrooms. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever survived a night without one!
