Maybe that is a strong word. But it is ironic how many people claim to love the summer. They wait and wait all year for it to get warm, and then blast their air conditioning to a chilly 68 degrees or so. I used to think I loved the summer until I picked up a side job working outside in the heat for much of last year. Now I realize that spring is really my favorite. I am sure there are some true heat lovers out there, but I suspect the majority of people who claim to love summer would feel much differently without the technology of air conditioning.

Not at all in my case. I love summer for any sum and warm it can offer (which isn't a lot here anyway). Maybe if I lived in a very very hot climate I'd think about using AC on a very slight setting but everywhere I've been in the world so far I haven't wanted to use it. That's my personal experience so far.

Sure. I'm a hypocrite because I actually can't handle the cold well and layer up during the winter. I don't see why it matters to be a hypocrite in that aspect.

I usually don't turn on the A/C until the indoor temps gets to above 78F or so. I hate it when buildings are overairconditioned.

Oh come on. NOT AGAIN

This topic has been beaten to death and beyond. Give us a break.

FYI, I lived in Singapore and the only moment I used my aircon was on some days in April around midday when it was above 33°C, and that's because my room was made in such a way that there was absolutely no air flow inside.
Other than that I think I'd have never used it. I almost never used it at night either.

Where I worked, I hated the AC, always felt cold and couldn't wait to take a break every few hours to get some warmth outside.

No. Just because one likes a differing environment inside than outside does not make one inconsistent or fake. Of course, that depends. If one claims to like hot climates but hides inside under air conditioning due to it being too hot in such climates then that is fakery - the same applies to cold. However if one genuinely likes the outdoor conditions but simply prefers a different indoor environment that should be perfectly acceptable, not to mention consistent.

I think this only applies to the general public. The general public crave heat and sun and often put their AC's on full blast during summer, and the same applies to store owners.

This doesn't really apply to weather enthusiasts though, as heat lovers, well, love heat, so they're not really bothered by the heat or humidity.

What Patricius Maximus said. I love cold air and snow in the winter, but want the INSIDE of my house to be warm. In summer, I love hot dry air outside, but prefer cooler, though also dry air inside.
