We’ve all seen the pictures of the average American family sleeping in a hot home.
They sit at their computers, watching TV, and sometimes they do just a little bit of laundry.
They also do some outdoor exercise in their yards.
But according to a new report, the average Americans’ air conditioning usage has fallen by 20 percent in the last two years, according to new research from Duke University.
That means that more and more of us are using less indoor air conditioning.
In fact, according the research, the share of Americans who actually turn on the air conditioner each day has dropped to about 14 percent.
Why do we need less indoor cooling?
The reason is not hard to guess.
Our homes have become increasingly energy efficient, and that means that when we turn on our air conditioners, they’re being turned off a lot more.
The energy needed to run the air conditioning system is increasing.
That’s because the more efficient the cooling system, the more energy it consumes.
That has created a vicious cycle, with more energy being used in cooling and less being used to cool the homes.
And that’s hurting us, as well.
How much is too much?
The new study found that the share that turn off the air conditions each day in 2015 was roughly 8 percent, down from nearly 12 percent in 2014.
Is there a solution?
This is a problem that needs to be solved.
In the United States, the federal government is looking at ways to reduce the number of people who have to use air conditionators, and we should be supporting this.
We should be investing in new, low-energy, low CO2 homes, and building new ones that can provide a little more space for people to relax.
We need more insulation.
We also need more homes that are energy efficient and are designed for the outdoors.
And we need to make sure that the energy savings from air conditioning are shared with everyone in the community.
We don’t have to wait until next year for this to get fixed.
