Not sure why everybody should suffer the effects of the drain that AC puts on the system.

Note I wouldn't be arguing this in a climate where AC is arguably more required than preferred.

How about just telling people to cool it a bit with the AC. Excuse the pun. I tend to note people going overkill with these sytems and neighbors that seemingly have their AC units pumping nonstop while having open windows...
