Growing up, my father was in the Army so my buddy and I moved around a lot… It seemed like my buddy and I never stayed in one place for more than a year, every base was different & so were the houses my buddy and I lived in, but most of the time my buddy and I just lived in base housing.
It was easier that way; Some bases had nice houses, and other houses were infested with mold & bugs & falling apart; Another thing that I found interesting were the Heating & Air Conditioning systems in all of the different houses. Every single one of them had central heating & cooling, then however, how well this heating & cooling was a total crap shoot. Some houses had up-to-date Heating & Air Conditioning systems that were well ran tests on & worked well, those were a rarity though. In most cases the Heating & Air Conditioning systems were ancient, there was a lot of dust in the HVAC duct, & they broke down from time to time. I remember this one house where the furnace didn’t work. It only was lukewarm no matter how high you set the thermostat. In another house the air conditioning broke down 6 times in just under 2 years. Each time it broke down my buddy and I had to wait over a week before it was fixed. And then there were the thermostats, however we had dial thermostat or analog thermostats & no one was like the other. 73 degrees in one house was a much different temperature than 73 degrees in another house. I don’t know if that is because the thermostats weren’t calibrated or if it had to do with the design of the house.
