{phx} baking in the desert

July 1, 2009

When we were little and it was summer time, my dad was always against baking things because it turning on the oven heated up the house too much and wasted too much electricity. Thinking about that now, it makes me wonder if people in phx bake less because it would require the air conditioning to work harder to cool the house down. Or maybe because the air conditioning is working so hard anyway and because it’s too hot to do anything outside, people end up baking more. Or maybe it really doesn’t matter and nobody else really thinks turning the oven on during the summer is a big deal at all. I tried baking some stuff the other day but I couldn’t tell if it made the air conditioning work harder because my roommate keeps the temperature too low anyway. Hmm …
