Hong Kong’s Relationship with Air Conditioning? A Love/Hate One!

Since we’re all about finding out what makes people comfortable and how we all use our AC, we recently decided to check this thoroughly and run a survey among over 600 respondents in Hong Kong, our home base!

In warmer months, our daily habits and routines can change according to seasonal factors. Fluctuating humidity and scattered rainfall can affect our sleeping patterns while long, sunny days might impact how much time we spend indoors.

In minutes, you feel waves of chilled air sweep over the room. You stop sweating, feel less irritable, and internally thank whoever created the wondrous cold air machine.
