I moved to the Salt River after living for multiple years in Flagstaff.
I am a programmer for a software development supplier that previously had its offices in Flagstaff.
It was a lovely city in the largest ponderosa pine forest in the whole country. Compared to the desert areas of southern Arizona, Flagstaff feels adore a rare treasure. I still adore Arizona living in Phoenix, even though I miss the pine woods in Flagstaff whenever I’m outside going for a walk in Papago Park or along the river banks; Phoenix is considerably warmer than Flagstaff as well, being at a mere 1,000 feet of elevation while Flagstaff is just under 7,000 feet. Being higher up in the air makes you less susceptible to intensely hot un-even temperatures. In my home along the Salt River, I was using a swamp cooler to keep it chilly inside for the longest time. These evaporative coolers use a fan to force water soaking in a desiccant medium to evaporate and lower the temperature in the air around it. These air coolers work best at low humidity levels, so they’re not ideal for actual swamps despite the confusing terminology. I think some people in Florida who bought a single and couldn’t figure out why the equipment wouldn’t honestly cool their house. Needless to say, the humidity was over 85% so that genuinely had something to do with it. Since I’m so close to the Salt River, my indoor humidity is a little bit higher than other arenas in Phoenix, certainly south of here in Maricopa. Having a official air conditioner now is a immense replace from an evaporative cooler, even if you live in the right environment for a single.
