    It is true that the use of air-conditioners has put a lot of strain on electricity grid in Vietnam. There are a lot of reasons for this, and I believe that it would be some negative consequences
    There are several reasons why it could be argued that using air-conditioner is detrimental to electricity grid. A main reason is that power plants may carry more burden of producing electricity, which has led to a huge strain on the electricity grid of a city. Another reason is that people have the propensity for using air-conditioners excessively in the summer as the weather is so hot that they are unable to sleep without them. Therefore, it will be one of their habits that cannot be given up easily, which means they will continue to consume electricity from air-conditioners for a long period of time. For instance, my parents always sleep within air-conditioners, and they could not sleep if they sleep without it. Finally, some companies use air-conditioners for the purpose of catering for their employees so that their staff would be more productive.As a result, companies will be more prosperous.
    However, I believe that there would be some negative consequences for a rise in the use of air-conditioners.The main issue is that state budget might be used for producing electricity instead of being spent on healthcare, accommodations and transport facilities. In some developed countries, there are still some people living below the poverty line,and state subsidies need to be used for supporting them instead of electricity. As a result, there will be a lack of money and the living standard of that country might decrease. Secondly, this has resulted in global warming, which is one of the main concerns in the world. For example, some developing countries such as Vietnam use coal and oil to produce electricity, which has damaged to our environment as they release a large amount of carbon dioxide.
    In conclusion, there are several reasons for the use of air-conditioners, and there might be some negative consequences if we continued to use it excessively

    These days, with the onslaught of modern devices, air-conditioners have become common in each Vietnamese household, especially in the summer, posing several predicaments to electricity grid and individuals. This situation is induced by a multitude of factors but various measures can be taken to solve this.

    The first and foremost rationale is the hot weather. It is common knowledge that weather in the summer is invariably hot, raising the needs for satisfactory solutions. Therefore, air-conditioners represents the most effective ways to deal with the summer heat owing to the cool air provided and reasonable prices. Particularly, climate change has taken place, increasing temperature over the years in Vietnam. This has even made air-conditioners become more widespread. For instance, my family in the 1990s rarely used air-conditioner in the summer. In contradistinction, in recent years, without this household appliance, my family cannot have a sound sleep. Not only is the situation caused by hotter weather but it is also triggered by increased living standard. Currrently, people's salaries are augmented gradually and cutting-edge technology are on the upward trend, both of which is why a number of individuals opt for the choice of air-conditioners to enjoy the cool environment.

    This prevailing trend causes numerous issues in many aspects. First of all, this presents a daunting challenge to the power industry as to how to furnish households with enough electricity. It is an undisputed fact that air-conditioners, even those labeled as power-saving, consume a massive amount of electricity. Hence, should the air-conditioner usage become immoderate, electricity grid do not have the capacity for ensuring equitable distribution. More seriously, this can lead to overload and eventually, electricity cut-off in certain regions. Furthernore, this can exert detrimental effects on the environment. It is because electricity usage releases a certain amount of carbon dioxide that enormous application surely worsen the current state of environment, which has already been alarming and contributes to climate change.
    In conclusion, overuse of air-conditioners in Vietnam in the summer have catastrophic influences on both individuals and societies. From my perspective, immediate actions should be taken to reduce electricity consumed by these devices as much as possible. It is also essential that people find other more power-efficient and cost-effective alternatives.

    The fact that Vietnam today is experiencing an overuse of air-conditioners in hot days gives a rise to a burden of electric consumption in metropolis. There are a wide range of contributors for this phenomenon coupled with a variety of issues.

    First of all, economy growth can be blamed for extravagant use of air-conditioners. With an advance of technology together with loose, open policies and intellectual workforce, Vietnamese economy has become more competitive and developed. As a result, job opportunities with effective incentive schemes and perks may be provided for more employees. Consequently, more the rich afford high living standards including usage of cooling machines in summer days due to the fact that they may earn more for their living. To exemplify, my family even could not pay for a new cooling system six years ago but now we may pay for twenty four- hour operation of two air conditioners. Obviously, most households may act in the same way when they have ability to pay.

    There might be a large number of consequences resulted from this social issue, consisting of environmental pollution. The more great deal of electricity use is, the more heavily citizens burden on environment. Should they neither raise their environment conscience nor cut off the electricity use in cooling systems, they properly force electric manufacture to abuse materials which are harmful to nature to produce electricity such as nuclear, oil. Certainly, the final consequence is environmental pollution.

    In brief, overload use of air-conditioner can be resulted from economy growth, resulting in environmental pollution in Vietnamese urban areas.

    It is true that these days there is a widespread use of air-conditioners in Vietnam. This trend is caused by several reasons and I think that it also results in numerous effects.

    On the one hand, there are a variety of reasons causing the excessive use of air-conditioners. Firstly, people could safeguard themselves from the possibility of having several forms of disorders. A recent survey carried out by scientists from the University of California has pointed out that there is an approximate number of 30% Vietnamese family living under heating are more likely to get prickly heat in comparison with those having air-conditioners in their homes. Therefore, not only they are able to stay relaxed under comfortable environment but also protect their health from being at risks, which results in a better standard of living. Secondly, air-conditioners could assist students in studying under high temperature. Take Vietnamese as an example, nowadays Vietnamese students find themselves comfortable in studying throughout the summer, thanks to the fact that the Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has put a great effort on installing air-conditioners in all schools within the country in recent years. Consequently, they would be able to study continuously without worrying about having to drink lots of water to retain the amount of water in the body stemming from losing through sweat, which leads to a better productivity.

    On the other hand, there are an array of disadvantages of abusing air-conditioners. The principal one is that the health could be prejudiced. For example, if a person sits passively in a room with an air-conditioner for a long time, he or she is likely to get a cold or even a flu, leading to having their health cognitively intoxicated. Another effect is that the atmosphere could be negatively affected. Since the air-conditioners generate as much as 30cm2 of carbon dioxide emissions while operating, they would heavily contaminate the habitable environment, resulting in damaging the living environment as a whole.

    In conclusion, because of the abusing use of air-conditioners, I am convinced that some steps should be adopted collectively in order to solve this adverse trend.

    The living condition in Vietnam has been improved dramatically day by day, that’s why air-conditioners are more affordable, especially in the urban areas. In summer, this country experiences an abundant utilization of that kind of device, which leads to the enormous pressure on the municipal electricity loading system. This derives from several reasons and there are not few troubles occurred from the matter.


    It cannot be denied that the global warming has caused human life more uncomfortable climate and thanks to the development of the living standards in Vietnam, people are consuming more and more air-conditioners. It’s getting hotter from year to year and the peak is obviously noticed in summer. Moreover, a large number of office buildings in the city have been facilitated with great air-conditioning systems to offer the staff more ideal working environment. Furthermore, it happens the same to residential situations. It is, therefore, not surprised to see that many people can enjoy the cool air during summer time.


    On the other hand, the overloading of power in the city can lead to the weak and unstable electricity transmission and also the bigger sum of money spent on the exceeding levels of consumption as well as the harmful gas emitted into the air. In fact, those problems could affect the use of electricity citywide, making electric devices be shortened its longevity. Besides, they have impacts on the economy when people tend to spend less on shopping due to the rise of living costs. Last but not least, air pollution has been seriously contributed to by the over deployment of air-conditioners.


    All in all, the above original causes of the excessive use of air-conditioners have brought difficulties to the electricity grid in the city. Its effects should be carefully considered to have helpful solutions to help to protect the environment, electricity usage and people’s expenses.

    Among the social issues which may draw a certain amount of attention among people in today’s world, one topic for discussion is related to Vietnamese people’s excessive use of energy. As a matter of fact, there is undoubtedly an increasing amount of electricity from air-conditioners being used uncontrollably, especial during summer, which can be regarded as one of the major problems at the present time and needs addressing in no time.


    For a start, there is no denying the significance of analyzing the prime causes of such a situation. Firstly, the consensus of opinion is that air-conditioners are of paramount importance to any place in the summer, not to mention Vietnam, a country with tropical climate, so people will make complete use of such useful devices during that period to get rid of the boiling hot weather. Another point worth taking into consideration is that a lack of awareness of many potential problems arising from the overuse of air-conditioner also leads to such an issue. People just take advantage of the benefits air-conditioners bring them for the sake of their convenience without acknowledging the negative consequences in the long run.


    There are many adverse consequences ensuing from more and more people excessively use air-conditioners. To start with, it proves to be uneconomical when it comes to a waste of energy as the cost for electricity will be exorbitant. As a result, not only people have to spend more and more money on the electricity bill for their insensible acts but such a situation also causes a severe damage to the environment. Secondly, blackout is likely to happen because electricity is not generated in time to supply to other people, which, as a consequence, both fundamentally affects an individual’s daily routine and for certain presents huge problems to the activity of any industry of business


    All things considered, the overuse of air-conditioners does result in quite a lot negatives mentioned earlier and has tremendous damaging impacts on human and the environment. Therefore, government officials in general and every single person in particular should come up with effective solutions to such a problem as soon as possible for a better life.

    In the world's today, the use of the air-conditioner is increasing. Almost families, from the countryside to the city, each of them has at least one air-conditioner. This causes a huge strain on the citywide electricity grid. Analyzing the usual electric cut and the huge electric bill will show this.
    Firstly, we need to know the reason of the increasing in the use of the air-conditioner. There are a large number of factors of this, but the two most important reasons are the development of technology and the global warming. As we know, the 21st century marks the breakthrough of technology. Human beings invent a lot of great things, especially the mod cons and one of them is the air-conditioner - the household application which makes us feel cool and relax wheares it is so hot in the air. Although the great inventions bring to use great benefits, the harm of them is too enormous. It is the climate changes which destroy our lives, one of them is global warming. The factories give off the poisonous things which damage the nature. Moreover, many trees are cut, so they make the Earth is more hot, it can amount to 40-50 Degree Celsius. There is an increase in the temperature in the past 50 years of 10-12 Degree Celsius due to the global warmings. Thus, we use the air-conditioner more and more.
    The increase in the use of the air-conditioner brings about the usual electric cut and the huge electric bill.
    First of all, we are always affected by the usual electric cut which is caused by the use of the much-electricity-consume things such as the air-conditioner. It is easy-understandings why the electricity is usually cut: the productivity of the electricity that the electric factory products doesn't live up to the demand of the people. That's why the electricity is usually cut, which makes us feel uncomfortable.
    Secondly, using the air-conditioner too much can make the electric bill huge. It is not surprise that the much-consume-electricity famlilies have to pay 1-2 million VND or more because the household applications such as the air-conditioner consumes too much electricity. In contrast, the little-consume-electricity famillies only have to pay as many times little as the latter because they sometimes or not use the air-conditioner.
    To sum up, the increase in the use of the air-conditioner in Vietnam was cause by the development of technology and the high temperature that results from the global warming and besides many advantages it has, it also causes the serious consequences, two of them are the usual electric cut and huge electric bill. Thus, we have to have solutions to solve these problem.

    Air-conditioners which have been used excessively in the summer in Viet Nam have put a large amount of pressure on the citywide electricity grid. In my opinion, there are some main causes of this trend and many inevitable problems that are brought about.
    To begin with, the excessive uses of conditioners have been attributed to some following causes. First, that the weather changes worse and worse is one crucial reason. In fact, over the past five years has witnessed severe summer of which temperature is getting higher and higher. Therefore, the weather is increasingly severe, which leads to huge demands for conditioners. Another important cause is that household incomes have been improved dramatically. People work hard to earn their living so that their lives are satisfied. Obviously, everyone wants to have a comfortable feeling in air-conditioned room after a hard-working day.
    However, it cannot be denied that there are some downsides to the popularity of air-conditioners. The most prominent one is the environmental problems. Undoubtedly, the more people use air-conditioners, the more are emitted, which do harm to the environment. Global warming, melting icebergs, rising sea level and catastrophe looms are the urgent call from nature. Psychologically, using air-conditioners too much can cause many health problems including dry skins.
    In conclusion, the mass use of air-conditioners in today's lives is put down to some causes. This trend, however, has unavoidably brought many disadvantages to mankind as well as our environment.

    As far as it is concerned, the utilization of air conditioning has been on the increase for the past few years and posed as a burden to the electrical system in urban areas. My essay will illustrate thoroughly the reasons for this phenomenon and issues related to this.

    A rapid growth in the usage of air conditioners can be mainly derived from two factors. At the first analysis, summer in recent years is experiencing a remarkable rise in temperatures. It is a striking fact that the world is under heavy influence of the green house effects. Given that, people feel an intense craving for cooling devices in their homes and offices, which triggers a boost in the use of air conditioners. At the second analysis, it is technological advances that stimulate the need for air conditioners. Thanks to the acceleration in scientific developments, the expansion of air conditioning is now in its full bloom. The fact that they are available, coupled with becoming more affordable makes them one of the must-have items in the house.

    The growing demand for air conditioners is not without its consequences. At the heart of the matter is supply cannot meet the need. Undoubtedly, more air cooling’s consumption has to be accompanied by more constructions and maintenance of electricity grid. As a result, the city’s budget for electrical systems will exceed, which can present a major problem to the overall economy, especially regarding developing cities. Besides, the amplified utilization of air conditioners gives rise to health-related issues. Due to excessive indulgence in air-conditioned environments, people are more susceptible to colds, flu headaches and labored breathing. In light of this, the positive application of air conditioners has been reversed to the negative.

    In conclusion, higher use of air conditioners these days stems from technological developments and abrupt changes in temperatures. Consequently, physical problems and shortages of electricity arise. I hold an unshakable belief that by making a concerted effort, we will ultimately resolve the problem of overusing air conditioning.

    It is probably undeniable that Vietnamese people have lately overused air-conditioners in the dry season, which leads to a vast amount of power consumption in urban areas. This essay is going to outline the factors contributing to this phenomenon as well as point out the problems resulted from it.
    There may be myriads reasons for the trend of using air-conditioners in the summer in our country. First of all, the unusually rising temperature in this period of the year can not be ignored. Under the great influence of some extreme weather phenomenons, especially El Nino, the average temperature tends to increase unexpectedly, which makes days in summer become burning. As a result, people are highly likely to utilize freezing machines to reduce the heat. Additionally, air-conditioners are quite appealing to users thanks to special features, which others machines do not have. They can quickly make the air cool and fresh and release no heat during their operation, which an electric fan can not do.
    That the massive utilization of air-conditioning machines will cause numerous challenges seems to be irrefutable. One of the problems can be the growing shortage of electricity. It is true that air-conditioners overuse can put an enormous burden on generating power. When we can not meet the great demand of electricity, many producing activities will be forced to halt, which can be absolutely catastrophic. Besides, Using air-conditioners in a high frequence may be fatal. In fact, there have been a number of reports about conditioners explosions nationwide, killing numerous people and leading to an array of casualties. If these explosions are not controlled probably, the occurance of spreading fire is inevitable, which is now a big headache for the gorvernment.
    In short, the use of air-conditions is supposed to be both good and bad. I personally believe for sure that people should govern the utilization of these machines to make them an optimal choice for the uncomfortable summer.
