It really pays to get just the least bit proactive with stuff in my life.
I’m just not all that much of a super motivated person when it comes to preparation and proactivity.
So I tend to just deal with situations rather than seeking solutions. I just don’t want to deal with the extra work. Spending all the time I do inside the zone controlled HVAC at work comes with as much relaxation as I can manage. My job is stressful and requires so much of my time and energy. When I’m home, I just want to relax a bit and let the residential HVAC soothe my body and soul. Getting off the couch on the weekend to get proactive about saving on air conditioning costs was not appealing. Yet for years, I’ve been complaining about the high cost of HVAC cooling. This is just sort of part of the deal when you live in this region. The heat and humidity levels can get super intense from June through September. Like temps around a hundred and an equal measure of humidity. It’s for sure a double whammy. This spring, I just decided when I was calling for the air conditioning tune up, I was going the rest of the way toward saving as much as possible. So I sealed up the house really tight. Then, I put in solar shades on the side of the house that gets the direct sunlight heating. And I finally figured out how to program the digital thermostat. The results so far have been quite amazing. I’m saving a full 25 percent on HVAC cooling over the same time last year.
