It’s not too far away now.
Even though I just adore this time of year with the gorgeous weather as well as perfect temperatures, I think it’s coming.
The heat as well as humidity will not be too far away now. That is a combination you can completely count on around here in the summer. But our trusty HVAC unit keeps us comfortable inside when the temperatures outside hang close to triple digits. I’m still reveling in the fact that our cooling costs are still so low. I like to open the utility bill during the winter. It’s so mild here that the heat pump heating system hardly even comes on. That means our power bill is the lowest it is all year. But the people I was with and I more than make up for that during the summer. That’s why it’s imperative to be sure the HVAC equipment, the cabin as well as our family are all tuned in to saving on cooling costs. It starts with getting the a/c tune-up in the Springtime. This keeps the heat pump running at its most efficient. Then, I turn to the house. The largest thing is to not let all that HVAC treated air slip outside as well as the heat inside. So weather stipping around doors, windows as well as sliders have to be in good shape. It’s also worth a trip around the cabin to make sure there aren’t any gaps anywhere else that could sap the HVAC efficiency. When it comes to the family, the people I was with and I all have to get a bit more disciplined. Things care about pulling the drapes as well as maintaining thermostat control are super important. But the people I was with and I also do our best to actemperature to the heat so 76 degrees inside during the day feels pretty cool.
