I hear it all the time. The newcomers to the section are just blown away by the heat of summer. And to their credit, it does indeed get easily sizzling warm here in the summer. That’s something a guy can for sure count on. It’ll be hot, humid and there will be the need for heating and air conditioning. Yet people current to the section tend to panic a bit. They are accustomed to seeing summertime uneven temperatures in the Spring. So they start cranking the a/c to summer time levels. At least the sort of summertime levels they are accustomed to. But that ends up becoming a bit of a vicious circle really. This is because by the time the summer time heat does land on us in late May or early June, those folks have control device settings that aren’t sustainable. For me, unsustainable control device settings are those that result in heating and air conditioning cooling costs that resemble a daily car payment. And that’s not nice. Plus, it makes going outside simply unbearable when you go from 74 degrees inside to near a hundred outside. And that’s no way to live a summer. There is plenty of great time outside of the peak heating hours to appreciate all that is provided out of doors in this region. The best thing to do is simply get used to the temperature and the heat at the beginning of Spring.Then, 74 degrees inside feels easily fantastic and you can still deal with going outside. Plus, the heating and air conditioning costs are so incredibly more satisfactory and so much more affordable than the alternative. I tell this to the newbies however they rarely listen.
