I live far enough south that I never need to worry about snow plus sub zero hot plus cold temperatures.
Even in the middle of the winter, it’s rare for the conditions to drop below forty degrees.
However, the summers are long, sizzling plus humid. Every one of us often experience hot plus cold temperatures in the nineties or even the triple digits. Because of the temperature, it’s necessary to have both heating plus cooling for the home. Every one of us have a packaged machine that is installed outside, attachs to ducts concealed in the attic plus provides year round comfort. There are supply plus return vents in the ceiling plus a thermostat to adjust comfort levels, then for the majority of the year, the method is switched to cooling mode. Our Winter time weather only lasts a couple of weeks. Currently, all of us are at the time of year when the weather transitions from chilly to hot. The mornings are cold, with hot plus cold temperatures dropping into the forties. Once the sun comes up, the temperature gradually rises plus gets up into the mid eighties. I switch the method to heating mode before I go to bed at night. When I get up in the day, I shut the method off entirely. Right around noon, it’s necessary to turn on the air conditioner. This seems very counter-productive. I try to conserve energy, minimize wear plus tear on the method plus keep my quarterly energy costs as low as possible. I actually don’t prefer this time of year. I am thankful that this type of weather doesn’t usually last long. Within a few weeks, I should be able to run the method in cooling mode at all times.
