Shoot, my pal and I hardly even had to run the a/c all that often
There was absolutely a learning curve that came with moving down south, however just from a cultural standpoint, I had a lot to try and get my head around, then i so didn’t want to come off as some abrasive northern transplant! Plus, I entirely loved the slower pace and easier vibe down here, sure, Summer can be brutal and comes with plenty of a/c, but really, as long as you have great residential Heating, Ventilation, and A/C, you’re pretty golden, and for sure, all the stores and shops I go into have great commercial Heating, Ventilation, and A/C so it’s not like I’m perspiring while I’m shopping, then and at work, there is even zone controlled Heating, Ventilation, and A/C so I only sweat going back and forth to the parking garage, then during the Summer, I stay inside the commercial Heating, Ventilation, and A/C of the building and eat my breakfast in the cut room. But during the rest of the year, I love ditching the a/c for the nice little courtyard bench just a couple of blocks down the street. It’s the perfect little spot that’s a perfect spot for a quiet breakfast outside. At home, I learned entirely quick that you simply have to pull the curtains every single afternoon before heading to work. Direct afternoonlight heating is the number one enemy to heat pump efficiency. I never had to deal with that when I was residing up north. Shoot, my pal and I hardly even had to run the a/c all that often. But down here, the direct afternoonlight heating will send the monthly bills through the roof. So I make sure that all the blinds and shades are pulled and the control device is set high during the peak heating hours of the afternoon.
