There is no disputing the fact that the Summer weather has arrived.
When I can feel the sweat starting as I walk to the vehicle in my driveway, the heat and humidity are here. I swear, I’m going to get one of those remote starters so I can have the air conditioning cooling my vehicle before I get into it. But the air conditioning in my vehicle isn’t absolutely the main Heating and A/C cooling issue on my radar this time of year. It’s now time to be disciplined with the air conditioning so those Heating and A/C cooling costs don’t destroy the budget. When the two of us first moved to this region, the two of us dealt with the heat by throwing more and more Heating and A/C cooling at it as the Summer went along. By the time the two of us got to October and the heat began to relent, the two of us had rung up a immense air conditioning bill. From that point on, I have worked to keep that from happening again. It was a bit of a steady effort over the course of 3 or 4 years to get the strategy down that keeps our Heating and A/C cooling costs in check. It all starts with an air conditioning tune-up in the early Spring. This gets the heat pump ready for the large load of Summer while also ensuring top efficiency as well. From there, I just make sure the house is sealed up narrow to further the efficiency of the Heating and A/C equipment. But then, it absolutely comes down to simply keeping the control device setting in a range that is comfortable however never more than 15 degrees cooler than outside.
