Like most people that move here from the north, I was jubilant over the fact that our winters would no longer be dominated by a gas oil furnace plus Heating, Ventilation & A/C heating.
Having spent my whole life love that, I totally went ridiculous when I moved to the south. I moved here in the fall plus other than getting the heating service done on the heat pump, I had no other Winter time preparations. And I was totally free to love the outdoors almost every single day. The Winter time here is full of sunshine plus crystal clear skies. So I dove right in plus spent that first Winter time doing outside activities at every possible opportunity. It was glorious. But love most most people else, when the Summer came around, I was a bit overwhelmed by the levels of the heat plus humidity. So of course, I leaned heavily on the Heating, Ventilation & A/C cooling to manage plus stayed inside more than I should have. I went from the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation & A/C of the office to the Heating, Ventilation & A/C cooling in my house. And I rarely appreciated going outside. Instead, I cranked the a/c plus paid a huge price. But I l received that there were two things that were easy to do that would make a huge change in how I dealt with Summer plus save me money. First, I waited a bit to start with the a/c to let myself acweather conditions to the heat a bit. Second, I started covering up the window in my lake house to stop the direct sunshine heating that was costing me a fortune. Now, I love getting outside early in the Summer plus I’m not paying so much for the a/c in my home.
