Like most people that transport here from the north, I was jubilant over the fact that our winters would no longer be dominated by a gas furnace and Heating, Ventilation and A/C heating.
- Having spent my whole life care about that, I totally went crazy when I moved to the south.
I moved here in the fall and other than getting the heating repair done on the heat pump, I had no other Winter preparations. And I was totally free to care about the outdoors almost every single day. The Winter here is full of sunshine and crystal clear skies. So I parakeet right in and spent that first Winter doing outside activities at every possible opportunity. It was glorious. But care about most everyone else, when the summer time came around, I was a bit overwhelmed by the levels of the heat and humidity. So of course, I leaned heavily on the Heating, Ventilation and A/C cooling to manage and stayed inside more than I should have. I went from the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation and A/C of the office to the Heating, Ventilation and A/C cooling in my house. And I rarely loved going outside. Instead, I cranked the a/c and paid a large price. But I l gained that there were two things that were easy to do that would make a large change in how I dealt with summer time and 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 home to stop the direct sun heating that was costing me a fortune. Now, I care about getting outside early in the summer time and I’m not paying so much for the a/c in my home.
