It’s time for the heat and humidity of summer again.
As much as I’d like to skip the next four months, that’s just not how it works.
Living in this region is just wonderful for 8 months of the year. Summer is the trade off and it comes with plenty of HVAC cooling. This time each year was just painful for me because I knew the air conditioning was going to really get going. That meant that the price of all that air conditioning would just continue to go up. And that’s what sort of adds insult to injury when it comes to dealing with the heat. Not only do I have to sweat it out for four months, I have had to pay a bunch of money for the privilege. Not this year. For once, I’m ready for the summer. I called the HVAC professionals in the spring to get the air conditioning tune-up done early. We also cut down on the amount of HVAC cooling this spring. I started out with putting the thermostat in the upper 70’s for the afternoon. This way, we got a bit more accustomed to the house being warmer during the day. I also sealed up the house to maximize the efficiency of the heat pump. We now have solar shades to stop the direct sunlight heating as well. But it’s the thermostat setting that’s going to really make the difference. For the summer, I’m setting the thermostat at 82 during the day. And at night, we’ll bring it down to 75 for a cool nights sleep.
