I’m watching as my region of the country is going through that annual rebirth process that I love.
For sure, I really enjoy having such a mild winter and I’m sad to see that end.
But we also get this gorgeous Spring prior to the brutal heat and humidity of the coming Summer. However, the temperatures are rising and I’m hearing a few heat pumps kick on with this year’s first bit of air conditioning. That’s something that I’m looking to change up a bit when it comes to dealing with the climate here. I’ve been down here for more than a decade now and it’s time that I start acting like it when it comes to the climate. I’m done being that guy who is scurrying from one the commercial HVAC of the office to the central air conditioning at home. I’ve decided that I’m not spending my entire summer inside the air conditioning this year. Where I live is beautiful with plenty to do outside. But since I’ve been here, I pretty much stay inside the cooling comfort of the residential HVAC all Summer. That’s going to change and I’m going to save on air conditioning costs as well. It’s a pretty simple plan really. I’m just not going to reach for the thermostat until much deeper into the Spring. I sort of want to lean into getting more accustomed to the climate here. Granted, you don’t want to be outside during the peak heating hours of the summer. That’s a time of day where being inside the central air conditioning of home or the commercial HVAC of the office is a good idea. But I want to get more comfortable with higher temperatures simply so I can get outside in the morning or after I get home from work.
