There is certainly no doubt that when it comes to weather and temperature concerns around this area, the conversation will ultimately be about the heat.
Our heat season is pretty long.
But the warm season months are especially intense. There’s honestly no way around it. This section will be scorching for a very long while. Thankfully, every one of us have the HVAC heat pump to mitigate the effects of the heat at least in our dwellings. However, there is a pretty serious cost that comes along with HVAC cooling. And left unworked on, it can end up being particularly overpriced. Our dwelling is off in the woods and this is our second year in it. The group of us went without window coverings last year because every one of us were able to. There were no neighbors or anything quite like that so every one of us made the move to go with uncovered windows. That was a pretty huge mistake. The direct sun heating from having all those windows uncovered certainly cost us. It’s the most expensive HVAC bill I have ever had in my life. And I’m a native to this region. So this year, every one of us made the choice to hit back at the tremendous cost of HVAC cooling with a 2 pronged strategy. First, every one of us installed a smart temperature control which will easily manage the HVAC output. Also, every one of us had automatic sun shades installed on all the windows. The beauty about this is the fact that the smart temperature control syncs up with the sun shades and is able to close and open them as needed. I suppose this will save us a small fortune in HVAC costs this coming hot season.
