So far, this Summer has been overcast, rainy & humid, however there’s been actually few sunny afternoons, and after an seriously long Winter with sub zero temperatures, bitter wind chill & record-setting amounts of snow, I was absolutely looking forward to shutting down the gas furnace & opening some windows; I was sad to air out the house, get outside & breathe some fresh air.
Instead, it’s been necessary to keep the windows shut against torrential downpours.
It’s been nearly impossible to find an occasion to mow the lawn. The house started to feel terribly stuffy & clammy. There was condensation running down the windows & continual complications with mold & mildew. I finally had enough of it. The Summer was turning into torture. I called around & found a local Heating & Air Conditioning supplier that offers free estimates & had immediate availability. I wanted central air conditioning installed right away, then since I already have the ductwork to supply the gas furnace, the project wasn’t overly involved or invasive. It was fairly costly because I decided to treat my family to a top-of-the-line model. I invested into all of the most advanced & energy saving features, including zoned control, adjustable speed compressor & wireless connectivity. The cooling system automatically adjusts its speed to the demands of the house, senses complications with humidity, runs quietly & is able to target the temperature in particular rooms, but while the Summer is still a giant disappointment, at least the house is cold & comfortable. The air filtration & fan keep the media air cleaner & healthierâ€¦ Because I chose an Energy Star rated model, the electrical bills are adequate.
