I hear it all the time.
The newcomers to the space are just blown away by the heat of Summer.
And to their credit, it does indeed get actually sizzling hot here in the Summer. That’s something a person can for sure count on. It’ll be hot, humid as well as there will be the need for heating plus air conditioning cooling. Yet people modern to the space tend to panic a bit. They are accustomed to seeing Summertime rapidly adjusting temperatures in the Springtime. So they start cranking the a/c to Summer time levels. At least the sort of Summertime levels they are accustomed to. But that ends up becoming a bit of a vicious circle really. This is because by the time the Summer heat does land on us in late May or early July, those folks have temperature control settings that aren’t sustainable. For me, unsustainable temperature control settings are those that result in heating plus air conditioning cooling costs that resemble a daily vehicle payment. And that’s not a nice deal. After all, it makes going outside simply unbearable when you go from 71 degrees inside to nearly a hundred outside. And that’s no way to live a Summer. There is plenty of superb time outside of the peak heating hours to like all that is given out of doors in this region. The best thing to do is simply get accustomed to the temperature & the heat at the start of Springtime. Then, 69 degrees inside feels actually wonderful as well as you can still deal with going outside. Plus, the heating plus air conditioning costs are so incredibly more sufficient as well as so much more affordable than the alternative. I tell this to the newbies however they rarely listen.
