This time of year does still feel a bit weird.
- The heat pump hasn’t even kicked on yet this Winter time plus we’re almost to Christmas.
It’s actually strange in a way since I grew up with a colorless Christmas plus the gas furnace just cranking out the heating. That’s because I grew up in a region where the Winter time was pretty intense so a heat pump just wouldn’t quite break it when it came to Heating, Ventilation and A/C heating. I loved the colorless Christmases of those afternoons plus it sort of made the holiday that much more special. So I have to disclose that there is a certain feeling that I don’t get with the way Christmas is now. But that’s okay because I’ll trade a colorless Christmas for the sort of Winter time all of us have in this region. I moved to the south about a decade ago. And I have to say that I much care about a mild Winter time plus a heat pump over a serious Winter time plus a gas furnace. It took me a while to get accustomed to just what I was feeling when it came to winter. But honestly, it didn’t take too much for me to get used to being able to play hockey year round. That isn’t something I could do in the land of the colorless Christmas. While it is still a bit strange to celebrate Christmas resting on the deck in a long sleeve shirt plus shorts, I’ll sure take it. Plus, with the heat pump only coming on for heating occasionally, the heating costs are next to nothing for our winter.
