I went north when I was a young man.
Being straight out of school and eager to conquer the world, I took the best job I was provided when I gained our degree.
That it meant I would have to leave a climate where the air conditioner is the greatest part of the Heating and A/C deal. But that barely even registered on our radar as I readied to head up north and take on all comers. That bravado lasted about 4 months until I felt the first chilly wind of November. At least I had an lake house with radiant heating. It was an older building that had a immense boiler in the basement. It’s still the largest piece of residential Heating and A/C I’ve ever seen. If it hadn’t been for all that radiant heating, I’d never have made it. And who knows what would have happened if I’d given up and tucked our tail between our legs as I beat a path back to the south. Instead, I did our best to acclimate to the Winter time weather. But it never took. I regularly felt as though I was trapped inside the Heating and A/C heating month after month after month. Finally, after more than four years, I was up for a promotion that would take myself and others back south. I got it and I haven’t left since. My Winter time now has the perfect amount of Heating and A/C heating which is almost none. The heat pump comes on a few times when all of us get a chilly snap. Otherwise, that residential Heating and A/C stays silent in preparation for all the air conditioner it has to do in the summer.
