I’m not sure how we got so lucky to get the worst of winter and summer in this region.
But we do.
Our winters are long, cold and come with lots of snow and ice. Conversely, the summer is hot, humid with no Breeze at all. This makes for a really tough situation. The climate here is such that we hardly even see a traditional spring or fall. It’s like we just go from cold to hot to cold. This means that I have to be on my game when it comes to getting the most out of my HVAC. Dealing with such extreme means that if I don’t make sure that I am being as proactive as possible, the HVAC costs will break our budget. That means I have to do a few things that will ensure that I’m doing all I can to keep the HVAC costs to a minimum. Let’s face it, saving on the HVAC costs, whether winter or summer begins with the thermostat setting. Being disciplined with the HVAC thermostat is probably the most important part of any HVAC strategy. We program our thermostat in order to neither over heat or over cool the house in winter and summer. That’s the biggest part of the battle. Yet, making the house really tight is so important of winter and summer. This keeps the HVAC treated air inside the house and helps the HVAC equipment run at its most efficient. We all do our best to save the money where we can. But I can assure you saving on HVAC utility costs where we live is high on our priority list.
