I sort of hate the beginning of Summer and it’s literally now just weeks away.
But those four months of big time heat and humidity are part of the price you pay to live here.
I’ve had the HVAC professionals out to the house to do the air conditioning tune up. And my wife and I spent a couple of weekend afternoons putting a good seal on the house. So we’re ready. And as much as I don’t like the heat and all the air conditioning costs, the beginning of Summer does kick off the countdown to vacation. We have always taken two weeks at the end of Summer for family vacation. Now, the kids are grown mostly and we even have a new daughter in law. Still, we all gather at the same small beach town to enjoy the end of Summer family vacation. Now that the kids are grown, we choose to rent an entire house for the two weeks. This just makes more sense from just about every angle. There’s more room, we can make ourselves at home and there is always great air conditioning. There is nothing worse than being on vacation in some hotel room with commercial HVAC equipment that isn’t getting the job done. So that’s another reason we enjoy the house rental for vacation. I love the fact that there is a smart thermostat and zone controlled HVAC in the place we’ve been staying the last couple of years. Having a thermostat in our bedroom is such a treat for my wife and I. That’s because at home, we are cooling misers in order to keep the air conditioning costs down.
