He’s gone entire winters without needing any heat

Since Mark has been down south now for about eight years, he’s learned a bit about managing the toughest time of the year when it comes to weather conditions.

Gladly, the heat pump doesn’t get called upon for heating often at all during the Winter. In fact, Mark has gone entire winter seasons without ever switching the temperature control over to heating. Basically, if he wakes up to a frigid lake house, Mark just turns on the space heater. But then comes Summer. From about now, mid May, through July and into September, he must deal with serious heat. The first Summer Mark was here, he didn’t know anything more than immersing himself in air conditioning. But he also took a beating financially by going with this approach. That’s led him to learn just what he can do to prevent that sort of spending for cooling his lake house. And over the years, Mark has the basics handled. First, it’s an air conditioning tune up from the Heating and A/C business. Then, it’s sealing up the lake house. Like, substitute worn weather stripping around doors and seal up any and all gaps Mark finds inside and on the exterior of the house. Pulling the drapes to stop direct sunlight heating and having some discipline with the temperature control round out the basics. So now, he is looking at the little things that end up driving the AC demand. This Summer, Mark is not going to use the stove or the oven for cooking. This heats up the house. So it’s either the grill or the air fryer for cooking during the hot season.
