During the winter months, it is cold and frigid.
We rarely have snow in this part of the state, but I can go skiing anytime I want by traveling 2 hours north.
There are about a dozen ski resorts in the mountain range and the elevation is around 5500 ft. The cold winter temperatures are a nice break from the summer, when we have to run the AC every single day. Warm temperatures usually begin in April and they last until october. We have a very long summer season in this neck of the woods. Before the summer season, I always make sure to have a full system tune-up performed on my AC unit. I call a company in the city that has flexible and convenient appointment scheduling and service 24 hours a day. The company doesn’t even charge anything for emergency after hours services. They offer a comprehensive maintenance special that includes all of the electrical and mechanical parts of the HVAC unit. Lately, the outdoor temperatures have been really nice and it has not been necessary to turn on the AC every single day. It’s only been around 75° and that is a totally comfortable temperature, and especially in june. Last year, it was 105 degrees at this time of the year and I like the break from the heat and humidity. My air conditioner likes the break too. The outdoor times have been really nice for the AC unit. I had to turn it on a couple of times last week, but I haven’t had to turn it on at all this week.
