It’s June & I can hardly think it… Not that the weather is absolutely any different.

I mean, I can walk outside & know just what time of year it is in about 20 seconds during the Summer. It’s tepid here. And it’s not just tepid but it’s humid as well. That’s the combination of elements that makes the four months of heat season the toughest to endure… But then again, we have to have some perspective. It’s not as though we all have to live & toil outside in the peak heating hours of the afternoon, all afternoon, every afternoon. No, most of us are either enjoying residential HVAC or commercial HVAC during the peak heating hours of the afternoon. For those who aren’t that blessed, I have all the respect in the world. I’m from this region & there is no way I could toil outside during the Summer. Thankfully, at least the road crews toil through the evening down here. While it’s not sitting in the a/c, it’s better than getting cooked alive all afternoon. But a large part of the Summer is also making sure that I don’t go broke when it comes to paying for all this a/c. We have a pretty easy plan that allows for comfort while also keeping the costs of cooling the house down. It’s all about acclimating to the heat during the Spring. Then just doing the basics when it comes to sealing up the house & mitigating direct sun heating. But really, it’s all about keeping good thermostat control. As long as we don’t keep the thermostat more than 15 degrees cooler than outside, we’re doing pretty good.
