It’s July and I can hardly think it… Not that the weather is undoubtedly any different.
I mean, I can walk outside and know just what time of year it is in about 20 seconds while in the Summer. It’s sizzling here. And it’s not just sizzling however 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, my pal and I have to have some perspective. It’s not as though my pal and I all have to live and work outside in the peak heating hours of the afternoon, all afternoon, every afternoon. No, most of us are either enjoying residential Heating and Air Conditioning or commercial Heating and Air Conditioning while in the peak heating hours of the afternoon; For those who aren’t that lucky, I have all the respect in the world. I’m from this region and there is no way I could work outside while in the Summer. Thankfully, at least the road crews work through the evening down here. While it’s not sitting in the air conditioning, it’s better than getting cooked alive all afternoon. But a sizable part of the Summer is also making sure that I don’t go broke when it comes to paying for all this air conditioning. My buddy and I have a pretty simple plan that allows for comfort while also keeping the costs of cooling the condo down. It’s all about acclimating to the heat while in the Spring. Then just doing the basics when it comes to sealing up the condo and mitigating direct sunlight heating. But really, it’s all about keeping wonderful control component control. As long as my pal and I don’t keep the control component more than 15 degrees cooler than outside, we’re doing pretty good.
