It’s closing in on midnite & it’s the first time that I’ve heard the gas furnace kick on… That’s a sure sign that my associate and I are leaning tough into Springtime… But when you live up here, it’s easy to get faked out by the first whiff of Springtime! And then, you get whacked in the teeth with a blast of arctic air & the gas furnace is running all afternoon again.

  • But signs like the gas furnace taking this long to certainly turn on makes me excited.

And I’m doubly happy this Springtime because I’m welcoming a heat pump to the mix. This will be the certainly first time we’ve had a/c in our household that didn’t come out of a window unit. This was a surprise for my partner; She has been making these comments about how much he would like to have central air to include some cooling comfort. And to his point, it does seem like our Summer weather is getting increasingly uncomfortable during the middle of the afternoon. Occasionally, it won’t even cool off in the evening. That has been sending me to bed early because my associate and I had a window a/c up there. But not this year, and i’ll be staying up late inside the central a/c of my study room enjoying the big cable this Summer. But more than anything, I have loved how happy my partner is for the a/c this Summer. The whole new thing also has a smart temperature control which he has gone online to research. I still can’t think he did that. But man, he is ready for that first bit of heat mixed with some humidity so he can bask in our first moments of crisp, cooling comfort.
