We are wrapping up another summer time in this part of the world and that thing you hear is a collective sigh. Most folks in this region are pretty content when the calendar turns to October because that generally means the deep heat is over. And with it, the HVAC cooling becomes less and less prevalent. I think people whose homes are so air conditioned that the central HVAC is running non-stop. But these are the same people who tend to hide from the heat all summer. By and large, those folks are also not native to the space or haven’t been around here all that long. Most people I think aren’t willing to pay the equivalent of a nice, new motorcar payment each month just for HVAC cooling. But trust me, there are several people who do just this. I find that it’s a shame and a waste of resources. I think that people should have the freedom to do whatever they want to do with their air conditioning system. It’s just a bit wasteful and hard on the HVAC component to have it running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Honestly, it doesn’t even have to be this way if you just accept the heat. The more you try to avoid the heat with the air conditioning system, the more overpriced it is and the waste of resources goes way up. All it takes is not turning on the air conditioning system in the springtime immediately. Simply acclimating a bit to warmer temperatures in the home allows for an absolutely sensible temperature control setting throughout the summer.
