It’s a weird feeling that I noticed I was having this morning.
It’s a Saturday in mid May so the heat is not quite at mid Summer strength.
Still, even our air conditioning has been kicking on some during the peak heating hours of the day. And our thermostat is set high. We’re from this part of the country so when it starts getting hot and humid, we tend to just roll with it. However, there are plenty of people who live in our community who go right for the cooling side of the thermostat in like March. I’d be very afraid to see their cooling costs come August. For us, we just don’t want to spend the equivalent of a new car payment just for cooling the house. Plus, getting acclimated to the heat makes it easier to enjoy being outside. So as I walked out about 11 this morning to get the mail, I noticed an HVAC company van across the street. And the technician was elbow deep in the HVAC cabinet alongside the house. This neighbor is one who will gladly tell you just what a scam he thinks HVAC maintenance actually is. He came down here from up north just a couple of years ago. The old neighbor took great care of that HVAC unit. So he inherited a well maintained HVAC system. But I guess he’s learning now that HVAC maintenance is pretty much essential as is an HVAC professional. Looks like this is going to be a pretty expensive lesson as the HVAC technician is still working on it and it’s now nearly 4 in the afternoon.
