We will require much less air conditioning during the summer if we can learn to tolerate the heat
This year, I’m serious. When it comes to handling the cooling that we require in our homes, we’ll take a proactive approach. This spring and summer will be our fourth. We should acknowledge that it will be hot and muggy here. The best way to deal with that reality is not to hide inside a home or office’s air conditioning. In spite of not being locals originally, as a family we must accept the fact that we now call this place home. Therefore, we must act accordingly. We can’t continue to leave our air conditioner on full blast inside our house. I had to draw from my savings because my utility bills were so expensive. That simply doesn’t happen any more. For this reason, my wife, kids, and I put together a little bit of a family gathering. I explained my viewpoint and plan. First of all, even though it is peak heating time of the day, the temperatures are in the 80s, so we aren’t turning on the thermostat. As March 1 is rapidly approaching, those times are drawing near. We’ll adjust to the increasing temperatures and humidity levels rather than immediately turning on the air conditioning. Soon enough, the heat pump will be used to provide cooling both during the day and at night. We will require much less air conditioning during the summer if we can learn to tolerate the heat. And rather than being alarmed by the heat, we’ll begin acting like we live here. We’ll have air conditioning in our house, of course. But I just want everyone to work together to cut down on these absurd utility bills brought on by the summer’s nonstop air conditioning.
