My wife really gives me a hard time these days when I say I’m cold. This was never the case when I was younger. I was always the one who wanted all the HVAC cooling he could get. Now in our early sixties, I’m stunned by the change of my body when it comes to temperature sensitivity. To that end, I’m so glad we ditched the gas furnace for the heat pump down here in the south. This was one of the best choices we ever made. Given the way I am about cold now, I don’t think I could have even survived another winter up north. The heat pump in our new place hardly even has to come on for heating in the winter. I do flip the thermostat over to heating about Thanksgiving but it might not come on for weeks. My wife, on the other hand, loves the winter here because the air conditioning is generally off. Heat season is from June through September and it is much tougher on her than it is on me. I’m grateful to have great HVAC cooling they comes from are new residential HVAC. but my wife really needs more HVAC than I do. It’s a bit of a balancing act for the both of us during the summer. I try to save on HVAC cooling costs and my wife wants more. But as this time of year rolls around, I’m the one whining about needing more heating. It seems the older I get, the thinner my blood is getting. It’s still in the seventies during the day here in October. But I’ve broken out a sweatshirt a few times already.
