I honestly don’t mind the heat during the Summer.
- The older I get, the less the heat bothers me.
I’m not sure just exactly why that is but that seems to be the case. But it’s not like I’m disconnecting the heat pump either. It’s now May which is essentially the last call for great temperatures for like four months once June rolls around. I haven’t had the air conditioning on but a handful of times thus far this Spring. But there are days where the temperatures get up there during the peak heating hours of the day. And if I’m not inside the commercial HVAC at work, then I might pop on the air conditioning for a bit just to cool off the house a little. Soon though, the air conditioning will be on and the house will be sealed up for the Summer. I keep a good seal on the house in order to maximize the efficiency of the heat pump. Pulling the curtains during the day is also essential when it comes to reducing cooling costs. Direct sunlight heating is a big deal here in the Summer so I make sure the solar shades are down every day. But the air conditioning is going to be on all Summer because the humidity will begin to rise and combine with the heat. That can be a miserable combination. Thankfully, the heat pump is balancing the humidity and moisture level as the air conditioning is on. That’s a wonderful thing because the cooling air inside my house feels crisp and dry. And the humidity balancing also reduces the chance of mold and mildew as well.
