Are you the type of guy who prefers to use the heating & cooling plan every morning of the year? There are a lot of people who do like that. They simply set the thermostat on their preferred setting & leave it there all year long. In the summer, the cooling system keeps the thermostat setting right, & in the winter, the heating system kicks in to keep the condo at that setting. I am not that type of man. Because I live in the south, the a/c is on for much of the year out of necessity, so I look forward to the fall each year. When the cooler weather comes in, I get excited because I can shut off the cooling system, open the windows, & let the condo get fresh. I try not to turn on the heating system immediately; in fact, if I can get through the whole Winter time without using heating, that is what I try to do. I don’t like forced air heating, as the dry air gives me sinus trouble & wreaks havoc with our skin & gives me chapped lips. I have a little portable heating system that I sometimes plug in just to have a little spot that is warmer, however I think in the long run those portable oil heating systems aren’t all that efficient. If I can get away with it, & the Winter time is mild, I choose to do the best thing – curl up under a blanket, take overheated showers thanks to the water heater, & wear some sweats! When summer time comes back around, though, I gotta turn the cooling system back on!
