It’s quite possible this was a Summer of numerous firsts.
I know for sure it’s the first Summer that I have ever spent almost every day inside the Heating and A/C of our home.
Being inside the Heating and A/C cooling comfort is not unregular so much. It’s just that I normally am able to find the Heating and A/C comfort I seek in a variety of locations. Well not so much this year. With the pandemic raging, our business decided to commit to remote working until this was over. Working from condo had been an chance that the business was pushing due to the savings in overhead costs. However, the pandemic truly moved that consideration forward truly hastily. I made a bit of a condo office inside our house. My husbandy and I share a sort of condo office that I basically took over. She is an essential worker and didn’t use the condo office. Both of our companies greatly reduced our bonus structures. So it became imperative to save where both of us could. I decided that since I was at condo working, I would commit to saving on the Heating and A/C. All it really took was a bit of discipline and some fans. I decided to never let the inside temperature get any more than 15 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. Other than closing the drapes to stop direct sunshine heating, that’s all I did. However, I really stuck to it throughout the entire summer. And for those efforts, both of us saved over 20 percent on Heating and A/C cooling costs compared to the Summer before. It was well worth the effort and really, I got quite accustomed to the higher temps in our house.
