It’s quite possible this was a Summer of many firsts.
I guess for sure it’s the first Summer that I have ever spent almost every day inside the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C of my home.
Being inside the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C cooling comfort is not bizarre so much. It’s just that I normally am able to find the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C comfort I seek in a variety of locations. Well not so much this year. With the pandemic raging, my supplier decided to commit to remote working until this was over. Working from house had been an option that the supplier was pushing due to the savings in overhead costs. However, the pandemic entirely moved that consideration forward particularly abruptly. I made a bit of a house office inside my house. My wifey plus I share a sort of house office that I basically took over. She is an essential worker plus didn’t use the house office. Both of our companies greatly reduced our bonus structures. So it became imperative to save where all of us could. I decided that since I was at house working, I would commit to saving on the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C. All it really took was a bit of discipline plus 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 sunlight heating, that’s all I did. However, I really stuck to it throughout the entire summer. And for those efforts, all of us saved over 20 percent on Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C cooling costs compared to the Summer before. It was well worth the effort plus really, I got quite accustomed to the higher temps in my house.
