Trust me, HVAC cooling is the least of our worries in this house. For one, we live so far north that we’re almost in Canada. That means our summers are normally very nice. Sure, it gets warm during the day and sometimes even a bit hot. But it’s never been enough for us to have an air conditioner. My wife and I have been in this house for 35 years and not once have we had HVAC cooling. Well that is until now. My wife has slowed down considerably and spends a lot of her day inside the house. She has been after me for air conditioning for years now. So this past year we added central air conditioning to the HVAC in our home. I have to say that it does a great job and is far more efficient than I thought it would be. Paying a bunch for HVAC cooling was not something I wanted to do. I spend enough money just heating this house during our winters. And those winters are long, cold and heating costs are expensive. That’s why I was very pleased when I got the first electric bill after we started with the air conditioning. It really didn’t jack the bill up all that much. Along with the air conditioner, I also bought a cover for the new HVAC cabinet outside. With our winters, I sure don’t want the weight of all that snow and ice sitting on the HVAC equipment. And who knows when one of those huge icicles will break loose and hit the HVAC as well. All in all, I’m please with the addition of the air conditioning.
