I absolutely have loved not having to worry with the thermostat for the least few weeks, and i know that’s not the case in most of the rest of the country, and there are millions of people who are focusing on the thermostat this time of year in order to minimize heating costsâ€¦ And if I had a gas oil furnace running evening and day, I’d be doing the same, but for me, the Winter time means I can stop watching the thermostat, and every one of us need next to no heating help during the winter. In fact, I generally just flip the heat pump off. There might be a few afternoons where it’s a bit cool in the home and that is what space gas furnaces are for, however, I know that I will soon have to get back in the habit of paying attention to the thermostat and the Heating as well as Air Conditioning equipment. Before long, there will be a demand for cooling and it won’t stop for another 7 or many weeks. So it’s absolutely important for me to get my great air conditioner habits back as suddenly as possible. That starts with resisting the urge to flip on the air conditioner and leave it on. Sure, there are a few Springtime afternoons and evenings where a bit of cooling is necessary. But by and large, I love to leave off the air conditioner as long as possible. I also love to get in the habit of closing the solar shades before I go to work. This stops the direct sunlight heating which will totally rob the heat pump of efficiency. And there is one other great habit that I will follow as well. I’ll be calling the Heating as well as Air Conditioning company to get the air conditioner tune up done in the next month or so.
