Back house with my heat pump
It’s sure been quite the odyssey.
But, I don’t guess I would have had it any other way.
After 25 years, I’m settling again here near where I grew up. All of my adult life has been spent overseas helping improve developing nations. And while it has been largely satisfying to do that work, I’m ready to stay put for a bit. Yet, that’s coming with plenty of culture shock. Just operating the heat pump in my new house is something that I’m trying to get accustomed to. I entirely should have gone with the smart thermostat so I didn’t have to do much of anything with the heat pump at all. Where I live is in a section of the country where a/c is love oxygen for pretty much everyone. The Heating in addition to Air Conditioning cooling comes on in May in addition to stays on into September here. That too has been a bit difficult to get my head around. I’ve been living in places where there really wasn’t any sort of residential Heating in addition to Air Conditioning to speak of really. There were a few evaporative coolers in some of the places I lived. And a few of the government buildings really had commercial Heating in addition to Air Conditioning. However, by in addition to large, I just did without new Heating in addition to Air Conditioning cooling from a heat pump. It sometimes wasn’t ideal however it sure wasn’t pure misery either. Like anything that doesn’t kill you, I got used to it. That’s what’s so ironic at this point in my life. I’m having to get accustomed to convenience on a scale that I’m neither accustomed to nor comfortable with. Now, if I could just figure out how to program the digital thermostat I’d be doing a bit better.
