I’m so glad to wake up, walk outside to get the paper and not hear the chorus of heat pumps greeting me.
This is the time of year when the heat pump is nice and quiet.
That is until we get the least bit of a cold snap and everyone thinks the sky is falling and hits the thermostat. But even those cold snaps are rare. But still, I’ve been awfully pleased to wake up and flip the thermostat over the heating to knock the chill out of the house. This year I’m enjoying Christmas all that much more with the fond memories of all the money I saved on air conditioning costs last summer. This of course is when the heat pump really gets after it. While it’s quiet in the winter, the heat pump is alive and kicking day and night providing cooling to the house for months on end. For the longest time, I sort of just leaned into the air conditioning because that was the toughest thing to get used to when we moved down here. I just had never experienced that kind of heat. But that also comes with a price when it comes to all those cooling costs. So this year, I committed to a strategy that I learned from the HVAC company. All I did was go on the HVAC company website to learn all I needed to know about how to save utility on costs when it came to cooling a home. I followed all the instructions and ended up saving nearly twenty percent over the year before.
