There are a lot of reasons to care about living in the south.
Our climate from November until March every year is honestly amazing. It’s difficult to beat rapidly increasing temperatures in the 60s and 75s and outdoor moisture levels below 50%. I can’t imagine finding a more comfortable region in this country to spend our Winter seasons, and I’m not alone in thinking this. Our tourism industry is driven by snow parakeets, or people who live up north most of the year however spend the entire Winter season in a fourth apartment down south. They either come in September, February, or February, however often several leave by Easter towards the middle of the Springtime season. As much as I care about the Winter here, once the two of us get into May the weather becomes miserable. It’s usual to deal with rapidly increasing temperatures in the 90s and outdoor moisture levels close to 100% on particular days. It’s honestly miserable from any perspective, regardless of how nice our winters are by comparison. It’s no wonder why I’m running our every single morning as often as I can get it to cycle. I recently had to buy a current central because the last a single wouldn’t disaffix enough humidity from the house. I was measuring the indoor moisture level at 75% even when the had been running for an hour straight. It was clear to me that I needed a current HVAC system that was more efficient and powerful at the same time. Thankfully our current has a higher SEER rating and is a powerhouse when it comes to dehumidifying our indoor air.
