At this time of year, the weather is absolutely unpredictable.
After dealing with hot plus cold temperatures in the forties plus running the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C program on heating mode for various months, the outdoor conditions quickly warmed up. Both of us had a week of hot plus cold temperatures in the eighties, necessitating the switch to air conditioning. I thought the two of us were done with the freezing weather; Unfortunately, the conditions keep changing from a single day to the next. We’ll appreciate a couple of mornings of gorgeous weather with dire heat plus then various mornings of freezing plus rain. I have a packaged unit that provides both heating plus cooling capacity. Changing from heating to cooling mode is as self-explanatory as pushing a button on the control unit. However, it just seems wrong to spend money to pump freezing air into the apartment a single plus invest in heating the next. I keep trying to go without heating or cooling until the weather straightens out. Both of us are headed toward summer, plus I guess the freezing conditions won’t last, then last evening, I just about froze to death. I refused to start up the heating system. Instead, I bundled up in hot blankets. This afternoon, when I checked the control unit, I saw that the temperature in the apartment was 60 degrees. I was tired of shivering plus turned up the control unit setting. The heating program is now blasting heat from the vents. It feels appealing. I checked the weather forecast plus saw that the outside temperature will climb back up into the eighties tomorrow. I’ll open the windows plus hope for a breeze but honestly end up running the a/c. I am not looking forward to getting my monthly electric bill. Paying for both heating plus cooling is going to add up.
