I have lived up north for most of my life, and I was thrilled when I was given the chance to relocate to another place altogether! My boss said we were starting business down in the South and she wanted me to start working down there.
- She was providing me with housing and everything which I thought sounded nice.
The thing is, I didn’t really know anything about living in the South and I wasn’t sure what to expect; Well, when I got down there, our new home was very nice. It had a heat pump instead of a traditional central HVAC system. The heat pump is pretty interesting and I learned that it is energy efficient. As a matter of fact, people say this area of the country is home to the heat pump. I have been used to having several heating sources and usually a fireplace, however this new home was not equipped with anything like that. Evidently, the cooling method was the most important thing and that’s what you needed to maintain in order to survive some of the warmer weather conditions. Also, the humidity was something that I was not expecting, and fortunately as the heat pump works to push the heating energy out of the house, it also pushes out a lot of the humidity as well, which is very nice. I also have a dehumidifier which helps a superb deal. It’s just difficult for me to get used to the humidity levels when I’m going places. I do appreciate that the climate control at my new place of employment is superb and the air quality isn’t too bad.
