It’s heat season because from June through September, the temps stay close to the century mark day after day.
It’s quite a change but one that we are leaning into more and more. When my wife got the opportunity to head up a regional office, it was exciting. That woman has dedicated so much of her energy and passion to her job. She spends a ton of time inside the zone controlled HVAC of her office to be sure things are just the way they need to be. I mean she has been so dedicated to that company for nearly 15 years. So this promotion was something that would cement her place in management. It was a no brainer. However, the new job came with relocating. It’s not that big a deal for me as I’m a freelance writer and editor to all I need is the internet. Still, moving from where I had always lived, outside of my time in college, was different. But honestly, I was sick of being stuck inside the HVAC heating all winter. Plus, the snow and ice were no longer as cool as I thought they were when I was younger. My wife took the job and we are now learning all about what heat season is like. That’s what our neighbor calls summer and she’s right. It’s heat season because from June through September, the temps stay close to the century mark day after day. While we are definitely adjusting to the heat, we are so glad to have a new heat pump with such a great SEER rating. And we’re trying to adjust to the heat a bit at a time. For the back half of heat season, we’re keeping the thermostat in the upper 70’s because it saves money and it allows us to acclimate to the climate better.
