In most years, I find myself dreading the arrival of Spring.
- The end of the year’s finest weather is still a bummer for me.
But that’s what happens in March when Spring finally gets going. The trees are greening up while several people are still shivering in the temperature that necessitates turning on the gas heating system or boiler. That means I won’t actually have to turn on the heat pump until the hot plus cold temperatures plus humidity reach an uncomfortable level. This year, I’ve got some new tricks up my sleeve when it comes to the air conditioner. In an effort to cut back on my reliance on the a/c, I’m always on the lookout for new cooling strategies plus pieces of advice. When the heat pump runs practically nonstop from June to September every year, you have no choice. However, I have two pieces of heating as well as air conditioning technology coming out this year that will completely change things around. First, I finally put in a programmable control unit! Compared to how I’ve been controlling the control device in the past, I expect to see savings of at least 10-15% thanks to this simple change. In addition, I’m busy keeping a close eye on that temperature control. This exemplifies the preciseness of the smart control unit. In addition, I have thrown in some motorized blinds. An increase in temperature due to peak solar heating will trigger the smart control device to enter deployment mode. This will substitute our haphazard application of solar shades in the past. Therefore, I feel I can save as much as 20% on my air conditioner bills compared to last summer.
