Now that the colder months are behind me, I was expecting a break from high energy bills.
Typically, during the Spring, the temperature is so lovely that I don’t use my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C for heating or cooling.
In fact, during this time of year, when I switch from heating to cooling, the equipment barely runs because the temperature is constantly so pleasant outside. But to my surprise, this year, the Spring has been hotter than normal, so my Heating, Ventilation and A/C system has been running more than expected. This means that I won’t see much of a difference in my cooling bill. There might be a slight decrease because it does require more energy to heat a house than it does to cool it down. In the winter season months, the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system is working harder than it does during the Summer. But I’m not sure what will happen this year, since the equipment is already running this early because of the higher temperature outside. Not only that, however during the Spring I usually get my Heating, Ventilation and A/C equipment tested to get ready for the warmer months. However, this year, I skipped that step because the warmer weather came on so rapidly. So, my Heating, Ventilation and A/C system instantly went from heating to cooling. I can’t predict or change the weather, I can only make adjustments inside my home to make it more comfortable. And if that means running my Heating, Ventilation and A/C system earlier than expected then so be it. Instead of getting my Heating, Ventilation and A/C system tested now, I will just make the adjustment plus get it tested later this year in the Fall, then life is unpredictable and I just need to go with the flow.
