I live in the northeastern part of the country, where the weather is most often cold, wet plus windy.
Both of us deal with un-even temperatures down to twenty-several below zero, brutal wind chill plus feet of snow can fall overnight.
The furnace runs for approximately various months of the year, and central a/c isn’t a necessity. Both of us frequently suffer through chilly plus rainy summers. However, the people I was with and I also have seasons where the heat plus humidity are excruciating. For quite a few years, I was satisfied with window a/cs in the dining rooms. I liked opening plus windows plus welcoming in a fresh breeze. It made sense to air out the lake house after keeping it sealed slim during the fall plus winter. When it was time to update our furnace, the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company commanded upgrading to central a/c. He said that installing both units at the same time was best for peak efficiency. The only reason I was interested was because of a special offer from the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C supplier plus a rebate from the manufacturer. The cost of adding central a/c was negligible. The improvement to the comfort of the house has been immense. It is such a relief not to haul the window a/cs down from the attic every Spring. I don’t need to sacrifice the view from the windows plus every room in the lake house is perfectly cool. I tend to run the a/c even when the weather is mild. I use the fan to circulate the air. It works to filter out contaminants plus keep the lake house odoring fresh. Because of the a/c, I don’t need to disinfect as often plus there are fewer concerns with mold plus mildew growth.
