I don’t need to use a furnace to keep myself warm during the winter.
My entire family thinks I’m weird for not using a traditional heating and cooling system but I choose not to use a traditional heating and cooling system.
I used to use a central heating and AC unit all the time. I would run the air condition system all day throughout the summer months and heating system all day throughout winter months. You know what that got me? Really big HVAC bills. As you might imagine I wasn’t looking forward to having large Heating and cooling bills and so if I could find another way to avoid having to pay that much money for heating and a/c I was going to do so. And I did find a way. I found my way through window air conditioning systems and space heaters. I’m lucky enough to live in a fairly neutral climate that isn’t overly hot or overly cold and so I can get by with having a window AC in the summer to let it in enough air to cool the house down, and a space heater in the winter to heat up the room enough to where I don’t get cold. So sure, my family can think I’m strange for not using a traditional heating and cooling system but if it works well for me to save me money that I see no issue with, I plan to continue to do exactly what ‘s working for me.
