Winter prep and the air conditioning

This is starting to get a bit toward the part of winter that I like.

The fact that we are over halfway through this winter makes me happy. February is still a brute there is no doubt about that. The gas furnace is still on much of the day and night. But we are nice and warm in our home just was we are every year. And I like to take a bit of pride in that to be honest. Being warm, cozy and not allowing the cost of HVAC heating to destroy the household budget doesn’t exactly happen by accident. There was plenty of preparation that went into having this sort of experience inside our house. And knowing that we are going to power through February is a great thought. Because after February, the worst of winter is pretty much behind us by then. There is still plenty of need for HVAC heating and such. That can happen all the way through April some years. However, when it’s time for the air conditioning, all we have to do is get the air conditioning tune-up from the HVAC technician. We know that’s all that needs to be done because the HVAC cabinet connected to the central air conditioning is the last thing I take care of. My winter preparations always end with me covering the HVAC cabinet with a special, molded plastic cover that fits right over it. Prior to that, I have put in plenty of hours sealing up and insulating the house as well as making sure the gas furnace gets serviced.
