The snow always causes problems

If there is one thing that I can’t stand about the weather up here in the north, it’s the winters.

I am not the type of person who is always longing to be down at the beach or anything even close to that, but I have never been the type of person that did very well when it was cold for months at a time.

Nearly every year when the winter approaches I find myself staying indoors where we have the luxury of radiant heated flooring. This seems like it would be fine in theory, but being cooped up indoors day in and day out leaves me feeling like a prisoner. I work from home as a freelance worker, so not feeling like you can take a break from the place you work is miserable. Recently we packed up and moved to a different house in a different part of town, and thanks to this move I have started to change my winter habits. We love nearly everything about our new house, but one thing that it is lacking is radiant flooring. Because we only have a small fireplace to keep us warm during the winters I am finding myself making trips to more places during my days. Partly because I feel the need to explore this new part of town, and the other part because I want to find somewhere with more warmth. I would have never imagined that moving away from our home with radiant flooring would actually benefit me in the long run, but I am very grateful that it did!

Overuse of air conditioner in dentist’s office makes for uncomfortable experience

This past week, I had an appointment with the dentist. Although I absolutely hate going to the dentist, I force myself to have my teeth cleaned and checked once per year. The whole experience is always awful. First I need to drive a half an hour to get to the office. Then I’m left sitting in the waiting room for a very long time. Once the appointment is finally completed, my teeth hurt and I’m stuck paying an enormous bill. This past visit to the dentist’s office was worse than usual. It was the middle of July and the outside temperature was in the high eighties and very humid. I dressed in shorts, tank top and sandals and ran the air conditioner in the car. I was forced to park a considerable distance from the building and was quite sweaty after the walk. I was anxious to get inside. However, the dentist’s office was freezing cold. The air conditioner was blasting so hard that I started to shiver. I switched chairs in the waiting room three times but couldn’t escape the cold air pouring from the vents. I was left sitting in the waiting room for over an hour. By the time I was invited into the back room, I was downright angry. Maybe if the dentist would be a little more conservative with the thermostat setting, he wouldn’t need to charge so much for his services. I noticed that the entire staff was dressed in long pants and sweaters. In the middle of the summer, I hadn’t expected to need to wear a jacket. I made sure to complain and was very anxious to leave.

Dehumidifier is absolutely necessary for comfort and energy savings

In the area where I live, the weather is hot and humid for the majority of the year.

  • It’s necessary to start up the air conditioner in early March and we typically keep it running until sometime in October.

The excessive moisture in the air can cause a lot of problems. Difficulty sleeping, headaches, nausea, fatigue and flu-like systems are all consequences of high humidity levels. Warm, moist environments are perfect for dust mites, centipedes, bacteria, mold and mildew growth. High humidity aggravates symptoms of allergies, asthma and dust sensitivities. It can cause wood furnishings, such as antiques and hardwood floors, to swell and warp. Plus, when the air is moist, it feels warmer and sticky. This leads to lower thermostat settings and puts greater wear and tear on the air conditioner. With the air conditioner working harder, it uses more energy and increases utility bills. Air conditioners are designed to create a cooling effect and not to combat humidity levels. Adjusting the thermostat might make the house feel cooler but won’t actually get rid of the excess moisture. While some people try to make do with portable dehumidifiers, these sometimes do more harm than good. If standing water is neglected, it can provide a source for bacteria to grow. Whole-house dehumidifiers install right into the air conditioner and require only annual maintenance. The dehumidifiers run almost silently and be adjusted to preference. Regulating moisture levels improves the health and comfort of the home and typically conserves enough energy to recover the purchase price. Living down south, a whole-house dehumidifier is as necessary as a central cooling system.

Our dog loves the cool air

We have a large dog, and he does not like the cooler temperatures that we’ve been experiencing.

Even though it’s fall here, it has been a super warm fall after a brutally warm summer. However, if you combine this with the fact that we’ve been experiencing drought weather too, then you can understand why our dog, who enjoys the cooler hot and cold temperatures, has been so sad. This is why we built him a shed this summer. In his shed, we put an air conditioning system through the wall. Now, he enjoys the air conditioning system. During the summer, without the air conditioning system running, he lays around all day looking like death. During the Winter season, it’s a completely unusual story, then he lays outside in the snow and has an absolute blast! Our dog can’t rest when the furnace is on, and he would never want to be stuck inside where he feels too warm and stuffy. However, the two of us can’t let him inside the house regardless if the furnace or the air conditioning system are on. He’s a sizable dog and can be accidentally destructive, which is why we built him a shed with a working air conditioning system. Ever since the two of us purchased the air conditioning system for the shed, I’ve noticed that he’s been much more active lately, and he seems healthier. In fact, the cooler I set the air conditioning system, the more relaxed that he seems to be. It would be a little better for our dog if the two of us lived somewhere north, where the two of us didn’t need an air conditioning system to stay cool. We love the furnace, and he loves the air conditioning.

I like the furnace and my dog likes the AC

I own a big pet dog, as well as he doesn’t enjoy the weather that we’ve been having, even though it is fall.

The temperature has been really warm for fall. It was a hot summer and if you combine this with the fact that we’ve experienced more than four weeks of drought weather, then you’ll know why my dog, who prefers chillier temperatures, has been completely miserable. This is why I built him a shed for the summer. In the shed, I put an air conditioning unit through the wall, because my pet enjoys the cool air during the summer months. Separate from air conditioning, my dog lays around all day looking like he’s going to die. During the winter months, it’s a completely different story, but he lays outside in the snow as well as has an absolute blast! He doesn’t like the furnaces, as well as he would never want to stay inside where it’s too warm as well as stuffy. However, we can’t let him inside either way, regardless if we have the air conditioning or furnace running. He’s much too big and can be really destructive accidentally. This is why I built him a shed with working air conditioning. Ever since I purchased the air conditioning system for him, I’ve observed that he’s been a lot happier lately, plus he looks much healthier. In fact, the chillier that I set the air conditioning, the more comfortable he seems to be. It would be better for my dog if we resided somewhere up North where we didn’t need any air conditioning to stay cool. I could have my furnace, as well as he could have an AC system.

My dog adores the cooler weather

I have a large dog, and he doesn’t adore the weather that we’ve been experiencing.

Even though it’s technically fall, it’s been cool after a long, hot summer. If you combine this with the fact that we’ve experienced four months of drought weather, then you’ll understand why my dog likes the cooler temperatures. He’s been completely angry, however that’s why I built him a shed for the summer. In his shed, I put an a/c unit through the wall. My dog adores the a/c. Without the a/c in the summer, he lays around all day looking pathetic. During the winter time, it’s a completely unusual story. He’ll just lay outside in the snow having an absolute blast! He can’t rest if it’s too hot, and he would never want to be trapped inside where it gets stuffy and hot. However, I can’t let him inside often, regardless if I have my furnace or the a/c running. He’s a big dog and destructive accidentally, so that’s why I’ve built him a shed with his own a/c. Ever since I bought the a/c unit for the shed, I’ve noticed that he’s been a lot more active lately and he’s much healthier. In fact, the lower I set the a/c, the more comfortable my dog seems to be. It would be better for him if I lived somewhere North, where the two of us didn’t need a/c to stay cool. I could just use a furnace, and he could be in the cooler air.

My dog loves the cooler temperatures

I have a big Native American dog, and she doesn’t love the weather that we’ve been experiencing.

  • Even though it’s fall, it has been an honestly warm fall after a warm summer.

If you combine this with the fact that the two of us have experienced various weeks of drought weather, then you can understand why my dog, who prefers the colder temperatures, is annoyed. This is why I built her a shed this summer. In her shed, I put a small air conditioner through the wall. She loves the air conditioner during the summer weather and without the air conditioner, she lays around the house and pouts. During the winter, it’s a completely different story. She’ll lay outside in the snow and have an absolute blast! She doesn’t like the furnace, and she’d never want to be trapped inside where she feels stuffy and too warm. However, the two of us can’t be inside anyway, regardless if the two of us have the furnace or our air conditioning running. She is a sizable dog and honestly destructive accidentally, so that’s why I’ve built her a shed with the air conditioner. Ever since I purchased the air conditioner for her, I’ve noticed that she has been a lot more active lately plus she looks healthier. In fact, the cooler that I set the air conditioner, the more comfortable that she appears to be. It would be better for her if the two of us lived up North where the two of us don’t need an air conditioner to stay cool! We’d love the furnace, but she loves the cooler air more.

My husband is helping us save tons of money

I truly love my husband so much.

He is one of those people who thinks through every step of every pick he has prior to making his final decision; I really care about him even though it used to drive his parents nuts.

I am exactly the opposite of him though. I seem to always do things quite brashly separate from thinking through the consequences of my decisions. I suppose both of us do a really good task of balancing each other out, but my hubby is unquestionably cautious as much as I am, however occasionally he is a little too cautious in our opinion! For example, we had the oil furnace took care of last week, and the Heating and Air Conditioning professional went on to say that the oil furnace was seasoned and that both of us might need a new one in the next five or six years. My hubby took that as both of us need a new oil furnace right now. Before we could blink he began looking for a new oil furnace, and he found numerous that he thought would be good for us. When he showed me the price, I just about fell out of our chair. I told him that both of us needed to wait to buy a new oil furnace until both of us really need one. He pondered the advice, and he did not buy one of those lavish oil furnaces. He ended up finding a brand new oil furnace at a garage sale for only $30. I could not believe that my eyeah when he walked in the cabin with a brand new oil furnace shouting the cheap price. I was actually super proud of him for saving us so much money, however now, both of us have a brand new oil furnace, and both of us still have some cash in the bank. My hubby is really an amazing man, and I never realized how good he is at finding amazing deals.
