Michael loves it when he wakes up, walks outside to get the paper and does not hear the chorus of heat pumps greeting him. This is the time of year when the heat pumps go silent. That is until it gets chilly, and almost everyone thinks the sky is falling and hits the control unit, but even those chilly evenings are rare. Michael has been awfully satisfied to wake up and flip the control unit over the heating to knock the chill out of the beach house. This year, he’s loving the holidays all that much more with the fond memories of all the money he saved on AC costs last summer. This of course is when the heat pump gets after it. While it’s quiet in the winter, the heat pump is alive and kicking all the time providing cooling to the beach house for months on end. For the longest time, I sort of just leaned into the AC because that was the toughest thing to get used to when Michael moved down here. He just had never experienced that kind of heat. But that also comes with a price when it comes to all those cooling expenses. So this year, Michael committed to a strategy that he found out from the Heating, Ventilation and A/C business. All he did was go on the Heating, Ventilation and A/C expert’s website to learn how to save utility on costs when it came to cooling his beach house. Michael followed all the instructions and ended up saving so much money the year before.
