Around here, the two of us hardly even refer to it as summer time as much as it’s simply heat season. This time of year is the part of the year where the Heating and Air Conditioning device entirely earns its keep. I suppose one of the reasons I call it heat season is that the heat doesn’t turn off when the adolescents go back to school. In our mind, that is when summer time has respectfully come to an end. But the a/c in this region continues on full blast throughout September in fact. There’s even some a/c happening by September some years. So while it’s still winter, I am already thinking about preparations for the heat season. Most of these preparations center around making sure that I can keep the Heating and Air Conditioning cooling costs down. If you go into heat season without any sort of plan, it will cost you an amount of currency that can be staggering. This happened to myself and others the first few years that I lived here. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Taking the time to be sure that there is a good seal on your beach house is entirely important and can save a ton on a/c costs. Additionally, it’s entirely important to call the Heating and Air Conditioning company as part of the prep. Getting an Heating and Air Conditioning professional to do the required Heating and Air Conditioning service on the heat pump prior to the summer time heat is imperative. Once that’s all done, it’s then a matter of programming the temperature control or making sure that you have good temperature control discipline. And getting a bit accustomed to the heat season prior to pouring on all that a/c is also a absolutely important step.
