I live in the northeastern area of the country, and our Winter time weather is just horrible, by the end of October the outside temperature is correctly below freezing with several feet of snow on the ground. The two of us correctly have blizzard conditions by Christmas, with the temperature dropping below zero. We’re forced to hide inside the house with the gas furnace running for numerous straight months. The air in the house becomes so dry and stale, I’ve been forced to invest in a humidifier. This year, I’m hoping to avoid a pale white Christmas. I system to travel to a location with palm trees, pale white sand and sunshine. I want to swim in the ocean, worry about sunburn, and appreciate air conditioning. I would much rather deal with intense heat and humidity, than sub zero rapidly decreasing temperatures, brutal wind chill and snow. I’m looking forward to lying in the sand and relaxing, instead of bundling up in a wool coat and shovel snow. I am exhausted of relying on the gas furnace and paying enormous energy bills every month. Every fall, I schedule a licensed Heating, Ventilation, and A/C company to inspect, clean and tune all the components of the oil furnace. I need to take off task to meet the company, and then spend several hours monitoring his progress. I pay for this service, even though the gas furnace is really working just fine. Because the Winter time workload is so demanding and long, and puts such excessive strain on the heater, I need to take proactive measures. I also change the air filter every month without fail, and my weekly heating bills are still excessive.
