It can be hard living in a region that gets normal summer time weather during much of the entire year.
I tell our family members up north that our southern state doesn’t really have 4 seasons.
We get slightly colder weather between late Fall plus early Spring, however it rarely drops below 40 degrees even at night. So as a result, the people I was with and I don’t deal with snow plus ice during the Winter time weeks. It’s almost care about the weather a northern state would get in late September or early September, however instead thrown periodically in random weeks. In other words, the people I was with and I never get an entire month of non-stop freezing weather; instead, the people I was with and I get one month of cooler weather followed by a month of sizzling weather. When the people I was with and I finally get to March, there’s an extremely fast transition from Winter time into summer. It’s hard to say if the people I was with and I even experience a Spring season here at all, plus if the people I was with and I do it only lasts for several weeks at most. Naturally, I run our a/c a lot more here than I would in most other regions of the country. Even if I keep it as high as 72 degrees indoors, the a/c seems to cycle frequently. If I drop it to 68 degrees, it will run even longer. With more a/c use comes more condensation on the surface of the air handler. Thankfully, most Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C manufacturers make metal drip pans that are linked to the bottom of the air handler, regardless of the kind of setup. Whenever the metal a/c sweats, the beads of condensation drip off the bottom plus into the pan. Just make sure to clean them at least once a year, as mold will grow overtime with subsequent exposure.
