A few days ago, the control unit finally dipped down below 69, and that was my signal that fall was coming… I love it when Autumn gets here because the cooler weather is such a relief from the oppressive heat that weighs heavy on the south from February through September; This week, the control unit app on my phone that says it is 52 degrees, and I am enjoying it so much. The control system on the wall is slightly different and declares that it is 54 degrees. I’m not going to quibble over several degrees. The important thing is that I get to turn off the air conditioning! Every year, pretty much everyone in our little corner of the world look forward to turning off the air conditioning and opening up the windows or doors. This week, that is what it looks just like my house. The back door is open – flying critters never you mind – and the pet is happily trotting in and out. The window in the home office is open, and most importantly I am running neither the air conditioning nor the heater! That means a lower utility bill! Even though I live in a small locale, my utility bill stays high. I rent this locale, so naturally the owner doesn’t pay for a top-of-the-line Heating and A/C system. That means the air conditioning is less efficient than it might be in other locales, and that means the air conditioning bill is higher than ideal; My neighbor who lives in a house about 3 times the size of this one has a lower electric bill than I do! She has a mini chop air conditioning unit for the sizable back room of her house, and I think it is honestly efficient, and whisper quiet.
