Two or three days ago, the control unit finally dipped down below 78, and that was my signal that fall was coming! I care about it when Fall gets here because the cooler weather is such a relief from the oppressive heat that weighs heavy on the southeast from February through November.
- Today, the control system app on my PC says it is 52 degrees, and I am enjoying it so much.
The control unit on the wall is slightly strange and declares that it is 58 degrees. I’m not going to quibble over several degrees. The important thing is that I get to turn off the air conditioner! Every year, everyone in our little corner of the world look forward to turning off the air conditioner and opening up the windows or doors. Today, that is what it looks care about at my house. The back door is open – flying critters never you mind – and the dog is happily running in and out. The window in the kitchen is open, and most importantly I am running neither the air conditioner nor the heater! That means a lower utility bill! Even though I live in a small site, my utility bill stays high. I rent this site, so of course the owner doesn’t pay for a state of the art Heating and A/C system. That means the air conditioner is less efficient than it might be in other sites, and that means the air conditioner bill is higher than normal. My neighbor who lives in a apartment about several times the size of this one has a lower electric bill than I do! She has a mini split air conditioner unit for the big back room of her house, and I recognize it is entirely efficient, and whisper quiet.
