Doing without Heating plus A/C is not something that is easy to picture. That’s essentially due to the fact that I live in a region where the weather can be especially hot for much of the year. In the warm season, the heat gets to be extremely tough. But, I have actually pondered just what it would have been like here in the past. That’s when they used things such as evaporative coolers plus fans alone to battle this sort of heat plus humidity. It’s just something that is totally foreign to me plus most others as we have always known the Heating plus A/C heat pump. However, a good amount of people have used those former methods to help cool off their properties. I got to thinking about it because I end up spending so much cash on the Heating plus A/C cooling while in the worst of the heat. The Heating plus A/C equipment is a necessity but, I’m actually tired of it killing our budget for nearly half the year. I don’t think going to an evaporative cooler plus fans is the answer to our issues. However, there is a middle ground for sure. That middle ground is simply paying attention to some details in order to reign in the cost of the Heating plus A/C equipment. The first thing I had to do was get some Heating plus A/C setting discipline. Without that, there really is no significant savings. The best solution I could figure out was to allow the property to heat up a bit while in the peak heat of the day. Then maintain a temperature that is 15 degrees cooler than it is outside. I did that along with pulling the drapes plus swapping out the weather stripping. And I was actually amazed to have saved roughly 15 percent on the Heating plus A/C costs.
