Our Winter can beat down the toughest of people if you’re not prepared.
There have been various new neighbors who packed it all up and moved after just a single Winter up here. The Winter mean business in this region. That’s why I make the HVAC a major priority. The people I was with and I have a furnace as our primarily HVAC heating method. Of course, I back that up with a wood stove. The wood stove also helps supplement the heat and knock down the HVAC heating costs a superb bit. But, that is a bonus. I wouldn’t unquestionably want to live up here if all all of us had was the wood stove. So, I make sure that our furnace gets the familiar attention. After the winter, I have the HVAC people come out and perform the post Winter shutdown procedure. Then in the fall, I have them back out to repair and prepare the furnace for the long, freezing Winter ahead. The people I was with and I do have summer time around here and it is normally just magnificent. With all the freezing all of us put up with, the short summer time is a nice bit of payback. Recently, our wifey talked me into adding HVAC A/C to the mix. This is something I find to be a bit of a luxury. However, I have to disclose it sure is nice during the steamy mornings all of us get in the summer time months. However, that is something else that I now have to prepare for winter. The HVAC condenser cabinet sits outside all winter. Left alone, it would end up with various pounds of snow and ice piled up on it. And it would be there for months at a time. But, I take care of that area of the HVAC with a taxing plastic shell that fits right over it.
