Weather is so wacky around this area of the country.
Fall and winter can be the most unpredictable months when it comes to the temperature and the weather outside.
In the summer, heat and humidity is a reliable occurrence. It is only a matter of how hot and how humid. However, in the fall and winter, it may feel like fall or winter, or it may be very mild as if it were spring, or it may just straight up feel like summer. Because of this crapshoot, you can never tell how much usage you will get out of your HVAC system during this time. This particular year, fall weather seemed to come right on time. At least half of October was pleasantly cool and even cold in the evenings. Then things got warmer, and then, by November, it was so warm that the weather could pass for a mild summer. I really enjoyed the first half of October, because I didn’t need to use the air conditioner and I really didn’t feel like using the heat, so I saved money on energy costs! You see, I prefer a very cool room at night. It lends itself to sleeping soundly. I will admit, it did end up getting just a bit too chilly at times, but that’s when I point the fan in a different direction. Yes, I sleep with fans even when it’s nice and cool already: the noise and the circulating air also help me sleep. Well, you just never know what kind of weather you’re going to get in the fall and winter around here. I hope trends start tilting towards the cooler side though. You can bet that’s when I’m going to save the most money on my energy bills.
