My husband, Joe, as well as I moved down south because we wanted to experience year round moderate weather. Him as well as I were so happy to never experience ice, snow as well as cold. Come to find out, down south does get pretty chilly in the colder season months. The people I was with and I were both totally unprepared for how chilly it gets in the south. I believe right now southerns are experiencing shockingly chilly weather too. They cancelled school for a couple afternoons, the weather people were freaking out on the news as well as it is all anyone can talk about. Joe as well as I are in an condo that uses a heat pump system. Heat pumps are legitimately energy efficient as well as perfect for the south. What this Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment does is use the heat energy already in the air. In the summer the moderate air goes outside as well as the cool air is pumped indoors to create a cooling effect. In the colder season heat energy that is outside is pulled inside for heating. However, since a heat pump uses heat energy it is only effective to about forty degree weather. Well Joe as well as I are experiencing some of the coldest weather the south has ever experienced. Every morning is below forty degrees. Our condo heat pump cannot handle this amount of chilly air. The Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C plan has been going non stop since my husband as well as I have been here. Even with the heating system on, we are both still way too cold. Also to make matters worse, Joe has already acquired one month’s bill. Our energy bills are super high since we have the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment going non-stop.
