I live far up north here in the united states of america. Some people may refer to this area as the arctic tundra. Other words, it is really freezing cold here most of the year long. Think of it as the reverse of the southwest part of the united states of america where it is always very hot most of the year round. Here up north, heating is a big must have. Like I was saying, it is the reverse of the southwest where air conditioning is the must have! Heating bills here in the far north can get quite high, more so in the winter time months. It is on a small rare chance that we actually use air conditioning in the summer time months. Sure, it does get warm here, but it is not so warm that you even need to bother turning on the cooling part of your central heating and cooling system in your home! Central heating and cooling systems here more or less use just the heating part. But, like I said, there are those rare times during the summer time months that you may need the air conditioning during the daytime hours. All in all I really love living up here in the north. Because simply I love the cool weather over the heat. I can not stand super hot weather, and it is cheaper to run heating than it is cooling here in the far north. Do not ask me why, because I do not know. It just is, and I love it here!
