I live far up north here in the United States of america, some people may refer to this area as the arctic tundra, however other words, it is certainly chilly cold here most of the year long; Think of it as the reverse of the southwest section of the United States of america where it is regularly certainly 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 a/c is the must have! Heating bills here in the far north can get quite high, more so in the Winter season time months, but it is on a small scarce occasion that the two of us really use a/c in the Summer time months. Sure, it does get warm here, however it is not so warm that you even need to bother turning on the cooling section of your central heating and cooling program in your home! Central heating and cooling systems here more or less use just the heating part, but, like I said, there are those scarce times while in the Summer time months that you may need the ac while in the morning time minutes, but all in all I certainly prefer living up here in the north. Because simply I prefer the cool weather over the heat. I can not sit super hot weather, and it is cheaper to run heating than it is cooling here in the far north, but do not ask myself and others why, because I do not know. It just is, and I prefer it here!
