I continue to look at the thermostat

Living in differents parts of the country can have various outcomes for how much you spend on energy consumption. I’ve lived in multiple weird parts of the nation and experienced the weird types of climates they have. The northern area of the nation has unquestionably harsh Winters, while the Southern parts have burning hot warm seasons. Out West, the other seasons seem to take the backseat to allow for more comfortable temperatures. The climate in California is similar to a never-ending Spring. It’s a state of typically warm weather, nice breezes, plus sunshine. If I had to choose which area of the country I wanted to live, I’m not sure I would be able to make a decision. Florida’s weather is filled with humidity, so there is more need to use central air conditioning systems. The climate in Florida while I was in the Spring and the Summer had temperatures varying between 73 degrees to 95 degrees or more. Having cooling air circulating through our lake condo was essential, then running our A/C equipment extensively throughout the warmer months impacted our energy bill greatly. Occasionally setting our control equipment at 73 while I was in these sizzling weeks is not typically helpful when trying to combat the heat. The Winter weeks supply me with a reduction of usage for the A/C unit. During the Winter, I’m able to dress more warmly to combat the cold. Living in the North while I was in the Winter has a critical impact on energy waste. The climate control equipment stays set at the cozy 73 degrees because the weather outside is a cold 15 degrees with two feet of snow to accompany it.
