Making HVAC savings a challenge

That’s why I last spring we decided to start the HVAC cooling much later.

When it comes to the hum drum of life, I can always count on my husband to keep things exciting. Is just so much day to day stuff that we all have to deal with so why not make it interesting. This is the way we look at life in order to not get too serious about it. We’d rather be out there in life than inside the air conditioning worrying. So embracing our challenges in a fun way is something that we both feel good about. This past spring, we decided to commit to challenge each other when it came to saving on the HVAC cooling. Those costs can be higher around here and have especially been high in our home. Since it’s just the two of us and our pets, we were spending far too much on HVAC cooling. And it was really more out of just not paying enough attention. We just left the thermostat wherever we happen to leave it and then just paid whatever it cost when it came to utilities. Our summer comes with so much heat and humidity we’ve always overdone it with the HVAC cooling. But all that time of the air conditioning doesn’t really allow your body to acclimate to the heat at all. It just makes the heat feel even more oppressive once you’re outside of the central air conditioning. That’s why I last spring we decided to start the HVAC cooling much later. We waited all the way to the first week of June to leave the air conditioning on throughout the day. And we stuck to our thermostat discipline. The challenge paid off because we saved a bunch of money and applied that to a really great vacation this fall.
