That was just far too much air conditioning for me that’s for sure
Okay, so most people tend to do the retirement move the complete opposite of the way I just did it. I went from living in the south where the heat pump is king to moving up north. And the heat pump just isn’t any sort of match for the sort winter we have up here. The house I just bought came with a new gas furnace and it’s the very latest in residential HVAC. I’m so excited to be looking forward to winter again. Most of my friends down south thought I was nuts to be moving up north to retire. Like I said, most folks tend to move south in order to get away from all the cold and the high costs of HVAC heating. But for me, I wanted to be back home. This is where I’m from and I haven’t been able to live here for more than 25 years. Each time I visited, it just made me that much more sad to leave. This time, I’m here for good and it feels like I’m finally home now. Living in the south for my career was okay. There is so much to like about living down there. I enjoyed the culture and the people for sure. But the summers just took the spirit right out of me. The heat pump was running non stop from June through September. And, it was on in some capacity from March through till November. That was just far too much air conditioning for me that’s for sure. I’m loving August for the first time in a long time and knowing that the gas furnace will take care of me this winter is just the way I want it.
