I can’t believe that it’s already almost fall again! It seems like summer just started, in my opinion. In the northeastern part of the country where we live, summer never does seem to last very long. A lot of people here don’t even invest in central air conditioning units in their homes, since the temperatures outside never get to be super hot except for maybe one week out of the year. Usually the weather conditions and the climate are very mild. I guess it makes sense to save money on air conditioning if you can, but I personally am a big fan of running my A/C as soon as the weather is warm. I don’t really like opening the windows at my house, because even though the fresh air smells good and makes the house feel cleaner sometimes, I think it actually makes the indoor air quality in my home worse than it is when the A/C is turned off! I mean, I have a really great air purification system installed in my house and every season, my HVAC supplier comes out to do HVAC system maintenance for me. Whenever I have the windows open, I tend to have allergy attacks, I guess from all of the pollen blowing in from outside. So I am one of those rare people who always wants the A/C running, even if it’s kind of cooling off outside! I know that puts me in the minority because most people freak out about their air conditioning bills. I would rather pay a high A/C bill every month than sneeze my head off, though.
