Weather in my region of the country is the strangest thing you’ve ever seen. And I know it’s not like this elsewhere, because I’ve moved around a lot. In the southeast, the weather is fairly predictable. That sounds boring, but it’s not a bad thing. Stable weather makes it easier for the body to become used to changes in climate without getting sick. Even where my parents live in the southeast, they get the occasional storm, but otherwise things are pretty predictable. Not only does this keep you healthier, but it helps you save money on your utility bill. They aren’t constantly adjusting their HVAC system to accommodate the changes in temperature outside. Back in February, we had a week where it got up to 70 degrees. Four days late, it dropped down to 20 degrees and we had a massive blizzard that knocked out power across the region. It’s just mental! The joke here is if you don’t like the weather, just blink. But all of these shifts make it so trying on our heating and cooling plan. How are we supposed to program a schedule into our thermostat that works for us, if the weather is constantly in flux? Then we just end up wasting AC, when we could have turned it down a lot because it was so cool outside. Even now in the summer, we went from 96 to 56 in less than 12 hours. We’re all going to have a cold by the end of the week.
