A bit of common sense and behavior adjustment saves on HVAC cooling

Just allow the body to acclimate a bit to the heat

I learned, perhaps a bit late in life, that getting all worked up over a problem is one of the worst things that I can do. For decades, when there would be a challenge, the first thing I seemed to do was get angry. That was sort of my default when I had to tackle a problem. When I figured out just how terrible that was for me, I changed. Those working with me inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office thought I was on drugs or something. Instead of getting sort of crazy when something happened, I just listened and took my time to consider other opinions and find a consensus. It sure makes working inside that zone controlled HVAC a lot more easy and enjoyable. I see a similar sort of behavior around here when the temperatures start to get to and stay in the 80’s. That’s pretty much spring weather in our region and a lot of people go right for the air conditioning. I mean at the hint of anything other than a perfect 71 degrees, folks are falling all over themselves to get to the thermostat. And it’s these same people I hear angrily complaining all the time about the high price of air conditioning. Some basic common sense behavior could really save these folks some angst as well as some money on HVAC cooling. Simply don’t turn on the air conditioning so early. Just allow the body to acclimate a bit to the heat. When summer comes, inside temps in the low 80’s sure feel cool when it’s nearly a hundred outside. And it saves a ton on HVAC cooling costs.
