It’s been just about two years since I moved to this region.
This will be my third winter and I’m loving it more than I thought possible.
Prior to moving here, I lived in the far north where winter means a very different thing. Actually, winter weather is not too far from the front of mind for most people who live in the farther northern reaches of this country. It’s hard not to be thinking about HVAC heating when it’s just so essential to every home. So when I moved south, I wasn’t sure just what the winter would be like. I knew that there weren’t really any gas furnace HVAC methods where we moved. Instead, the heating and cooling was done by just one piece of HVAC equipment. And that residential HVAC unit is the heat pump. At first, I just wasn’t so sure. Then again, I really had no inkling of just how lovely the winter is down here. There is no snow or ice. If the temperature even gets close to freezing, it’s a rarity. Still, I just wasn’t all that convinced about the HVAC heat pump. Well, that first winter was all it took. The first cold snap came in just weeks after we moved in. And it was nothing like what I had experienced. Yet, the heat pump did kick on to provide some HVAC heating. And it was far more than I expected. The house was very warm and quite cozy. Of course, I have become a much bigger fan of the heat pump because of all the HVAC cooling we need when winter is over. I’m still get acclimated to that sort of heat so great air conditioning from the heat pump is an enormous help.
