Although I live in the far northern part of the country, I’ve always hated cold weather, I’m not a fan of snow as well as don’t adore skiing, snowmobiling or sledding.
I’d rather not need to bundle up in layers of overcoats, boots and gloves just to step outside.
I’m frustrated by spending hours shoveling the sidewalks as well as plowing the driveway. I get so much snow that I am constantly required to dig out the mailbox as well as shovel a path for the dog to walk. Anytime I want to go anywhere, I first have to brush snow off the car, scrape ice off the windshield as well as let the heating system run for several hours. I spend a fortune attempting to heat our home. I get such brutal wintertime weather that the furnace runs for nine straight months at maximum capacity. I schedule professional service for the heating plan every fall as well as substitute the filter every month, just trying to keep it operating at peak efficiency. With the furnace blowing, the air in the home becomes terribly dry. I then deal with static shock, frizzy hair, chapped lips as well as dry skin. I never get even a glimpse of the sun, so our skin is as pale as a ghost. It’s impossible to look attractive in winter, so my goal is to retire as well as move far enough south to get by with a heat pump. An electric heat pump acts as an air conditioning in the summer as well as reverses operation to provide heat in the winter. It’s only effective until the outside temperature drops below cold. I system to live in a section where that isn’t a problem.
