I love my home and its HVAC unit in foul weather

First, I crank up my furnace to fight off the chill

I never appreciate my home more than when the weather is foul. Trust me, I enjoy days that are warm and sunny with a nice breeze. Those are the days that make me feel like I could spend the entire day outside! I often do so, just to appreciate how beautiful the day is. I’ll find any excuse to enjoy a nice day. However, when it is an extremely hot day, or a cold and wet day with smudgy, gray clouds, I retreat into the comfort of my own home. On a blazing hot day, when the sun is bright, I will pull the shades on my windows and doors and blast my powerful air conditioning unit. Pretty soon I can’t even tell how hot it is outside, because I am in my own little cool bubble of protection. Every now and then, when I get the mail or walk the dog on such a day, walking out my front door feels like walking into an oven! Being in my cool, air conditioned house, it was easy to forget just how bad it was outside. It’s pretty much the same for cold, wet days. I do what I can to make my own warm and bright. First, I crank up my furnace to fight off the chill. Then, I light some candles or even the fireplace to get a nice, cherry feel. Then, I brew a cup of tea and relax in the warmth, dryness, and comfort that my home and its climate control system afford me.
