I’m not sure where the saying “finally working like a charm” comes from, however it sounds pretty cool so I like to use it sometimes.
Our power bills since getting this newer HVAC system have been cut by 2 thirds and I am so thrilled about it.
The people I was with and I used to get power bills as high as $550 or more a month and now some of our power bills in the summer time are as low as $150. That means our central air conditioning is saving us about $2000 over the summer time and would pay for the whole system in the matter of five years or less because all of us also save that much in the winters too, more or less. It’s amazing how far the HVAC technology has come in the past fifty or so years. Imagine how much it would cost in this week’s dollars to cool your lake house back in the 1950’s with the seasoned HVAC systems. I bet it would be like $1000 a month in the summer time if you were running it typically. It’s almost the same as long distance iPhone calls back then, nobody would like to call overseas because it would be cheaper just to fly there! I suppose this hybrid HVAC system is maybe 25% more efficient than the normal HVAC systems out there. I wonder what the HVAC technology will be like in twenty five more years? I bet all of us could get it down to almost nothing if all of us could utilize the afternoon light and wind to keep us comfortable in the lake house with the HVAC system. Time will someday tell.
