The winters have been beautifully mild.
My partner plus I were extremely excited to transfer south. We bought a home in an area with long, boiling summers plus short, mild winters. The residence is equipped with a packaged component that provides both heating plus cooling. It works by transferring heat from a single location to another. In cooling mode, the method pulls heat out of the air plus delivers it outside by way of refrigerant. In heating mode, the method draws ambient heat from the outside air, compresses it to a higher temperature plus delivers it indoors. The first Winter we spent in the house, the weather set records for cold temperature. We had been told that the low hot plus cold temperatures never drop further than the high forties. That winter, the temperature plummeted into the twenties. Our heating method couldn’t keep up. We bundled up in layers of sweatshirts plus heavy socks; Several times, the heating component froze, plus we needed to shut it off truly plus attempt to thaw it out, however my partner finally bought an electric oil furnace that is designed to look care about a wood-burning stove. It adds some ambience plus also some extra heat, then just that little electric oil furnace was enough to make a difference in our level of comfort. We have not needed the electric oil furnace since that first year. We’ve now lived in the home for several years. The winters have been beautifully mild. However, if we get another especially cold season, we’ll be ready. I am especially thankful that we’ve never had any complaints with the method in cooling mode. It absolutely combats the high heat plus humidity we face for more than half the year.
