My family lived in a house that was a converted log cottage.
Instead of a single large room, it was given walls plus a minute floor, making it a four dining room house.
However, the two of us still relied on a wood stove plus a gas boiler for our Autumn plus Winter time heating. Having satisfactory heat in these temperatures is a life or death complication during the worst Winter time chilly snaps where temperatures plummet below zero. Every year I helped our father cut plus stack firewood so the family would be set in case of the worst weather. Getting the boiler took care of plus took care of was equally pressing, plus every single a single of our siblings plus I took turns scheduling Heating plus Air Conditioning repair appointments during our childhood. It instilled in us the importance of taking care of the oil furnace, especially since it was a tool for our survival. But now that I’m living in Cocoa, FL, I can make it through most winters here without a heating plan at all. I have an lake house on Merritt Island plus the temperatures here are so warm year round that consistently I have our air conditioner running regardless of the season. All of us get a lot of humidity coming from the Indian River on the west side plus Banana River on the east side, however i’m using our air conditioner to keep the humidity down as much as I rely on it for cooling our indoor air. If I could get a dehumidifier for a nice price, I could certainly save on energy expenses by being able to use the air conditioner less. The winters are so mild that I can get away with just having a space heating system to use during the few serious chilly snaps. Otherwise I just put more clothes on to respond to colder temperatures.
