Planning our air conditioning strategy

Planning our air conditioning strategy

Nick March 6, 2023

I try to limit the family meetings! When I was a kid, my mom was always holding family meetings as it was sort of the progressive thing to do back then.

But in fact, she would hold these meetings not to get everyone on the same page however to hammer us youngsters on our behavior! That’s my mom though, she’s a bit of a drama queen to this day.

So I’ve never been one to do that with my kids. If there is a problem inside the central air conditioner of our home, my husband and I deal with it then and there. And there is no screaming or drama. There is only direction and accountability on just about every occasion, then yet, I did hold a bit of a family meeting the other night while I was at dinner. And the topic was the air conditioner! Of course, that seems like an odd conversation to be having in the middle of winter. But where we live, the winter is pretty mild and the largest Heating and A/C issue is the air conditioner the rest of the year. The cost of all that cooling comfort has come to be a burden on our budget. So this year, I wanted the family to be on the same page with a new Heating and A/C strategy. When the temperatures go up in the Springtime, we’re going to leave the air conditioner off. In fact, we’re going to wait as long as my husband and I can to turn on the air conditioner. By acclimating to the heat and the humidity, we’re going to need less air conditioner in the summer. And I also reminded them that we’re going to double down on thermostat discipline and the new air conditioner strategy this Springtime.
