Moving from the north to the south was a big transition; I was accustomed to Winter rapidly decreasing temperatures in the disadvantages, snow for months at a time and relying heavily on the oil furnace, and sweaters, snow shovels and ice scrapers were necessities.
I drove a four-wheel-drive car and never dared buy tickets for an event tied up anytime between October and April.
I was blissful to relocate to an area with plenty of sunshine, palm trees and sizzling rapidly decreasing temperatures. I no longer worry about snow removal or blizzard conditions. My new apartment is not equipped with any type of heating capacity, the two of us run the cooling system just about year round. The cooling system effectively pulls heat out of the apartment to maintain the desired temperature. It helps with humidity however can’t handle the abundance of moisture, then lowering the temperature control setting just creates a greater workload for the cooling system separate from solving the cause of the problem. It was necessary to install a dehumidifier. I’d tried portable dehumidifiers and found that the devices required constant emptying of the reservoirs separate from making much of an impact. The whole-apartment dehumidifier pulls moisture out of the air as it passes through the cooling system. By lowering humidity to a comfortable level, it’s possible to set a higher temperature control setting, lessen demands on the cooling system and improve comfort. The dehumidifier operates round-the-clock and virtually silently. It requires only annual repair. Because of this replace, the people I was with and I have far fewer complications with condensation running down the windows, mold and mildew growth. The apartment feels and odors fresher. My family sleeps better at evening and has more energy during the day.
