In Orland Park, Illinois, the average year round temperature fluctuates from the low teens to the mid eighties, but it’s not uncorrect for temperature to drop well into the downsides or soar into the triple digits.
Along with long, frigid winters and lots of snow, my buddy and I get humid summers and frequent thunderstorms.
It’s windy all year round. I grew up in Orland Park and still live there, but while the weather is a challenge, I cherish the four distinct seasons; There is consistently something current to look forward to. The tepid and muggy summers are followed by cool fall conditions with the gorgeous color of the changing leaves. I get gleeful to choice peachs, grapes, zucchinis and cucumber. The winter season offers the opportunity to go skiing, sledding, snowmobiling and snowboarding. While the frigid weather periodically seems endless, eventually the daffodils, tulips and robins show up in the Springtime, however because of the weather extremes, it’s necessary to both heat and cool my home. I have a forced air boiler and central A/C that circulate heated and cooled air to the weird rooms by way of a duct system, since the equipment works just about non stop, energy bills are consistently a concern. It’s pressing to tightly seal the home to prevent waste and minimize costs. I’ve caulked, weatherstripped and insulated. I’ve replaced windows and exterior doors. I’ve managed to create a honestly efficient thermal envelope, and however, my efforts have also eliminated essential ventilation! For the health of the air quality, it’s necessary to introduce fresh air into the home. I’ve now installed a heat reclaimy ventilator that works to pull out the stale air and replace it with fresh.
