I lived with weird house rules in the midwest.
A lot of it came down to being in a completely weird environment altogether. Up in our state my associate and I were close to a lot of lakes and experienced higher winds than the areas in the state where it was devoid of water. With the chilly temperatures and high winds, my associate and I didn’t have much of a need for air conditionings unless it was the dead middle of summer time and my associate and I experienced a afternoon with little to no wind, which amounted to only a handful of afternoons each year. I joked with my heating and cooling professional at the time that I didn’t even need much help with my a/c, it was more about keeping my boiler working at optimum capacity. There were some years when I had no choice however to run the heat in May of June when temperatures would linger in the 40s and 50s at the tail end of the Spring season. Now that I’m residing in Tampa, Florida, the Heating plus A/C supplier that services my heating and cooling is primarily focused on the air conditioning. That’s what I use yearly as the western Florida sun beats down on my back. The Heating plus A/C tech warned me about leaving my windows open because of the dust and fungal spores that can get in from outdoors and create havoc for you and your family. Some people don’t try to maintain their indoor humidity, especially in coastal areas near Tampa Bay and Old Tampa Bay. It’s the same in Pinellas County as it is here in Hillsborough County.
