Fall is a marvelous but slightly problematic time of year in our apartment state.
It is amazing how the weather can so abruptly fluctuate from the windows-down Summer heat to the bundle-up weather of winter.
It is quite unbelievable how you can be utilizing air conditioning one moment, & then turning up the heat the same day. I remember one Halloween, I was given the chance to volunteer at an outdoor event providing candy to kids. I was expecting possibly some crisp weather, but not old man winter. I dressed in a normal costume, not thinking that I may need to prepare for a situation where I would be wishing for heating, but it’s not available. As I was passing out handfuls of candy to princesses and superheroes of all kinds, I was shocked most of all, not by a costume, but by snowflakes fluttering down! I clearly remember thinking that our costume was not created for the winter, & wishing desperately that I was at the apartment soaking in the warmth of our heat. Just as I should have consulted with the weather & worn a warmer costume, it uses the autumn months to prepare for the cold of winter. Both of us often suppose that all of us will somehow know before the cold weather comes, but this is not regularly the case. There is a lot of time in the fall where the weather is not too boiling or cold, making an HVAC seem like an excess, when in fact this is the best time to do it! I would much rather be prepared for old man winter’s iciness breathing down my neck than find out too late that the heater is blowing cold air or not coming on at all. Fall is an unbelievable time to make sure that your HVAC component is good to go for old man winter’s arrival.
