Around noon on any given day during the summer months, you can count on the house being so hot that not even the central cooling system can cool the house.
- I think the main problem is the lack of trees in the yard that provide shade coverage.
Most of the time in the place where I live, there is no rain and no cloud coverage. The sun beats down on the roof all day and around mid-day, not even the AC can keep the house cool. The best part about the summer months is the rain. It rains a lot and this really helps to keep the house cool. When we go through dry spouts, there are days that the temperature inside the house reaches up to 90 degrees. Our utilities bill is always significantly higher during the summer months. To say the least, we are thrilled when we see rain in the forecast during the summer months. Today it is raining and I can already tell that the house is much cooler. I think that next year we will end up having to replace the cooling system in our home. The cooling system is older and it is time to be replaced. When we bought the house, the cooling system was 20 years old. I didn’t know that the cooling system was this old when we originally bought the house. As for the rest of this year, I will keep hoping to see rain in the forecast.
