Around noon on any given afternoon during the Summer months, you can count on the home being so sizzling that not even the central cooling system can cool the house… I suppose the main problem is the lack of trees in the yard that supply shade coverage, however most of the time in the place where I live, there is no rain and no cloud coverage, however the sun beats down on the roof all afternoon and around mid-day, not even the A/C can keep the home cool.
The best part about the Summer months is the rain.
It rains a lot and this entirely helps to keep the home cool, however when we go through dry spouts, there are mornings that the temperature inside the home reaches up to 90 degrees, however our utilities bill is constantly significantly higher during the Summer months. To say the least, we are happy when we see rain in the forecast during the Summer months. Today it is raining and I can already tell that the home is much cooler. I suppose that next year we will end up having to substitute the cooling system in our home. The cooling system is older and it is time to be substituted. When we purchased the house, the cooling system was 20 years old. I didn’t know that the cooling system was this seasoned when we originally purchased the house, however as for the rest of this year, I will keep hoping to see rain in the forecast.
