Being outside is just part of my nature.
I’ve been this way since I was a kid.
I think I was so good at doing my homework as a kid just so I could get out of the air conditioning and back outside. I was never one for staying inside the heating and cooling comfort of home. My parents were great folks and we had a nice little house with central air conditioning. The winter in this region was as mild as it was when I was growing up inside the air conditioning of my parent’s house. But the summer still comes with a four month stretch where the heat and humidity are really brutal. Yet, I can’t let all that keep me inside. In fact, my business and my livelihood depend on me getting out of the air conditioning each day. I have a landscaping company that requires lots of hours outside in the sun. Even on the bigger commercial projects with work trailers that have ductless heat pumps, I’m still outside with my crew most all day. For 8 months of the year, there isn’t a better job in the world. But from June through September, I’m really glad to get home to the air conditioning comfort of my house at the end of the day. We have a smart thermostat so I don’t have to worry at all that my home will be at the right thermostat setting when I get home. And I don’t have to program it as the smart thermostat takes care of all the thermostat settings and cycles we depend on around here.
