In the Deep South I rely on my air conditioner

Living in the deep south is not for the weak.

It takes a tough woman made of stern stuff to survive in the swamps of the southeastern corner of the country; For example, consider the bug population for a second.

In this section my good friend Ed and I have bees, wasps, hornets, sixteen strange kinds of ants, gnats, centipedes, millipedes, mosquitos, as well as huge palmetto bugs, which is what Ed and I call the flying cockroaches, but even with bi-weekly pest control services, this is a really buggy place. The insects all thrive here because of the awful heat as well as humidity which plagues us for most of the year. It is vital to have my central HVAC plan checked as well as tuned up twice each year, because I can’t go for 1 single day without a/c. Although temperature controls are substantial, it is just as vital to maintain clean, clear indoor air conditions. Think of it like this – because of all the gross bugs as well as the stifling humidity, it’s rare that I can open up the lakeside house for natural ventilation. With no natural ventilation, the lake house starts to slowly grow more stale as well as dank due to the recycled air. This means that air duct cleanings as well as regular air filter updates are vital to maintaining a healthy household air quality. This is also why a/c is so vital down here. a/c not only protects our comfort levels, but it can enhance the air quality Ed and I breathe. Whenever the outdoor temps do normalize for a few nights, I make sure to open up the whole lakeside house for natural ventilation, which always makes a very sizable difference.
