I love the feeling of being warm inside a house while I watch the rain pour down out of the window.
Being cozy was one of my favorite things about living in the north of the country. However, it can certainly be a challenge, especially during the winter months. During those months, my routine was to do outdoor activities such as hiking, gardening, and playing soccer during the day, and at night, when the temperature would drop considerably, I would go back home and immediately turn on the central heating. I would then make a nice cup of tea and sit next to the electric fireplace with my dog on my lap. This fireplace, even though it wasn’t a traditional one, added to the cozy and warm atmosphere of the living room. During the time I spent in this part of the country, I learnt from the people to be welcoming and hospitable, and I remember that when the HVAC professional came over to perform a tune-up, I offered him tea and cookies. After he completed his work, we had a nice chat and that was lovely. When I first moved in, I was worried about heating bills. However, because the heating system was efficient, I managed to save on energy costs, even though during the winter it was on practically all the time. Living in the northern part of the country was fantastic thanks to my efficient and high-quality HVAC system; otherwise, I don’t know how I would have managed to endure the extreme winter temperatures.
