Things are Heating up Outside Today

I’m not sure what the temp is outside right now but when I went out on my balcony it felt like an oven. I bet we are over 100F now with the heat index and I am more than happy to stay inside with my cool air conditioning until it starts to cool down a bit out there. I usually don’t go to the beach till about 7pm when it gets cooler because the sand is so hot that it burns your feet. I went out last week and tried to play ball in the middle of the day and ended up with 11 blisters on my feet. My HVAC system is fairly new and runs a lot to keep my place cool yet my power bills are still pretty low. I think this summer I have been paying about $120 a month for my cooling bills, which is pretty low considering how hot it has been. We have about five more weeks of this heat and then it is going to start cooling down pretty quickly. I am going to get my HVAC system cleaned next week so that it will be ready for winter as I have a furnace filter and want to make sure the heater is all clean for winter. I like to have the HVAC company do the cleaning and maintenance so I can focus on other things around the house. I bought a five year service contract with them a few years ago and I think I still have two more years left on it.
