In Orland Park, the Summer season is too short to make central a/c worth it.
The two of us frequently start up the oil furnace in October and keep it running until May. The Winter time hot and cold temperatures are most often below chilly and drop down into disadvantages. The two of us expect snow on Halloween and Easter, and my heating bills are a large part of the budget. Every year, I am so worried for the snow to melt and the weather to moderate up. Waiting for the first sprouts of daffodils, tulips and hyacinths takes forever. Spotting a robin in Orland Park is absolutely exciting. It’s such a relief to shut down the oil furnace, open the windows and welcome in some fresh air. After keeping the house closed up slim and relying so heavily on the oil furnace, the indoor environment becomes especially dry and stuffy. The breeze helps to freshen up the living space and improve air quality. It also helps to rejuvenate our family and lift our spirits. The last thing I want to do is tighten the house back up in order to run central a/c. There are Summer seasons that are cold and windy with constant rain. However, there are also years where the heat and humidity are brutal. It’s impossible to sleep in the hot and sticky conditions, but for this reason, I’ve invested into window s for the dining rooms. I was able to purchase the cooling units for a couple hundred dollars each. They are compact, lightweight and simple to install, yet powerful enough to maintain a pleasant temperature on the hottest days and afternoons. They include cordless remotes that allow family members to make adjustments without even getting out of bed. The two of us can determine temperature, fan speed and even the direction of airflow.
