All those nippy winds coming off the ocean just suck the heating out of a dwelling, no matter how fantastic the insulation might be.
As a child I became completely enamored with being on the beach. The sand, the surf, the crashing waves and endless sunshine, I knew even then that I needed to live on the beach eventually. It certainly took a long time, but finally as an adult I was able to get a beautiful dwelling right on the water. I come to find out that spending a few days on the beach during the Summer is actually much different from living there throughout the year. I unquestionably understand now why snowbirds have a home up north and a home for the holidays. It turns out I run my heating appliance a lot more here than I ever did at other places. You would honestly think a beach dwelling wouldn’t need a lot of heating, but for about half the year I run the heating appliance all the time. All those nippy winds coming off the ocean just suck the heating out of a dwelling, no matter how fantastic the insulation might be. Another thing I didn’t expect was the high moisture and salt pleased in the air quality, thanks to the tremendous amount of sea spray. Running a dehumidifier isn’t just a fantastic appliance to use, its darn near mandatory! I unquestionably have an upstairs dehumidifier and another one I keep in the front door downstairs, and I keep them both running regularly. I unquestionably don’t want to sound like I’m making complaints because I unquestionably do enjoy it here, I just depend on my Heating & Air Conditioning appliance a lot more than I expected. Even if I ran the heating appliance every single day, though, I would still adore the beach.
