Another thing I didn’t expect was the extremely high moisture as well as salt content in the air quality, thanks to the sea spray
As a kid I totally became enamored with being on the beach! The sand, the surf, the crashing waves as well as plentiful sunshine, I knew even then that I needed to live on the beach when I could. It took quite a few years, however finally as an adult I was able to get a nice residence right on the water. I come to find out that spending a few days on the beach while in the summertime is entirely different from living there all year round. I easily understand now why snowbirds have a home up north as well as a home for the holiday season. It turns out I run my oil furnace way more here than I ever did before in the past. You would seriously think that a beach residence wouldn’t need a large amount of heating, however for about half the year I run the heat a great deal. All those frosty winds coming off the ocean just suck the heating out of a residence, no matter how nice the insulation might be. Another thing I didn’t expect was the extremely high moisture as well as salt content in the air quality, thanks to the sea spray. Running a dehumidifier isn’t just something that is convenient to have, it’s pretty much mandatory! I easily have an upstairs dehumidifier as well as another one I keep in the front door downstairs, as well as I keep them both running 24/7. I truly don’t want to sound as if I’m complaining, because I truly do adore living in this place, I just rely on my Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C machine a lot more than I expected… Even if I was required to run the oil furnace every single day for the rest of my years, though, I would still adore the beach.
