I slow down with the aid of ductless heat pumps

I’m somewhat compromising this summer when it comes to being outside

It practically goes without saying. All of us who are fortunate enough to live to be at least 70 years old must learn to deal with the effects of aging. I’m definitely not immune to that. But fortunately, once I turned about 40, I started taking pretty good care of my body. In fact, I spent at least half of my day standing in my office’s zone-controlled HVAC system before I retired at age 66. I learned how to balance stress with other interests, adequate rest, and healthy eating in addition to getting my recommended amount of exercise. I had plenty of energy left when I retired, allowing me to indulge my passion for outdoor recreation. Because I enjoy being outside so much, I kind of wish I had chosen a profession that didn’t require me to work in a building’s HVAC system. We, therefore, upgraded the HVAC system in the family home after I had it up, sold it, and moved to the south. After that, I was let go in a way that allowed me to spend almost all of my time outside. During the hottest parts of the day where we live, you must undoubtedly find some form of cooling comfort. Even so, it only persists for four to five months on average. I was working outside the rest of the time. However, I’ve noticed that I’m slowing down a lot more now that I’m 79. That said, it hasn’t lessened my desire to spend time outside. I’m somewhat compromising this summer when it comes to being outside. Now that I’m slowing down, I had a ductless heat pump installed in the sunroom by the HVAC company. So even though I’ll still have air conditioning when the temperature soars, I’ll at least feel like I’m outside all the time.
