Running the air con system for summer

Today is the first day of summer and also the longest day of the year.

The sun sets here at 9:29pm and it isn’t dark till 10pm, which makes it tough to get to bed at a decent hour like I was doing all winter.

I think that is the only drawback of summer, but the rest of the stuff makes up for that drawback. We get to play volleyball as much as we want each day without worrying about it getting dark, and usually I am not home till 11pm most nights we play. My air con system will be running each day from about 11 am till 5 pm, which is when it is heating up the most each day, making my flat a furnace if I am not running the climate control system. It is a very efficient system though and if I run it each day like that it only costs me about $50 extra each month, a small price to pay for being comfy all day. I don’t need to run the HVAC system’s cooling unit at night in the flat but I do run my mini split a/c unit each night in my bedroom. I bought the small unit a few months ago so I wouldn’t freeze my flatmate out when I was cooling down my room at night in the month of March. She is a heating and cooling supplier and she thought I was nuts for running the a/c when outside it was still in the 50’s at night. To each his own, right?
