The Weekend Update: Summer

I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but this summer has been f#$%ing hot.  I mean, it’s always pretty hot: where I live, there are more than a couple days with 30 degrees celsius each month, June through September.  Add in the Humidex and it often feels like 35.  This summer is something else.

This summer – and as I’m writing this a few weeks ahead, it’s only early July still.  June has seen weeks of 35 degree, adding in that humidity, it often feels like 42 degrees celsius.

I live in an old house.  Those thick plaster and brick walls do ALOT to keep the temperature pretty constant – warmish in the winter, cool in the summer.  Not warm enough we leave the furnace off – it’s often on. But in summer, it stays nice enough indoors that we do not have air conditioning.

This summer is a game changer though.  We have to get one.  If this is what the world is warming up to, and its only going to get warmer, this is going to be a problem.

So, this leads to a bigger issue: how do I plan a whole home HVAC system when the thing is old.  I need to go back to the drawing board and build a better system.
