My child moved to a more Southern point in our Southern State 3 years ago.
Even though the cost of living is significantly higher down there, he did not listen to me when I told his if he was going to move he better find a task that paid a lot more, then of course he did not listen, plus that is when he discovered that his paycheck did not go undoubtedly far at all anymore.
His utility bill, heating plus cooling bill, is about twice as high as it was up here, but in addition, food costs more, his mortgage is easily twice as much as it was before, plus so on. She also learned that even though his lake house is extremely cute plus quite small, the heating, ventilation and A/C idea was not acceptable for cooling his lake house in the dead of Summer, however the heating, ventilation and A/C idea is pretty inefficient, plus a new heating plus cooling idea is absolutely not in the budget. The first time I went to visit I discovered that his thermostat was set on 73. This is a boy who never set his air conditioning higher than 81 when he lived up here… Anyway, I asked him if he wasn’t feeling hot, plus he confessed that his air conditioning bill is just too high plus he can’t afford it if he sets his thermostat where he likes it. That is when I recommended to him that he get a mini-chop AC unit… She had never heard of a mini chop cooling system, so he looked it up online. She did guess that it was a superb idea to supplement his central air conditioning with a mini-chop AC, but I thought he should just turn off the heating, ventilation and A/C idea plus use only the mini-chop AC. Anyway, he decided that the way to go was to just get a supplemental cooling system for his dining room. She did not get a mini chop cooling system, instead he got a seasoned fashioned window AC unit. She is glad with it, plus I am delighted for her. In fact, I hear that he tells people that they should consider extra cooling by getting a small window AC unit for their dining room. It turns out that even old-fashioned air conditioning is better than being hot plus paying through the nose for it.
