Thankful November, Day 26

November 26, 2013

I'm thankful for our heat pump.
Over the last several years, we weren't able to afford to run our heat very high in the winter. (59*)
And you could forget about air conditioning. 
But right after Sweet Pea was born, my mom bought us a heat pump and had it installed.
It was like heaven!
We were able to keep it at a cool 72* all summer, and a so far we've been able to keep it at a warm 68* this autumn.
The air conditioning part of it, raised our electric bill $27, which was totally worth it! And doable.
And the cost of running it nearly 10* warmer in the autumn, is about the same price as it was last year!
It's so great having this thing with Sweet Pea around, we couldn't keep it that cold with her in the house.
And it was reaching 100* in the summer here.
