Haven’t had to turn the a/c on in my house yet thankfully but I sure am happy I put it in last year. On that note, if anyone is planning on getting a/c this year is the year to do it. New regulations next year and 13 SEER no longer available so prices will be . 16SEER already $8-1500 more expensive cost of unit and likely prices to go up from here.Welcome to the new normal. And it's only going to get hotter over the next decade
I’m kind of surprised there isn’t more attention placed on passive heating and cooling. One of the neat things in Europe that was common place was exterior shutters to block the sun and hear from entering in the first place. Those are unheard of in Calgary (and most of the North America).If true, that is not a bad thing. Calgary with a 6C higher average annual temperate would be paradise.
Calgary is nowhere near warm enough to justify AC.
