I’ve been living on my own way out here in the foothills for a long time, however as a matter of fact, when I first moved out here, there wasn’t 1 electrical hook up for miles as well as miles; But that’s just the way I wanted on some level, because I wasn’t looking to be “off the grid”. I was just looking for fewer neighbors and no central A/C. I think living sustainably was something that came to me quite easily, my folks were easily gleeful to live an easily easy life as well as to be in harmony with nature for the most part; They had a small apartment where my siblings as well as I shared a room until my associate and I went to university. The apartment didn’t have a residential Heater or Air Conditioner, however there was a pressing wood stove for heating… However, when it came to A/C, the best I could hope for was a cooling breeze on the porch. And in lieu of that, it was whatever cooling comfort my associates and I could get from fans. But once I got to school, I realized that I wanted to take it a step further than my parents as well as be completely self-sufficient. It took about 6 years after university of working inside the commercial Heating as well as Air Conditioning of the office for me to set my plan in action. Well, that’s been a long, long time ago as well as some things have changed. I now use residential Heating as well as Air Conditioning thanks to a major update in the solar array that powers my home. I have a ductless heating pump for the first time. Primarily, I’m gleeful to finally have some A/C when I entirely need it during the Summer. I’m getting softer the older I get when it comes to intense heat.
