The reverse effect happens in the summer
Alabama is a really great state in my opinion. You don’t hear anything too radical left or right from Alabama. We are wholesome, put together and a happy community. I really enjoy that I live in a location with such great weather too. I could never live somewhere that is hot most of the year. I enjoy a good summer season to cool off in the AC and swimming in the pool. However, I don’t want it to be all the time. In Alabama we do get a winter season. Snow and below freezing temperatures are rare though. In my opinion, that is the best of the winter season. Getting cooler weather without the horrible, wet, cold snow? That is the best! We also get a nice fall and spring season. It is truly a four season state. Due to this I have been able to get by with a geothermal heat pump option for my Tuscaloosa home. I love that it is a green and energy efficient option in the HVAC field. The geothermal heat pump is buried underground and takes the existing heat energy in the winter season from there. Under the ground is much warmer than the air. That clean, fresh heat is then pumped indoors and my colder air is pumped outside. The reverse effect happens in the summer. Sure, the start-up costs were a bit much but now that I am going all year long, I am saving so much money. You can’t have geothermal HVAC in any state, but in Alabama it works great.
