The heat of Tampa

My goal is always to make my home a little more comfortable.

  • Living in Tampa, FL is tough.

I moved to the city because of a boyfriend. He needed to live in Tampa for work. We have since broken up and I never left. I really like what Tampa has to offer. You have the Tampa Bay lightning, you have a big venue that hosts a ton of musicians, there are bars, restaurants, shops, and all sorts of fun events. Tampa is a happening area. The only con for me is the hot weather. I hate hot weather. I thought before I hated snow and cold, but the heat is worse for me. In Tampa it can get to the triple digits and when you factor in the humidity, my god it is brutal. I hate it. I am constantly overheated and just wanting to kill myself. I have done what I can though. I bought myself an above ground pool and I basically live in it during the summer. I bought a bunch of trees to give me shade cover. I also bought a top of the line AC system. My idea is that if I have a good quality AC unit, I will be happier with the weather. I don’t skimp and do energy savings either. I own a smart thermostat and I don’t let it save me money. Keep it cold all the time. I don’t want it to ever come into a warm home. I use the AC basically 90% of the time. Owning a heater isn’t really necessary in Southern Florida.
