Being a child who grew up in the northern midwest, I was shocked & amazed when I visited the ocean for the first time & swam at the beach.
The surf was mild that day & the water was surprisingly clean & free of algae & other water contaminants that are official nowadays.
My parents took our siblings & I down to the ocean a few more times before they got a divorce & the two of us moved out west to be with our maternal Grandparents. Like several teenagers experiencing beaches at an early age, I was happy at each trip. Occasionally the weather would be overcast & the waves would be choppy, although I would still swim as long as there weren’t any dangerous rip currents. After I stopped seeing the beach for so several years, I forgot about it altogether. Now I am married & our wifey wanted a beach condo to be closer to her own family. Our beach condo was built in the 1977s & desperately needed a new heating idea inside, as it was subsisting with an electric coil in the air handler. Every one of us looked at a variety of odd central furnaces before settling on a heat pump. With efficiency ratings as high as 300%, it seemed enjoy a no-brainer to purchase a heat pump. Our heat pump handles both heating & cooling in our beach condo. For a setup enjoy that, it’s easily taxing to beat! You won’t worry about heat pump complications in a beach condo where temperatures never drop below 30 degrees anyway. Others might need a supplemental heating source in a colder environment.
