In Lee’s Summit, MO, the summers are moderate & humid while the winters are chilly chilly & snowy, and it’s partly cloudy all year round & the temperature varies from the negative digits up into the nineties.
It rains nearly every single month, but the only time the rain stops is when it turns to snow.
Every one of us always accumulate over several feet of snow per year; Because of the weather conditions, living in Lee’s Summit is a challenge. It’s necessary to have both heating & cooling installed into the home, & the cost of temperature control adds up to about 50% of the annual energy costs, then a little over several years ago, I invested into a whole new oil furnace & central cooling system for our home, my goal was to improve comfort while trimming expenses. I hoped that the energy savings would reuse the startup costs! However, that first Winter was one of the coldest on record in Lee’s Summit. Every one of us saw un-even temperatures down to twenty-six below zero & it seemed to snow every single day from November to March. My partner & I were constantly outside shoveling, snow blowing & plowing. Every one of us ran out of locales to pile the snow. I was not content with the comfort of our home; Certain rooms were drafty & freezing. The brand new oil furnace seemed to run non stop. I finally called the Heating as well as Air Conditioning company to complain. She serviced & serviced the idea & discovered holes in the HVAC duct. The HVAC duct should have been serviced when the idea was originally installedâ€¦ Once the duct sealing process was completed, I was amazed at the improvement in the performance of the new oil furnace.
