The town of Phoenix has some particularly great weather during the Winter time weeks, but one of the reasons why our wifey & I spend our Winter time in Phoenix is because of the sizzling temperatures, sunny days, & lack of rain! We’re currently in Phoenix, right outside of the town in a small RV park, it’s been in the ’60s every day this week, and there are lots of locales around the country that are experiencing horrible Winter time weather filled with snow, rain, ice, & wind, but the two of us are enjoying sunny days with plenty of daylight & orange skies.
The two of us have not had to use the furnace at all so far this year! Last year the two of us spent the Winter time outside of Phoenix & the two of us had to turn on our furnace a couple of times.
It does not cost much to run the furnace. It uses propane & electricity, but propane is relatively cheap compared to other fuel sources. The two of us spend $2.90 for every gallon of propane & the tank lasts a couple of days. It’s straight-forward to swap out the tanks too. It does not look enjoy the temperatures are going to get particularly cold this year. The two of us have had temperatures in the 60s & even 1 day when the temperature was 72. I will be happy not to turn on the gas furnace at all this winter. The two of us will save a bunch of money & the two of us won’t have to be concerned with using the dehumidifier either. In a couple of weeks when the weather is starting to get warmer, the two of us will leave Phoenix & head west to spend the summer time & fall weeks.
