It seems every spring my wife comments on the weather as “crazy and
unusual for this time of year”. In fact, the sudden changes of cold and
warm days during the shoulder season are quite normal. The average
daily temperature of 61 degrees in New York during the month of May has
been the same for the past twenty years, give or take a few degrees.
an HVAC contractor, I try to stay informed of the temperature and
future weather patterns. As spring approaches, being aware of the
weather allows me to anticipate future work load and prevent unnecessary
frustration for my customers. It also reminds me of the urgency to
complete the seasonal inspections in a timely manner and to prepare the
service department to gear up for a hectic few weeks.
