Why is Colorado Springs a Great Place to Live?
Colorado Springs is a great place to live whether you are single or married with a family. With low humidity and 243 sunny days per year, Colorado Springs’ weather is one of the many reasons residents love living here. Living at this elevation and in this mountain climate means you’ll need to get used to wearing layers—and you’ll always find Colorado Springs attractions to enjoy year-round.
- Go hiking or ride horses at the Garden of the Gods.
- Try rock climbing or paragliding at Red Rock Canyon.
- Take a day trip to hike, bike, or drive your way up Colorado Spring’s grandest geological feature, Pikes Peak.
- Explore the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park on foot, gondola, train, or by hot air balloon. And you can also enjoy whitewater rafting at the Royal Gorge!
- Raise your heart rate by taking on the Manitou Incline—a one-mile stretch of stairs, that gains 2,000 feet in elevation.
- Tour an intricate cave system at the Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.
- Hike a registered National Natural Landmark Garden of the Gods.
- Take the family and explore Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, which consistently ranks within the top ten best zoos in the nation, because it has fascinating animals you’d expect in a big zoo.
Colorado Springs’ metro area elevations vary by approximately 3000 feet; 5545 to 8465 feet. The high elevation and dry climate make this an exceptional place for using Whole House Fans. Afternoon highs and night time lows vary by 20-30 degrees, with highs generally in the 80s and lows in the 50-60s. Once the sun goes down over Pikes Peak, temperatures begin to fall rapidly so that you can open your windows, turn on your Fan and cool your home naturally with cool, clean mountain air. Many homes do not have AC and the addition of a Whole House Fan makes the issue of “Should I add AC to my home?”, a moot point. We have lived in our home for 5 years and never turn on the AC. We love our Whole House Fan, and we guarantee that you will love yours!
