I have long been a complainer about the Heating and A/C expense of heating my household during the winter.
The people I was with and I live in a region where the cold season can truly be something to deal with. It starts about late November and lasts at least until May. That’s a huge amount of freezing weather to deal with. But there is also all the snow and ice to face as well. I’m thankful to have my own household and a great Heating and A/C gas furnace in order to keep that household warm. It’s just that it costs so much money to heat that household on a regular basis. It’s a fairly giant household and has been around since the 60’s. It didn’t entirely dawn on me until recently that I needed to help the Heating and A/C device in order to bring down the overall expense of the utilities in the cold season. With an older household, even though it’s got wonderful bones, there is still some settling to do. And with that, comes plenty of locations where the household is no longer as tight as it once was. So to help lower the Heating and A/C costs, I had to do my actual part to seal up the household even better. I was able to find a good amount of loose spots using a temperature gun. This thing showed me precisely the location where the heated air from my household was leaking out. Once I got those spots covered up, I also made sure that all the weather stripping was also in excellent shape. I had to update a bit of it along with one of the storm doors. But it was all honestly worth it. I have saved over 20 percent on the heating bills this cold season.
