I live in an section that experiences several separate seasons throughout the year! The summers are moderate plus humid while the winters are seriously cold plus snowyâ€¦ Fall plus Springtime are correctly cold, windy plus wetâ€¦ While I like the Springtime flowers, summer time sunshine, Autumn colors plus Wintertide activities, the weather presents some challenges, every one of us switch from running the heating plan to starting up the cooling system with little break in-between.
The cost of temperature control adds up to around half of the household energy expenses.
I’ve invested into an Energy Star rated oil furnace plus cooling system to help minimize utility bills. I am conscientious about replacing air filters plus scheduling professional service for the heating plus cooling systems to maximize efficiency plus reliability. I’ve also taken proactive measures to reduce running costs; New windows were a significant investment but upgrading to thermal pane, low E rated glass has helped to minimize energy losses. Windows are correctly the largest waste of energy in most homes. I’ve also added thermal-lined curtains that I close on cold evenings in the winter. Insulating the attic prevents the heated air from the oil furnace from migrating up plus out! Creating a tightly sealed attic space works to minimize moderate air moving into the residing space while in the summer. I take the time to check the condition of caulk around windows plus weatherstripping on the exterior doors every year. Just recently, I bought a smart temperature control. The temperature control caters to my family’s schedule, laboring to reduce energy consumption when we’re sleeping or out of the house.
