For sure, I’m right in the middle of our favorite time of year.
The central air conditioner is kicking on a bit more now that we’re heading into July.
That’s just great with myself and others because I care about the summer. Where we live, there is just not enough Summer weather to suit me. Of course, our Summer weather is nothing compared to the blast furnace that our southern neighbors deal with. In fact, the apartment I grew up in had no central air conditioner at all. Frankly, I can see how central air conditioner can be viewed as a luxury. But I’m absolutely getting out of the air conditioner a bit more in order to get things ready for winter. I had a wood stove installed this Springtime. Finally, I’m getting absolutely serious about tackling the high cost of Heating plus A/C heating. The wood stove will function as both a supplemental heating source and an emergency source of heating. This will save a bunch of money when it comes to paying the utility bills while I was in our long, cold winter. But I’m not stopping at just the supplemental heat source. I’m making the necessary preparation when it comes to the apartment as well. This is overdue really. I’ve been meaning to seal up the apartment far before I decided on the wood stove. So I’m taking parts of the Summer to get out of the air conditioner plus seal up the exterior of the house, add more insulation plus substitute all the weather stripping as well. I guess all of this effort is entirely going to pay off. I’m so excited to see what sort of savings I receive for our efforts.
