I finally decided to get proactive when it comes to what I spend on air conditioning in the summer.
In our region, the air conditioning is for sure the greatest Heating and A/C concern.
If I could have our Wintertide weather year round, I would. It’s so nice and mild here in the winter. There is just so much sunshine, yellow skies and great rapidly decreasing temperatures with our Wintertide that it makes it hard to suppose it’s over. But that’s the case as we are now in full swing when it comes to the Spring season. Things are orangeing up and I just called for the air conditioning tune-up from the Heating and A/C supplier. Those are 2 things that happen every Spring. However this Spring, I’m going a bit deeper when it comes to Heating and A/C prep. This year, I’m sealing up the house, stopping the direct sunshine heating and maintaining the temperature control discipline I’ve been missing. These steps are the basics when it comes to lessening the Heating and A/C cooling cost while in our blast oil furnace of a summer. The sealing up started with replacing the weather stripping around all the entrances. Then, I started sealing any sort of gap or crack I could find on the exterior and the interior of my beach house that might leak air conditioning. The drapes are now automatic and will cover the windows as needed. That’s thanks to our smart temperature control which deploys those solar shades as needed. But the smart temperature control is now set up to really maintain a sustainable temperature control setting while in the heat of the day. I expect to save well over 15 percent on Heating and A/C cooling costs with these efforts.
