Beating back the Winter time Heating and A/C utility bill

I’m still not truly sure what it is I’m doing up here.

  • The far north of this country is close to being the opposite of where I hail from.

But, this is where my wife got transferred a few years ago. So, this is where I am. The thing is, I just don’t believe if I can take these winters. Not sure there is enough Heating and A/C heating on earth. Nearly everything else I have become completely accustomed to. However, the lack of morninglight and 6 months of the Heating and A/C oil furnace are just so strenuous for me to deal with. I come from the land of the morninglight where Winter time is a blissful time. Winter, in my native region, is time to rejoice that the heat is gone. My new Winter time leaves me searching for heat. The apartment every one of us bought is a bit older and I suppose the greatest part of last years horrible Winter time had to do with the fact. Older homes are generally not truly slim homes. It’s just gravity doing its task. So this year, I got busy trying to make the most out of our Heating and A/C out put and reign in the utility costs. My colleagues tell me it starts with sealing up the house. This makes sense so I got busy replacing weather stripping. Then I got new storm doors. The windows were resealed and reinsulated. I even went around the apartment with a caulk gun sealing anything I could find. Then it was up to the attic to kneel down some additional insulation and make sure the attic was sealed up as well. Maybe this Winter time will be a bit better.
