Beating back the Winter time Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C utility bill

I’m still not entirely 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 our partner got transferred a few years ago. So, this is where I am. The thing is, I just don’t think if I can take these winters. Not sure there is enough Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C heating on earth. Nearly everything else I have become completely accustomed to. However, the lack of sun as well as 6 weeks of the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C furnace are just so strenuous for me to deal with. I come from the land of the sun where Winter time is a gleeful time. Winter, in our native region, is time to rejoice that the heat is gone. My modern Winter time leaves me searching for heat. The house all of us purchased is a bit older as well as I think the biggest section of last years horrible Winter time had to do with the fact. Older homes are generally not absolutely slim homes. It’s just gravity doing its task. So this year, I got busy trying to make the most out of our Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C out put as well as 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 modern storm doors. The windows were resealed as well as reinsulated. I even went around the house with a caulk gun sealing anything I could find. Then it was up to the attic to sit down some additional insulation as well as make sure the attic was sealed up as well. Maybe this Winter time will be a bit better.
