In my local area, the weather is a year round challenge, then it’s not unofficial for the temperature to drop well below zero in the Winter as well as remain there for several weeks, however the two of us endure brutal wind chill as well as endless amounts of snow.
The cold conditions properly last for approximately more than five weeks.
Both the Spring as well as fall seasons are usually cold as well as rainy as well as require us to rely on the furnace! While our summers tend to be brief, they are extremely hot as well as humid. Between running the oil furnace as well as , the cost of temperature control is about 50% of my bi-weekly bi-weekly bills. That expense is a fine reason to be on the lookout for energy saving opportunities. I continually search for up-to-date ways to reduce the workload of the heating as well as cooling equipment. I try to eliminate energy waste wherever possible. I recently spent a actually unpleasant weekend removing the outdated insulation from my attic as well as replacing it with new. The insulation had become dirty, damp as well as compromised by rodents. The job of removing it was horrible. The attic was terribly overheated as well as stuffy. The high temperature convinced me that the insulation was no longer providing a adequate barrier against the outdoor conditions, then since heat naturally travels to a cooler space, this created a problem in both Winter as well as summer. The heat from the attic was making the whole house believe warmer in the Summer yet stealing our heated air while I was in the winter. While the project was dirty as well as time-consuming, replacing the insulation in the attic made a large difference in my heating as well as cooling costs. I’ve also invested in thermal pane Energy Star rated windows as well as exterior doors.
