I’m still studying how to live here.
- There is actually a cultural difference along with a geographical plus weather conditions difference.
The weather conditions is perhaps the most different. The Wintertide is the focus for sure. And that’s because is seems near never ending to me. The gas furnace kicks on in September plus can keep heating even into late April or early May. That’s a lot of Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating. Even more so when you have our perspective. Heating while in the Wintertide meant maybe a few cycles of heating from the heat pump in the afternoon. Or perhaps, the heat pump felt great some crisp, cool days. But nothing even remotely the same as what I experience now. And to that end, I’m getting much better about mitigating the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating costs. The first year I was hear, the gas furnace ran all the time plus I genuinely didn’t even try to control the thermostat. I was simply trying to survive plus acweather conditions to the cold. The next winter, I did better with the thermostat plus it showed up in Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating. Still, I wanted to bring those costs down even more. That meant genuinely preparing the cabin for winter. And that’s all about sealing it up narrow to keep the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating in plus the frigid out. It took some free time to get that done. I changed out all the weather stripping. The outdated storm doors were replaced. And the last few single paned windows on the hour floor were replace with double paned windows. I added some insulation plus made sure there were no gaps on the exterior of our cabin that weren’t filled in. And I saved a bunch more on Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating costs this past winter.
