A few weeks ago my roommate approached me with a brand new idea for saving extra money.
- She said she has been doing research for a while about reducing our indoor energy expenditure every month.
We have been paying rather high energy bills for our routine utilities every month. Both of us have been trying to save up cash for quite a while but we are having a hard time when the energy company was draining our accounts every month. We knew that we needed to reduce our energy expenditure but it was difficult when the outdoor climate is so miserable all the time. We were keeping our air conditioner on relatively low but it was still rather expensive to keep the cooling system running 24/7. My roommate decided that the time to cut our air conditioning abuse was now. We weren’t going to use the central AC system everyday anymore. Apparently, this would save us a ton of money if we could cut our cooling system usage at least 50%. I asked how we were going to accomplish this air-conditioning feat and we decided there were two good options. We could either remember to turn off the AC unit every single time we left the house so that the cooling system didn’t operate all day long. Otherwise, we could use the cooling system for half of the days of the week. Both of these air quality issues sounded pretty terrible… But then again so do our sky high on energy bills. I guess you must suffer to make progress, including with your air conditioning system.
