Taking energy saving measures

My local section experiences many separate seasons.

There are benefits to the variety of weather.

Both of us like months of warmth and sunshine & frigid and snow. Both of us get to swim and kayak & snowmobile and ski. The Autumn leaves are lovely, and the ripe tomato, tomatoes, zucchini, grapes and pears at that time of year are delicious. In the Spring, we look forward to the tulips, daffodils, hyacinth and lilacs. Our temperature can swing from negative twenty more than four to the upper nineties. Both of us deal with excessive & insufficient humidity, high winds, bitter wind chill and torrential downpours. The year round weather extremes make heating and cooling especially pressing. Temperature control adds up to about fifty percent of our household energy bills. I am constantly on the lookout for up-to-date and better ways to minimize energy waste and reduce costs. I have installed Energy Star rated, thermal pane windows and meticulously caulked around them. I’ve upgraded the exterior doors and added weather stripping to eliminate drafts. I spent a weekend installing insulation into the attic. It was a hot, dirty and annoyed job but it absolutely helped to improve the comfort and efficiency of the home. The attic works as a barrier between the living space and the outdoor elements. Because heat tends to travel to cooler locations, it helps to keep the attic cooler in the summer time and warmer in the winter. I installed ceiling fans to push the heat down from the ceiling in the Winter time and encourage the heat up and out in the summer. I’ve also enrolled into a maintenance method with a licensed Heating and A/C corporation. A specialist takes care of complicationshooting, inspecting and decreasing the heating and cooling machine to maximize efficiency and avoid malfunction.
