It was costing more and more to cool our home

It feels like the prices of everything are becoming higher and higher.

And to be honest, it’s hard to keep up.

For instance, my partner and I would do so much shopping with $1000 a few years ago. Most of the items we bought were enough to last the entire month. But, now we find ourselves returning to the shops often to add more items. The same applies to fresh foods, and even things like fuel. Everyone keeps saying we are on the verge of a recession, and all the signs are there. We hope that things get better, but we aren’t holding our breath. The best thing to do has been to cut our spending budget. Now, we are even forgoing eating out and ordering meals. Instead, we meal-prep at home and strive to stick to a budget each week. The other day, we were doing our monthly budget and noted we are spending so much to cool our home. Each summer month, the bill got higher and higher, and it was twice as high one time when we had a severe heat wave. That prompted us to find ways to keep our home cool without needing to run the AC the entire time. A friend sent us an article from a HVAC blog with tips on how to lower your cooling costs. We found most of the suggestions to be practical, and chose to implement some. First, we’d have the AC running less when we were at work. In addition, we got heavier drapes to keep the sun out, and the house cool. We also had an HVAC expert come do a tune up to ensure the unit was working efficiently. So far, so good.
