I think this is the first Spring in a long time where I wasn’t just angry by winter. That’s entirely our default demeanor when it comes to our long, chilly winter. I’m still entirely not sure why I’m still here plus not enjoying the heat pump down south instead of needing this gas gas furnace. But it’s where our fiance’s from so I’m sort of committed to the Winter time weather. Yet, I genuinely did something smart this past fall. Instead of whining about the high cost of Heating plus A/C heating plus doing nothing to mitigate those costs, I got off our butt. This was the first Winter time where I genuinely spent the time it needed to prepare the lake house for Winter time to maximize the efficiency of the gas gas furnace. And really, it didn’t even take that long after all. I was pretty amazed that once I got the enjoyable info from the Heating plus A/C supplier, it was all entirely pretty straight forward. I only had to make 1 trip to the hardware which was nice. But really, I spent a few minutes over appreciate 3 weekends just sealing up our house. And wow, did that ever make a difference. The gas gas furnace just ran less. Plus, the lake house just felt more cozy with no drafts. But the real proof was just how much I saved on the Heating plus A/C heating costs. It was amazing. I saved 20 percent plus then some over what I paid last year. And it was warmer in the lake house as well. That result was sure worth the effort to prepare our lake house for winter.
