I know it’s full on summer time and the central air conditioning has kicked on while in the heat of the morning and into each night. Still, I can’t quite get over how awesome it was this past Wintertide to enjoy a warm, cozy house without sizable HVAC heating bills. I’m still thinking about it and I’m still sort of proud that our efforts paid off. Since every one of us bought this house, I had intentions that were fine when it came to Wintertide prep. But our fine intentions sort of got sidetracked by our laziness. Fall weekends had been pretty sacred for myself and others most of our life. I’ve typically been such a crucial football fan that I seemed to get even more obsessed with every current year. So the more football I watched from the HVAC comfort of our entryway, the less time there was for Wintertide prep. And of course, I spent the rest of the Wintertide complaining about the high price of HVAC heating. That behavior finally came to an end this past fall. This was the first fall that I completely committed to doing the necessary Wintertide prep to save on heating costs. And it was way easier than I had thought it might be. All I had to do was follow the directions from the HVAC supplier website. I was able to seal up the house in no time and still catch the late day football games. The heating costs were reduced so dramatically that I’m still talking about as the central air conditioning is now the topic of HVAC conversations.
