Our new mission

My husband has decided that he wants to save money on our energy bill. I am all for saving money, but I feel that if we are really going to do this then we need to go all in. We are having solar panels installed to our roof next week, this is something we have been wanting to do for years and we are finally in a position to do it. In addition to having solar panels installed, we are also also replacing all of our windows with energy star windows, and the same with our doors. All of our kitchen appliances are already energy star rated, so those are things we don’t need to upgrade and worry about. We are planning on purchasing a new washer and dryer in a few months so we can upgrade to energy start laundry setup. The last thing is our HVAC system. We already own an energy star and a newer model HVAC system so luckily we don’t need to have that upgraded. We replaced our HVAC system two years ago so we wont have to worry about upgrading that for awhile. We do need to have our HVAC technician out to our home for his annual visit though just to make sure everything is in tip top shape. It would be a waste to go to all of this trouble to make our home more energy efficient if we didn’t keep up with the maintenance of our HVAC system. If we decided to neglect the maintenance of our HVAC system then that would cause our HVAC system to work even harder and it wouldn’t last as long either and we can’t have that.

We need to control temperature and air quality

When our roommates and I moved all of our stuff into an older lake house for rent, both of us were honestly pleased by the tasteful modern updates to the otherwise dated structure. Though the arena was definitely built in the 1950s, the owners had updated the home office and even went and updated to all modern Anderson windows throughout the home. Modern windows can mean a immense savings in lake house heating costs during the winter, regardless of what kind of central heating idea your lake house runs on. However, unfortunately this did not mean both of us were exempt from error. Our new rental lake house is pretty far out in the country, so both of us almost never worry enough to lock up our windows at night. This became our undoing recently when both of us woke up a single morning after a particularly severe Winter storm overnight. My roommate and I got up to let our little pet out, only to find that the raging wind from the Noreaster was so strong it had actually opened our windows in the night. It had even managed to transfer the old screens aside and push snow into the house. This meant our awful oil gas furnace was just producing and pushing hot air outside while both of us had slept… You should always take care to lock your doors and windows during the middle of the night and morning throughout Winter… Closing them is clearly not enough to keep out the cold air, as this definitely does not seal the closure completely, then locking your windows applies additional helpful pressure against the windows, entirely working to hold the window against the window sealants and eliminate drafts. Whether your lake house runs on a traditional gas furnace or an electric heater, be sure to lock your windows up each and every Winter season.

I began to realize the truth

When my many roommates plus I moved into an older beach house for rent in town, the two of us were absolutely satisfied by the current updates to the otherwise quite dated structure. Though the place was built in the 1950s, the owners had updated the entire kitchen plus even took upon the absolutely pricey task of installing many all new Anderson windows throughout the home. That was great, because modern windows can mean a huge savings in beach house heating and cooling costs, regardless of what kind of central heating or cooling proposal your house runs on. However, this did not actually mean the two of us were exempt from error. Our house is pretty far out in the country, so obviously, the two of us almost never think to lock up our windows at night. This became our undoing one fateful night when the two of us woke up a single day after a particularly drastic Wintertime storm. My roommate plus just I got up to let our little barking dog out, only to find that the wind from the Noreaster was so strong it had opened our living room windows in the night. It had even managed to move the screens aside somehow, plus push snow into the house. This meant our poor oil gas furnace apparently was just pushing air outside while the two of us had slept through the night. We know now that you should always take care to lock your doors plus windows up tightly while the two of us were in the night plus day throughout Wintertime. It turns out that closing them is not enough to keep out the freezing air, as this does not seal the surrounding closure completely. Locking your windows applies additional pressure against the actual windows, finally working to hold the window against the sealants plus eliminate drafts. Whether your old house runs on a gas gas furnace or an electric heater, be sure to lock up your windows up slender each plus every Wintertime season.

Let’s lower the levels

When our old roommates plus I moved into an older home for rent down the street, every one of us were certainly pleased by the current updates that had been made to the otherwise dated structure. Though the locale was built way back in the 1950s, the owners had updated the kitchen plus even took upon the certainly lavish job of even installing all new Anderson windows throughout the home. This was actually a single of the deciding factors when every one of us moved in– we knew that modern windows can mean a sizable savings in home heating costs, even regardless of what kind of central heating plan your home runs on or the age of the system. However, this did not mean every one of us were exempt from error entirely. Our home is pretty far out in the country, so every one of us almost never really bother to lock up our windows at night. This became our undoing one day when every one of us woke up a single afternoon after a certainly serious Winter storm blew through. My roommate plus I got up to let our little dog out, only to find that the intense wind from the Noreaster was so strong it had opened our windows right up in the night. It had even managed to traninterest the screens aside plus push snow directly into the house. This meant our exhausting oil oil furnace was just pushing hot air outside while every one of us had slept, but you should always take care to carefully lock your doors plus windows while in the night plus day every day, and throughout Winter especially.

All we did was lock our windows

Whenever our roommates and I moved into an older apartment for rent last year, every one of us were undoubtedly content by the current updates to the otherwise very dated structure. This was a single of the huge deciding factors when every one of us moved in–we wanted to make sure we would live anywhere that was built to withstand our serious winters, without us constantly having to DIY the apartment with shrink wrap on the windows and another round of door pads each and every year. Modern windows in a place can mean a important savings in apartment heating costs, regardless of what particular kind of central gas furnace your apartment runs on. However, this obviously did not mean every one of us were exempt from error. Our apartment is located pretty far out in the country, so every one of us almost never even try to lock up our windows at evening. This became our undoing eventually, when every one of us woke up a single day after a certainly serious Wintertime storm. My roommate and I both got up to let our little pet out, only to find that the wind from the huge Noreaster was so strong it had opened our windows in the evening. It had even managed to completely transfer the screens aside and push snow into the house. Locking your windows applies additional pressure against the actual windows, working to hold the window against the sealants and eliminate further drafts. Whether your apartment runs on a gas oil furnace or even electric heater, be sure to lock your windows up no matter what, each and every Wintertime season.

We should lock all the windows

When my roommates and I moved into an older home for rent, we were very pleased by the modern updates to the otherwise dated structure. Though the place was built in the 1950s, the owners had updated the kitchen and even took upon the very expensive task of installing all new Anderson windows throughout the home. This was one of the deciding factors when we moved in–we wanted to live somewhere that was built to withstand our harsh winters, without constantly having to DIY the house with shrink wrap and another round of door pads each and every year. Modern windows can mean a huge savings in home heating costs, regardless of what kind of central heating system your house runs on. However, this did not mean we were exempt from error. Our house is pretty far out in the country, so we almost never think to lock up our windows at night. This became our undoing when we woke up one morning after a particularly harsh winter storm.

You should always take care to lock your doors and windows during the night and day throughout winter. Closing them is not enough to keep out the cold air, as this does not seal the closure completely. Locking your windows applies additional pressure against the windows, working to hold the window against the sealants and eliminate drafts. Whether your house runs on a gas furnace or an electric heater, be sure to lock your windows up tight each and every winter season.

Traveling and issues

Traveling for your task is something that many people have come to absolutely dread. I used to like having an excuse for myself to get away from town for a few days, but now I get absolutely fed up and exhausted by my journeys. I only have to take a task trip about once a month, but all of that long time in airports as well as sitting in rental vehicle lines wears me down pretty quickly. The worst area of it all is having to adapt to the air conditioner situations. In the local airport, I have found that the cooling system is always running at far too high of a speed. I get cold actually because the indoor temperatures there are too low for my liking. This makes it difficult in particular when I have a long layover or a delay on my flight, and only a couple of times over the past several years, I have ended up in rental cars that had faulty air conditioners installed. I know this was just a string of exhausting luck for me, but, still, that was a huge inconvenience for me, by the time I made it to my hotel directly from the airport both times, I was covered in sweat as well as had actually little extra energy left to get any task done. If not for the air conditioner inconveniences which historically I have dealt with while traveling, I don’t suppose that I would be so put off each time by the system of it. However, those handful of incidents have totally changed my way of thinking.

Traveling all around the world

Traveling constantly for task is something that I have come to really dread after years of doing it. I used to like having an excuse to get away from my particular city for a few afternoons, but now I get really tired by our journeys. I only have to take a task trip perhaps about once a month, but all of the time in airports plus sitting in rental automobile lines wears myself and others down. The worst area of it all is having to easily adapt to the air conditioner situations. In the airport, I have now consistently found that the cooling plan is always running at too high of a speed. I get so chilly because the hot plus cold temperatures that they have there are too low for our liking. This makes it difficult when I have a particularly long layover or a delay on our flight. A couple of times over the past year, actually, I have ended up in rental cars that had faulty a/cs. I think this bad AC was just a string of awful luck, but, still, that was a big inconvenience each time for me; By the time I made it to our hotel from the airport at both times this happened, I was covered in sweat plus had particularly little energy left to even try to get any task done. If not for the air conditioner inconveniences that I have dealt with routinely while traveling, I don’t suppose that I would be nearly as put off by the plan of it. However, those handful of incidents have changed our normal way of thinking. I really wish that I could limit our traveling to just a couple of times each year, however I don’t see that becoming an choice anytime soon.

I don’t mind renting

Traveling for work is something that I know most people have mixed feelings about. Personally, it is something that I have come to truly dread. I used to take great satisfaction having an excuse to get away from neighborhood each day for a few afternoons, however now I get truly exhausted by our journeys out of here. I only have to take a work trip about once a week, however all of the time spent in airports and laying in rental motorcar lines wears myself and others down pretty quickly. The worst area of it all is having to adapt to the air conditioning situations everywhere I go. In the airport, I have found that the cooling system in particular is consistently running at too high of a speed. I get chilly each and every time there, because the un-even temperatures there are too low for our liking each time. This makes it hard when I have a long layover or a delay on our flight that day, but only a couple of times over the past year, I have ended up in rental cars that had truly faulty air conditionings. I think this was just a string of bad luck for me personally, but, still, that was a large inconvenience for me! By the time I made it right back to our hotel from the airport both times, I was covered in sweat and had really very little energy left to get any work done. If not for the air conditioning inconveniences on my plate that I have dealt with while traveling, I don’t feel that I would be so totally put off by the idea of it. However, those handful of incidents have entirely changed our way of thinking. I truly wish that I could limit our traveling really down to just a couple of times per year, but I don’t see that becoming a major opportunity anytime soon.

A/C travel woes

Traveling for work is something that I have come to really dread. I used to enjoy having an excuse to get away from town for a few days, but now I get really exhausted by my journeys. I only have to take a work trip about once a month, but all of the time in airports and standing in rental car lines wears me down. The worst part of it all is having to adapt to the A/C situations. In the airport, I have found that the cooling system is always running at too high of a speed. I get cold easily because the temperatures there are too low for my liking. This makes it difficult when I have a long layover or a delay on my flight. A couple of times over the past year, I have ended up in rental cars that had faulty air conditioners. I think this was just a string of poor luck, but, still, that was a huge inconvenience for me. By the time I made it to my hotel from the airport both times, I was covered in sweat and had very little energy left to get any work done. If not for the A/C inconveniences that I have dealt with while traveling, I don’t know that I would be so put off by the idea of it. However, those handful of incidents have changed my way of thinking. I really wish that I could limit my traveling to just a couple of times per year, but I don’t see that becoming an option anytime soon.
