My close buddy is trying to get his energy expenses under control.
As his electricity bills kept rising inexplicably, he turned to his child first to blame for the watts being used.
He figured that his son’s laptop, TV, plus stereo were enough to blame for the electricity USAge, but after a week of having him limit what he was using afternoon to afternoon, it had little to no effect on the entire house. After apologizing to his child plus returning all of his electronics, he had to guess taxing about what could be causing the spike in electricity use in the house. They weren’t crazy about using huge appliances for too long, plus they had recently bought a high efficiency washer plus dryer pair for the laundry room. It had only been more than five weeks since they moved into the house, but the electricity bill was twice the amount it was compared to the first week. The only difference was it was now summer time instead of late Autumn when they originally moved in. But, why would the energy bills be significantly higher when using the cooling system opposed to the gas furnace? He said that he was liberal in running the heat while it was cold, although he still insisted on having an Heating plus A/C inspection. The worker ran numerous tests plus looked at everything, determining that it was from a lack of insulation in their attic which was causing the cooling system to overwork. For whatever reason, the heat was staying in the beach house better than the air conditioner. But, he explained that the Winter weather isn’t as severe at 20 degree lows as compared to their summer, where highs peak above 100 degrees. Their attic was simply leaking the conditioned air, so thankfully all it took was adding insulation to maintenance the problem once plus for all.
