I used to live down in the South and I wasn’t prepared for what the weather is like up north.
- I got a really nice home that has two heating sources and a pretty nice A/C system.
I was so used to having a powerful A/C system and I was already thinking about having it tuned up. I wasn’t thinking so much about my heating systems though. I actually wondered why I would need a fireplace and a gas furnace. When I got into the winter months, I learned the hard way about how crucial it is to have multiple sources of heating in the winter months. I was actually late but I ended up having my gas furnace tuned up so that there wouldn’t be any issues moving through the winter. While I thought I would be alright with just my gas furnace, I was shocked at how expensive my gas bill was. Then a neighbor came over to talk to me and he was giving me a bunch of energy saving tips. He told me to put plastic up on all of my windows, which was a really good way to prevent the heat from escaping. He also said I should use my fireplace as much as possible and I should use a smart thermostat for my HVAC system. It turns out that you save up to 15% on your energy bills just by using a smart thermostat. With these energy saving tips, I have been saving a good amount of money. I wish I would have known about this stuff before I moved here.
