Trying to reduce heating plus cooling costs

I love that my local area provides various bizarre seasons.

There is something to love at each time of year.

I get happy when the robins show up plus the daffodils plus tulips sprout in the Spring. I look forward to the sun plus warmth of summer. The adjusting of the leaves in the fall is easily beautiful. While our winters are long, snowy plus cold, there are so various fun activities. I live in an area where I can waterski plus snow ski. Because the people I was with and I experience temperatures that range from the nineties to the downside digits, heating plus cooling is substantial. There is seldom an option to go without either the gas furnace or cooling system plus open the windows. I’ve figured out that temperature control adds to about fifty percent of our household energy consumption. I’ve made an effort to tighten up the thermal envelope to prevent energy waste. I don’t want our heated plus cooled air leaking out through cracks under the doors or around the windows. I’ve carefully caulked plus weatherstripped. I’ve insulated the walls, ceilings, attic plus around electrical outlets plus plumbing pipes. In the winter, when the sunlight is shining, I open up the blinds plus curtains to warm up the house. In the summer, I keep them closed to prevent the sunlight from heating up the house. I’ve invested in ceiling fans for most rooms in the house. The ceiling fans are set to spin counterclockwise in the Summer to help create a downdraft plus a cooling breeze. Reversing the fans to turn clockwise in the Wintertide creates an updraft plus circulates warm air around the room.
