I’m not a high motor sort of guy.
This is not a shock to anyone who knows me.
When it comes to taking care of stuff like going to work plus taking care of my family, I’m pretty steady. But past that, it take a lot of motivation just to get my off the couch plus out of the a/c at home. So it’s not too surprising to me that this past Fall was the first time that I particularly did something in order to save on our heating bills this Winter. That’s right, I made the effort plus it paid off. My partner was the first one to recognize my efforts. She noticed last fall when I was out there sealing up the home in order to improve the efficiency of the gas furnace. And she was with me the other afternoon as we totaled up the heating costs for the Winter. I got a giant attaboy when the final numbers came in. As a result of my efforts when it came to winterizing the house, we saved just over 20 percent on heating costs so far this Winter; Essentially, winter time weather is pretty much done where we are. But it’s still not hot here plus the gas furnace runs a bit at evening. So maybe those numbers are a bit preliminary however I guess we can count on at least a 20 percent savings when it comes to the heating this Winter. That’s pretty remarkable for putting in numerous hours over a few weekends during the Fall. Who knows, maybe this success will get me more motivated to get other things around the home done. But I would not hold your breath.
