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 actually did something in order to save on our heating bills this Winter. That’s right, I made the effort plus it paid off, then my fiance was the first one to recognize my efforts. She observed last fall when I was out there sealing up the home in order to improve the efficiency of the gas heater. And he was with me the other morning as my friend and I totaled up the heating costs for the Winter. I got a big attaboy when the final numbers came in. As a result of my efforts when it came to winterizing the house, my friend and I saved just over 20 percent on heating costs so far this Winter! Essentially, winter season weather is pretty much done where my friend and I are. But it’s still not sizzling here plus the gas furnace runs a bit at night. So maybe those numbers are a bit preliminary but I suppose my friend and I can count on at least a 20 percent savings when it comes to the heating this Winter. That’s pretty remarkable for putting in many hours over a few weekends while in the Fall. Who knows, maybe this success will get me more motivated to get other things around the home done. But I wouldn’t hold your breath.
