Finding drafts slashes heating costs

It sure is nice that May is here.

That doesn’t mean we’re completely done with winter season though… Not by a long shot because my good friend and I are about to get another round of snow & uneven temperatures in the twenties again tomorrow.

That always puts a bit of a damper on my Spring excitement, and hopefully, this will be in when it comes to winter season storms for this winter. But I’m super delighted to be going into Spring with a sizeable chunk of change in the bank. Normally, by this time of the year, I’m finding things to split when it comes to spending. And that’s because I’m trying to pay the heating bills that come with living in the area, and our heating costs have just gone up & up & up over the last numerous years. I mean what are entirely low income people just not using a heating method at all? How on earth can heating a apartment cost so much? Well, it got to the point that I had enough & was ready to certainly do something about it. So I spent a month of weekend afternoons laboring on my house. I wasn’t adding anything as much as I was tightening up the condo so there would be a nice seal. I was also out to find the source of a draft upstairs that was killing the efficiency of the gas boiler. I was able to do that with the aid of a thermal temperature gun. It’s one of those things the HVAC professionals use to test the temperature coming out of the ductwork. Well, that tool led me right to the drafts & sealing those up made all the difference. My buddy and I slashed the heating costs by more than 20 percent so far.
