Before summer comes, I want to make sure that we are going to be able to make the most of our HVAC system.
Last year during the summer, our cooling bills were always very high and I would prefer not to go through that again! I’m not really sure what caused our cooling bills to be higher than usual last year, but I’m pretty sure that it had something to do with the record breaking temperatures that we had outside around here last year.
Still, though, our high efficiency air conditioning system shouldn’t have ended up costing us all that much to keep the house at a comfortable temperature throughout the summer. It was really bad! The cooling bills were so expensive that we ended up foregoing our beach vacation last summer and I am not about to do that again this year. I really need to get to the beach to relax. That’s why this year, I’m going to make sure that we are going to be making the absolute most of our high efficiency air conditioning system. I’m going through the house, checking for all kinds of cracks and gaps in our caulking, windows, and doors. If I find anywhere that the air conditioning can leak out, I am going to be filling it in with caulk! I’m also going to make sure that our A/C unit is in top working order so I’m going to have our HVAC company come out and do an A/C tune up before the weather starts heating up much more.
