My fiance and I had to get genuinely serious about our spending during the pandemic.
While all of us were lucky to keep our jobs and labor from the cooling system of home, all of us had to take serious pay cuts as well.
Every one of us were already not saving enough because of our spending habit and lack of budget discipline. So in a way, this was a fine thing that all of us started paying more attention to just what all of us were spending. One of the things that all of us targeted that first few weeks back in 2020 was the Heating and Air Conditioning cooling costs. In our region, the Heating and Air Conditioning heating costs are pretty much negligible. The heat pump barely even comes on during the winter. However, that’s so not the case when it comes to summer. Actually, for a lot of people in this area, the cooling system will come on mid May. And the Heating and Air Conditioning cooling can stay on til November in most cases. However, it’s the stretch from June through November that genuinely hits the pocketbook. That’s why all of us made that 1 of our first spending targets. I sealed up the house adore I saw online at our Heating and Air Conditioning business’s blog. Every one of us also made sure to pull curtains in order to stop the direct sunlight heating as well. But truly, the big difference is getting a plan for the temperature control setting. Every one of us figured out how to program the temperature control ourselves with some trial and error. Then all of us settled on keeping the inside of the house no more than 15 degrees cooler than the outside temperature during peak heating hours. What a significant savings all of us saw over the worst area of the Heating and Air Conditioning cooling year.
