The utilities in my village are owned by the local government. I know it is a pretty large resite stream for them, if my electric bill is any indication. I try to conserve both water plus electricity, however even when I am legitimately careful my village bills can be so discouraging. I have consistently known that the greatest portion of the electric usage in a lake house is the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system. Anything that makes your heating system or air conditioning system work harder is costing you cash. Because of that, I called in the specialist to do an energy audit of my house. I don’t own the house, I rent, but I was hoping there would be some simple things I could do to save on heating plus cooling plus other things that could decrease my energy footprint. It turns out there were a few things after all. First, there are small cracks between the bottom of the doors plus the floor. Those allow the air conditioning system plus heating to escape, which means my central heating plus cooling idea has to work longer plus harder. The guy advised I purchase inexpensive draft dodgers to venue there. Second, the climate control/energy auditor showed myself and others that the caulking around my windows was looking pretty pathetic. To help my a/c out even more, I should re-caulk the windows. He looked at my air filter, plus much to my delight, he was ecstatic that it wasn’t dirty. I do change the a/c air filters officially! Go me! He did also say that the central heating plus cooling device I have does not have a high SEER rating, however there is nothing I can do about that.
