All I can remember about the Winter time before was that I just never felt adore I was getting enough from the gas oil furnace.
But then again, the first Winter time up here was a bit of a blur in general.
The combination of a new position with new responsibilities and the biting freezing were a bit overwhelming. As for the office, I just did my best to stay late, do more and undoubtedly learn and understand my new position. There were plenty of long evenings inside the commercial Heating and Air Conditioning of that office. And to be sure, I had a space heating system with myself and others everywhere I went; Really though, the freezing here is unlike anything I could have ever imagined. There are days where I walk out of the heating comfort of my lake condo to nearly have my breath stolen by the level of freezing here. If I ever get back south, I’m never complaining about a Summer that is too hot and needs too much a/c. But I can’t even let the thoughts of a mild Winter time with a heat pump enter my mind. Otherwise, it just makes this situation all the more painful. However, I believe I did score a win in Winter time number several. With the help of my neighbor, I l earned how to seal up my condo to maximize the efficiency of the gas oil furnace. I followed just what he told myself and others and it worked. I was much warmer this Winter time with a much lower thermostat setting. We’ve still got plenty of Winter time left however so far, I believe I’ve saved nearly 20 percent on heating costs.
