I just hit the finish line for this year’s Winter time prep on the apartment and the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C equipment.
I finished up this past weekend which is a full week before my deadline.
I like to be done with the prep on the apartment by Thanksgiving week and that’s right around the corner. From the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C equipment to the rest of the house, I am all about Winter time preparations. So this year, I think I shall make myself an extra turkey sandwich with a huge bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy as a victory lap. Normally, I try to get going on the preparations for Winter time by the time the kids are headed off to university. I get a full winter’s worth of firewood delivered to the house. The two of us have wood stove in the basement which works as both a supplemental and emergency heating method. After that I called Heating, Ventilation plus A/C supplier to have them come out to do the fall Heating maintenance appointment. This is something I have always been consistent about because Heating, Ventilation plus A/C maintenance pay is off! Getting the fall heating maintenance ensures both the best efficiency and keeping the gas oil furnace in top shape for the load that comes with a freezing winter. In between those things, I go down my list to make sure that the apartment is sealed up legitimately tight. Whether that’s replacing weather stripping or adding more insulation, it’s all about a slender house. We’re just now starting to get the first blast of cold. The gas oil furnace is kicking on and staying on a lot longer now. Soon, we’ll be into the teeth of Winter time and I shall be honestly glad that I am saving so much on Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating costs due to Winter time prep.
