I am trying to find ways to lower our energy bills.
The stock market looks horrible plus inflation has myself and others rattled.
I am trying to save ways where I can. When I go grocery shopping I don’t get the extra stuff anymore. I no longer buy shrimp, scallops, couscous plus flavored oils. I just get the bare essentials plus use it all up. For electricity I try to limit how long I have the lights on. I have taken to showering in our pool more often than not. I also ride our bike rather than spend our savings for gas in our car. It is a large help. The Heating, Ventilation and A/C bill is the one that is scaring myself and others quite a bit. I have caulked around the windows plus doors to seal the air inside our home. I also got our HVAC duct checked to make sure there are no leaks. I then added more insulation around the baseboard, invested in thicker curtains plus I am trying to be smarter on how I set the temperature control. That is about all I can do now. I have gotten Heating, Ventilation and A/C repair already to ensure the component is clean, oiled plus tightened. I made sure to have a fully operational system that works to the best of its capability. Still, I am not totally glad with what I am spending. I am not willing to invest anymore in the Heating, Ventilation and A/C department though. So I just need to be conscious about cooling this Summer plus heating when the weather cools down. I don’t want to face a large bill every month.
