I just hit the finish line for this year’s Wintertide prep on the lake house & the Heating, Ventilation & 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 lake house by Thanksgiving week & that’s right around the corner. From the Heating, Ventilation & A/C device to the rest of the house, I am all about Wintertide preparations. So this year, I know I willmake myself an extra turkey sandwich with a big bowl of mashed potatoes & gravy as a victory lap. Normally, I try to get going on the preparations for Wintertide by the time the youngsters are headed off to school. 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 & emergency heating method. After that I called Heating, Ventilation & A/C company to have them come out to do the fall Heating service appointment. This is something I’ve consistently been consistent about because Heating, Ventilation & A/C service spend money is off, getting the fall heating service ensures both the best efficiency and keeping the gas oil furnace in top shape for the load that comes with a cold winter. In between those things, I go down my list to make sure that the lake house is sealed up undoubtedly tight. Whether that has 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 & staying on a lot longer now. Soon, we’ll be into the teeth of Wintertide & I willbe unquestionably blissful that I am saving so much on Heating, Ventilation & A/C heating costs due to Wintertide prep.
