This crappy old house…. I’m taking about the one I’m living in, It’s old, very old, it was build in the late 40’s as a summer home, so you can imagine they did not put much thought into insulating it. Our energy bill during the first winter was between $350.00-$420.00 per month and we only had the thermostat set to a frigid 60 degrees. If we raised it any higher the heater wouldn’t stop running. I froze that year with my wool hat, scarf and gloves on at all times. This enormous financial drain and the fact that I was freezing for months lead me to research methods of improving my homes envelop. Over the last 4 years I have be improving said envelop and now our bill is around $94.00 a month although we still keep it at a cool 65 degree during the day and 56 degree at night. I’m much richer and I don’t need the wool accessory too. If you would like to know how you could keep the green in your pocket ask me how.
