I called my local HVAC company and talked to one of the HVAC technicians.
I just can’t believe how high my heating bills have been for the past two months. I’ve decided that I’m going to have to make some changes when it comes to using energy savings tips at my house. It seems like I am the only one in this family who cares one bit about trying to use any energy savings tips in our house. But of course, I’m the one who has to pay the heating and cooling bills, so that’s why I am the one who cares! It seems as if everyone else who lives in this house thinks that it is our job to heat and cool the entire outside. They are constantly leaving the doors and windows open and so the heating and the air conditioning goes right out the window. My hard earned money ends up going right out the window along with the heating and the A/C! But even with them leaving the doors and windows open, the heating bills aren’t usually this high in the winter. And the weather hasn’t been particularly bad this year, either. The temperatures this year are actually a little bit warmer than they were at this time last year. So the high heating bills just weren’t making much sense to me. I called my local HVAC company and talked to one of the HVAC technicians. He mentioned that one of the reasons that my heating bills might be higher than normal could be that we had some cracks or leaks in our air ducts. It turns out he was right about that. We got the ductwork repaired and the heating bills lowered considerably.
