I have saved for a long time to make my house energy efficient. I find it so frustrating to pay high electric bills throughout the year just to heat and cool my house! It’s more than just upgrading the HVAC unit. I need to upgrade all of the windows, the doors, plus the insulation and siding. I know it is going to be a major project, but I am prepared to put the cash toward it. I have specifically saved for this. My house is old. I like the charm it has, but at the same time I know it is leaking heating and cooling left and right whenever I’m running the HVAC system. It drives me absolutely nuts thinking about it! All that money just wasted. Down the drain. I started saving as soon as I bought this home. My peace of mind is worth the cash though. I’m so happy I can finally get started on these upgrades! First I’m going to have an HVAC worker come in and redo the entire HVAC system. I’m upgrading it to a newer, more efficient model with new ductwork. I’m also going to be investing in spray foam insulation for the whole house and some brand new siding. I’m doing some other things in the house as well for aesthetic value, but this is what I’m most excited about. When I turn on my brand new air conditioner for the summer, I’ll know that the cost to run it will be completely worth it!
