The utility companies are draining my budget. I spend a fortune on energy bills. Now and then, I forget to pay in time. Not only are my bills already far too high, but then I waste more money on the additional late fees! Right now, there’s nothing I can do about my costly utility bills. I just have to deal with the expense until I can afford to update the Heating and cooling components. I won’t be able to come up with the money to do that for awhile however, and in the meantime, I’m just wasting money. For these high utility bills, I’m not getting a whole lot in return. I’d love to get a brand new furnace and air conditioner right away. I am aware that at some point I’ll want to gut the house to the bare studs. Since the house is old, it needs a ton of work and modernization. That will be the perfect chance to replace the heating and cooling equipment, as well as the ductwork, throughout the whole house. It’s something needs to happen in the future, but I’m afraid of the cost. I worry about my budget, and need to stick to it. I would prefer to have a substantial savings in the bank. I realize a renovation is going to be an involved project and huge expense. At the same time, once it’s finished, the house will be so much more comfortable and airtight. The more energy efficient equipment HVAC equipment will save me enough money to recover the investment.
