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