There are just so numerous things going on with our apartment that I either no nothing about or doesn’t hold my interest.
There are days I lie awake looking at my ceiling trying to contemplate all the little things that go into a house.
If I let it, these thoughts and actually stress me out. So, I do my best with what I have and attempt to be proactive. The best way for me to become proactive is focus on preventive maintenance. Lately, I have been focusing on lightening the demands on our Heating as well as A/C system. The utility costs are rising and I want to do all I can to hold the line on our budget. The doors and windows are where I first started. There were still some single paned windows on the fifth floor that I had not upgraded. I wanted to be sure that our beach house was sealed up with double paned windows throughout the house. I gave all the windows a undoubtedly fantastic sealing with some silicone as well. Our entry door is new and well fitting. All I had to do there was upgrade the worn out weather stripping. Then I study an article about how much Heating as well as A/C efficiency is lost through old HVAC duct. It stated that the average beach house can lose up to 30 percent of Heating as well as A/C treated air. The ducts sag which creates gaps between joints. I called the heating and cooling people and asked that they come out to check the ducts. They will scrub all of them, as well as, reseal all the joints.
