Time to prepare the house for winter HVAC savings

So I’m generally a pretty quick study. Living in a region now where the winter is super cold and really long motivated me to get hip to heating a house quickly. However, I got some great help after one of the coldest and most expensive winters of my life. The gas furnace was running all the time last year and I was never warm. I sort of wrote it off to not having acclimated to the cold. There is for sure some truth to that because no matter where I went, I was always cold. Shoot, I even had to slip a space heater under my desk at work I was so cold. At the same time, what I spent heating my home was a staggering amount. When I talked about it with some colleagues and neighbors, they told me that my house needed winter preparation badly. That’s why I took the fall to really take heed of that heating advice. The first thing I did was to replace all the weather stripping on all the entryways of my house. That meant I also replaced the old storm doors. Next, I went to the attic and laid down all sorts of new insulation up there. I also made sure to seal up the perimeter too. Finally, I went all over the outside of my house sealing cracks and around all the windows. I’m for sure ready to reap some serious HVAC heating savings this year. And I’m hoping the gas furnace can not be under the load it was last year.
