The wallet definitely feels a bit tighter than they were just a year ago.
- Primarily, this is the result of having to do my job from home in the comfort of our Heating, Ventilation, & A/C for the entire Summer & more.
And now that the Summer heat has concluded, it doesn’t look enjoy it’s going to get any better anytime soon. So, we just keep plugging I guess. The house budget took a few hits due to our income being slightly reduced as a result of the pandemic. I’m lucky to still have my task & be able to work out of the home. However, my wife no longer has her task as she is helping the teenagers with their remote studies. So we have to do whatever we can to keep our spending to a minimum. But in this spot, Heating, Ventilation, & A/C is fancy for at least half the year. Our Summer starts early & ends very late. That means all of us have to own superb Heating, Ventilation, & A/C just to get through the high heat. This year, we truly pushed ourselves a bit more to see just how much dough we could save on the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C costs. That meant that we definitely kept the beach house a bit warmer than we ever had prior. I kept an eagle eye on the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C settings since I was working from home. All of us didn’t cave & instead made sure that we stayed very disciplined in order to save that money. All of us used fans in order to know a bit colder. I’m pleased to be going into the area of the year where the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C spending is quite minimal. And, we saved well over 20 percent on our Heating, Ventilation, & A/C utility cost over previous years.
