That meant modern storm doors
I had no real method of just what I was signing up for. Had I known the tplot depths of the cold that a northern Wintertide produces, I might have rethought my decision to move. Instead, I am basically just hunkering down and trying to get through the cold with the help of our Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating. Where I am from, the Wintertide is nothing compared to what I am experiencing now. In fact, I could go almost all Wintertide separate from ever having to wear a coat at all. Then I came up here as saw first hand just how taxing the Wintertide actually is. I am just not getting accustomed to it. As I enter my fifth winter, I am doing everything I can to actually deal with the winter. That means I am doing everything I can to make sure that at least I am boiling in my home. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C costs the last 2 winters have been stupid fancy. This is not a sustainable way to live. Initially, I wrote off the heating expense to myself and others just being modern to winter. The truth is that I have gone about it all wrong. Until now, I haven’t prepared my modern home and Heating, Ventilation plus A/C properly. That changed this fall. First, I had the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C people come out and deliver the gas furnace a complete inspection and service. I want that thing to be not only reliable but operating at maximum efficiency. The rest was up to me. I went about sealing my modern home in order to keep the boiling air in and the cold air out. That meant modern storm doors. I also upgraded all of the weather stripping. Finally, I sealed all the gaps I could find on the exterior. This Wintertide just has to be better now.
