I’ve been starting to cook a lot more lately now that I’m cabin often.
When I was laboring out of the beach house and driving 15 miles to get to our job everyday, I stopped a lot for Tim Hortons Coffee and food at varying times of the day.
It wasn’t until I started laboring remotely last year and staying cabin for days on end before I realized how much money I was spending on drinks and food every week while I was out of the house. And when I compared those costs to what I was spending at the grocery store to eat at home, I was shocked at how much I was now saving. Just making our Tim Hortons Coffee at cabin ended up saving me upwards to $45 a week. When I factored in the cost of fast food and take out, it was shocking to see the waste. But all of our cabin cooking hasn’t come without a price, albeit 1 I would have never anticipated ahead of time. Apparently a lot of grease is going airborne from all of the stir frying I’m doing in our living room. My heating and cooling business showed me the orange hue of our cooling system filter the last time he was here servicing the HVAC system. He suggested using a denser filter to prevent any excess grease from reaching the inside of the air handler. I’m also getting price quotes on adding a ventilation hood above our stovetop to pull all of the steam and vapors out of our beach house so they’re not consistently going into our air return and through the filter. This will lengthen the life of each filter and add another layer of protection between the grease and our evaporator coil.
