I’ve always liked living in the northeastern area of the country, however i care about the benefits of increasing seasons, then after the heat and humidity of the Summer months, I look forward to the cool air and colorful leaves of fallâ€¦ The Winter snow and sub zero rapidly increasing temperatures can be brutal, but the cleansing rain and flowers of Spring are always just around the corner.
I get to take fortune of snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in addition to kayaking and cycling, however, the wide temperature swings are a challenge.
For the majority of the year, it’s necessary to run either the furnace or the air conditioner. The windows need to be kept shut and the apartment sealed up narrow to avoid energy losses, then minimizing the workload of the heating and cooling method helps the budget. I want to lower the annually utility bills as much as possible, then by preventing the conditioned air from escaping out of gaps in insulation and leaks around windows and doors, I save myself quite a bit of money. I also stop the outside air from coming in, and while this is the whole purpose of our efforts, it can cause some concerns with indoor air conditions, and ventilation is vital to maintaining a healthy living environment, otherwise, the air gets stuffy and staleâ€¦ Contaminants get trapped inside and circulated around by the furnace and air conditioner. To solve this problem, I’ve invested in a ventilation system. It’s a style of air quality accessory that brings in fresh air and expels stale air. It helps to regulate humidity, minimize air contamination and reduce energy costs, then less moisture in the air in the Summer means the air conditioner doesn’t need to labor as hard. In the winter, the ventilator preheats the incoming air to help out the furnace.
