I’m so gleeful to be so cozy plus moderate this winter.
And so far, both of us are saving just over 20 percent on the heating costs.
A warmer beach house with less heating costs? Where has that been since I moved to the north? Well, I believe preparing our beach house for Wintertide was yet another thing that I had to learn about winter. Where I am from, there’s not much to winter. Now plus again both of us would have to flip the temperature control over to heating if both of us had a chilly snap. But mostly, the winters I grew up with needed no more than a hoodie plus maybe a pair of pants occasionally. That is absolutely not the case in this region. This sort of chilly is the kind that cuts right through you just stepping out the door. I have to say that dealing with this kind of weather in the Wintertide was way tougher to get accustomed to than I thought it would be. I have been up here now 6 years plus I am still not fully acclimated to the Wintertide cold. But I sure scored giant by listening to a neighbor when it came to preparing our beach house for winter. Our lake beach house is a bit on the older side although it’s structurally in fantastic shape. But with any older structure, gravity comes into play plus produces gaps throughout the structure. So that is what Wintertide preparation actually is all about. I spent a few weekends in the fall tightening up the beach house by sealing up all the gaps plus cracks I could find. I also put down some new insulation in the attic as well. I’m amazed by the difference plus am so thankful for all the saving when it comes to heating costs.
