Saving Money Heating Your Home, Cooling It Too!

Insulated houses save money for the home owner, fetch a higher price on the real estate market.

Because no one has money to burn. Toasty warm is something folks seek out. But everyone wants to spend their weekly paycheck more efficiently. To have left over money from the house hold expense belt tightening for stuff that is just more fun. Or for savings to sleep better nights. And to live debt free and easy.winter heating season, bundle up photo

Owning a woodlot in Maine makes heating the home not so micro managed or nit picking to squeeze out the most BTU's and to keep them inside the four walls, under the roof line.

But not everyone in the real estate audience of home owners is a "son of a birch" and harvests their own renewable fuel resource from their own private timber stand.

Maine is 91% wooded though and a plentiful  stash of cut, split and delivered wood is a beautiful thing.

Something easy to mosey up close and personal to on a daily, nightly basis. To warm your bones neat, swet complete, efficiently. Because wood heat just hits you deeper. Radiates, does the job completely. But what if you don't have a back forty acres of land all populated with a healthy stand of woods that should be thinned out? To draw from, tap into as a heating savings bank at your own personal disposal?

And what happens when the home in Maine is not thirsty for oil while you are a snow bird in the sunny south or southwest... that's not good. Not good at all and is not a freeze up from a loose drafty home but another problem involving the unplugged sub pump. Winter homes unattended are a whole other issue to be concerned about when away.

Please read the article, more on making your home easier to heat this winter.

Which translates into having it way way cooler next summer too because insulation is involved in both measures. And a left over little jingle in the pocket of the proud home owner. That's on the ball,  running a tight ship and not shivering at the same time. When the mercury or red fluid in the tube sinks lower during the winter months in colder climate states in the USA.

There was a time when I would heat the house with wood.  I felt I got heat 3 ways from the wood:

Heat when it's being cut

Heat when it's being split

Heat when it's in the stove

(Coughing) I get your drift... the positive ions from the fire can be hypnotic though and staying warm, toasty is a great feeling after being outside working, down hill or cross country skiing, skating and playing pond hockey, etc Sally K. & David L. Hanson . Santa likes those fireplaces, moonlights as a chimney sweep. Ho Ho Ho don't you know.

We can never take heat for granted. If there's one thing I learned when living in Maine is you don't waste wood or opportunity. Homes need to be heated. It's not something you can ignore. If when they are vacant, they must be tended to with respect. 

You're doing a great job selling property and educating people in Maine.

This is the time of the year when outdoor firepits get their workout in Wisconsin with the crisp fall air before we begin taking that firewood indoors to fireplaces everywhere.
