Keeping Costs Down

By
Real Estate Agent with Miramar Beach, Florida

I think for the most part we have all switched our heating systems from the cool mode to the heat mode.  I am not sure who controls the temp in your house but it does make sense to monitor the situation to keep everyone, including the bill payes happy. 

Homeowners wonder why the cost of cooling is higher than the cost of heating during the winter. In fact, there’s a popular myth that says cooling during the summertime costs more than heating in the wintertime. In the Mid-Atlantic region and in most regions of the United States except possibly Florida and Southern California and Texas, this simply isn’t true. Even in many energy efficient homes, wintertime heating costs can sometimes run nearly twice what AC costs to run. In fact, if you live in an older homes, the costs are much higher; heating your house can be almost four times as high!

So if you do have higher cooling costs, then that’s a problem. The higher cooling cost can be caused by poor efficiency, insufficient insulation, and other common issues in your home.

 

Keeping costs low in small areas builds up the money we get to use on pizza, right?

Interesting analysis here,  .  Being in the Denver area, and dealing with the cooler weather over the last week, our furnace is on quite a bit more than usual.  Yet, we never have a higher heating bill than the electric bill during the summer months to run the A/C vs the furnace from Nov - Feb.  Electricity just kills us... another reason is we both have our computers on in the home office a lot, too.
