Because of replacing windows, adding insulation, installing modern doors, caulking and weatherstripping, both of us were able to purchase a smaller system.
In Orland Park, Illinois, the summers are sizzling and humid with average hot and cold temperatures in the upper eighties. The winters are cold, snowy and windy, and the temperature frequently drops into the teens or even disadvantage studying. The two of us get approximately forty inches of rain per year, which is higher than the national average. The two of us expect around thirty inches of snow per year, which is also more than the US average. There are about 188 sunny days. That’s less than the national average. Our weather is partly cloudy year round. The two of us rely heavily on both the heating and cooling system. The cost of temperature control accounts for approximately half of our household energy costs. Tightening up the home to prevent energy waste is a priority. When both of us bought our home in Orland Park, there was no insulation in the attic, ancient windows that leaked air and doors that didn’t shut tight. The two of us could know drafts in every room and had problems with bugs and mold in the summer. The oil furnace and were over thirty years ancient and the ductwork was dirty, corroded and had cracks at the seams. Although it was a genuinely high-priced and expansive project, our fiance and I invested into an entirely modern duct system, central and oil furnace. Because of replacing windows, adding insulation, installing modern doors, caulking and weatherstripping, both of us were able to purchase a smaller system. The two of us made sure the ductwork was officially designed to maximize airflow. The Energy Star rated, high-efficiency heating and cooling method provides exceptional comfort and air quality. It saves currency on our utility bills just about every single month of the year.
