I know it’s coming & I can’t do anything about it.
It comes every month no matter whether I hide under the bed or not.
It appears on the living room table all fat & expensive. The utility bill while in the summer time is not our friend. In fact, that bill is the cause of a fantastic deal of stress for me. I live in an area where a/c is a near constant throughout the summer. So when those summer time energy bill arrive, I dive for cover. Perhaps these bills would be easier to stomach if I was a bit more proactive about reducing the load on our Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system. Maybe stressing less & doing more would be a better solution than hiding from an inanimate object. I changed the air filter which was way overdue. I know this is a important deal because an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system has to have optimum airflow to operate efficiently & effectively. A restrained air filter is a single of the worst things for any heating & cooling system. I went outside & weeded around the condenser unit to be sure that it too was getting the maximum airflow. While I was out there, I also cleaned off the condenser cottageet so there would be no debris gumming up the works. Back inside, I made certain that all of the vents were open. I also paid special attention to the returns to be absolutely sure they were unjammed. The old curtains even came in handy. They were from a home we had before however I decided to hang them to help. Just covering direct sun windows with curtains or shades can greatly reduce the ambient temperature. Just doing these few things will help the next time that horrible bill comes in the mail.
