Keeping a warm and comfortable home

Winters in South Bend, Indiana, necessitate a powerful heating system, then i start up the furnace by the end of October and keep it running until the end of April or even early May! The outdoor temperature drops below chilly for the majority of the year.

Temperatures in the teens or even the downsides aren’t unusual… Due to the excessive amount of snowfall and frigid conditions, my family spends a lot of time indoors.

The cost of heating has a significant impact on the condo budget; When the furnace runs non stop, it causes complications with insufficient humidity. The overldy dry air can result in detriment to hardwood floors and furnishing and encourages higher thermostat settings. It dries out nasal passages, making family members more susceptible to flu and colds, and coughing, sneezing, headaches, sore throat, itchy eyes, chapped lips, frizzy hair and difficulty sleeping can all be blamed on a lack of humidity. It was necessary to invest into a whole-condo humidifier, then keeping a comfortable condo in South Bend is expensive and quite a bit of work. I have made every effort to tighten up the house and eliminate energy waste. I’ve installed thermal-pane, low E, Energy Star Rated windows and meticulously caulked around them. I’ve weatherstripped exterior doors, added ceiling fans and carefully insulated around outlets and plumbing pipes. I spent a annoyed weekend adding a new layer of insulation to the attic. It is consistently such a relief when Springtime finally arrives in South Bend. I don’t bother with central air conditioner. The warm weather doesn’t last long, and I appreciate to open windows and welcome in some fresh air.
