I moved up North and now I miss my fireplace
I just moved into a new house and it’s really amazing.
The only complaint I have about my new house it that there is no fireplace. I just moved to the North and before I was living down South. When I lived at my old house we had a fireplace but it was so hot we barely ever used it. When it was cold outside I would turn off he furnace and replace it with the fireplace so that actually was pretty nice. Now that I am up North the heating bill is outrageous and I know if I had a fireplace I could save a ton of money. It is frustrating to know that my old house is sitting there with a fireplace but I can’t use it! The HVAC system that we have in our new hoes is very modern so it is energy efficient fo the most part, but it is really cold and requires the furnace to be on almost all day and night. When I moved up North I kind of forgot to factor in the HVAC costs to our rent, which was a big mistake. Our HVAC bill is almost a quarter of the rent, I have called a few HVAC technicians but all of them have told me this is pretty normal around these parts. I am trying to find an HVAC technician that has some energy saving tips for me but most of them just say to install a fireplace and insulate my windows better. I probably will install a smart thermostat and also call a mason to get a fireplace installed. I don’t think it will cost too much money and I am excited to sit by a fireplace and know that I am saving money on my HVAC bill.
