Man, that heating leak in our lake house just drove me crazy.
I just couldn’t find it, but both of us live in an older lake house and with older houses come drafts, but this was something I knew before the people I was with and I purchased this house, then and drafts just kill the efficiency of even the absolutely latest in residential Heating, Ventilation plus A/C and gas gas furnace Heating, Ventilation plus A/C technology.
And the people I was with and I live in a region where there is almost various weeks of Winter and that is not an exaggeration. The cost of Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating is high enough without having a drafty lake house to make it worse; So when the people I was with and I purchased the site, I had the windows replaced with double paned windows. Both of us also added some insulation in the attic along with a new roof that was added by the seller before it went on the market! I put in some severe storm doors and the best weather stripping I could buy. All of our efforts were aimed at making a cozy space for our family and reducing the cost of Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating; Yet, despite our best efforts, I still have that dang draft. And I scoured the lake house to find it however it took a visiting friend to show me where it was. Actually, he showed me an instant study thermal gun and it found the problem. That thermal gun was what finally lead me to find the culprit when it came to our Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating cost. Ironically, it was a single of the windows I had had replaced. But that window had not been officially insulated and that was the problem. The window contractor got an earful from me before they corrected the problem. This Winter will be saving even more on Heating, Ventilation plus A/C heating cost.
