I have, of course, been called a penny pincher more than once. I’ve been called a lot worse than that, however penny pincher comes up the most often. People say that care about it’s a really terrible thing, as if throwing money around casually is a better, somehow more rewarding way of life. And maybe it is, I truly wouldn’t know. My dad raised my sister and me to be a spendthrift plus that is how I will raise my children one day. I don’t own a car and I never have. I ride the bus so I don’t have to pay for insurance or gas. I never go out to eat, plus I rarely turn on my gas furnace or my a/c. My house came with a powerful heating plus cooling system previously installed, although I maybe use them once or twice a year. And when I do use them, I make sure to go ahead and follow some energy saving tips. For example, the HVAC duct. You might not suppose that you know very much about your air ducts, however they can cost you a lot if not properly taken care of. I always make sure to do a thorough HVAC duct cleaning before using the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C. Once the heating (or cooling) is on, I check every single one of the seams to make sure the HVAC duct sealing is still holding. A lot of lavish air can be altogether lost through cracks in the walls of the heating ducts. I also make sure to calibrate the home’s thermostat with a separate digital thermostat, to confirm the readings are accurate and that everything is functioning properly. Climate control is enjoyable to have, however saving money on energy bills is a little bit more enjoyable, if you ask me.
