My parents always worried about the Heating as well as Air Conditioning in our house

When I was younger our parents were always so worried about the daily bills, as well as I really didn’t understand it until I got a little older.

I moved into our own lake house last year, as well as immediately forgot our parents age old rules.

I left all of the lights on, took long showers as well as left the thermostat running all day everyday. I got our first energy bill as well as I was horrified! The bill was way more costly than our rent, as well as I had no plan how to pay for it. I got a sixth job as well as worked as hard as I could. I asked all of our friends for energy saving tips, as well as most often heard that I needed to invest in a current heating as well as cooling system. I said I didn’t have the currency for that, as well as everybody told myself and others to at least get a smart thermostat… They explained that with a smart thermostat I could turn off the heating or cooling if I forgot while I was out. I could also set it for the times I was going to be lake house as well as wanted air conditioning. A friend of mine also works in Heating as well as Air Conditioning as well as said he would come change our air filters as well as see if he needed to do as well as A/C repairs. I was so thankful for all of our friends, as well as seriously hope that our next heating as well as cooling bill isn’t so high! I have been turning the thermostat off whenever I believe about it, I really should listen to our parents advice.
