While the mercury is not falling yet... electric bill has. Previous bill was $350. Yup. Ouch.

The first full month with the insulation in the attic and the new windows has seen the bill fall to $298. I want to thank Matt and aepilot_jim and-- of course-- Himself for helping to make the house more comfortable and the bills ultimately more manageable. Next step will be to get someone in to put insulation under the flooring, and I think this house will be very cozy indeed from here on out.

It's nice to not sweat just sitting in one spot here, now.
Just the same, I'm looking forward to a break in this horrible heat.

We replaced our windows this past spring, and the difference in the house is amazing. Fewer drafts pushing dust rhinos out from under the couch, no sweating while reading a book, and our energy bill has also gone down.

it's nice to such an immediate return on your investment.
