Both of us obtained our condo in late November.
While it was a nicely appointed condo with all the latest amenities, it was also an older home. The structure was in superb shape as both of us made sure to get that professionally confirmed. In our area, the Wintertide gets here pretty early. So by the time both of us closed plus had the keys to the house, the early signs of Wintertide were upon us. I didn’t have to worry about the Heating and A/C heating method which was nice. The previous owner had upgraded both the heating plus the cooling units for the house. So, it was with confidence that I was going into that first Wintertide in our new locale. From the start, I kept noticing that both of us were having to push the Heating and A/C setting higher plus higher in order to stay warm. This was concerning since both of us had a new furnace. I wondered if they split corners on the furnace plus it wasn’t powerful enough to heat the volume of our home. So, I had the HVCA people come out plus give the thing a complete inspection. I was surprised but relieved to learn that the furnace was not the problem. The Heating and A/C tech assured myself and others that both of us had a state of the art furnace with more than enough power to heat our home. The complication was the house. The Heating and A/C tech suggested that I work to very seal up the condo tighter. That meant more insulation, new weather stripping plus making sure the window casings were insulated. He also recommended I use a temp gun to find spots on the exterior that were leaking heated air.
