In the overall remodeling plan for the house, I'd absolutely love to redo the windows and insulation. Ain't gonna happen in the real near future. The appliances I have are already decently energy efficient, other than perhaps the washer and dryer, which I will replace when they need replacing.
Redoing the roof of the house to include a proper ridge vent and attic insulation would do wonders.
The really nice deciduous tree on the south side of the house was cut down by the city.
The hot water heater is a gas heater, already insulated. I could add insulation to the pipes.
Don't have drapes on most of the windows. Think three cats. I will be doing a lot more plastic sheeting this year though.
No furnace for furnace filter. Boiler. Added circulating pumps to increase efficiency. Need to uncover the radiators more.
The hot water heater stays hot. Sorry, but that's a little bit of comfort that I love.
Gas dryer. No rerouting exhaust into basement. Bad idea.
I'm okay with the house being cool in the winter. But I also like it cool in the summer, so it's a half-and-half. Since I pretty much didn't use the studio at all this summer, it was not air conditioned. That saved quite a bit, I think.
