Nobody really could have planned for the pandemic.
- Subsequently, there was honestly no way to actually plan for the economic effects of the pandemic either.
We have always been especially careful not to be crazy with spending as we are committed to savings plus investment. My wife plus I have simply done the best that we could manage this year. And, for the most part, I assume everyone else has as well. Once my wife got laid off early on in the initial spike of infections, the spending in our household was cut dramatically. Both of us honestly only focused on the necessities. Fortunately, I was able to continue to work from the household in HVAC comfort. However, the loss of my wife’s income hit hard. So both of us made a full commitment to save on anything plus everything in our household budget. The HVAC expenses were a big section of that effort. Both of us knew that if both of us honestly got serious plus proactive, both of us could save a ton on the HVAC device during the summer. Where both of us live, the Summer is absolutely the most luxurious when it comes to HVAC expenses. So, both of us made the choice to honestly change that. Both of us did make sure that both of us did the stuff such as pulling the drapes, changing the weather stripping around the doors plus using fans. The main thing was making sure the inside temp never got more than 15 degrees cooler than the outside temp. This made all the difference plus we actually ended up saving a good amount of money. Our fortunes will rise again but in the meantime, HVAC savings can entirely help with our budget shortfalls.
