I recently moved into a new studio apartment down South.
I got a new job, and it allowed me to fulfill my dream.
The area I moved to was up and coming, and very expensive, so I went with a small studio apartment. I was nervous about the cost, but knew it would probably be fine. I wasn’t too excited about the utilities, they had been very expensive in my last house. The first month I was very careful to never turn on the AC unit or the heating. The temperature wasn’t the best, but I would just open the windows or use a fan. I also had a portable heater that was battery powered. I have a friend that was an HVAC technician and he was over one day and mentioned how hot it was. I told him that I was trying to save money and didn’t want to turn on the AC unit. He laughed at me and told me how cheap it would be to run an AC unit in a small space like mine. I had never realized that it would be cheap to run the AC, and thought it made sense. I made sure that my windows were insulated and had an HVAC technician come check out the AC unit and thermostat to make sure they were at proper standards. The next day I started running my AC unit, even though I was scared of the cooling costs. I got my bill a few days ago and I couldn’t believe how low it was! Now I know that when you have an AC unit in a small space, with insulated windows, you can really cool down the temperature at a low cost. I now enjoy AC everyday without worrying about my energy costs. I am glad my friend is an HVAC technician.
