Ugh, I did not want to make this post but, alas, we have had to turn the heat on. And by heat I mean our one 1500 watt heater; it’s not really that much energy that we are putting into the house… We have had a pretty large stretch with very few sunny days which has resulted in us having to turn up the thermostat. We were really hoping to make it into December but the silly sun just did not want to cooperate with us. What amazes me is that we can survive days with temperatures well into the negatives that are sunny and we do not need the heat on at all. Yet, here we sit with temperatures milder than normal for this time of year and we needed to turn it on.
Life in a Passive House. Am I complaining? Yes… but not really; life in a Passive House has so far, surpassed our expectations. Stay tuned for monthly energy data as I’ll continue to post our usage. At the end of February we will have one full year recorded and I am soooo curious to see where we end up with our heating and overall energy costs.
