The Window Was Open

Last month, I opened my monthly utility bill and I was stunned by the price. Although I had been running my furnace like I normally did, the bill was almost twice as much as it normally was. At that moment, I didn’t know what was causing the price to be so high, but I started thinking the worst. At first, I thought that something had gone wrong with my HVAC system, which was causing the price to be so high. Maybe there was a leak in the ductwork or something I couldn’t see? I hired an HVAC company immediately and they sent an HVAC professional out to take a look at my HVAC system. The HVAC professional did tell me what was causing my utility bill to be so high, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. Apparently, while he was outside taking a look at all the equipment, he noticed that there was a window open. When he came back into the house, he realized that the window was actually in my husband’s office. My husband had been out of town for several weeks and his office door was shut, so I didn’t realize that the heat was escaping through the window. There was an air vent right under the window, which only made things worse. I couldn’t believe that he’d opened the window and then neglected to shut it! Our heat was being wasted and it was costing us a fortune. Not to mention, I felt like an idiot when the HVAC professional told me this.
