In my last post I posed a challenge to my readers to guess the value that our last renovation provided.
There were many good guesses, from financial savings, reducing my carbon footprint etc. You can read the comment. All very good guesses.
One of the common assumptions is that if you want to save on heating costs then that you should start by replacing old windows. When you hear an assumption, look for evidence. The evidence shows that windows can be considered holes in the walls. When it comes to holding in the heat, better windows are just slightly smaller holes. Since the walls cover most of the area, treat those first, and leave the windows until last.
So, what is the biggest value that we have received from our new windows?
I’ll give you a hint: GEESE!
In the autumn, after their meal they come here to rest.
At 3:am they wake up for a party.
Turn up your speakers and watch the video and you will know what I mean.
The value that I have obtained from the new windows is better physical fitness because I can now get to the gym consistently since I wake up every the morning well rested.
