Insulation is awesome  
So, last year, our house underwent a huge pain in the butt period of chaos in order to get new windows installed and insulation blown into the walls. That sort of thing being what it was, the whole process finished toward the end of the cold season, so we only got a little taste of its effects before warmer weather moved in.

But now here we are in October, and the weather's cooling, and it's awesome. I love how noticeable the difference is. We haven't turned on our heat, and while we might have been holding out even if we didn't have the new insulation, we'd really feel like we're holding out. But as it is, our house is comfortable and cozy. This is awesome.

I don't remember when we started turning on the heat in previous years, do you?

Not specifically, since it kind of varies depending on when the first cold week comes. But I think that this would have been that week

Yeah, that insulation stuff is as good as they say.

The ability to have a properly insulated house is the only thing that tempts me to build a new house. In fact, the thought makes me drool but not enough to move from my otherwise wonderful situation.

We had our house insulated this summer and I notice a difference already. I do wish we could do the windows too but thems pricey.
