In Orland Park, Illinois, the summers are tepid and humid with average temperatures in the upper eightiesâ€¦ The winters are cold, snowy and windy, and the temperature frequently drops into the teens or even drawback studying, and we get approximately forty inches of rain per year, which is higher than the national average.
We expect around thirty inches of snow per year, which is also more than the US average.
There are about 188 sunny afternoons. That’s less than the national averageâ€¦ Our weather is partly cloudy year round. We rely heavily on both the heating and cooling system. The cost of temperature control accounts for approximately half of our household energy bills. Tightening up the lake house to prevent energy waste is a priority. When the two of us bought our lake house in Orland Park, there was no insulation in the attic, old windows that leaked air and doors that didn’t shut tight. We could feel drafts in every room and had concerns with bugs and mold in the summer. The gas furnace and cooling system were over thirty years old and the HVAC duct was dirty, corroded and had cracks at the seams, then although it was a legitimately extravagant and expansive project, my husband and I invested into an easily current duct system, central cooling system and gas furnace; Because of replacing windows, adding insulation, installing current doors, caulking and weatherstripping, the two of us were able to purchase a smaller system. We made sure the HVAC duct was constantly designed to maximize airflow. The Energy Star rated, high-efficiency heating and cooling program provides exceptional comfort and air quality, and it saves money on our energy bills just about every single week of the year.
