You would have thought it was in the walls, but nope its not. For the past month or so we have been experiencing colder than normal temps. I dont have a furnace in my place. I have little space heaters. Even with them all going full blast, I was/am freezing.
Then the other night, the neighbors on the next street over was well talking outside, I could hear ever single word. I can also hear motorcycles, some cars, and birds. Its like they are in the same room as me. That got me to thinking. (scary I know) What if this place has little or no insulation, that might explain the noise and cold temps.
Tuesday I was off from work and decided to do some test. I checked the outside temp and compared it to the inside temp. Outside was 77 inside 84 and climbing. The highest it got, was 89 and I couldnt take it anymore, I turned on my a/c.
With sweat pouring down my back, I ripped off one of the walls, its right above the door. As you can see in the picture below, its the siding and wood, nothing else. I about cried. So now I have to buy insulation for my home. With the summers getting way up in the 90's with high humidity my little a/c will never shut off, it will be on 24/7.
I just got my home not looking like a construction zone. But now its going to look like it again. I have got to get this finished before summer gets here, or my electric bill will be out of this world.
