Loving the shade

Heating the home is not even self-explanatory in the winter.

I live in the woods and our whole home is shaded by trees. When I first bought the place I thought this was a wonderful thing. I liked the method of the leaves falling and increasing colors right by our window. I also loved the thought of privacy. Well, the trees have been nothing but a pain. I am always raking, picking up sticks and maintaining our lawn. Also, the trees block me from sunlight. In the summer time our home is frosty frosty always. The trees totally shade the home. It feels like it is 50 degrees inside our home and outside can be in the 80s. I always want to run our heating equipment, no matter the time of year. My husband refuses to run the gas furnace when it is sizzling outside. I believe the two of us bought the gas furnace to hot us when the two of us are cold. I am frosty a lot in the summer. The summer time mornings drop in temperature as well. The frosty mornings make it that I have to run our heated blanket. I also don’t want to allow the frosty outdoor air to come through our windows. So the same stuffy indoor air quality stays in the home all year. Heating the home is not even self-explanatory in the winter. The home is big and frosty cold. Getting the gas furnace to not leave frosty spots and rise to the ceiling is impossible too. I do save money with no AC, but the gas furnace makes up for those savings. I entirely should cut some trees down to get some daylight access.
