Decided to do a bit more Powerwashing

Updated: Jun 24, 2020



After noticing a substantial savings in my energy consumption, I decided to go ahead and continue Power washing the basement walls with the GreenWorks 2000 PSI pressure washer, in preparation for the DryLok. I might add, that I'm not entirely sure this savings was actual, or a byproduct of adding the DryLok, but with a 6% reduction in energy cost -vs- a slightly warmer month with less days. I just can't pass up the opportunity to save a little more, just in case it was the DryLok.


Of course this could all be for nothing, since I'm just using the gas companies chart for average daily temperature, which I am unsure how they calculate it. I'd imagine they take the reported high/low for the day and average those, which could be severely misleading if say the low was -5, but the high was 50.


Not like that's ever happened in Ohio before. I can remember several instances of inches of snow through the day and a 40 degree temp spike overnight (melting all the snow). So admittedly, the savings could just be bad calculation parameters on the gas company. I just can't pass on the chance that it's actual savings. Worst case scenario, I'm getting more of the basement painted with only a few week delay on my room project.
