Real frigid air

I had to laugh this week.  My partner was downstairs really working on one of his helicopters.  He had a tight grip on his vacuum cleaner, as he ran up the stairs. I asked him if everything was all right and he said he just had to scrub the air vent,  I thought he had cleaned all of the air vents a month ago. Apparently he had forgotten the air vent in the spare living room. I had to laugh because the air vents really weren’t that dirty.  I had cleaned it right before Christmas, so we could turn up the heat for our dealer. He said that he wanted to make sure all of the air vents were clean, in his search to find out why it was so frigid in our home.  The air vents are honestly the baseboard heaters. Every one of us have a boiler plan for our furnace. The baseboard furnaces have the water pipes going through them. The fans blow the heat from the pipes, across the fins and the heat is  directed onto the floor. It has been really warm for the last various years, but not right now. It seems that this year, our condo is so much colder. I’m not sure how long he is going to search for the source of the frigid air. I keep telling him that the draft is coming up through the floor.  I guess the insulation needs to be replaced, or maybe there is a crack in the foundation, but I’m not an expert in heating. Come to guess of it, neither is he, so maybe we should just call the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business and get evaluated.
