I keep getting nosebleeds

I am so sick of these awful, long winters and I hate having such incredibly sensitive skin! I am a summer girl; through and through. All summer I am in my glory. I am a lifeguard at the local beach and I am on the outdoor competitive swim team. I have a nice healthy tan and the most beautiful skin all summer. It is definitely my favorite season since it seems to agree with my skin so well. Spring and Fall are okay seasons, as long as they are mild I do just fine. It is Winter that gets the best of me every time. As soon as the temperature and moisture levels drops my skin starts to get dry. As time goes by, the skin cracks and bleeds. By Christmas time I am usually getting a nosebleed once a week or so and they  just increase until the weather starts to get warmer. It used to be even worse before i installed a heavy duty, high powered, aloe infused humidifier in my home. It attaches right to the energy efficient heater I have in my home. It definitely helps. I think the time I spend outside, in other people’s homes, and in businesses with poor air quality that causes me to suffer still. There is just no escape, I have taken all the extra precautions that I can! Winter is just an absolutely terrible month! I wish everyone had the same high quality humidifier that I do! If the air quality at work and in all the homes I visited were just as good as the air quality in my home, maybe I could avoid nosebleeds all together. A girl can dream.

HVAC maintenance 

We don’t use the HVAC very often

I don’t truly know how to say this rather politely, however it’s simply just regarding our much older sibling so I know I don’t absolutely need to even just worry about our professional tact, so here it goes… he absolutely smells terrible. I mean, his personality is great plus he’s a single of our great friends, however man, he absolutely aromas badly. See, he’s not the cleanest fellow you’ve ever encountered. That actually wouldn’t be such a problem if it wasn’t for his constant cigarette smoking he does plus penchant for ripping farts all of the time. He even just lives on a whole diet of beer plus fast food, plus therefore has some honestly very destructive intestinal production which genuinely pollutes the entire indoor air. If it was even possible to do an at-house test, I would be entirely very interested to certainly just detect the level of airborne contaminants present before plus after he has stopped by the house there because I do guarantee that there are unsavory air particles floating around after he’s been right in the room. That’s why I’m genuinely considering purchasing an in-house air purification equipment before his next visit to our own home. I do suppose it would make a very important difference in the lingering aromas, decreased air quality, plus subsequent illnesses both of us often experience after our important bro has been tooting up a storm in our living room there. The best area is, I’ve already called plus talked to the local Heating plus Air Conditioning dealership about our sibling’s very raucous farts plus smelly body. They are actually so very sympathetic to our air quality needs that they gave myself and others a very steep discount that day.

I am struggling to fall asleep

I don’t even know how to really say this that politely, but it’s actually regarding my much older brother so I think I don’t actually need to worry about my professional tact here so here it goes… he just smells. I mean, his personality is good and he’s one of my fantastic friends, but man, he actually smells badly. That actually wouldn’t be such a big problem if it wasn’t for his constant cigarette smoking and penchant for ripping farts all of the time. He even lives on a diet of beer and fast food, and therefore has some very truly destructive intestinal production there which sincerely just really pollutes the indoor air. If it was possible to do an at-home test, I would be genuinely be very interested to detect the level of airborne contaminants present before and after he has stopped by the house there that day because I do guarantee that there are very unsavory air particles floating around after he’s been in the room there. That’s why I’m very sincerely considering purchasing an in-house air purification device just before his next visit to our home. I think it would certainly make a very huge difference in the very lingering smells, decreased air quality, and subsequent illnesses the two of us often really do experience after my very big bro has been absolutely tooting up a huge storm in my own living room. The best space is, I’ve already simply called and talked to the local HVAC dealership about my brother’s raucous farts and smelly body. They are actually so very sympathetic about it to my air quality needs that they provided myself and others a rather steep discount.

I need some air filtration

I don’t really know how to exactly just say this politely, but it’s simply just regarding my much older brother so I don’t genuinely need to really worry about my actual professional tact, so here it goes. He genuinely smells bad. See, he’s not the cleanest fellow you’ve ever encountered though either. In fact, he actually just prides himself on only really showering about once a month plus rarely even washing his clothes. That really wouldn’t be such a big problem if it wasn’t for his most constant cigarette smoking plus penchant for ripping farts all the time. He actually just lives on a diet of beer plus fast food, plus therefore has some very genuinely destructive intestinal production which genuinely pollutes the entire indoor air. If it was even possible to do a test, I would be undoubtedly interested to detect the absolute level of airborne contaminants simply present before plus after he has stopped by the house there, because I really just guarantee that there are very unsavory air particles floating right around after he’s been in the room there. That’s exactly why I’m genuinely just considering purchasing an in-apartment air purification component before his very next visit to our home. I think it would make a very big difference in the lingering odors around here, decreased air quality, plus subsequent illnesses the two of us often experience after my big bro has been tooting up a whole storm right in my kitchen. The best part is, I’ve already called plus talked to the local Heating plus Air Conditioning dealership about my brother’s most raucous farts plus odory body too. They are really just so sympathetic to my very air quality needs that they had even just offered myself and others a rather steep discount.

I need better air filters

I don’t know really how to say this politely, but it’s regarding my much older sister so I know I don’t particularly need to worry about what to say, so here it goes… she particularly smells rather bad. I mean, her personality is rather good and she’s just 1 of our good friends, but man, she particularly smells really badly. See, she’s not even the cleanest fellow you’ve ever encountered either. In fact, she prides herself on only showering about once a month or so and rarely washes her own clothes. That particularly wouldn’t be such a big problem to me if it wasn’t for her most constant cigarette smoking and penchant for ripping farts all of the time. She actually just lives on a diet of beer here and tons of fast food, and therefore has some very legitimately destructive intestinal production which truly just pollutes the entire indoor air. If it was even that possible to do an at-house test, I would be truly interested to simply detect the level of airborne contaminants present before and after she has stopped by the house there, because I guarantee that there are very unsavory air particles just floating all around after he’s been right in the room. That’s why I’m truly just considering purchasing an in-house air purification machine before her very next visit to our own home. I do recognize it would make a really big difference in the most lingering smells, decreased air quality, and subsequent illnesses the people I was with and I often really do experience after our big bro has just been tooting up a storm in our own room. The best part really is, I’ve already just called and talked to the local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C dealership about our own sister’s raucous farts and even her smelly body. They are particularly so very sympathetic to our air quality needs that they had simply just offered me a very steep discount here.

We may need some better filtration

I don’t know how to say this politely, but it’s regarding my older brother so I guess I don’t really need to worry about my professional tact, so here it goes… he really stinks. I mean, his personality is great and he’s one of my good friends, but man, he really smells badly. See, he’s not the cleanest fellow you’ve ever encountered. In fact, he prides himself on only showering about once a week and rarely changing his clothes. That actually wouldn’t be such a big problem if it wasn’t for his constant cigarette smoking and penchant for ripping farts. He lives on a diet of beer and fast food, and therefore has some truly destructive intestinal production which honestly pollutes the indoor air.

That’s why I’m honestly considering purchasing an in-home air purification unit before his next visit to our home. I think it would make a huge difference in the lingering odors, decreased air quality, and subsequent illnesses we often experience after my big bro has been tooting up a storm in my living room. The best part is, I’ve already called and talked to the local HVAC dealership about my brother’s raucous farts and stinky body.

I think this is a good strategy

I took a job over the summer this year that I really hate. I need to have a job during the summer to be able to pay for school activities. We are going on a trip as Seniors to New York City and my parents can’t afford to pay for it.  I started looking for work way too late since I had to finish summer school classes first. There was literally nothing decent left for me by the time I had the time to look on all of the job boards!  Now, I got the job no one wants.  Living in a beach town means that we have a lot of resorts. These people have openings all the time for cleaning staff so that was all I could do. The places are rented out for the entire season. With daily and weekly turnovers, the cleaning services can barely keep up with the fast pace. This inevitably means that the summer cleaning crews job is way worse than anyone else’s. They do their best, but they forget to change the air filters in the HVAC units.  This means that there is a constant odor in the units and the guests are always complaining about it. I am not a trained HVAC professional. But, at the beginning of our shift, a person who is, came in to give us an overview on how to maintain the HVAC units. Apparently, if we can identify problems and at least change the filters, it saves the owners a lot of money on service and repair costs.

Modern filters are what you should look for

When I was growing up, the group of us typically had pets. A few dogs and some random cats along the years, too. No one in our family had allergies, so it didn’t occur to me that some people are easily affected by having pets and pet hair in the room. I realized this as an adult and residing on our own. My bestie came over and I forgot to tell him I had a cat. He prefers cats, but has horrible allergies so can’t be in the room with them. The next time he came over, I had cleaned a lot and it helped, but still wasn’t fantastic enough. I decided to ask our Heating and Air Conditioning repair shop for any suggestions, and the experienced workers informed me of HEPA filters to replace the outdated style I had been using. I also change them more frequently than I had been doing previously. I would just forget to change them and it easily makes a difference. Since using the modern filters, the air has been much cleaner and our bestie has been able to breathe easier in the apartment. Besides the cat dander and hair, the HEPA filters also remove pollen and other materials from the air, so it keeps us both healthier. I’m so glad both of us were able to find a solution, because I love both our bestie and our cat.

I am very excited about this

I was in charge of the annual ladies fashion show. This was a rather large fundraiser for our church that is held in our fellowship hall. We  counted on this fundraiser every year to earn a significant amount of money that we needed to help cover expenses such as utility bills and insurance payments. The irony is, the fundraiser is held in late fall, and we had a problem with the HVAC system, this made everyone very aware how important keeping the heat on really was. If we didn’t have the money to fix the HVAC system or pay the utility bills, we would all be freezing during the winter. This actually helped the cause and people were more willing to donate. At first, the committee said we should just cancel the event all together, my husband came up with a temporary fix that worked out great. We contacted our local HVAC dealer to see about renting some portable heaters to keep it as warm as possible in the hall.  I set up for the even and put up signs asking people to keep their jackets on. Because of the size of the room and the very high ceilings, the portable units could only do so much when it came to the temperature of the room.  As people were seated we passed out warm drinks. When we announced what the problem was and how much it would be to repair the system, people were more than generous.  By the end of the event we had enough money to fix the HVAC system and cover the utility bills for the rest of the year.  

This is a genius idea

I have been dealing with this issue of skin problems for as long as I can remember. As a child, I really just thought that it was something everyone dealt with from time to time. I didn’t think anything of it, until I started getting older and realized that I was different. My doctors could never give me any answers, they always just referred to me as sensitive. So, leave it to my HVAC technician to point out the obvious! I was meeting the technician for mom’s regular heating and cooling maintenance check. He was going around the house cleaning out all of the air filters, checking the thermostat and vents to make sure it was running properly. When, all of a sudden, he turned to me and asked how long I have had that rash. I was kind of stunned that an HVAC technician was asking me about my health! I told him it was just a skin problem that I was born with. He tells me that he could help, if I wanted help. I looked at him very bewildered. How is a heating and cooling technician going to help my skin problems. So, I was intrigued and asked him and how he could help. He told me that he had seen this type of rash before. He said it can actually come from the air filter system in one’s house. He, then, went on to explain how Radiant Floor Heat is all the rage. It is installed through the floorboards and is less intrusive. He told me that I would see immediate results. I have to admit, I was pretty curious. I told my mom about it. And, thankfully, she was willing to try it out!

We love this HVAC system

I had a really fun breakfast date with my  husband last weekend. We had both been so stressed lately with everything going on, and we knew we had to find some way to enjoy a date. We decided on going to breakfast together! We both put our smartphones down, and really listened to each other talk. It was a really good time! During the course of our “date”, the we began to discuss some home renovations that we had been needing to do! One of those renovations, was getting a brand up-to-date heating and cooling system. We had been needing to get a up-to-date heating and cooling system for quite some time, but had sadly been neglecting it because of the lack of time. It wasn’t even a money issue; the people I was with and I just kept on forgetting about the need for a heating and cooling system! This was because our area has been having a entirely  mild Winter. We have not even needed any type of heating so far this year, and it is already December! We had to get the heating and cooling system replaced soon, though. So, right after my hubby and I finished our awesome breakfast date, I called up our local heating and cooling system replacement center, and requested that a certified Heating and Air Conditioning system worker to come out on our beach home for an estimate. The guy who answered the phone penciled me in for an appointment on the following Monday, which worked out perfectly for me. I had the morning off, so I could meet the Heating and Air Conditioning system worker, and would not even need to take any time off from work! I was so ecstatic that my husband and I had scheduled this awesome time to have breakfast. We had time to connect with each other, and now we would finally get our Heating and Air Conditioning system installed.

I don’t like this winter weather

I really want radiant floors in our lake house because of air quality reasons, and any furnace you get, air quality is a factor you should always try to consider. A gas furnace system has an air filter in locale to catch the dust. The air filter should stop dust from going into the system as well as damaging it. However, the air conditioning filter can only catch so much, however if you are not on it with those changes, the dust goes in the gas furnace as well as then blows out through the vents. Now you have dusty air quality. A heat pump is similar in that it has an air filter for the same purpose. A boiler system can use air ducts to transport the heated air through the house. If your duct coil is dirty, then the air flows through that debris as well as infects your indoor air conditions. No matter what you do with the heating, dust is always a factor. I hate dusty air quality since it affects myself and others health wise. The dust dries out our eyes as well as makes them itch. I also get sick more frequently than I used to. So I want to rip out our furnace and get some radiant floors. I don’t feel dust with be a concern with radiant flooring. It is electric mats that is the furnace. There is no air being blown or moved either. The mats are under the floorboards as well as simply warms the surfaces like heated automobile seats. No dirt, no dust as well as no issues with this type of heater. I like the system of having a low key oil furnace that keeps our air quality scrub as well as fresh.

AC in the nice restaurant

I toil as a waiter in a wonderful steakhouse, and it is not too terrible most of the time. Tips are really wonderful because the bill is so high. You usually get a wonderful clientele because of the high prices too. The thing I don’t like is the high A/C in the building. The cooling system is cranked all day, everyday. No matter the season, our building is always frigid, however my supervisor says it is because the people who dine in our steakhouse are wearing dress clothes. The women are in heavy suit jackets as well as pants, then all of us want them to be comfortable, so both of us use the a/c plan on high. I suppose terrible for the women. The women always make the mistake of coming in with small dresses as well as heels on. I think they must be frigid their butts off. I get to wear a dress shirt, tie as well as pants, but I still freeze the whole time. I try to tranathletic interest quickly through the steakhouse serving people to moderate up. I also hang out in the family room whenever possible. Ironically the only place in the steakhouse without high cooling is the family room. There are fires, burners as well as fryers in there. The family room crew should be blasted with A/C. Not us waitresses that are not really moving as well as splitting into a sweat. I suppose it is just a poorly designed cooling system. I also suppose that the steakhouse must spend money a ton in weekly bills due to keeping the place at such a low temperature year around, but can’t be easy to do that.

My man Stephen & I recently did some condo hunting, then the two of us went from looking at condos to standalone homes. The two of us finally decided on a house that we will rent for a cheap price. What we found odd was that most of the homes we looked at had more than one heating option, then you could either get a location with a ductless heat pump or a fireplace in it, however neither of those heating options seemed nice enough, then Stephen & I live in the north, but are moving down South, and living in the North makes you understand and appreciate heating. The two of us both have consistently lived with gas furnaces, boilers, radiant heated floors & furnaces are nice. Gas furnaces, or a heat pump method only works with temperatures above 40 degrees. A fireplace is more of a showpiece than a heater. But, apparently down south those are your only more than one options. Stephen & I decided on a house that had a fireplace. The two of us both are not excited about this. Fireplaces are not the greatest style of heater. If either can run by gas & be unquestionably upscale, or you need to split wood. The wood fireplace version creates soot, ash & debris all over the house. Also you smell appreciate a fire consistently, then do you know how fast wood burns out? Really fast, both of us would be breaking all of the time. The two of us plan to inspect the fireplace to see what kind it is. If it wants us to split wood, both of us are just going to get rid of it & get a gas furnace.

Why geothermal heating works

My brother Ivan is such a cheapskate. Ivan will always choose to save a few bucks & sacrifice convenience, but since I am the younger sibling, I get dragged into his lil schemes. Ivan recently purchased a new gas furnace for his house. The furnace is taller than me & wider than our fridge. The Heating & Air Conditioning supplier came to supply & set up the furnace unit for a small fee. Ivan said no way, but he did not want to pay for heating upgrades. He felt he could do the furnace set up on his own, and as for the heating delivery, our sibling has me to help. So the two of us had to take our work truck to transport his new gas furnace. The furnace was super heavy, bulky & my sibling is not the best mover! It was touch & go for a little while! But, we managed to get that heating unit in our truck & then into his home. There were a few scratches on it & our hands were raw, but it really went better than I ever thought. The worst part was really the heating upgrade. Since it is a gas gas furnace, Ivan needed gas hookups & a flue installed. What are those two things? Not sure. Ivan did not entirely know either. We spent all afternoon googling, going to stores, & moving that big heating unit around, however unless the Heating & Air Conditioning supplier asked our sibling for a kidney, anything would have been worth it! Getting a Heating & Air Conditioning professional in the house. Pay for the heating upgrade, it is really worth it.

I need a fireplace

I have so much to do before I go south for a more than a month on holiday. I have to get all of our banking in order as well as ensure I have enough money in the bank account. I have to get more than one month’s worth of birth control. I have to pack a ton of clothes that are right for the southern heat and rain. I also have to arrange for someone to watch our house. I can’t just leave our new home for more than one month in the cold winter! For starters, I need a plan for our heating system, however my sister says that heating systems can be set to low heat mode. Like a crockpot. That means the furnace will be on as well as working, however not obnoxiously so. The last thing I want is to have a super high heating bill when I get home. I don’t need the whole home heated to perfection, but, if I turn off the heating system completely, then all of us are screwed. The home would get too cold. Then our pipes would freeze and then crack. The pipes could leak water all over our home as well as cause severe damage. Then I would come home to no plumbing as well as tons of water damage. So the heating system has to be left on. I just don’t want our home to be 72 degrees when nobody is in it. So I have to set the gas furnace appropriately. The problem is that I don’t think I know I how to make our fireplace go to low heat mode. Is it a button? I don’t guess so. I am right now procrastinating on doing this horrible job.

Changing furnace parts

My mom and I are having a horrible time trying to fix the heating in our house. The up-to-date home is easily too big, not air tight and naturally quite cold due to the large trees surrounding it. So my big, up-to-date home has several gas furnaces. There is one upstairs that is hooked into our chimney. That furnace is a beast, it typically heats really well and never dies! I am pretty sure that oil furnace is almost double my age. The downstairs heating furnace is a bizarre animal all together, and our gas fireplace is in the downstairs residing room and it will occasionally not even turn on. You have to beg and plead the furnace to turn on. Once you get it on though, it will keep on heating until you manually turn it off. So the fireplace won’t turn on when it is 50 in the house. It also won’t turn off it is 73 in the house. How horrible is that? Well right now I would take 73 degrees. The outside temperatures are super cold and my whole home is 45 degrees. The gas fireplace is doing everything it can, but it can’t keep up with demand. This is where our second oil furnace in the kitchen would come into play. However, the little kitchen oil furnace has refused to turn on for a few days. The heater’s air filter light keeps blinking. Both my mom and I have tried cleaning and even replacing the air filter, the whole furnace and the area around the heater. The heating unit is still unhappy about the air filter. What could it possibly want? My mother and I are desperate to get it up and working again.

Moving is the absolute worst, especially when you are moving to another state. My boyfriend Kyle and I have to switch up a lot of things. We both need to change our mailing address plus get current drivers licenses. Kyle and I also need to change our work certifications to the new state. Also, Kyle and I need new companies for all of our regular needs! Where do we order pizza on Saturday? Where do we get Chinese food on Friday night? Where is the best grocery store? Who is our garbage lady? Plus, who do you call for plumbing troubles? There are so many essential companies that we need to find. Kyle and I both feel the three main companies we need to find are: a Heating and A/C company, a plumber, plus a pizza place. Kyle and I feel we are both cursed on HVAC systems. It does not matter if Kyle and I use a window cooling unit or a central AC, it breaks down within a few months. My boyfriend Kyle and I can only use gas or oil furnaces in our house or a huge space heater. Either one of these heating systems will catch on fire eventually. It could be that he and I don’t clean our Heating units at all. It could be we always forget about changing the air filters. It also could be that he and I are just not lucky. Either way, Kyle and I need to lock down a good Heating plus A/C company ASAP. We also will need a good plumber, because nobody wants to deal with water heaters, septic systems, or toilet issues. And then, finally, pizza delivery should be obvious as to why it is so pressing for two guys in their 20s. Everything is always better with a slice of pizza.

He didn’t fix my HVAC unit

What do you imagine a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C specialist looking like? I had consistently used the same HVAC company and they sent the same Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech, Bob. Bob was about 350 pounds, hairy, as well as he seemed to permanently smell like hamburgers. He also had a super bushy beard and his pants never seemed secure on his hips. Bob was, though, fantastic at anything HVAC related. He could clean my gas furnace in under an hour flat. He also was fantastic at finding mold in my ducts as well as putting in the proper amount of refrigerant. Any Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair could be handled by Bob. He also never left me hanging on HVAC repair or maintenance appointments. I recently moved, however, and had to get involved with a different Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business. I expected everything to be a similar experience. My new HVAC guy is particularly cute. I thought this would be a fantastic thing. I would be way more willing to have HVAC service and repairs as well as invest in better HVAC technology. However, knowing the guy is going to be cute is way more pressure. I make sure I am dressed as cute as possible with fantastic hair. I also am willing to forgive him on his mistakes. My fantastic looking HVAC guy is not the same caliber as Bob. He forgets to check the furnace for dirt and dust. My AC unit consistently has mold in it. Also, most of the time, he does not fix my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C issues. I don’t want to request a new guy though, he is particularly super cute. But, I do guess a guy like Bob would be somewhat better.

Sometimes I really feel like my life is way too difficult as it stands and then I start to get pretty down on myself or feel overwhelmed. At those times I find that it’s genuinely helpful to recall the harder times in my life and all of the hurdles I managed to overcome in those poor  conditions. For instance, I used to take almost 22 credit hours a semester while working every single morning at a cellular research facility for only minimum wage! I didn’t have even a spare moment to myself and I almost couldn’t even afford to eat, but I still made it through! Even while I was engaged in both activities in the summer, every single morning I dragged myself up out of bed to walk over a mile to work. It was constantly hot and humid outside even before 9am, so I had to slowly walk all the way there to avoid getting a heat stroke, and the walk seemed so long and stressful! Besides that, I was internally begging for any sort of relief with every step, hoping that a cool breeze would blow by the apartment building and would get some air conditioning. The only relief I received, though, was when I finally arrived at my work, where the air conditioning was continually blasting at its full power. Even better, I could walk straight past my desk as well as my lab bench, and go lay in the walk-in cooler. The powerful cooling component system kept the room at an almost constant 4 degrees Celsius, and I’ve never been so happy to have cold air before in my life.

This climate control is important

I don’t know if you’ve ever had to work at a tortuous job, but just let me tell you that it can absolutely make your whole life miserable. You can even try to reason with yourself, by saying it’s only for 40 hours during the week and after that you’ll have plenty of time to make your life exciting and otherwise fulfilling. But, that wasn’t the case in my situation. I absolutely hated my work so much that I was stressed about it even during my time away from the building. It was a borderline traumatic experience to work in that place for 3 years. Additionally, I don’t want to ever find myself in a similar situation again. You see, most people at my work were cruel and even conniving. The work was long in addition to boring, and the thermostat settings there were totally jacked. It was such a toxic environment that I used every single breaktime to take a long walk outside, not only to get away from the building, but also to absorb some fresh air outside. See, the indoor air quality was extremely exhausting inside my outdated building. I swear that they never even bothered to have the Heating or A/C plan serviced at all, and the air was stale in addition to being full of disgusting airborne contaminants. You could see the dirt floating through the air some days. It wasn’t only irritating to my respiratory tract, I even worried that the contaminated air could be full of dangerous particles too. I don’t really know what became of that building, even though I hope it was shut down because of respiratory health concerns.

I like the air filter

My wife and I obtained our cabin at an auction, and we never even went inside of it before we bought it. In fact, we’d only seen pictures of the place! But it was a public auction, and hardly anyone was there. Plus, the ramshackle cabin looked to be in pretty good shape. It also came with twenty acres worth of land, so the worst case scenario would be that we would have that to fall back on. We put out a test bid, just to see what would happen, and what do you think? We ended up winning the auction! I am telling you all this so it makes more sense when I tell you our cabin has no air conditioning system at all. Stranger yet, the bathroom is located in a shack out back. Want to hear the really unusual part? The little wooden outhouse out there has its own air conditioning system! Seems sort of backwards to me, however I think the previous owner liked to do their business with the comfort of temperature control. It’s only a small AC unit, however it is powerful as both an air filter and also as a temperature control unit. Of course, it is a pretty old (and pretty gross) outhouse, so neither of us wants to hang out in there just for the air conditioning system, no matter how great the A/C is. If I was more mechanically inclined I think I would transfer that air conditioning system up to the main house. But I really know next to nothing about Heating and Air Conditioning repair or upgrades, so I’m afraid I would mess it up in transit and then we’d have less AC than ever.

I loved the beach

Looking at the sunset in the morning, I wonder about numerous good things. I’d venture to say all of my most worthwhile creative ideas come about when I am admiring this wonderful lightshow of our sky. I guess it has something to do with the magnificent display of saturated, vibrant color. It is captivating and I find it incredibly beneficial to marvel at its wonders. All of the paintings in my house are various artists’ depictions of sunsets. Even my shower curtain illustrates the image of a tropical sunset. One may guess that surrounding myself with this imagery is a bit obsessive and might even cheapen the effect of witnessing the actual thing, but I just never tire of it. I even applied this aesthetic to my HVAC to be honest. When my wifey and I first moved into our house both of us were pretty ecstatic with the climate control method that was in venue. Everything worked well and our energy bills were very manageable. Heating and cooling seemed to be a hassle-free part of our lives. Eventually though, we had problems with the oil furnace in the house. Some kind of electrical bug kept making it turn off. Eventually my local HVAC service suggested looking for a replacement. We didn’t really want to buy a new oil furnace considering their expense. Though, at a particular point it became clear that a climate control solution needed to be found. My brother then suggested to have a nice fireplace installed. It would be a reliable and old-fashioned solution. Not to mention, a fireplace offers the same aesthetic comforting lightshow as the sunsets that I love!

The best HVAC system I’ve seen

Looking at the sunset on any given morning, I know of several great things, but all of our most worthwhile creative ideas come about when I am simply admiring the great lightshow of the sky. I know it has something to do with the magnificent display of vibrant colors. It is captivating and I find it incredibly easy to marvel at its wonders. All of the paintings in our apartment are artists’ depictions of sunsets. Even our shower curtain illustrates the image of a tropical sunset. One may feel that surrounding myself with this imagery is a bit obsessive and might even water down the effect of seeing the actual thing, however I really never tire of it. I even applied this aesthetic to our Heating and Air Conditioning system. When the wife and I first moved into our apartment we were pretty content with the temperature control system that was in place. Everything worked well and our bills were not terribly high. Heating and cooling seemed to be a hassle-free space in our lives. Eventually though we had troubles with the oil furnace in the house. Some kind of electrical bug kept making it shut down. Eventually our local Heating and Air Conditioning service company suggested looking for a replacement. We did not really want to buy a new oil furnace, considering how costly they are. At a certain point it became clear though that a temperature control solution had to be found. My brother then suggested just having a nice fireplace installed. It would be a reliable old-fashioned solution. A fireplace also offers the same aesthetic comforting light show that sunsets do!

Everything worked well & our utility bills were not really high. The heating & cooling seemed to be a hassle-free part of our lives. Eventually though both of us had concerns with the oil furnace in the house. Some kind of electrical bug kept forcing it to turn off. Eventually our local Heating, Ventilation and A/C service suggested us to start looking for a replacement. We did not truly want to buy a new oil furnace considering how pricey they can be. At a certain point it became clear though that a temperature control solution had to be found. My sibling then commanded  just having a nice fireplace installed. It would be a reliable old-fashioned solution. On top of this, a fireplace offers the same aesthetic comforting lightshow as sunsets!

This is quite the light show

Looking at the sunset on any given night, I ponder about several great things, all of my most worthwhile creative ideas come about when I am admiring this great lightshow in our sky. I recognize it has something to do with the magnificent display of saturated, vibrant color. It is captivating & I find it remarkably easy to meditate on its wonders. All of the paintings in my lake house are multiple artists’ depictions of sunsets. Even my shower curtain illustrates the image of a tropical sunset. One may recognize that surrounding myself with this imagery is a bit obsessive & might even cheapen the effect of seeing the actual thing, but I never tire of it. I even applied this aesthetic to my Heating & A/C system to be honest. When my wife & I first moved into our lake house both of us were pretty thrilled with the climate control system that was in it. Everything worked well & our energy bills were not too high. Heating & cooling seemed to be a hassle-free section of our lives. Eventually we had troubles with the gas furnace in the house. Some kind of electrical bug kept making it shut off. Eventually my local Heating & A/C maintenance recommended looking for a upgrade. We did not actually want to buy a new gas furnace considering how costly they are. At a particular point it became clear that a climate control solution had to be found. My sister then recommended just having a nice fireplace installed. It would be a reliable old-fashioned solution. Also, a fireplace offers the same aesthetic comforting light show that sunsets do!

Having a little party after lunch

My son and I decided to host a dress dinner celebration. We were very much inspired by a show we have been watching lately. We decided to put on our best clothes and make some high end gourmet recipes that we have never attempted. Jackets and ties, or full length dresses and gowns only, no tee shirts or flip flops allowed at the event! We spent a whole month beforehand firmly working on the menu and doing several taste tests, and making sure the food would be delicious and divine. A several course meal, completely with cocktails and dessert!  When the night arrived, my son and I were so elated and excited. We were all set with food and decor, and of course that is when the central HVAC plan decided to cut out on us. This simply would not do, with all the candles we had lit, the air conditioning was absolutely necessary to just to keep the house of fair temperature. I looked over all of the A/C equipment, and even evaluated out the HVAC duct, but found no apparent issue. Even the air filter was pretty clean, so that was not the issue, either. Finally, I realized that we had just been running the air conditioner too much that day, and it had overloaded the grid and blown a circuit. A quick trip to the circuit breakers in the basement and the air conditioner was going strong. I adjusted the settings on the temperature control, and closed off the air vents in the back rooms, so that hopefully the A/C could stay running all night without blowing any circuit breaker again.

I had a very delicious lunch

My child and I decided to host an extravagant dress lunch party. We were most certainly inspired by a show we have been enjoying lately, to put on our best clothes and make some high end gourmet recipes that we have never attempted before. Jackets and ties, or full length dresses and gowns only, no tee shirts or flip flops! We spent an entire month beforehand crafting a menu and doing some taste tests. We also made sure the food would be divine. A 3 course meal, and cocktails complete with a dessert!  When the massive night arrived, my child and I were so very excited. We were all set with food and decor, and of course that is when the central Heating, Ventilation and A/C systems decided to give us issues. This simply would not do, with all the candles we had going the a/c was needed to just to keep the beach house at a fair temperature. I looked over all of the A/C equipment, and even checked out the air duct, however I unfortunately found no immediate issue. Even the air filter was still pretty clean, so that was not the issue, either. Finally, I realized that we had just been running the air conditioner too much that day, and it had overloaded the grid and simply blown a circuit. A quick trip to the circuit breakers in the garage and the air conditioner was going strong yet again. I adjusted the settings on the control unit, and closed off the air vents to the back rooms. So hopefully the A/C can stay running all night without blowing the circuit breaker again.

We decided to put on our best clothes & make some high end gourmet recipes that we have never attempted before. Jackets & ties, full length dresses & gowns only. No tee shirts or flip flops allowed whatsoever! We spent a whole week beforehand earnestly working on the menu & doing some taste tests, & making sure the food would be delicious. A four course meal with cocktails & dessert!  When the huge night arrived, our child & I were completely elated. We were all set with food & decor, & of course that is when the central Heating & Air Conditioning system decided to completely die on us. This simply would not do, with all the candles we had going the air conditioner was needed to just to keep the loft at a tolerable temperature. I looked over all of the AC equipment, & thoroughly cleaned out the ductwork, however I found no immediate issue. Even the air filter was still pretty clean, so that was not the issue, either. Finally, I realized that we had just been running the air conditioner system too much lately, & it had overloaded the grid & blown a circuit. A quick trip to the circuit breakers in the garage & the air conditioner system was going strong again. I adjusted the settings on the control unit, & closed off the air vents to the back rooms.

There’s far too many drafts in our home

I have done a lot over the course of my forty six years on the Earth. I have been a paratrooper in the Navy, traveled across the world, had good paying tasks in four different fields of work, and am now embarking on my third marriage. My first marriage was one of those middle school love affairs/leaving for the military things that never really works out no matter how hard you try. We simply just grew apart over time being so far away from each other. I moved on and eventually met the love of my life. We just got married last Spring and have been saving to buy a new home which we just closed on! It’s an old fixer upper that we got at an auction and I am actually happy to get to job making our up-to-date new home great. One of the major hurdles will be the Heating and A/C system, of which there is none. This older home was built back in the 1750’s and for whatever reason the last people residing there must never felt the need for an oil furnace or an a/c. There is a attractive wood stove on the first floor that will help mitigate heating costs, however this is a several story floor home with an attic and I just don’t see how that one stove could heat the whole house. Maybe pretty much everyone slept in that one room, who knows? I had a couple of Heating and A/C companies come to us to appraise the task and bid against each other. No matter what it will be expensive, however it will be worth.

I’m going to start over

I have seen & done a lot over the course of my forty five years on the Earth. I have been a paratrooper in the Army, traveled across the world, had wonderful paying works in four different countries, & am now embarking on my second marriage. My first marriage was one of those middle school affairs/leaving for the military things that never works out no matter what. We just grew apart over time so far away from each other. I moved on & eventually met my current love of my life. We got married last month & have been saving to buy a current lake house which we just closed on! It’s an seasoned fixer upper that we got for cheap at an auction. I am very gleeful to get started making our lake house great. One of the major hurdles will be the Heating & Air Conditioning system, which there is none currently. This lake house was built back in the 1740’s. For whatever reason the last people living there never felt a need for a furnace or A/C. There is a beautiful wood stove on the first floor that will help mitigate some of the heating costs, but this is a several story lake house with an attic & I just don’t see how that single stove could heat the whole house. Maybe everyone slept in that one room, who knows? I had a couple of Heating & Air Conditioning companies come in here to appraise the task & bid against each other. No matter what it will be very pricey, but it will be worth it in the end I bet.

Buying a fixer upper

My husband and I had a chance to purchase my grandmother’s house and we jumped at the opportunity. We were warned that it had some concerns. Neither of us were in the mood to hear about any them because we were excited to have an actual house of our own. Up until that point we have lived in a rundown old mobile home so this would give us a house instead and that was all we were focused on. We  now been in the house for almost a year, and now we see what they were trying to tell us at the time. The house needs are more energy efficient windows, however currently, we are still saving to have them replaced. the windows are metal, and they are really little more than a piece of glass to keep the bugs out.  The insulation around them is dry rotted and they are mostly single pane windows anyway. Sitting by the windows in the winter is like being in front of an air conditioning  vent; You can feel the cold air coming right through them! Of course, this means that our HVAC system has to work a whole lot harder to compensate for the outside air let in by our windows. The end result is that we pay very high utility bills all winter long.  At least for now, we are thankful that the HVAC system works as well as it does.  The warmer temperatures will be here in a month or so and then maybe we can make some progress on repairs.Looking back, buying the house was a risky investment but we are still glad to be out of that trailer.

Renovating my HVAC unit

The concept of buying a fixer upper is such a romantic notion in our day, but I am of the opinion that they are not as glamorous as they seem! I currently live in what most people would term a fixer upper home. When we moved in, we knew that the house would need some significant renovations, but we did not have the budget to complete everything at once. What we decided to do is tackle one project at a time. Work has progressed very slowly because of this plan. It seems that every project we try to tackle turns out to be more trouble and more expensive than we thought! Our most recent project was trying to install a new air conditioning and heating unit. We had spent several months price checking different air conditioning and heating units, and we finally picked out an air conditioning and heating unit that we thought would fit our needs. Unfortunately, when the HVAC specialist came out to do the install, he told us that the A/C unit that we had chosen was not large enough to accommodate the square footage in our house. Then, he told us that we would need to install new ductwork as well because the ductwork we had currently was very old, leaky, and thus, not energy efficient. He explained that getting a new air conditioning and heating unit would not solve all of our problems unless we replaced the ductwork too. Something that we thought would be a simple issue has now turned into a big headache. I wish that we had not joined the fixer upper craze!

I think the A/C went down

After we graduated from college we decided to take a cross-country track. Neither of us had ever been out of our state, and we were looking forward to seeing some historical sites. Even though we all had our own vehicles, we decided to take the one that got the best gas mileage. None of us anticipated having troubles on the trip, which was our first mistake. We weren’t prepared, financially, or otherwise for the problems we encountered along the way. We barely had enough money to get to the other side of the country so when they came up, we were really in a bind. We were on fourth day of the trip, when the air conditioning stopped working. The air conditioning system wasn’t blowing cold air at all. Every time we tried to turn the system on the inside of the car heated up quickly. We were in the middle of nowhere I had to drive another 75 miles just to find an exit with a gas station. The service technician informed us that the repairs were going to cost well over $200 and we had no choice but to call our parents and ask for help. With barely enough funds to make the trip ourselves we knew that we had no way of paying for the HVAC  system to get fixed. We also knew that the rest of the trip would be miserable if we had to drive in the summer heat with no way to cool off. The perfect cells was great but we learned some very valuable life lessons along the way, including making sure that your vehicle is running properly before you set out on such a lengthy drive.

The next town over

A road trip to celebrate my recent graduation seemed like a great idea.  My boyfriend and I had very little money but we figured we could at least afford gas in the car and a few nights of camping along the way.  We were young and in love, what more could you ask for.  Well that trip proved us wrong on many levels. Neither of us had ever been out of our state, and we were looking forward to seeing some historical sites along the way. We each had our own cars but chose to take the one that was best on gas, my boyfriend’s old Toyota. With our youth and carefree attitudes, neither of us anticipated having problems on the trip. We barely had enough money to get where we were going and home again.  We were on our third morning of the trip, when the HVAC system in the car stopped working. It stopped blowing cold air so we turned it off and rolled the windows down. The problem came when the car started to overheat.  Without the air being drawn across the engine from the HVAC unit, it started running dangerously hot. We pulled over to the side of the road and an older gentleman told us to run the heat until we reached the next town where they could look at the car for us. It was 85 degrees out and that was a miserable twenty miles to the next town for sure. With no money for repairs, we had to call our parents to bail us out.  We spent the rest of the trip arguing over who was to blame over this or that. Years later, I have no idea what became of the “love of my life” and I am very careful to have the HVAC system in my car and home serviced on a regular basis.

This appears to be outdated

I have an oil furnace in our home that is at least twenty-seven years old.  The heating plan was already installed before I bought the house, plus it also was not genuinely new.  I have been diligent about scheduling professional repair every fall to optimize the performance, efficiency, and reliability of the oil furnace.  Despite our efforts, the oil furnace is starting show the wear and tear of a genuinely long service life.  According to our heating and A/C supplier, I should have upgraded the heating device more than nine years ago.  She says it is not running at peak capacity or energy efficiency anymore.  For the past numerous years, whenever the oil furnace starts up, it makes a loud, grinding sound that is a bit horrifying.  While it operates, the furnace rattles and is so noisy, I need to maximize the volume on our TV to hear it.  Since the oil furnace runs continuously, this is an ongoing annoyance.  Although the oil furnace cycles non-stop, it has a lot of difficulty handling severe weather.  The temperature in our local section is often well below freezing, and our current home gets unpleasantly chilly.  It has no effect on how high I set the thermostat, there will be cold corners in numerous rooms.  My monthly heating bills have steadily risen over the years, plus the oil furnace is a tremendous drain on our budget.  I understand that I would rapidly recover the investment with a more current oil furnace through lower energy bills over the winter.  After a bit of research, I’ve l found that current furnaces offer superior safety features, are much quieter, plus achieve up to 98% AFUE ratings.  While it makes perfect sense to upgrade the aged oil furnace, I dislike giving up on it while it’s still working.

The heater is blasting

I attend school in the northeastern section of the country, plus I choose to live in a small apartment off campus.  I commute to my classes, however there is quite limited parking available.  Frequently, I end up parking over a mile away from the building.  The weather in my location is mostly quite freezing and wet.  For most of the university year, the temperature stays right around freezing, plus it’s either raining or snowing.  I carry a large backpack plus walk through rain, snow, wind, and brutal wind chill. I make sure to wear my heavy boots, large coat, knitted hat and scarf, however I’m always relieved to step inside the heated building. Unfortunately, some of the classes are located in pretty aged buildings and are not honestly comfortable.  For my biochemistry course, I have spent many hours in a cold lecture hall.  Although there are exposed air ducts across the ceiling, plus vents located throughout the hall, I never experience any heat.  I regularly keep my coat on and shiver the complete time.  For my molecular spectroscopy class, I am in a much more modern site, however there is a group of women who always open windows.  They never provide a thought to the fact that they are wasting energy, by allowing in cold freezing air, plus making all the people shiver.  The heating plan runs non stop, however the heat flies right out the window.  I’m guaranteed it is costing the university a fortune to run the heating plan at maximum capacity, and it also puts a relaxing deal of strain on the heating equipment, which forces the components to work much harder than required.

Energy saving information

When my girlfriend, Jessica, and I initially leased a small house, we were particularly ecstatic with the current appliances, large open kitchen, abundance of closets, and big backyard.  After residing there for a few months, I was anxious from the cost of the utilities.  Our monthly utility bill was excessive.  I instantaneously started looking for ways on how to trim down our energy use.  I then saw that the A/C seemed to be starting frequently, and running for particularly long sessions.  Despite raising the temperature control setting by multiple degrees, the air conditioner was absolutely struggling to meet the requirements.  I began by simply replacing the air filter, and I was astonished by the amount of dirt and debris I saw.  It seemed that the A/C had not been fully cleaned or taken care of in a particularly long time.  When I took the component apart, I discovered that it was terribly blocked with lint, dust, pet fur, spider webs, and even mold.  It was now obvious that the air conditioner was struggling to produce sufficient airflow, and I’m sure our indoor air conditions was a health risk.  Despite that I am not trained in air conditioner servicing, I made the decision to attempt to wash the cooling machine.   I used a shop vac, a clean brush, and I managed to remove a large amount of buildup within the unit.  I was anxious that the high level of debris would clog my vacuum cleaner.  The process took me well over an hour to finish the whole cleaning and then to put the A/C back together.  The effort was definitely worth it, and I was gratified in the results.  The A/C now supplies a substantially larger amount of cool air, and runs for more reasonable cycles.  The house is cleaner, much more comfortable, and definitely healthier.

I need the air conditioner fixed

Last August, while in a summertime heatwave, my central cooling machine abruptly malfunctioned.  It quit running, and I was unable get it started again.  I tried cleaning the air filter, adjusted the settings, changed the batteries on the thermostat, plus made sure there was power to the equipment.  Since my expertise in air conditioner repairs is minimal, I figured it was best that I call a licensed professional.  The malfunction occurred in the middle of a long weekend, plus I was unwilling to wait for regular corporation hours.  The outside temperature was ninety-three degrees, plus the relative humidity was absolutely horrendous.  My house was warm, sticky, and horribly unpleasant.  It would be impossible that I would be able to sleep or find comfort while running a few box fans.  I was willing to pay for an emergency repair regardless of the cost to have my air conditioner operational again.  I called a local heating and A/C company, plus was told that a serviceman would arrive at my house within the hour.  Three hours later, when there was no sign of a repair truck, I called the heating and A/C company back.  I was assured that the serviceman was simply running late because of another task, and she would be at my door in the next half an hour.  I waited for another hour and called again.  This time, I was sent straight to their voicemail.  I was totally frustrated by this point, I decided to try a new heating and A/C company.  When I was again promised to be repaired within the hour, I was skeptical.  I was pleasantly surprised when a heating and A/C contractor finally arrived twenty-five minutes later.

A generous repair

I remember this past Sunday morning, when we went to church. The air conditioning system in the church literally quit working during the service, but it was getting incredibly hot inside plus the pastor was asking the members of the congregation if we would be willing to donate to help fix the church’s air conditioning system. He was going on about it in such a way that people felt inclined to put cash in the collection plate. Most everyone donated some cash. I knew that I genuinely had to because my partner would be terribly disappointed if I did not. I spoke with the pastor after the service and let him know that I had a great friend who happened to be a skilled HVAC serviceman. I said that I would talk to him and that he would more than likely supply them with a nice discount for the HVAC repair at the church. The pastor was pleased with this, and he thanked me. I contacted my friend about it plus of course he was willing to help. He said for the people of the church, he would even be willing to do it at no charge, and when my neighbor came over with her tools, then spoke with the pastor, he was truly grateful. My neighbor had the air conditioning system repaired in just a few hours. He was telling us all about the repair, though it sounded much like Chinese to me as I am not mechanically inclined. The whole congregation was told about this generous repair offered by my friend so all the people gave him all kinds of gifts including baskets of delicious food. He was so overwhelmed with the generosity and gratitude of the people of our church. He was glad to be of service.
