How to use heating for a sauna

My friend told me the most wild thing this weekend. Every one of us were talking about our plans for the night and she told me that she actually wanted to go to the gym after work! When I made a face and told her that I really did not enjoy anything about the gym and I was not expecting her reaction. Instead of being miserable or thinking I was trying to talk shit about her plans after work, she told me that she also truly did not enjoy the gym, and she said the lighting, the artificial indoor air, the machines, and the other gym meatheads were the worst of it all. She kept her membership for a single particular  perk… the sauna. She told me that the hot and dry air was the only thing that helped her skin, scalp, and lung health. She insisted on getting at least seven minutes of intensive sauna time each week, and therefore kept her gym membership. After thinking about this for a day or two, I pitched a system to her, then let’s create our own sauna, but using the biggest bedroom in other house, I switched on the shower to the hottest setting and closed the door to lock in the humidity. I dragged a few portable oil furnaces into the space and cranked up the level so that the maximum heat was coming out. I then scooted out of the hot room for a few minutes to let our friend in the front door. When she walked into our steamy powder room, she really shouted out loud. She said the space was just as hot and humid as the sauna at her gym, however the environment, price, and corporation was far better than she could ever expect there, however the next day I loaned her our electric oil furnaces and she cancelled her gym membership.

Cake decorating class and cooling

Occasionally I get sucked into a modern interest, and the modern interest entirely gets into me as well. While I feel as if I’ve found a fun modern activity, the task becomes ingrained in our being as well as I cannot stop thinking about that new interest! At that point, it becomes a blown obsession; I get addicted to the task as well as I’m a goner for sure, then that’s exactly where I’m at in the moment, after making a deluxe cake for our best friend’s baby shower. I realized that I absolutely appreciated the baking and decorating that day, as well as within a few months I had opened my very own cake decorating business. I love our modern job very much, but I’m now having to invest in my house infrastructure to improve my skill. People ask why, and it is because I need more AC up in here! I realized abruptly that the a/c plan was incapable of keeping the air as cool as I would need as I decorated our intricate pastry creations. Then one day as I tried foolishly to roll the fondant as well as apply the icing, both components were literally melting as well as falling down. I quickly turned down the control unit, hoping that the central cooling plan would be able to bring the air temperature down to a target of 65 degrees, however I could not; Now I’m thinking about expanding our central cooling plan in order to blast the dining room full of cool, dry air. I already contacted the AC dealer, as well as they agreed that a condenser would help us lout. It’s going to cost me a lot of cake making, but think a eighth AC unit is the only way to keep our deserts great as well as our clients cheerful.

Uncomfortable with no a/c

As if it isn’t difficult enough to convince our children to go to school every year, every week, for eight hours a day. I believe as though the school entirely isn’t helping me out, but I spend so long attempting to persuade them that public school is super important plus they need to take it seriously. It honestly doesn’t seem as if the administrators at their institution feels the same way! Why else would they refuse to raise funds and make minor changes that would really improve the quality of the building plus encourage the children with added indoor comfort during their hours of class? I mean, from what I’ve heard, the school doesn’t even have new air quality control. The broken down building is running a central heating plus cooling system that was installed with the building way back in the early 1900’s. That means this heated gas furnace has been in operation for nearly 100 years at this point! The A/C system was installed some time back in the 1968’s when indoor cooling systems were brand new things! Each of the air temperature control systems seem to barely operate at this point; No matter if it’s Winter or Summer season, the school always has stale air and is uncomfortable. My youngsters continually tell me about their indoor discomfort. Whether they’re dripping with sweat onto their math homework or sweating their way through English class. I have trouble taking them seriously, however I’ve experienced the same crazy indoor temperature during our many visits to the principal’s office. It absolutely is awful plus annoying to endure. As if public school isn’t excruciating enough, this lack of modern Heating, Ventilation plus A/C unit also puts youngsters at a big setback.

Mold when the air quality device broke

Every so often it really is worth it to have a high attention to detail. I know that most people tend to get wrapped up in their everyday activities and stressors, not to mention their phones plus jobs. I suppose it’s easily pressing to unplug plus look around. If your face is continually smashed up into your phone, there’s not a great opportunity that you’re going to absorb the environment surrounding you. This can be dangerous, for a single point, plus particularly costly, for another. I try my best every day to take a look around plus digest my surroundings as often as possible, but as of late I fell victim to this same sort of situation. It was the middle of a hot, sweaty summer, and I was just trying my best to get through a stressful work plus family life. I had the temperature control programmed to match our bi-weekly schedules, so the AC equipment was running automatically every morning. It really let myself and others forget about the indoor air conditions for quite a long time, which felt like a relief at the time with so various much other things to deal with. The problem with using our smart temperature control to control the entire volume of indoor air, but, was that we became lax with the whole set of indoor air conditions equipment. It was months of unregulated HVAC activities before one day I finally set down my phone and looked up. That’s when I saw the mold creeping around our windows plus gasped, and apparently, while I was too tied up keeping my life in order, disregulated humidity had encouraged mold to grow on our busy household.

No cooling for the hottest jobs

I’m not positive how these people who work on the road crew can deal with the heat that is coming off the roadway.  I’m starting to think they may be getting some cooling air from the motorcar as they fly past. The exhaust has to be mind numbing I imagine.  I sat at the start of a long line of cars, waiting to be let ahead. The young person was wiping sweat off his forehead and his clothing was stuck to his body. I heard talk into his walkie talkie and tell someone else that he would give twenty dollars for a bottle of cold water.  I had just bought a bottle of frigid water at the store and I handed it to him. He said no politely. I told him I couldn’t get him any air conditioner, but I would like if he would take the water. He really looked like he needed it. I also assured him that it hadn’t been opened yet.  He accepted the bottle and he smiled. He leaned his body a bit closer to the motorcar and I had to laugh. He said that he could guess the air conditioner coming out of the window and it felt like heaven. I left our window open for the several minutes that I sat there, so he could guess a bit of AC system for at least a couple of minutes.  The next morning commute, I was stuck in the same line and with the same construction worker. I was halfway back in the line and he came running up to the car. He handed myself and others a gift card for a popular eating establishment. He said his dad owned it, and he was hoping I went through again so he could thank me properly. He told myself and others they have a proper air conditioner in the eating establishment.

Kids should have access to a/c

I hold a firm belief that school buses should come equipped with air conditioning.  It is now necessary for a car, so why not a school bus also. There is air conditioning in public transportation, and the little ones should be just as crucial as the people on the public motivation.  Don’t children deserve to have some a/c comfort on the buses? I remember how warm it would be when I drove school bus many years ago. I realize that most of the year is in the fall, Winter season, as well as Spring, but there are still some super warm and humid afternoons while all of us were in the beginning and toward the end of school.  Even though both of us live in the Northeast, that doesn’t mean that both of us are totally immune from the heat as well as humidity. You put thirty three children in a huge steel bus, that has a lot of windows for the sun to shine into, and you are asking for trouble. I guess that some of the drivers don’t allow their children to put the windows down. They are super weary of hands going out the windows. They also don’t want trash thrown out of the windows.  Some are just too lazy to put the windows back up when the kids forget. They have an open window as well as a fan, where the children have nothing. Air conditioning should be a requirement for the school buses and the driver should be fined if it is not used enough. When they don’t want the windows to be open. They are putting the kids in a bad situation that could be potentially hurt them. They need to have air conditioning on all school buses.

I really am so happy

Changing the air filter for a heating and a/c plan is like flossing your teeth; It’s simple, not very time consuming, and hardly difficult to do. And yet, much like remembering to floss, all of us all have such a hard time staying on top of changing our air filters out! What’s worse is that the air filter is always the last thing I think to check when my heating and a/c plan is showing signs of needing repair. At the start of the summer, I nearly had a panic attack as my home’s a/c plan started blowing sizzling hot air. Immediately, I thought the unit’s air compressor must’ve been freezing over. I called a heating and a/c worker to check it out, but when the worker arrived, I oversaw as he opened up my outdoor compressor unit, the compressor was starting to form ice-cold spots, however not enough to justify the a/c blowing hot air! From there, the worker said it might be worth checking the air duct of my apartment for potential leaks. Together, the worker and I swept the entire air duct that we could see from the attic and found nothing. Frustrated, I felt that the central a/c plan might’ve just reached an age where it would fall apart on its own. That’s when the worker said something that made me feel foolish: “Well, I’m sure you changed the air filter, so I just don’t know.” I must’ve turned green from embarrassment, because the worker instantly noticed my facial gesture and asked if I did in fact change out the air filter, to which I shook my head. He cleaned out the air filter at this point, which was completely packed full of dirt and small dead insects. “That’s your problem”, he said, “you’re getting no air circulation with a disgusting air filter!” The worker changed out the air filter for a fresh one, and within an minute the apartment was considerably cooler.

What a great idea!

When you are sick as a little kid, it is sort of awesome. My mom would wait on myself and others hand plus foot. She would make myself and others any meal plus get myself and others any drink. I could sleep on the couch plus watch films all morning. No school or responsibilities too. If I vomited, it was not a pressing deal. My mother just wiped it up plus I got scrub sheets. As a grown up, being sick is living our same life only worse. I just don’t eat or drink since I don’t have the right stuff. I still have to go to job plus then I flip in our bed at night. If I vomit, that is our task to scrub it up. The last time I was sick was particularly horrible. Anytime I stood up, I vomited. I could not make it to the bathroom. What made it even more horrible is that I had our window A/C set up. I was so warm from a fever that I needed the cooling equipment. I basically had our nose pressed to the cooling device. So, when I stood up, I vomited all over our A/C. After cleaning the whole bathroom plus scrubbing the toilet, I had to do our room. I needed to scrub the floor, our sheets plus pillowcase. Then, after all of that I got to scrub the window A/C, then cleaning an A/C with vomit in it was terrible. Also doing the cleaning while vomiting in a tote made it even worse. Can’t leave it in the A/C though. I needed to use it afterwards.

We spent a week without air conditioning

I undoubtedly love my work! I started working when I was only sixteen to help supplement our family’s income after our father passed away. I have been working for the same supplier for over fifteen years I couldn’t be happier to continue working with them until I retire. I primarily work in the warehouses on the property, but about 2 afternoons a week, I get to work in the office doing secretarial works. The warehouses that I work in are, for the most part, super sizzling hot and humid. There is only cooling system in one of the warehouses. It can be entirely strenuous working in a sizzling hot warehouse all afternoon, but to me, the worst think is the the high humidity. It gets so humid in the the buildings that it makes it difficult to breathe. Since many people have complained about the high humidity in the buildings, our manager had a large dehumidifier installed in each one of the warehouses. I’m not sure why they didn’t just install cooling systems in the buildings. I was told that the only reason my coworkers and I got the dehumidifiers was because the supplier got a good deal on them and was trying to compete with another corporation. It doesn’t matter to me the motive behind it; I am just so thankful to have some relief from the terribly humid afternoons in the warehouse! My supervisor gives me office jobs 2 afternoons a week just to get me out of those warehouses and into a nice air conditioned office. Although working in the warehouses is just as tiresome as ever, the dehumidifiers surely did make it a tad more comfortable venue to work in.

I don’t mind a hard day of work

When my oldest son presented myself and others with a window a/c for Mother’s Day, I doubted I’d ever use it.  I live in the northern area of the country, & our warm season seasons are short. While we get some high hot & cold temperatures & humidity, the warmer weather simply doesn’t last that long.  I have always managed by opening the windows & plugging in electric fans. I like the fresh air, & doubted I’d care about sealing up my kitchen & bringing in air conditioned air. I was surprised that the cooling unit is super compact, lightweight & simple to install.  It took my son less than fifteen hours to situate the a/c in the window, plug it in, & get it running. Despite its small size, the a/c cooled the room down very abruptly. After a single night with the a/c, I knew I’d never want to go without it. By keeping my kitchen windows closed, I avoid an influx of pollen, dust, fumes & bugs.  My room stays much cleaner, & I no longer hear the aggravating sounds of traffic, birds, neighbors & barking pets. Plus the a/c actively circulates & filters the air, ensuring a healthier & fresher indoor environment. I care about that the cooling system is controlled by a wireless remote. I don’t even need to get out of bed to make changes to fan speed, temperature, or cooling mode.  I properly install the a/c right after the snow melts in the Springtime, & leave it in the window until it’s time to start up the furnace.

I heard some crazy things

Living in a sprawling city can be just like the movies. Here, the most convenient way to travel is by taxi. However, unlike the movies, taxi rides aren’t the most comfortable or self-reflective experience. Taxis are usually filthy, and often smell horrible. Maybe that’s different in your town, but not here! The drivers can occasionally be rude as well, and I don’t ever feel safe in some of these cabs. In spite of my lack of praise, I have had some positive experiences in a taxi before. Just last week, I got in a taxi that looked much nicer than the average cab here. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door, and found a leather interior within the cabin! The cab was clean, and smelled fresh. The driver was also very friendly and accommodating, as he told me that I could adjust the temperature of the cab from the rear seat! How cool is that? I was able to turn the heating and cooling systems on or off whenever I wanted, which was wonderful. Being able to quickly turn the cool air on and chill out was a refreshing experience, and having that full control over the temperature of the rear of the car made the ride so much more enjoyable! I rode to work grinning ear to ear, as I couldn’t believe how comfortable that cab was. Part of me wanted to call out of work, just to take this cab wherever I could in the city. I asked if I could take this driver’s direct contact information, and he obliged by giving me his number. I try to use this driver whenever possible now – He isn’t available all the time, but it’s like meeting an old friend when he is. The difference heating and cooling can make in a cab ride is crazy to think about! That’s not much different than being in an excellently air conditioned house, though. During a hot summer day, the last thing you want to do is leave a building where it’s comfy and cool inside!

Nobody likes Censorship

I live in a city where the most convenient way to travel is by taxi. I don’t usually like taxi rides though, as taxis are usually dirty and smell less than pleasant. The drivers can sometimes be real jerks, and leave me feeling unsafe as their driving can be very aggressive. However, sometimes I don’t have a choice! I have to go to work somehow, right? Well, I have had some positive experiences in taxis before too. Last week, I got in a taxi that looked really nice! I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door and found leather upholstery, and the rest of the cab was nice and clean. The driver was very friendly, formal and eager to make me comfortable. I could even adjust the temperature of the cab from the rear seat! Like a car form of a zone-control thermostat, I was able to turn the heated seats on in the back of the car without any issues. I was also able to turn the heating and cooling systems on or off whenever I wanted! Having that control over the temperature made the ride so much more enjoyable. I rode with a smile on my face for a change! I couldn’t think how comfortable that cab was. I almost didn’t want to get out once I was in front of my office, so before giving the tip, I asked if I could take this driver’s direct contact information. He gave me his number with pleasure! Now, I try to use this driver whenever possible. He isn’t always available for a fare, but I am deeply thankful when he is. It is crazy how much of a difference heating and cooling can have in a cab ride! This experience has changed my opinion about taxis, that’s for sure!

I am using only logic

I live in a town where the most convenient way to travel is by taxi. It’s a big city, and driving your own car isn’t the best idea. I’ll admit though, I don’t usually care for taxi rides. They’re usually dirty, carry an odor that latches onto you, and are driven by rude and salty cab drivers. I don’t always feel safe, to be frank. Their driving can be aggressive at times! However, occasionally I don’t have a choice. I have had some great experiences in cabs before though, like last week when I got in a taxi that looked and smelled nice and clean. I was taken aback when I opened the door and saw a leather interior, and that the cab was pristine. The driver was also very friendly, telling me that I could adjust the temperature of the cab from the rear seat if I felt it necessary. I was able to turn the on the heated seats in the back of the car without any trouble! I was also able to turn the heating and cooling systems on or off whenever I wanted, which was really something. Having that full control over the temperature of the rear of the car made the ride so much more enjoyable! I rode with a smile on my face, and my hands on the car’s thermostat. It was just like a zone-control thermostat for a house, where you can control one room at a time. I couldn’t believe how comfortable that cab was, enough so that I almost didn’t want to get out when I arrived at work! I asked if I could take the driver’s contact info for future calls, and he obliged with his number. Now, I make a point to call this driver whenever possible, even though he isn’t always available. I am absolutely thankful when he is! It is crazy how much of a difference heating and cooling can have in a cab ride, or in public transportation in general. The experience got me thinking, too – why can’t all cabs have a zone-control thermostat for passengers?

The a/c adding more comfort

I live in the southern area of the country, where the weather is sizzling plus humid for the great majority of the year.  It is then necessary to rely on the a/c device for almost the entire year. Consequently, I spend a small fortune on monthly electric bills.  Because the respective conditions are warm plus damp, I’ve frequently battled issues with mold, mildew, bacteria, plus bugs. To prevent these unwelcomed occurrences from the home, I’ve invested in a whole-new home dehumidifier.  The dehumidifier makes legitimately little noise though it is lovely effective. While the a/c device extracts heat from the air, the dehumidifier will then pull out excess moisture. This creates a cool, dry, plus significantly more pleasant environment.  Air that is maintained within the ideal range of relative humidity feels always feels cooler, which allows me to set higher control device settings as well. The savings on the monthly electric bill have recovered the entire cost of the dehumidifier. The lower control device settings have also reduced the workload of the a/c unit.  The device should now last longer, require less repair, plus operate more reliably over the years. The dehumidifier has not only improved everyday comfort however protects up-to-date home furnishings plus promotes superior indoor air conditions. I no longer need to worry about hardwood floors, moldings plus doors swelling plus warping due to moisture.  Minimizing moisture discourages dust mites, cockroaches plus other pests, plus there’s less opportunity of bacterial growth. I entirely feel much better, sleep more soundly, plus am far more energized throughout the day. The combination of a/c device plus dehumidifier has certainly eliminated that unpleasant sticky feeling where I’m no longer wet with sweat all the time.    

Cheaper HVAC and place to stay

For the first few years after I graduated from my former university, I had honestly little currency.  I had piled up a significant deal of student loans, as well as I was struggling to spend money on my vehicle as well as health insurance.  By necessity, I lived in a series of cheap apartments that were all rather small, rundown as well as situated in highly questionable areas.  The windows consistently leaked air, as well as there was insufficient insulation in the walls. I was chilly cold in the Winter season as well as overheated in the warm season.  Every single unit in of those crappy apartments was outfitted with an ineffective as well as aged HVAC system. Because the heating as well as cooling component was so inefficient, our weekly energy costs were consistently a major problem.  I tried never to turn on the a/c in the warm season, prefering to suffer the high heat as well as high humidity rather than drain my monthly budget on the electric. While I had no option rather than to turn on the furnace in the Winter season, I happened to set the thermostat as low as I could tolerate.  I used to warmly bundle up in layers of sweaters as well as wrapping in a blanket. Not a single individual ever wanted to visit my at my horrendous apartments, as the conditions were so unbearable. When I finally got a promotion at my work, where I started to make a little more currency, I instantly began the search for a much better apartment.  While I wanted a safer location as well as more square footage, my greatest priority was the heating as well as cooling system. I made sure to find a temperature controlled unit with a current HVAC unit. I’ve lived in a nice condo for over 3 years now, as well as I still love the ability to always adjust the thermostat to a comfortable temperature.  

Each room has its own a/c amount

I was genuinely excited that the two of us recently had heating and air conditioning zone control installed in our house.  But this was mainly because my wife’s brother plus his partner decided to visit for a week. They are from the North and they appreciate colder rather than warmer temperatures.  Since my wife and I are used to residing in the southern weather conditions, the two of us usually want it to be a little warmer plus somewhat more humid. So my brother-in-law plus his partner took the guest room and I explained to them that they could keep the thermostat in their room set to whatever they wished, however i asked them to please not mess with the thermostat in the other area of the house. I explained that the house was divided into zones with separate heat and AC control! My brother thought that was fabulous and his partner agreed with him.  Once when I went to go talk to my wife’s brother in the guest room, it was genuinely cold as a blizzard in there! I told him I couldn’t even imagine why he blasted the air conditioner that much, and he responded saying that he couldn’t help it, it was way too hot and humid here in the South. I could absolutely understand this line of reasoning because I was initially from the North, and at the time used to be the same way. Over time though, I was able to adjust to the southern weather conditions so now I appreciate the warmth. I must say though, I’m thankful for that heat and AC zone control or this would definitely be a rather unpleasant and uncomfortable visit. Happily though, the four of us all had a superb time. We even went as a group to the beach for a little while, but my brother-in-law and his partner couldn’t wait to get back to the inside of our house to enjoy some more intense air conditioning again. These southern weather conditions were just too intense for them both.

I don’t want to dread things

I live in a town where the most convenient way to travel is by taxi. I don’t usually care much for taxi rides, since they’re usually dirty and smell downright awful. The drivers can sometimes be rude, and I don’t always feel safe with how aggressive their driving can be at times. However, sometimes I don’t have a choice! I have had some positive experiences in taxis though, like last week when I got in a taxi that looked really nice. I was even more pleasantly surprised when I opened the door and found leather interior, and that the cab was nice and clean! The driver was so friendly and told me that I could adjust the temperature of the cab from the rear seat. I was able to turn the heated seats on in the back of the car, all without any trouble – from the equipment or the driver! I was also able to turn the heating and cooling systems on or off whenever I wanted, which was refreshing for the air quality. Having a thermostat for the rear of the car made the ride so much more enjoyable! I rode with a smile on my face, as I couldn’t believe just how comfy that cab ride really was. I almost didn’t want to get out of the car when I arrived at work! I asked if I could take this driver’s direct contact information, and she gave me her number eagerly. Now, I try to use this driver whenever possible. She isn’t always available for me to summon her, but I am entirely thankful when she is! It is just crazy to me, how much of a difference heating and cooling systems can make for a cab ride. This experience has changed my opinion about taxis, without question!

What we need on our trip

For our birthdays this year, I have been making plans for my husband and I to go to the shore.  We usually plan a trip together every year because our birthdays are a few days apart, but this year he has been talking about taking a charter boat to go deep sea fishing.  I was able to book a four day trip for him, aboard this fishing boat, and he can fish the entire time he’s there. There are only several people taken out at a time, and that includes the captain himself.  He and our son will be on the boat alone, with just the captain. They serve three meals a day and they even have craft beer and fine wine available. I recognize it is more like staying in a floating hotel that offers fishing from the balcony rather than just your standard weekend fishing charter.  I did remember to ask if they had air conditioning, and they were quick to assure me that there was indeed air conditioning and heating available in all parts of the inner cabin, so I knew my husband would be comfortable for his trip. For me, I am going to be sitting in a hotel room, with all of the amenities, and enjoying my rare several days without my dear husband.  The whole family will be having a fantastic time this weekend and I can’t wait. Now, I only need to consider and worry about the impending hurricane that is coming in and whether or not it is going to manage to affect the fishing trip. I’m hoping that it won’t reach this far up the coast and affect our weekend weather, however that still will remain to be seen. If it ends up raining too hard, I believe I’ll just have to break down and share my hotel room with him and my son instead.  I don’t know if I’ll have as much fun if that happens, however I’ll still have my remote controlled air conditioner and full service from the hotel’s lobby downstairs and I don’t have to leave the room or move a single finger to clean, for several whole days, with or without my husband and son actually being in the room. Happy birthday to me at last!

New piece for the air conditioner

There simply comes a time in everyone’s life when they are stuck needing to make some decisions.  They can be tough decisions that can alter the course of their lives, or they can be legitimately simple decisions, like just coming to a decision on what color curtains to buy.  Unfortunately, many of the decisions in our homes become pressing deliberations. My hubby is a regular procrastinator, plus it doesn’t matter what the two of us are discussing, he has to do some serious mulling before he comes to any kind of decision.  I asked him the other day when he was planning on changing the range hood out. The range hood the two of us have no longer has a entirely working ventilation system above. You hear the noise when you press the button, but nothing ever happens. I finally bought a brand new, quieter operation, range hood.  It has a two section ventilation fan, plus it comes with the modern ventilation hoses that lead outside. I decided to spend four hundred dollars for the range hood. It has now been resting in our spare room for over a year. He needs to go the store and get some small mounting brackets, however he isn’t ever sure what kind he ‘wants’ to get or what kind he ‘needs.’.  In the meantime, the indoor humidity plus the odors of cooking, are all building up. My air conditioner is running the whole time every day, and even if it legitimately helps, it isn’t getting rid of all of the stinks like I need it to. When our old range hood’s ventilation fan was entirely working, all of the stinks went outside so I never really realized how awful they actually were.  He either installs the new range hood, or I’m shelling out more money to buy a whole-house air purifier to go with the HVAC unit. It’s his choice now, however I guarantee the bill for the air purifier will shake him.

That was a nice fundraiser

I live in a city where the most convenient way to travel is by taxi rides. I don’t usually enjoy taxi rides. Taxis are usually very dirty and smell horrible. The drivers can sometimes be very rude and I don’t always feel safe. Their driving can be aggressive at times. However, sometimes I don’t have a choice. I have had some positive experiences in taxis before though. Last week, I got in a taxi that looked really nice. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door and found leather interior. The cab was nice and clean. The driver was so friendly and told me that I could adjust the temperature of the cab from the rear seat. I was able to turn the heated seats on in the back of the car without any trouble. I was also able to turn the heating and cooling systems on or off whenever I wanted. Having that full control over the temperature of the rear of the car made the ride so much more enjoyable. I rode with a smile on my face. I couldn’t believe how comfortable that cab was. I almost didn’t want to get out of the car when I arrived at work. I asked if I could take this driver’s direct contact information. He gave me his number eagerly. Now, I try to use this driver whenever possible. He isn’t always available, but I am very thankful when he is. It is crazy how much of a difference heating and cooling can have in a cab ride. This experience has somewhat changed my opinion about taxi rides!

The rain and cooling

My daughter just started working her first job.  She recently turned sixteen and managed to get hired at a local coffee shop.  She seems to like her job, but she’s not happy with working such long hours. One of the biggest issues is that the heating and cooling system installed at the coffee shop is very old and outdated.  My daughter was hired at the very end of the summer. The weather was still quite hot and humid. Inside the coffee shop, with the ovens running, the temperature climbed up into the triple digits. The air conditioner simply couldn’t handle demand.  It would frequently shut down, and they’d need to wait a few hours to start it back up. They set up a bunch of fans to keep the customers fairly cool. However, behind the counter and in the kitchen, the heat was excruciating. My daughter was thrilled when the weather finally cooled off, and they no longer needed the air conditioner.  They were able to open some windows and get fresh air into the coffee shop. Within the last week, the weather has taken a turn for the worse. The outside temperature is down to forty degrees. Although they started up the heater at the coffee shop, the place is still chilly. Obviously, the heating system is in as bad of shape as the air conditioner.  If it can’t handle the demands of forty degree weather, there’s no way it will keep up when the temperature drops below freezing. We sometimes get days which are in the negatives. My daughter is hoping that the heating system malfunctions and needs to be replaced.

Awesome cooling idea

I have a suspicion that whoever invented air conditioning was probably a woman. Or maybe the guy had a woman nagging him to invent air conditioning.  I am a middle age woman and I am currently going through menopause. Without my air conditioning, I would be the completely miserable. If someone is anywhere near me when I am having one of my hot flashes, they can feel the heat radiating from my skin.  I am frequently drenched with sweat. Very few people understand the discomfort of a sudden heat flash. My family had figured out how unhappy I am. They know to keep their distance when I’m having a rough day. I don’t like feeling overheated. I’m sure most people believe that people it is totally controllable.  My husband is so very helpful. When we bought our house about twenty years ago, he immediately had the HVAC system completely upgraded. She was wide enough to have Zone Control included in the package. Whenever he notices my face begin to flush, he quietly hands me my book and suggests I get comfortable in the bedroom.  With the door closed in the bedroom, I can adjust the air conditioning to suit my needs without impacting the rest of the house. I can cool that room down until I feel comfortable. There’s no need for me to sweat and feel overheated, and no need for the rest of the family to shiver. The zoned air conditioning is a life saver.  It also saves us money in energy costs every month.

The aged HVAC component

Reluctantly, I have become a new member of my neighborhood Home Owners Association.  I have spent many years cursing our HOA for all the petty, stupid rules which are then always applied in the most random nature.  My partner became sick of continually hearing my complaining so she shut myself and others up by instead challenging myself and others to do something myself about it.  I did shut up as I was hip to her point. But, I never once thought I would honestly try to get elected to the board. Currently, the HOA is attempting to force a poor old elderly couple to update their Heating and Air Conditioning plan because to them it doesn’t “beautify the area”.  Well, of course it doesn’t beautify; the really dumb thing is it’s only meant to heat and cool. These folks are pensioners who live out there on their own on a genuinely fixed income. I attempted to get to the real root of the big complication at a recent HOA board meeting. It actually comes down to the fact that the Heating and Air Conditioning machine that is in question is old, faded with a bit of rust on it.  They wanted it properly removed and updated. I got nowhere with my fellow board members. So, eventually I took it up in an open meeting however was sure to go around and personally ask each member of the neighborhood to attend. I recommended instead of totally ostracizing our neighbors while also inflicting a financial hardship, maybe we get together as a community. The place went wild. I was finally able to get the HOA board to agree to let us paint these sweet folks Heating and Air Conditioning condenser unit to hide the rust.  The neighborhood was cheerful. The HOA board was not.

Air conditioning at our bus

There’s nothing for me quite like back to school time each year. There’s the constant chaos each day of trying to compile the full list of college supplies demanded by each and every professor. There are the mornings of planning out all the new schedules to incorporate all sorts of educational activities, the bus schedule, plus holidays off. And of course, after that, there are the multiple weeks of tears leading up to the sizable morning for them, as children come to terms with their loss of freedom. As if it isn’t all quite terrible enough that they are forfeiting themselves to persistent weekly torture (as they understand it) then the place has to make things even worse for us all when they totally fail to install proper AC on the bus. Here, these moody teenagers are already unhappy about the educational circumstances, plus then to make matters worse they blast tons of tepid air on them the whole way. I don’t assume if there’s some sort of mechanical problem with the onboard HVAC plan for these transport vehicles, or if the bus drivers simply refuse to bother to power up the air conditioning. Somehow, every morning our children return back to the apartment drenched in sweat plus crying about the endless heat plus staggering humidity they just endured. They say that the bus is totally stagnant each day, plus that the air is incredibly low quality. The air itself is smelly plus unhealthy for them to breath. I understand what you get when you pay for public school, but I can’t let them roast our children for the rest of the college year.

Hate that bacteria is in our air quality

I’m not definitely the sort of woman who I would say you would consider a “neat freak” plus I’m okay with that. I certainly have our own way of keeping things in order, which is to just sort of let them get out of order plus memorize their positions from there onward. Is this backwards thinking? Yes, I suppose, but does it work out for myself and others plus save lots of time in the long run? I like to guess so. I have to say, but, that our fairly messy lifestyle has been an issue at times. For instance, this last year when I somehow went a few weeks without deep-cleaning our apartment resulted in some truly long-lasting indoor problems. I had a clearly identifiably busy plus frustratedting stage this past year where I let our beach house go by the wayside. It was a few weeks in there when I noticed something unpleasant – mold. There were dark mold patches popping up and growing up our lavatory walls, in the basement, plus even around some of the window sills. Frankly, I just hadn’t noticed the strongly proliferating mold until that moment. Whenever I did a quick google search online, I soon found that the number one cause of mold was indoor air humidity running totally awry. Well, in hindsight that made sense, since of course, I also hadn’t been properly caring for our central air conditioning plan very well. The air treatment component was unquestionably failing and creating lower quality indoor air – why wouldn’t it? I took this time to just make a step in the right direction, plus I invested in a dehumidifier for myself. The air treatment plan cost a pretty penny, but it’s actually supposed to make a sizable difference in mold production with minimal effort. At least the HVAC component runs without myself and others ever having to put in any extra cleaning effort.

I loved the system

My Grandma was legitimately wise in saving her retirement fund to build her home, and she was even a genius in it’s design… See, our Grandma grew up in the apartment her in-laws had built when our Grandpa was a little boy. So, she had gone through and fought every poor thing a poorly built apartment can have… The first year the land was being cleared, our Grandma took her plans to separate contractors until she found the right fit, working with them, she was able to build the perfect apartment for her needs in every way, from plumbing to the heating and cooling systems. The Heating and A/C system has three different levels of heating. The whole apartment if fueled by an oil furnace, which is further backed up by a fireplace in the study room and a wood burning stove in the finished basement. The fireplace has an advanced design I’d never seen, where a vent along the top can be turned on to move the hot air further out. This enables it to heat more square footage than I ever thought possible! As for the cooling, our Grandma’s apartment in the woods is designed to never need a/c, and cathedral ceilings combined with ceiling fans, and precise location of the apartment according to the position of the sunshine throughout the day and the surrounding forest keep it cool throughout the summer. She even had the study rooms built in the cooler parts of the apartment in the summer, so you are never overheated, but my Grandma has the most meticulously planned apartment I’ve ever seen, and this month it is all the people’s preferred, but her hard work has entirely paid off!

whole home comfort 

Ductwork cleaning at its best

My own place is comfortable as well as filled with the type of indoor environment that everyone loves. Like many additional homeowners, I constantly correct things to make sure that the indoor air quality is comfortable. I have a nice sound system as well as a high-definition television. I also have some nice leather seating as well as guest furniture for relaxing. There is even a nice pool in our backyard that is great to use on warm weekends. Most recently, I’ve found that sneezing has become an issue out of purple. I seem to be allergic to an outdoor pollen that is new, as well as it has terribly been making me feel. I was regularly puzzled about the sneezing issues, so I really decided to go on an air hunt last Saturday. I checked over the air conditioning filter, but it seem to be just clean. I looked inside of the air ducting area, but didn’t see very many our genes as well as dust-collecting. It was at that time that I made the decision to contact the air conditioning as well as heating provider. The air conditioning appointment to meet with an indoor air quality specialist. The following day, my wife as well as myself decided to have an air quality control specialist visit with us. The first thing they did was make sure to remove all of the particles from inside of our air ducting system. The vacuum was super with immense strength, plus clean the area at the wall as well as six feet backwards.

Cooking requires air purification

I always consider that an amateur person with basic Chef skills can take on recipes. Mostly I find cooking is nice for myself, because it’s only one person. Occasionally, I will cook for multiple people. Lately, I have prepared multiple meals in just a couple of minutes. I had to have something made unexpectedly, when I guest arrived as well as informed my family as well as myself that there was allergies. It was an allergy to the aroma of food, which was a prepared dish. The outdoor weather was honestly cold, so I regularly hesitated to open up the kitchen windows. There was a comfortable temperature as well as I didn’t want the prepared food to get cold. I decided it would be best to run the heating as well as air conditioning component. I turned on the ventilation system, so the air could circulate more quickly through our nice air filters. I hope that this would work well, because an air freshener was not going to help. Most of our air filters are terribly effective, especially when removing the regularly small allergens or odors. Iran the ventilation system for 2 hours before our guests arrived, as well as I regularly believe that it helped with the smells. Our Guest couldn’t even tell that the dish had been prepared earlier that day, because there were no smells at all in the area. The ventilation system and good air filters removed all of the odors that would have made our guests feel uncomfortable. I was never so happy to purchase a quality air filter product.

Our climate control program

I’m pretty self-explanatory for people to please. As an awesome general rule, I’m entirely not the person who needs a lot of things just to be comfortable. I have a couple of things, but they aren’t really anything crazy. I really prefer that my A/C equipment is particularly set to an exact temperature. I don’t like it to be very cold inside of my place, so the Comfort I prefer is inside of my place. I don’t love cut flowers, because they provide me with some terrible allergies and symptoms. I happen to find an unusual problem with butter also. A lot of people believe that it’s okay to leave butter out all day, but I think that butter should be refrigerated unless a person is using it at the time. I don’t guess why, but it’s a weird thing that seems to bother me completely. On these weird items is the A/C thermostat preferences. My partner and I in tirely have arguments about the temperature for our heating, ventilation, and A/C equipment. She often complains because it’s difficult to sleep when the outdoor temperatures are warmer than indoors. She seems to fall asleep exactly easily, so I’m entirely on sure why she believes that she can’t sleep all night long. I tried my self to entirely compromise, and we placed the A/C thermostat to a higher temperature. Everyone decided to run the A/C equipment a little warmer, and that has helped both of us. I don’t have to hear the complaining much anymore, and it seems like my partner is happy to have the temperature a couple degrees warmer.

Always cranking up the heating settings

One horrible winter issues for myself and others, is using our heating equipment more than three Ace during the day. I guess it doesn’t entirely run constantly, but it’s easy to see where I am leaving. It takes a heap of money to heat up the entire place, and I would prefer to have the temperature lower on our thermostat, so my family and I could save currency. Unluckily, I happen to be very outnumbered. My wife and both of the children seem to be very cold. Even during summer, when the temperature outside is almost 90 degrees, my family is cold. I don’t assume they really know about what real Sub-Zero temperatures feel like. My wifey prefers our temperature is easily set to 75 degrees. I think that’s too warm. We compromise to keep the house chilled at 60. It might seem like a random number, but it’s moderate for both of us to keep from complaining. It also helps to skim fees from our utility bill. I entirely love the wintertide season, and I find the chilly weather to be comfortable. The summer months can be very warm, but both of us do not want to invest our money in an A/C unit. My wife is agitated when I am cranky and overheated, because I feel a lot like a cranky baby. When our children leave for college, perhaps both of us will be able to fix our issues with the heating, ventilation, and AC equipment. Maybe we can finally agree on our indoor air quality.

The cat sits on the air vents

For some reason, our dog has taken up sleeping right on top of the air vents to the HVAC.  I don’t know what her reasoning is, but I tend to think that it is just that it feels good to feel the air blowing through her fur.  It’s funny though, because she hasn’t always done this. Of course, we have only been living here for a little over a year, and she spent the first six months just hiding away beneath the sofa and not paying attention to us.  Maybe she has just decided that it was okay in the house and she found out that she really likes laying where it is the most comfortable for her, and that is nearest the heating and the cooling. I knew it was on last year too, but she didn’t do that then.  I don’t know what she was thinking, but I’m not an animal either. Now she just seems to be totally obsessed with the HVAC. Maybe, once she gets used to the HVAC she will no longer want to sit on top of the air vents. When I come home from work, she is on the air vents.  The sun is shining in the window and hitting her directly. I guess maybe she is just in her ultimate glory right there in that spot. Whatever her reason, my reason to get her to move, is because I am really worried about the amount of animal fur that will be clogging my air vents and possibly even my ductwork, if this obsession lasts much longer.

AC is that important to me

If you were to ever try to take away my air conditioning, you may just be trying to take away your very own life.  I can’t handle temperatures when they get into the nineties, the humidity is in the eighty percents and I don’t have air conditioning.  Personally, I think this is just plain ludicrous. Whenever I hear someone tell me that they don’t have air conditioning, I want to ask them just how crazy they really are.  How do people deal without air conditioning? I don’t even have to work where I don’t have air conditioning. I would think that it would be a recipe for disaster to go without air conditioning.  You would be at risk for dehydration, just going about your every day chores. I wouldn’t even want to be in my car if it didn’t have air conditioning. I guess you could find some comfort if the windows were open, but it would be much more pleasant to have the air conditioning.  I think people look funny when they have the reddened faces because they are too stupid to turn on the air conditioning and they have it. When I was a kid I didn’t like to go without the air conditioning, so I don’t know why I would do it now. I guess if it were winter all of the time, I would be all right without the air conditioning.  Maybe I should move somewhere that I had more winter and a lot less summer. Then I may be happier.

using the a/c to help my fish

I have a small interest in fish.  I mean, it used to be a small interest in fish.  Somehow, it seems that whatever I decide to do for a hobby, always gets totally out of hand.  I know a family member that doesn’t know the meaning of hobby. Everything she does becomes an obsession and she can’t stop with just one.  It’s like the starving man syndrome. He sees a buffet of food and he hadn’t eaten in a week. He is suddenly gorging himself on everything and it makes him sick.  I’m finding that I am the same way. I started with a small fish tank that was given to me as a gift. It was so cute to watch that little fish as he swam around the tank.  I began to feel bad because the fish looked lonely, so I got a bigger tank and I gave him a buddy. It was so nice to hear the bubbling of the water and to watch those tanks.  When one of them died, I ended up going to the fish store. Those tanks were so beautiful and I walked out with a 75 gallon tank and all of the accessories. I soon bought a 180 gallon tank.  My house isn’t really big and I now had about as many large fish tanks as I could fit in my house and still have room for my furniture. I also had a huge problem with the heat and humidity in my house.  My air conditioner couldn’t handle the heat or the humidity because it was built for this kind of load. I knew I had to either get a new AC unit with a dehumidifier and air purification system, or I had to get rid of some of the tanks.

It is time to go towards air purification

My doctor must be totally out of his mind.  Last week, I went to his office because I have been suffering with the worst cold symptoms I have ever had, for over two weeks.  They seem to be getting steadily worse, and I don’t know what to do. My throat is really sore, but I’m thinking that may be from the post nasal drip.  I have so much pressure in my sinus area that I am beginning to get the worst kind of migraine that you can imagine. My nose is running constantly and I just couldn’t handle it.  It seems there wasn’t a medicine out there that could help me to get rid of these horrible allergies, cold, or whatever it is. My doctor did a thorough examination and he even did a throat culture, but nothing came out of it.  He says there is not reason for me to be so sick, except for allergies. He told me that I may want to consider calling the HVAC company and having them do a thorough check of my HVAC system. He asked about my air filtering system and if I had a HEPA filter.  He wanted to know if I had a good air purification system in my HVAC system. He even asked me how old my HVAC system was. I’m thinking that since his family has their HVAC company that he may just be trying to drum up some business for the family business. I hope that isn’t the true reason for his asking everything about my HVAC.  I’ve got to admit that my HVAC system is quite old and I’m not sure when it was last cleaned. I could get that done, I guess.

HVAC surrounded by weeds

Living with a bunch of roommates means duties get put off. It’s on all of us, because it can happen due to everyone working extensive hours or even just poor weather. This time, it was a combination of the two. Our mower was not even working, which no one had the money to fix or knew how. Then, things got super busy at work and half of our roommates were overworked. Coupled with back to school and our retail jobs, no one had time to give to yard work. This would have been manageable for a week or two in the summer, except that the weather was working overtime against us. For the longest time, our area experienced severe storms to a point we had never known it could get. There were tornado warnings all over the place, something that seldom happens this far north. The daily rain caused the weeds and the lawn to turn into the jungle. Then violent storms threw around everything from tree limbs to the our trampoline. By the time I got out there, we had giant weeds taking over the HVAC system. I had to help one of my roommates to shut down the central AC for a few hours while we got the weeds off the condenser. From there, we had to weed whack, and mow down the lawn, just to give that condenser the breathing room it needed. Many hours later, the condenser for the central air conditioning was nice and cleared and ready to get back to work. I’ll never let the yard get that awful again.

Our bathroom floor heater

My latest condo has got me spoiled. I have strong central air conditioning, efficient heating via a gas furnace, and a bathroom I could stay in all day. The complex is an older building, but it was largely renovated a few years back. The new owner wanted to make several improvements, but he has to make certain sacrifices for the budget. As it turned out, the flooring he wanted in the living rooms wouldn’t be suitable for a radiant heater, and he wasn’t about to pay more for floors he didn’t want. Instead, he decided to invest in a simple electric-powered heated floor in the place he knew people would want it most–the bathroom! It’s so nice to be able to step out of the shower everyday in the winter and have warm feet instead of cold feet. The heated floors also keep the bathroom so warm and cozy I almost fall asleep in there sometimes! When the living room is a bit cold, I just prop open the bathroom door with the heated floors on for about fifteen minutes. This does the trick well, without turning up the HVAC at all. When my guests come over, they’re always pleasantly surprised by how toasty the bathroom floor is. In the end, I prefer having the typical heating and cooling system for the rest of my home. Having this form of HVAC means I also get a cleaner home thanks to the air filters. A house full of heated floors would have been awesome, but I prefer the air purification system to help me address the dust and cat hair. With full HVAC and a heated floor in one room, the bathroom is the best room in the home, hands down.

HVAC service repair that evening

For our son’s birthday this year, he wanted to have friends over to our place and have pizza, cake and ice cream! Well, sadly, the Heating and A/C unit quit right in the middle of the afternoon! I was freaking out because I wanted everything to go well for the party and so I called up the Heating and A/C company and they said they couldn’t come until the following afternoon. So then I hung up and called another Heating and A/C company, and this company said they could send a Heating and A/C professional out to the house in a few minutes. I just hoped the Heating and A/C professional would arrive before our son’s party started at 4pm. I didn’t know if anyone would show up early for the party and it was actually miserable inside the apartment without any working A/C. And so then I decided to turn on a bunch of fans to get the air moving and we even opened up the windows. When the Heating and A/C professional arrived around 2:30pm, I was actually relieved. I showed where the Heating and A/C device was and he started to work. I found out that we needed to have a few parts updated, which was fine with me, I just wanted the air conditioning to work! When everything was all fixed, I was so relieved and so was our son, who was freaking out a little bit about the A/C. Apparently, a girl he really likes was coming over to his party too. I decorated a little around the pool in the back so everyone would have a nice pool party! Of course there would be parental supervision as well, because I don’t want anyone getting too carried away!

I need a fan

Last Sunday I was engaged in my favourite activity, shopping! A truly kind person has sent me a gift certificate for $100 plus I was on top of the world. Proving, by the way, that it pays, literally, to have generous friends. Suddenly, I realized that I needed quite a few personal things, so I decided to check out the clothing stores in an arcade near me. After all, a single can never have too many clothes, right?

      It was a truly tepid day, so when I walked into that first store, I felt instant relief. Bless this Heating plus Air Conditioning unit, I immediately thought. The air conditioned air was so cool. But as I walked around the store, admiring the displays, I began to think really cold. I wished I, at least, had a jacket. As time passed, I became less interested in the stuff on display, plus more upset about the goose pimples oh my skin. I was approaching an employee to ask that the control unit be readjusted, when my teeth began to chatter. I was so embarrassed that I immediately ran out through the door. The heat outside felt nice for the moment, as I stood wondering how the staff plus customers could stand the chilly air that Heating plus Air Conditioning unit was belching out

      Warily, I entered the hour store. This indoor air felt really good, so they, obviously had an Heating plus Air Conditioning unit here too.But remembering my truly recent experience, I reMEd close to the door, till I was convinced that a comfortable setting was being maintained on this control unit. I ended up staying, enjoying perfect air conditioning plus buying some super charming things.

Our back room is a bit of an issue

I went out shopping this past weekend, which was a welcome change from the endless workweek! A particularly kind coworker gave myself and others a gift certificate for $100 that could be used at the mall. I was on top of the world! This proves, by the way, that it pays to have generous friends. I realized that I needed quite a few personal things, so I decided to check out the clothing stores in the town mall. If you ask me, there’s no such thing as having too multiple clothes, right?

      It was a blazing hot day in June, so when I walked into that first store, I felt instant relief from the heat. This Heating and A/C system is awesome! The air was so cool and fresh, and quickly cooled me off. As I walked around the store to check tags, I began to feel particularly cold. Maybe a little too cold, actually. If I had a coat, I would’ve been okay. As time passed, I became less interested in the stuff on display, and more agitated by the cold! I approached an employee to ask if the thermostat could be adjusted, and my teeth began to chatter! I was so embarrassed that I instantly ran out through the door! The heat outside felt wonderful for a small moment or two, as I stood wondering how the staff and customers could stand the cold air that Heating and A/C unit was pouring out in arctic blasts!

      Warily, I entered the next department store hoping for the best but expecting the worst. This indoor air felt particularly good, so they obviously had an efficient Heating and A/C unit here that wasn’t set to “freeze”. Remembering this recent experience, I decided to close the door and wait until I was convinced that a comfortable setting was set on this store’s thermostat. I ended up staying, enjoying the excellent air conditioning and buying some new additions for my closet.

A fantastic AC system

So last Thursday, I was engaged in my favourite pastime – shopping ‘til I drop! A kind friend sent me a $100 gift card, and instructions to relax and buy myself something nice with it. I was on top of the world! I realized that I needed quite a few personal things, so I decided to check out the clothing stores in the department stores near me. After all, you can never have too many clothes! So I set out to buy myself some new threads.

      It was a tremendously hot day that day, so when I walked into the first store I felt instant relief. This A/C was incredible and quickly cooled me down! The air conditioner was blowing so cool that I almost felt too cold! As I walked around the store admiring the outfit on each mannequin, I began to actually feel too cold. I wished I at least brought a jacket, or even a simple blanket to drape over me. As time passed, I became less interested in the stuff on display, and more interested in removing the goose bumps all over me! I was approaching an employee to ask if the thermostat could be adjusted to be warmer, and my teeth seriously began to chatter. I was so embarrassed! I immediately ran out through the front door and didn’t turn back. The heat outside felt fantastic for a moment or two, as I stood wondering how the staff and customers could sit in the cold air of that place without freezing over.

     . With caution, I entered the next store expecting a cold snap. This indoor air felt much better, so they had their heating and air conditioning system running to be comfortably cool – not “icebox cold”. Remembering my recent experience, I lingered by the door until I was convinced the comfortable temperature was being maintained on the store’s temperature control unit. Choosing to stay, I enjoyed the perfect air conditioning and even bought some nice additions to my wardrobe.

Everyone is contacting me

Last week, I was engaged in my favourite activity – shopping! A wonderfully kind woman sent me a gift card for $100, so I felt I was on top of the world. It certainly pays to have generous friends! Suddenly, I realized that I needed quite a few personal things, so I decided to check out the clothing stores in the strip mall near my home. After all, one can never have too many clothes, right?

      It was a terribly hot and humid day, so when I walked into that first store, I felt instant relief. Bless this Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit, I immediately thought. The air was so cool and refreshing! Still, as I walked around the store admiring the displays and checking prices, I began to feel too cold. Suddenly, I wished I at least had a sweater. As time passed, I became less interested in the stuff on display, and more irritated by the goose bumps all over my skin! I was approaching an employee to ask that the thermostat be adjusted to a warmer setting, and that’s when our teeth began to chatter. I was so embarrassed that I right away ran out through the door. The heat outside felt nice for the moment, as I stood wondering how the staff and customers could stand the cold air that Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit was belching out! Warily, I entered the next store and found the indoor air quality to feel far better. They evidently had a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system in place, but it was set to a more reasonable temperature to accommodate all shoppers. It was nice, being in a store where the temperature wasn’t making my teeth chatter!

A replacement that worked great well

Last Wednesday I was engaged in my favourite activity, shopping! A very kind person has sent me a gift certificate for $100 and I was on top of the world. Proving, by the way, that it pays, literally, to have generous friends. Suddenly, I realized that I needed quite a few personal things, so I decided to check out the clothing stores in an arcade near me. After all, one can never have too many clothes, right?

      It was a very hot day, so when I walked into that first store, I felt instant relief. Bless this HVAC unit, I immediately thought. The air conditioned air was so cool. But as I walked around the store, admiring the displays, I began to feel really cold. I wished I, at least, had a sweater. As time passed, I became less interested in the stuff on display, and more concerned about the goose pimples oh my skin. I was approaching an employee to ask that the thermostat be readjusted, when my teeth began to chatter. I was so embarrassed that I immediately ran out through the door. The heat outside felt good for the moment, as I stood wondering how the staff and customers could stand the freezing air that HVAC unit was belching out

      Warily, I entered the second store. This indoor air felt really good, so they, obviously had an HVAC unit here too.But remembering my very recent experience, I remained close to the door, till I was convinced that a comfortable setting was being maintained on this thermostat. I ended up staying, enjoying perfect air conditioning and buying some super beautiful things.
