HVAC Tips 4 You

AC stopped working

Last summer I was forced to find a second job because money had gotten tight. Bills had been piling up and I needed to make some quick cash I absolutely didn’t want to lose my home.Luckily, I had a good friend who worked at the local supermarket. He was capable to get me a job employed in the seafood department part time on the weekends. It was pretty fun and it helped settle the debts. What I really loved about it was that we were in air conditioning all day long. The majority of the fish had to be kept frozen, so the HVAC system was of supreme importance. One weekend it was so hot that the air conditioning overloaded and stopped working. I think someone had pushed the thermostat too low and somehow short circuited the whole cooling system. Needless to express, the entire store felt like a furnace. It was tough for us in the seafood department because we had to keep air quality at a very cold level to retain the fish fresh. The manager luckily secured an HVAC technician who located the store promptly to maintenance the air conditioning. It took the HVAC technician almost three long hours, but he subsequently had the cooling system working like new. He also wanted to install a new thermostat. Soon the air quality became cooler as cold air began pumping out of the air conditioning and the ductwork. Luckily, we only lost some of our seafood due to the broken air conditioning!

Central air conditioning purchase

I lived absolutely far south from the time I was about eight or so years old until I was about twenty-two. When I lived there, it was still a fantastic locale in which to be a kid. The people I was with and I could play in canals as long as the people I was with and I were careful about gators and the damage they could do. The people I was with and I could climb palm trees and get our own coconuts. My uncle would take all of us to the orange groves to get some baskets of oranges and to the squash fields to get fresh squash. It was really great. I can also remember when I was about ten years old or thereabouts, something amazing happened. The people I was with and I got a central air conditioning installed right inside the house. This happened to be really incredible because before that the people I was with and I only had a single window cooling system and a handful of ceiling fans. The window cooling system was in the bedroom, or television room as the people I was with and I called it! Occasionally I would go sleep on the floor in the television room so that I could go ahead and use the cooling system to stay cool at night. To tell the truth, not having central air conditioning was really not of much concern to me. In fact, I don’t know I even knew what central air conditioning was at that point. But I am sure my mom really wanted the comfort of central air conditioning, but plus, I’m very sure having central air conditioning increased the value of the house. Anyway, I remember back to when the air conditioning repair serviceman arrived to install the central a/c. I watched him unload and install the a/c units, the ductwork, even the air vents in the floors, and the thermostat. I was forbidden to touch the thermostat! He went ahead and showed us how to change air filters and provided us a six-month supply to have, then getting that HVAC system is a really neat memory from my childhood!

Thinking back to my first air conditioner

I lived really far down south from the time I was about more than seven years old until I was about twenty-two years of age. When I still lived there, it was still a good location to be a kid. Every one of us could play in the old canals as long as we were mindful of alligators. Every one of us could climb palm trees as well as get our own coconuts. My uncle would often take myself and others to the orange groves to option oranges as well as to the squash fields to get fresh squash to snack on. It was really great. I can also remember when I was about eight or nine years old something amazing happened. Every one of us got a central air conditioner method installed in the house. This was really incredible because before that the group of us only had one window air conditioning as well as ceiling fans. The window air conditioning was situated in the dining room, and occasionally I would go sleep on the floor in that room so I could use the air conditioning to stay cool at night. To tell the truth, not having central air conditioner was at that time not of much problem to me. In fact, I don’t suppose I even knew what central air conditioner was. I am sure our mom really wanted the comfort of central air conditioner, then plus, I’m sure that having a central air conditioner increased the value of the house. Anyway, I remember when the specific air conditioner repair serviceman arrived one day to install the central air conditioning. I remember that I watched him unload as well as install the air conditioning units, the ductwork, the air vents in the floors, as well as the temperature control. I was forbidden to touch the temperature control! He showed us how to go ahead and change air filters as well as offered us a six-month supply to have on hand. Getting that Heating as well as Air Conditioning method is a huge memory from my early childhood!

Thinking back to when I got air conditioning

I lived undoubtedly far south from the time I was about more than seven years old until I was nearly twenty-two years old. When I lived there, it was still a great location to be a kid. All of us could play in canals as long as my friends and I were careful about gators. All of us could climb palm trees & get our own coconuts to eat and to play with. My aunt would take myself and others to the orange groves so we had the opportunity to pick some oranges & to the squash fields to get fresh squash. It was really great. I can also remember when I was about eight or nine years old something amazing happened. All of us got a central air conditioner method installed in our house. This was legitimately incredible because before that the two of us only had a single window air conditioner system & ceiling fans. The window air conditioner system was located in the home office, or television room as the two of us called it, however occasionally I would go in there to sleep on the floor in the television room so I could use the air conditioner system to stay cool during the  night. To tell the truth, not having central air conditioner was not of much concern to me. In fact, I don’t suppose I even knew what central air conditioner was at the time, but I am sure my mom legitimately wanted the comfort of central air conditioner, then plus, I’m also sure that having central air conditioner increased the value of the house. Anyway, I remember when the air conditioner service contractor arrived a single day to install the central air conditioning system. I watched him unload & install the various components of the air conditioning system units, the ductwork, the air vents in the floors, & the temperature control. I was forbidden to touch the temperature control! He showed us how to change air filters & actually offered us a six-month supply to have on hand, then getting that Heating as well as Air Conditioning method is a sizable memory from my childhood!

Remembering when I got my AC

I lived far south from the time I was about more than seven years old until I was about twenty-two. When I lived there, it was still a good location in which one could be a kid. We could play in canals as long as the two of us were careful about watching for alligators. We could climb palm trees & get our own coconuts. My uncle would often take myself and others to the groves to find oranges & to the tomato fields to get fresh tomatoes. It was great. I can also remember when I was young, something amazing happened. We inevitably got a central air conditioning plan installed in the house. This was absolutely incredible because before that the two of us only had a single window a/c & ceiling fans. The window a/c was in the kitchen, or cable room as the two of us called it. Sometimes I would go sleep on the floor in the cable room so I could try to use the a/c to stay cool at evening. To tell the truth, not having central air conditioning was not really of much concern to me. In fact, I don’t guess I even knew what central air conditioning was at the time, but I am sure our Dad absolutely wanted the comfort of central air conditioning. Plus, I’m actually sure having central air conditioning increased the value of the house. Anyway, I remember long ago when the air conditioning service company arrived 1 day to install the central a/c. I watched him go ahead and unload & install the a/c units, the air duct, the air vents in the floors, & the thermostat. I was sadly forbidden to touch the thermostat! She showed us how to change air filters & gave us a full six month supply to have on hand, however getting that Heating & Air Conditioning plan is a big memory from our childhood!

There is zero mess from the installation

I lived the first twenty-five years of my life in the northern part of the country.  I never had air conditioning in my childhood home, in my college dorm, or any of the apartments I rented.  Our summer season was short, with mild weather, and air conditioning simply wasn’t necessary.  Because the winters were so long, with such extreme weather conditions, our heating system was always the priority.  When I took a job down south, I couldn’t wait to pack up and move away from the snow and cold.  I had very little time to manage my move, and so I ended up finding and renting an apartment through an online service.  My only concern was finding a place with cheap rent that was fairly close to the beach.  I didn’t care if I needed to pay utilities or if the appliances were outdated.  I arrived at my new apartment at the end of March, and the outdoor temperature was in the mid-nineties with excessive humidity.  I was unprepared for the heat, and carrying my belongings up the stairs and unpacking them was a hot and sticky job.  For the first time in my life, I was desperate for air conditioning.  I inspected my entire apartment but could not find an air conditioner or even a thermostat.  I finally called up my landlord and asked about it.  He informed me that the apartment did not come equipped with any type of HVAC system.  He assured me that I would not need a heating system, and suggested that I invest in some electric fans.  Since it was already excruciatingly hot in March, I knew I would be in trouble during the summer.

Some new information about my heater

Living in the northeastern section of the USA, we often need to run our heating system for five to six months a year. We are faced with bitter cold, tons of snowfall, and terrible windchills. Trying to retain a warm and comfortable home is constantly a challenge. I spent a small fortune to install a modern warm air furnace, and I remember to change the air filter monthly. I schedule professional maintenance for our heating unit every fall. My energy bills are a major portion of my budget. I’ve taken a lot of energy saving measures throughout the house, trying to prevent energy waste and not spend as much. I’ve replaced all of the old windows with Energy Star rated alternatives, and carefully caulked all of them. I’ve installed ceiling fans to push the warm air down toward the floor, and added insulation in the walls and ceilings. Despite every one of those efforts, I didn’t notice much difference in my monthly heating expenses. When I complained to my HVAC specialist, he suggested installing a whole home humidifier. With the furnace running continually, the air inside my house becomes extremely dry. Moisture free air feels far cooler, needs higher thermostat settings, and puts more wear and tear on my furnace. I chose a steam-style humidifier, because it is a natural method of adding moisture and can handle a larger home. Plus, a steam-style humidifier can operate independently from the furnace. The humidifier has made the house feel far more comfortable, along with significantly having lowered my heating costs. It operates quietly, is surprisingly low maintenance, and improved the health in our family.

The weather turned out hot and humid

This past spring, my boyfriend and I celebrated our three-year anniversary. I was really excited, because we planned a very romantic evening together. We went out to dinner in a really fancy restaurant, and I was hoping that he would propose to me. I expected a diamond engagement ring, and instead I received a portable air conditioner. I was extremely disappointed by this gift, but I pretended to be delighted. He installed the new air conditioner into our bedroom window, but I doubted we’d ever use it much. I like to have the windows open and let in fresh outside air. Once the weather turned hot and humid, my  boyfriend insisted that we should give the new air conditioner a trial. I was really surprised how that little cooling unit improved our comfort in the bedroom. It operates from a cordless remote that we keep within easy reach of our bed. At any time, we can raise or lower the temperature to what we want, change the fan speed, or turn the ac unit on or off, without getting out of bed. We can also program the air conditioner to start up before he we get in bed, so that the room is nice and cool for us. I definitely sleep much better in the cooler room and with the gentle sound from the air conditioner. Because the windows tend to be closed, I don’t get disturbed by birds tweeting, dogs barking, or cars honking. I really hate to admit that this air conditioner was a better gift than a diamond engagement ring, but I wouldn’t trade it. Now that it’s mid-September and the outside weather is cooling down, I am reluctant to remove the air conditioner from the window.

I realized I needed to check inside the air conditioner

Mowing the lawn is such a joy, especially in the summertime when I’m able to drive around and see my beautiful trees and bushes. Our property is pretty big so it does take good amount of time to mow the entire lawn. About last summer, yy husband traded the mower we’ve had for years in exchange for a newer model that has a zero-turning-radius. This new model reaches auto speeds and can also make impressive tight turns into circles with ease. It has reduced the amount of time it usually takes for us to mow, and it sure does great work. When it was first  brought it home by my husband, I was urged against driving the idea until he could familiarize me while using the machine. Unfortunately, our grass ended up growing out of control because he had to leave for a weekend out of town for work. I was pretty antsy about using it so I thought I’d go on ahead and try it out. I read through the manual of directions first and to my surprise, it wasn’t difficult to navigate at all. I had great fun riding all around the lawn, but ended up smashing in the outdoor air compressor from cutting the corner a bit too tight. The compressor was apart of the cooling system we have outside and was struck pretty hard. When I checked on the inside, I realized that the air conditioner had broken and there was a huge punctured hole in it. My HVAC contractor was quickly contact and told to send a technician right over to repair our unit before my husband returns home and sees it.
