Superior HVAC

In this day in age we have desktops and ipads. Technology allows me to do everything. It also allows us to video chat with our loved ones who are far away. Technology makes work and lifestyle easier. It makes life more comfortable. One my favorite pieces of technology in this home is our HVAC system. We have an energy efficient system called an HVAC system that has great SEER ratings. It keeps our home cool and comfortable through almost all year. Then, for a small component to the year the heater keeps my home warm. Our heating and cooling system has a smart thermostat rendering it easy to control the temperature in our home no matter where we are if we’re home or not. The smart thermostat also comes with added features like alerting you when our heater or air conditioner has to be fixed or the air filters must be changed. My favorite thing about our HVAC system is that it is very quiet. When I am sitting in our house I hardly notice when the heater or air conditioner can occur. This HVAC system is pretty much silent. After coming from your dream house with a noisy heating and cooling system, the quiet heater and AC could be very nice. I do not like adjusting the volume on the tv when the heater or air conditioner occurs. It seems to be very rare not to update and maintenance an HVAC system.

Getting a better furnace

The coming year our family is planning on doing some really big renovations to our current home. We realized that the family was attached to our current home, spending the last 20 years here being a happy family. The people I was with and I had grown to love our big city plus the many neighbors we had, the kids like their many friends and school plus we had a quick commute to work each day. The people I was with and I decided that if the family and I were going to do this, it was going to have to be a group effort of all of us and even a very long term project. The family and I also decided that the family and I would start saving as soon as possible, scraping every penny and even dime that the family and I found to pay for such renovations. Each family member had some request in the project, so the family and I all agreed to chip in altogether. The family and I had hope to have a nice bit saved up so we wouldn’t have to take out a large improvement loan from the bank however, while we were watching a film 1 night the heating decided to stop working. My husband and I tried our hardest to get the heat back on too by turning it on plus off plus up or down however nothing changed when we did this. The last thing the family and I wanted to do was to pay for a Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C serviceman seeing as how the family and I are trying to save tons of money. The family and I finally broke down plus called a professional soon. Lucky for us the cost was quite inexpensive plus wouldn’t set us back too much either. The serviceman recommended that the family and I get our unit worked on twice every year plus plan accordingly for the repair so as not to be surprised by the expense we would have to pay. The family and I were easily grateful this happened now and not in the near future.

Within the next year my family and I are planning to do some big renovations to our house. Every one of us here realized that we were far too attached to our current house, spending the last 15 years or so here being a whole family. Every one of us had grown to really love our neighborhood and several neighbors, the kids really love their good friends and school and my spouse and I had a quick commute to work which was nice. Every one of us decided that if we were going to actually do this, it was going to have to be a big group effort and a very long term project. Every one of us also decided that we would start saving right now, scraping absolutely every penny and dime that we found to pay for these renovations we wanted. Each family member had some request in the project so every one of us all agreed to put in some money. Every one of us had hope to have a nice bit of money saved up so every one of us wouldn’t have to take out a sizable home improvement loan. Unfortunately, while every one of us were seeing a movie 1 night the heating decided to stop. My spouse and I tried our hardest to get the heat running, turning it on and off however nothing changed then. The last thing every one of us wanted to do was to pay for a Heating, Ventilation and A/C specialist seeing as how we are even trying to save money. Every one of us finally broke down completely and called a nice professional. Lucky for us the cost was not high in price and wouldn’t set us back too much in saving. The specialist commanded that we get our equipment tested twice every year and system accordingly for the repair so as not to be surprised by the total expense. Every one of us were undoubtedly grateful now and not further along in the process.

Getting a better heater

Next year my family and I are really planning on doing some major renovations to our house. We all realized that we were way too attached to our house, spending the last 13 years being a family there. We had grown to enjoy our large town and our neighbors, the youngsters care about their school friends and their school and we had a quick commute to work everyday. We decided that if both of us were going to do this though, it was going to have to be a total group effort and a very long term project. We had also decided that both of us would begin saving immediately, scraping every penny and dime that both of us found to spend all of the money for these new renovations. Each family member had some request for the project so we all agreed to chip in some funds. Every one of us had hoped to have a bit saved up so we wouldn’t have to take out a huge loan but unfortunately, while both of us were enjoying a video one cold night the heating decided to go out on us. We tried our best to get the heat back on, turning it on and off again but nothing changed for us. The last thing both of us wanted to do was to spend our money for a Heating & Air Conditioning specialist seeing as how both of us are trying to save that specific money. Every one of us finally broke down and called an HVAC professional. Lucky for us however, the cost was cheap and wouldn’t set us back too much for saving. The specialist recommended that both of us get our unit taken care of twice every year and propose accordingly for the maintenance so as not to be surprised by the expense. Every one of us were truly grateful this happened now and not further along with the renovations.

Updating my heater

Next year my family and I are planning on doing major renovations to our current house. The two of us realized that we were too attached to our house, spending the last 15 years there being a big family. The two of us had grown to absolutely love our city and many neighbors, the teenagers enjoy their many friends and the school and my wife and I had quite a quick commute to work. The two of us decided that if we were going to really do this, it was going to have to be a group effort for sure and a long term project as well. We also decided that we would start saving right now, scraping almost every penny and dime that we found to pay for these expensive renovations, but each family member had some request in the project so we all agreed to chip in as much as we could. We had hope to have a bunch saved up so we wouldn’t have to take out a large home improvement loan but unfortunately, while we were watching a movie one night the heating decided to go out totally. My wife and I tried our absolute hardest to get the heat back on and running, turning it on and off but nothing changed. The last thing we wanted to do was to pay for a Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C professional seeing as how we are trying to save as much money as we can. We finally broke down and called a good professional. Lucky for us the cost was inexpensive and wouldn’t set us back too much at all. The professional advocated that we get our device checked on twice every year accordingly for the repair so as not to be surprised by the expense in which we would have to pay. The two of us were absolutely grateful this happened.

Renovating house and updating heating

My husband and I tried our hardest to get the heat back, turning it on and off and up but nothing changed. The last thing we wanted to do was to pay for a HVAC technician seeing as how we are trying to save money. We finally broke down and called a professional. Lucky for us the cost was inexpensive and wouldn’t set us back too much. The technician recommended that we get our unit serviced twice every year and plan accordingly for the service so as not to be surprised by the expense. We were actually grateful this happened now and not further along.

Wanting to be sure of furnace reliability over the holidays

My family alternates who hosts Christmas, and this year, it is my turn.  Although it is a great deal of work and expense, I look forward to having the whole family at my house.  I want the evening to be enjoyable for everyone.  In the area where I live, our winter weather is extremely cold.  On Christmas, we can expect to have several feet of snow and temperatures around thirty degrees.  It is difficult to maintain a comfortable home when the weather is so severe.  I know that my furnace will carry a heavy workload, and be forced to run non stop for days at a time.  With my family coming to the house, I will set the thermostat a bit higher.  I certainly don’t want anyone to be shivering all evening long.  Between baking in the oven all day and cranking up the thermostat, the house should be warm and cozy.  My biggest fear is that my furnace will malfunction over the Christmas holidays.  Not only would this be a major disruption to my plans, but very few HVAC contractors offer emergency service at this time of year.  Calling for repairs on Christmas would result in overtime charges.  I make sure to have the furnace professionally serviced in November.  An HVAC technician comes to the house and inspects all of the components, looking for any potential problems.  He replaces any worn or broken parts, and makes necessary adjustments.  He also thoroughly cleans the inner workings, ensuring maximum airflow for peak heating capacity and energy efficiency.  I can be sure that my furnace is operating at its best.

Going without air conditioning during hottest days of summer

Last summer, when I first started up my air conditioner, I knew I was in trouble.  It was much louder than usual, and made a screeching noise that was a bit scary.  It also smelled sort of weird.  I quickly noticed that the air conditioner was running for longer cycles than normal, and having trouble maintaining ideal temperature.  There were hot and cold spots throughout the house, and my energy bills were definitely higher.  I should have called for repairs immediately.  Unfortunately, I was super busy and didn’t want to spend the money on air conditioner repair.  As long as the cooling system kept working, I ignored it.  In the middle of August, we got hit with a sudden heatwave.  The outside temperature climbed up into the nineties, and humidity was unbearable.  The air conditioner ran nonstop for two solid days, and then suddenly quit.  I have no idea how to fix an air conditioner.  I checked the batteries in the thermostat, replaced the air filter, and turned the unit on and off about a dozen times.  None of my efforts did any good.  I had no choice but to contact my local HVAC company.  Because of the heat wave, they were extremely busy with service calls, and I could not schedule an appointment until the following week.  I went without air conditioning during the hottest week of the summer.  When the HVAC technician inspected my air conditioner, he said it was clogged with dust and mold.  It simply needed to be professionally cleaned.  I decided then to enroll in a maintenance plan which would cover seasonal cleaning and troubleshooting.

Getting Central Air Conditioning for the First Time

I am a very happy person most of the time. I do not have a lot of material possessions, but I try not to worry about that. I prefer to get my joy from other things most of the time. For example, I like to do what I can to help others. The pastor at church is always preaching about our responsibility to help our fellow man, so I give to a few charities and volunteer at the free clinic. I conserve my money so I live a humble and modest life. I have always lived in an apartment, but now I am getting married and my fiance wants us to buy a house so we can start a family. I never thought that would happen, but it is. There are lots of things to consider when purchasing your first home, but there is one exciting surprise I never thought about before. Central air conditioning! I have never had central air conditioning or central heating. I have always lived in apartments that have window air conditioners and furnaces that send heat up through the radiators. I am amazed at how excited I am about setting my own thermostat and having HVAC zone control technology, which a lot of the houses we are looking at do have. I never even heard of HVAC zone control in my life, and now it seems like something I don’t ever want to live without! My fiance is laughing at me half the time because of  my overwhelming and sudden interest in HVAC systems, especially central heating and cooling.

Halloween Haunted House

My wife and I are obsessed with Halloween. Ever since I was young, my father was scaring us. Halloween was the best day of the year because my parents were able to scare children and decorate the house. When I met my wife, I found out that her parents were also obsessed with Halloween. This made me fall in love with her because my parents had passed this obsession down to me. She loved to scare children. It was also disturbing how much she loved when children cried. But I learned to love her and we both were excited every year when October came. One of the biggest obstacles for our house was the HVAC equipment. In this day of age, every HVAC appliance has to be up to code before you can let the public into your house. Since my wife and I love to scare people, we love to let the public come. So we had to pay the HVAC Company a lot of money to come and renovate. We had all of the newest HVAC technology installed in our house. We chose an HVAC zone control and a ductless HVAC unit. The filtration system helped with the fog machines. In the end, we were happy to pay an HVAC business to come and update everything. All year round, we have an amazing furnace and air conditioner. Also, when Halloween comes around, we are already up to code. I just hope that my children are not little babies and are able to have fun for Halloween. My sister was a baby all of her life. We were not able to wear anything scary one year because she would cry in the bathroom until we took off our costume.
