Blocking out our cooling system

I don’t think there’s any explanation for my kids’ behavior other than there being some sort of unspoken rule that you’re forbidden to use any form of common sense as a teen. There are some days where I can’t even believe that my kids are doing well in school. I’m surprised at the amount of patience I have for them to be honest. As I mentioned, my kids get amazing marks in school, and always make the Honor Roll, and yet they are lost when they have to try and tell time off an analog clock on the wall. They also can’t seem to wrap their head around how our HVAC system works. My daughter is a prime example of this. Yesterday morning she comes to breakfast complaining that she got no sleep last night. When I asked her why, she told me about how hot it has been in her room. She said it feels like she’s getting now air flow in there. Automatically thinking there was something wrong with our HVAC equipment, I decided to take a look with her after breakfast to see if we could find the source of the problem. It actually wasn’t that hard to find. She had pictures of celebrities and strange artwork plastered all over her walls. The posters covered every inch – including the air vents. I couldn’t even find them through all the paper. I told her she could easily solve the problem herself just by taking down some of her posters. Upon her confusion, I went on to say that the air vents can’t work right if she covers them up. I couldn’t believe how hard it was for her to properly understand such a simple concept. I left her room actually considering buying a mini-split ductless system just for her room, in case she didn’t take the posters down and continued to complain.

Changing the cooling filter

Usually when people talk about changing all the air filters for their house, they’re usually thinking of the air filter that’s with the cooling system… And while it is critical to make sure that air filter is frequently rotated to keep the indoor air conditions pristine, the other filter shouldn’t be ignored in the process, either! That other filter is, of course, the furnace filter. Like the air filter for your air conditioner system, the gas furnace filter works to trap dust, dirt and all kinds of debris before it can mess up the other components of the gas furnace. You’d be surprised how many issues can be caused by a dirty gas furnace filter! And I know how useful a gas furnace filter is; last year, I had our heating, ventilation and air conditioning repair specialist come by the lake house one day and perform his proper Heating and A/C checkup and tune-up! Instead of simply changing our air filter as usual, he went to the basement of our lake house to check the gas furnace out, too. And then he changed out the gas furnace filter as well! When he removed the filter, a ton of dirt, dust and soot came out with it. My Heating and A/C repair specialist gave me a look. And then he asked me if I’d ever changed the gas furnace filter out before! Honestly, I didn’t even feel it existed till then! But from that afternoon forward, I’ve been habitual about keeping the gas furnace filter clean. I’ll change it even in summer, just to make sure the air quality isn’t somehow being affected – and that our gas furnace stays clear of any dust floating around the basement!

Putting in a cooling system

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade! That was the mantra of our life this past year, as it seemed like life had an great supply of lemons to throw my way! It was getting old, that’s for sure. While plenty of little things kept happening that would create a new hole in my, the worst was when a bad winter time storm came through town. We had more than three feet of snow come down, and the weight caused the roof of our old shed to collapse! Not only did I lose a shed that had been on my property for over forty years, but I also lost practically everything inside due to the significant water damage, and since I had to demolish the remains and start fresh, I decided I would build a shed that was deserving of these new times, but not only did I build our new shed to be much better, although I also sure to add a ductless mini-split heating and air conditioner unit, then having a pressing comfortable shed with plenty of airflow is key to getting through projects under a tight schedule, as you can’t risk stepping out of the garage every hour just to cool off, but you waste so much time doing that! This way, the indoor air conditions remains excellent as you work tirelessly in the hot heat while I was in the winter, or the cool air conditioner in the summer. This ductless mini-split system delivers on keeping myself and others comfortable, and buying a mini-split system that comes equipped with an air purification system was icing on the cake. With all these features, the HVAC system in our new shed is right in line with the times.

I live in an harshly seasoned house on a crucial piece of property.  There are benefits and drawbacks to such an seasoned home. I like the hardwood floors, doors and moldings.  I like the crucial windows, high ceilings and wide front porch. Everything was built to last, with top quality materials.  However, all of my systems were totally seasoned when I moved in. The electrical wiring was not up to code, and the plumbing pipes were all corroded and obstructed with sediment.  The oil furnace, central cooling idea and ductwork were harshly inefficient, noisy and not at all environmentally friendly. Plus, the apartment had easily little insulation in the walls and none of the windows were thermal paned or sealed tight.  However, one of my number one features of the apartment is the seasoned and enormous attic fan. When I first spotted the fan in the attic, I didn’t quite understand the purpose of it. I ended up doing some research, and realized that the fan could possibly improve the comfort and health of the house, while also trimming my weekly utility bills.  The fan runs absolutely independent from the Heating and A/C system. On evenings when it’s not quite hot enough to require the cooling system, I run the attic fan. It pulls heat out of the house and attic and sends it outside. It helps to circulate fresh air and combats stuffy smells and problems with humidity. My family sleeps better with the fresh, cool air circulating.  Because of operating the fan overnight, the house is far cooler in the afternoon. When I beginning up the central undefined, it doesn’t need to job as difficult to achieve an sufficient temperature. Not only does it cost less to run the cooling system, but the equipment suffers less wear and tear. It should last longer and succumb to fewer repairs.

Why you need to update the heater

In the northern region, the Winter season is absolutely the longest season.  The nights start turning cold, forcing us to close our windows, by the end of July.  Both of us most often start up the gas furnace in September. It’s not unheard of for us to have various inches of snow by Halloween, very often, the people I was with and I also have snow at Easter.  The gas furnace runs non stop for sixto multiple weeks. During the Winter season, the frosty outdoor air is terribly dry. Blasting heat into the beach loft further lowers relative humidity levels. The loft then becomes so excessively dry that it causes complications.  Dry air pulls moisture out of everything it touches. Fine wood furnishings, hardwood floors, and songsal instruments can become injured. Static shock can injure low voltage electronic equipment. Dry skin, frizzy hair, chapped lips, bloody noses and headaches are a few of the various consequences of overly dry air.  Plus, these dry conditions make people more susceptible to infection. It also takes longer to get over colds, coughs, sore throat and flu when humidity levels are below the ideal range. Since dry air feels colder than respectfully moisturized air, it encourages higher temperature control settings. Bumping up the temperature control results in higher energy costs and greater wear and tear on the gas furnace.  Because of the long and brutally frosty Winter seasons in our local area, nearly pretty much everyone has invested into a whole-beach loft humidifier. The many types of humidifiers include fan-powered, bypass and steam-style, with each having odd benefits and setbacks. These permanently installed humidifiers allow homeowners to not only introduce necessary moisture into the air, but regulate the amount of moisture.  The humidifiers run quietly, require only annual maintenance, and greatly improve comfort and indoor air pollen levels.

Our ruined heater and air conditioner

I work at one of the last huge department store chains in the USA. All of us have tons of customers coming in and out all the time, and things get to be quite wild in here most of the time, and even in the age of the internet, the store is regularly jam packed and people absolutely still do come in person to buy clothing and other items a department store sells, then the in store traffic of people however came to a halt the other week when the store’s heating and cooling system completely broke down. Right now it is winter time months, and outside is pretty freezing cold for the next month or so, and without heating pumping through the place, it is hard for anyone to be able to shop, nonetheless any of us having the bodies to be able to work in such rapidly changing temperatures. Heating is just as crucial as is air conditioner during the summer time months. Without heating and air conditioner, it can make your life pretty hard because I am pretty sure that every single last one of us has got so used to air conditioner and heating system, that it is a natural way of life! The store did finally get the heating and the air conditioner fixed by the next few days, and then it  was back to normal at our nice old department store. They will make sure to keep new on all the heating and cooling needs in the future after this situation happening!
