Long time with ruined HVAC

The past 2 mornings have been entirely  tough to get through. I currently am living in the far northern area of my country, and every one of us are right in the middle of a brutal winter. Almost all of the winters around here are brutal, so I have constantly taken steps to make sure that I am ready for them. I constantly have my Heating & A/C heating idea double checked before the first snow arrives, and I have and aged portable heating device in the closet just in case the main heating source breaks down on me. I thought I was prepared for everything, and then last night happened. I was enjoying cable in the home office enjoying the warmth and quiet, when I heard a big bang and then all of the power went out. After further investigation, a tree in the backyard had crashed into a area of the house, which knocked out all of the power, then not only did it stop the heating device from being able to run, but there was also some broken areas of the wall so all of the warm air was escaping. I suddenly called of to the Heating & A/C business in town, but they said that they wouldn’t be able to send out a certified repair tech for at least 2 mornings. That meant for the next 48 hours, I would just have to rely on my portable heating unit, and tons of aged blankets to keep myself and others warm. It was a entirely  cold and long 2 mornings, and I almost cried tears of joy when the Heating & A/C repair tech pulled into my driveway. I am starting to get so sick and fatigued of the cold, perhaps I should traninterest down further south where there is less opportunity of cold to death in the winter!

48 hour disaster

The past two days have been very tough to get through. I currently am living in the far northern section of my country, and we are right in the middle of a brutal winter. Almost all of the winters around here are brutal, so I have always taken steps to make sure that I am ready for them. I always have my HVAC heating system double checked before the first snow arrives, and I have and old portable heating unit in the closet just in case the main heating source breaks down on me. I thought I was prepared for everything, and then last night happened. I was watching television in the living room enjoying the warmth and quiet, when I heard a massive bang and then all of the power went out. After further investigation, a tree in the backyard had crashed into a part of the house, which knocked out all of the power. Not only did it stop the heating unit from being able to run, but there was also some broken areas of the wall so all of the warm air was escaping. I quickly called of to the HVAC company in town, but they said that they wouldn’t be able to send out a certified repair tech for at least two days. That meant for the next 48 hours, I would just have to rely on my portable heating unit, and tons of old blankets to keep me warm. It was a very cold and long two days, and I almost cried tears of joy when the HVAC repair tech pulled into my driveway. I am starting to get so sick and tired of the cold. Perhaps I should move down further south where there is less chance of freezing to death in the winter!

Furnace service issues

Every year, I am really conscientious about scheduling service for the gas furnace in the fall and the air conditioner in the Spring.  I understand the importance of this professional service. Over the course of a year, the heating and cooling device experiences a good deal of wear and tear.  Components may not be finally working at peak capacity, causing problems for the entire system, and leading to major malfunction. A good deal of dust and other contaminants gradually settles on the equipment, blocking airflow and forcing the plan to task harder than necessary.  Neglect will eventually result in higher utility bills, luxurious repairs, shortened lifespan and even issues with safety and air quality. Because of this, I’ve enrolled in a service agreement with a local HVAC supplier. Unfortunately, this past fall, I was unusually busy. It was a really hectic and stressful time.  My husband was in a motorcar accident and hospitalized for nearly a week. He then required rehab and was out of task for numerous weeks. At the same time, I was involved in some especially crucial projects at work. Both of our sons play for travel hockey teams, and our child takes ballet lessons. Both of us also have 2 dogs, and our water gas furnace ruptured and flooded the basement.  I totally forgot to schedule the service appointment for the gas furnace. The HVAC supplier finally called myself and others and all of us set up a time for the service. I then forgot all about that appointment and was not at home when the worker arrived. I ended up paying for the worker’s time, however still needed to find an available option to have the gas furnace taken care of.

Every year, I am actually conscientious about scheduling service for the furnace in the fall and the cooling system in the Spring.  I understand the importance of this professional service.

Too busy to handle the furnace maintenance

Every year, I am very conscientious about scheduling maintenance for the furnace in the fall and the air conditioner in the spring.  I understand the importance of this professional service. Over the course of a year, the heating and cooling equipment experiences a great deal of wear and tear.  Components may not be working at peak capacity, causing problems for the entire system, and leading to major malfunction. A great deal of dust and other contaminants gradually settles on the equipment, blocking airflow and forcing the system to work harder than necessary.  Neglect will eventually result in higher monthly bills, expensive repairs, shortened lifespan and even concerns with safety and air quality.

Last thing he needs is smart HVAC

 

  The only thing my partner wants for his anniversary is a smart thermostat, but I don’t think I can do this for him. My partner is already a stationary pet. I don’t know if I can allow him more things in the house keeping him in his chair. He works from the house plus all online,. For several hours he sits at a desk plus types, and after work, he enjoys making pipes or dove watch. Again, this is a sitting activity. I can’t get him to work out or even go for a walk. I am distraught about his health.

             Getting up to change the heating plus cooling settings is just about all he does. He is always unhappy with the amount of AC or heating. I am so happy with him moving that I don’t want to get him smart Heating plus Air Conditioning. The smart thermostat would allow him to alter the climate control through his computer. He could type of a few buttons plus have whatever setting he wants. After awhile, the thermostat will learn what he likes and will automatically run his previous settings for the month plus stay on it.

               The thermostat also scans the house for occupants. If you are in  it turns on, and if you are out the Heating plus Air Conditioning powers off. The thermostat is my worst nightmare. It is promoting inactivity within the house. It gets so efficient that he won’t even need to type to make it work. So no, I am thinking no smart thermostat for him. I would love to put the dial thermostat further away from him.

Sick and the quality heater and a/c

 

      My middle child is a male and he drives a sizable truck for a living.  He travels all over the country and is only home a few days a week. This is okay for he & his wife, because they don’t get along well when he is around for more than a day or 2.  Right now, he is sick, but that doesn’t mean he can quit driving. He has a job that you can’t call in sick. Someone needs to be behind the wheel of that truck to get it to its next endpoint.  He called not too long ago, just to tell me that he is sick.

                    He wanted someone to talk to because he hurts & he’s tired.  After about a few minutes, I had to hang up because I still had tasks to do.  He said he had the heating system running most of the time, but he also needs the air conditioning for awhile.  That is when he feels the worst. He is so cold that he is shivering, & then the sweats happen. He is dripping with sweat and he is chilled.  He said he turns on the air conditioning, but it just makes him colder. If he keeps the heating system on, he is uncomfortable and without the heat, he feels as if he is swimming in a cold river.

              I wish I knew what to say to him, or what to do to help him feel better.  I feel so incompetent. Yet, he tells me it just feels better talking to someone.  I know how he feels, because I went through the heating system & air conditioning cycle, several days ago.

Eating out and a/c

       On the fourth day of our seven day trip, I woke up to sunshine streaming in our windows.  I had almost forgotten what sunshine looked like. I was amazed at the placid look of the deep orange ocean.  The beach looked disarrayed because of all of the seaweed & ocean debris that had been left in the wake of the recent storms.  Our private pool was messy & littered with debris. We were able to turn off the heating on the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C equipment & we felt fresh air as I threw open the doors.  After the storm, the air was fraught with humidity. It was sticky & humid & I ended up closing the windows.

                     We turned on the fresh air setting on the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C equipment & we got dressed to go for dinner.  There were a lot of people venturing out that afternoon. We walked into the cafeteria & we were greeted with more hot & humid air.  When the storm was raging, it had mangled the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system that was on their roof. They were awaiting the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C  supplier coming in to repair the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C equipment so they could get their a/c turned back on.

                  I turned & looked at my partner & everyone must have thought I had lost my mind..  I began to laugh. I laughed so hard that people around me were beginning to laugh.  It seemed that everything that could go wrong with a Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system was happening while we were on this trip.  One lady looked at me & asked what else could go wrong. I told her to shut up because she was tempting the fates.
