Something that drives me ridiculous at times s how our guys are always on their cell phones. I’m always telling them to stop it, put their cell phones away and to be respectful. They used to use their cell phones all the time, even at brunch time just texting away. My fiance and I were able to put a stop to that though, though threats. Of course, it seems they rush through their brunch now just so they can just go off and jump back on their cell phones. Even recently, when our Heating and Air Conditioning plan broke down recently, they were just texting away on their phones. I put on some high powered stationary fans while we were waiting for the Heating and Air Conditioning professional to come over and maintenance our cooling machine, however they just stayed on their cell phones in front of the blowing fans. Even when the Heating and Air Conditioning professional was there dedicatedly fixing our temperature control system, they wouldn’t even get off their damn cell phones to say thanks to the person when the air conditioning was now powered up and working again. I’m thinking that I will have to limit their cell phone use because I see that this is entirely getting out of control. Originally we just wanted them to have their phones in the first place so they could keep in contact with us and we could reach them when they were out with their friends. Now we can’t get ahold of them even in the same room.
Since I started doing a lot of varying DIY stuff around our house, I decided to post on our social media account about all the work I was doing. I worked strenuous with our acquaintance to build a nice spare room in our attic space. The two of us tested the framework, insulation, and we even went and connected the air duct to this room. It was a lot of work however you definitely find a way to save a great amount of currency when you do the work yourself; Later on I was showing a little home video of how I cleaned out the outdoor condenser component to our Heating and Air Conditioning plan for the family in the Spring weeks. People entirely liked the fact that you also could do that on your own as it would cost a lot more to call up the professionals from town for maintenance like that, and of course, I only advise that people do particular tasks at home that they are capable of. There are particular things in the home that I wouldn’t touch without a professional myself, especially when it comes to the Heating and Air Conditioning system, however just for example, if there were a coolant leak in the system, you would have to go ahead and call up the professionals because the coolant needed can only be handled by certified Heating and Air Conditioning workers. They first must find the leak, maintenance it, and then carefully refill the coolant to the required levels. I have had this maintenance done a few times before and they did a great task. Also when it comes to cleaning the air duct and having it resealed, I still would have to advise calling the professionals for this type of maintenance as well. It’s really not that you can’t do this on your own, however if you don’t suppose precisely about what you are doing, you can entirely make things a lot worse. If you ruin the entire air duct, it might have to be replaced and that is upscale.
I believe that life is just what we make of it. No one gives you anything, you have to reach out and work for it. I spent a lot of years building up a HVAC company. I started from the ground up and learned everything I could. I never regretted taking this path in my life, and I’ve had a lot of fun with it. I learned what I could and I kept right on learning. When I thought I was too old to learn anymore, my wife told me that there was new equipment and new technology and she set me up for classes. I passed my knowledge of HVAC onto the men that worked for me. I had one young man that was hungry for knowledge. When I decided it was time to retire from being a HVAC tech and HVAC company owner, I offered to sell him the business. I gave him the same deal I got and that was to pay me for two years and then the business was his. I made my money and I was doing well. I have never looked back at the business. I love what I built and I am glad that I am retired. I know there is an excellent HVAC company out there that I will have do any service I \need for my heating and air conditioning. I’ll also get all of my servicing and repairs done for free..
I was beginning to notice that I was slowing down. My wife was no longer with me, and I couldn’t handle this big house all alone. We had lived here for over thirty years and it wasn’t until she passed that I realized how much I wasn’t doing anymore. I had to go to the basement to do laundry. I had to go upstairs to go to bathroom and to go to bed. I didn’t like it and I didn’t like living here alone. I finally decided to sell the house and move. I found a small house that was in an over-fifty community. I liked the house the minute I looked at it. It was all one floor and it had a brand new heating and air conditioning unit. I was surprised at the cost of the house. I had enough from the sale of my home to buy the house and bank a good bit for my retirement. When summer came on full force, I automatically set my thermostat to sixty-eight, like I did when I lived in the bigger house. I noticed that it felt really cool. I upped the thermostat to seventy and then to seventy-two. I was comfortable and I was shocked. When the energy bill came, it was so low that I thought they had made a mistake. When the winter came, I had the same thing going on. I set the thermostat to seventy and then to sixty-eight, and I was comfortable and the energy bill was low. I made a good swap with this house.
I used to think that I had to have the biggest and best of everything, just to make me popular. It’s amazing how I thought that was the case, because it wasn’t how I was brought up. I was brought up by parents who were both humble and always lived within their means. They tried to give us all that we needed and much of what we wanted, but not at the expense of taking away from the necessities. When I got older, I was always looking for the biggest and the best. After I graduated college, I got a really good job, and I immediately began looking for a great house. I was thinking about entertaining and finding a wife that would suit the lifestyle I thought I needed. I never thought about the everyday part of that house. I didn’t realize that bigger and more expensive also included more expensive energy bills. A huge house is very hard to heat and air condition. Heating and air conditioning are not cheap. I learned that the hard way. I really didn’t have anyone to entertain, so I decided to sell the big house and buy a smaller cabin that was more what I needed. I had two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a lovely view from my front porch. I also had heating and air conditioning that was a fraction of the cost of the house I had just sold. I may have downsized, but it was the best move I ever made. I downsized the size and not the quality.
As a young person, I would have the most alarming dreams. I would wake up screaming and crying. When mom would ask me what was wrong, I couldn’t tell her. It was sometimes too frightening to talk about, but most of the time I couldn’t remember. I know that I found myself outside a couple of times. My dad also walked me to bed several times, when he found me with the baseball bat and my cap on, heading outside to play ball. After talking to the doctor, we found out that it was normal when a child was growing, but as long as it didn’t become a big problem, I would outgrow it. Now that I am older, I still find that I have these wildly vivid dreams. I try to do everything I can to make sure my environment is conducive to sleeping well. I have a good HVAC system in my house, and I installed a Smart Thermostat. If there is a problem with my HVAC system, the Smart Thermostat will alert me. I keep the remote for the thermostat right by the bed. If I feel the air conditioning is too low, or the heating is too high, I can adjust it without getting out of bed. Last month, I had forgotten to turn down the thermostat. My furnace was running and the temperature had reached seventy-three. I awoke to feeling like I was caught in the middle of a fire. That’s when I bought the Smart Thermostat. I don’t want to relive that dream for a very, very long time.
I know it sounds a bit weird to most people, but I prefer snuggling with my dog than with anyone else. My wife doesn’t understand it, but what can I say. I have had her for almost fifteen years now. She goes with me on my morning jogs. She gets really cold now, and she shivers. That’s when I know it is time to go back into the house. I turn up the thermostat to help her get warm, when we get into the house. She will lay on the air vent until she sees me curl up in my recliner. Then she drags the blanket off the couch and snuggles up next to me. We huddle under the blanket and we snuggle until we both quit shivering, or until we wake up, which is usually what happens. I love my dog. She snuggles so nicely, and she is better than turning the furnace up. It costs a lot less to snuggle, than to run the furnace. She always managing to help me get warm and I get her warm. My wife gets upset when she sees us snuggling. She told me that I prefer the dog to her. I hate to admit it, but as far as getting some body heat, I get more from my dog than from her. She is more cold blooded than my dog and I. With my wife, I turn up the thermostat and I snuggle. I am sweating to death and she is just getting warm. That’s not saving energy. Maybe she needs to snuggle with the dog.
When my fiance asked me to marry him, we were both so happy. It wasn’t until after the wedding and we were looking to buy the house, that some of the happiness waned. We didn’t want to rent a home anymore, we wanted something we could make to be just ours. We never realized that our poor credit situation would bite us so badly. We couldn’t get a traditional mortgage and we had to go through a mortgage broker, which meant higher interest rates and nothing that was good. We were given such a low budget for the house, that anything we truly loved, was out of our range. We had to settle for something that needed a lot of work. The house was livable, but it needed to be updated. The furnace was old, but they said it worked. We didn’t get any kind of warranty because of the amount of work the house needed. We had a huge backyard, but it was so overgrown, that it was more like a jungle. We had to cut down bushes and small trees, just so we could find any grass. It was going to be a year’s worth of work. In the meantime, our pile of wood and brush was growing and we had it all piled up neatly so we could get a truck to take it away. The first cold night, the furnace went out. My husband tried the fireplace and found out that it worked well. We used the brush and wood to get heat in our house. For the entire winter, we used that fireplace, and we never had to buy any fuel to keep the fireplace running. Our yard supplied a year’s worth of energy.
I remember one summer time the weather was absolutely awful! And I mean far worse than the general heat plus humidity! That summer there was musk plus fog that made the air quality absolutely downright low plus bad! Outside the fog plus musk was so thick you could not even see 3 feet in front of you–really awfully sickening to put it lightly! The air quality both indoors plus outdoors were unlike anything you ever felt in your life. I was so cheerful I had my media whole-house air purifier plus my air purification plan in my home’s Heating plus Air Conditioning plan to combat this poor fog plus musk that was seeping into the town house! I had just at the time invested in a complete heating plus cooling plan replace. The heating plus cooling specialist had sold myself and my fiance on the whole notion of getting an air purification plan plus a humidifier installed with the initial heating plus cooling replacement. At first I was thinking, why on earth would I even need anything appreciate that? It seemed as though it was just an aspect of the Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist’s sales pitches to make a bonus or some extra commission. However, I thought about it plus decided to go with it, and its a miracle that I did too! Because who knew what was coming later that summer. It is almost as if the Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist knew exactly what was going to happen. I was severely thankful that summer for the heating plus cooling replacement that we had. If I had not got that heating plus cooling replace with the humidifier, the air purification plan plus all, my fiance and I would not have survived this fog plus musk attack our area had that year. I was so thankful!
Moving out of our big old house ended up being a pretty smart idea, even if it was slow going at first. After the last of our kids got his own place, the spouse and I realized there was just too much area for us. All of us didn’t desire it, every one of us didn’t need it, and there was no logical purpose to keep spending the extra time, effort, and money to keep such a sizable house. So, we sold it and bought ourselves a cozy little beach house about twenty minutes away, and put enough in the bank to be a safety cushion when every one of us retire. At first the beach house was always so cold, every one of us thought the oil furnace was broken. The little beach house was tiny, however absolutely had a nice sized oil furnace in the furnace closet, so every one of us didn’t really know why heating our little place was such a sizable hassle. The oil furnace seemed to be running when we needed it, at least to our untrained eyup. All of us even also decided to check all each of the air vents by holding our hands in front of them to make sure hot air was being expelled. Finally every one of us had an HVAC service tech come out and provide our system a full inspection. The HVAC tech revealed the problem was not with the oil furnace, but the insulation was pathetic. With such exhausting insulation in the ceiling and the walls, the heater made hot air, but it was all being lost through the walls and roof. The oil furnace was in perfect working order, however every one of us needed insulation in the attic.
