That HVAC unit was messed up

For my birthday I got to pick where the family goes to eat.

I choose to go to the local pub near my home.

I was thinking about the birthday dinner all year. At supper, my family in addition to I were eating, drinking booze in addition to abruptly I noticed I was really hot. Everyone at the table came up with reasons why, maybe the a/c component is awful, or perhaps the Heating in addition to the A/C system was old, or went out early on in the day! The staff may have been too inexperienced or too busy to not notice the issues that the place needed. I was so aggravated by the lack of cooling that I wanted to leave. The waitress assured me they would bring fans in addition to cool the stadium down. I knew some electrical stuff. I wanted to see their Heating and A/C unit. I figured I could fix it. The waitress allowed me to take a glance in addition to I wish I wouldn’t have. There were loose wires, dust, outdated filters in addition to dangerous, hazardous situations for all the people! Health code wasn’t even up to it with the cooling in addition to heating. The insulation may have been 50 years old with it. I was astounded. How can such irresponsible things be done at this pub? I wasn’t able to fix it when it was at that level. I told the waitress they needed a good Heating in addition to A/C professional and to expect a giant bill.

I failed at that repair

My aunt was an A/C specialist, in addition to she taught me a lot.

When my cooling unit at the beach house quit on me, I was a little out of my comfort zone.

I decided not to test my skills on my expensive a/c device. I barely paid attention as a child. My unit was a few grand, it was worth a few bucks to get someone with an actual degree in HVAC. The woman sent to maintenance the unit couldn’t do it though. She said that the part needed in the system wasn’t available. They had nothing in store in addition to the section being on backorder. She said she would come back the next week. She would have the part in addition to be able to repair the a/c. It was a whole week of hot, miserable days. I was dying in the heat. I knew I wouldn’t sleep well without a good cooling unit. It was an eye opening experience to say the least. It made me entirely like my a/c unit in addition to wish I would have paid attention to my aunt. I was dying in the heat in addition to having no clue what to do. I wasn’t going to call my aunt since she would be disappointed I didn’t retain any of her knowledge. By the time the week ended, the woman was back to service the unit. She did a great job. The unit was washed, oiled in addition to tightened. The current repair went in fast. The only thing that stunk was being charged for labor, the section in addition to many days of work.

Should have gotten a mechanic

I waited a day for the HVAC gal to not get a repair

I needed a serviceman badly on my last vacation! I was road tripping in addition to just taking whatever hotel was around. I also was relying on my outdated vehicle to make it all over the world. Then my a/c in the vehicle went out. What a good way to start the southern portion of my trip. I was going from north to south. So the weather was getting warmer as I moved. Why couldn’t there be no A/C when I was in the north? I went by using the windows in addition to fresh air. In the south, you need to have some ac. Being perfectly comfortable is absolutely huge when you’re on a trip! I mean it’s difficult to argue with that 1. I set out looking for someone to help me in the city, a reliable heater in addition to A/C business should do the job right? One said they had a spot for me available early the next day. I called around to other Heating in addition to A/C dealers and they were all booked up. So I had to wait a full day to get someone to come over. The supplier was started a long time ago. They are a family run business. My HVAC company was super nice. However, when I showed her the issue was with my vehicle a/c, she started laughing at me. So a Heating in addition to A/C company doesn’t repair Heating in addition to A/C in a car. They do residential in addition to commercial units. She told me I needed a mechanic. I waited a day for the HVAC gal to not get a repair. It was all my fault.

Not easy fixing a/c

When my friend was visiting last summer, the a/c busted. The Heating in addition to the A/C component was in the basement. I cleared out all the stuff around the device, and got to fixing it! I knew a little about cooling in addition to heating repairs, but never worked much on a system myself. Heating in addition to A/C in addition to plumbing is a great trade to know. But, I haven’t done much. This task was a big 1and the house had to be cooled down. I couldn’t have a guest stay in a hot house. What kind of host would I be? The home had appealing woodwork in addition to fine insulation as well. The stuffy outdoor heat lingered in the home. The added moisture was going to cause mildew in addition to fungi to grow. My wood would swell in addition to being wrecked if the air quality stayed too warm in addition to moist. I worked on the a/c component in 4 minutes for 5 days, it would have taken an Heating in addition to A/C professional not as long. They would have known right away what to do, had the tools in addition to completed the repair. Instead I was searching online, using house made tools in addition to sort of hoping that the unit would amazingly come back to life. Repairing the component was a great accomplishment but difficult. It made me realize doing that for a living would be hard. I also suppose Heating in addition to A/C dealers should make more. I wouldn’t be willing to hang around in someone’s basement at all for minimum wage. It was awful, sizzling in addition to tiring.

Should go into HVAC repair

Growing up in the North was great! The harsh winters made heating an absolute necessity though, however as a prank I would tell the southern visitors I didn’t use heating in the home at night.

I told them to bundle up for the chill.

In reality, heating in addition to the cooling industry is a giant trade up north. The houses are always in need of heating repairs, anyone who knows about Heating in addition to A/C or anyone with half a brain should go into the field. In retrospect down south, folks have a large Air conditioning need. If the cooling system goes out, a Heating in addition to A/C company is called quickly. I had a holiday beach house in the north that always needed some repairs. The home was built in the late 60s. So finding someone who knew about the older homes in addition to Heating in addition to A/C units was always difficult. I called a lot of professionals who knew how to work on those units, repairs in addition to flipping homes is a fine added income. I do that on the side in addition to calling the same Heating in addition to an A/C supplier to help me. My current house in the south uses many cooling units. There is 1 in the family room, dining room, den in addition to bathroom, and heating in addition to A/C is 1 of the biggest corporations that make money in the south. When it is 100 degrees out, all the people are thinking about their cooling system… Everybody either wants to buy a current 1, get repairs on their new 1 or has repair needed to ensure their unit lasts.

My air conditioning technician also offers heater repair at the same hourly rate

It’s hard to see a close friend struggle with their life.

After my best friend and I graduated high school, we stayed close but we chose different paths.

I went to a liberal arts college to study philosophy while he immediately entered the workforce. While I struggled to keep up my GPA amid social turmoil on campus, he was floating from one job to the next because of poor work conditions. Whether or not he was working at a grocery store or a restaurant, he wasn’t happy. Honestly, I don’t blame anyone for hating physical work. But he claimed that he wanted a physical job, just something different than what had already been available to him. This led him to apply to trade school and focus on studying heating, cooling, and ventilation. To my surprise, he landed a high paying position right after he completed his education. He started as an apprentice technician to one of the masters that has been with the company for years. Now after years of experience, my friend is taking on his own apprentice whenever he goes out on installation and repair calls. As most would assume, I use him as my heating and cooling technician. I wouldn’t ever dare calling someone else to fix or service my air conditioner. And like all air conditioner repairmen, he’s trained to fix and service furnaces as well. I have a boiler in my basement that supplies hot water to all of the rooms in my house. Whenever my friend is doing maintenance on my air conditioner, he inspects my boiler and makes any necessary repairs if something is wrong with the device.

I purchased a whole-house dehumidifier after using a plug-in unit for years

My backyard leads to a large freshwater river.

This river stretches for miles before it finally reaches the ocean.

The house is located in a swamp essentially, so naturally we have lots of snakes and alligators. Some of my neighbors purposefully avoid buying small dogs and cats because of the danger with the alligators. A small animal sitting along the bank of the river could be leaving themselves open for a rude awakening if one of those gators lunged out of the water to feed itself. Honestly, there are other things about this region that I hate more than the dangerous wildlife. Aside from the crazy high temperatures during July and August, it’s also humid to the degree that the air feels sticky when you’re outdoors. Many others like me cannot deal with this humidity when it gets indoors. Too many river dwellers are complacent with toxic mold in their houses, but not I. Not only do I run my air conditioner constantly, but I have been using a supplemental dehumidifier for years. Thankfully my bathroom has a floor drain so I can run the drain hose from the back of the dehumidifier onto the bathroom floor. The unit plugs into the wall and pulls out 70 pints of water every 24 hours, which makes a huge difference on indoor humidity. But when my HVAC contractor told me about a whole-house dehumidifier that connects to my ductwork, I was intrigued. This amazing addition pulls moisture out of your indoor air as it recirculates through the heating and cooling system. Best of all, I can turn off the air conditioner but leave the fan inside the air handler running. This effectively turns my air conditioner into a massive central dehumidifier without burning the electricity needed to cool the air simultaneously.

The AFUE annual efficiency ratio measures energy efficiency of your heating system

I’ve been shivering every night while I try to sleep.

I don’t know about others, but being cold at night causes me to get insomnia. Even if I take melatonin or benadryl, the shivering keeps me awake for hours. I figured that a warm blanket and fluffy pajamas would be enough to keep me warm during the twilight hours, but they’re not. If we keep getting blizzards every week like we have for the past month, I’m going to have to make some kind of serious change in my house. It’s a matter of having on demand heat that doesn’t cost so much money that I can’t afford to run it. In the past I’ve had central furnaces that drove up my electricity bill so high that I struggled to rationalize using them. For the longest time I didn’t know of any other kind of residential heat than electric furnaces and wood stoves. I was amazed when I learned about all of these other kinds of heating systems for houses. My electric furnaces of the past were simply one form of fan-forced heating, of which there are other options like gas powered and oil powered furnaces. Otherwise I could get a water heated system like a steam boiler, which itself is either heated with electricity or fuel of some sort. Regardless of what kind of heating system you choose, I discovered there’s a rating system called the AFUE. It stands for annual fuel utilization efficiency and it measures the efficiency of a heater based on how much heat it produces from the fuel it consumes in the process. This allows you to compare the efficiency of an electric furnace to a boiler system without having to fumble around with ratios and other equations.

Burning too many candles can leave soot on your HVAC evaporator coil

I’m lucky to have such a great girlfriend who cares about me as much as she does.

I never ask for anything for my birthday or even holidays for that matter, but she manages to make me feel special like no one ever has before. It doesn’t matter if she simply gets me a leatherbound journal or buys a necklace or watch, I’m always left speechless by her thoughtfulness. When I ask her what she wants for our anniversary or her own birthdays, she tells me not to worry. She’ll claim that she doesn’t want anything, but I know better. I would go to the ends of the earth and back to make my partner happy. Aside from reciprocating with beautiful jewelry from time to time, I also buy her candles. She is obsessed with candles, especially expensive candles. I love it when her eyes light up upon receiving a new candle from me. Last week I bought her a sugar cookie scented candle for the holidays. As much as I love the candles too, they don’t come without their disadvantages. The soot starts to collect on indoor surfaces, especially on walls if they’re painted white or with light colors. But worst of all, the soot can get inside your air conditioning system, which recirculates the area around your house and spreads the black powder even further. Everytime it recirculates, it coats the air conditioner’s evaporator coil. Before long, it can lead to cracks within the coil itself. Even if you use a special filter designed to collect soot, you should be mindful when you’re using candles excessively.

I took the morning off work to monitor my new air conditioning installation

My new job is taking a lot out of me everyday.

Two hours a day are spent on a busy highway with my morning and afternoon commutes. Even if I’m lucky to show up to work without a bad mood accompanying me, I’m sure to get one after an hour of interacting with my coworkers. They can be frustrating, especially the man who is constantly making noise. He fidgets on a level I have never before seen in another person. He’s either addicted to prescription stimulants or he drinks too much coffee. Whether he’s creaking his chair, clicking a pen, talking loudly into the phone, or slamming his keyboard with brute force, I struggle to stay focused during my shift. I asked my boss if I could use headphones and listen to music at low volume, but he refused. It’s definitely not my favorite job of all time, but it isn’t the worst either. Occasionally I’m granted the chance to take a day off from work if I absolutely need to make a doctor’s appointment or meet a relative at the airport. For instance, I took this morning off from work to monitor the installation of my new central air conditioner. My former HVAC system lasted for 18 years before the air handler finally quit working. It was finally time to get a new air conditioner altogether, especially knowing how inefficient my old system was. Thankfully, the installation of my new air conditioner went off without a hitch. I made sure that the technicians vacuumed my copper refrigerant tubes before putting in the new condenser. This prevents any old coolant from contaminating the new system and damaging its compressor outside.
