My parents used to always ground me from the A/C

When I was a kid and my room was on the top floor, I would always get grounded from the A/C system in my room.

We did not have central air conditioning in our house, but my parents got me a window unit air conditioner for my birthday when I turned 13.

I thought it was the best birthday present that I had ever gotten.The temperature on the top floor of our house always gets really hot, and since my room was also on the upstairs level, I would get super hot during the summertime. Being overly hot always makes me crabby and it also keeps me from sleeping very well. Whenever I got that window unit air conditioner for my birthday, I felt like I was on top of the world. I started to keep the temperature in my room at a freezing cold level most of the time. My parents knew how much I liked that air conditioner, and so whenever I would get into trouble, they got me where it hurt. Instead of grounding me from TV or from parties or hanging out with my friends, they would ground me from my window unit air conditioning system. That was the worst! I had to make sure that I didn’t get into trouble during the summer very much or I would end up being miserable whenever they would take away my A/C unit. Looking back on it now, I guess it was pretty funny. However, trying to live through that was not funny to me at all.

The HVAC company service in this town is the best

The service that we get from the HVAC company in this town is really the best.

I used to live in a large city, and let me tell you, the idea of getting personalized service was just a dream.

I was never able to get good service from anyone whenever I was living in the big city. I feel like when you are living in a really large city, you tend to just be a number on an invoice to the people who are doing any type of service work for you. That’s just how it is. No matter if I was having someone work on my car, my refrigerator, or my HVAC system, it just didn’t matter. I never was able to get any kind of personal service because the workers just couldn’t remember me. When you’re having to deal with hundreds of new people a week, there is just no way that you could possibly be able to remember everyone, that’s for sure. I guess that’s probably the main reason. I don’t think it’s because the service workers in the city were any worse than the ones in the small town where I live now. Still, though, it’s hard not to like it better here in the smaller town where we are living now. The HVAC company has been especially wonderful. All of the HVAC technicians treat us like family, almost, and we have only had them come to work on our air conditioning system once. It’s like they make it a part of their service to get to know you and to be extra friendly to you and your family.

Humidity control is directly linked to your air conditioning

At first, whenever I moved down here, I thought that I could leave the air conditioning turned off and it wouldn’t be a problem for me.

A lot of people don’t know it, but humidity control is directly linked to how well your air conditioning system works in your house. Whenever I first found this out, I was shocked. I really had no idea that air conditioning had anything to do with humidity control at all. For me, I just thought that air conditioning was simply for cooling your house down in the summer and that was it. However, when I moved to a climate with a lot more humidity, I learned all about how important air conditioning actually is to the indoor air quality in your home. Without air conditioning, you end up with super high humidity in your home and that can end up making you absolutely miserable. That’s what happened to me. At first, whenever I moved down here, I thought that I could leave the air conditioning turned off and it wouldn’t be a problem for me. That’s when I found out differently because some of my stuff got mold on it! One day I was minding my own business, dusting the furniture and doing a little bit of cleaning. That’s when I saw that the books and the desk in the office had a pale sheen of green on top of them! It was a layer of mold and I knew that it was because of all of the humidity in the house. That’s when I started to run the air conditioning all the time whether I thought that I needed it or not. Even if the temperature inside felt just fine to me, I knew that I needed to keep the A/C going or I would end up with mold all over everything!

I did the dumbest thing when I accidentally voided my warranty

My friend is a contractor, and sometimes he leaves different pieces and parts there in my garage and I knew which part I needed to fix my air conditioning system.I decided to just go ahead and do it myself, but that’s when I realized that someone who is not a certified HVAC technician is not allowed to do any of the repairs on my particular central air conditioning system

I am not a person who usually makes big mistakes when it comes to expensive things in my life like my car or my house. However, I did the dumbest thing recently when I accidentally voided my warranty on my nearly new HVAC system. Honestly, I was really just trying to do the right thing. I was trying to save myself some time and keep our local HVAC company from having to make a special trip out to my house to fix the air conditioning for me. I knew what was wrong with the air conditioning system, and I just happened to have the part there at my house. My friend is a contractor, and sometimes he leaves different pieces and parts there in my garage and I knew which part I needed to fix my air conditioning system.I decided to just go ahead and do it myself, but that’s when I realized that someone who is not a certified HVAC technician is not allowed to do any of the repairs on my particular central air conditioning system. It was too late though, I had already put the part in, and they would be able to tell that I had worked on it myself! I was so mad when I realized that I had voided my warranty. That warranty on the HVAC system was one of the main reasons that I bought that particular one in the first place. Sometimes I just don’t think things through before I do them and that is definitely to my detriment most of the time.

Repair old windows to minimize heat loss in your home

When summer ends and the weather becomes cooler, it’s time to begin focusing on how to Winterize your home and not incur high heating costs.

An essential step you can take is having your oil furnace checked out by a professional.

They will give you peace of mind that the unit is working efficiently and won’t break down in the middle of winter. In addition, check that your fireplace is sealed well and that you have an energy-efficient geothermal heat pump installed. There are some actions you can take to minimize heat loss in your home, like adding draft stoppers to doors and windows, covering bare floors with carpets, and buying heavy curtains to block out cold drafts. When you take such actions, you can stay warm all Wintertime long since you only need a little heat from the furnace. I believe that if you have old windows this is the reason behind the high amount of heat loss. As a result, you pay more for your heating expenses each month. Sometimes by placing your hand near the windows you can easily check for a draft of cold air coming in through the gaps. If there’s a draft, you’re losing more heating that your Heating and A/C system puts out. Check whether you can repair all of the windows in your house and do so pronto. If repairing them is out of the question then maybe it’s time to look into replacing all of the windows with something newer and airtight and energy efficient. There’s no point to waste money paying for more heat when it all escapes because of old windows.

As an HVAC technician, I drink alot of water

Currently, I work at the company and plan to stay there for the next 15 years

When I play a lot of sports in the sand during the summer months, I drink several liters of water every day. After playing two-on-two volleyball, I drink eight liters of water. I usually drink one liter of water in the winter since I am not as thirsty as I am in the summer. In spite of this, I still drink more water in the winter because it is one of the best ways to cleanse the body. My HVAC company where I work a lot during the day often uses a large five gallon jug of water during the summer, especially when it is extremely hot outside. Whenever I am working on HVAC systems in commercial buildings, I always bring a large jug of frozen water so that it will stay cool during the thaw. Due to these jobs, I can spend hours working and drink the entire jug by the end of the day. My experience of working with the HVAC representatives and technicians in the office has always been positive. Currently, I work at the company and plan to stay there for the next 15 years. As a way of keeping my mind sharp and earning a few extra dollars to supplement my retirement income, I may still perform some HVAC repair work during my retirement. I am a valuable member of the team because of my experience in the HVAC industry.
