This is a pretty small heater

The HVAC program inside of our house isn’t big enough for the square footage of our dwelling. When the HVAC program was originally installed, there was no addition on the house, then a few years ago, my parents decided to completely enclose the garage. When the garage was turned into a living space, the HVAC program was ducted to the garage. Unfortunately, that added an additional 400 square feet to the HVAC plan. Our HVAC system was only equipped to handle 2000 square feet of living area so the additional square footage put us well over the limit for our HVAC system. My spouse and I didn’t consider this, when the two of us bought this house off my parents. One of us should have had an evaluation done on the HVAC system, but my spouse and I wanted to save money. Looking back, my spouse and I have a big problem in our home, because the master living room is never respectfully the right temperature. During the summer season, my spouse and I have two fans going all day long. There is a fan on each side of our living room, so neither of us sweat profusely while we watch TV. During the winter time season, our living room is rather frigid. Both of us had to purchase a small heater, which the my spouse and I keep running all evening long. The winter season is always the worst, because our living room is almost 15 degrees colder than the rest of our home. Once my spouse  and I bought the portable heater, both of us slept well all evening long. That was the first fantastic sleep that my spouse and I had gotten, since the winter season began.

My bedroom could use a portable heater

The HVAC system inside of my house, isn’t large enough for the square footage of my dwelling. When the HVAC system was originally installed, there was no addition on the house. A few years ago, the previous owner completely enclosed the garage. When the garage was turned into a living space, the HVAC system was ducted to the garage. Unfortunately, that added an additional 400 square feet to the HVAC plan. Our HVAC plan was only equipped to handle 2000 square feet of living area. The additional square footage put us well over the limit for our HVAC system. My wife and I didn’t know this, when we purchased this house. We should have had an evaluation done on the HVAC system, but we wanted to save money. That was a huge mistake, looking back on it. Now we have a huge problem in our home, because the master bedroom is never properly climate controlled. During the summer season, my wife and I have two fans going all day long. There is a fan on each side of our bedroom, so neither of us sweat profusely while we sleep. During the winter season, our bedroom is extremely cold. We had to purchase a small heater, which we keep running all night long. The winter season is always the worst, because our bedroom is almost 15 degrees colder than the rest of our home. When we purchased the portable heater, we both slept well all night long. That was the first good night’s sleep that we had gotten, since the winter season began.

How did this get damaged?

Now days, I often look back fondly on the camping trips with my family as a kid.  Every one of us had a beat up seasoned RV that we would use for weeks at a time. I would come current home on the last day of university to a packed camper every summer season! As a little child I loved it however as I got older I felt like I was missing out and would beg to stay home, as it was so uncomfortable in the cramped camper! Every one of us grew up in the West as well as that is where we camped as well, it was really harsh weather in the summer. Once we parked the rig we would rely on a respected window device air conditioning system to keep us cool. It worked okay when we first obtained it. But by the time were in our mid teen as well as resisting camp the most, the A/C had seen better afternoons. One summer season, our HVAC unit finally decided to quit on us, then every one of us had turned it on min afternoon as we were leaving for a hike, this way it could run all day while we were in peak heat! When we arrive  fatigued as well as tepid after our hike, the camper would be nice and cool. Well, it must have broken right after we left. Every one of us knew it had been slowing down however thought we had more time! When we arrived back at the camper it was sweltering, too hot to even sleep in! Every one of us slept under the stars in our lawn chairs just to catch a breeze, it ended up being fun! Now my parents have a big costly RV that they obtained when they retired although I miss the seasoned afternoons sometimes.

My camper had a big issue

As an adult I remember all of the fun memories I had camping with family. The people I was with and I had a beat up ancient Winnebago that we would park KOA’s for weeks at a time, i would come cabin on the last day of university to a packed up our camper every time summer rolled around. As a little kid I loved it, but as I got older I felt prefer I was missing out on things with our friends and would beg to stay home, but plus it was so uncomfortable in the cramped camper! The people I was with and I grew up in the West and that is where we camped as well, it was seriously warm during the summer! Once we parked the rig we would rely on a regular window machine air conditioning machine to keep us cool. It worked okay when we first bought it, but by the time were in our mid teen and resisting camp the most, the A/C had seen better days. One very warm summer, it finally decided to quit on us. The people I was with and I had turned it on min afternoon as we were leaving for a hike. This way it could run all day while in peak heat… When we arrive tired and warm after our hike, the camper would be cool. Well, it must have broken right after we left. We all knew it had been slowing down but thought we had more time! When we arrived back to the camper, it was sweltering inside. We all decided to sleep under the stars in our turf chairs just to catch a breeze, it ended up being fun, but now our parents have a important fancy RV that they bought when they retired but I miss the ancient days occasionally.

The winter weather is a big problem

Winter came early this year, and I really wasn’t ready for it.  I had not yet put away my barbecue grill or patio furniture, & it was already snowing like silly outside.  I hadn’t even finished raking up the eaves and harvesting from my vegetable garden.  I had to hurry up and close down the swimming pool and bring out the snow shovels.  I needed to find the Winter boots, coats, hats & gloves, & store the summer season sandals & shorts.  Plus, the portable a/c was still installed in my dining room window, allowing in chilly air.  Because there was so much to do, I did not have the opportunity to schedule annual maintenance for my gas gas furnace.  The outside temperature seemed to drop from seventy to thirty degrees overnight, & I needed to start the gas furnace up.  Unfortunately, the furnace began making scary screeching noise & supplied an insufficient amount of heat.  I did what I could to take care of the heating equipment.  I changed the air filter, cleaned the supply & return vents, & lowered the setting on the thermostat by a few degrees.  The concerns with the furnace only worsened as the unusually frigid weather forced myself and others to run it continually.  When I called for professional service, I had trouble getting an appointment.  Every HVAC supplier in the area were booked because of so many heating program malfunctions.  I have now learned to schedule maintenance for the gas furnace at the end of summer season so that it’s up and running of the winter.

This missed maintenance lead to a malfunction

Winter arrived early this year and let’s just say that I wasn’t ready for it.  I had not yet put away our barbecue grill or patio furniture, plus it was already snowing like ridiculous outside.  I hadn’t even finished raking the Fall leaves out of the lawn or harvested all of our squash from the vegetable garden. I had to rush and close down my swimming pool in the backyard and also haul out the snow shovels plus ice scrapers. I really needed to get winter boots, coats, hats plus gloves, and finally store my sandals and short shorts until the summer rolls around again.  Plus, the portable air conditioner system was still installed in our home office window, allowing the freezing air. Because there was so much to do hastily, I did not have the opening to schedule an annual repair for our gas furnace.  The outside temperature dropped about thirty degrees overnight, plus I needed to start the furnace up. Unfortunately, the furnace immediately began making an horrifying screeching noise plus supplied an insufficient amount of heat.  I did what I could to take care of the heating equipment. I had changed the air filter, cleaned the supply plus return vents, plus lowered the setting on the temperature control by a few degrees. The complications with the furnace only worsened as the freezing weather forced me to have it running continually. When I called for professional service, I had trouble getting an appointment.  Every HVAC corporation in the area was getting barraged with phone calls because of gas furnace malfunctions. I have now l gained to schedule repair for my furnace before the end of summer, to make sure it gets serviced.

This always leads to a malfunction

Winter arrived super early this year, and I wasn’t ready for it.  I had not yet put away my barbecue grill or patio furniture, and it was already snowing like crazy outside.  I hadn’t even finished raking the autumn leaves out of the lawn or harvested all of my squash from the vegetable garden.  I had to hurry up and close down the swimming pool and haul out the snow shovels and ice scrapers.  I needed to find the winter boots, coats, hats and gloves, and store the summer sandals and shorts.  Plus, the portable air conditioner was still installed in my bedroom window, allowing in freezing cold air.  Because there was so much to do very quickly, I did not have the opportunity to schedule annual maintenance for my gas furnace.  The outside temperature seemed to drop from seventy to thirty degrees overnight, and I needed to start the furnace up.  Unfortunately, the furnace immediately began making an alarming screeching noise and supplied an insufficient amount of heat.  I did what I could to take care of the heating equipment.  I changed the air filter, cleaned the supply and return vents, and lowered the setting on the thermostat by a few degrees.  The problems with the furnace only worsened as the unusually cold weather forced me to run it continually.  When I called for professional service, I had trouble getting an appointment.  Every HVAC contractor in the area was getting barraged with calls because of heating system malfunctions.  I have now learned to schedule maintenance for the furnace at the end of summer, to make sure it doesn’t get overlooked.

 

What are my options

I have seriously considered upgrading the home’s temperature control device, but currently our guy and I easily working on a digital control unit, then both of us literally turn a dial to a set temperature… That is about all both of us can do. The control equipment works nice and the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C plan seems glad. However, I suppose it would be super nice to have a smart control unit; My guy and I have great internet and a fast connection, but i suppose a smart control equipment would actually thrive in our home. The control equipment works via WIFI and learns your heating and cooling behaviors. Then the control equipment will keep that Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C program for you. The control equipment learns how you want each room heated and cooled to. It learns the spot, the morning and the time, but so on Sunday afternoons the cooling plan will kick on as you get ready for work, then on Monday afternoons the heating system in the home office will kick on knowing you are still in bed. The control equipment is that nice and that efficient. It also always scans your home. If you leave, the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C plan is off… When you come in the door, the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C plan will kick on. It also will alert you if you are not setting the equipment as energy efficiently as you could. It will even notify you on air filter changes. I want all of these neat features in our home. I want to have temperature control at our fingertips. I want to just let the control equipment take care of all of our worries, but no offense to the dial control unit, but it needs to go.
