I might install a central air conditioner

I was considering the purchase of a new and improved central air conditioner for our home.  Because of the area where I live, air conditioner isn’t easily necessary for a large part of the year.  The common summertime season is fairly short in addition to often freezing in addition to very damp.  I have consistently managed by opening the windows in addition to plugging in a whole bunch of portable fans as needed.  This isn’t ideal, in addition to is often insufficient to handle boiling hot and humid weather.  I don’t really love having our windows wide open because it is a security risk.  It is that I worry more that the open windows are an invitation for someone to break into the house.  I also have problems with light dust irritations in addition to asthma.  Dust, pollen dander, grass clippings in addition to exhaust fumes trigger our family’s symptoms.  A great several contaminants manage to infiltrate the lake house through the screens, in addition to I’ve noticed I need to do a lot more dusting in addition to vacuuming during the summer months than I ever had to before.  If I had a central cooling plan installed for the home, I could close in addition to lock the windows easily.  I’d avoid the safety threat, air pollutants in addition to exterior noise as well.  My lake house would be serviced at the ideal temperature in addition to the cooling plan would circulate in order to filter the air.  I’ve done a bit of research online to see that in addition new air conditioners offer some impressive SEER ratings.  Because of recent advancements in technology, these systems are wonderful quiet in addition to energy efficient.  I could even upgrade the whole heating in addition to cooling plan to zone control, which would help to trim bi-weekly and monthly bills.  I am still not convinced a central cooling plan is a nice investment, although I have asked a local HVAC business for an estimate for purchase in addition to upgrade costs.

I think this installation is smart

My first job after college was as a reporter for a newspaper in a small, sparsely-populated town up North. Two things happened the year I lived and worked there – a fire at a hotel, and epic ice storm that encased a dozen rural counties across three states. By the third day of the unforgiving freezing rain, power poles and trees were falling like tooth picks, resulting in a complete blackout for our area.

Because of my profession, I spent most of the next week at work, but on the rare chances I had to return to my small, one-bedroom apartment, I wondered how it was staying warm.

There was no power anywhere. It was too dark to see thermostat. At first, I thought I was simply feeling the remainder of the heat before the lights went off. It was 25 degrees out that day. That night, when I came home, it felt like the indoor temperature only dropped by 10 degrees. A floor panel still felt warm. I took a flashlight to the thermostat and saw it had only dropped a few degrees!

I certainly wasn’t complaining. The next day, I’d be forced to work out night, but when I was able to return home to get a few things — I noticed it was still warm! Without a drop of power for miles, how was an electric heater apparently still operating? A rap on the door. My landlord had stopped by. When I asked him how my dark apartment had remained so toasty warm, he replied that he had gone out and bought a generator!

It was a very small one, he said, only enough to keep the heat on so that everyone would be OK.

Getting the newest system

I have undoubtedly endless fond memories of visiting our Aunt Mary with my family.  Mary has been gone to her eternal reward for since a few falls now. However I still believe I dream about her often. So many wonderful times with aunt Mary and I when we used to bake cookies together plus pick wildflowers from her huge backyard. Then there is the time I spent with Aunt Mary for summer which was so lovely, for the most part. However, all of my siblings plus our mother did not like going to Aunt Mary’s new home with me. The main reason they were not fond of visiting her was that there was no air conditioner in her house. They were so spoiled. Since all of us have lived in the south for so long, it was really odd not to have an air conditioner. But, it is true that it was how she lived and rather hot in our aunt’s house. However, I did not care a little bit. She owned a box fan that she would regularly turn on when I arrived. There were also ceiling fans in some of the rooms for sleeping better. However, I was willing to do without the a/c in order to spend time with our beloved aunt in any case. However, nowadays, now that I am older, I don’t believe I could survive without air conditioner anymore. Though, admittedly, when I was a kid it actually didn’t matter! Whether you had a window a/c, central air conditioner, or just ceiling fans plus open windows was not crucial to me. Aunt Mary was a lovely lady, plus even though it was difficult to visit with her because the air conditioner system just wasn’t available, I loved her dearly and will never forget her. It’s a shame that people avoid other people just because they don’t have air conditioner or they don’t wear the right clothes or whatever.

I need to go see my Aunt

I have legitimately fond memories of going to see my Aunt Mary in my young adult years. Mary has been gone to her eternal reward for multiple years now that I am much older, although I still remember about her often.  Aunt Mary plus I used to bake cookies together and on most occasions would pick wildflowers from her big backyard! The time I spent with Aunt Mary was beautiful in all ways. For the most part, however my siblings plus my mother did not like going to visit at Aunt Mary’s home with me. The main reason they were not fond of going to see her was that there was no air conditioning in her house on the beach. Since the few of us all live in the south, it is unrealistic not to have air conditioning. And, believe me, it is true that it was rather sizzling in my aunt’s house. However, I did not care a single little bit, I loved her. She owned a box fan that she would consistently turn on when I would arrive. There were also ceiling fans in some of the rooms, which is why I was willing to do away with the air conditioning system in order to spend time with my beloved aunt. Though, nowadays, now that I am older, I don’t know if I could survive separate from air conditioning, especially with menopause. However, when I was a kid it legitimately didn’t matter to me either way. Whether you have a window air conditioning system, central air conditioning, or just ceiling fans plus open windows it was not pressing to me. Aunt Mary was a beautiful lady, and even though it was difficult to visit with her because the air conditioning just wasn’t available, I loved her dearly to her last day. It’s a shame that people avoid other people just because they don’t have air conditioning or they don’t wear the right clothes or whatever.

We don’t have the right air conditioning

I have genuinely fond memories of visiting my Aunt Mary when I was in high school. Mary has been gone to her very own eternal reward for multiple years now, but I still think about her presence often! Aunt Mary plus I used to bake cookies together, then hunt for wildflowers from her sizable backyard. However the time I spent with Aunt Mary was appealing, for the most part, though, my siblings plus my mother did not like going to Aunt Mary’s house with me in the least. The main reason they were not fond of visiting her home was that there was no air conditioner in the house. Since the two of us all live in the south, it is highly irregular not to have an air conditioner. I know it is true that it was rather sizzling in my aunt’s house. However, I did not care a single little bit. She owned a box fan that we would regularly turn on when I arrived. There were also ceiling fans in some of the rooms where we slept. I was willing to do separate from the air conditioner in order to spend time with my beloved aunt. Nowadays, now that I am older, I don’t think I could survive separate from air conditioner anymore. However when I was a kid it genuinely didn’t matter. Whether you would have a window air conditioner, central air conditioner, or just ceiling fans plus open windows was not important to me. Aunt Mary was a appealing as a person, even though it was difficult to visit with her because of the air conditioner that wasn’t available. I loved her dearly. It’s a shame that people avoid other people just because they don’t have air conditioner or they don’t wear the right clothes or whatever they think..

How does Mary not have A/C?

I have very fond memories of going to see our Aunt Mary in the summers as a child.  Mary has been gone to her resting place for many years now. And, despite that fact, I truly still think about her often. You see, Aunt Mary in addition to I used to bake cookies together in addition to pick endless wildflowers from her giant backyard. However, the time I spent with Aunt Mary was so very wonderful, for the most part. Though, many of my siblings in addition to our mother did not love going to Aunt Mary’s cabin with me. The main reason they were not fond of going to see her was that there was no a/c in her house too cool.  While, since the two of us all live in the south, we know it is unusual not to have a/c.  Furthermore it’s true that it was rather moderate in our aunt’s house.  Really, I did not care a single little bit. She owned a box fan, that she would always turn on when I arrived for a visit. There were also ceiling fans in some of the rooms, too. I was willing to do without the air conditioning system in order to spend time with our beloved and aging Aunt. Nowadays, now that I am older, I don’t think I could survive without an a/c unit. But, when I was a kid, it particularly didn’t matter! Whether you had a window air conditioning system, central a/c, or just ceiling fans in addition to open windows was not important to me one bit. Aunt Mary was a wonderful lady, in addition to even though it was difficult to visit with her because the a/c just wasn’t readily available. I loved her dearly. It’s a shame that people avoid other people just because they don’t have a/c or they don’t wear the right clothes for whatever reason..

We want to go on the hunting trip

Every fall my father and I go on an annual hunting trip out in the wilderness for a week. It is not only a hunting trip but also a way for us to get together and have some bonding time with nobody else around. We have been going on these trips since I was old enough to fire a gun and we’ll keep going until one of us kicks the bucket. This last year we had to make a couple changes to appease my father’s aging body. Unfortunately we all lose the battle against father time but at least we can do some things to make the trip a bit more comfortable. We used to stay in a tent the entire time but this last year we decided to rent a cabin instead. We found a nice one online and the price was right so there you have it. It had a nice wood stove in it, furniture, and a full kitchen. We hit up the local general store in the closest town and picked up provisions for the week, then went to the cabin and fired up that wood stove as it was pretty chilly outside. I swear that stove was better than the furnace in my house! The place got sizzling hot and we actually had to adjust it a few times to mitigate the amount of heat it was putting off. If only I could get one of these for my home then I could throw out my entire HVAC system. I shot a deer that week.

The winter nights

I have to say, I’m a bit of a homebody. I work from home and I really love being able to decide whether or not I’m going to leave the house every day. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is far more extroverted and truly enjoys being out on the town. As such, we often compromise to make each other happy, trading nights in for nights out so that everyone feels happy and fulfilled. I have to say, though, that I’m excited for the onset of winter because it will definitely reduce the number of nights we spend out and about. As the air temperature drops, so do the number of fun social gatherings around our city. No one wants to go outside in the dark when it’s nearly freezing cold, so everyone tends to hunker down and spend their spare time indoors in the safety of their personal HVAC system instead. This is exactly what I’m looking forward to. Instead of dealing with the cold air and wind, we can stay in the safety of our living room and bask in the central heating. We can watch some tv shows and cuddle under a nice warm blanket until it’s time to crawl into our toasty bed. Best of all, we can light up a roaring fire in the fireplace and get extra cozy for the evening, saving ourselves tons of money on bar tabs and energy expenditure costs. I truly hate dealing with the cold outdoor air temperatures, but I’m really loving our warm, low key winter evenings.

We do know how to fix everything

Every so often I find myself being totally in awe of my husband. I mean, I know that he’s amazing all the time, but there are certain days that he really impresses me in a new way. He knows how to cook like a champion, can repair cars and electronics, and apparently knows how to remedy a wide assortment of household disasters. This was the case last week when he completely rescued us from freezing to death by repairing our furnace all by himself. You see, I was at home alone diligently working as usual, when I heard a huge crashing sound from the basement. I noticed that the furnace stopped working as the air temperature dropped drastically over the next hour, and realized that thermostat was not controlling the central heating unit appropriately. I called up my dear husband and told him I needed to call out the local HVAC company before I froze to death, but he begged me to hold off on making the call. He insisted he was able to take a look at the furnace before I paid for a professional to make a visit, and although I did not want to wait that long, I obliged to his request. When he arrived home that night I was ready and waiting, handing him a flashlight and the toolbox as I queued up the ventilation company phone number. I didn’t believe he could repair the furnace, but within half an hour he proved me wrong! Hot air was pumping through our air vents once again and I was more in love with my man than ever.
