The summer weather is hot

Tonight we worked at an outdoor festival, volunteering for our church. We talked to people, gave out t-shirts and candy, and painted faces on all of the kids who would let us! It was a really fun event, especially since I love face painting. I’m pretty good at it, and I got to do a zebra, a panda bear, lots of kitty cats, and several zombies. My artwork was walking all around the festival this evening, so that was pretty cool to see. That was the only cool thing about this evening, though. The temperature here today was unseasonably high, and even after the sun went down tonight, it was still ridiculously hot outside. I was sweating like crazy under our tent, and I can’t believe that all of the kids didn’t sweat their face paint right off in the blazing sun! I really started to wish that we had decided to take the space inside that we were offered at the beginning of the festival. We originally thought that we wouldn’t really need air conditioning, but we weren’t planning on the temperature being so high today. And unfortunately, you can’t adjust the thermostat when you’re outside! I was really wishing for some nice cool A/C along about 7:00 tonight, when the sweat was just rolling down my back and the setting sun felt like a furnace on my skin. Volunteering is always a good thing, but the next time I volunteer, I’m going to make sure that it’s in an air conditioned building that’s nice and cool. Either that or I’m buying a portable A/C unit just to be on the safe side.

We are learning so much more

Last summer we had lots of flash flooding in our area. For almost three days, we had non-stop rain and some of the roads in the county were completely underwater. I couldn’t believe the huge amount of water that fell from the sky in such a short amount of time! It was ridiculous and our whole was under a flash flood watch for days and days. We stayed home the whole time this was going on, and at least we didn’t lose power like some of the people in our area. It’s a good thing that we didn’t lose power, too, because if our basement sump pump had not been working then our basement would’ve filled up with water like a fishbowl! As it was, the basement ended up being flooded with about three inches of water. Unfortunately, it flooded our central air conditioning unit and our gas furnace which is located in the furnace room down in the basement. I freaked out when I saw the water lapping around the base of the A/C and the heating units, because all I could see was dollar signs! I knew it would cost a fortune to get the HVAC maintenance and repair guys to come out and fix our furnace and our air conditioner. After the water finally receded and we got the basement cleaned out, we had an HVAC tech come out to survey the damage. Luckily for us, there was just some minor water damage to the central air conditioning unit and nothing at all was wrong with the gas furnace! I couldn’t believe that they were still in working order after being in all of that water!

I couldn’t be happier

If you ask me, it’s regularly a wonderful idea to keep a spare undefined around any house. I regularly keep a portable undefined in my attic in case I run into unexpected problems with my Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C unit, as well as it’s a system that has served myself and others well over the years. There have been a number of times when I had my undefined supply out on me, as well as the portable undefined is what allowed myself and others to sleep in my room comfortably. It usually takes a couple of afternoons to schedule an Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C repair, as well as that’s why this is important. Without a back-up way to keep cool, I’d have to suffer through the heat in my own house! Portable cooling systems are relatively infancy, as well as they make a big difference in situations love these. I never worry about Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C problems when summertime comes because I suppose that even in a extreme situation I have a plan, as well as that’s what makes purchasing 1 of these a good investment. On top of that, I am able to make use of the portable undefined in other situations as well. For instance, I occasionally have people come as well as stay in my guest room in the backyard. It’s a small space, as well as I regularly transfer the undefined out there when someone is using it so that it feels more comfortable for them; Portable undefined just come in handy all of the time. I’m so ecstatic that I have 1 on hand! I’ll regularly keep 1 around from now on because I suppose what a difference 1 can make.

Getting down to business

Indoor air quality is a critical need for all of us, but especially our children. Poor indoor air quality can cause an infant to become ill more often due to airborne illnesses or allergens spreading throughout a home. Additionally, poor indoor air quality is a direct contributor to a house becoming more dirty and dusty at a faster rate. To address air quality inside a home or business, I’ve learned that the first place to look is the air filter. Used to ensure the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems aren’t circulating debris, the air filter is arguably one of the most important parts of the HVAC system – and the cheapest to replace! Generally, when someone is dealing with their air quality gradually getting worse, the cause is often found in a dirty air filter that needs to be replaced. However, if you live in an area that has a lot of trees and vegetation, the incredible amounts of pollen and other allergens can’t be helped with a conventional air filter. This is when a media air filter would come into play, as the media air filter is much thicker and designed to catch far more particulates circulated into the house. I can say with certainty that a media air filter was a wise choice for me when I had issues indoor air quality at my home. Other than an improved air filter for the HVAC system, it also helps immensely to have a certified heating, ventilation and air conditioning technician clean out the ductwork of the entire house. The task can be accomplished by the homeowner, sure – but the technician will have necessary tools to ensure the ductwork has been effectively cleaned out. Ever since I had a media air filter installed and a thorough cleaning of my ductwork, my home’s air quality has skyrocketed! Plus, the air conditioner can cool down the house at a faster rate now with the absence of dirt and dust restricting airflow.

I’m glad the air conditioner is working

If you ask me, it’s constantly a wonderful plan to keep a spare air conditioner around any house. I constantly keep a portable air conditioner in my attic in case I run into unexpected problems with my Heating and Air Conditioning unit, as well as it’s a plan that has served me well over the years. There have been a number of times when I had my air conditioner provide out on me, as well as the portable air conditioner is what allowed me to sleep in my room comfortably. It usually takes a couple of afternoons to schedule an Heating and Air Conditioning repair, as well as that’s why this is pressing. Without a back-up way to keep cool, I’d have to suffer through the heat in my own house! Portable cooling systems are relatively overpriced, as well as they make a immense difference in situations love these. I never worry about Heating and Air Conditioning problems when Summer comes because I know that even in a serious situation I have a plan, as well as that’s what makes purchasing a single of these a wonderful investment. On top of that, I am able to make use of the portable air conditioner in other situations as well. For instance, I occasionally have people come as well as stay in my guest room in the backyard. It’s a small space, as well as I constantly transfer the air conditioner out there when someone is using it so that it feels more comfortable for them, then portable air conditioners just come in handy all of the time. I’m so blissful that I have a single on hand! I’ll constantly keep a single around from now on because I know what a difference a single can make.

The furnace is great

When I graduated from high school, I decided it would be best to take a short break and rack up some work experience before I go and get absorbed into college. I had no idea what I wanted to select as a major, so it made more sense to join the workforce and develop skills. That’s why I decided to work in a warehouse – the job itself seemed simple enough, but there was plenty to learn. This particular warehouse stored automotive parts, which apparently don’t need to be kept at any set temperature to keep their integrity. I know this, because I’ve never worked in a place that was hotter inside than it was outside! Every day, I had to bring at least a gallon of ice water into the warehouse with me. The only area of the warehouse that had any form of heating and air conditioning was the break room, which was colder than a winter morning! I didn’t understand the logic expressed by whoever designed the ductwork for this warehouse, because it seemed ridiculous to keep a single small room so frigid while the rest of the warehouse isn’t treated. I asked one of the older coworkers who’d been in the warehouse for some time, and they said it was intentional. “Keeping the break room ice-cold gives us somewhere to cool off on a hot day!” I didn’t understand, really. It seemed like the smarter choice would be to have ductwork that extends through the entire warehouse, but I wasn’t going to sound off as the new guy fresh out of high school. Oh well – I guess one room guaranteed to be cool is better than no rooms that are cooled! They must’ve had an incredibly powerful air conditioner too, to drop the temperature in that room so low!

A furnace is entirely the worst heating method you can have, and first, the furnace has 1 of the shortest lifespans. If you are entirely on it, the furnace will live about 15 years, that is all you can get out of the furnace, a lousy fifteen years out of it, but second, the furnace is super dirty. The oil furnace sucks in air, churns away and forces it back out of the vents. If you have a pet, the dander is getting sucked up. If you are not on it with air filter changes, the dust will get into the method and pollute your indoor air quality, however what is doubly fun is that a dirty air filter could cause the whole oil furnace to die, and an air filter that costs a few bucks could cause your truly overpriced oil furnace to totally break. This leads into the next problem with the furnace. The heat exchanger could split on the furnace if it overheats.

          The heat exchanger costs as much as the whole furnace. Also, the heat exchanger when cracked, releases carbon monoxide into the home. This is an odorless, tasteless and truly white gas. It can poison you without you even realizing it; Yes, this bad heating method can potentially kill you if it gets a little too hot. A microscopic crack can cause your whole family to be hospitalized, last, the furnace requires so much work, then basically every season the oil furnace needs to be looked it. It needs cleaning, oiling and tightening of parts all of the time. Expect frequent heating maintenance that costs a fortune.

Getting a new heater

   I’ve always liked to recycle. There is so much trash plus debris building up on this earth, plus we are going to run out of landfill space. When our neighborhood started to collect for recycling, my hubby plus I went out plus bought several recycling containers. We have a bin for aluminum, a bin for paper, plus another bin for glass. We try to recycle everything that has a red triangle.

                 My hubby bought a new furnace for our condo a few weeks ago, for our ancient furnace was almost 12 years old, plus the local heating supply store was having a special on new heaters. My hubby has been an electrician for 20 years, plus he had no problem hooking up the new heater. We decided to put the old pieces of metal furnace into our recycling bins. When I returned from work, I was surprised to see the furnace pieces still sitting in our driveway… I thought it was a mistake, so I put the metal furnace pieces in the recycling bin again. The recycling company still didn’t pick up the pieces of the old heater

              . My hubby decided to contact the recycling company, plus ask if there was a problem. The recycling company told us that we would need to take the metal pieces to another recycling place! Apparently, there is a special recycling building that deals with Heating & Air Conditioning pieces plus parts. That recycling building is only 5 miles from our house, so we loaded the ancient pieces of furnace into the truck plus took them over to the recycler.

Had to buy new HVAC for the house

    Last week, I had to buy a new Heating plus Air Conditioning component for our house! I knew the time was coming, because the a/c wasn’t working well, and our Heating plus Air Conditioning component was already over 10 years old, and past its warranty time. When I found out that the Heating plus Air Conditioning component needed to be upgraded, I was absolutely glad. I was looking forward to a new Heating plus Air Conditioning component that would correctly heat and cool our home.

              When I bought the 3-home office home a few weeks ago, I knew the Heating plus Air Conditioning component needed to be updated. I was hoping the a/c would last throughout this summer, so I would have some time to save up for a new one. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I contacted our local Heating plus Air Conditioning provider last week, and they came out to perform a thorough investigation on our a/c. I found out that it was time to upgrade. The Heating plus Air Conditioning business worker was really helpful and friendly… She contacted the owner of the business, and they helped us set up financing for the new unit.

              It’s been a month since the new Heating plus Air Conditioning component was installed, and it’s been great. The a/c works really well, and the days are dreadfully cold. A few afternoons ago, I had to wear a sweatshirt while making supper. The new a/c works so much better than our aged one, and I can even keep the control component set a little bit higher. Even though I was hoping to wait until next year to replace the Heating plus Air Conditioning unit, I am really happy about the new system and its features.
