I inherited this house

I had been to the old house numerous times when our uncle was alive but had no actual system that she would leave it to me when she died.  After I  acquired the keys, I went down myself to check on the locale and see if there were things that immediately needed to be changed.  It was a cool fall day whenever I arrived and the first thing I noticed was that the very old forced air gas furnace was not working at all.  The locale had been vacant for a couple years but since no 1 had any particular idea that the gas furnace was not working it was left alone.  I instantaneously called the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier in town that I have used for years and they right came out the next day to check out the heating unit.  It was only a small gas furnace as the house was small, however my dear old uncle had only used the house during the summertime months around here but I wanted to try to use it year round as a nice getaway locale from the large city.  The HVAC repair woman spent a few hours checking out the whole unit as I waited patiently in the residing room alone.  She finally came over and told myself and others that the whole thermocouple need to be changed but the unit was in superb working order besides that otherwise.  She had the component we needed in her truck and within 45 minutes I could suppose the heat coming from the air vents again.  It was not a superb cost for this repair and I was totally delighted to not have any large expenses to keep the new locale nice and warm, and i can now spend any particular weekend I care about down at our house and be comfortable.

I hastily called up a few Heating, Ventilation and A/C companies, however no 1 could truly get to us in this nightmare storm since they were truly backed up with true calls. I was truly starting to panic, plus then truly abruptly, out of the blue our sibling called me up. He just had truly got back into neighborhood from a nice true, little trip with his family.

My brother is coming to the rescue

Just the other week, my wife and I faced a terrible situation. It was the midst of winter, and we were in a terrible snow storm. We noticed that the HVAC system was beginning to struggle to keep up with the temperature control setting. After awhile, the HVAC system entirely died on us altogether. Here we were stuck in the midst of this horrible snow storm without any sort of heating! I quickly called up a few HVAC companies, but no one could get to us in this nightmare storm since they were entirely backed up with calls. I was really starting to panic, and then suddenly, out of the blue my brother called me up. He just had got back into town from a nice little vacation with his family. I couldn’t believe he was calling me in the middle of this horrible snow storm. My brother happened to be a very skilled HVAC technician. I probably would have called him if I didn’t think he was on vacation with his family. I immediately told him what was going on and he came over quickly. He was over at our house within 30 minutes. We were all happy to see each other, but he wanted to get right to work. He looked over our HVAC system carefully and was able to discover the problem very quickly. It wasn’t even an hour later when he said to turn on the furnace. It fired right up and we were back in business! I must say that I sure was grateful to have such a wonderful brother!

Adjusting the thermostat from bed

I hate to admit it, but I’m definitely losing my grit as I age. When I was younger I was so self-assured and tough. My will power was outstanding, and I genuinely could get through anything if I put my mind to it. However, as I’ve grown older, my tolerance for discomfort has truly waned to a startling degree. These days I am incapable of enduring any number of inconveniences, and definitely have a striking weakness for cold conditions. While I was happy to run around outside in the dead of winter as a child, even working at a horse barn and voluntarily spending the dark evenings trudging through snow filled fields, I now refuse to even leave the house during the winter unless it’s completely necessary to go out. I would much rather stay inside, in the comfort and safety of my modern HVAC unit than face the brutal chilly air outside. Another great example of my inability to endure cold air temperatures is the recent development of my new morning routine, during which I turn up the heater from the warmth of my bed. I can use our smart thermostat to my advantage, bumping up the temperature settings to a balmy 70 degrees well before I crawl out from under my blankets. A younger version of myself would certainly chide this behavior, poking fun at how delicate and sensitive to the cold I am. I know I should be ashamed, but frankly, I’m too warm and comfortable with my modern central heating system to give it enough thought.

We’re doing what is needed

This morning, the news reported of a hotel fire in the historic downtown district.  The hotel had been evacuated on Tuesday morning because of a faulty heating component in the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit.  The faulty HVAC equipment was located on the fourth floor of the hotel and it affected a small suite.  The unit had malfunctioned and it had poured smoke into the hotel room.  The fire company had been called to the hotel to clear out the smoke and officials were currently carrying out an inspection of the faulty heating unit.  The situation was quickly gotten under control and the guests were once again back in their rooms.  The only suite that remained empty was the suite that had the heating unit that started the emergency.  I read these headlines in the paper the next morning.  I am a part of the hotel management.  We are part of a major hotel chain, and I need to send our own investigators out to inspect every HVAC unit in the hotel.   I have a special HVAC crew, that are fully certified in all HVAC technology, and they will be in charge of the HVAC inspections.   Our heating and air conditioning specialists will have to work with the guests.  They need to accommodate all guests, and look out for their safety.   The inspections will begin the following day, and they need to make sure this does not happen again.  Just the idea that this happened makes it a priority to inspect all HVAC units to ensure this does not happen again.  Only after every HVAC unit is inspected and tagged will it be deemed okay to be put into service..

Reading the news

I was drinking my coffee when I heard the news talking about a major fire at a local hotel.  The hotel had been evacuated due to a huge amount of smoke that came from a faulty HVAC component, in one of the room units.  The HVAC unit was on the sixth floor of the hotel in one of the suites.  The malfunctioning HVAC unit was spewing smoke that was going out into the hallways.  The fire crew was clearing the smoke, and fire officials were already onsite, inspecting the HVAC unit.  All of the guests were allowed back into their room, but the suite with the faulty HVAC unit was closed for further investigation.  I am the Facilities Manager for that hotel, and now I have to go to work.  I will be putting my own crew of HVAC specialists into the hotel, which is part of a major hotel chain. and they will be inspecting all of the HVAC units on that site, and possibly on all sites.  We can’t risk this happening in another area, so every HVAC unit in the hotel will be thoroughly inspected by the HVAC crew.  My crew is formed of several licensed HVAC professionals that know everything about modern HVAC technology. We will have to let the guests know that it could be an inconvenience to them, but it is for their safety, and that the HVAC crew will need to be allowed entrance to every room.  Once all HVAC units are properly inspected, tagged and documented as being safe to use, the hotel will again run as before.

A faulty heating unit

I picked up a magazine in my dentist’s office, and I began to read an article about the HVAC system.  It had a long list of questions that would help you determine if your HVAC system needed to be serviced, or if it was almost ready to be replaced.  I sat there and answered many of the questions, and I was surprised when I realized that I could possibly have some serious problems with my HVAC.  I know my grandfather would be proud to know that he took such good care of the furnace that it has lasted for almost forty years.  He was known to be very diligent with having the HVAC company come in and do maintenance a couple of times a year.   If I were to put any credence in that article and to answer the questions truthfully, I would know that my furnace was on its last leg.  The noises that I have been hearing are getting louder and they are almost spooky sounding, like it is screaming.  My grandfather had put this furnace into the house, and it was used when he bought it.  I guess it has a reason to protest its final demise.   I can still remember how it would moan and groan when we were kids, and I often wondered if it were in pain.  I guess it really does have a reason to moan after almost four decades of use.  I guess this proved that if you do the proper amount of maintenance and care to the furnace or heater, it will run smoothly for a very long time.

We are looking forward to our workout

I have been wanting to get back into working out consistently. My apartment complex offers a free gym along with my lease, but this is not a good solution. The gym at my apartment complex is extremely small. There is only one weight machine, a few treadmills, an elliptical, and some sort of arm workout machine. The gym is not often crowded, and there is a good reason why. The ventilation and temperature control is terrible. I think that the gym’s thermostat is connected to the apartment complex office, and they do not want to be too cold in the office, or waste air conditioning, so they do not use the proper temperature control for the gym. Unfortunately, this means working out in this gym is a miserable experience. Imagine trying to run on the treadmill and being unable to feel any cool air from the air conditioning or being unable to breathe any fresh air. As you can imagine, I can only handle being in that gym for a short time. After attempting, and failing, to get the apartment management to change the thermostat settings, I finally signed up for a new gym. It is on my way home, and very convenient. It is very large, and best of all, it has proper air conditioning and ventilation. Now, I can workout without fear of overheating. Being comfortable while working out is very important to me, and now, I can actually focus on bettering myself and my health, rather than worrying about air conditioning and ventilation! My workouts are so much more profitable now!

The gymnasium needs some work

The first home I lived in was a very sad place. It was in a rough area of town. My roommate and I would constantly hear gunshots and police sirens, and the townhome always smelled a little odd. We stayed for almost a year, but when our electricity, water heater, and air conditioning all malfunctioned in the same month, we gave up and moved. Being without hot water and air conditioning was rough. I lived in the loft bedroom upstairs, and the heat from uncirculated summer air was so bad that I was unable to sleep at night! A cold shower felt good, but soon, I would be hot again. We called our landlord, but he took forever to send someone to look at the air conditioning unit. When an HVAC specialist did come, he replaced the thermostat, then left. The HVAC still did not work, so we called our landlord again. He seemed very frustrated with us, but did send out another HVAC specialist. This HVAC specialist told us that the air conditioning unit needed to be replaced. We were excited to finally get a good air conditioning unit! Instead, our landlord started to complain and get disgruntled. He started trying to say that he would call someone to repair the A/C unit, and that it was possible that we had messed it up on purpose. My roommate and I were so angry. We only had one month left on our lease, so we broke the lease and left. We found another place to stay at a decent price. This new home has much better air conditioning and heating, and we have not had any trouble with the electricity and water heater either.
