This is a very big house

I had to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get cooling… I bought this great big old house that had a lot of the original woodwork in it, so most air conditioning companies wouldn’t work on it; they were concerned about ruining…

I’m loving the climate control

As far as life lessons go, I feel like I understand how most things work. Even so, there are still things that I will likely never understand. For instance, it seems the opposite sex will always elude my understanding! They simply operate on a different…

Woodcarving tools

At our house,my roommates and I have a small woodshed in the back where my roommates and I have all of our woodworking tools.  The shed is extremely old so the structure is unsound. The wood for the walls have spaces in between where weather…

HVAC inside the stadium

I enjoy when university pigskin starts back up each year.  It means that I get to return home & see friends & family that I haven’t seen in awhile. The best part is  I also get to go watch our alma mater play! I really…

This smells bad

I’m no dining expert – I’ve never worked at a diner, I’m not an acclaimed food critic, and I can’t call myself a master chef – however I’m pretty sure that your restaurant shouldn’t smell quite like garbage! I’m just saying, if you are looking…

Hauling tools

I used to suppose that Craigslist was an awesome tool for connecting with the community as well as identifying modern opportunities. I thought it had some level of respect and decency, but clearly I was terribly mistaken. In the past year, I’ve had nothing but…

I’m positive of the changes

Recently I’ve been hunting for a job, looking for a traditional position to make a little more currency… I’m not thrilled at the idea whatsoever, even though I could surely use the cash right now at home. I am not motivated at all! That’s why…

Increasing temperatures

On a hot day, I love ice cream, ice cream sodas, ice cream sundaes, plus frosties. I look forward to an iced coffee, ice tea, ice lemonade, plus frozen daiquiris, but I don’t love a frozen office! In our northern region, it seems that once…

This is no time to slack

Typically, I try to take a walk during my lunch break. I alternate between several neighboring towns to explore a variety of walking routes. Considering changes in the weather, wildlife, bikers, cars as well as repairmen, no two afternoon walks are ever the same. The…

I love the air conditioner

Traveling for work is honestly something that I have come to really dread. I used to like having a good, well paid excuse to get away from town for a few afternoons, however nowadays I get really  exhausted by our journeys. I only have to…

It’s fresh and bright

It did not take me long to choose that I never wanted to try to sell a condo again, after that last experience as a realtor.  The cost of sorting out this a single condo was so huge, that I had to list the condo…

I think I can figure this out

Just this weekend, we hit the ninety degree mark and we have not seen in that several weeks.  It was a one time happening, plus it honestly shouldn’t happen for another month or so even though everyone was in ecstasy.  Me, I hated it. I…

Why I like new HVAC

I have an extremely large, old ranch style house with lots of rooms, high ceilings, as well as floor to ceiling windows.  The house is hard to heat as well as cool, so it costs my me and my husband quite a bit in monthly…

I can’t believe the mess

I am pretty sure that many people can relate to my evening I spent last night.  I ended up doing something foolish that landed me in a bit of trouble. I am not talking about committing armed robbery or murdering someone, but more along the…

Communicating with friends

I don’t know what to do

My brother is one of those people who just seem to find trouble. The other night he got in a bar brawl over some girl and ended up in the tank overnight. I am pretty sure that many people, at one time or another gotten…

My nerves are crazy

This was all a huge mess

A few times a year a large group of my fraternity buddies get together to have dinner at our number one diner.  It is a little Japanese locale in downtown. We have been doing this for the last 4 years. They constantly accommodate us; we…

Discarding what we don’t need

When the grandparents decided to sell their family farm, they gave each of the family members first dibs. My aunts declined because they really were not fit enough for the difficult tasks that goes into running a dairy farm.  My brother decided that he was…

That was a very fun time

Why is it that Mondays are always the worst?  I remember once that I got a flat tire on a Monday and it cost nearly 2 hundred bucks to get repaired, and another time, my husband divorced me. And just last Monday, my air conditioner…

I have always been a planner

Buying and installing an energy efficient heating and a/c system for your house is an important step in outfitting a house. There are dozens of odd things you have to keep in mind; cost, install time, repairs, service, fuel, temperature, product quality, brand, etc. Some…

The days keep on passing by

My girlfriend gave me a truly astounding lecture when our heating and air conditioning equipment quit working and both of us discovered we would need to have it replaced. However, I have to admit, I was genuinely negligent with the heating and air conditioning system…

This became problematic

I can’t decide if the entire world is in on the pregnancy joke or if I am just the sensitive 1. Seriously, I am not loving this pregnancy journey… You are led to think that it is this amazing gift to be had, well, right…

I need a budget

Some people I spend time with and myself are actually very fortunate, because we easily live in a moderate climate. Our moderate climate means not having to ever worry about using the heating, ventilation, and A/C component. It also means the people I was with…

Realizing the heat pump works

I happen to be genuinely fortunate enough to have a moderate temperature in my climate. Heating plus my A/C idea is never a giant deal to me. I rarely worry about my heating plus A/C idea whatsoever. I also don’t genuinely waste any cash on…

Our summer plans

I am fortunate enough to live in a real moderate climate. That means that HVAC is not a big deal to me. Heating and cooling is rarely thought about. I don’t waste money on HVAC service, tune ups and repairs. The reason for this is…

That was a very loud sound

All of us easily spend some time with our neighbors, and we have asked them on multiple occasions how they can easily afford to keep their place of worship so cool during the summer months. When we run our heating and air conditioning plant during…

This is fine with me

Around the beginning of April, right up until the end of November, many area folks will need to use the cooling machine in their family compound. When the people I was with as well as myself first moved into this tepid area, both of us…

I can probably fix this

In the month of May, everyone of my friends will need to use the cooling component inside of their Lakefront cabin. When everyone of us absolutely decided to make the track to a new area, everyone of us did not anticipate having to use so…

Spring weather feels amazing

I honestly guess that honestly starting in May, some people will have to run the A/C. This is honestly something I realized when the two of us first moved to this area. I honestly thought the two of us would have a lower energy bill,…

Servicing the heater

I know that starting in April, all the way to October, people will be running their air conditioners.  This is something I didn’t realize when we first moved here though. I thought we could get away with lower our energy usage just by keeping our…

Furnace installation

Bob was never someone who wanted to own a house into his adulthood, because he watched his parents stress to no end over his childhood home. He never wants anything to own him the way his parents’ home owned them. They gave up a lot…

That happened too soon

I was so happy for my college graduation. I was the first of more than three sons to acquire a four-year degree, and get married – all in the same week. It was a lot to plan for. But as I sat in my graduation…

Sensing something eerie

The power has just clicked on

My girlfriend and I have known eachother since we were in high school. While I come from a modest family, his parents were rich! His father worked for the NFL for ages, plus I think he had some connections in high venues. That man took…

This is hard to deal with

My partner, Edith, and I have been married for two years.  For the most part, the two of us get along like peas in a pod.  We both rarely have any major arguments, and the two of us share a lot of the same interests.…

We don’t have any air vents

The range hood over my stove is useless.  We were getting ready to celebrate holidays, and I had put a pan of macaroni and cheese into the oven.  My daughter had been helping me all morning, and I had not really been paying attention to…

A weather forecast

My daughter loved to help me cook.  Usually, she did really good, but sometimes we would end up with some wild messes.  I was making macaroni and cheese one day. We had the cheese sauce made, and it was mixed up with the noodles in…

The lowest prices

During Thanksgiving, I was making a baked macaroni and cheese.  My daughter was helping me and when she was stirring the noodles, some of the butter and milk spilled into the oven.  I have a self cleaning oven, so I didn’t really worry about the…

Entertaining the houseguests

It looks like my brother will be staying with us for a bit while he gets back on his feet. I have to admit,  I really wasn’t looking forward to such a lengthy visit from him because he consistently complains about everything. The first thing…

We should try things again

Have you ever had an elderly guest in  your home for a month? I have, and let me tell you, it can be a challenge sometimes. I really wasn’t looking forward to such a lengthy visit, but, my Grandmother wanted to spend the time getting…

What is happening

A very basic service plan

Towards the end of my junior year of high college, I was struggling with my future. I wasn’t happy about the potential of going to college. My eldest brother and sister went off to ivy league universities, but that was never a direction that interested…

Situating things close

I moved to the northern area of the country from a tropical beach just last year. It sounds a little crazy, I know, but I was provided with an amazing work opportunity with a good firm that I just couldn’t turn down. I honestly thought…

Fixing the heating equipment

My neighbor Eric went to school to become a heating and a/c specialist. Just last year, he started finally working for a reputable local HVAC company based in our county. He truly enjoys doing heating and a/c work. That said, he has some crazy stories…

Heading out to work

When you’re a professional HVAC representative, you never quite know what you’re bound to run into when you get called out to work! One very hot summer afternoon, I got sent out to a residential town on the east side of town. Earlier in the…

A gift wrapped HVAC unit

I’ve honestly never had a fireplace in any of the houses that I’ve lived in. I’ve always wanted one, however, ever since I was a little boy. In fact, I always thought that it would be super cool to have an open flame inside my…

I do like the air moving around

I work for a local root beer shop that opened about a year ago now. However, from the first day it opened, I’ve noticed that the landlords don’t seem to focus on the experience had by customers in their shop, plus only recognize about the…
