The first few guests have arrived

When you’re planning a major birthday party for your partner’s 40th birthday, the last thing that you want to have happen is for something to go completely wrong with your plumbing! Unluckily, that is precisely what happened to me not too long ago when I…

Cleaning all the pipes

You know, there are times when I believe plumbers get a bad name. Probably most of the time when you think about a plumber, you pretty much think of some random sloppy guy by the name of Joe who has extremely trouble keeping his pants…

We have clean pipes

My husband as well as I are up to our knees in the middle of a beach dwelling renovation project as well as it is driving us mad… Everything in our dwelling seems to be torn to pieces right now, as well as there is…

I am so cold right now

Yes! It’s vacation time again! That doesn’t mean I’m loading up the family and hopping aboard a plane for an exotic getaway or anything like that! I’m just excited that we’ll be staying at our in-law’s condo without them being at home this weekend! What’s…

What is up with this heater?

The unit will pay for itself

In the section where I stay, the Winter season season is especially long and brutally cold.  I usually rely on the heating plan from mid November until sometime in April. For quite a few months, I strictly utilized a gas gas furnace for temperature control.…

Taking our jacket off

I have to pick the right option

Fighting over the system

I enjoy taking baths–occasionally they are the best section of our day! I am a bit of a workaholic, and will often get sucked into task for hours on end separate from taking a break, but this is especially respected on deadline nights, where I’m…

Fixing the furnace

My family and I predict a Winter most foul this year. That isn’t anything unusual for our area of the country. We’re so far up north, see, that our Summers are only about a month long at most. So it is an absolute must that…

It’s warm and cool

Losing my uncle Leo was a truly awful ordeal. He was this Heating & A/C specialist, & he was easily the best at what he did. He even took me along with him sometimes when he was repairing Heating & A/C systems, and that’s when…

I am learning so much

My niece Jessica is getting ready to graduate from high school, and I’m so excited for her. I asked if she was planning to leave for school in the Fall, but instead she decided to take a year off of school to complete a course…

We hate those sounds

I can’t stand how the bathroom connected to the master bedroom of my home is always so cold! Is it because of the location of the room? I know it’s always in the shade of the trees outside. Maybe it’s because the builders forgot to…

The difference in my comfort

I got a beautiful, new car as my graduation gift. Imagine my joy when my parents showed me this generous gift! The car was brand new and had some amazing features! My favourite feature on the car was the furnace. The powerful heating and heated…

These repairs are very hard

Many of my family members worried about me, mainly because I lack a lot of necessary social skills to have close friends. It’s not that I haven’t tried on many different occasions, but it always seems like I don’t know what to say in addition…

I really did enjoy this

All of the time, the people I spend the most amount of time with and a bunch of my friends absolutely try to win the lottery. It’s been a genuine try of hours for at least 10 years, because we absolutely could live much better…

The airplane is something else

Constantly, I keep traveling around the country and around the world.  I love taking trips in addition to taking some time away from work. Even domestic flights are exciting for me.  My favourite part of taking these trips is take off. The excitement I feel…

I love the heater

I love these small pets

That is so aggravating

I want new AC

When I say that I am a hermit, it is not something I sheepishly admit, it is a statement I make with pride. I don’t have any close friends, and even though I am polite and friendly with my co-workers I never have any interest…

The cooling bills are climbing

I am going to make friends

The old farmhouse

I’m bundled up tight

There has to be a way to mount an air conditioning on my bicycle. I love going for bike rides, even taking it in to work, college and to visit friends. It’s also what I mainly do for fun, as a workout or just to…

I’m not looking forward to that

I recently did some updates and remodeling on my newly purchased home.  I emptied the entire downstairs, chopping down the walls, like a lumberjack, to the bare studs.  TI realized that this was the perfect opportunity to access the plumbing, electrical wires and HVAC system.…

It’s seventy degrees in here

These floors are heated

High temperature

My husband Jack and I can’t decide on what new stuff to get. Jack and I have saved some money and both of us wanted to get different things with it. Jack has desperately wanted A/C for a while now. He tends to get hot…

Writing to the professional

I keep my life organized by writing everything in a planner. I’ll write appointments that range from when working out all the way to getting groceries. Even with the smallest things I need to do, I have it written in the planner. My favorite part…

Allergies and the air quality

Everytime I hug the cat after a long day at work, I can’t help but remember how blessed I am that I don’t have any sensitivities to pollen or other possible irritants. Growing up as a kid, Mom was allergic to everything! She was deathly…

Five days straight

I make a lot of investments

I have a desire

The ducts are too small

This is a big deal

We’re fine with this air conditioner

                                            I paid a lot of extra money to be at a gym that also has a swimming pool. You see, I love swimming for exercise. I get to paddle around, be perfectly cool, I never sweat, and I actual love doing it too. It…

The heater is taken care of

                                            I leave for vacation in exactly 3 days and I am freaking out. I have several things that I need to do as I prepare. I need to get biking gear for the vacation, get a new pair of swim suits, and then I…

That system needs a new filter

                                            There is nothing uglier than an exposed air duct. My hubby Greg and I recently purchased a little beach home. We wanted a winter season residence in a location that was warmer. We also wanted to be mere steps from the beach. Also, Greg…

I need some water

After work on Fridays, a group of us from the workplace all like to hit up the same watering hole to let loose & exercise some of those demons that gathered over the week. I have been working at the same Heating & Air Conditioning…

Fixing the heater

Growing up I actually learned plenty about operating a business from my father. He was a stonemason plus made a decent living at it. He taught myself and others that when it comes to business you will have to take some massive hits when you…

That is the last straw

We invested so much

Getting the help we needed

Not many of years ago, my partner Steve and I purchased a very old house in a historical part of the city.  Since the house is nearly one hundred years old, there are hardwood floors, ridiculously high ceilings, unique moldings and wide windows.  There is…

This is costing a fortune

I currently have a forced air furnace and central cooling system installed in my home, and I’m not happy with it.  The furnace is only a few old and we’ve only had the A/C for a little over four years. Although both components are pretty…

Humidity issues
