Repairing heating and cooling equipment

I had a job interview a few days ago. It was a big interview. In fact, I had been preparing all for days and asking my friends to help me get ready because I was very nervous. I got into the interview and I blew it – I didn’t know what to say or how to act.  The interviewers know what was happening by the look on my face. To make matters worse, when I got home, I realized that my HVAC unit was not working. It was very warm in the house and I didn’t want to have to deal with this after my interview nightmare, but it was imperative that I fix my air conditioning.  I ended up having to call two different places because the first place was booked until next week and I couldn’t live in this sauna for more than 1 day let alone 1 week.  The second place however had just had a cancellation, so they were able to get me in that day.  The technician came and saw that my air filters were very dirty and needed replacement.  This was a simple and easy fix and he had an extra air filter in his car.  This was a good thing because it was almost closing time for the HVAC Company, meaning that I would be charged the after hours rate for any time over the scheduled work day.  However, this was not the case; he was able to fix my air conditioner in no time.  Now if he could also fix my interview skills, then we would be in the clear!

What I’m changing about my home

I met a brand new family today at the park in my neighborhood. I had taken my young boy there to ride his bike and he ended up meeting new friends. I also ended up befriending the parents. I invited them over for  snacks after they were done for the park. My son loves to have playdates with other children, and the children’s parents seemed to be  very nice people and we were having a fun time. The house was getting very warm though so we relocated to the outside deck, snacks and all. The HVAC unit however was placed right next to the deck. We could not even experience the food pleasantries of the outdoors because the HVAC unit was making some unpleasant noises. They said it sounded like I was having cooling problems, so they grabbed their son and went home, to ensure I could deal with the matter appropriately. They told me we may be able to get together soon at their house soon. I was so embarrassed that the house seemed like an unwelcoming place. I immediately called the HVAC technician after they left. I had never heard this sort of noise before. I definitely needed a professional to consult me on this issue since they would know more than anyone else. They looked at the system and found some big issues with it. We had to turn it off and he then proceeded to pull the whole thing apart. There were a lot of inner workings that were defective and causing the unit to slowly breakdown. I ended up paying lots of money for this repair. It was too bad that my friends felt like that they to leave because my HVAC unit was not operating properly.

Finding a hot tub that’s just right

Did you know the word spa comes from an acronym in Latin, “salus per aquam” which actually means health from water? Hot spas, or more commonly known as hot tubs, offer great relief and many benefits. It is more than just relaxing in a hot tub and soaking.

 

  1. These hot tubs are so scorching, when you soak in one your blood circulation increases. What this does is basically dilates your blood vessels, which often decreases your blood pressure. The truth is, this can happen in as little as twenty to twenty five units.
  2. Sitting in a hot spa reduces the pressure you might be putting on your body. Think of how you are straining your muscle mass all day while you are walking and positioned. Since 90 percent of your whole body weight is being supported inside the hot tub, your body can easily relax.
  3. If you are someone who has arthritis, using the hot tub can in fact restore strength and improve flexibility inside your joints.
  4. By spending time in a hot tub you will get the same simulating benefits as exercising, without the increase of blood pressure. Therefore, your aerobic health is going to improve.
  5. Soaking inside a hot spa could increase your quality of sleep through the night. If you soak in a hot spa 90 minutes before bed, your body will be triggered to decrease your internal body temperature. This allows a more deep and calming sleep.

 

Although at first it seems as though using a spa only has one relaxing advantage, regularly soaking in a hot spa may offer you some medical benefits too.

 

Designing a pool for workouts

I am a big time swimmer and love working out. I spend every day doing some type of physical fitness and watching my diet. No matter what I do for the rest of the day, I always start my morning off with a swim in my pool. In high school I was a star player on my school’s swim team. I specialized in the backstroke and also the freestyle races. I was a speed demon inside the water. It’s great because it’s always kept me in great shape. After high school I moved into a big city in a southern climate to start working for my uncle’s painting business. Meanwhile, I purchased my own first house and naturally, I needed a custom pool installed. In my opinion, the pool design was all about my swimming style. Sure, having friends and family over to enjoy the swimming pool is nice, but being able to design my very own specialized swimming pool was what I wanted. I designed the pool especially long, so i could do lap after lap each morning. The process was not that hard. I called the neighborhood custom pool business and had them come do an initial consultation. This involved examining my backyard and also the area where the specialized pool had to be installed. Next, we sat down and presented the first design, just to see what we were going to include with my custom pool. Lastly, the pool specialists arrived at my home and within weeks I had my very own custom pool. I would recommend hiring a new custom pool builder to anyone who is keen on owning a pool.custom swimming pool

Make sure you are caring for your HVAC unit

Have you ever felt like you were being attacked by a professor? I do not necessarily mean physically attacked. I mean that they seemed to despise you unfairly. You felt like they gave you grades that you worked harder for. I have had many teachers that way. Thankfully I was never in the situation though. I was always the teacher’s pet. Maybe it is because I have always wanted to be a teacher. There is one situation through which I thought I had been attacked. My HVAC technician has always been very kind to me. He has never attacked me about my HVAC difficulties. I know sometimes they could get annoyed when people do not have regular tune ups on the system. It is very common sense for them to feel angry. It is also very important and many people choose to neglect their HVAC unit. It can be frustrating for someone who sees people that do not care about their residence. I use to be one of those people. I simply did not recognize how crucial tune up appointments genuinely were. I was never given any information regarding it. I thought I would avoid it since it would mean more business with the company and therefore, more money. Tune ups happen twice for every 12 months. They are usually in the spring and the fall. An HVAC technician comes to to clean out the system along with replacing the defective parts. Sometimes if the system sits for too long it could become broken from the built up dust. If you want a good lasting system, I strongly recommend making tune ups appointments.

Saving on your energy bills

Lately there has been a cold going around. I tried extremely hard to not catch the cold. I washed my hands all day long and used sanitizer. Being around people every single day at work made it difficult to stay clear of the sickness. I really thought I was going to avoid it and be able make it through without catching the cold. It turned out I got the cold. It took over my whole body and I felt terrible. Everything was a lot harder to do. I called off of work many times. In the midst of winter my furnace decided to quit working. It was so hard to get to the phone to call a person to come repair it. I put it off for awhile because I really could not build up the vitality to get out of my bed. I do not live with someone, so they could not take care of the heating issue either. I finally was able to call an HVAC business. It worked out well because I did not need to do much in the process of the repair. All I had to do was call the organization. I knew I was going to be home because I had been really sick. I was able to allow the HVAC technician into my house. He looked at the HVAC unit and checked for what may be wrong. I wasn’t even sure that there was something wrong because all the sudden the HVAC unit just got colder. It was strange. He confirmed that the HVAC system was broken. He fixed what he had to and he was on his way to his next appointment. It seemed like such an easy task to take care of. I just had to call. The HVAC technician will always handle any of your HVAC needs. You should never have to do anything but make the call.

Finding a quality furnace

I live in the northern parts of the United States. We have quick, hot, and humid summers, in addition to long, terribly cold winters. We get endless amounts of snow during the wintertime. Our focus is the actual heating season. We spend almost all of the year fighting off the cool. It is extremely important that our residential heating system operate reliably and efficiently. The cost of maintaining some sort of warm and comfortable home is incredibly high. Even a small amount of wasted energy could lead to a huge expense. There is never an enjoyable time for the heating system to fail. During the winter, it is necessary to keep the house shut up as tight as it can be. We cannot open a window to allow for fresh air inside. Outside temperature ranges fall well-below freezing. This means that the same air is trapped in the home for months. To ensure healthy quality of air, the heating system needs to produce proper filtration and ventilation. It is vital that equipment operate safely, and prevent carbon monoxide from entering this airstream because it could be toxic. We heat our home which has a gas furnace. We have recently updated into a modern, more efficient system. After about ten years, a heating unit often becomes less and less efficient. It costs more to control, and can even have more frequent repair needs. Since replacing our outdated furnace, we have noticed an important reduction in our monthly utility bills. The system is protected by a simple warranty, but we have seasoned no problems. Because the system makes use of adaptable-speed technology, it runs extended, at lower capacity, and is very quiet. Our house is more at ease.

Handling odors with your air conditioner

My hubby and two sons went on a fishing charter. The charter left very early that day, and they spent all day on the water then. To our surprise, they came home with a cooler full of fish for the family. Those particular fish were all cut into steaks and fillets, and grouped together into sealed bags. We put all of the bags in freezer. Today, I decided to cook some fish on our barbecue grill in the backyard. I started thawing the fish that day. I soaked it for hours in a tasty lemon pepper marinade. Just from handling it, my hands smelled terrible. I washed them multiple times, and could still smell bass on my skin. Because I was just a little worried about a bad fishy tastes, I decided to cook our fish longer than usual. The smell of it cooking was not pleasant by any means. Although I grilled it outside, the house smelled very fishy. Considering I could not get the odor away from my skin, I was concerned that the house would reek for days just like my hands. I closed all of the windows, and turned on the air conditioner in our home. The air conditioner started circulating air, which immediately helped with the awful smell. As the cooling system extracted humidity through the air, it also reduced the cooking odors that were produced. The house felt a lot more pleasant with the lower temperature. We enjoyed a very nice dinner, in the air conditioned house. I lit a candle to add a more pleasing fragrance to the air. The fish tasted excellent. I decided to let the air conditioner run for another night.

A/C problems

My only son has recently started to have a great interest in baseball. I tend to not mind this at all. I really like seeing him be active and have fun at the same time. He’s even very cute in the baseball outfit. He practices frequently. He will practice with his dad or his brothers. He’ll even play with his friends if they come over. Some of his friends were over just the other day. They were playing outside and I was standing on the deck watching. In a short time when I had gone inside to acquire them snacks, the house was quite warm. I couldn’t understand how warm it had become. I felt like I ended up sweating so much. I went to look at the thermostat. It was set to a temperature, but the house had been much warmer than that. I made sure the thermostat said the HVAC system was running. It was definitely fired up. I went to look at the HVAC system because sometimes the filters get clogged. The filters looked like they were fine. I did not notice anything concerning. I had to call an HVAC business, so they could send the HVAC technician to come consider the unit. He arrived as soon as the phone call had ended. I was lucky he was so quick to my house. He found that a lot of the parts inside of the model had stopped working. One of the motors had quit. It had gotten just a little old and couldn’t work today or ever again. He pulled many things aside, but was finished within an hour. I was still able to make the boys some snacks while I was sweating the entire time.
