Every so often I like to visit my brother in the big city. This is a breathtaking drive and I adore driving more than most people, but it is typically a bad idea to have a car in the city when it is not completely necessary. Then you only end up having to be worried about traffic, parking, and in your worst case scenario, a break-in. The latter actually happened to me the most recent time I took my car to the city. It was parked overnight and somebody smashed the side window for my middle console change. So now I always taking a bus into the city and it is usually fine, but last time was a climate control wreck. About one hour into the ride, the air conditioning stopped being cold. First it went lukewarm, then it got just warm, then abruptly it felt like the heating was turned on. I noticed a variety of the other passengers getting uncomfortably hot too. Air condition was really necessary because it was the middle of summer, so I figured something had to be wrong. The air quality quickly became unbearable and it also seemed like the driver had been oblivious. Then people started yelling “turn the A/C back on man! ” The driver pulled off at the next rest stop, but I figured it was unlikely he could fix the air conditioning immediately. I suggested maybe the refrigerant must be replenished, but even if that was the case, there was nothing we could do. We to got to the last stop about three hours away, without air conditioning.
Now it’s winter time in the place I call home, I have my heating system within my home on full blast always. To support the heating system, I will occasionally run a small portable heater in the room i am in. The portable heater lets me keep the gas heater at a lower temperature to save some much needed money. I have been doing this for too many years and it works out well for me personally. Most of my home is unusually carpeted (even the bathroom!), which isn’t as appealing as hardwood flooring but I’m sure it keeps the home more temperate and comfortable. Of course, someday I would like to purchase something called radiant flooring, but my budget does not want me to do that at the moment. When the weather is incredibly chilly, like tonight, I typically bundle up with layers of warm clothing, fuzzy socks and slippers. But somehow I’ve misplaced my slippers, leaving my toes without them. I was busy focusing on my broken table when I got up to fix myself a stiff drink. I shuffled my feet all the way to the kitchen and when I grabbed the handle on my cabinet, I shocked myself. That was not the only time I’ve shocked my hand today. At times like these, I know that I should turn my humidifier on to produce some much needed moisture in my home. I really should get in a habit of always running my humidifier through the winter season, but I have not told myself to do this consistently yet. I really hate when I shock myself though, so I desire to remember to keep the humidifier full of delectable water so I can transform the static filled room on at a moment’s detection.
Within the last few weeks there have been many constituents covering gun control laws. Everywhere I end up going there is some sort of discussion in relation to gun control. I suppose calling it a discussion is better way of putting it. People usually get into arguments over this to make a difference. It is going to be a major talking point when it comes to the next presidential election. I am sick of everyone wanting to hear about shootings that are going on just about every week in our nation, but I also do not know where I stand on the gun control laws. It is a very touchy area which should be looked at from numerous perspectives that is certainly why it is so challenging. While gun control is dominating the news lately, I am enjoying a different kind of control concerning the HVAC equipment in my home. That’s right. I had a brand new system installed a few months ago that has something called zone control. Why is this so amazing you ask? Well, I can now have many different temperatures in many different rooms. This allows all of my loved ones to be comfortable simultaneously. It also really helps me save a ton of money each billing cycle. We are no longer requiring our heating equipment to regulate the entire house and even unoccupied rooms much like the second office. That was such a waste! Now our heater and air conditioner can work on treating the areas we tend to use the most like the game room and sleeping rooms. So far, this system has lived up to the excitement and I can’t be more pleased.
I have had the same close friend now for over 9 years. We met as freshmen in college and hit it off just about right away. We were in love with the same kind of music, had a similar love of life, but most importantly, we loved having conversations for hours. There was so much to share with Pete. I also learned a lot. One thing that my personal buddy really got me into was avoiding frivolous things inside life. He showed me that the simpler life would almost always be a better life. With this ideology I never had air conditioning inside these various homes I have lived in, except once, but I never used it when I lived there. A/C if you ask me, was a lot like turning on the lights when it is overcast, helpful but unnecessary. Air quality was always on my radar though so i always kept my windows open and picked up a simple air cleanser to help filter and clean the air in my living space. Then one day I was reading a page on energy saving tips, where they wrote a lot about new air conditioners, which are so efficient that you would barely notice a big difference in your utility bill, after eliminating stand-alone home air cleaners and fans. So when it was finally time for me to start building my own house, I decided to try one of these simple air conditioners with very satisfying results.
We have a small, ventless heater we use to heat our kitchen. It is very compact, but delivers a lot of heat. The heater operates on electric, and can warm up my kitchen in a very short time. When the water heater turns on, it makes a noise that sounds a lot like quarters being dropped into some sort of glass jar. That sound reminds me that my monthly fuel invoice is climbing higher and higher. I try not to start up the kitchen heater. This season, the weather has been enjoyably mild. I live in an area that gets numerous amounts of snow and subzero temperatures for these months. Winter often arrives sometime within September, and holds on until the beginning of June. We have been lucky this holiday season, and I have not needed the kitchen heater until yesterday. It is the center of the winter season, and yesterday, it started to snow for a little bit. We got about six inches of snow and were very cold. The wind outside was chilly and blowing those snowflakes all around us. My kitchen was so cold that I couldn’t stand to cook supper. I hated to start my ventless heater, but there was really no choice. As soon as i pushed the button and the heat started pouring out, I felt much more content. I know that the ventless heater helps out our main furnace by carrying so much of the workload. When it’s really chilly outside, both of the heaters run constantly, and I never imagine that my house is overly hot.
I am supposed to have some lunch with a friend when I get back from school tomorrow. I am a terrible friend because I put insufficient time into my friendships. I do not plan any time out of my day to travel and see my friends. I will in no way call or text anyone. I usually prefer to stay home over the rest. My friend wants to meet up tomorrow and I am looking forward to it. She wants to see a movie and head to lunch. I hate that she is only interested in romance movies. Second, I do not need to eat out and take a break from my work day. I have lots of work that I need to get done tomorrow. What I should do is sit before my furnace and work by my laptop. I work entirely online for my job to ensure that I can work when I want. I have a lot of work built up that I really should work on all day next week. I need to camp out in front of my heating system and get to it. Instead my friend are intending to make me take time off. I really can’t because I have so much to do. I know I will bail on her tomorrow. I will probably sleep in and then exercise. I will turn off my own HVAC system for my work out. Then I will switch it back on as i am showering. By the time I am done with my shower the living room will be warm as a result of the system. Then I can do some work online and finish all my own work.
I have a lot of health issues, and need to do everything possible to safeguard myself. My house must provide a safe haven, where I can easily feel healthy and comfortable. Over the spring and summer, I try to seal up my windows a bit. I have a state-of-the-art HVAC system and an air cleanser to filter contaminants out of my breathing air and maintain ideal humidity levels. Even with one of these very costly systems installed, I was still sneezing, coughing, and experiencing constant allergy symptoms. I called up my HVAC technician and asked for suggestions. He recommended that I weatherize the house. He said that some easy, inexpensive steps would lower my energy bills and also fight against pollution. The leaks and cracks within my home were allowing my wonderfully cool air to flee, driving my utility bills up and up. These same leaks were allowing outside air to come on in. Along with the outdoor air, I was getting exhaust fumes, dust, pollen, and other toxic contamination. It was causing problems together with moisture, which led to complaints about mold. I decided to attack this issue from every direction. I have added insulation in all of the cracks and crevices within my walls and ceiling. I’ve weatherstripped around all my windows and doors. I have replaced my old windows with excellent quality alternatives, and put in a brand new front door. I’ve checked to make certain no air can get in around the pipes of the plumbing or even my electrical outlets. I have discovered that weathering the house assisted in greatly improving my health, convenience, and cleanliness of my property. I’m saving money on both my utility bills and the expense of allergy medicine.
I have been a little depressed lately because I have a great deal of work to do. I head to college full time and will also work. Next semester I am starting student teaching and I will be nervous. I feel like student teaching should be illegal because it is slavery. I know it is certainly not technically slavery, but if you see it as the experience it really is; you may see my point. Student teaching is a full time job where you can’t get paid. I will have to report to work everyday and get no money realistically. I will spend my effort, energy and gas in my personal vehicle for no benefit. The only reason teachers want student teachers is so as to get paid and not do anything. This is just like how slave owners would just watch their workers. I cannot support myself on no income so I’ve begun work at a different job. I also need to take other college classes at the same time. I am going to have more on my plate and I am not getting excited about it. The teacher will be able to decide everything that I will have to work on. I will have to educate, make lesson plans and do the work. I feel like she is going to make me stay after school and clean the area. Next I will be arranging the HVAC equipment. She honestly may make me clean the heating along with cooling system. I have to do what she says so I really could be replacing filters and wiping down air conditioners by the end of the job.
My grandfather used to be on my case about receiving exercise and becoming big and strong. He was worried I might blow away in the the wind or something along those lines. Since his teenage years he or she was a lumberjack so workout was never something he had to take into account. But when he looked from me, all he saw was a desk-worker using a television addiction. Though I might get annoyed with him, I knew his worry stemmed from love and ultimately I bought into it and started working out regularly. Recently I picked up one particular all-in-one home-gyms and I are actually really enjoying it, except that our house does not have air conditioning so it can find rather stuffy and hot. So my determination being more physically fit, also influenced an HVAC system upgrade. I figured that beyond simply making the home more comfortable, it would be great to obtain better air quality all all-around with proper filtration. It did actually me that a modern air conditioner would certainly provide this. So I began to shop around. One of your neighborhood heating and cooling suppliers said they can probably install the air conditioner and together with some new thermostats, they will be able to hook it right in together with my old furnace. That sounded like the way to go. The HVAC technicians showed up two days later with all the new cooling equipment, ready to complete the installation. It took them slightly over two hours. Once everything was all set, I was all set to help exercise in premium air brainwashed comfort.
Kids and their obsession while using the computer and social media right now is just unreal to me personally. When I was a little one, computers were big and kids didn’t want one of them at all. We used to enjoy the outside everyday. Our biggest concern was how a number of friends would play outside that night after dinner, not the number of friends were going to “like” one of our arbitrary posts online. My daughter is an avid user of social media as well as the Internet. She is in ninth grade. When she gets home from the school day, she runs off the bus and goes straight towards the computer. She sits in front of this screen for hours. I started to get really curious in regards to what she was always doing on there. I would ask her but as a typical 9th grade girl, she gave me very extremely vague answers. I hated to act like this, but I did start to get worried about what exactly she was doing on the website for many hours. One day when she wasn’t home, I logged into her social media to see the type of things she posts about. It had been pretty harmless stuff, but something caught my eye. In multiple posts, she was complaining about how precisely hot our home was without having A/C. As I thought about it, I started to agree with her. Her posts were getting lots of likes too. Maybe it was time to have a cooling system installed in our home. Currently, we do not own a air conditioning. It’s time to do some online research for more info about cooling unit costs. My daughter are going to be so happy when she finds out.
