I'm a bit unusual when it comes to how I care about different rapidly changing temperatures

I’m kind of weird when it comes to temperature preferences… I easily don’t mind the heat periodically, even if it’s somewhat extreme.

However, I love the cold too, especially when it’s time to go to bed! That’s why summer time vacations on the beach in subtropical temperatures are for me! I care about soaking up the rays of the sun during the day plus enjoying the sand & surf.

However, I constantly make sure that I never overdo it… Before the heat manages to get oppressive, I’m back in our motorcar plus blasting the air conditioner, and then I head back to our hotel room in the late day or early night after grabbing a bite to eat in a nice, cool air conditioned restaurant. That’s when I go from soaking up the warmth, to enjoying the coolness of a enjoyable quality air conditioner! I love to take a nice, hot plus steamy shower plus then set the temperature control entirely low. It’s a hotel room plus I’m not paying for the energy bill after all! I will shamelessly set the temperature control on the air-conditioning unit to as low as 80 degrees plus just bask in the coolness. It may get pretty cold to the point where I’ll get extra blankets plus curl up under them, but that is just the way I love it. I believe enjoying different extremes of temperature plus humidity levels is section of myself and others entirely enjoying our vacation, now that I guess of it. I dream of such vacations when I’m sitting in our office at our desk, wishing I had control of the temperature control or that I could go outside somewhere where the sun is shining!

Cooling tech

My apartment A/C froze up because I turned the thermostat to 60 degrees

After high school, my best friend and I decided to get jobs and go to work.

We both worked at the diner at night, and I attended classes during the day for a while.

My best friend tried attending classes too, but she partied way too much at night. Eventually, I was partying too much to study too. Both of us could have done better, but we should have lived at home instead of getting our own apartment. I remember one weekend in particular, when my best friend and I decided to have a huge party. There were 20 or more people in the apartment at one time, and the indoor temperatures were hot despite the A/C being on. I thought it would be a good idea to adjust the thermostat temperature to 60°. With so many people in our apartment, I just wanted a cool atmosphere. I had no idea this action would cause problems with the A/C unit. My best friend and I passed out sometime after 3 am, and I woke up first. I was sweating profusely, and the air conditioner wasn’t working. The temperature was still set to 60°, but the indoor temperature was only 78. I knew something was wrong and I immediately decided to contact the apartment maintenance staff. They came over before lunch to look at the A/C. They determined that the problem was an iced unit. When I set the thermostat to 60 degrees, I caused this awful chain reaction. I had to wait several hours for the A/C unit to thaw out.

Using a thermal camera to find the dead spot

My wife and I decided to buy an old cabin with a lot of upgraded amenities.

The old cabin was quaint and charming on the outside, but inside things were modern and Sleek.

My wife and I were especially happy with the radiant heated flooring. Both of the bedrooms and the master bathroom have radiant heated flooring. We also had a fireplace in the living room to make things cozy. My wife and I didn’t know anything about radiant heated flooring, when we bought the place. We knew things were working at the time, because we purchased the cabin and the middle of October. It was already pretty chilly outside, and our walkthrough included a lengthy description of the radiant floor features. The first time my wife and I had a problem with the radiant flooring, we had to call a specialist to fix and find the problem. My wife called an HVAC company, but they recommended a radiant floor specialist for the job. Luckily, they had the name and number of this person. My wife and I contacted the radiant flooring specialist and made an appointment. They used a thermal camera to find the dead spot in the floor. We could tell that there was no heat near the couch and loveseat, but we didn’t know where the problem was originating. The specialist used a cool thermal camera to find the spot, so we didn’t have to tear everything apart. It was a really neat piece of technology, and one of the more interesting things I have seen in awhile.

I'm going to HVAC school too

My best friend Gary and I have known each other for 15 years.

We met in the third grade, when we played soccer, baseball, and football together.

Gary is a wonderful guy, and he is smart and handsome. He could go to school anywhere, and he chose to attend HVAC technical school. When I heard the news, I decided to attend theHVAC technical school too. My mom and dad weren’t very happy with the decision, because they really wanted me to go to college. I knew college wasn’t right for me, but I just didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. When Gary told me about HVAC school, I was interested immediately. They have classes on air conditioner repairs, furnace installations, rewiring thermostats, and even smart house technology. The classes look fun and interesting. I have to take a couple of intermediate classes first, because I don’t have a lot of machine knowledge or electronics knowledge. I took the placement test before talking to my mom and dad, and I scored well. I only have to take these two classes, even though Gary has to take a math and an English class. I guess we know which one of us excels in which areas. My mom and dad will eventually come around, but I am really happy about my choice. I’m glad Gary made the decision at first, because I think it helped point me in the right direction. Even though my mom and dad think this is a wild and crazy choice, I think it feels like the right thing for me.

The small dehumidifier actually worked

My mom and dad has a nice in-ground pool with a screened enclosure.

It’s probably the nicest thing about the whole house.

When my sister and I were kids, my parents swore they would never buy a pool. They didn’t even want to purchase one of those vinyl pools with a liner. When my sister and I went to college, they decided to build a pool in the backyard. They also built a small cabana and fenced enclosure. The whole project must have sent them back $50,000, but I never asked. My mom and Dad paid for my sister and I to attend 4 years of college, and I never asked how they paid for that either. A few months ago, my mom called with some concerns. She was worried about the humidity in the cabana. Apparently there has been some visible mold in the corners of the cabana. I told my mom that she should buy a small dehumidifier. My mom protested, and she bought a fan instead. She called the next day and said the fan was not providing any relief. I told my mom to buy a dehumidifier again, and this time she listened to my advice. She purchased a small dehumidifier from the Supercenter, and she plugged it in behind the couch. In 24 hours, the indoor air quality was crisp, cool, and free of any musty smell. My mom called to give me an update, and she was really happy with the wonderful results. I was happy to help in glad my mom listened to my dehumidifier advice.

A beach home rental

Owning a beach house became much more of a liability the old my partner plus I became.

While still active, all of us just sort of ran out of motivation to keep up with all the details that go with beach house ownership.

There seemed love there was never enough time. Plus, all of us wanted to use our limited energy pursuing other endeavors. When retirement became a real thing, all of us decided to skip owning a beach house for a while. The people I was with and I felt super fortunate to have eeked out a tiny profit from the sale of our home. So, that currency went into a fund plus all of us went into a rental home. I haven’t rented since I rented an beach house in graduate university. There is a lot to be said for renting over owning. I prefer not mowing my lawn. Calling the office when the fridge is on the fritz is excellent. However, I am encountering 1 section where I am being frustrated to no end. I’m talking about my Heating plus A/C unit. Well, it’s not my Heating plus A/C unit even though I wish it was. This is because if it was mine I would simply have it replaced. The heating plus cooling system in our rental beach house is numerous decades old. While I respect the fact that it is still running, it is beyond insufficient. However, this view falls on deaf ears at the rental office. To them, until it suffers a catastrophic failure, I should just get used to it. This is a bit taxing to swallow. This Heating plus A/C unit is so old that the SEER rating is not even printed on it. It takes numerous hours to lower the temp in the house by 2 degrees. I can’t deal with that. Perhaps all of us will be more careful about checking everything out before all of us rent again.

Heater maintenance

The HVAC professional does a good job

So various of us go right to the iphone when something is not working in our home.

I understand that to some degree.

The pace of this society is so fast that almost everyone just don’t have time to take care of household issues plus repairs. Yet, there was a time when you could maybe option up an owners manual before you picked up a iphone. I have been prone to being the kind of human who enjoys to at least have a look at something before making a repair appointment. While I’m semi handy plus love to do stuff around the house, the main motivation is simply saving currency. So, when the Heating plus A/C went down, I figured it couldn’t hurt to have a look first. It was boiling outside plus the Heating plus A/C was not blowing any frigid air. The Heating plus A/C unit was running so I knew it wasn’t a power problem. And, it didn’t seem to be acting or sounding any different. I deduced that the refrigerant must have been low. So, I went online plus found an cooling system recharge kit. Since, I could get the recharge kit the next day, I figured I’d save myself a repair call. I was so proud of myself up to the point where I wasn’t. The recharge kit arrived plus I got myself to work. I followed the instruction closely. Recharging the cooling system didn’t seem all that tough. I went inside plus felt the cooling system was frigid again. But, not so fast. I overfilled the refrigerant which then cracked a very important set of tubing. My satisfaction lasted mere hours.

The certified HVAC tech

In fact, all of us told the Heating plus A/C contractor that unless they sent out our Heating plus A/C tech, all of us would go anywhere else

My old guy can apply 1 of his stories to just about anything that happens. This guy is full of more unwarranted advice plus maxims than any other human I have ever come across. It just never ends with this guy. You come in perspiring from working outside only to hear this old guy tell you it’s cooler to work in the morning. Jeez, thanks dad, you easily solved that riddle. Yet, he can’t understand why my mom simply music him out. Poor thing, at least when there were all us kids in the house, dad had numerous targets. Now, she’s the only 1 around in the Heating plus A/C controlled beach house so she gets it all. I’d tune him out as well. However, that dude did tell me something that I apply to all kinds of situations. He told me once that finding an fair mechanic is far more important than finding a superb doctor. He has a real point. Doctors are unusual now. Unless there is a limb hanging off, my doctor devotes all of 7 hours to an office visit. Where my mechanic knows my car inside plus out. The same can be said for my Heating plus A/C tech. The people I was with and I went through a few before all of us found our current heating plus cooling pro. Now, that all of us found him, all of us aren’t letting go. In fact, all of us told the Heating plus A/C contractor that unless they sent out our Heating plus A/C tech, all of us would go anywhere else. The main reason is this guy is certified, organized, thorough plus honest. A package not found in any repair related industry much anymore.
