Southern weather and air conditioner

After years of thinking about moving, my husband and I eventually got enough money saved up to leave our hometown. Since we both work at home, we can easily work from anywhere in the country, which made the move easier. We got rid of a huge amount of our things, packed our house up in a big truck, and moved down south. Of course, the moving costs were much higher than we anticipated. We decided to spend our first year in a smaller apartment so that we could build our savings back up and study the area before investing in a house. We didn’t plan on staying in our apartment for any longer, but I think we might just renew the lease, because this apartment is wonderful! It came with brand new appliances, and a new state of the art HVAC system. Our apartment has central heating and cooling, and that’s completely new for us. Neither of us have ever had central air conditioning, since we grew up in this particularly chilly area. Now that i am in the south, having air conditioning is totally crucial. Even after a couple of weeks, I can’t imagine ever being without air conditioning again! Although our apartment is small, our electric bills are more affordable. All we have to do is make a few adjustments on the thermostat, and air conditioning starts pouring out of the air vents within seconds. As another advantage, our apartment complex schedules routine HVAC maintenance for us, so we never have to keep worrying about cleaning out the heating and cooling devices. My husband and I adore our new area, but we might love the central air conditioning more!

The winter weather and my heater

I am an outdoors guy. I like being at peace with Mother Nature instead of just sitting in the living room. My wife is not like me. She enjoys snuggling up in the blanket on the bed and reading for  hours. I would go nuts  if that was me. In order to entertain my adventurous mind, I own a few toys out in that garage that keep me occupied. In the wintertime, I like to play with my four-wheeler and my four wheel drive truck. Both of these things tend to be so fun to drive whether it’s raining or there is a lot of snow on the ground. Sad to say, these things require a great number of hours of  maintenance in my garage to keep them going. I was getting sick of turning wrenches in a cold garage, so I contacted my local HVAC provider  and they took it from there. I knew I wanted a good heater in there to melt the snow that gets blown in combined with one that makes me feel cozy late at night. I now work on my toys wearing merely a tshirt and jeans in the course of winter due to my new heating unit.  I know my heating charge is higher than it was formerly, but I really think it might be worth it. I am able to complete everything I want to  and I not have to worry about getting too cold with the heating on.  I should have had a heater installed in here in years ago, but I am certainly glad that we have one now. My new HVAC unit  has been an actual blessing.

I’m going to fix this unit

Year after year my company has a Christmas party for a lot of it’s employees. I think if you ever work at my company, Christmas is your favorite time of the year. How could it not be the best time? It is fun everyday during the end of the year. Mostly every day, clients are coming in and out of the office delivering treats and goodies to each of us as holiday gifts. We are always listening to Christmas music and sharing reports about each other’s own family traditions. The best of all is that the manager get a holiday bonus. Our boss is quite thoughtful and always gives us more than what we expect as a bonus each season. It really helps around the holiday time. I usually put it towards gifts for my closest friends and family. This year was not exactly the same for me. We all got our bonus and it was better than we ever have had, although I was unable to put it towards my Christmas gifts. This year it went toward repairing this old HVAC system I have in my house. I didn’t wish to put the money toward this, but when my heating and cooling unit abruptly broke down a week ahead of Christmas, I had no other choice. I called the HVAC company in my town and scheduled a quick HVAC appointment. I was having all my acquaintances over for Christmas Eve, thus had no other choice but to put the money towards  fixing the HVAC unit. I needed heat within this home if I planned on hosting guests here. While applying my holiday bonus toward HVAC system restoration wasn’t ideal, it was much needed.

My wife and I raised three kids in a big house in the suburbs. We had our share of problems, like all households, but the overarching memories of those days are absolutely of adoration and fun. The kids always like to “help” rake the leaves during the fall by diving into the piles, spreading the leaves all across our lawn, only to rake them back up again. The house had a good amount of space for parties, sleepovers, and each of our kids had their own room. It was a wonderful time, and we had a fantastic marriage. When the kids moved out, we just didn’t need all the space.  Just the heating and cooling cost for that big house was a waste of money, so we followed the energy saving tips we obtained online and we decided to sell our big house and purchase a smaller one closer to the town center. A lot of the smaller houses in those neighborhoods had happened to be razed and replaced by McMansions, and those that still existed usually had gas or oil furnaces, but no central air conditioning. We decided that we would buy one of the older houses and backfit it using a central HVAC system for a nice level of comfort and efficiency. After consulting with an HVAC contractor, however, we found that those houses wouldn’t have air vents installed because the ductwork that the furnaces use would run to registers in their baseboards. If we wanted to set up central A/C or a heat pump, we would have to run new ductwork inside the ceiling and cut a whole lot of holes throughout the house. Subsequently, he told us about a ductless mini split heat pump that would work in most of these houses.heating-and-cooling

I’m loving this cooling unit

I’m concentrating on a Master’s in Accounting because I need steady employment for the rest of my career.  The world will always need CPA’s, and I’m pretty good at it. I’m committed to saving cash, so I’m sharing a place with four other guys. None of my roommates would be considered ‘tidy. ’ I’m not a monk, though, so when I’m seeing someone, she’s not usually too pleased about the state of the house and doesn’t want to sleep over. It’s a little burdensome to pack an overnight bag and leave early for class when I want some female interaction. I guess what the girls like least about our place is that we have no central air conditioning. One of my roommates has a window A/C unit, but I make him pay extra toward the power bill for it. I’m willing to sweat rather than shell out the extra cash for the cool air. My grandparents did just fine with no AC, why can’t I? However, most of the girls I date don’t agree with me about climate control, in addition to staying over at their houses, I get frostbite from their HVAC systems. I usually pack flannel bottoms and a sweatshirt to sleep in the arctic blast coming from their air vents. I guess I’m pretty much accustomed to the heat since I don’t use air conditioning. I never adjust anybody else’s thermostat, but I’m regularly tempted. They wouldn’t notice an added degree or two on the temperature control panel, and it would even save them a couple bucks on their power costs.

Water heaters and the way that works

The two of us use well water which that means that our water source is used from the ground. The water contains a whole mess of minerals plus is gross. It gets all over our tub surround, corrodes our fixtures plus ruins our body. The hard water also can not be stopped by any water softeners or water washing products. It ruins all nice things in the plumbing neighborhood. Well recently our hard water was able to ruin our sizzling water. I was doing my cleaning plus I noticed that there was an icky rotten egg stink, and every time I went to use the water the stink came through the air. It was so gross that I could not kneel to clean dishes. I also did not want to wash my hair in that gross stink either. My family has had this happen at one time plus I knew what I had to do to repair the issue. The issue is that the sizzling water tank has a section called an anode rod.

My partner has torn out so several anode rods that he knew what to do; Next we had to dump blench down our the equipment.
