Hair salon cooling was a mess

For our anniversary my fiance picked me up a gift certificate to my number one hair salon.  I was easily ecstatic that I would be able to go as well as have my hair done instead of just getting my usual quick trim.  I had been wanting to get my hair highlighted for several weeks but I never wanted to spend the money doing it. I could always think of at least 50 other things I should use the money on, but now with this gift certificate I am able to go as well as have a great time without feeling the mother’s guilt.  While I sat in the chair as the stylist prepped my hair for my color treatment, I kept shivering because the salon had the a/c on full blast. Having working in a salon myself as a stylist years in the past, I can understand that they are consistently up as well as moving around so they tend to feel a little overheated at times.  I figured that was the reason they keep the thermostat settings a little low. However, I did recognize that this month it was colder than normal in the venue. I wanted to question my stylist what was going on with the cooling machine but I thought maybe it would have been rude to ask as well as the last thing I wanted to do was make the person who was working on my hair angry!  Once I was under the dryer I began to warm up again. I certainly loved having the warm air just wash over me. After my hair was all finished as well as I was checking out I observed that a Heating as well as A/C repairman entered the salon as well as another stylist escorted him to the back. Seemingly, the salon was having an issue with their cooling machine as well as it wasn’t just me.

Juggling HVAC professional, plumber and electrician

When my partner, Paul as well as I began the project of building a house from the ground up, neither of us were prepared for the multiple decisions as well as details.  We suddenly learned that relying on a general contractor to handle everything was a mistake. We needed to hire specialists to complete the design, engineering and installation of the electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems.  While these professionals were able to provide the expertise as well as recommendations necessary to make smart and cost-effective choices, they were nearly impossible to coordinate. There were tons of delays as well as miscommunication as we waited for the electrician to install the wiring and the plumber to implement the drainage pipes as well as septic.  The heating and a/c business was absolutely wonderful. This business had access to an in-house sheet metal fabrication shop. This allowed a customized design for the duct system, without relying on any sub contractors. The heating and a/c contractor worked closely with us to determine the right style as well as size of heating and cooling system to suit our needs and expectations! He spoke at length with us about energy efficiency, sound levels as well as air quality.  He also made sure that no important details were overlooked, from the location of thermostats and vents, to straight-forward access to the air filter. He was as concerned with our year round comfort as with the aesthetics of the heating and cooling system. While I had trouble getting the electrician on the phone and the plumber took forever to complete the work, the heating and cooling contractor adhered to a strict schedule. It was such a relief when our project was completed, and we were finally able to move into our new home.

Hot water boiler already set up

When my spouse Bernard and I were house shopping, the two of us toured and considered all different types of properties.  Since we were moving to the northern part of the country, the home’s heating system was a major concern. We hoped to find a relatively new heating system which would provide efficient and reliable temperature control while in extreme weather.  The majority of the houses the two of us looked at were equipped with forced air furnaces. The house that Bernard and I both liked the best had a boiler installed in the basement. Both of us preferred this particular house’s location, layout, plus size, but the two of us were a bit unhappy about boiler heating.  The boiler was quite old, and we decided to have a heating, ventilation and a/c contractor check it out before the two of us made an offer on the house. The heating, ventilation and a/c contractor checked the boiler and determined that it was in fantastic condition. He explained that boilers tend to outlast most other types of furnaces, are especially reliable, and provide very efficient heating.  Boiler heating is a very clean, quiet, and a gentle form of temperature control which Bernard and I have come to appreciate. The boiler in the house is linked to baseboard heating, which takes up very little space and maintains very even comfort. Because of independent control units in the various rooms, the two of us are able to customize temperature settings to conserve energy, save money as well as personalize comfort.   No matter what the weather brings, our apartment is consistently perfectly warm, and the two of us aren’t spending a fortune on our monthly heating bills. We are seriously thankful we ended up purchasing the house with the boiler.

Want the HVAC unit set up right

            My entire life I’ve realized that I needed to work for myself. It was clear from a young age that I was born to manage and lead, rather than to follow the crowd mindlessly. I’ve always had trouble working in groups and often have concerns over the ability of my superiors to supervise. As such, it was only a matter of time until I opened my very own business and could have all the freedom and power that I wanted! I just needed to decide what sort of operation to open.

             It didn’t take too much research before I landed on my answer; the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning trade would be my new field! I wanted to choose a stable business, first and foremost. Well what do people always need? Indoor comfort. Everyone pays money to improve their household air conditions, no matter what climate they live in. In our area it’s totally normal for people these days to own both central heating and central cooling, and that opens up a lot of opportunities for business as far as I’m concerned. Not only is there the original purchase of the ventilation equipment itself – the actual furnace or air conditioner that must provide the treated air

          . Besides the large machinery, you can also count on plenty of installation fees for brand new air temperature control systems. Then, in the long run, if you provide excellent customer service you can rely on the client to sign up for routine maintenance packages, as well as occasional emergency repair services. All in all, I think the ventilation business is going to be lucrative for me and my family.

Our humidity is an issue

Living in and area were we experience bad humidity and high heat, my wife and I have learned a lot about how to deal with it. We absolutely love the temperatures and most times don’t mind the humidity but sometimes both get too high for us. We are from up north where the seasons are drastic and range from really hot to extreme cold. We  just moved down here a few years ago and we will never go back. We got married up north several years ago and we truthfully got tired of the extreme weather up north. That’s why we moved down south to live our lives comfortably. We knew that it would never get too cold in the south and if we got too hot, we could simply go inside to the comfort of the air conditioning to cool off.  Down south it is required that you have an HVAC system that works well. You would not be able to handle the hot summer temperatures without it. A standard HVAC system will easily keep your home cool and will protect you from all the pollen that comes with the onset of spring as well. Brianna loves the fact that our HVAC system manages the humidity within the house too. I can tolerate high humidity but she genuinely can’t so she keeps the humidity at a low 44%. I think this is great because not everyone can all handle high heat or high humidity but both at the same time is terrible. This is exactly what happens during the summer here and that’s where I’ll give up and come inside to cool off in the comfort of the air conditioning. Without our HVAC system, I would have to go back up north because the warm weather here can be unbearable. This is why we schedule yearly maintenance on our HVAC plan to keep it working at peak performance.

Door open with HVAC on

       Occasionally ,I look at our life and feel a sense of awe for what it has become… For example, I never imagined that I would be swept off my feet and relocated to a modern city with the person of our dreams. I also never thought I’d be able to work from home and pursue our artistic tendencies. More than all, I definitely never foresaw becoming a stepmom before the age of thirty. But here both of us are!

               I care about my stepson so much, and really value the time both of us get to spend together. That being said, he sure is exhausting! The little guy undoubtedly wears me out and I always wind up getting sick after both of us hang out. It doesn’t help that he’s always running in and out of central cooling when both of us are playing! See, he lives down in FL, where the air quality is hot and humid every single day of the year… When both of us go to visit, it’s almost always about 95 degrees out, with 95% humidity. That means the air conditioning is definitely always running at full blast to keep the house cool and dry.

             Our little guy doesn’t seem to value the air quality and enhanced comfort too much. Instead of playing quietly in the cool air, he wants to run back and forth from the patio to the kitchen. That means both of us are always in and out, in & out, between ridiculously tepid and comfortably cool air for hours. I guess this contributes heavily to weakening my immune system and getting sick. I’m sure it also adds to the energy bill when we let all the cool air outside.

Humidity inside of the home

Where my parents live, they experience terrible humidity and heat during the summer months. The winters are mild and they never have to worry about shoveling snow again. They really prefer the warmer temperatures and don’t seem to mind the humidity most of the time either.  However, occasionally, both get too high even for them. When they lived up north, they dealt with summers that were schorching but winters that lasted for months on end. They moved down south a few years ago and they said that they will never go back up North again. They spent the first fifteen years of their marriage dealing with ice and snow and then decided they had enough. Once dad retired, they moved down south to live their lives comfortably. I know that it gets really hot in the south and if it gets too hot, they can duck into the house with the HVAC system to keep them cool.  Having a quality HVAC system in your house is very important and you need to make sure it is in well working condition. A well operating system can not only provide comfort, but, it can also keep you healthy. It will protect you from all the terrible pollen that comes out during the Spring. My mom really likes that the HVAC system manages the humidity in the house. Dad loves it when it is hot and sticky outside but mom wants is warm and dry. The HVAC system allows them to set different parts of the house at different settings. Even when the weather is slightly cooler, mom will set the thermostat to 75 or 80 degrees to keep the house nice and warm. Even though they don’t always agree on what temperature or what humidity level the house should have, they do agree on one fact. If not for the high end HVAC system that they had installed in their home.

The flu is going around

My wife and I live in an area where we experience terrible humidity and heat. We really like the climate and it is perfect for us. We are from up north where you basically have two seasons, really hot and muggy summers and very cold and snowy winters.  We just moved down here about four years ago and we will never go back. We were married about six years we be got tired of the cold weather up north. We looked for new jobs and moved down south to live where we felt we could be more comfortable. I prefer the weather here because it never get too cold in the south. If I get too warm, I can always duck into my cooled house thanks to my HVAC system. In the south it is required that you have a high quality HVAC system because you couldn’t be comfortable otherwise. Having a state of the art HVAC unit will always keep your home cool and it will protect you from all the pollen that comes out during the Springtime. My wife’s favorite feature with regards to the HVAC system is the fact that it controls the humidity levels indoors.  I can stand around 95% humidity but she really can’t, she keeps the humidity at a low 60%. I think this is great because we can all handle high heat or high humidity at the same time yet enjoy the warmth outside anytime of year. Without our HVAC system, we would not enjoy life here in the South nearly as much. We may even be tempted to go back North during the summer. Since we both still work, this would not be feasible at all. Neither of us are willing to relocate again so we are all the more thankful for the HVAC system in our home.thermostat

I’m really hurting now

To say that our area has High heat and humidity is a huge understatement.  We actually like the temperature and higher humidity however, sometimes, it even gets too high for us. My wife, Brianna and I are from up north where the summers are hot and the winters are harsh. We  just moved down to this area about five years ago and we will never go back. We got married exactly ten years ago and we finally got tired of the cold weather up north. That’s why we moved down south to live where we could enjoy the outdoors more during the year. I love that it never gets too cold in the south and if I get too hot I can always duck into my air conditioned home to cool off. Down south it is required that you have a working HVAC unit because you couldn’t be comfortable otherwise. A right HVAC plan will always keep your home cool and will protect you from all the harsh heat, humidity, and even pollen that may be in the air.  It is imperative for a clean and healthy home for sure. Brianna actually likes that our HVAC system manages the humidity in the house more than any other feature. I can sit around 95% humidity and feel comfortable, however, Brianna actually would love to have the humidity at around 50%. I guess this is best part of having quality heating and cooling in our home. It is important to each of us that we spend time outside. Whether it is hiking, lying on the beach, or even gardening, it is nice to know that when we have had enough, we can return to our comfortable home and relax in the perfectly cooled temperature that we choose. Without my HVAC system, I would have to go back up north because the summers here are unbearable.
