Making temperature control adjustments in different residences

My spouse and I have a couple of residences that the two of us transfer between.

Both of us have a nice little residence up north where the two of us stay from May until November, and a residence down south for the Wintertime weeks.

Our main goal is to avoid the most severe weather in each location. Keeping up with the demands of different residences is sometimes exhausting, and there is constant maintenance at both locations. Both of us need to own a few lawn mowers, a few vacuum cleaners, a few washing machines and a few of just about everything. Both of us also agonize about whichever residence is left vacant. The Wintertime weather up north is certainly brutal. Both of us experience temperatures down to the negatives with a huge accumulation of snow. The conditions cause all sorts of concerns, including water pipes being frozen and bursting. Both of us don’t want to pay to heat an empty residence to a comfortable temperature, so the two of us turn the temperature control as low as possible. Both of us then stress over the possibility of an oil furnace malfunction. When the two of us get back home in the Springtime, the two of us never even know what kind of damage the two of us might discover. This past year, I noticed that a few of the seams of the walls had popped entirely. I think this is because of major swings in temperature and the framework of the residence expanding and contracting. Both of us have similar issues down south, except the concern is the heat and humidity. Both of us are reluctant to run the air conditioner machine when the house is unoccupied, however the condensation and moisture lead to mold and mildew growth… Just recently, I made the decision to invest in a smart temperature control for both properties. The ability to access the temperature control and get alerts through my smartphone is crucial.

Handling temperature control in multiple properties

My partner plus I have a couple of properties that the two of us transport between.

We have a home up north where the two of us stay from May until November, plus a residence down south for the frosty weeks! Our goal is pretty much to avoid the most brutal weather in each location. Keeping up with the demands of two properties is periodically exhausting. There is constant maintenance at both locations. We need to own 2 lawn mowers, 2 vacuum cleaners, 2 washing machines plus 2 of everything pretty much. We also worry about whichever property is left vacant. The frosty weather up north is brutal. We experience temperatures down to negative temperatures with a massive accumulation of snow. The conditions cause all sorts of drawbacks, including water pipes easily freezing plus bursting. We don’t wish to pay to heat an empty property to a comfortable temperature, so the two of us turn the thermostat as low as we can. We then stress over the opportunity of an oil furnace malfunction. When the two of us get home in the Springtime, the two of us never actually know what kind of complications the two of us might find. This past year, I noticed that quite a few of the seams of the walls had popped, but I guess this is due to major swings in temperature plus the framework of the property expanding plus contracting. We have similar setbacks down south, except the main concern is the heat plus humidity. We are reluctant to run the cooling equipment when the loft is unoccupied, however the condensation plus moisture lead to mold plus mildew growth! Just recently, I decided to invest in a smart thermostat for both properties. The ability to access the thermostat plus acquire alerts through my smartphone is invaluable.

Trying to keep track of the temperature control in two homes

All of us are easily reluctant to run the a/c appliance when the dwelling is unoccupied, however the condensation and moisture lead to mold and mildew growth

My family and I have two dwellings that all of us transfer between. All of us have a dwelling up north where all of us stay from May until November, and a residence down south for the cold season weeks. Our goal is basically to avoid the most dire weather in each location, however keeping up with the demands of two dwellings is occasionally exhausting. There is constant service at both locations. All of us need to own two sod mowers, two vacuum cleaners, two washing machines and two of just pretty much everything. All of us also fret about whichever dwelling is left vacant. The cold season weather up north is quite brutal. All of us experience temperatures down to negative twenty with a sizable accumulation of snow. The conditions cause all types of concerns, including water pipes bursting from the cold temperatures. All of us don’t want to pay to heat an empty dwelling to a comfortable temperature, so all of us turn the temperature control as low as possible. All of us then stress over the chance of furnace malfunctions. When all of us get home in the Spring, all of us never really know what kind of destruction all of us might find. This past year, I noticed that quite a few of the seams of the walls had broken, however I think this is due to major swings in temperature and the framework of the dwelling expanding and contracting. All of us have similar complications down south, except the complication is the heat and humidity. All of us are easily reluctant to run the a/c appliance when the dwelling is unoccupied, however the condensation and moisture lead to mold and mildew growth. Not long ago, I invested in a smart temperature control for both properties. The ability to access the temperature control and receive alerts through my smartphone is absolutely amazing.

Duct cleaning

I should have enrolled in an HVAC service plan

A little over a few years ago, I invested in a central air conditioner machine for my residence.

It was a rather lavish project.

I bought a top-of-the-line cooling machine in order to take complete advantage of high efficiency operation. I was honestly hoping that a higher SEER level would prove worth the extra cost, but the lower electric bills help to offset the initial expense. At the time of the replacement, the Heating and A/C machine contractor advocated that I enroll in a maintenance plan with his business. He explained that for a tiny fee, they send a professional to repair the a/c machine every Spring. This seemed basically like a complete waste of money to me. I didn’t really know that a brand new a/c machine would need maintenance. I kept up with proper air filter changes and assumed the a/c machine would continue to operate at peak capacity… Just this past summer season, I started to have complications with it. I observed that the cooling machine was making more noise than usual. Every time it cycled on, there was an unusual rattling sound and a slightly musty stink coming from the vents. I also needed to lower the thermostat by a few degrees because the residence felt a bit overheated. This forced the a/c machine to run for longer cycles, use more energy and my electric bill was fairly large. I finally called for professional repair. The professional took the a/c machine apart and found a disgusting buildup of dust, mold and all sorts of debris within the equipment. This accumulation was totally restricting airflow, polluting my indoor air quality and impacting my comfort level. Because I hadn’t kept up with professional service, the manufacturer’s warranty no longer applied. I ended up with a very costly repair bill due to the amount of labor and replacement parts needed.

I wish I would have gone for regular A/C equipment service

A number of years ago, I invested in central a/c equipment for our home! It was a rather luxurious project.

I obtained top-of-the-line cooling equipment in order to take advantage of high efficiency operation.

I honestly hoped that a higher SEER level would prove worth the extra cost! The lower electric bills helped to offset the initial expense, but at the time of the upgrade, the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C equipment corporation recommended that I enroll in a service system with his company. He explained that for a very small fee, they send a serviceman to service the cooling equipment every Spring. This seemed to be a waste of money to me. I didn’t believe that brand new cooling equipment would need service. I kept up with proper filter changes plus assumed the cooling equipment would continue to operate at peak capacity. Just this past summer, I started to have complications with it. I noticed that the cooling device was making more noise than usual! Every time it cycled on, there was an unusual rattling sound plus a slightly musty smell coming from the vents. I also needed to lower the temperature control by a couple of degrees because the property felt a bit boiling. This forced the cooling equipment to run for longer cycles, use more energy plus our electric bill was rather large. I finally called for professional repair. The serviceman took the cooling equipment apart plus found a disgusting buildup of dust, mold plus all sorts of debris within the equipment. This accumulation was restricting airflow, polluting our indoor air quality plus impacting our comfort level overall. Because I hadn’t kept up with professional service, the manufacturer’s warranty no longer applied. I ended up with a pretty expensive repair bill due to the amount of labor plus new parts needed.

I should have gotten regular A/C service

Several years ago, I invested in a central cooling appliance for my home.

It was a rather high-priced project.

I obtained a top-of-the-line cooling appliance in order to take advantage of high efficiency operation. I was hoping that a higher SEER level would prove worth the extra cost. The lower electric bills helped to offset the initial expense. At the time of the replacement, the Heating & Air Conditioning appliance contractor advocated that I enroll in a maintenance plan with his supplier. He explained that for a small fee, they send a specialist to repair the air conditioner appliance every Springtime. This seemed like a giant waste of money to me. I didn’t believe that a brand new air conditioner appliance would need maintenance. I kept up with regular air filter changes plus assumed the air conditioner would continue to operate at peak capacity. Just this past summer, I started to have some serious concerns with it. I observed that the cooling appliance was making more noise than usual… Every time it cycled on, there was a peculiar rattling sound plus a slightly musty aroma coming from the HVAC vents. I also needed to lower the temperature control by several degrees because the dwelling felt a bit hot. This forced the air conditioner appliance to run for longer cycles, use more energy plus my electric bill was severely costly. I finally called for professional repair. The specialist took the air conditioner apart plus found a disgusting buildup of dust, mold plus all sorts of debris within the equipment. This accumulation was blocking airflow, polluting my air quality plus impacting my comfort level. Because I hadn’t kept up with professional service, the manufacturer’s warranty no longer applied. I ended up with a pretty huge maintenance bill due to the amount of labor plus upgrade parts needed.

Lack of service ends up with costly A/C repair

Roughly four years ago, I invested in a central air conditioner for our home.

It was a rather lavish project. I purchased a top-of-the-line cooling device in order to take advantage of high efficiency operation. I hoped that a higher SEER level would prove worth the additional cost, but the lower electric bills help to offset the initial expense. At the time of the installation, the Heating and A/C contractor made the suggestion that I enroll in a service plan with her corporation. She explained that for a small fee, they send a contractor to service the air conditioner device every Springtime. This seemed like a total waste of cash to me. I didn’t believe that a new air conditioner device would need service. I kept up with proper air filter changes and assumed the air conditioner would continue to operate at peak capacity. This past summer, I started to have severe issues with it. I observed that the cooling device was making more noise than usual, and every time it cycled on, there was a bizarre rattling noise and a slightly musty odor coming from the vents. I also needed to lower the temperature control machine by quite a few degrees because the apartment felt a bit overheated. This forced the air conditioner device to run for longer cycles, use more energy and our electric bill was costly. I finally called for professional repair. The contractor took the air conditioner device apart and found a disgusting buildup of dust, mold and all types of debris within the equipment. This accumulation was restricting airflow, polluting our indoor air quality and impacting our comfort level! Because I hadn’t kept up with professional service, the manufacturer’s warranty no longer applied. I ended up with a sizable repair bill due to the amount of labor and new parts needed.

Ending up with air conditioner repair because of lack of maintenance

A little over five years ago, I invested in central air conditioning for my home.

It was a rather expensive project.

I purchased a top-of-the-line cooling system in order to take advantage of high efficiency operation. I hoped that a higher SEER level would prove worth the extra cost. The lower monthly electric bills help to offset the initial expense. At the time of the installation, the HVAC contractor recommended that I enroll in a maintenance plan with his company. He explained that for a small fee, they send a technician to service the air conditioner every spring. This seemed like a complete waste of money to me. I didn’t believe that a brand new air conditioner would need maintenance. I kept up with regular filter changes and assumed the air conditioner would continue to operate at peak capacity. Just this past summer, I started to have problems with it. I noticed that the cooling unit was making more noise than usual. Every time it cycled on, there was a strange rattling sound and a slightly musty smell coming from the vents. I also needed to lower the thermostat by several degrees because the house felt a bit overheated. This forced the air conditioner to run for longer cycles, use more energy and my electric bill was huge. I finally called for professional repair. The technician took the air conditioner apart and found a disgusting buildup of dust, mold and all sorts of debris within the equipment. This accumulation was restricting airflow, polluting my indoor air quality and impacting my comfort level. Because I hadn’t kept up with professional service, the manufacturer’s warranty no longer applied. I ended up with a huge repair bill due to the amount of labor and replacement parts needed.
