When we first moved in, we noticed that the house that we live in now had some really weird features in it.
There is a door that leads to nowhere, there are random built-in shelves all over the walls, and strangely enough, the heating and cooling vents point right out the doors of each room.
I was really confused at first about why things were like this, but I guess the guy who originally built the house did everything himself. Apparently, he fancied himself as a complete do it yourself kind of guy and he didn’t ever want to hire anyone to help him with the house project. Apparently, that included getting a general contractor or a heating and cooling technician to help him with the house. I guess he did everything the way that he thought it should be done, but it certainly is weird. I love the house, but I can’t stand all of the weird stuff in it and that’s especially true when it comes to the heating and cooling system. At first, I couldn’t figure out why in the world the rooms wouldn’t start cooling off whenever I would turn the air conditioning down on the thermostat. That’s when I realized that the air conditioning and heating vents were all pointed at the doors of the rooms! If I wanted a room to start cooling off in the summertime, then I would have to close the door to the room securely so that the air could actually circulate inside of the room. It was really a crazy set up and I can only assume that the guy who built the place just didn’t know what he was doing.
