I had electric wall heaters

I had electric wall heaters, and I definitely wouldn’t recommend them.

  • I have lived in quite a few houses with quite a few different types of heating systems, but I definitely hated the electric wall heaters the most.

These electric wall heaters are basically glorified space heaters, but they can be left unsupervised. Let me explain how these wall heaters work. They look like the small heaters in each room for a radiator/boiler. However, instead of heating your house with steam like the radiators connected to a boiler, they simply plug into the breaker box. Each room gets one of these heating systems, and that also means that each room gets a thermostat. Although it might seem cool to have a thermostat in every room that can allow people to set the temperature to whatever they like, what mostly happened was kids would adjust the thermostats way too high and then open the window and waste all that heat. While these electric wall heaters were super affordable to buy at the store, they can at a cost. These electric wall heaters were just as expensive to use on a daily basis as a space heater. While you might have felt like you were saving money when you bought these heaters at the beginning, you definitely spent more in the long run compared to a furnace. The worse part about these electric wall heaters was the appearance. They looked terrible, and you had to arrange your room based on the placement. I definitely do not miss the electric space heaters, and I am content with my furnace.

Smart thermostats have a ton of cool features

I have been tempted to buy a smart thermostat for a long time, and I think that I might actually do it soon.

You might be unfamiliar with a smart thermostat, so I will give you a run down.

A smart thermostat is simply the next step up from a digital thermostat. They have a ton of features, which vary by model, that make them better than both traditional thermostats and digital thermostats. Although they can still function as regular thermostats, it is the extra features that make smart thermostats so much better than regular thermostats. In this article, I want to explain each of the features briefly. First, with a smart thermostat, you can set a schedule for your HVAC units. While some digital thermostats already had this feature, I found that it was very difficult to actually set a schedule on a regular digital thermostat. With the smart thermostat, the interface makes it much easy and user-friendly. Another cool feature is the zone-control feature. With some extra installation, you can create zones in your house that allow you to heat and cool your house to different temperatures in different temperatures. Therefore, if you have people in your house with different preferences, you can accommodate that. A smart thermostat also lets you use your thermostat from your phone, which is super cool. Imagine being able to adjust your thermostat from anywhere at any time! Finally, some smart thermostats can learn your temperature preferences and adjust them automatically using artificial intelligence. Who wouldn’t want a smart thermostat? I think I might buy one very soon.

You don’t need a smart thermostat. You need vent

I have been seeing a lot of news recently about smart thermostats.

  • My friends all have smart thermostats, and they are convinced that I need a smart thermostat too.

I will admit that I have considered getting a smart thermostat, but I have ultimately decided that I don’t need a thermostat. All of the cool functions on a smart thermostat are functions that I either don’t need or already can do with my normal thermostat. Let’s take one of the coolest features of a smart thermostat. By this, I am referring to the zone feature on your smart thermostat. You can install a smart thermostat on specific HVAC units, and it will create zones in your house that can be heated or cooled to different temperatures. For instance, if you have a man cave and you like chilly temperatures, you can set the thermostat in that area to a cooler temperature while allowing for a regular temperature in the rest of the house. Although this seems like a really cool feature, I believe that this is a feature that most houses already have. No, your thermostat does not have this feature. No, your HVAC unit does not have this feature. However, I want you to tell me what the purpose of those vents in your room is. Those vents were installed to control the temperature in a specific room. If you simply adjusted the thermostat to the most extreme temperature and closed the vents partially in the rest of the house, you would accomplish exactly what you want. There is no need to buy a smart thermostat.

I have the vent closed in my office

I have the vent closed in my office because my wife doesn’t know how to use an air conditioner properly, and it is super annoying.

I wish that my wife loved using the air conditioner like a normal person.

I know that this sounds pretty objective, but hear me out. Most people adjust their thermostats to a normal temperature such as 68-72 degrees. Normally, there is a slight disagreement about temperatures within that range, but most people will feel comfortable in this range. However, my wife is an absolute mad person. Did you know that if you turn down your thermostat to the lowest setting possible, your thermostat will just run constantly without ever stopping? Furthermore, if you turn the fan setting to always stay on, your house will be even colder. This is exactly how my wife likes the temperature in our house, and I can’t stand it. It feels like I am standing outside on a cold fall day right before winter. I have tried to adjust the thermostat before, but it just causes a massive argument. Apparently, I should have known this when we decided to get married. Instead of arguing, I have coped with the way that she uses the thermostat in a clever manner. I have built a man cave in my house, and I spent most of my time in that area. I have the vent closed in that area of the house, and I can simply crack the door when I want to feel the arctic temperatures. Now, I have one area of the house where I can feel comfortable. It isn’t ideal, but it is the best thing that I can do without adjusting the thermostat and causing an argument

My son can’t figure out why the air conditioner makes so much noise

My son can’t figure out why the air conditioner is making so much noise, and it is super adorable.

I just had a newborn baby, and I am absolutely in love.

I am a very unemotional person, and I was very nervous that I wouldn’t have a good maternal instinct. In fact, I was terrified that I was going to be a bad mom. However, I had absolutely nothing to be worried about. I love my son with everything in me, and I am so blessed. However, I have also learned that having a newborn changes things in your house. For instance, I have had to adjust the HVAC units in my house for my newborn. I am constantly afraid that my son is cold, and I have adjusted the thermostat to reflect that. I normally like the temperatures in my house to be pretty chilly, but I can tell that my son does not like it. When my thermostat is turned to a higher temperature, the central air conditioner does not run nearly as much. I am sure that this is obvious, but there is a point that I am trying to make. Normally, my central air conditioner runs constantly, and I can’t get it to turn off. Now, the central air conditioner will kick on and off at random times, and my son can tell. I have a very old central air conditioner, and it is very loud. When the central air conditioner turns on, you can definitely tell. Even though my son can’t express things in speech, I can see from his face that he notices his central air conditioner. He jumps when it turns on, and he looks around like he is trying to figure out what the noise is.

Trailers are not made for furnaces

I love living in my new house.

I guess that my new house is technically a trailer, so I am not sure if that counts.

However, I used to live in an apartment before, and this trailer seems so much more spacious than a regular apartment. I love how many bathrooms I have. I love having a yard. I love the privacy that having my own place affords. However, there is definitely one thing that I do not appreciate in my trailer. I definitely feel like the furnace in this new house is not able to keep up with the needs of this trailer. I am thankful that the furnace works pretty well. We have lived in this trailer for a while, and we haven’t had to have the furnace repaired yet. We definitely have had trouble with the furnace. In an apartment, you are surrounded by other apartments that keep your house warm and cozy. If we went away on a trip and adjusted our thermostat, our furnace wouldn’t even turn on because the other apartments were heating our apartment so well. Furthermore, our furnace had a smaller area to heat in the apartment, and it did it well. We discovered that the furnace heats our trailer very unevenly, leaving some areas of the house to be very warm while others are definitely still chilly. However, the worst part about having a trailer is the insulation. Although trailers are decently insulated, they still lose a ton of heat. Our furnace runs a lot more often simply to keep up with the heat loss in our trailer. If I did it all over again, I would probably get a house instead of a trailer, but it is definitely too late now.

Heating your RV is tough

If you have ever owned an RV, you know that using them is one of the most exciting things that you can do.

  • However, I have taken it one step further and have decided to move into my RV full-time.

While I definitely enjoy the freedom of living in an RV, there are definitely sacrifices that have to be made when you are living in a space that small. For instance, the central air conditioner does not work very well. Sure, most people love the central air conditioners in their RV, but I have discovered that I typically have a hard time doing anything when my central air conditioner is running. For instance, you absolutely cannot cook and use the microwave while the central air conditioner is running. However, the hardest part about owning an RV is trying to heat it. I have a furnace in my RV, and the furnace heats up pretty well. I am lucky that the furnace still works because this furnace is definitely old. However, I have been struggling with my furnace a lot due to the poor insulation of the trailer. I lose a ton of heat from my trailer, and the furnace has a hard time keeping up. I also constantly have to worry about my water pipes freezing. I have managed to insulate the bottom of my trailer with hay bales, but it isn’t good enough. I also have to use a space heater in one place just to supplement the loss of heat. I have discovered that RVs just weren’t made to be used full-time in the winter.

Camping in an RV is awesome

I used to hate camping. I hated it with a burning passion. It was the most inconvenient thing that I ever did. I would pay people money to sleep in a nylon sack on the world’s most uncomfortable bed. I would walk half a mile to go to the bathroom and take a shower in the world’s nastiest bathroom. Furthermore, I would be completely uncomfortable during the day with the heat, and the tent would be warmer. Without an air conditioner, there was absolutely no way to cold off. That is why I eventually decided that I was going to buy an RV. Now that I have purchased an RV, my life is completely changed. I love camping now. I have all the conveniences of living in a house, but the best part is the central air conditioner. I would spend money on an RV any day to get the air conditioner. One of the worst parts about camping was the lack of ways to get away from the heat. Now, when I go camping, I am able to set the thermostat as soon as I get there. At any point of the camping trip, if I get too hot from the sun, I can simply go inside and enjoy the central air conditioner. Sure, this RV was pretty expensive, and I would have saved a lot more money by staying inside and enjoying my own central air conditioner. However, the RV with the central air conditioner allows me to enjoy my favorite aspects of camping while avoiding the worst parts of it.

I hate camping because of the HVAC units

I really don’t like camping.

I can’t even think of one thing that I enjoy about camping.

I still don’t understand why anyone would ever voluntarily pay in order to go camping. First of all, air mattresses, or sleeping on the ground, is super uncomfortable. The bathrooms are super far away, and taking a shower is gross and inconvenient. You constantly get eaten alive by bugs, and you never feel clean. Cooking and washing dishes is inconvenient, and I never leave happy. I would rather pay myself to sleep in my comfortable house. However, the worst part about going camping is the lack of a central air conditioner. One of the things that make my day every day is a central air conditioner. I work outside a lot, and after a long day outside in the heat, there is nothing that cools me off better than a central air conditioner. Camping is very similar to workout outside. You spend a ton of time in the heat, and you start to get uncomfortable. Unfortunately, you no longer have the central air conditioner to cool you off during these moments. Instead, you can only go in your hot tent, which is even worse than hanging out outside. Even if you could fix all the other problems with camping, I still wouldn’t do it without a central air conditioner. I definitely understand why people prefer RVs since they have air conditioners that make the entire experience more enjoyable. Whenever the day gets hot, you can simply retreat inside and crank the thermostat. At that point though, is it really camping?

How to use your HVAC units effectively during a workout

If you like working out, then you are probably always looking for tips and tricks to make your workouts that much better.

One thing that I always recommend is to learn how to use your HVAC units properly to make sure that you get the best workout possible.

In this article, we are going to discuss this in more detail. First of all, you can use heat to burn fat during the winter. If you simply bump your thermostat up slightly during the winter, you can encourage your body to burn more calories. It would be comparable to working out in a sauna. Alternatively, in the summer, you can simply turn your central air conditioner off while you are working out in order to heat up that much better. However, if you want a more drastic workout, you might turn your furnace off for a bit during your workout. At the very least, you could close the vent to your room. During extreme cold, your body has to burn a lot more calories just to keep you warm. There are other ways to use your HVAC units more effectively. After your workout, it will be important to adjust your thermostat for the cooler temperatures after a workout. While you don’t want the temperatures to be extremely cold, a comfortable cooler temperature can help you relax after an especially difficult workout. Now, if you want a very difficult workout, then simply leave your house with their HVAC units and learn to workout outside. There are so many options to use your HVAC units for the best workout possible.
