What do we do now

I had the weirdest thing happening to my Heating, Ventilation and A/C method in the center of last summer. Every now and then, after going for a while the air conditioner would just absolutely turn off. After looking around, I realized the air conditioning system circuit breaker was turning off. The first time it went on was while I was in an electric storm, so I figured that lightning had car nearby and caused the breaker to stop. The 2nd time it happened was on a perfectly nice, sunny day, so I figured it must be the Heating, Ventilation and A/C method on its own. The next few times it happened I simply turned it back on, but then I got to wondering. I seemed to remember that breakers are often turned off when a power overload is found. I realized there may be one thing going on with my Heating, Ventilation and A/C method that could be a fire issue if not officially handled in the home.  The days were not getting any nicer, so I called an Heating, Ventilation and A/C serviceman out to figure out what is going on with my air conditioning system. It turned out that a gross air filter was the leading cause of the problem. The fan motor in my Heating, Ventilation and A/C method was having to go for extra hours to draw cool air through the dirty air filter. It was having to run more and pull in more and more electricity and thus the air cooling system circuit breaker will keep tripping to prevent an overload. I felt stupid for letting a dirty air filter cause this.

I knew that was smart

I had the worst thing happening to our Heating as well as A/C device in the heart of last summer. Every now as well as then, after working for a while the air conditioning would just absolutely turn off. After looking over it, I realized the ac system circuit breaker was stopping and starting. The initial time it happened was while in a windstorm, so I figured that lightning had van nearby as well as caused the breaker to turn on and off. The next time it happened was on a certainly clear, warm morning, so I figured it must be the Heating as well as A/C system itself. The next few times it happened I simply turned it back on, but then I got to pondering. I seemed to remember that breakers are often tripped when an electric overload is detected. I realized there may be something going on with our Heating as well as A/C equipment that could be a fire hazard if not properly handled at all. The afternoons were not getting any chillier, so I called an Heating as well as A/C man out to figure out what on earth was going on with our cooling system. It turned out that a clogged air filter was the main cause of the problem. The fan motor in our heater as well as A/C system was having to work more hours to draw cool air through the dirty air filter. It was having to run more as well as pull on more as well as more electricity as well as thus the ac system circuit breaker remained tripping to prevent an overload.

I don’t want a headache

I had the strangest thing happening to my HVAC system in the middle of last summer. Every now and then, after running for a while the air conditioning would just entirely shut off. After investigating, I realized the A/C circuit breaker was tripping. The first time it happened was during a thunderstorm, so I figured that lightning had truck nearby and caused the breaker to trip. The next time it happened was on a perfectly clear, sunny day, so I figured it must be the HVAC system itself. The next two times it happened I simply flipped it back on, but then I got to thinking. I seemed to remember that breakers are often tripped when a power overload is detected. I realized there may be something going on with my HVAC system that could be a fire hazard if not properly dealt with. The days were not getting any cooler, so I called an HVAC technician out to figure out what in the world was going on with my A/C. It turned out that a clogged air filter was the root cause of the problem. The fan motor in my HVAC system was having to work extra hard to draw cool air through the dirty air filter. It was having to run longer and draw on more and more electricity and thus the A/C circuit breaker kept tripping to prevent an overload. I felt sheepish for letting a dirty air filter cause such extensive problems with my HVAC system. If I had simply changed the air filter out with a new one like I should have, I would not have needed to make this service call. Well, now everything’s back to normal and my air conditioner is running just fine. I’m going to change the air filter far more regularly now, that’s for sure!

I had a big idea

I recently attended a writing retreat where I got to live in a newly remodelled house and enjoy the latest in heat pump, HVAC technology. The owner of the house meant for this place specifically to be used by hobbyist writing groups to get away and have time for our first love: writing our novels. For the group, she added two more wings on the house, which enables the home to have three more bedrooms in each wing which can sleep six people or more. Along with the bedrooms, she added a new kind of home heating I have never seen used this far up north. For the wings’ climate control, she added a heat pump. I can recall always being told we can’t use heat pumps way up north. But that was some time ago. Today, heat pumps can genuinely be used to heat homes in temperatures that are pretty cold. The heat pump is robust enough to keep working to bring in warm air in temperatures that reach fifteen degrees. With a simple remote control to manipulate the heat pump for each bedroom, these ductless mini split units are really effective at keeping the rooms warm. The owner decided to put one in every new bedroom, so each guest could adjust the heating and cooling without troubling anyone else. The heat pumps where installed by the HVAC contractor but are very discreet, especially because they’re far up on the wall. I love these new heat pumps. I was able to stay warm and comfortable all night long at the retreat.

I honestly thought it would work

If something can go wrong, it probably will eventually. You can’t ever get too comfortable with life because something can shatter what you have gotten used to. I can’t tell you how many times I have gone through this truth, but I probably don’t have to either. Although we can always try to prepare for every eventuality, we can’t ever be fully prepared for everything all the time. This is something we all get to know at some point; every one of us. Anyway, the reason I am mentioning all this, is because my family’s Christmas get together was hampered by a bad furnace last year. First of all, I would like to think we do a decent job keeping up with our furnace and its needs, however we had somewhat neglected it as of late. A massive cold front coming through where we live pushed our furnace to the limit, as we were really cranking up our HVAC system to remain warm. We had failed to get our furnace inspected in the fall, so there were problems with our furnace that were never addressed. It was around 8:00 when we passed around Christmas gifts, and we noticed quite a chill in the air. Our heater had given out on us. A furnace malfunction was not going to stop us, so we continued opening gifts. We did have a fireplace beside the Christmas tree, so I lit it and we all gathered close around it. It was still so very cold, but at least we had some measure of heat to make up for no central heating It was still a memorable Christmas that year, but it would have been nice to have been warm and toasty for Christmas.

I think I’m catching on

Learning about how mechanical things work has always interested me. People call me strange because a lot of the things I want to know about are rather mundane. They find it especially strange because they see no practical benefit from learning the things I am curious about. However, I find learning to always be of some use or enjoyment, even if I can get no personal value out what I learned, such as with the process of lighting a light bulb. It’s not like understanding how photons are created, as a result of electrons bouncing off of electrons, is a vital piece of information that’s going to change my life. However, it does improve my understanding of how electricity works, and I find that quite fascinating. When I was learning about my HVAC system, I found out what HVAC stands for. First of all, I never realized HVAC was an acronym to begin with. If you didn’t catch it, the acronym stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. I also never considered the process behind setting a specific temperature on my thermostat and getting the corresponding heat or cooling. However, as the acronym also suggests, the heating process is entirely separate from the cooling process. As for heating, a typical home will use either a furnace system or a boiler system. A furnace is a forced air system that uses fossil fuels to generate heat. A boiler uses hot water that travels through pipes to generate heat. Both of these systems have different means of heating. Whether it be a furnace or boiler,  the heating part of an HVAC system delivers the heat you need to your home. Obviously, since cooling is the process of removing hot air, an air conditioner functions independently of the heating system in an entirely different process.

My problems are not getting better

My bestie, Mary and I had been dating for nearly more than one years when all of us moved in together.  It seemed enjoy a easily great way to save on rent and utilities. Both of us are both recently graduated from university, not making much money, and struggling to spend our money off student loans.  We’ve now been living together for nearly a year, and I can’t wait for the lease to be up. Living with Mary is costing myself and others a fortune, and she’s driving myself and others insane. Both of us both agreed all of us would take every chance to split costs, however she’s consistently wasting money.  When Mary gets the groceries, she comes condo with imported cheese, exotic fruits, gourmet cooking oil and chocolate. When she leaves for job in the morning, she never bothers to adjust the control unit. I often come back to an empty home and find either the cooling system or heating component blasting at maximum capacity.  Last Winter season, the outside temperature was 28 degrees, and the furnace was struggling to meet demand. It kept running and running, and yet the home felt downright chilly. I finally observed a cold cold draft and discovered that Mary had opened the powder room window. She apparently wanted to let out the steam, and never considered how much all of us spend our money every month in heating bills.  When I got irritated over it, she accused myself and others of being insensitive. I don’t complain over her buying current shoes every month. I have no concern with all of the worthless stuff she orders online. But since all of us share the cost of utilities, I’m not going to let her open windows while the heating or cooling system is running.

I can tell there are plans

My lady, Mary and I had been dating for nearly several years when we moved in together.  It seemed adore a particularly great way to save on rent and utilities. We are both recently graduated from university, not making much money, and struggling to pay off student loans.  We’ve now been living together for nearly a year, and I can’t wait for the lease to be up. Living with Mary is costing myself and others a fortune, and she’s driving myself and others insane.  We both agreed we would take every occasion to split costs, however she’s consistently wasting money. When Mary gets the groceries, she comes beach home with imported cheese, exotic fruits, gourmet cooking oil and chocolate.  When she leaves for job in the morning, she never bothers to adjust the thermostat. I often come back to an empty apartment and find either the air conditioner or heating device blasting at maximum capacity. Last winter, the outside temperature was 28 degrees, and the heating system was struggling to meet demand.  It kept running and running, and yet the apartment felt downright frigid. I finally noticed a cold frigid draft and discovered that Mary had opened the bathroom window. She apparently wanted to let out the steam, and never considered how much we pay every month in heating bills. When I got miserable over it, she accused myself and others of being insensitive.  I don’t complain over her buying modern shoes every month. I have no complication with all of the worthless stuff she orders online. But since we share the cost of utilities, I’m not going to let her open windows while the heating or cooling system is running.

The air conditioning is working

One of my favorite places is my local library. It is so huge and luxurious and has all the books I could ever want. I am used to small towns. That meant that my local library was never anything all that impressive. However, this city is so massive that I get to experience a much larger library. This library boasts four stories, and it takes up almost a full city block. I spend a lot of free time in there. If there is a problem though, I would say it is how icy they run their A/C. Being it is typically scorching outside where I live, a freezing breath of air conditioning always feels awesome, at first. Then you get cooled down, but keep getting colder and colder. They run their A/C so cold, sometimes I have to put my book down just to stand in the warmth of the outside for a while. I suppose it is not all that simple to balance out the proper thermostat setting. With all the people coming in and out, it’s tough to keep your thermostat setting constant. However, because their HVAC system is overworking, I am forced to take extra clothing with me. It’s odd to have a big jacket with me in the summer of such a hot state, however, their A/C is so cold that I require it when I plan to spend several hours there. At least though, the cold A/C always feel great when you first walk in.

I put years into the work

My husband, Mary plus I had been dating for nearly 2 years when the people I was with and I moved in together.  It seemed love a actually wonderful way to save on rent plus utilities.

When he leaves for job in the morning, he never bothers to adjust the control unit. I often come back to an empty apartment plus find either the a/c or heating unit blasting at maximum capacity. Last winter, the outside temperature was 28 degrees, plus the gas furnace was struggling to meet demand.  It kept running plus running, plus yet the apartment felt downright frigid. I finally noticed a frigid frigid draft plus discovered that Mary had opened the powder room window. She apparently wanted to let out the steam, plus never considered how much the people I was with and I spend my money every month in heating bills.
