I now have to climb into the attic whenever I change my AC filter

I am constantly learning new things to look for when looking to buy or rent an apartment, condo, or house.

Obviously there are obvious things like the condition of the appliances, whether the plumbing works, and the cost of bills and amenities.

You might be interested in the type of flooring and the number of bedrooms as well. My wife and I wanted a house to raise our family in, but anything beyond four bedrooms just seemed outrageous. Plus, we wanted to buy something that would hold its value, a house that wasn’t riddled with hidden problems and structural issues. We felt like we had found the perfect match when we came across our current home. The price was within our budget, and it had three bedrooms to house my husband, our two kids, and myself with no issues. We were told the air conditioner had recently been replaced, so we didn’t ask anything else about the HVAC, assuming that we were covered. Oddly enough, there was one small detail regarding the air conditioner that my husband and I overlooked. To change the filter, either one of us is forced to climb into the attic and stumble over rafters and cobwebs to locate the air handler with the filter tray. Although it isn’t the worst inconvenience in the world, it’s definitely a far cry away from having a filter tray in a hallway closet inside the house, or in the garage somewhere at ground level. My husband and I hate the chore of changing our air conditioner filters so much that we trade off and we do it every other time. That way, we are both sharing the setback equally.

Winter time arrived

I had the feeling that every one of us were in for a nasty surprise around late winter.

All of us live in a subtropical section where hot as well as cold temperatures rarely get below 30 degrees as well as the average high temperature for December is 68 degrees. I love the hot south over frosty winters, and give myself and others sunshine over snow any afternoon, so, here every one of us were, in the middle of winter, enjoying 68 degree hot as well as cold temperatures, all Winter time long, so far. All of us took pictures of us swimming on New Year’s Eve as well as posted it on social media. All of us were legitimately enjoying our hot Winter time as well as wanted to share our joy. Since the first afternoon of winter, I had run my a/c more than my heat. So, every one of us knew Father Frost would pay us a visit as well as pack a solid punch, however but, every one of us were ready; Our Heating as well as A/C component had just had it’s annual repair a few weeks back as well as it was relatively new, so every one of us knew it would keep our condo warm.It got cold, love every one of us knew it would. A frosty front moved in before Valentine’s Day as well as wouldn’t let go of it’s grip; Morning after afternoon it was under cold temperature when I drove my spouse to work, for over 2 weeks. I don’t love the frosty at all. I have heat in my automobile although I still rushed home to my hot condo set at my preferred temperature. I’m grateful that I can work in the heated or air-conditioned comfort of my home. Once I get home, I often don’t have to go out again until it is time to pick my spouse up from work. Considering some people don’t have heat or a/c at all, I legitimately shouldn’t complain too much about the weather.

I obtained an air conditioner for our classroom at church

I attend a certainly old-fashioned church that hates change more than anything else.

  • Obviously, I don’t feel that we should change the doctrines or beliefs of our church, but that doesn’t mean that any current piece of technology is necessarily bad… For instance, it took years to convince our church to install a furnace instead of having a woodstove to heat our entire building, the wood stove didn’t work certainly well, because there were so multiple in each building, plus nobody had time to get enough wood for the oil furnace, then both of us finally convinced them that furnaces were okay to have in the church, but we still can’t convince the older people of our church that air conditioners are okay! Most of the younger families have air conditioners, but none of the older people have air conditioners.

They only have excruciating things to say about air conditioners, plus they even teach us that air conditioners are evil. Both of us have tried to convince the older people to install a central air conditioner for our building, but they don’t want anything to do with that. Well, I don’t mind resting in the auditorium without an air conditioner, despite the fact that I teach a class upstairs, plus it is certainly toasty. Finally, I obtained a window air conditioner to help confrontation that problem, plus I don’t regret it, but some of the older people got mad, but they can get over it. They don’t have to use the air conditioner that I obtained, but they can’t get mad at other people for making their own choices with their own money.

I bought an air conditioner for my classroom at church

I attend a particularly old-fashioned church that hates change more than anything else, and obviously, I don’t guess that both of us should change the doctrines or beliefs of our church, however that doesn’t mean that any modern piece of technology is necessarily bad, for instance, it took years to convince our church to install a gas furnace instead of having a woodstove to heat our entire building.

The wood stove didn’t labor particularly well, because there were so several in each building, plus nobody had time to get enough wood for the gas furnace… Both of us finally convinced them that gas heating systems were okay to have in the church, however both of us still can’t convince the older people of our church that air conditioners are okay.

Most of the younger families have air conditioners, however none of the older people have air conditioners. They only have exhausting things to say about air conditioners, plus they even teach us that air conditioners are evil. Both of us have tried to convince the older people to install a central air conditioner for our building, however they don’t want anything to do with that, but well, I don’t mind sitting in the auditorium separate from an air conditioner, although I teach a class upstairs, plus it is particularly toasty. Finally, I bought a window air conditioner to help fight that problem, plus I don’t regret it, some of the older people got mad, however they can get over it. They don’t have to use the air conditioner that I bought, however they can’t get mad at other people for making their own choices with their own currency.

My dreams in life involve having control of the control unit

I’ve always been on the sizzling side ever since I was a kid. I don’t necessarily mean personality wise, although I am a friendly sort of person, I just mean that I am always uncomfortably sizzling while all the people else is cold, and my folks always kept the control unit in the home set to 717 degrees year-round! No matter the season, I was always hot. In the summer time I wanted more a/c & in the Winter I wished for less heating. I hope that things would change when I went to university although I found that our dorm room is just as hot & uncomfortable as our folks home used to be. My bestie bought me a single of those portable a/c systems to help me out although I don’t have the heart to tell her that it’s not a real a/c system. Those little portable a/c systems are actually just evaporators & they don’t do much at all. What I actually want is to rent our own venue where I can control the control unit & be comfortable. I never admit it when people ask me what our dreams & goals are in life. Instead I just say find a great task, get married, have kids, etc. But the truth is, our dream is to have a venue of our own where I can set the control unit down below 60 degrees & finally be comfortable for the first time in our life; Yes, I guess this entails getting a task & finishing university although I have to keep our eye on the prize: full control of the a/c & heating.

Yarn does not belong in air conditioning system

I appreciate to knit & I’m always making things for all the people that I know.

  • I have yarn stuffed all over the home although I never have enough yarn; That’s why I bought a few more skins of yarn yepterday, and however, as I was entering the home I set the skins of yarn down on top of the a/c system while I got our keys out of our trifold to unlock the door, however within minutes, the fan in the a/c unit ate an entire skein of yarn & had started on a minute a single.

I quickly ran inside & turned off the a/c system but it took multiple minutes before the compressor fan turned off, however by then yarn was all wrapped around the fan & the inner workings of our a/c unit.I thought about taking the cover off of the a/c system compressor & removing the yarn myself although I did not even guess where to start. Besides all of those safety stickers had me distraught that I might get electrocuted or cut badly doing this. I decided to call up an Heating & A/C corporation to have them come out instead. It took the serviceman a couple of afternoons to arrive but thankfully he was able to maintenance our a/c system. He carefully unwound all of the yarn & got our a/c system back up & running, yarn free. It did not cost me genuinely much although I am disappointed that multiple skins of yarn were destroyed in the process, and oh well, I guess I willhave to make another run back to the yarn store, and at least now I can knit with comfort in our air-conditioned house. I think I will make the nice serviceman a sizzling hat for winter.

 

Air conditioning system

A gas heating systems don't petrify me nearly as much as their predecessors

There are a number of examples of aged technology that extremely improved overtime.

  • So much so, that modern examples outpace those of their vintage predecessors.

Personal PCs are absolutely the easiest example of all. Nowadays a cell phone has the computational power that far exceeds what a dozen or so room-sized PCs back in the 1960s could have achieved. Although many car enthusiasts don’t like how PCs are now inextricably tied with car mechanical repair, it’s hard to argue that cars have never been safer to drive or as fuel efficient as many of the hybrids plus electric cars are by nature. But, when it comes to indoor heat, I assumed that things had changed much since my childhood. What I’m referring to is space heaters. The two of us nearly caught our home on fire once when I was 5 because our pet bumped into one that every one of us had on an end table. The heating system fell onto the carpet plus sparks shot up within sevenths; It was a close call to say the least. Thankfully, many of the space gas heating systems that you’d find at any retail store are in many cases safer than their vintage predecessors. I found a space heating system with more than one pressing safety features. First of all, it has a tip over switch on the bottom that kills power to the equipment if it starts to tip on whatever surface it is standing on. Secondly, there is an overheat detector built inside that kills power to the equipment if it is left on for too long plus the internal temperature climbs above a particular threshold. Having these more than one key safety features makes me a lot more calm over using a space heating system in my home.

I now have to climb into the crawlspace whenever I change our A/C filter

I am constantly studying new things to look for when looking to buy or rent an apartment, condo, or house. Obviously there are apparent things enjoy the condition of the appliances, whether the plumbing works, and the cost of bills and amenities. You might be interested in the type of flooring and the number of dining rooms as well. My husband and I wanted a beach house to raise our family in, however anything beyond four dining rooms just seemed outrageous. Plus, the people I was with and I wanted to buy something that would hold its value, a beach house that wasn’t riddled with hidden concerns and structural concerns. All of us felt enjoy the people I was with and I had found the perfect match when the people I was with and I came across our new home. The price was within our budget, and it had numerous dining rooms to beach house our husband, our two youngsters, and myself with no concerns. All of us were told the air conditioning system had recently been substituted, so the people I was with and I didn’t ask anything else about the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C, assuming that the people I was with and I were covered. Oddly enough, there was a single small detail regarding the air conditioning system that our husband and I overlooked. To change the filter, either a single of us is forced to climb into the attic and stumble over rafters and cobwebs to locate the air handler with the filter tray. Although it isn’t the worst inconvenience in the world, it’s absolutely a far cry away from having a filter tray in a hallway closet inside the house, or in the garage somewhere at ground level. My husband and I don’t care for the chore of decreasing our air conditioning system filters so much that the people I was with and I trade off and the people I was with and I do it every other time. That way, the people I was with and I are both sharing the pitfall equally.
