The inside of the office is like a freezer

For the past two weeks, the inside of the office has felt just like a freezer. That heat is not working properly and the maintenance staff has worked on the problem two or three times. When I get to work in the morning, that temperature feels perfectly fine. Unfortunately, as soon as the building is packed with people, it seems like the furnace can not keep up with the demand. I had to bring a...

My mom bought a new HVAC system for the garage

My mom and dad have been renovating parts of their home ever since my little brother went to college. He was the last one of us to leave the house. My mom and dad have been thinking about the future and retirement. They decided to turn the garage into a small apartment that could easily be accessed from outside of the house. My mom and dad thought it would be a great way to make money after they...

I should have stopped after three or four beers

I went out with my friend a couple of nights ago and I drank way too much alcohol. It was a wednesday night and we were watching hockey on tv. We ran out of beer in the second period and the game was far from over with a tied score. We decided to go to the pub to grab some beers and catch the last period of the game. The pub is located in the same building as our apartment. The bar is in the...

My girlfriend and I had a nice romantic dinner planned

My girlfriend and I planned a romantic dinner to celebrate our six month anniversary. I bought her a dozen roses and I picked her up in a silver trans am that I borrowed from a friend. We drove with the top down and the warm, summer wind smelled great. We could smell salt in the air from the beach and sugar and candy from the vendors on the boardwalk. It was a beautiful night and the sun was just...

An accident has given me injuries that are taking me out of the HVAC industry

I have always been a thrill seeker in my free time. My friends and I used to build ramps that we would jump with our bikes, roller blades, and skateboards. I think I fell more times on hard asphalt in those years than at any other time in my life. But despite the ongoing injuries, my thirst for extreme sports was only just beginning. Soon my parents bought me my first dirt bike. Since we lived on...

The coffee shop was the warmest indoor air on main street

The entire country is getting slammed with an arctic blast this week. Millions upon millions of people are without power from the Canadian border all the way down to Texas. Places that rarely get snow are seeing 5 to 10 inches this week. I feel bad for all of the people freezing in their houses with electricity or running water. It’s a major catastrophe and there is no telling how many people...

My heating and cooling contractor offers 24/hour emergency repairs and service

There are few things more daunting than dealing with a major emergency in the middle of the night. I lost power at 3am on a random winter day last month. I looked outside and saw that some of my neighbor’s still had outdoor lights on at the time. As a result, I assumed that I had an isolated power issue. I spent an hour looking for emergency electricians on my phone while the temperatures in my...

The assisted living facility in my neighborhood is upgrading the HVAC systems inside

My first job as a teenager was washing dishes at a local assisted living facility. It’s like a nursing home with apartment style units for those who live independent lifestyles. The nursing home section is for people who need regular medical assistance and it was separate from the independent living apartments. However, the kitchen where I worked served food for both sections of the large...

Making my Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C bifold pretty

I am not a handy or capable person. I can’t do anything Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C, plumbing or electrical related. What I can do is paint as well as buy things. After buying my lake house I wanted to make it look modern. I knew I was limited to my skill set though, however you would be surprised at how modern a home can be made with little touches. Every single room in the house has...

I got fantastic bathroom ventilation

I have several grand budgeted for my bathroom remodel, however right now I have gutted the space down to plywood, studs as well as insulation! I also have made a system for what I absolutely want done as well as what I am hoping to get in there. I can do most of the work myself so I can save some currency… That means I can splurge in particular areas. I have already begun the shopping...
