We are saving a killing on the energy bills with the new smart thermostat

My wife has always thought of the most practical solutions to our problems. When I was telling her we needed to figure out how to save more money, she started looking into energy saving tips. While she discovered many ways to save on energy, one of the best ideas she had was to invest in a smart thermostat. At first I didn’t understand how we would save money when it was only a new thermostat,...

I started to feel the comfort from going to church with my wife

I never was so thrilled about going to church when I was young. My wife always wanted me to come to church with the children but I just never had the desire. Finally the one time she got me to come along with her, I was amazed by the pleasant temperature control settings and the wonderful air quality. I asked my wife if it was always so comfortable in her church and she said it was and I...

I remember the first car we got for our son

Our son was really excited when we got him a new vehicle. Except, it wasn’t new, it was a good 10 years old, but it was in great condition with low mileage. My son said he wasn’t trying to complain, but he pointed out that the A/C system wasn’t working. I laughed and told him that was easy to fix. I took him to the auto parts store and we got an A/C refrigerant refill kit for his car. Then...

I couldn’t stand being in the overheated courtroom with miserable temperature control settings

One thing I really can’t stand much is going to court. Unfortunately, I had to go to court for child custody complications on numerous occasions. I tried to get custody of my son, but it just didn’t work out for me in court. For starters, it was clear that they favored the mother for no other reason than she was the mother. It seems it goes this way often in most cases these days. Well, I was...

It feels great being able to run again and I really crank the A/C a lot again

When I got into a brutal car accident, my foot could not be saved. They actually had to take a good section of my shin and everything which was a miserable experience for me. Fortunately, I was able to get a surgery done where they put an artificial limb there with a rather advanced foot that is actually not too difficult to walk on. While it was a challenge in the very beginning getting used to...

I love my new HVAC and I saved so much money

When we ordered the HVAC and had it delivered, I was so excited when it finally arrived.I was glad when my brother said he wanted to help me install a new HVAC system at my house. I never even knew that would be possible, but he let me know when I let him know that I needed to get a new HVAC system soon. I was concerned about the high cost of installing a new HVAC system as I had quotes from...

The HVAC pro convinced me that a ductless mini split was the way to go

I didn’t understand how that would work when it gets cold outside, but he said the heat pumps are able to pull the heating energy from outside down to negative 5 degrees fahrenheit! I told this guy, I would have to see to believe it and he said he would put money on itI have to admit, I thought I had the perfect solution for our cooling issues in our home. Our HVAC system was old and the...

I made the mistake of trying to fix the A/C on my own when I didn’t know what I was doing

I guess I was pretty foolish for trying to fix the HVAC system on my own. There was this crazy gushing water pouring out of the HVAC unit and I wanted to fix the issue on my own. I figured it had to be something to do with the condensate pan or something or maybe there was something frozen that was thawing out, I was unsure. Regardless, I attempted to take apart the section of ductwork that...

I insisted that an HVAC professional come out to repair the leaking HVAC unit

I was thankful when I was able to find an affordable apartment, but it was crazy to see the HVAC unit in such a confined space inside one of the closets. One thing is for sure, I felt bad for the HVAC professional when he had to come out to work on the HVAC system. I had to call for help one day when the HVAC unit was leaking a bunch of water everywhere and it was starting to soak the carpet. I...

Perhaps my heater would last longer if I had it maintained regularly

I realized that I needed heating service when my gas furnace was making bizarre noises and the gas burners seemed to have trouble staying lit and moving the heated air through my home. I knew that I should have gotten my heating tune-up, but I was hoping to save some cash for the holiday season. Well, it turned out that I had to pay a huge sum of money to have my heating system repaired. This...
