My parents finally get new HVAC

For a long time, my parents complained of bad air quality at home, but I couldn’t afford anything they wanted.

My siblings didn’t even bother with them anymore, so I decided to step up once things were right.

My timing wasn’t exactly right because where they stay, there isn’t a single HVAC company closeby, so I had to hire an air conditioning professional from the town center to facilitate the whole process. Since we couldn’t go to my parents’ home to assess the situation, we gave him estimates to work with, and he used his cooling industry experience to come up with good results. We then approached a cooling and heating provider who sold us the new HVAC equipment we wanted. Thankfully, they offered free transport and free air conditioner install courtesy of their freelance a/c repairman who resided within the same area code as my parents. Since my parents complained of poor purification, I needed to ensure that the air filter would perform optimally. Most importantly, I hoped that the new system won’t be problematic and start demanding furnace/heater repair every now and then. Weeks later, my mom shared how her friends and club members loved her home’s new feeling thanks to the new air conditioning system. To top it off, this one came with a homeowner solution so my parents wouldn’t have to worry about extra cash on any cash on maintenance, just regular service. The provider was also kind enough to assure us that we can switch to a new contractor if we are unsatisfied with our present technician’s performance.

New air conditioner install at my workplace

My boss was shocked at how much the air conditioning business had evolved over the years to the extent that he ordered a training session for the whole office employees to learn basic knowledge about every air conditioning system in the market

My boss recently hired a technician to install a new HVAC in the office. The event turned out pretty enetful and ended up with a learning session two weeks later. I applaud him for insisting ignorance is no defence and everyone should make an effort to learn something new if the opportunity presents itself. The air quality had worsened over the last few weeks. When he contacted the most affordable HVAC company around, he got more than one quote for different equipment types. Another one was raised with the quote after their air conditioning professional visited the office to assess the situation. From his explanation, he said there had been a recent development in the cooling industry that promoted the revised quote because our systems were a bit outdated. Once an agreement was reached, the heating and cooling provider supplied the equipment at a reasonable price. My boss was shocked at how much the air conditioning business had evolved over the years to the extent that he ordered a training session for the whole office employees to learn basic knowledge about every air conditioning system in the market. The air filter seemed to be the highlight of the training because it’s inspected, repaired, or replaced. We also learned about furnace/heater repair, and the procurement and the in-house a/c repairman got a special lesson on air conditioner install. Now because this was a company, we did not get the homeowner solutions package, but we were enlisted for a new package that covers commercial AC units, and a new contractor can only offer that service once it’s activated after three months.

My HVAC company made losses dealing with the local government

My pleas to hold on ended on deaf ears when the HVAC company started suspecting that I swindled them

Most new companies always try to find as much business as possible to stay afloat. Since the devolution system was introduced, council offices have been issuing the most number of tenders and priority given to new and small companies. Luckily I landed one of the tenders to supply schools with new HVAC. The deal was so overwhelming that I had to partner with an established air conditioning business I previously worked for. Once we established the number and types of units required for each school, I made an order from a wholesale cooling and heating provider and in 2 weeks I hired an additional temporary a/c repairman to assist my air conditioning professional handle the workload of air conditioner install so that the schools can have better air quality. My immediate concern was meeting the demand and worry about the furnace/heater repair and air filter later when maintenance and repairs are due. The deal was to meet the demand for 5 schools and send the first invoice. Little did I know what awaits. Payments were to be processed 3 months from the date of supply, technically, I was broke and my partner and supplier were demanding their payments. My pleas to hold on ended on deaf ears when the HVAC company started suspecting that I swindled them. They claimed swindlers like me are common in the heating industry but I was merely trying to make an honest living selling HVAC. I turned out to be the new contractor who cannot make money from his first sale. Hopefully things will turn around for me when I sell more air conditioning systems and later provide homeowner solutions as an incentive.

I was called out to fix A/C in theatre

Today I did HVAC repair in a theatre, which was interesting, because I am so used to doing houses and other basic repairs like that so this was new.

I immediately sent out to them, because apparently a play was about ready to start, when their heater started acting up.

This wouldn’t be too bad, if it wasn’t for the fact that it was below zero outside. They were close to calling off the play, so I was supposed to fix their heating unit as quickly and efficiently as possible. I didn’t get a very good start, as since the theatre is huge, I actually got lost and had to ask the manager where the HVAC machine was. Thankfully for them, it was just a thermostat glitch. If your thermostat glitches, it won’t tell the heater to kick on, and then the entire place will freeze. I was able to fix their thermostat in under 30 minutes. I stayed for the hour that they were supposed to start, and by the time that they began, it was incredibly warm in there again. I left feeling good about myself, and then after that, it was back to basic home A/C repairs and what not. But my boss told me that I did a good job, so that made my day a bit brighter, apart from making sure that the play was able to continue on. If only most of my HVAC jobs could be as easily a thermostat glitch, my job would be much easier. But I can’t complain, since I am pretty good at what I do.

I sold my old car for extra cash

Not that long ago, I purchased a new car.

I wasn’t really sure what to do with my old car, so for a while, I just let my kids use it. Then I started having troubles with my heating and cooling system. It started when the A/C wouldn’t turn on when it was supposed to, to then only turning on at random times of the day. My house started really heating up due to the lack of air conditioning, so I knew something I had to be done. I called a HVAC company, and they sent out a HVAC professional out to see what the problem was. I was hoping for something simple and easy to fix, but considering that my HVAC unit was 16 years old, my hopes weren’t very high. Sure enough, the heating and cooling technician informed me that my HVAC device was just too old to continue on, and that I would have to get a new one. I knew that a completely new HVAC installation would cost somewhere in the thousands, and since I don’t have that money on hand, I knew I would have to sell the old car to make up for it. I didn’t mind much, since I planned on selling it anyway. So I made another HVAC appointment for a few weeks from now, while I searched for someone to buy my old car. I currently have someone interested and coming to see it and give it a test drive today, so hopefully if things go well, I will have a new working HVAC component in no time.

The weather where I live is great

I love where I am currently living. As someone who was born in a really hot environment, I was used to constant A/C and brutal summers. So when I moved away to go to college, I was amazed at how different this place was, temperature wise. I have been living here a couple years now, and I thought I would’ve had a really bad summer or winter by now, but no, the weather has been great. I’ve always thought that there are three types of areas, ones with blazing summers, ones with icy winters, and ones with both. I didn’t think there was an area with neither. But it seems I have moved into an area that really doesn’t need heating and cooling. As someone who is used to boiling heat, one of the first things I looked into when I first moved here was HVAC companies. I was honestly surprised to see that there are very few locally here, and now I know why. There really isn’t much need for air conditioners and heaters here because the weather is fair. Although my apartment has both A/C and a heating system, I rarely ever turn them on. This not only saves me money, but it almost always feels good year round, which I greatly prefer over having rough summers and winters. Although I was planning on only staying here until I finish college, I am beginning to think of staying here permanently. Just going without the yearly HVAC maintenance in itself is going to save me so much money, and how I won’t have to worry about the weather much anymore.

The bad part about living in rural areas

A good example is my HVAC company

I have always loved living further away from people. I have never liked cities, and it has always confused me as to why some people actually like to live there. Sure it looks pretty at night, but the sounds that come with it are obnoxious. When I was still dating my ex, he was an important lawyer and I lived with him in the city. It was incredibly hard living in the city, all day all I heard was cars honking at each other and impatient people yelling. The walls were paper thin, so I could never get a break. Usually to help drown out the noise, I turned on my noise air conditioning system, and had a few loud box fans on. Worse yet was the construction sounds. After I had finally fallen asleep, I would wake up to construction and drilling noises right outside of my apartment. I hated constantly waking up every 30 minutes to the same ear piercing sound. Even the A/C couldn’t drown that crap out. Now that I live in a rural area, all I hear is the birds, crickets and other animals, which is quieter and much preferred. The only bad thing about living rurally is that you have to travel quite a ways to get places, and finding places to come to you is hard. A good example is my HVAC company. Thankfully the area I live in doesn’t need much cooling, but when I do, finding a HVAC corporation willing to drive all the way to you is difficult. Apart from the heating and cooling issues, living rurally is perfect

I am going to start fixing my furnace

I know that if I am able to figure out how to fix my HVAC units, then I will be saving a lot of money, and I will be able to use that money for things that I find important

I am going to start fixing my furnace soon. I know that I am going to have to be the person responsible for fixing my own furnace. I just cannot afford to keep paying HVAC technicians to fix my furnace for me. HVAC technicians charge way too much money for furnace repairs, but I don’t get mad at the HVAC technicians. I understand that HVAC technicians have to make money just like everyone else. If my furnace didn’t break down very often, I would probably hire the HVAC technician to fix my furnace. However, my furnace breaks down a lot, and I just don’t have the money to pay the HVAC technician for frequent HVAC repairs. I don’t know a lot about fixing furnaces, but a lot of that stuff comes pretty naturally to me, and I am sure that I will be able to figure out how to fix the furnace. I know that there are a lot of videos and other resources on the internet that can help teach you how to fix an HVAC unit, and I am relying on those to help me to figure out how to fix my HVAC units. I know that if I am able to figure out how to fix my HVAC units, then I will be saving a lot of money, and I will be able to use that money for things that I find important. The only thing that I need to do is jump in. Thankfully, my furnace is actually broken right now, so it is the perfect time to learn how to fix my own HVAC units. Oddly enough, I actually feel a little excited to learn how to fix my own furnace.

It would certainly be nice to have a new heater

It would certainly be nice to have a new heater.

I have been nervous about using my old heater for weeks now.

The cold weather really hit just a few weeks ago, and I have been using my space heater in my bedroom ever since then. My bedroom does not heat very well with the furnace alone, so I have to use a heater there. It would be nice if I could sleep in a cold room, but I simply cannot. I have to have the room at least sixty-eight degrees in order for me to be able to get a good night’s rest. I put a space heater in my bedroom about seven years ago, and I have not gone back since. I really love having a space heater in my bedroom. It truly helps me sleep. The only issue is that my space heater is so old. I am afraid that the heater may start a fire or something. I have heard so many horror stories about space heaters that I am almost too afraid to use one at all. I would feel better if the space heater was newer though. My heater is so old that I can’t even find another one like it on the internet. I think I may have found it the other day, and if that website was correct, my heater is like thirty-five years old. I hope that my heater isn’t that old, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was that old. I think that it is about time for me to get a new heater.

My favorite place to be is right next to my heater

My favorite place to be is right next to my heater. My friends make fun of me sometimes because I love my heater so much. I am just almost always cold. I am even cold in the summertimes every once in a while. If the temperature is below eighty degrees, I usually get chilly. If it gets below forty-five degrees, I refuse to leave my house. I do live in a pretty mild climate, thankfully. I don’t know what I would do if it actually got really cold here during the winter months. I would probably freeze to death. Because I like being so warm, I sit by my heater almost all day long. I work from my computer at home, so I purposely set up my desk right next to my heater. I get to be by my heater almost all day, and it makes me so happy. I don’t like to go out and about unless it is really warm outside. I just don’t get how people like the colder weather. It never makes any sense to me. I hope that I can always live somewhere warm. I actually would like to get a little portable heater someday. I saw a little old lady with a portable heater, and it made me want one. I don’t dare mention that to my friends because they would definitely get me one, but they would never let me live it down. A little heater may just be worth it though. I am going to think about that a little longer, but I really hope to get a little heater sometime in the next few months.
