Finally taking care of my HVAC

Sometimes, I can be a bit dense.

These afternoons, the people I was with and I are all sort of running on a continual hamster wheel, chasing our tails in an attempt to get everything done in our lives.

This means that our lives are regularly being pulled in all directions at once. I think it can legitimately be overwhelming for me to deal with. I think highly about myself if I can just get my men fed & delivered on time to where they need to be. All this technology we purchased that was supposed to make our lives easier seems to have just overrun our lives. My weekly limits are being reached, that’s for sure. Our current situation with the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C is a prime example of our failures. Our heating & cooling device is entirely on the down slope of its lifetime of productivity. But, the facts are that the people I was with and I still desperately need a few more years to save for a new 1. So, I have made a plan to do all I can to maintain some efficiency while trying to keep this broken heater going a few more years. I started by sealing every single gap, hole, crack or seam on the exterior & interior of the house for better efficiency. I even made sure the attic was sealed off & I added extra insulation for good measure. Keeping the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C treated air properly inside the lake house is a good way to reduce the unfortunate load on the heating & cooling equipment. I also had all the air ducts resealed & I hung solar drapes. Finally, I got over my fear and started programming the thermostat to work far less while I was in the peak heating hours.

Heat pump is the way to go, if you’re smart

These days, I live in a locale where the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C heat pump is considered to be king of all heating & cooling methods.

The outdoor heat is intense in this region so, the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system is on for at least 6 or 7 weeks of the year, without fail.

However, the numerous month long period in Summer is the real beast. Without good Heating, Ventilation, & A/C in their home, I don’t see how anyone could make it through the summer. I sometimes can remember my Grandparents said Heating, Ventilation, & A/C was honestly too overpriced. They had an evaporative cooler & about 24 fans running in the house. That cooling proposal of theirs was somewhat effective if you didn’t transfer at all once it got real hot. These afternoons, however, that just won’t do around our house. I have regularly felt like Heating, Ventilation, & A/C was a high priority. Viewing Heating, Ventilation, & A/C as an ongoing investment has been a mindset that has regularly paid off well for me. I just can’t imagine anything doing a better task in my home than the heat pump. Every one of us just replaced our extremely outdated Heating, Ventilation, & A/C heat pump with a new, far more technologically advanced model. This heat pump has a genuinely high SEER rating; in fact, I suppose the new heat pump has a SEER rating that is more than double what I previously had. This thing is so efficient that I don’t even panic when the utility bill lands in the mailbox. I also enjoy the fact that this Heating, Ventilation, & A/C model is much more wallet and environmentally friendly. Now, we’re saving money every day. The new heat pump is the star in this house.

Just a haircut leads to harassment

You wouldn’t even believe what I’ve been going through.

In fact, I saw the note on the front door as I pulled into the driveway and was immediately filled with rage.

This will be the third ugly note that I have received in a month. No, I am not being stalked & I don’t have a crazed neighbor who is harassing mean. These threatening letters are being stuck on my door by the HOA. They don’t even have the class to properly mail them to me. This all started a bit over a month ago when I made a terrible mistake in my yard. Sure, every one of us need standards in our community in order to be sure the property values are expertly protected. However, I belong to an HOA that is simply a bunch of nutjobs. My kid got a little insane with the hedge clippers on 1 sunny side of the house. It was 1 of those deals where a well-meaning guy is attempting to even a cut but does too much. The hedges are currently a bit too short. This has the HOA losing their shit, as my Heating, Ventilation, & A/C condenser cabinet can now be easily seen from the road. I got a phone call about this just a few afternoons after the terrible hedge was cut. The HOA common was a complete jerk on the phone & I told him several times that he could just wait numerous weeks until the hedge grows. This didn’t solve anything. Well, I have been a patient guy for a month so far & that has gotten me nowhere. My fiance is a killer trial lawyer, so, I suppose we’ll be sending some letters on our behalf.

SAD is no joke, even if you’re in the south

I have the best of both worlds now

Yes, it’s true. There is such a thing called SAD. This stands for Seasonal Affected Disorder. And, yes, I have it. I’ve had it all my life. When I was a kid, I remember that my mood would darken the more the skies darkened. My well-meaning parents just assumed that I had some sort of lake house fever & regularly just turned up the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C. This is logical to do, considering I would perk right up once the sunshine came out again as we transitioned to the Spring. But, this pattern repeated itself over & over for many years. I was finally officially diagnosed when I was away studying at university. There absolutely isn’t too much to it. I need adequate sunshine because my body has some sort of vitamin D deficiency. I finally started paying attention to how much UV light I was exposed to. When the weather wasn’t cooperative, I even used a sunshine lamp. That thing works but not like the real sun. Eventually, I chose to live in the South so I could be in the healthy sunshine much more. This was the best decision I ever made. Nowadays, I have a sunroom built on to the side of our home and there is a mini cut ductless heating & cooling proposal installed in there. I definitely would not be able to ever sit out there for 5 hours while I was stuck in the Summer separate from standard Heating, Ventilation, & A/C cooling devices. I have the best of both worlds now. There is a tremendous amount of daily sunshine that I can access nearly any time that I want. And, it is 100% Heating, Ventilation, & A/C controlled.

Heating maintenance

It’s a great community to live in

It absolutely bothers me a great deal & even frightens me that our social climate is constantly getting worse.

After decades of happy progress, the people I was with and I are right back to a whole lot of polarized hate & divisiveness.

Each afternoon, I see the absolute worst of us on display. All the anger & animosity experienced with one another is absolutely starting to drain the humanity out of me. However, obviously that would be just the worst thing I could do. During difficult times like these, compassion & caring are even more pressing. Luckily for everyone, the little neighborhood I live in is a sanctuary from all the hateful angst. Our little community absolutely embraces taking care of each other all the time & doing the right thing for those around us. In fact, I can tell you a happy story about a good example of that behavior here recently. The oldest guy in our neighborhood had here Heating, Ventilation, & A/C go out. But, none of us knew it. The Summer heat absolutely came and I went over to his lake house to mow his grass in the sun. The entire time, I noticed the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C never kicked on. This was super odd as it was well over 95 degrees outside. Finally, I knocked on his door & he told me abashedly that he hasn’t had Heating, Ventilation, & A/C for weeks. I was aghast to hear this. A good acquaintance of mine called his brother who owns an entire Heating, Ventilation, & A/C dealer. With his help & the neighbors kindly chipping in what they could, he had Heating, Ventilation, & A/C cooling within a week.

That HVAC unit never had a chance

The coolest thing that has ever happened to me is the person I get to wake up with each day.

I just can’t picture what my life would be care about without that lovely human by my side each day.

While both of us have really faced our even-handed share of challenges, our lives have been charming. The biggest overall reason is our ability to communicate, trust and respect each other. To be honest with you, it has come unquestionably naturally for both of us. All of us are unquestionably, unquestionably fortunate people. However, this doesn’t mean that both of us don’t do things that the other has to just slap their face. All of us live in the South and are retired now. I stay inside during the heat season and soak up the Heating and A/C comfort. My wifey, on the other hand, spends every warm day of the year outside walking all over the place. Actually, that is not a even-handed description. She truly loves to garden and landscape. My wifey has turned our property into an utter showcase. I get compliments from my golf buddies all the time. With that being said, they just don’t assume all that landscaping was done by many feet 2, 60 year outdated lady. It does seem a bit crazy to me if you don’t know her very well. She was honored recently with a photo spread and interview in a prestigious local magazine. I can’t tell you how proud I was. When the photographer and interviewer came to the apartment, I just watched from the windows and made every lemonade. I am starting to wish I had been outside instead. My wife decided to throw a decorative tarp over the Heating and A/C cabinet so it wouldn’t ruin the pictures. This ended up killing the Heating and A/C unit. But, the pictures were fantastic!
