The rotten fruit smell in the apartment

The first time I walked into my new loft, I absolutely adored it.

  • It had beautiful hardwood floors, cement countertops, in addition to everything being completely replaced.

It was perfect for me! I signed the lease right out, and everything went smoothly on move in day. My furniture fits just right. I settled in in addition to spent the first few mornings fixing up the place. On the second day I began to smell a faint rotten fruit smell, although I figured it was a fluke in addition to did not do anything about it. As the mornings went on the scent grew worse in addition to stronger. I could not get away from the odor! I searched in addition to hunted although I could not find the source of the disgusting smell. Eventually, I alerted my landlord who promised to look into it right out. I did not hear anything back from them for almost a few days! I spent as much time as possible at work or at friend’s places to avoid the odor. Eventually my landlord informed me that the aroma was caused by my neighbor leaving old fruit out. I could not believe it! Apparently, the apartments share a Heating in addition to Air Conditioning device in addition to therefore sharing ductwork in the walls and ceilings. My acquaintance had neglected to change their garbage box in addition to leaving everything there to stink up the place. To make it worse, they put the box right under the Heating in addition to the Air Conditioning vent! This means that the a/c in addition to gas furnace were sucking in rotted air.

Adding ductless HVAC to the winery

When I was just a kid, I used to think that people who were drinking wine were crazy! Who cared about whether it was a dark red or a white wine, or if it was sweet or a merlot.

  • I did not even appreciate the taste either.

As I matured I began to drink it more to relax, in addition to I started to understand how some people could find the topic so neat. The regions, colors and aromas with wine are all so different. Eventually, I even absolutely enjoyed the beverage too. Now that I am older in addition to have saved up for years. I have decided to get my own winery. Over the years I began to drink wine in addition to like the process of making it. I surprised myself with this. My new winery is absolutely awesome, in addition to it is by the family grape fields. The building I make wine in is top notch as well, not to mention the size! The main room is so large, I had to add a ductless mini split into the space to be able to control the temperature. The ductless HVAC had some trouble though. I then had to set up another indoor air handler to handle cooling such a giant space. I then added a new smart thermostat to control the heat in addition to cold temperatures while I leave the facility for days on end. Technology has been such a great thing for my winery. I can change the thermostat anywhere with wifi.

Raining in the house

However, now that the storm has lasted so long it has gotten a bit chilly in addition to I am wishing I had the Heating in addition to Air Conditioning units fixed sooner

I can not sit in my home any longer! When I first bought it 30 years ago, it was a wonderful thing that all the people were envious of. However, through the years I never changed in addition to put off fixing things that I should have had been done immediately. For the past three weeks it has been pouring rain outside in addition to inside! I did not realize it for awhile, but then I saw that my roof had holes throughout the entire thing. I have used all the pots in addition to pans I own, in addition to a couple trash buckets, to catch the water dripping from the ceilings. Another thing about this home that I can not stand is the fact that the Heating in addition to Air Conditioning plan is completely done for. The a/c stopped absolutely working around 5 years ago, in addition to I figured I could go without that. The gas furnace just broke down a few months back, although I figured because it is the hotter space of the year that I could wait a bit longer to buy a new gas furnace. However, now that the storm has lasted so long it has gotten a bit chilly in addition to I am wishing I had the Heating in addition to Air Conditioning units fixed sooner. The thermostat barely operates, I have to push the buttons super hard for them to work at all. Instead of buying an all new Heating in addition to Air Conditioning equipment in addition to a roof, I may just end up buying a new house.

A stuck HVAC jingle

Every once in awhile, a song will get stuck in my noggin in addition to no matter what I do, I absolutely can not stop singing it.

Usually they are jazz tunes on my spotify or lullabies that I sing to my kids so that they fall asleep at night.

These I do not mind so much. But, periodically music gets stuck in my head that I do not like at all. To give an example, I currently have our local Heating in addition to Air Conditioning corporations jingle stuck in my head. I never thought I would sing the word a/c so often! I guess that the commercial completed its job, as I am now thinking about how efficient my gas heater is in addition to contemplating buying a new one to save on power. However, I still dislike the song in addition to I wish I could never listen to or think about it again. The word thermostat has been sung far too many times today already. At first I thought maybe to get this Heating in addition to Air Conditioning jingle out of my head all I absolutely have to do is get a weird song stuck in there, but yet, here I am still singing about a/cs in addition to gas heating devices to no end. Not even my number one song could take the place of it! I think I am doomed to hear this song in my brain for the rest of my life. I might as well start to enjoy it, maybe I could even be the singer on the next commercial.

Trying to write a ductless HVAC song

Growing up, I always had a knack for making little tunes in addition to singing catchy music that I liked to share with those around me.

Everyone always thought I would grow up to be a singer, or at least write songs for a pop star.

That never happened, though. I absolutely did try however! I sang out at the local bars in addition to nightclubs, restaurants in addition to parties but it never went anywhere. I even got myself a manager in addition to recorded a self promoted album, but that never caught on though. Although my music is catchy, I guess I just do not have the voice to carry those songs. That is why I now write music for a living, mainly commercials, actually. I make songs for local companies to promote their products in addition to saying what they do. I usually have no issue whatsoever creating these songs, but today I just can not seem to make it work for this Heating in addition to Air Conditioning dealer. The HVAC tech owns an Heating in addition to Air Conditioning company in addition to is looking to sell more of his ductless HVAC options. Of course I have to include the word heat pump, ductless and mini split in the song as well. For the life of me I can not find a word that rhymes with mini split in addition to would also fit in the song. It took me over a month to find a word that works with a heat pump. This may be the hardest project I have ever tried to do.

Unwilling to go camping and go without heating and cooling

My boyfriend, Peter, spends all of his free time outside.

  • He loves hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking and rock climbing.

Whenever possible, he takes off into the woods and spends the entire weekend living out of a backpack. He constantly invites me to join him on these adventures. While I enjoy spending an afternoon involved in outdoor activities, I want to go home at the end of the day. I am reluctant to be at the mercy of the weather. I’d prefer not to sleep on the ground and go without running water, dishwasher, microwave and my coffee maker. I work really hard to be able to afford the latest modern technology and amenities. I spent a great deal of money to install a state-of-the-art furnace and air conditioner in my home. I have a smart thermostat that lets me make adjustments to indoor temperature through an app on my smartphone. My home is always heated or cooled to perfection. The HVAC system circulates and filters the air, keeping the living environment clean, healthy and fresh. Having such a comfortable home doesn’t tempt me to spend a weekend in a tent, bathing in a freezing cold river and cooking my meals over a campfire. I don’t want to deal with heat, humidity, rain, sudden cold snaps or bugs. After a day spent hiking, I’m sweaty and exhausted. I look forward to a shower, good meal and soft pillow. I love my bed and need my furnace and air conditioner. like knowing that the weather won’t be a factor in my ability to relax and get a good night’s sleep. If Peter wants to get away for the weekend, I would be willing to stay at a resort and eat room service.

Smart thermostat helps with hectic lifestyle

My wife and I both work demanding jobs that often require long hours.

We have four sons who all play hockey.

Whenever we’re not at work, we’re driving the boys to practices, games and tournaments. Our lives are extremely busy, and there’s rarely any free time. It’s difficult to find the opportunity to take care of necessary tasks such as grocery shopping, laundry, vacuuming and mowing the lawn. There’s definitely no extra time to handle household repairs. We need to keep our household running as smoothly as possible. One of the most helpful investments I’ve made is the upgrade to a smart thermostat. The thermostat has simplified the challenge of temperature control. I no longer need to remember to raise or lower the indoor temperature before my family leaves the house. The smart thermostat automatically adapts to our schedule to conserve energy when the house is empty. Through geofencing, it tracks our smartphones and knows when we’re on the way home. The thermostat adjusts the temperature to welcome us back to ideal comfort. The thermostat also sends me reminders to change the air filter and schedule regular maintenance. If there’s a drastic fluctuation in temperature, power outage or any problem with the furnace or air conditioner, I get notified. Because of wifi connectivity, I can access the thermostat through an app on my smartphone from virtually anywhere. This allows me to check up on things, take advantage of energy tracking and utilize the many features. The smart thermostat helps me to trim monthly costs and take better care of the heating and cooling system. With our hectic lifestyle, the new thermostat is invaluable.

I have the best HVAC system in my car for longer trips

I always think it’s hysterical when I talk to various people about road trips.

  • A lot of the time, people assume that a “long” automobile trip means anything over 2 hours.

I can’t help but smile when I compare the road trips I take to theirs. You see, every month or so I endure an automobile ride that takes anywhere from 10 and 12 hours. However, it happens to me so frequently that this is the norm in my world. Although, it seems to freak everyone else when they begin to comprehend what that experience would be like. I witness a lot of shocked faces, and phrases like “I could never!” Overall, it’s not such a bad experience once you get used to it! The key is getting yourself adjusted and comfortable in the drive, and to let go of all control of the situation. One of the most wonderful ways I’ve found to accomplish this is to have impeccable indoor temperature control systems installed into the car. There is nothing more terrible than feeling as though you cannot get the right air temperature or humidity level set up while you’re trapped in a tiny car. It can be demoralizing and anxiety inducing to be continually cool or warm. I also find that my respiratory health is at risk by the quality of our air temperature control devices, since all of the breathing air is being passed along through a series of air filters and fans. If these things are not well tested, then my lungs and I notice instantly. Sure, it is more expensive to service a vehicle’s heating and cooling system, however, I think it is worth it if you are planning on being in a car.

Settling into the drive

I always think it’s funny when I talk to new people about road trips.

Many humans seem to think that a “long” car ride means a 3 hour drive, and I can’t help but chuckle when I compare my regular trips to theirs.

You see, every month or so I endure a car ride that lasts somewhere between 8 and 12 hours. It happens so frequently that this is the norm in my world, but it seems to really freak other people out when they begin to comprehend what that experience would be like. I receive a lot of shocked faces, saying things like “I could never!” In reality, it’s not so bad once you get used to it. The key is getting yourself to just settle into the drive, and to let go of all control of the situation. One of the best ways I’ve found to accomplish this is to have amazing indoor temperature control systems installed on the car. There’s nothing worse than feeling as though you cannot get the right air temperature or humidity level in place while you’re trapped in a tiny box. It’s very demoralizing and anxiety inducing to be continually hot or cold. I also find that my respiratory health is deeply affected by the quality of my air temperature control devices, since all of my breathing air is being passed through a series of fans and air filters. If these measures are not well maintained, my lungs and I notice immediately. Sure, it costs a little money to service your vehicle’s heating and cooling system, but it is worth it in the long run if you’re going to be spending a lot of time there.
