My parents got divorced plus I got my father in the separation. I love my Mom but I can see why my mom provided him the boot. The man is super messy plus tracks mud all over the locale. He requires meat with every meal plus is odd about temperature control. In the Winter he wants the heating device to be set to 85 degrees. In the summer time he wants AC, however the air can’t blow directly on him. Rather than fighting over the control device plus trying to find a temperature control program that could work, I just invested in zone control. I had the ductless Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system anyway. I just added more indoor air handlers. Every room in the apartment got their own system plus control unit. Each room can be set to particular temperatures plus not affect the other 1, creating Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C zone control. This works out well for my Mom plus I. He can blast his room with heating or cooling depending on his mood. I get to control my home office to what I want. Since I cook I run the home office temperature. Since my Mom stays in the home office a lot, he runs that Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment. Now that I have zone control plus he is ecstatic with his temperature, the other things about him are not too bad. If I could get him to pick up plus eat veggies once in awhile, I will be pushing my mom to supply him another chance. Zone control in the apartment is awesome too. I know he would love it.

Each room can be set to unique temperatures and not affect the other one, creating HVAC zone control. This works out well for my dad and I. He can blast his room with heating or cooling depending on his mood. I get to control my bedroom to what I want. Since I cook I run the kitchen temperature. Since my dad stays in the living room a lot, he runs that HVAC equipment. Now that I have zone control and he is happy with his temperature, the other things about him are not too bad.

About 2 years ago, my partner and I bought a condo down south. Both of us got tired of the sub zero cold temperatures, endless amounts of snow and lengthy Winters in the northeast. Then our original idea was to spend only the Winter weeks down south, and then return north for the Summer. We’ve since changed our mind. In our condo in the northeast, the weather is consistently cold! During the summer, the temperature often climbs into the mid-nineties with horrible humidity. We keep the windows shut against bugs, pollen, and exhaust fumes, and rely heavily on a central cooling system. The Fall and Spring are always chilly, windy and rainy. We get hit by storms that knock down trees, branches and take out power lines. We’re then left without heating, cooling, refrigeration, running water and lights for hours, afternoons or even weeks. The Winters tend to last around 15 to 20 weeks, and even with the oil furnace running non stop, there’s simply no way to keep warm. Plus, the air becomes really dangerous, resulting in health risks and property damage. In our current condo down south, we have a heat pump. That single equipment combines both heating and cooling capacity. We rarely use it. In the area where we’re now situated, the weather is normally quite mild. We get a few and humid weeks in the Summertime and less than a dozen chilly evenings in the Winter. The condo is never damp and sticky, and there doesn’t even seem to be a big bug population. We often leave all the doors and windows wide open to feel the fresh air.
My home is severely old, we needed to change the roof for a undoubtedly long time. At times, after a windy afternoon, I’d have to pick up the shingles out of my flower gardens. During serious rain storms, I’d place buckets around the house to catch the leaks. My husband and I held off making improvements to the roof. All of us knew a simple patch wouldn’t be enough. We couldn’t even add a layer of shingles over the whole roof. Because of the age, as well as condition of the roof, there was no option, but to do a total tear off as well as new roof. The project was completed in the middle of July. The outside temperature was consistently in the upper eighties with horrendous humidity. However, we were unable to run our air conditioner for the entire time. Our house became terribly hot and sticky, as well as dirty. There was a steady flow of dust, bugs, pollen, fumes and construction debris, however all of us were undoubtedly eager for the roofers to finish, pack up and leave; I assumed that the air conditioner would be struggling for hours to bring down the indoor temperature and expected a undoubtedly high electric bill. Instead, the home was at a comfortable level within an hour. The improvement in the energy efficiency, comfort, and cleanliness of my home is absolutely amazing. The new roof has significantly reduced stress on the air conditioner and lowered my daily expenses; When the chilly Winter weather arrived, I was distraught to start up the furnace and experience the difference. The furnace no longer needs to run as long or work as much to maintain a perfectly stable home. There’s less temperature stratification, drafts, and chilly spots. While the new roof was a real fancy home improvement project, it’s absolutely going to spend money for itself.
I work at the mall for a store that sells lotions, perfumes plus hand soaps, and everyone always comments on how good of a job it must be, they always bring up it must be good to be around all the fine scents, but my job is really horrible! If the store odor were only vanilla, cinnamon or lavender that would be okay. Instead all the scents float around the store plus mix together. It makes it a potent plus horrible mixture. I always have a raging headache by the end of the each day. The scents get to me and stick to my clothes. The other workers and I are always filing complaints to the manager, but she seems so unwilling to do anything to help the problem. She says that is the experience of the store, our air quality is so polluted that the people I work with and I all frequently get very sick. I want to get an air purification plan for the store cooling system plus install it right there. When the cooling system turns on, the whole store air purifier would work to remove odors from the indoor air levels. All of us then would have no odors plus none of them mixing together all around us. I recognize that if this were to work I could work a full day and not get sick. I am sure our clients could handle the disappointment of there not being a constant odorant in the air. A little air cleaning in the store air quality would make a big difference. At the least, the whole store air purifier should start turning on towards the end of the day or morning. There should be at least some times where the store is fresh plus fine to breathe in.
The north is seeing record splitting frigid temperatures! The snow, wind plus frigid came in early and seems to be sticking around way longer than usual. This may mean the plague is coming in. Yesterday the winds in my neighborhood got to be over 70 miles. The dead trees started to lose branches in the intense winds, some of those branches knocked out a power line close to my apartment. Everybody on the street was left without any power. In the summer, not having power is not such a big deal. I can swim in my pool plus disinfect any dishes with that same water. Since it’s just the two of us we don’t legitimately need cooling and we love to make food over a fire. In the winter, no power is legitimately alarming. My loft was had no power for over 13 days. Our weather certainly has its drawbacks, not having any heating for such a long time can be dangerous plus alarming. Not only could a person freeze to death, the piping and other things could become frozen too. This would be like an extreme injury to the home. We had to hook up the generator to keep our heating unit on. It was not fun dealing with generators and furnaces because of knocked out power lines in the middle of the street. We had to deal with the generators because we needed to survive and have heating. Luckily every one of us did survive. Since we had the generators each of could take a shower and use the bathroom. That meant we could go to work the next morning. The houses that don’t have any power, I do not know how they survive. Do you think they attend public venues with heating until the power is turned back on?
When my girlfriend and I first started living together, I thought it was going to be like heaven! We always talked about moving in together, but now we were able to make it a reality. Well, it didn’t take her long to start saying we needed to change some things around. One thing she wanted to do was replace our old thermostat to a smart thermostat, but I didn’t want to waste money on a new thermostat when I had a thermostat that worked just fine! Although it wasn’t a fancy smart thermostat it was a programmable thermostat that already had our preferred settings programmed; however, she didn’t really care about the settings that I had, though, and she pointed out to me that a smart thermostat would learn our preferred settings by itself, without having to program the unit. I do have to admit, that sounded great, but I still felt it would be a waste of cash. We ended up having a big argument about this, and she picked up our baseball bat and smashed our programmable thermostat to pieces. I was astounded at her behavior and told her that was completely inappropriate. She said now we could get a smart thermostat. I then realized I did not truly know who this woman was and I broke up with her and told her to leave. I think that anybody that handles things like that, is not entirely a good fit for me. I truly loved that thermostat. I guess it’s a good thing I was able to see how she was before we got married.
We live in the South, but not that far south, so it’s not scorching warm all the time in the warm seasons. However, just the other week we got hit hard with one of the worst Winter storms ever! We had wind gusts up to 105 miles per hour which I recognize are the same as hurricane force winds. This storm was horrible for us because it caught everybody off guard. There were trees that fell over all over the place as well as a lot of damage to other people’s properties. We were lucky that every one of us did not have any property damage; however we all had to endure power outages; because of the power outage, I wasn’t able to use the heating or the A/C system. Fortunately, I have a gas heater and an oil furnace in my basement. That oil furnace cranks out a superb amount of heat! So while the rest of my home was cold, I was at least able to relax in my basement to keep warm. I even had some friends come over who were still freezing in their homes, waiting for their power to come back on. It was a great thing they were able to have their power restored after 6 hours. It really could have been so much worse as the pipes could have become frozen in people’s homes, causing major damage. It’s entirely a frightening situation, getting through a horrible storm and having to deal with the power being shut off on top of that. I was ecstatic when the power came back on because I was able to turn my heating and cooling system back on to heat my cabin back to the normal temperature.
I had ordered as well as got installed 1 of those new temperature controls on the market called a smart temperature control. They are supposed to be the next best thing in temperature controls as well as better than sliced bread the way all the heating, ventilation, as well as A/C system companies talk about them. Well, I have to say, within a few weeks of having my smart temperature control, the darn thing broke on me! I called back the local heating, ventilation, as well as A/C system company that talked me into getting the smart temperature control in the first place raging mad as well as telling them I wanted my money back! They really ended up calming me down telling me it was under warranty, as well as they would send out a certified heating, ventilation, as well as A/C system specialist to take a look at the smart temperature control on the wall as well as see if they could repair it, or if maybe I just ended up getting a faulty product all together. If it was a faulty smart temperature control, I will just get a brand new, modern, as well as even more lavish replacement since they said they would supply me my choice of a more extravagant smart temperature control if this 1 was really faulty! It turned out that was exactly the case, as well as that the smart temperature control on the wall was in fact fault from the factory, so know me, I chose the most extravagant as well as lavish 1 I could find for a replacement! That was a few months ago now. I can absolutely say, that since I have a working smart temperature control finally, I can indeed say that I see what all the fuss was about. This thing is great!
