Hoping to install a cooling system

My house is super hot and sticky, and opening the windows only makes it worse. It is the midst of June and this has been a terribly hot and humid summer season. Every single day, the temperature climbs up in the mid 90s, and it only drops a few degrees at night. The humidity level is absolutely brutal, and there’s no breeze at all. I have 12 box fans running, and all they do is move heat around and stir up dust. My open windows let around dust, exhaust fumes, pollen, and dust. It is so stinking moist in the house that there is condensation on the windows, and I’m concerned with mold. I can’t keep fresh fruit in the house, because it rots within twenty-four hours and draws fruit flies. Although I take at least two cold showers per day, I’m always sweaty. I desperately want to install a central air conditioning system at my house. I called my HVAC contractor, prepared to invest a fortune to get a top-of-the-line cooling unit. Unfortunately, everybody around must have the same strategy. Between installation jobs and air conditioner repairs, my HVAC contractor cannot give me time for at least a 30 days. I don’t think I can survive a whole month of this weather with no air conditioning. I may need to move into a motel, just to have air conditioning. I’ve been spending a long time at the mall, coffee shops, and the movie theater, trying to be cool. So far, all I’ve gotten from my HVAC contractor can be a free estimate and a promise if you have a new central cooling system will greatly improve my well being.

My parents are finally getting much-needed repair jobs done on their home. They live in an outdated mobile home that my dad has not ever wanted to keep maintained. He thinks that everything looks fine, and that nobody cares what the home looks like as long as it is still standing; However, my mom put her foot down, and she insisted that she did not desire to live in a decrepit, forsaken house. She told my father that she was going to spend her own money to upgrade the house, whether he wanted her to or not. And then the next week, a parade of companies and repairmen started coming through the house, providing quotes and starting repair work. After all of the quotes and information she acquired, my mom decided that renovating the home office and bathrooms and then replacing the Heating and Air Conditioning unit were her  greatest priorities. She finally got my dad on board, and they started right away. The most difficult thing to decide on was the Heating and Air Conditioning unit. Their current unit was super old, and the central heating had not worked in years. Since they had installed that unit, there had been a good deal of innovations in the Heating and Air Conditioning market. My parents ended up deciding on getting current ductwork and a brand current Heating and Air Conditioning unit with a smart temperature control. The smart temperature control is for my dad, so he can estimate better about spending money because of the money the smart temperature control will help them save! With that major purchase out of the way, my mom and dad are looking forward to doing the other projects in the house.

Ductless HVAC in building

This period is a crazy time of year in this particular office. It is Christmas time, and we are a workplace that works on social public policy for the local diocese of the Catholic Church. You would think that we would be closed this time of year, but we will not be. When the office was organized in 1969, and ever since that time, the office closed for about 14 days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s. That is, until 2014 when we got a new boss when old boss retired. The first major change the brand new manager made was to eliminate closing up at Christmas time. It is ridiculous, I think, because I’m sure we spend more running the lights and HVAC system than we help save. Our building is three floors and each story is one HVAC zone control area. That means if anyone is working on any floor, we need that HVAC system running on that particular floor. That is the case today; almost everyone used their vacation time to stay home with their families and there are only three people on the job today. I am on the second floor, so I have the air conditioner cooling the whole story just for me. A colleague is working on the third floor and she is running the air conditioner for only herself. The second-in-command is his office on the primary floor, so he is surely running the air conditioning down there. The lot of us can’t accomplish anything because very few of us are here, and I am using the air conditioning the whole day. I think it is an awfully stupid decision to stay open the two of these weeks. The use of the HVAC system alone is plenty reason to close.

When I was a kid, I had no idea how my house was kept warm every the winter and cool every summer. We lived in the northeast, and as a matter of fact, as far as I knew, we did not have an air conditioner. I’m sure we had a furnace, though, since it would usually snow a lot every winter. Now that I am grown up and have a home in the southeast, I am mindful of the responsibilities of home ownership. A big reason is due to indoor air quality. Another is trying to reduce expenses while maintaining that good indoor quality of air. Very soon, I will be replacing the HVAC system at my house. I have a small, modest home with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. I don’t demand huge HVAC system. I’ll be calling in an HVAC company that can help me determine what is best for me, my home, and my spending habits. I would like to just flat out buy just about the most energy efficient air conditioner and heater they make, but I doubt this is at all possible with my budget. I’ve got to be reasonable. The thing to do is determine how much energy I use monthly, how much it might cost me to upgrade the HVAC system and what amount in terms of electricity I am apt to save each month by getting a new HVAC. Since I am just one person, my heating and cooling needs are not as large as those of a family.

Energy saving tips for heating

It’s common knowledge that the costliest element of your monthly electric bill is a heating and cooling system, especially the home heating system. Here in the south we ought not use our heaters as much or as often. When we do, we expect to see a sharp increase in our power bill. It does not need be that way, however. You can save money simply by helping your furnace relax a little bit and have some time off instead of working for 24 hours. Set your thermostat as low as you’re able and use sweats and quilts to stay warm. Change the air filters monthly so that they don’t force your furnace to fight dust and clutter. Don’t rely on the vent fans in your kitchen and bathrooms so much. A lot of people don’t pay those fans any attention because they believe it doesn’t cost a lot to run a small fan. True, the fan itself is not that costly, however, those exhaust fans can take the hot air that your furnace just heated and very quickly blow outdoors. Once that icky smell you want to avoid is gone, turn the exhaust fan off. Your heater will thank you. Also, an old school trick that hardly anyone does these days is open the curtains. Find the south side of your house and open the drapes on those windows. You can use the sun to help the heater out. The original solar technology! The opposite is true with summer. In summer keep those window covered closed and open the ones on the north side entrance.

Heating this winter

Most people are not very happy when the the utility bill arrives monthly. We want to have the world’s best indoor quality of air, but it can be a surprise when we come head to head with what it costs running our heating and cooling systems. It is never a bad idea to implement some savings tips, especially during the winter. The number one consumer of energy in homes in America is an HVAC system, but there are some simple and reasonable strategies to save money on your heating bill this winter. First, during the fall, make a call to your local HVAC company and arrange an HVAC system inspection. The HVAC service technician can come out out and inspect the furnace and many of the components of the heater. Whatever needs to be repaired can be before it becomes an emergency. Next, set your thermostat fairly low. Some folks tend to set the thermostat at 75 or higher, but that is unnecessary and uses a lot of energy. Be willing to wear a sweater inside your living room and use blankets whilst sleeping. Also, be sure to begin the winter with a fresh air filter and change the air filter each and every month to keep your furnace from having to work overly hard to keep you warm. Next, check around your doors and windows. Do you feel a draft somewhere? Even when they are closed, your doors and windows are able to leak heat. This, too, means your furnace has to use up more energy to keep your house warm. Get some draft protectors or caulk as necessary.
