I’ve literally been dancing since before I could crawl. Anytime my parents would play some music, I would start bobbing as well as wiggling around my crib. As soon when I was on my feet, I started to imitate my mother’s party moves. By the time I was in school, I started taking lessons. It was never a hassle or a chore for me – I really enjoyed it. Dance class was always my favorite thing. By the time I was in junior high school I had been placing in statewide competitions. I reckon you could say the flow and movement is just within my blood. I even was able to pay my way through the local university giving dance lessons to kids from all ages. Now I have my own studio at home and the HVAC system is what truly sets it apart from the others (aside from the teacher of course). Currently, the air conditioning is only in my front studio, but it’s large enough for everyone to feel it in my classes. The room without air conditioning happens to be used for storage, but I’m hoping to expand soon and employ an aid. When that time comes, the climate control system will have to be expanded to both rooms. At the moment, if I open the joining doors, the A/C is perfectly able to cool both rooms. However, any time two separate classes are occurring, I’d like to have HVAC zone control in both rooms, especially when the actual class sizes differ. Typically the air conditioner needs to be set to a cooler mode when there are more students in the class. Usually for every five students the oxygen quality gets stuffier, or at least that’s my rule.
My job is amongst the most wonderful professions in the world. I work as a wine taster! Because of this Great job I get to try typically new wines, to give feedback to wineries for on there product and to rate these individuals for my company’s records. Occasionally I get to go to do my job at the actual wineries, but overall all my work is done at my place. The wine is usually shipped straight to the step of my front door. I always have a significant line-up of new product that I have to pass through. Of course I have an outstanding wine storage cellar, but I have a small lab set-up in my house as well, where I will chemically test the products with regard to ABV, acidity, and other components. Since I do these product assessments inside my house, I also make sure to make it a priority to have the best climate control technology to keep the conditions in my house very consistent and perfect for storing my products. My HVAC system includes a few key components that is able to help me combat the outdoor air quality conditions which can have a way into the house. My favorite area of the heating and cooling system is my air conditioner. It is perhaps also the most important part of my testing system, since heat is much more serious for wine than cold. The air conditioning unit is pretty flexible which allows me to dial in the exact settings I require by means of the HVAC zone control part of the system. This also makes it in order that my personal house doesn’t necessarily require the exact same air quality through. If my husband wants his reading room to be a little warm, I can turn the air conditioning in my house off so that the area of the house is cool but still keep it on from the wine rooms.
Lately the words “one thing leads to another” is a huge and continuous theme in my life. Last month I got into a vehicle accident, coming home from the mall. The crash wasn’t my fault, so insurance was able to cover all of the damages. It was an unfortunate event, but no big deal. Then a couple of days following the accident I was having some chest pain. When I traveled to the hospital by my house to have it read through, the doctors did a few tests and found that a part of one of my lungs was bruised. I really had thought that I got away scot-free, and then I was stuck on a ventilator. Another example of my bad luck, was recently when I decided to finally paint one of our guest rooms. While painting the guest room, an unexpected storm front came through the town I live in and I was forced to close the windows. My current climate control system decided to stop working at the exact time the storm came through. So now I stuck without any working HVAC system to pass any air. It was pretty scary and horrible, as well as the whole house started to stink. I checked out the heating and cooling equipment that was down in the basement, but despite my efforts I could not figure out what was going on. So I decided to call the HVAC repair man, I needed him to come over and check it out. By the time my technician appeared to inspect the climate management system, the storm had ceased, and I was able to open up my windows again and get a decent amount of ventilation. I still apologized to the technician who came for the smell, but the HVAC technician was great about it. After about twenty minutes he was able to determine that the air handler on my HVAC system was to blame. Something had burned out so the air handler was not distributing air the way that it usually does, which left my house stinky and needing fresh air.
My brother’s first job away from college was as a stockbroker in the big city. I know, hard footsteps to trail behind, right? Anyways, he packed up and moved for the city in June, so my parents and I took a couple of days off of work to move him in. We live in a really small town in the northeast, therefore it was quite a shock for him to maneuver to such a metropolis. I’ve never been a huge lover of cities, and this trip only confirmed that to me yet again. Being in the center of a city in the summertime was among the worst experiences I’ve ever experienced. It was so hot just about everywhere. We couldn’t walk more than a few blocks without sweating profusely and being miserably uncomfortable. The whole time I was dying to get a breath of fresh air, however, you can’t find that anywhere in a big city. We kept having to stop off into little restaurants for a number of water, and just to sit down in the air conditioning for a while. Thank god for those stops, because I have no idea what I would’ve done devoid of those air conditioning breaks. It was so hot around the streets that you’d think the air conditioning in the whole city was unavailable! I was so happy to leave when that trip was over. Each night when we’d reunite from going out somewhere, the air conditioning in your hotel was on and it had never felt so good. I am just not a city girl.
I must say i hate eating in my cusine hall at school. Not only since the food is bad, but actually, it’s terrible. They only put the good food out when prospective students are visiting, probably to trick them into thinking the meals here are great. Also because there is certainly one strip of the room–the main strip–where the air conditioning is actually blowing. Your hair blows about, you start to shiver, and the worst part of all, your food gets cold. From a cold, snowy outdoor practice, you would like to come inside to a nice hot meal. But, if the dining hall is packed, you’re forced to sit where the air conditioning will totally ruin the meal. Not only that, but it’s also an incredibly great way to get ill. If it’s already cold outside, the added cold air simply just feels terrible. When you enter into dinner, especially on the rare occasion there’s good food, you want to take a moment and enjoy it. Seriously, we do pay enough for these meal plans after all. But that messed up HVAC system always prevents everyone from doing that. I have to eat freezing turkey and cold gravy as an alternative to steaming hot the way it is supposed to be served. I can totally take the heat, it’s the cold that I really, really don’t like. If I possibly could tell the school one thing as I leave, it would be to update the HVAC system from the dining hall. There should be an equal amount of heat and chilly air.
I remember thinking there was nothing greater than a day off from classes. Especially because it was snowing. Oh man I was fond of the snow and the wintry temperatures. I really used to love them. My parents thought differently though. They told me I’d eventually change my mind when I got older. I did not believe them. During the snow days, I stayed inside of and watched television and sipped hot cocoa. I might even go outside to play as well, or build a snowman. I just knew that no matter what, my house was warm and cozy. We had a fireplace that I would lay by. I would likely grab my blanket curl up. We had a great heating system as well. My parents even had radiant flooring. I would lay on to the ground on a blanket near the fireplace. You couldn’t possibly go wrong with that. It was beautifully warm. Now that I am older, I actually do seem to hate the cold and the snow. I particularly hate the snow. I knew I would feel better if the house was like my childhood home. I wanted it to contain the same warmth that I loved when I was young. Of course I had a fireplace and I had radiant flooring installed. Not only do I enjoy the radiant flooring, but my dog likes the flooring equally well. It really helps to keep the two of us warm. It adds extra heat into the air, too. So I do not mind the snow, given that I am inside curled up close to the fireplace with that radiant flooring.
My husband and me work different shifts on occasion. Sometimes it is difficult but other times it truly is a lot easier. I work the full time job, on all days of the week from 8am to 5 PM. My husband will work two weeks of nights and a couple weeks of days for his position as a security officer. At times I think that he works a lot but that’s because he doesn’t obtain Saturdays and Sundays off a lot. He’ll work four days right then get two days off and many others. His transition from nights to working days is rough. He will get very tired and grumpy. I prefer that my husband works during days but not nights. I would rather have him home with me. During the night time I get a little scared and I’m always anxious. Another night I stayed up late to watch one of my favorite movies that had been on TV. It was around midnight once i went to bed. I woke upward suddenly around 3 AM. Something startled me and I thought someone was in the house. I kept listening while I was at bed for another sound. After I did hear something I swore that there was an intruder. Towards the end I realized that my mind was playing tricks on me. I forgot that my water heater was on. Since my bedroom is located right above it you can certainly hear the big HVAC process kick on. It almost appears like someone is opening and shutting down a door. Thankfully there wasn’t an intruder, it was just my heater turning on reach the optimum temperature that was set through my thermostat.
My husband and I bought our first house about a year ago. Now that we are all settled in with our furniture and appliances where we want them, we’ve decided to start renovating within our house. We started with the bedrooms. My children were getting sick of the dull colors in their room. My son’s room had walls that were purple. He wanted his room to be blue, so we just painted his room and he loves it! We took out the old carpet that was in living room and replaced them with nice hardwood floors. The hardwood floors are easier to clean anyway, especially if any of us spill something. We learned quickly in our old house that our carpets got dirty fast. After we were done renovating the first floor in our house, we started in the basement. One of the first things that we decided to replace down there was the oil furnace. We wanted to replace our HVAC system with a gas furnace instead. We decided to do this because we were tired of how expensive it was for the cost of oil heat and the cost of electric water heating. Our oil furnace was great but we didn’t want to spend so much money and we would rather pay the cost up front. Before we any further renovations, we are calling out heating and cooling specialist to take a look and see if our house would be eligible for a gas HVAC system. Some houses in our town do not have a natural gas line running into their them. I know that our little house does but I would still want a professional opinion.
There is nothing worse than driving to your vacation destination. I thought it would be a great idea. I thought it would be a great idea because my family and I could bond more. Also, we could go sightseeing on the way. Driving in the car was supposed to be a grand old time, and we were excited that we were going somewhere warm. When we started noticing the warmer weather, the air conditioning unit stopped working in the car. We just ignored the lack of an air conditioner and continued to drive. Well, the drive kept getting longer and we realized we were lost. We had been driving for several more hours that we originally intended to. We even tried to figure out where we were located on a map. We actually had to stop and stay in some random hotel for the night. My family and I stayed there and luckily we picked the hotel whose air conditioner was completely broken. We were so exhausted from getting lost on the way and we did not mind that much. We had to take really cold showers before bed and we were set for the night. This vacation was starting to be a real downer. I did not want to get back in that car and drive the next day. I had a feeling it was going to be irritable without having an air conditioner. I was sleeping for quite awhile in the car and then I woke up I was sweating. The rest of my family was sleeping well.
This winter has brought intense cold temperatures in our city. My energy bills have been very high despite my very best efforts to winterize my home. So when a water pipe within my basement burst, I was not surprised in the slightest. The pipe had frozen up and ultimately burst all over my belongings in the basement. There was not anything at all too valuable down there, and I could get some money for the particular damage through my insurance. What I was more concerned about was the moisture that would now be invading the basement. So I purchased a substantial dehumidifier to suck up additional moisture. The last thing I needed following this mess was mold growing inside the basement. I ran this dehumidifier every day for a few weeks straight, just to make sure that the area was clear of excess moisture. I had never used one of these dehumidifier before and was skeptical about how well it would work. But the one I purchased was a champ. It wasn’t too pricey and was just the right size to prevent mold in my basement. I also assisted the dehumidifier using a wet vacuum to pick up standing water inside basement. It was a messy project nevertheless it taught a valuable lesson. I really should be storing my belongings in waterproof totes around my basement, instead of things being thrown all around. I have also installed pallets to set items on, to avoid more damage from standing water. I hope that is really the only major issue that I suffer from for awhile.
