Ever since I had my early retirement not too long ago, I have been taking advantage of my extra time to get work done savings around. Of course I have been seeking to watch my expenditures, but I keep telling myself that all of these renovations will drive up the worth of the house in the long run. I have found that I’ve been able to get great substances for cheap if I just take time to patiently skim the classifieds. There is a relatively wealthy community just north of the city where a lot of people do frequent renovations and dispose of perfectly good materials that may just need a little cleaning and then they’re pretty much new. My home HVAC system was the only thing that I was not in a position to upgrade with second hand provides. The used heating and cooling equipment that was available was tough to choose. There’s really no way to consider a furnace and predict how well it works. If it’s second hand, there really is not any way to judge HVAC equipment until it’s all set up. Installation is no easy task and it would be a lot of work designed for nothing. So the HVAC system needed to be sourced from new or remodeled components. After checking the HVAC suppliers with my area, I found that there really is lots of heating and cooling equipment on sale at the same time, it just takes a while to find it all. After all was said and done the HVAC upgrade cost about 50 % of what buying a brand-new system outright would usually expense.
I currently have to work in a different school for a teacher placement. The school that I need to go to is awful. They’re inner city and the kids there are terrible. I feel guilty saying that. I just think right now, I wouldn’t get paid enough to accomplish my job. That’s a fact. All of the teachers here agree with me for the most part. It already sucks needing to go. Another thing to say to it is that the heater’s broken in the school. We’re still able to have class though. They were going to have it fixed so it’d be okay. I was cold almost all day. It didn’t get fixed right away and it was awful. I thought it was unlawful to not provide heating for students inside a school building. I was surprised when that was happening. The kids really should’ve been sent home. We shouldn’t have had school to begin with. The school shouldn’t be open if there’s no air conditioning. I think it’s almost neglectful to kids to not provide heat. They get so cold and prevents the learning process to take place. They never get an opportunity to be comfortable in class enough to want to learn. This creates even more problems. There’s already a ton of issues. They could’ve gotten an HVAC specialist to come to the school much sooner than near the end of the school day. I feel as though the school should definitely pay much closer attention to this HVAC system they have installed. Our students and faculty count on our schools.
I took a whole week off from this job, my routine and basically my well being. I cannot wait to basically do nothing for an entire week. My plans are to get my supplies ready for when reality starts. I have to do a few things online to set my life in order. Then I want to read and relax. I wish the climatic conditions were better for my 7-day period off. I would go for runs outside and possibly swim in the pool. Instead it can be so cold that I am here stuck by my furnace. I do not mind it too bad. My furnace has been heating my home since November. Now the system is nonetheless going strong about five and a few months in. It is getting near to springtime and I do not feel I often make the transition from heating system to cooling. I think this week can be pretty good despite being on the inside. I can read my books in a perfectly controlled environment. My heating system makes sure that I have the right temperature, humidity levels and the greenest possible air. I know where my thermostat is to work the temperature, humidity and cleanliness with the air. I can get spoiled for one week and enjoy my life for once. I know transitioning back into my horrible life will never be fun. Maybe for each week I can just pretend this laying around my heating system is what i do for work. I can fool myself into thinking I got an innovative new job where I do not actually do anything all day long except sit down.
I do all my work from home for an entirely online supplier. I love my job since I never have to put on a tie and I can wear no pants for hours. I have a great set up in my place too. I set my computer and desk right by the window. I have my whole office set up where I can see the outdoors, I love it. In a bitter winter it was really nice to work while looking at the snow but not being cold. I would set my heater on high and be toasty warm while working. Come July 1st I was very excited to feel the summer breeze and warmth. I was excited because I wanted to open the window and let a summer breeze in. I was very wrong as a result of my next door neighbor. I did not realize that my neighbor had a petting zoo because I moved in during the winter when it was not set up. I live right next to the neighbors stupid petting zoo with horses, goats, and a donkey. The donkey may be the worst animal at the zoo. The donkey goes outside and makes noise all day now that it’s nice out. It wakes me up if I have my windows open. If I close my windows I become way too hot and can’t drift off to sleep. The donkey is making my home work space an awful place to be. I now require an air conditioner to keep me cool with the window shut and also to drown out the sound of the donkey. When I work I have to keep my windows closed incase I get a phone call. I do not need customers to hear the donkey braying within the background.
I’m sure my air conditioner is mad at me given it is punishing me. Sleep is one of my favorite things my cooling system is taking that from me. Last night my air conditioner decided it didn’t want to work anymore. It just would not power on and I couldn’t get it working. I do not live in a really warm climate, so that I did not consider it an HVAC emergency. I did not call the local HVAC technician to fix my unit. Thinking back on it now, I should have. I went to bed with the unit off. During the middle of the night, the air conditioning unit kicked back on randomly. It woke me up because it was so loud. It made a really loud, clunking noise and it sounded like it was about to quit forever. I eventually got used to this noise and tried to sleep again. When I finally woke up for work the following morning, I realized that I didn’t hear my cooling system. It turned off again in the middle of the night. When I went over to investigate it, I was shocked at what I came across. The air conditioner was leaking refrigerant all through the night. So my bedroom had refrigerant all over and my air conditioning unit looked so disgusting. I was going to work so I could not necessarily clean it up properly. I then had to go home to refrigerant sitting in my house. I cleaned it as best as I could, but now I am concerned with getting mold in my home.
