If I had a dime for every time one of my friends complained to myself and others about their air conditioning units, I would be a wealthy guy by now. I live in an severely boiling area of the country and the heated weather conditions conditions seem to take a heavy toll on our HVAC equipment. I keep my HVAC under warranty and make sure I schedule a technician to make sure my air conditioner gets maintained properly, as this keeps my air conditioner in the best shape possible. The HVAC professional constantly makes sure I understand how important it is to change my filter each season. Because he stresses this fact so much, I sometimes change my HVAC filter even sooner. I do not want to be like the numerous friends of mine, crying hysterically when there is no escape from the stifling heat, or like my co-workers, who spend a week’s paycheck on quarterly energy bills because their home’s air conditioning component is no longer energy efficient. I try to explain the best way I know how, that a person cannot afford to go without seasonal maintenance on their HVAC unit when you live in heated temperatures like we do. Then people recognize they will spare themselves the costs of servicing their units, only to have to pay to replace the HVAC parts later on. But then sporadically, the cost is much higher and the entire unit needs to be replaced. I do not care how you spin it, in this heat, it is wise to get an air conditioner tune-up and keep your HVAC unit under warranty.furnace installation

My little brother is a total worrier. I am fairly particular that he worries about just about everything. He frets about what he is going to wear to work each afternoon, plus he frets about more dire problems, care about his heating plus cooling system. My brother recently had a heat pump installed. Although the Heating, Ventilation and A/C business who handled the heat pump upgrade assured him that the heating plus cooling replace was a enjoyable idea plus would save him a good amount of money, our brother still upset about it. He upset that the heat pump would break plus that he would have to call for an Heating, Ventilation and A/C repair. He upset that something would go wrong with the heating plus cooling replace itself… Well, you get the picture. Fast forward to this past weekend, when our brother called myself and others in a panic. He told myself and others that his heat pump was consistently blowing cold air. I indulged him plus went over to his home to give him a sixth opinion on the heating plus cooling crisis. Since I own a heat pump myself, I quickly realized that the cold air our brother was upset about was totally normal! My brother was used to the heating process of his outdated furnace. He had not realized that a heat pump puts out less heat for a much longer time, whereas his outdated furnace put out bursts of much hotter air for shorter periods of time. Since the air the heat pump exuded was cooler than his body temperature, our brother just assumed that it was putting out cold air. Of course, he had been so upset that he had not double evaluated the temperature of his beach house with the thermostat. I was glad to put our worrisome brother at ease!

Fast forward to this past holiday weekend, when my sibling called myself and others in a total panic. He told myself and the others that his heat pump was typically only blowing cold air. I indulged him & went over to his home to provide him a second opinion on this latest heating & cooling crisis. Since I also own a heat pump myself, I quickly realized that the cold air my sibling was so worried about was totally normal! My sibling was used to the heating process of his previous oil furnace. He had not realized that a heat pump puts out less heat for a much longer time, whereas his aged oil furnace only put out bursts of much hotter air for shorter periods of time. Since the air the heat pump exuded was cooler than his body temperature, my sibling just assumed that it was putting out cold air. Of course, he had been so worried, he had not double ran tests on the temperature of his apartment with the thermostat. I was cheerful to put my silly and worrisome sibling at ease!

My little sibling is a total worrier. I do hate that he worries about almost everything. He frets about what he is going to wear to town each morning, & he frets about more dire troubles, like his heating & cooling system. This worrying sibling recently had a heat pump installed. Although the Heating & Air Conditioning company who handled the entire heat pump installation assured him that the heating & cooling update was a fantastic method & would save him a fine amount of money, he was still really too uneasy about it. He had uneasiness thinking that the heat pump would break & that he would have to call for an Heating & Air Conditioning repair again. He had uneasiness that something would go wrong with the heating & cooling update itself, as well… Well, you get the picture. Fast forward to this past week, when said sibling called myself and others in a panic. He told of how his heat pump was always blowing chilly air. I indulged him & went over to his home to supply him an eighth opinion on the heating & cooling crisis. Since I own a heat pump myself, I abruptly realized that the chilly air our sibling was uneasy about was totally normal! It was just that my sibling was only used to the heating process of his old furnace. He had not realized that a heat pump puts out less heat for a much longer time, whereas his old furnace put out big bursts of much hotter air for shorter periods of time. Since the air the heat pump was exuding felt cooler than his body temperature, he just assumed that it was putting out chilly air. Of course, he had been so completely uneasy that he had not double checked the temperature of his lake home with the new thermostat. I was cheerful to put such a worrisome sibling at ease!

Every summer I drag my mother’s air conditioner down from the attic. My mother has a window air conditioning unit which is cumbersome.  The unit is so big that it won’t fit in her window. Also, It also is so bulky and heavy that I have to bribe my little brother, Josh, into helping me move it. The cooling device must be carried down the narrowest set of stairs you can imagine.  Then we must try to fit it through a very narrow hallway with rugs that tend to catch on the AC unit. Finally, we manage to carry the AC device to our mother’s room. I find it really easy to work on air conditioners, so I set it up in the best place and then clean it, and I make sure the cooling is set just as Mom wants. When that is done, she uses it all summer long. The moment fall arrives and the temperatures turn cooler, my mother wants the AC unit removed  from her room. I agree with her because the cooling equipment takes up too much room. Then I need to ask Josh to help me again. He is much grumpier about carrying  the cooling device up a flight of stairs than he was about bringing them downstairs.. Either he or I always manages to get our hand stuck between the wall and the unit, or drop the huge air conditioning unit on our foot. Each year we promise ourselves that the next year we will get her a suitable air conditioner that will fit in her window, or we will hire an air conditioning company to install central air conditioning which is easily turned on from a thermostat.

My college roommate plus myself were excited to buy a current personal computer. Every one of us were in University, plus personal computers were active plus very new. It was easily still the 20th century, plus all of the people were easily getting in on the iPad craze. Since computer technology was new, computer repairs were absolutely atrocious. When all of us retain our current personal computer, all of us were on there 24 hours each day. After a couple of months, we spent less time because the novelty wore off. When I sat down at the computer to do a term paper for my physics class, I could tell the fan motor was not running the fan would run for a few minutes, plus automatically shut down. Even though the back of the computer tower was almost 100 degrees, the fan would not turn on at all. I was very worried that my computer would blow up, or that something would catch a fire. I decided to take the personal computer down to the help desk, in order to find out exactly what the problem was. The resistor on my circuit board had completely fried right to the metal. The iPad worker told myself plus others that our power resistor had stopped functioning. The resistor allowed far too much power plus caused a fire nearly. The special resistor is made to limit the incoming power into the machine, so that it will never become too heated at all. Since the resistor malfunction, all of us easily ended up with a spark plus a little bit of fire in the back of the computer..

My roommate and I decided to invest in a new computer. We were still in college, and computers will still pretty new. It was the 1990’s, and everyone was trying to get in on the computer craze. Since the technology was still fairly new, repairs were expensive. When we first got our new computer, we were on it all day long. After a few months, the novelty wore off and we spent less time typing on the keyboard.  When I sat down to work on a paper that was due for Chemistry, I realized that the fan motor was not running properly. It would run for about one or two minutes, and then shut off completely. It would not come back on, no matter how hot the computer became. I was immediately concerned for the hardware that sits in the back of the computer tower. It was nearly 100 degrees outside, and the computer felt sizzling hot. A couple of minutes after I finished my term paper, the computer started smoking and then I saw a tiny spark of fire in the back. I pulled the plug from the wall, and called for help. The resistor located on the motherboard of my computer, had been completely fried. The computer technician told me that one of our resistors had stopped working, The resistor was allowing too much power into the computer, and therefore, it caused a fire. The special resistors are suppose to limit the amount of power coming in and out of the electronic. When it malfunctioned, we ended up with a spark and a fire.

When I moved here to the South, I found that one of my favorite things about my new beach house was the heat pump.  I had previously always lived up north, where the weather is almost always chilly and snowing.  I had always used a forced air gas furnace and it ran for the majority of the year.  Gas furnaces tend to dry out the air excessively, which always led to problems with static electricity, chapped lips, and irritated throats.  The forced air heating method also brought contaminants into the air, irritating my allergies..  Because the warm season was so short, we didn’t bother with A/C.  My wife and I simply set up portable electric fans in the rooms and opened up the windows.  I didn’t like the safety risk of leaving the windows open, and it was frequently difficult to get to sleep because of the heat and humidity.  I really like operating the temperature control in my new beach house with an electric heat pump system.  The heat pump combines heating and cooling capacities so a perfect temperature is maintained year round.  In the warm season, it operates the same as a cooling system, extracting the heat and pumping it to the outside.  In the winter season, it reverses operation, drawing ambient heat from outside air and delivering it inside.  The heat pump doesn’t overly dry out the air when in heating mode and combats humidity in cooling mode.  It is a very  energy efficient system, operates quietly, and introduces no air contaminants.  It also features a multi-phase filtration which traps airborne particulate to improve the quality of the air.  Because the method doesn’t burn fossil fuels to create heat, there is no risk of combustible byproducts, such as carbon monoxide or fumes.
