Hoping to have my HVAC system worked on

Summer is nearly here, and because of all this COVID nonsense I am 100% sure all the best summertime festival and concert tours will be canceled; I live for the summertime tunes season, and do my best to take in 10 or 12 shows every summertime, but this year there will be none, but except if you count tunisians playing at loft on a live stream, however I most assuredly do not count that! If I wanted to watch tv I would stay loft and watch tv already, however another thing that has been weighing on me in a big way is the upcoming summertime heat, and if my central Heating & Air Conditioning plan will be up to the task this year.

I try to have a full Heating & Air Conditioning inspection done every single year, and I time it to happen a few weeks before the pet days of summertime.

This year my everyday heating and cooling company is closed down, and only taking emergency calls, since this does not qualify as an A/C emergency in any sense of the word, they are not calling myself and others back. If and when the thing goes belly up and I am stuck without any A/C at all, maybe then they will take my calls. Of courseI may just be getting myself all worked up over nothing, thanks to several years worth of annual checkups, my Heating & Air Conditioning unit hasn’t gone through any issues in a long, long time; Does that mean my A/C is reliable and I shouldn’t worry about it, or does it mean i am long overdue for a major malfunction. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and let you know soon.

Summer is coming, however no HVAC checkup will be had

Summer is coming up quickly, as well as because of all this COVID nonsense I am 100% sure all the best summer time festival as well as concert tours will be canceled, but i live for the summer time songs, as well as try to take in fifteen or twenty shows every summer, but this year there will be none, however except if you count music artists playing at house on a live stream, however I most assuredly do not count that! If I wanted to watch tv I would stay home as well as watch tv already! A different type of thing that has been weighing on me is the upcoming summer time heat, as well as if our central Heating plus Air Conditioning plan will be up to the job this year. I try to have a full Heating plus Air Conditioning inspection done every year with no exceptions, as well as I time it to happen a few weeks before the dog days of summer, but this year our normal heating as well as cooling business is closed down, as well as only taking emergency phone calls! Due to the fact that this does not qualify as an air conditioning emergency in any way, they are not calling me back. If as well as when the thing goes belly up as well as I am stuck without any AC at all, maybe then they will take our calls, however of courseI may just be getting myself all worked up over nothing, thanks to various years worth of annual checkups, our Heating plus Air Conditioning unit hasn’t gone through any problems in a long, long time, and does that mean our AC is reliable as well as I shouldn’t worry about it, or does it mean i am long overdue for a major malfunction. I’ll keep our fingers crossed and let you know.

 

Air conditioner tune-up

A summertime problem with HVAC equipment

Summer is coming soon, and because of all this COVID nonsense I am 100% sure all the best summer time festivals and concert tours will be canceled. I live for the summer time rock n roll season, and try to take in 10 or 12 shows per summer, however this year there will be none… Except if you count rock n rollins playing at modern home on a live stream, although I most assuredly do not consider that! If I wanted to watch tv I would stay at my modern home and watch tv already, however a different thing that has been weighing on me is the upcoming summer time heat, and if our central Heating and A/C plan will be up to the task this year. I try to have a full Heating and A/C inspection done every year, and I time it to happen a few weeks before the pet afternoons of summer, but this year my typical heating and cooling company is closed down, and only taking emergency calls, due to the fact that this does not qualify as an A/C emergency in any way, they are not messaging me back. If and when the thing goes belly up and I am stuck separate from any AC at all, I think then they will take my calls, however of courseI may just be getting myself all worked up over nothing, thanks to a couple of years worth of annual checkups, our Heating and A/C plan hasn’t experienced any complications in a long, long time… Does that mean our AC is reliable and I don’t need to worry about it, or does it mean i am long overdue for a major malfunction. I’ll keep our fingers crossed and let you know.

New HVAC technology

It’s been a while

It has been a few years since I had the ductwork of my central heating and air conditioning system cleaned.

This was not a good choice on my part to wait so long before getting my ductwork cleaned.

Because of not getting my ductwork cleaned, my indoor air quality had been suffering a lot. The indoor air quality was getting stale and it was getting a bit dusty in my house. I knew then that it was time to call the local heating and air conditioning company to schedule a certified heating and cooling specialist to come out and clean the ductwork of my central HVAC unit. Then, I also thought it may be best to invest in some kind of lower priced indoor air cleaner. Something like a portable air purification system I think would do the trick in cleaning the indoor air quality since it was not too bad yet. It was just in the beginning phases of what could be a serious air quality issue. So the heating and air conditioning company came out and did the full on ductwork cleaning. Then once that was done, I went to the store to buy that portable air purification system I was talking about. The portable air purification system was on sale for a little over one hundred dollars which was almost half off the regular price of a portable air purification system or any type of indoor air cleaner. Once I set up the portable air purification system in my living room, within a few days my indoor air quality was great once again!

 

Zoned HVAC

Fixing the connection

I have been getting really annoyed with my wifi thermostat as of lately.

It seems to have some kind of issue with the thermostat reacting with the cell phone app.

I could not for the life of me figure out what was going on with it. I finally decided to call the local heating and air conditioning repair company and ask them if they had any clue. I was not at that point going to schedule an HVAC repair appointment if it was something simple that I could possibly fix myself. The people at the heating and air conditioning repair company asked me some questions and then helped me figure out what was going on! I did not let them know that I knew at that point, I just let them continue on and lied to them saying i’d call back to schedule the heating and air conditioning repair appointment. I did not want to let them know that they just gave me free HVAC repair advise. So it turned out that my smart phone was not configured correctly all this time! When i first bought the wifi thermostat I hit a few buttons wrong, and that is why I had been having all these connection problems. I went right into my smart phone and knew exactly what to press and what to do in order to fix the connection issue with my wifi thermostat. The wifi thermostat was then fully and finally working perfectly again once I did this. I was so glad I was slick in my phone call to the heating and air conditioning repair company.

Going south for the winter

It can get really cold back here in the north when winter rolls around.

This is why I own 2 houses.

1 here which is my main home, and then I have a house in the south where it is a little warmer to go to in the winter. I made this investment when I retired. Before I did this I used to have really high electric bills in the winter from having to overwork my central heating system. Heating is something we need wherever we are in the winter months of the year. In my home that I have in the south, I still have to use my central heating system but not as much. I always leave this house in the summer because the heat is really bad here. I did stay one time and ended up having to crank my central air conditioning system all the time which resulted in high electric bills. It’s a bit of a hassle having to bounce back and forth between the north and the south just to save money on heating and air conditioning. However, the reason I do is because I need to live in the north due to some family that I have here that may need me. If that wasn’t the case, I would probably just move to an area to where I would not have to crank my central heating or my central air conditioning all year round! But for now, going south for the winter and then returning to the north for the summer is the best thing I could possibly do.

My luck really stinks

Last winter as we were about to have what was possibly going to be the worst cold front and biggest snow storm of the entire season, would you believe that my electric furnace actually decided to go out then and there? That was really bad timing as getting the local HVAC repair company out to fix it at that time of year was next to impossible unless you used the HVAC repair company’s emergency HVAC service hotline.

I did not want to have to use the emergency heating and air conditioning repair hotline because with any emergency heating and cooling system repair, it is going to cost 3 times more than a regular HVAC repair call.

But I had no choice in the matter. I called the local HVAC repair company to try to schedule a certified heating and air conditioning specialist to come out normally to fix my broken down electric furnace. But they told me all the regul;ar HVAC appointments were booked up, and to call their emergency HVAC repair sister company. That was the only way I was going to get any kind of heating and air conditioning repair on my electric furnace before the big cold front and snow storm that was about to take place. So I did just that. The heating and air conditioning specialist was out to my house and fixed my electric furnace. But let me tell you, I paid way too much money for how quick it was fixed and the issue the electric furnace had! My luck really stinks!

Technology is getting out of hand

If you ask me all of the fancy gear that is installed in peoples houses these days isn’t nearly as cool or important as most tend to think.

  • Before you just brush off my comments as being an old guy who has it out for the new generation just hear me out.

While there is some technology that has been implemented which has done more harm than good I still hold the feeling that most of it has just made people lazy and less capable of taking care of themselves. Just a couple of days ago I drove down south to visit my grandson and his two kids for the weekend. After taking only one step into the home I felt as if I had stepped into a refrigerator because it was so cold. I asked my grandson what the HVAC contractor was thinking when he decided to install such a large air conditioning unit into a medium sized home like the one they lived in. My grandson had no idea that this A/C unit was too large or this home, and after further inspection of the unit I discovered that there was a large amount of condensation gathering around the unit. This can lead to mildew growth, water damage, and so many other things. Now if my grandson knew even the basics of HVAC repair and maintenance he wouldn’t have had this problem happen to him, but due to society’s reliance of others handling these problems he is now going to have to pay a good chunk of money to fix this. Maybe I am just old and getting grouchy, but I know without question that I hold at least some credibility with this argument.
