My kid solved our HVAC heating problem

Leave it to my son to end up solving a problem that I’ve had in this house since his mom and I moved here.

He was the last to leave the house and he’s nearly out of college. But he still comes home for Christmas and that’s when he ended up really helping me out when it comes to the heating costs that have been plaguing us for the last few years. With finals and all the academic stuff he had on his schedule, he wasn’t able to get much shopping done. He was in his dorm room with the radiant heating studying too much to get that done as well. So a day or two after he got home for Christmas break, we went out shopping. My son is so efficient he had a great list and was able to knock all of that out really quickly. But then we ended up going inside the commercial HVAC of one of those big box home improvement stores. He was looking for something in particular for his uncle. But that’s when he ran across an instant read temperature gun. He picked it up and he said that this is what I needed for prepping the house. I didn’t really understand what he meant when it came to that sort of tool. But my son knows I’m always trying to tighten the house up to eliminate the loss of heating. And a tighter house ends up maximizing efficiency of any HVAC unit for sure. Once I got to thinking about the temperature gun, it made sense to me what he was saying. Now I could go all over the exterior of my house finding any place with heating from the HVAC leaking out.

Air conditioning maintenance

We take Heating & Air Conditioning for granted

There are certain times when we’re keenly afraid for our neighbors in this country.

We have so much convenience in our lives that we get irritated if our wants aren’t met instantaneously.

Of course, we’re taking stuff like residential Heating & Air Conditioning for granted completely. That’s just how we have become as a culture, but we’re not thinking about our Heating & Air Conditioning system until it isn’t working and then we get mad it’s not working. There is no sense to that sort of logic. Fortunately, not all of us are completely oblivious to how great we have it. We for one count ourselves to be fortunate just to be enjoying life in this day and age. We have a nice job inside the commercial Heating & Air Conditioning of a cool office. That produces a nice living and work we are interested in. That’s a pretty fortunate set of circumstances right there, but then, we also have a great family with our partners for life. We bought our new homes together and did some renovations to make it ours. Once the renovations were mostly complete, we contacted the Heating & Air Conditioning corporation to have them remove and replace the Heating & Air Conditioning unit. We decided to go with the latest in residential Heating & Air Conditioning along with all of the Heating & Air Conditioning technology we could get our hands on. We love this kind of stuff. But along with that actually nice residential Heating & Air Conditioning, comes the responsibility of taking care of it. So the morning after it was installed, we joined the Heating & Air Conditioning repair system in order for the Heating & Air Conditioning component to get the seasonal maintenance it needs.

Like any investment, the HVAC needs constant attention

But along with that really nice residential HVAC, comes the responsibility of taking care of it

There are certain times when I am keenly afraid for my neighbors in this country. We have so much convenience in our lives that we are angry if our wants aren’t met immediately. And of course, we’re taking stuff like the residential HVAC for granted completely. That’s just how we have become as a culture. I’m not thinking about my HVAC unit until it isn’t working and then I’m mad it’s not working. There is truly no sense to that sort of logic. Thankfully, not all of us are completely oblivious to how great we have it. I for one count myself to be very fortunate just to be enjoying life in this day and age. I have a nice job inside the commercial HVAC of a nice office. That produces a good living and a career I’m interested in. That’s a pretty fortunate set of circumstances right there. But then, I also have a great family with my absolute partner for life. My wife and I bought our home together and did some renovations to make it ours. Once the renovations were mostly complete, I contacted the HVAC company to have them remove and replace the HVAC unit. We decided to go with the latest in residential HVAC along with all of the HVAC technology we could get our hands on. We just love that kind of stuff. But along with that really nice residential HVAC, comes the responsibility of taking care of it. So the day after it was installed, I joined the HVAC service plan in order for the HVAC unit to get the seasonal maintenance it needs.

DeSoto furnace/heater repair

All it took was a new air filter

I’m working from home these days.

When I was sent home from the zone controlled HVAC of the office, I wondered if I would ever go back.

But I wondered that because I wasn’t so sure that I would keep my job. I was still pretty junior in seniority when the pandemic first started. And like with any company, the last ones in are always the first ones out. So I did take a long look around the office and soaked up that perfect commercial HVAC one more time. Sure enough, I never did go back to the office full time. But it wasn’t for the reasons that I thought initially. What happened was a surprise really because I didn’t think I would like working from home in my own air conditioning. Fortunately, I had just moved into this little house prior to the pandemic hitting. It is a starter home that needed some help but it’s a perfect size for me. Additionally, I had the latest in residential HVAC and HVAC technology installed prior to moving in. That was really the major renovation I had to undertake to make my home livable. The rest of the stuff I did was purely cosmetic and decorative. I turned the spare room into my permanent home office and that’s where I am working these days. But I also wanted to be sure I was getting the sort of quality indoor air that I once had at the old office. And all I had to do was upgrade my HVAC air filter. Instead of the cheap paper air filters that I had always used, I upgraded to a HEPA filter. The HEPA filter removes more than 99 percent of the airborne contaminants in my home.

So long to the old heat pump

I don’t know what it is about me that gets so emotionally connected to inanimate objects.

  • But I’ve been this way since I was a kid.

Like we had this awesome station wagon when I was a kid. It had amazing air conditioning as well as a pretty good stereo. When my dad sold it, I felt like my world had just been flipped upside down. And I was 12 at the time. These days, I’m feeling the same way about the heat pump. When we bought this house a quarter of a century ago, that was the first appliance we ever bought. I put so much time and energy into researching that residential HVAC. That heat pump went on to provide the heating and cooling for my family as they grew. The kids are now all off on their own or in college. So I guess it shouldn’t have been that big a shock that the heat pump was due to be replaced. The HVAC technician told me this past fall, after he had completed the heating maintenance, that the heat pump wasn’t going to make it much longer. I completely trust our HVAC professionals so I got right into figuring out what sort of HVAC equipment would replace it. My wife was awfully fond of getting the latest when it came to HVAC technology so that’s what we did. And we were really pleased with the the price we got from the HVAC company. The HVAC professionals are coming out this week to install the new HVAC unit. And I have to say I’m really excited but I’m also really sad. It’s going to be tough to say goodbye to the only heat pump this house has ever had.

HVAC sizing is essential

Sometimes I can be a bit too smart for my own good.

This comes from this obsession that I get the best deal on just about anything.

Really, I think it’s more of a competitive thing that I want to win whatever deal I’m in. Whether it’s inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office or playing tennis, I want to win. And sometimes, that really gets in the way of making good decisions. That certainly was the case when I had to replace the heat pump. Since I moved into this house, I’ve been a part of the HVAC service plan offered by my HVAC company. This is just an essential service because it allows me to not have to remember to make the HVAC maintenance appointments. Additionally, we get certain discounts and if there is a breakdown with the HVAC unit, we only pay for the parts. So when the HVAC technician told me that the heat pump was on its way out, I got right to starting the process of replacing it. But again, I tried to be a little too cute and just get the information I needed from the HVAC contractor. All I wanted was the information so then I could go out and find the residential HVAC equipment at a much cheaper price. And that’s exactly what I did. But what I didn’t realize was how essential correctly sizing the HVAC unit is. I sure got a great deal on a heat pump but it isn’t near big enough for the air volume of my home. So that ended up being a colossal problem as I had a spare heat pump on my hands.

I was hoping for a heat pump.

I couldn’t believe it when they stationed me in most northern part of our country.

It was a lovely area and a lot of space to roam during the summer.

When winter came, I thought my wife was going to take the kids and move. This was a permanent placement for me until I retired. I talked her into staying through winter, and she could leave next year, if she still wanted to. I knew she wasn’t leaving me, but the weather. The first thing I did when we got our house, was have the HVAC system checked. I wanted two working HVAC systems. If one furnace failed, I had another system to fall back on. I asked if they could install a heat pump, and the HVAC technician looked at me like I was crazy. He wanted to know if I realized how cold it got up here? I thought it was near zero, but I wasn’t sure. He laughed and told me to try minus forty degrees. That didn’t include the wind chill. He said he could install a heat pump for spring, summer, and maybe some of fall, but we could only use it for about four months a year. It got too cold for the heat pump. When I mentioned how it would be good for air conditioning, the HVAC technician laughed again. He said we might need it a week or two and wanted to know if I wanted to spend that kind of money for that length of time. He suggested a traditional HVAC system. He would include air conditioning if I really wanted it, but he was sure a few windows open with fans would be more than enough.

 

Air purification help

He was flapping his arms when he saw the HVAC van.

It surprised me when he said that grandpa owned the HVAC company until he showed signs of Alzheimer’s and that’s when he took over the company

Over the last year, I had been noticing signs that my dad was having some kind of mental problems. Dad was forgetting a lot of things and remembering things that never happened. He wanted me to call my grandma and grandpa, who had been dead for almost twenty years, and invite them for Thanksgiving. It was the beginning of a new year. I worried I was going to lose my dad if he didn’t get the right help. I knew it was time to call the doctor and have him assessed. When he stood out in the yard last week, I asked him what he was doing. He told me he had called the HVAC company to have the furnace repaired. We lived in the south and didn’t need a furnace. I asked him which HVAC company he had called. He looked down that street and said he had called the one. There was an HVAC service van coming down the street. From the moment he saw it, he was flapping his arms and waving for the HVAC service van to stop. When the driver saw him, he waved and kept going. Dad smiled and told me that his dad always slowed down and waved to him when he was in the HVAC service van. I didn’t know grandpa was an HVAC technician, so I called my uncle. It surprised me when he said that grandpa owned the HVAC company until he showed signs of Alzheimer’s and that’s when he took over the company. I thanked him for the information and when he asked why I wanted to know; I told him about dad. I knew he was tearing up; he told me that if I needed any help to let him know.

He sent me to HVAC school to save money.

He then turned and gave me another smile.

When I got out of high school, I already knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to go to HVAC school and work with my dad. It was funny, because when I was younger, I didn’t think I would ever want to be an HVAC technician. As I got older, my mind was changing. It wasn’t until dad told me he was going to send me to HVAC school to save money that I started was seriously considering a job in HVAC. I asked him how he was going to save money, and he smiled and said I was going to work for free. I thought he was kidding, or I hoped he was kidding. I would live with them forever if he never paid me. I talked to dad and asked if he was serious about me working for him for free. He laughed and gave me a look that me wonder. He laughed even harder and told me he expected me to be paid less than the rest of the HVAC technicians for the first year. He was going to have me working one on one with every HVAC technician he had so I could learn about every HVAC system, and how to work on them and installed them. He then turned and gave me another smile. When he said the rest of the plans would be ready by the end of that year, I was curious. He showed me the picture of a new sign he was going to have made for the HVAC company. He was adding &Son to the sign. He told me he wanted me to be a full partner, and I almost cried.

I wanted to market his HVAC company. (daughter for father

My father was always telling me I had to go to college and not just work for the rest of my life.

  • I thought dad had a career and didn’t just work, but I did what he asked.

I was his daughter and would do anything that would make him happy. I went to school, but instead of being a teacher, or doctor, or some other thing that would take years and more money than we could afford, I took classes for marketing. I wanted to own an online marketing company, and specialize in HVAC marketing. I thought it was the best way to honor my dad. After graduation, i marched into his office and told him I wanted a job. He asked if he was wrong, but he thought he had sent me to college. I asked if he had noticed what classes I was taking. He looked at me and shook his head. I told him I had taken marketing classes and business management. I also took classes in HVAC. I wanted to be a marketing consultant and web development business owner for HVAC companies. I knew that if he gave me a job as his marketing agent, I could grow his business within a year. I was sure of what I could do, and I had already written up a business plan for him. My dad just looked at me and then steepled his fingers in front of his mouth. I could feel him looking at me, but I was showing him my plans. The plans were strewn all over his desk, but he wasn’t looking at them. When I finally looked up at him, all he said was that I was hired.

So goodbye to the outdated heat pump

The Heating plus Air Conditioning professionals are coming out this week to install the new Heating plus Air Conditioning unit

I don’t guess what it is about me that gets so emotionally connected to inanimate objects. But I’ve been this way since I was a kid, then like every one of us had this awesome station wagon when I was a kid. It had amazing air conditioner and a pretty good beatbox. When my dad sold it, I felt like my world had just been flipped upside down. And I was 12 at the time. These days, I’m feeling the same way about the heat pump. When every one of us bought this apartment a quarter of a century ago, that was the first appliance every one of us ever bought. I put so much time and energy into researching that residential Heating plus Air Conditioning. That heat pump went on to give the heating and cooling for my family as they grew. The teenagers are now all off on their own or in school. So I believe it shouldn’t have been that large a shock that the heat pump was due to be replaced. The Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist told me this past fall, after he had completed the heating repair, that the heat pump wasn’t going to make it much longer. I completely trust our Heating plus Air Conditioning professionals so I got right into figuring out what sort of Heating plus Air Conditioning equipment would replace it… My partner was awfully fond of getting the latest when it came to Heating plus Air Conditioning technology so that’s what every one of us did. And every one of us were very pleased with the the price every one of us got from the Heating plus Air Conditioning company. The Heating plus Air Conditioning professionals are coming out this week to install the new Heating plus Air Conditioning unit. And I have to say I’m very gleeful but I’m also very sad. It’s going to be taxing to say goodbye to the only heat pump this apartment has ever had.
