How do I explain the heating and AC

If you know nothing about the heat and air conditioning systems and how it works and how should I explain heating and cooling to you in a way that makes sense? Well this is one of the problems that I ran into frequently as a heating and air conditioning technician.

I just had a client today asked me how exactly she should repair her air conditioning system, she wanted advice on exactly how it worked so that she could fix it. The problem is this was that for one, she didn’t know anything about air conditioning systems like it all. She didn’t even know that you were supposed to change an air filter! So while I tried to explain it to her I could tell that she was having a hard time grasping the information I was giving to her because she had no experience with air conditioning systems. The second reason I told her she shouldn’t be attempting to repair her own air conditioning system is because of how dangerous it could be as well as the risk of her further dam machine and if she doesn’t know what she’s doing, which in her case she didn’t. For her this is enough to dissuade her from continuing to think about repairing her AC herself and for most people this is enough to dissuade them. However this is not the case for everybody. I remember a guy repairing his own heating and cooling system himself and he decided to go and do it anyway and he ended up in the hospital after he accidentally injured himself. If there is anything that can be allergic from this lesson then it is that heating and AC system to the professionals.

I can't live here any longer

There comes a time when you are just ready for a change.

  • I guess for me it is my time because I’m ready for a change in my life.

I’ve been living in the same climate for most of my life but I’m really craving something different. For most of my life I’ve been living in a very cold climate but I’m really wanting something warm. I want to say goodbye to all this coldness and enjoy the Sun. Where I live it’s cold 8 months out of the year, and in my opinion that’s way too long. I know some people that love it here and they come here just because of the cold. I have some friends who live in more tropical humid climates and they tell me that they come here to escape the heat, they say that there’s too much heat where they live and they really want to enjoy the cold for once. I guess either side of the spectrum can be too extreme, you don’t want to be too hot and living in a hot climate all the time but at the same time you don’t want to be living in a super cold climate all the time either. The problem is when you live in a cold climate like I do, you have to deal with a lot of heating and cooling tune-ups. Well actually, it’s pretty much all heating too enough because pretty much nobody uses their air conditioning system here. In fact I know a lot of people that don’t even have an air conditioning system. Around here it’s all about the heating and furnace maintenance. The HVAC businesses make a lot of money off of heating and furnace repairs.

The climate is just too cold

I can’t wait until I can move to a much warmer climate.

In fact, I don’t even know why I continue to stay here as long as I do.

It’s just way too cold. The thing is I grew up in the northern part of the United States and so you would think that I would be used to the cold weather by now. But I guess I’m just one of those people that never did adjust to it. When I was a kid I remember going outside in the yard to make snowmen and throwing snowballs at my siblings, and now, I guess it’s just because I’m older but I can’t even go outside without putting on a heavy jacket. Not in this climate anyways. I’ve been looking at a lot of these warm southern tropical States that make great vacation spots. I’ve been dreaming for quite some time now to live in one of these places, and just say goodbye to the cold for good. Eventually it occurred to me that I need to stop dreaming about going there and actually make it a reality if it’s what I really wanted to do. So that’s what I started working towards doing, after looking for a little while I got hired out of state, and now in a few months I’ll be moving south and I’ll be saying goodbye to this cold weather once and for all. Did you know that in that area they have heating and air conditioning systems that are combined into one unit? How nice it is that they don’t even have to have a dedicated furnace! Even more reason why I can’t wait to get out of here. If I had to tell you how many times I had to have furnace repairs done to my heating system every year I’d be writing a book!

The space heater saved me

Never underestimate the power of a space heater. I absolutely love space heaters because of how warm they can become when they heat up your room, and how much cheaper they are than running your central heating system. A little bit of background, I live in a very cold climate and around here it’s very important to have a good heating system. Unless you plan to freeze during the icy cold winter months, you’re going to want to make sure that you have your heating system completely tuned up and prepared for the cold winter. Well I didn’t know it, but I had totally forgotten to have my heating system tuned up for that year. Obviously not having your heater turned up before the winter when you live in a very cold climate is a terrible idea. The problem came when I had already marked on my schedule that I had had it done. I could have sworn than I had already had a heating and a seat professional come out to my house and tune it up. I have a calendar on my wall that I Mark all upcoming events on, and I thought that I’d already marked on there that I had a heating and AC worker come out and tune up my heating system. But this was very wrong, I accidentally marked my calendar as having it done but I had never had it done. It was a case of bad memory. Unfortunately, as a result of this incident of forgetting I had my central heating system breakdown when the cold winter did come around. I woke up in the middle of the night and I found myself freezing cold. I had to warm myself up quickly and I remembered the space heater. I quickly plugged in the space heater and turned it on and within minutes the room was nice and toasty again. It saved me from having to call emergency HVAC services which was great.

I have to take a bus to get to work now

The heating and AC repair business is located on the other side of town.

My friends and I were hanging out a few months ago and we decided to go to a bar to have some drinks. I was only planning to have a couple of drinks, but the game was on and I didn’t stop drinking until I was completely drunk. Since my apartment is only a couple of miles away from the bar, I foolishly and stupidly decided to drive home. I crashed my car into a tree and a state police officer happened to be driving by. The guy stopped and gave me a field sobriety test. I failed miserably and then I had to go to the hospital and have my blood alcohol level taken. I got a DUI for driving under the influence and I was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine. I also lost my license for 6 months. Losing my license was the biggest problem. I work for a local heating and AC repair business. The heating and AC repair business is located on the other side of town. I used to drive to the heating and AC repair business near me, but now I have to take the bus. I have to get up an hour earlier than I did in the past, so I can make sure that there is plenty of time for me to get to the bus. It’s a real pain in the butt having to take the bus to my job at the heating and AC repair business. I will think twice next time I am drinking with my friends.

Work has been busy and I’m barely sleeping

Work has been extremely busy lately.

On Mondays and Tuesdays I usually have a slow day, but the last 6 months have been busier than ever.

The rest of the week is extremely busy too. Just during this month, I have made over $2,000 in commissions from the HVAC repairs and installation jobs I have completed. I also get an hourly wage that is competitive. I am barely sleeping due to all of the days that I have been working non-stop. I lay down at night and my mind starts racing. I can’t seem to shut things off when I need to sleep. I spoke with my doctor about the insomnia that I have been experiencing. The doctor told me that I need to take a couple of days away from the HVAC repair and installation company. He told me that I should think about taking a vacation. The doctor said I need to slow down, especially if I plan to stay in the HVAC repair and installation industry. My work is physically demanding and exhausting. Most of the time I don’t stop and eat lunch and now I’m not sleeping either. I’m going to end up shutting down my body, because I’m not properly sleeping or eating. I’ve been working seven days a week for two months and it isn’t slowing down now that we have hit the summer months. If I don’t take some time to relax and unwind, I’m going to end up in the psych ward at the mental hospital with a nervous breakdown.

I didn't want to the owner to know I have a dog

I have been living in my apartment for the last 6 months.

When I decided to rent the apartment, I knew that I was not allowed to have any dogs at all.

It was no big deal to follow this rule when I moved in. Then my sister decided to get rid of her dog and I did not want to go to a shelter. I told my sister that I would take the small, 20 lb dog. I have done my best to hide the dog as well as I can. I walk the dog behind the building instead of up front by the office. So far things have been good, but this week there was an emergency and I had to get a repairman in the house. I didn’t want the owner to know that I have a dog, but the emergency service technician for the air conditioner saw the dog. The emergency service technicians showed how the dog was really cute. I didn’t say anything to the guy about the fact that the dog was supposed to be a secret. I have no idea if the air conditioner technician said something to the manager of the apartment building or not. I guess I’ll find out on Monday morning. If there is a notice on my door, then I know that the manager of the apartments knows that I have a dog. I won’t be able to do anything except pay the pet fee which is $500. If that happens, hopefully I’ll be able to get my sister to pay half.

The AC repair guy was afraid of my dog

I have a small dog, but he makes a lot of noise.

He looks vicious and ferocious when he starts to bark or growl.

I have never seen him bite a person, but he has bit a couple of larger dogs. I think he gets afraid quickly and then he goes right into attack mode. I haven’t told my landlord that I have a dog yet. I have to pay a $500 non-refundable pet fee if I have a dog. There was a problem with the AC system in my rental, so I contacted the landlord. The landlord told me that she could call an AC maintenance company. She didn’t give me a time, so I wasn’t expecting anyone when they arrived. I thought that the landlord would call me back and let me know when the AC maintenance company was coming, but they just showed up on it now. I wanted the AC problems fixed, so I did turn them away. Unfortunately, my dog was out and running around when I opened the door. My dog started running right towards the AC repairman and he freaked out and started running. He was really afraid of my dog, even though my dog weighs less than 10 pounds. The repairman wouldn’t come in the house until I put the dog behind a locked door. I hope the repairman doesn’t mention that dog to my landlord. If so, I’m going to need to pay the fee or tell the landlord a lie about the owner of the dog. I could say the dog belongs to my sister and I was pet-sitting, but I hate to tell a story.

Being thrifty with the thermostat setting

Dropping it even lower when you’re not home or when you’re sleeping is also recommended

There’s nothing wrong with being financially conscious. Being thrifty is essential, particularly in these hard economic times, in which inflation is on the rise, and nobody in government seems to understand basic economic principles. In the real world, and on the individual level, spending with reckless abandon will not fix your financial problems. It will put you in debt at best, and put you on the street at worst! That’s why doing everything you can to save money on your energy bills is a very good idea. Consider your HVAC system, in particular. Is 78° really too warm a thermostat setting for the summer months? That is the ideal temperature recommended for keeping energy costs low in the worst of the summer months. If such a temperature seems unbearable to you, there are ways to make the most of it. Use your ceiling fans and other types of fans to circulate the air around your home, and the wind chill and air circulation will make it feel cooler than 78°! What if you live in a very cold climate, and you want to save money during the winter. Well, then it’s the same principle in reverse. Keep the thermostat as low as you can bear it, say about 68°. Dropping it even lower when you’re not home or when you’re sleeping is also recommended. After all, they say that the ideal sleep temperature is somewhere between 60 and 69°, and cold air actually helps facilitate sleep! The bottom line is, you can enjoy conditioned air and warmth in the summer and winter respectively, while still not breaking the bank, If you are willing to be reasonable and moderate about your comfort level.



Electrical issues with the HVAC system

There are a host of potential reasons why your air conditioning system may suddenly fail you. This is never a pleasant thing to go through. People tend to take their climate control for granted in this modern technological age. However, when something does go wrong, it is always best to get the help of a professional. The internal components may be too dirty because you have not changed the air filter in a long time, or maybe because it has been such a long time since the air ducts were cleaned or other parts of your system were cleaned. Moreover, it may be because certain parts have been jarred loose or otherwise need to be repaired in some way shape or form. Further still, maybe there is a hole that is causing your coolant to leak out. However, did you know that one of the most common HVAC problems is actually related to electrical issues? You may actually have a blown fuse or a blown capacitor. The breakers may have been tripped or there is simply damage to the wiring. In all of these cases, it is crucial that you get the help of a professional, as a professional electrician or HVAC technician will ensure that your system can be repaired and that no harm or danger will come to you or your system. So if you discover that it is an electrical issue that is causing the problem with your air conditioner or heating, you should really get the help of a professional to stay on the safe side!
