Waiting for new heating and air conditioning

Now, we are stuck in a holding pattern

Selling our house was not something I wanted to do. I made this clear from the start. But, we were in a hot real estate market, making it stupid not to sell it. Now that I’m living in a rented duplex with weak heating and cooling, I want my apartment back! What makes the whole thing harder to take is that our home was perfect when we sold it. In order to get top dollar, we made some major replacements to our home. Our HVAC system was replaced with the latest technology; extremely efficient with a high SEER rating. I was stunned by how much our heating and cooling costs diminished once the new machine was installed! It had a smart temperature control with zone-controlled heating and cooling, which meant five temperature zones, each with its own control! It was something! We put the new HVAC in before the kitchen work. So, I got to enjoy it for a while before the house sold. Now, we are stuck in a holding pattern. Getting rid of things was essential and our apartment has served this purpose. But, the lack of quality heating and cooling is motivating my wife and I to find our next place, with a system as good as what we had!

Don’t forget to watch your HVAC

I try to cover all my bases all the time; sometimes too much.

Being prepared was how I was raised.

I worry about small things, but when it comes to issues around your house, nothing is small. Take heating and air conditioning, for example; I rely on HVAC to keep my family comfortable, so I try to keep our system in good shape by doing things like regularly changing the air filter. Our HVAC system is wonderful because I don’t have to worry about scheduling appointments. Our company comes out in the winter and spring, but I make sure that I’m keeping an eye on the Heating & Air Conditioning condensate – the moisture that comes from condensation in the equipment. Normally, that runs right out a drain line away from the apartment, so no problem. However, it’s smart to confirm the drain line is clear at least once or twice a year. A backup of this line could cause water damage wherever the HVAC is in the house. It’s a better safe than sorry situation, paying attention to this.

Efficient air conditioning at a good price

I program it so the temperature rises during the day and goes down in the evening, before bed.

Getting a good deal is something I’m keen on. I love getting my money’s worth on something that’s practical. That’s how it is with my car. It might not be much to look at but it’s dependable, gets great gas mileage, and I’ve gotten my money’s worth. I feel the same about my HVAC equipment. Where we live, the heating and air conditioning is a heat pump. Winters are mild and don’t require much heat. However, we sure need the air conditioning during our sizzling hot summers! So, I truly want to get the best value on my air conditioning, which includes an inspection in the spring. Having a professional perform essential repairs ensures it will operate efficiently. From there, it’s up to me. You can’t just set the temperature low and walk away. That’s wasterful. I program it so the temperature rises during the day and goes down in the evening, before bed. We have a comfortable, cool apartment to sleep in. It’s not rocket science, but it does take some attention to get the most out of your HVAC in the summer. And doing it in a way that doesn’t cost myself and others a ton of cash is a wonderful value as well.


Winter preparations are important, especially with heating and cooling

I’d rather be over-prepared than caught with my head face-planted in snow when severe winter weather hits.

That’s the thought that motivates me when preparing for the season, before it comes.

Our winters are long and filled with snow. That means it’s too late to deal with heat issues once the bottom falls out of the thermometer. So, I work over the summer and fall in order to be ready when the winter weather comes for six months. We have a wonderful reliable gas furnace that keeps our home piping hot. Of course, I have the heating and air conditioning professionals come out to inspect it before winter. If, for some reason, there was something amiss with the gas furnace, I would want time to get it fixed before having to rush. The gas furnace provides solid performance for us. We also have a supplemental heating source that serves as back-up. It’s an old, natural source of heating – a wood stove that helps to heat our home and is there in case of a power outage. I even have a hard plastic shell that goes over the HVAC cabinet for the air conditioning. This keeps falling ice and the weight of snow off the HVAC’s delicate parts and fan.
