Working for the summer in heating and cooling

My dad recently told me that this summer I had to get a job or there was serious consequences. I really hated when he said things like this. Usually he just joked, but this time I think he was serious. He told me he refuses to give me any more money. He already had a summer job lined up with one of his close friends. I guess one of his friends was a manager for a local company that was in dire need for summer help. I’m assuming that it was going to be some serious hard labor job. The thinking behind having to work all summer with the heat was horrifying. But when dad says something I must obey. Plus, he said the pay was top notch. So I was excited about that. Turns out that his friend worked for a local HVAC Company only five minutes away from my house. I didn’t even figure out what HVAC stood for and was clueless about it. But it’s all about heating and cooling. I was only working there every week and there was a lot more to an HVAC business than furnace and air conditioner installation. They have to set up furnaces, HVAC zone control versions, and even rip out old HVAC units. The summer was long plus the work was hard, but I made a small fortune in my pocket. No one wants to crawl around and make an effort to fix their HVAC equipment. So they will pay a lot of money to have someone else to undertake it. Unfortunately, that other person was me. But now I’m sure happy I did it. My bank account has a small fortune for the school year, and I’m happy I have some HVAC skills.

Heating installation on rainy days

We currently live in a big section that floods a lot. Every year we seem to get hit by a hurricane or tropical storm and the neighborhood floods. It truly is horrible for most of the people in our city. This is the first hurricane season that I have gone through while owning my business. I never before connected the problems that people have with flooding. My phone has been ringing constantly  due to water damage concerns. Thankfully our current home is in a nice section that doesn’t flood. We live up on a hill and the water doesn’t touch us. I have people calling myself and others about their outdoor Heating, Ventilation, and A/C units. My Heating, Ventilation, and A/C dealer has never been busier. I really do feel awful for these people, but the dealer has been nice and it’s been keeping us busy. I’ve already had to deal with a furnace, an air conditioner, and a whole current Heating, Ventilation, and A/C zone control. Since the flood, nobody has been asking for an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tune-up. They are more worried about getting any heating and cooling at all! With the amount of work I have been getting, and because I am the only Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman in the area, I have been giving a discount. Perhaps people will love the offer and suppose of myself and others for all their Heating, Ventilation, and A/C needs. It would honestly be beneficial, too, if people bought the ductless Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit. They tend to sit up higher and have less troubles  with flooding. It is time consuming having so much job, but my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C Company is getting a lot of attention. If this keeps happening, I should be able to open a new office in the section soon and hire an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C dealer.

Probably the worst place of employment that I have ever worked at was cleaning hotel rooms. The hotel all of us have in our small town in very just a run down motel complete with actual metal keys & tube TVs. It has been the same since it was set up a few years ago. It also has an attached bar to it, which is the only bar in town. The hotel will get a lot of gross & disgusting looking people… Cleaning out the rooms they stayed in was not great. What very was bad was that there were smoking & non smoking rooms… Do other places still do that? Basically they all smell of cigarettes. I am wondering if it is the central air conditioning system or the smoke going through the walls. The smoke contaminates every hotel room. I remember while I still was there the owner tried to get rid of the cigarette smell. He installed air cleaners in the rooms that did not allow smoking. About 1 day the rooms smelled nice, but the air cleaners could not stop the stench. I suppose it is that central air conditioning system uses HVAC ducts to cool the weird rooms. The air ducts would move the smelly air into all the rooms. So it did not matter who was smoking & who was not. The smell simply moved from 1 location to the other. The cooling idea should have been changed into a ductless mini split air conditioner for each room. Every room would have their own air handler & thermostat to do the job in. That way the temperature & smell are contained in the single room. heater

heater on for me

Last weekend was homecoming for my university. I had been jumpy about it for months now and just couldn’t wait to be back with every single one of my best college friends for the two days. I kept checking the weather conditions hoping that it was going to be the best weekend environment wise. A week out, everything was looking great for the game. Mid 60’s along with sunny! However, a few days before I was going to head there, the weather changed to 40 degrees and incredibly windy. It was so upsetting and additionally I knew that it would be extremely cold standing outside looking to watch football. However, there was no way I was not going to go, so I packed all my warm clothes and headed to the mountains. When I arrived, it was already really chilly. I quickly unloaded my car and would definitely change into my pants, long sleeve shirt, and jacket. Regrettably, the jacket didn’t make it in the car somehow! I didn’t know what I would do to stay cozy. I met my friends with the tailgate and luckily one of my good friends actually had tickets for box seats, which are inside. She offered me one and I made a decision to take it. We got to the box seats and everything had been perfectly warmed because their HVAC unit was absolutely the best! They had the thermostat set to a warm 80 degrees and nobody had to wear their jacket to preserve warm. I don’t know what we have done without the possibility to enjoy that HVAC unit in addition to perfect thermostat settings. I’d probably had to have bought a new jacket!

Church HVAC is difficult

A long time ago, when Christianity was just starting up, the apostles traveled on foot across the world preaching about Jesus. Most times they weren’t allowed to bring extra sandals and also food, much less money. Their life was possibly not the best. Nowadays, though, it is not likely for a church building, especially through the south, to not have air conditioning. I know that people turn around and leave when the HVAC system is not working. People must be comfortable always. I have seen some churches in the northeastern part of the country that do not have a cooling system. They only possess a furnace or boiler to be taken as a heater during those chilly months. Just a number of decades ago, that was very common, but even just twenty or so years later, that is very rare. Even though they only really need the air conditioning a couple of months out of the year, they still have to have them. I do remember the funeral of the very prominent politician previously. His funeral was held in a mission church, and as many of these were old, it did not have air conditioning. There were tons and tons of famous celebrities and heats of state there, and these folks all fanning themselves with little hand-held fans or even just pieces of paper trying to stay cool. I remember thinking that the rich man who was getting buried needed to have donated money for an air conditioning system prior to when he died. Maybe one of the funeral attendees got so overheated that she / he did donate toward an air conditioner. I know I would have done so.

Needed more heating this winter

People that live in the sticks of the south, normally do not consider the heating system in their house. It rarely gets cold enough inside during the winter, and if it will do, a small space heater might normally work just fine. My parents do not have central heating, only our fireplace. When I went to search and buy a home, I failed to even consider heating. I was much more focused on the air conditioning. Of which, to me, was imperative. I found a lovely piece of land and house that seemed perfect. It was made of brick, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen had been built small, but it had plentiful cabinet space, and the countertops were serviceable. The flooring was brand new, and the house seemed to be in great shape. The real estate agent mentioned that the rooms did not have central heating, however, then I did not think it was an issue. Although, I regretted that decision when winter arrived. It was subsequently the coldest winter in many many years! The temperatures stayed in the 20’s and 30’s during the night time, and only warmed up to the 40’s throughout the day. This might seem mild to those through the north, but to we southerners, it was eventually a really big deal! The house was so chilly during that time, and the tiny little space heaters I had bought seemed to do little against the many cold days! That winter was your longest one I ever can remember. It would be very expensive to put in central heating in my dwelling now, so my only hope is that next year, the winter won’t be nearly as bad.
