Living in very extreme conditions

I’m not saying that I would choose to live in a region which doesn’t experience the seasons, I legitimately recognize it would be awful to go through the entire year with the same climate for 52 weeks straight. However, I can tell you that it’s pretty bad to live in an area that experiences the extremes of all 4 seasons. Not only do you have to own a massive collection of clothing to be prepared for any weather, but you’d better also invest in a quality Heating and Air Conditioning system as well. There is no doubt that you will put your central heating and cooling system through its paces each & every year. I recommend you get good central heating, because nobody in their right mind has enough time to deal with space heating systems or a wood burning fireplace as their preliminary sources of heat. It’s not a terrible idea to stock up on these smaller heating options, though, because it’s also very likely that your central furnace will fail you on the coldest  days of the winter. It’s a very good idea to have a routine service and maintenance package with your local Heating and Air Conditioning company to try to prevent these unneeded complications. It’s also necessary to have powerful air conditioning for the other seasons, you could find a venue with central cooling, this is a great option for keeping your apartment continuously cool in every season. That being said, I do recognize there are a few benefits to window air conditioning units; namely, you can choose to cool just a single room if that’s where you’ll be spending all your time. No matter what you decide to do, be ready to spend a lot of money for your energy bill year round!

Living in a very extreme environment

I’m not saying that I would love to live in a region which doesn’t experience seasons, I actually think it would be difficult to go through the entire year with the same climate for 12 months straight. However, I can tell you that it’s pretty difficult to live in an area that experiences the extremes of all seasons. Not only do you have to own a huge collection of clothing to be prepared for anything, but you’d better invest in a quality HVAC system as well.

It’s a good idea to have a routine maintenance package with your local HVAC company to try to prevent these problems. It’s also entirely necessary to have powerful air conditioning. You could find a place with central cooling, which is a great option for keeping your home continuously cool in every region. That being said, I do think there are some benefits to window air conditioning units; namely, you can cool just one room if that’s where you’ll be spending time. No matter what you choose, be ready to pay out the nose for your energy bill year round!

Taking a quick nap

My early 20s are kind of a blur. It was only a few years ago, in addition to I’m in a much better venue now. But seriously, there is a phase of about 3 years where my memory is particularly hazy. It didn’t help that I was touring with a rock band for most of that time… Well, I wasn’t actually with the band, I sold merchandise in the parking lot at whichever venue was hosting them. So I followed them across the country for their whole tour, in addition to more than once! My needs were self-explanatory then, as long as I had a sizzling meal, a frosty beer, in addition to anywhere air conditioned to sleep, I was cheerful. But I particularly did rely on that undefined, no matter where I went. I can sleep sitting up in a car, lying on the floor of a gas station, you name it, however it has to be air conditioned. The sound of the rumbling in the ductworks, the frosty blasts that hit you when you are right under the air vent, I care about it, in addition to it helps myself and others sleep. I would job all afternoon in an open air tent, which had good ventilation however was always hotter than a furnace, and that didn’t bother me, as long as I had some undefined when it was time to get some rest. That was a long time ago, in addition to now I own my own home, even though I still sleep right under an air vent, in addition to turn the control device down super low every night before bed.

My early 20s are kind of a blur. It was only a few years ago, and I’m in a much better locale now. But seriously, there is a stage of about 3 years where our memory is easily hazy. It didn’t help that I was touring with a rock band for most of that time! Well, I wasn’t absolutely with the band, I sold merchandise in the parking lot at whichever locale was hosting them. So I followed them across the country for their whole tour, and more than once! My needs were easy then, as long as I had a tepid meal, a frosty beer, and somewhere air conditioned to sleep, I was blissful. But I easily did rely on that air conditioner, no matter where I went. I can sleep laying up in a car, lying on the floor of a gas station, you name it, however it has to be air conditioned. The sound of the rumbling in the air ducts, the frosty blasts that hit you when you are right under the air vent, I like it, and it helps me sleep. I would task all day in an open air tent, which had good ventilation however was constantly hotter than a heating system… And that didn’t bother me, as long as I had some a/c when it was time to get some rest. That was a long time ago, and now I own our own home, although I still sleep right under an air vent, and turn the control component down super low every night before bed.

I sleep better with HVAC

I don’t really remember my 20’s., although it really wasn’t all that long ago, but I got myself in a better place now.  There was a time in my life, that lasted about three years, and most of those memories are kind of blurred.  Part of it is probably because I was travelling with a rock band.  I wasn’t with the rock band, but I hocked their merchandise outside of the venue where they were playing.  I travelled across country along with the band.  I didn’t need very much, just a hot meal, a cold beer, and an air conditioned area to lay my head.  I loved what I was doing, but I relied on the air conditioning, and it didn’t matter where I was.  I have slept in my car, on the floor of a rest room, and many other places, as long as they’re air conditioned.  The sounds of the air going through the ductwork, the blasts of cold air that hit you as you lay beneath the air vent.   I love it, and it helps me to sleep.  I worked all afternoon outside in the open air and I had great air movement, but it was usually hotter than sitting by a furnace.  That wasn’t a problem if I had air conditioning available when I was ready for sleep.  That was several years ago, and now I own my own home.  I still have my bed beneath the air vents, and I turn the thermostat as low as I can every evening before I go to bed.

 

I can get more sleep under the air vent

I don’t remember much of my early 20’s.  I know it wasn’t all that long ago, but I’ve come a long way since then.  There are three maybe four years, where my memory is sketchy.  I was on the road with a rock band, well I wasn’t actually on the road with the rock band, I just sold a lot of their memorabilia in the parking lot where they were playing.  I made my way across the country, during their tour.  I didn’t really need much.  If I had something to eat, and an ice cold beer, I was in my glory.  I’m the type that can sleep anywhere, as long as I have air conditioning.  Giving me a back seat of a car, the floor of a rest room, and I can sleep.  The hum of the air conditioning rumbling from the HVAC ducts, and the cool air blasting over me, as I lay prone beneath the air vents, was all it took to lull me and others in my crowd, to sleep.  I spent my days in the open air, or inside a hot lobby.  It had good ventilation, but it was hot from the bodies, or the sun beating down.  I was okay with it, so long as I could sleep where it was air conditioned.  As I said, that was several years back.  I own a home now, but I still sleep where the air conditioning vent blows over me.  Every night, I turned the thermostat to its lowest setting, and I sleep like a baby.

It is so loud in here

One of my biggest annoyances when I’m looking to get some sleep is the sound of the air conditioner. I currently live in my first rental home and uses a little window unit air conditioner to cool my apartment. It does a fine job of cooling in my small studio apartment, but it certainly is as noisy as it can possibly be. Finally, I had to ask Mike, the property manager if he could do anything to dampen the sound that my unit makes when in use, but the maintenance technician was incapable of helping me at all. I think the sound in the A/C comes from it being so old. I have considered buying some sort of portable air conditioner window unit to use because I think it may be much more quiet. I can’t even begin to imagine how many hours of sleep I have lost over the obnoxious sounds emanating from the window unit. I’ve researched some and I might even purchase a ductless mini split air conditioner. They are mounted on a wall and they work as well as any other unit works. From what I’ve read, they are extremely quiet, and that is very important to me, especially after my experiences if late. I really don’t want to make such an investment right now, but I think that spending some money today would ultimately make me happier and healthier and since I will be in my apartment for awhile still, it probably would be best. My lease runs for another 8 months, and I’m sure I can’t even last half that long without some sort of a different cooling system. I know to do better research the next time I sign a lease and I would most definitely have an inspection before I purchase a home. I will take the time to thoroughly inspect the HVAC system to make sure that it is quiet and that it is in good shape. I have come to realize that this is something that I must deal with so that I can get better sleep.

I’m having a great time

The very best part of country living is not having to suffer through the noise and traffic that occurs with daily city life. I lived in an extremely large city for more than five years after I graduated college and I will never try to make a life for myself in such a city size again. It seems like I was always a nervous wreck, and never did sleep very well. Even the apartment HVAC system at my unit was far too loud and it would keep me awake through the night. I literally had to depend on my landlord to guarantee the repairs were kept up on the air conditioner so it would stay in sound shape and she was definitely not the most dependable person I’ve every worked with. I am blessed now that I own my own house, located in a rural location, and I am completely thrilled about my current lack of city life. I don’t have to tackle miles of traffic, and my heating and cooling system works like a dream while I grow old in the country. This quiet HVAC unit is the type of machine that is extremely dependable. I think my quality of life is now risen significantly since I made the decision to move away from the big city. I work from home, so I rarely even have to venture out to town except for a grocery run every so often. I love being able to make a living for myself without having to become an office worker with the regular nine o’clock time every morning. Perhaps the only downfall however, and a negative to my new setup is that I live in the middle of a big treeless field. With no trees to shade the house, I have to constantly run my air conditioner leading to a pretty high utility bill.  Like us all, I hate paying this huge bill. Still, I much prefer this inconvenience over having to deal with the noise, too many people and the fast-paced, sleepless nights that come with being in a big metropolitan area.

furnace tune-up 

These fan blades are a little dirty

I think it’s kind of funny how things can alter so suddenly. You can go to work and come home and doing this stuff has happened without everyone. Things break and things change and you are not even aware until you get home. Recently I got home from work and heard an exceedingly weird noise in my property. I actually thought someone was inside my home. I had checked the complete house and so nothing. I had to attempt to follow the noise. When I filed the tone I noticed it was from the HVAC unit outside. I know nothing much about HVAC units i absolutely had to call the HVAC company near my house. I made an appointment for them to come to my house to confirm the HVAC unit. When they open the HVAC unit they saw that there seems to be a missing fan blade. The missing fan blade will need to have come loose from the rewriter and was banging on other parts within the HVAC system. So the loose fan blade was making the different Noise Within the HVAC unit. What’s the fan blade fell off the noises had stopped. Luckily I had called my HVAC company to come consider it for me because it hasn’t been easy fix. If I had tried to fix it by myself I probably would have ruined it more. I am lucky that I’ve such nice HVAC professionals that are able to come to my house in addition to help me fix my system. The fan blade should not anymore be an issue.
