The dentist demanded better HVAC

Sadly, they never did.

I’m not the brightest bulb in the box. I certainly never claim to be, but when other people are looking for advice or analysis on a topic, I’m the first to shrug my shoulders and them I’m unqualified to offer any assistance. I don’t ever want people to get the idea they should listen to me. This is one of my biggest reasons why I didn’t think much of it when my partner kept telling me I had flu symptoms. I assumed that she was right, after watching me cough, sneeze, and rub my face for many months, as the seasons changed. Surely, she knew that the weather variances and air quality affect the respiratory system, in a way I didn’t doubt. So, I proceeded through the weeks, taking OTC allergy medicine, waiting patiently for my symptoms to clear up. Sadly, they never did. I coughed, sneezed and wheezed over the winter season before the warm, fresh spring air finally arrived. As soon as my family quality air, and air temperature, there was a great improvement in my breathing. Unfortunately, when the AC came on, my sneezes started again. It took a professional respiratory specialist to tell me what the story was – not flu symptoms, but debri floating in the air ducts, air filter, and air quality control equipment! When a local HVAC technician saw how bad our indoor air temperature control system was, they were shocked that I was still standing! Now, I have clean air ducts, efficient brand new HEPA filters that I change every six weeks, as well as a good HVAC repair plan!

I didn’t call for repair

Growing up, I never had to learn how to do anything.

My dad worked on the entire house, all the way down to the everyday chores! I wasn’t responsible for much of anything until I left home and started to learn what being a “real adult” was like.

To be honest, I wish that I had learned a lot sooner about the best ways to do things, as well as the right mindset for caring for your belongings. This is one of the reasons why I’m sitting here, shivering, completely cold, without one way to manage our indoor air temperature. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a heating and cooling system before – a full temperature control, forced air gas furnace, and a home central cooling. To be honest, I never liked it. No one ever told me that I should. I learned that touching the temperature control changes the indoor air temperature. The rest of the HVAC system worked itself out. Now, as a grownup, I am well aware there’s important repairs to perform on your air conditioning and gas furnace! Unfortunately, I found this out too late, when our HVAC system completely broke down. Instead of my parents teaching me about high quality indoor air temperature management, I had to learn about it from an HVAC technician who worked on our system. They called it “toast.” I wish I had known better before I got into this frosty cold situation!

My life is too complicated

When I was younger I thought that I had everything figured out. I went to a good college and got myself a nice girlfriend. From that day onward, I figured I was a success story. We popped out a few kids and I continued to climb the corporate ladder each day at my job. My wife took care of the house and I took care of the finances. And then… my wife announced that she wanted a divorce. Everything ended one day, and I was left alone in my fancy house with my fancy heating, cooling, and ventilation system… but no one to share it with. The thermostat only operated for me, the huge furnace was running each day per my own demands, and the air conditioning system was uselessly pumping ice cold air into a vacant home most of the time. During all of this, I completely lost track of my indoor air quality control chores because my wife had always been responsible for the appliance service and maintenance appointments. I didn’t even know who to call on the morning that I woke up to find my thermostat was completely busted. I got online and started dialing random numbers, but all of the HVAC providers were located in distant cities. It seemed like I was never going to have the time or patience to get my heating system fixed. I decided in that moment, I needed someone to handle the HVAC for me. Life was too complicated on my own. I got online and found a great heating and cooling repair site, where I quickly signed up for a professional service schedule. Now, the HVAC repair shop manages my heating and cooling system for me. I never have to worry about repair or maintenance on my furnace or AC unit. And it’s a lot cheaper than another tense divorce.

I didn’t take care of the air ducts

It seems like our modern world can make life much harder than it really should be.

Didn’t we all believe that robots were going to take over the tasks that we didn’t want to complete anymore, at some point in time? Where are our robot servants to take some of the pressure off our plates? I’m growing very tired of trying to act like a human being without the help of more automated systems to make it a possibility.

This is one of the reasons why I’m a firm believer that air ducts should no longer exist, or they need to be cleaned and maintained automatically as part of the HVAC system. I know, this sounds like a space age idea, but let me tell you what happens when you’re too busy for regular heating, cooling, and air quality control system appointments and you have extensive ductwork running through your home – you get a big mess. I learned this the hard way when I let my heating and cooling machinery run wild. I never worried about the AC or the forced air furnace, and I certainly never even considered the fact that ductwork was responsible for their full functionality. That is, until it was too late. When I couldn’t get my energy efficient HVAC system to stop wasting all my cash on high energy bills each month and the temperatures were always uneven in my home, I finally called an HVAC professional. He told me that my air ducts were filled with holes and all the treated air had to be escaping out of the air channels. Furthermore, they were filled to the brim with dust and debri. He was shocked that my heating and cooling devices worked at all. Now, I’m working on making the world’s first air duct roomba to save everyone the HVAC struggle I endured.

The wait for a new heating and cooling system

I wasn’t excited about selling the house.

I made this clear from the beginning, but we were in an extraordinary housing market; it would’ve been dumb not to sell.

But now that I’m living in a rented duplex with substandard heating and cooling, I desperately want my house back! What makes it harder is the fact our home was perfect when we sold it. To get the most amount of money, my family made some large upgrades, including replacing our heating and air conditioning system. The one we installed had the latest technology; extremely efficient with a high SEER rating. I was surprised how much our energy costs went down after it was installed. It came with a smart control, and zone-controlled heating and cooling – meaning there were five independently-controlled zones in the house! It was quite the set-up. We had the HVAC installed before renovating our living room, so I atleast got to enjoy the benefits for a period before the house went up for sale. Now, our family is in a holding pattern. Down-sizing our belongings was critical and our new home has served that purpose. The lack of quality heating and cooling is motivating my wife and I to find our next home, one with a system as nice as the one we left!
