HVAC technician refused to provide me service

HVAC technician refused to provide me service

The other day I was completely shocked when my heating, cooling, and ventilation specialist told me that he refused to upgrade my cooling system.

Obviously, it’s rather confusing when a professional Heating and Air Conditioning worker does not want to earn money doing professional Heating and Air Conditioning worker jobs.

It was bewildering to me that I could call the Heating and Air Conditioning and air quality control repair shop and request a service appointment only to be turned away by my official air quality control worker, when I finally got him on the phone I asked my favorite heating and cooling specialist what was up with his refusal to come service my a/c device or install a new cooling system, and he told me sincerely that I needed to stop fiddling with my indoor A/C unit. My central cooling system had already been through every professional repair, diagnostic appointment, and troubleshooting service that they could offer. He did not think that I needed to install a new a/c unit to help with the air quality and temperature. In fact, my Heating and Air Conditioning worker was completely honest that I simply needed to purchase a cheap dehumidifier at my local hardware store. He told me that my problem wasn’t the a/c device but the amount of indoor humidity I was experiencing each day. If I really wanted to be more comfortable inside my house I should simply buy a dehumidifier or two. After his recommendation I quickly bought dehumidification devices, although I made sure to get three commercial units, just in case. Huh… maybe I am a bit over the top with my indoor air handling devices.

Getting through a difficult breakup

Getting through a difficult breakup

If I am being honest with you I have been putting on a strong front for the past several months while I have been feeling rather weak inside.

I did not realize that I was going to be so badly impacted by this most recent breakup that I went through but I have been rather heartbroken to be honest with myself.

I don’t want to show anybody that I am in pain so I’ve been putting on a smiling face and pretending like it doesn’t matter. I’ve even been going out of my way to talk about the downside of things that I remember from our relationship, and one of my biggest complaints was spending time at his house on a regular basis, the place was old, dingy, and dank. It never felt like he had an indoor thermostat whatsoever. The existing heating and cooling setup was at least twenty years old and it acted like it was a hundred, and whenever the two of us spent time in his home we were burning hot and perspiring. The air conditioning unit barely put out any high-quality indoor air no matter how low you turned the thermostat settings. It was bad enough that the two of us were continually choking on hot and humid indoor air. It was even worse that the existing air conditioning unit was so loud that it literally kept me up at night, and several times while the two of us were sleeping the old A/C component would start humming and banging like someone was trying to break into the house. I never got used to the sound of the decrepit air conditioning unit when the two of us were together, however now that we’re broken up, I even kind of miss the familiar sounds of the busted A/C system.

If I’m being completely honest with you I have been putting on a strong front for the past several weeks while I have been feeling rather weak inside.

The existing heating and cooling setup was at least twenty years old and it acted like it was a hundred. Whenever we spent time in his lake house we were burning hot and sweating. The a/c unit barely turned out any high-quality indoor air no matter how low you turned the temperature control settings. It was bad enough that we were continually choking on hot and humid indoor air. It was even worse that the existing a/c plan was so loud that it literally kept me up at night, several times while we were sleeping the old AC unit would start humming and banging like someone was trying to break into the apartment. I never got used to the sound of the decrepit a/c plan when we were together, but now that we’re broken up, I even kind of miss the reassuring sounds of the busted AC system.

If I’m being honest with you I have been putting on a strong front for the past several weeks while I have been feeling rather weak inside, but I did not realize that I was going to be so negatively impacted by this most recent breakup that I went through even though I have been rather heartbroken if I’m being honest with myself. I do not want to show anybody that I’m in pain so I’ve been putting on a smiling face and pretending that it doesn’t matter. I’ve even been going out of my way to talk about the downside of things that I remember from our relationship, and one of my biggest complaints was spending time at his apartment on a regular basis. The apartment was old, dingy, and dank. It never felt like he had a good working thermostat whatsoever. The existing heating and cooling setup was at least twenty years old and it acted like it was a hundred, and whenever both of us spent time in his apartment we were burning hot and dripping with sweat. The a/c unit wouldn’t put out any high-quality indoor air no matter how low you turned the thermostat settings. It was awful enough that both of us were continually choking on hot and humid indoor air. It was even worse that the existing a/c unit was so loud that it literally kept me up at night, and several times while both of us were sleeping the outdated AC machine would start humming and banging like someone was trying to break into the apartment. I never got used to the sound of the decrepit a/c unit when both of us were together! Now that we’re broken up, I even kind of miss the familiar sounds of the busted AC system.

I was trying to save on maintenance; now pay more for repair

Sometimes people make mistakes. This is definitely the case in my life time and time again. I’ve learned to forgive myself and move on from my errors rather than beating myself up too badly. One of the things that I have always been very concerned about was our budget and monthly expenditure. I always keep a strict budget when it comes to my utilities and groceries especially. If there’s one thing that bothers me it’s receiving an extremely high on energy bill at the end of the month. That’s why I do my best to keep my heating and cooling system in good shape. I don’t like to adjust the thermostat often because it creates more wear and tear on the HVAC system. I know that every time I turn the indoor air temperature or down I am creating a higher energy bill and an increased chance for professional HVAC repair services. Recently, I had no choice but to rely on the HVAC system pretty heavily. At the same time, I was very concerned about the costs of my routine maintenance appointments for the heating and cooling devices. I have such a tight budget right now that I couldn’t afford to be professional HVAC services that I normally arranged. I decided to try to get through the summer without having my air conditioning unit professionally inspected. Of course, this was a massive mistake. Since my AC unit has been in use 24/7 it apparently couldn’t handle all of the abuse. Yesterday my air conditioning system broke down… And now I’m looking at a professional repair service rather than an affordable routine maintenance job.

The only option was to run inside the public building that stood in front of us.

You never know what weather you’re going to get in this area of the country. I know people always think that they have the worst weather conditions on the planet wherever they live… But I think that we actually might be a contender for the prize. Everyday it seems like a battle between the hot and cold air fronts that regularly passed through this area. You never know if we’re going to have days of the endless oppressive sunshine or if it’s going to suddenly cloud up, drop the temperature, and storm for days. Unfortunately, our weather changes at the drop of a hat and makes it very difficult to predict anything. This is what happened recently when we were out having a sunny picnic on a warm day. Suddenly, clouds rolled in, the outdoor air temperature decreased rapidly, and it began pouring. We were absolutely drenched by the ice cold rain that was pounding on our heads. By the time we made it back to the nearest shelter we were soaked through and through and shivering. All day we had been sweating through our shirts in the oppressive heat and humidity. Now, we found ourselves trying to hide from the icy raindrops. The only option was to run inside the public building that stood in front of us. When we got inside the doors we were extremely disappointed to find that their air conditioning system was still running. Clearly, the thermostat was set to compensate for the immense heat and humidity that we were experiencing earlier in the day. Now, we stood there drenched and shaking in our boots as we tried to avoid the air conditioning system. Thanks a lot, climate.

Thank god for basements; sheltering in the storm

There’s nothing worse than suddenly having a wrench thrown into your day.

This happens when you pretty often because I live in a fairly unpredictable environment.

Working on the farm means that I have a lot of unexpected animal problems to deal with. You never know when one of the horses is going to hurt themselves or fall ill. Suddenly, you have to call the vet and wait around all day to resolve the medical emergency before you can get a single thing done. It doesn’t help that we live in a place with an unpredictable climate, as well. Not only do our outdoor air temperatures fluctuate wildly from hot to cold throughout the day… But you never know when you’re going to get a dramatic outburst of severe weather. This is what happened to the other day when a summer storm turned into an emergency. It had been extremely hot and muggy all day long so we were doing our best to finish our outdoor chores so we could get back to AC. That’s when we looked up and noticed the dark clouds rolling in. We actually were encouraged to see the rain storm headed our direction because it would change the outdoor air quality and hopefully decrease the air temperature. We were definitely overheated from working outside and ready for AC at that point. We gladly ran inside to shelter from the storm in AC for a few minutes. However, the storm got worse and we found ourselves hiding in the chilly basement. In that moment, I was so glad that we had a nice cold basement with inherently cool indoor air. I knew our air conditioning system couldn’t be relied upon in case of emergency, but the naturally cool basement could.
