We have quite the sleuth

Ever since our child was old enough to begin to understand what the thermostat did, he has been trying to adjust the temperature control settings for the house.

At first, it was absolutely deranged because he would have the gas furnace cranked up literally all the way or he would have the cooling system blasting.

Eventually he learned exactly how to find the temperature control settings that he favorite, and unluckily, his temperature control settings really are not the same as ours. This was becoming a problem & the two of us kept telling him over and over again not to adjust the temperature control settings, but he never wanted to listen to our HVAC demands. Eventually the two of us updated to a smart thermostat. Every one of us finally thought the two of us could keep him locked out of the thermostat with a pin code, but no – he figured out the pin! He was able to install the smart app straight on his cell iPhone just like the two of us did, & he adjusts the temperature control settings every day with greater convenience now. Every one of us have changed the pin code at least a few times, but he regularly manages to figure it out. I don’t know if he is somehow hacking into the thermostat somehow or what, but he refuses to let us know. Eventually, I just decided to call the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C corporation to see about going and fixing the temperature control setting complication. Finally, we have control of our HVAC again.

It was a long shot, but

It was only a few months ago when I was sitting at this event where they were doing some raffles, however when I saw the massive raffle for getting free radiant radiant floors installed in your home, all costs included in the prize, I was ecstatic.

I mean sure, the chances to win something like that are kind of… extremely… slim, even though I decided to buy a ton of raffle tickets.

I must have bought 200 tickets the first afternoon & after that the two of us bought at least another 300 in the next week. The raffle contest was going to be for about a month long before they closed it & then did the drawing for the winner. Imagine my utter shock when I received a call & I l gained that I was the winner of the amazing radiant floors! I was so stunned that I couldn’t even say anything for a moment. The caller finally asked myself and others if I was there & after that the two of us told them & I actually started shouting in joy. I thanked them for the good news & it was within the same week when I had the new radiant radiant floors installed in my home. It sincerely had to be 1 of the happiest moments of my life. I can’t tell you the reason for sure, but those amazing new radiant radiant floors make myself and others assume better in general, basically ever since I have been using them, I have been feeling so much more comfortable and energy efficient!

I’m glad things are bustling

Honestly, I didn’t expect to become so tied up on the first very afternoon that I opened, even though I jumped into some pretty extreme cases in the beginning

When I first opened up my private investigator business, I definitely was pleased with myself, but i had a truly comfortable set up where I could call all different people & discuss their concerns so that I could do my job very easily to their satisfaction. I especially prefer the new climate control system I had professionally installed in the site with the help of my heating, cooling, and air quality control provider down the street, however there is Heating, Ventilation, & A/C zone control as well. That means when people are waiting in the lobby, they can have customized temperature control system settings from the settings in my office area… The heating and cooling system has been great for everyone and that’s a great thing, because we are bustling around here. I never knew that the town needed a PI so badly, but my hot and cold settings have been getting quite the workout since my HVAC system started to be visited by hundreds of local residences. Thank god I have that awesome heating and cooling system, or else I would have been in hot water right out of the gates. I don’t know what I would have done without working AC in my new office. Honestly, I didn’t expect to become so tied up on the first very afternoon that I opened, even though I jumped into some pretty extreme cases in the beginning. I did a little job with family legal matters, making sure the children were honestly being treated as the parents claimed & things like that. I also looked into several matters of infidelity; Actually, that was 1 of the greatest things that people wanted myself and others to do. I regularly felt like this was my ultimate calling to do this genre of work.

 

furnace/heater tune-up

For some reason my bathroom stays warm

I’ve been working in the lavatory that’s right next to my home office for about a month now.

I think that sounds just a little bit crazy.

It’s not because I’m sick and so I have to stay close to the lavatory or anything like that, though. It’s because the furnace isn’t finally working undoubtedly well in the rest of the home for some reason lately. I first started to notice it last week when the weather started cooling off quite a bit outside. We had already had some snow this year, but then the weather heated back up. We even had some flowers come up, but I think it was a false spring phenomenon because now it’s chilly outside and there’s snow on the ground again. Anyway, that day when I turned the furnace on, it started up as well as started to blow just like usual. It ran and ran but for some reason, the temperature in the home never started heating up. I kept wondering why I was so cold when the temperature control was set at 70 degrees. That’s when I observed that although the rest of the place was entirely cold, the master lavatory was super toasty warm. Since my heating and A/C supplier was all booked up for the next two weeks and I couldn’t get a furnace repair appointment, I just dragged all my stuff into the lavatory and set up an office there where it’s warm and cozy. Another plus is the fact that I don’t have to waste undoubtedly much time going on lavatory breaks!

The furnace hasn’t been heating my home properly

I’ve been having to work in the bathroom that’s right next to my home office for about a month now, but I know that sounds just a little bit crazy.

It’s not because I’m sick and so I have to stay close to the bathroom or anything like that, though.

It’s because the gas furnace isn’t now working genuinely well in the rest of the home for some reason lately. I first started to notice it last month when the weather started cooling off quite a bit outside. We had already had some snow this year, however then the weather heated back up. We even had some flowers come up, although I think it was a false springtime phenomenon because now it’s frosty outside and there’s snow on the ground again. Anyway, that day when I turned the gas furnace on, it started up and started to blow just like usual. It ran and ran however for some reason, the temperature in the home never started heating up. I kept wondering why I was so frosty when the temperature control heating was set at 73 degrees. That’s when I noticed that although the rest of the home was particularly cold, the master bathroom was super toasty warm. Since my heating and A/C company was all booked up for more than one week and I couldn’t get a gas furnace repair appointment, I just dragged all my stuff into the bathroom and set up an office there where it’s sizzling and cozy. Another plus is the fact that I don’t have to waste genuinely much time going on bathroom breaks!

My house has been really cold lately

I’ve been having to work in the washroom that’s right next to our study room for about a week now, but I guess that sounds just a little bit crazy.

It’s not because I’m sick and so I have to stay close to the washroom or anything like that, though.

It’s because the oil furnace isn’t working very well in the rest of the house for some reason lately. I first started to notice it yesterday when the weather started cooling off quite a bit outside. We had already had some snow this year, but then the weather heated back up. We even had some flowers come up, however I guess it was a false spring phenomenon because now it’s freezing outside and there’s snow on the ground again, and anyway, that day when I turned the oil furnace on, it started up and started to blow just care about usual. It ran and ran but for some reason, the temperature in the house never started heating up. I kept wondering why I was so freezing when the temperature control was set at 74 degrees. That’s when I noticed that although the rest of the lake house was legitimately cold, the master washroom was super toasty warm. Since our HVAC company was all booked up for the next 2 weeks and I couldn’t get an oil furnace maintenance appointment, I just dragged all my stuff into the washroom and set up an office in there where it’s moderate and cozy. Another plus is the fact that I don’t have to waste very much time going on washroom breaks!

I put a reminder in my phone to notify me when my HVAC filters needs to be replaced

I just bought a new smartphone for the first time in four years.

I’m not one of those people who goes out and replaces their phone every year when the new model is released.

My sister has a bad habit of doing that. I don’t know how she manages to afford it either, but I guess her phone company buys the phone back from her after she pays something like $300 out of pocket. It’s a strange arrangement, but you keep getting new phones while the phone company gets an additional $300 out of you every single year. That in large part is why I try to make my phones last as long as I possibly can. I actually felt bad that my last phone didn’t make it to the five year mark like the one before it. At least I like the new version of android on this newer phone. The apps used for messaging, making calls, and collecting voicemail are much more intuitive than before. There’s a great app that allows you to make sticky notes to add to your home screen like you get on Windows computers. I created a note as a monthly reminder to replace the filter in my air conditioner. I live in a region with a lot of airborne lung irritants so I can’t afford to go for weeks at a time without replacing the filter. I get them in bulk on the internet for a reduced cost, so I’m not spending as much money as I used to. Even if I didn’t live in this area, I would still replace my air conditioner filters at least once every four weeks.

My smart thermostat has auto programs for additional energy efficiency

It’s hard maintaining energy efficiency in a home with two teenagers and three young children.

More often than not someone leaves the TV on overnight or lights on after leaving for school or work in the morning.

I try to communicate to everyone about being better with the electricity in our house, including my husband. He’s not necessarily the best role model for our children in this regard specifically. He has a habit of leaving things turned on when he’s not using them, especially in his music studio in our basement. I walk down there from time to time and find that he has a guitar amplifier and several keyboards turned on. When I walk to my kids’ rooms, I find the same thing—their computers are on, as well as the TVs and several lights. Short of getting new windows and replacing the central furnace with a heat pump, I don’t know how else to get our energy costs down in this house. I know that my pleading isn’t getting anywhere with my family, so I decided to install a smart thermostat. If you program it accordingly, you can let it do the thinking when it comes to what settings you use for your air conditioner or furnace. It will analyze outdoor temperatures and determine the best temperatures inside for energy efficiency. If you manually program it at any point, it remembers your temperature preferences for later use. It’s like artificial intelligence that is always trying to improve how it understands your heating and cooling needs. After using the smart thermostat for two months straight, I’m already seeing a massive reduction in electricity costs. I think my family was trying to keep the temperature in the house too low while it’s hot outside.
