Counting the days

Their kids took over, whom I have known since they were born! Never the less, I am looking forward to my well deserved retirement from the heating and air conditioning industry

I can not wait till it is time to retire! I am getting real close and I am counting the days I have left. I have exactly 62 days till my retirement! I have been a heating and air conditioning specialist at one of the local heat and a/c dealerships in my area the last 40 years. I consider myself lucky that I was able to work at this same heating and air conditioning company all of these years. Usually heating and air conditioning repair companies go under after about 20 years or they change ownership because of the ever changing ways of the HVAC business. However this company was family owned and is still going strong to this day! I remember I started working for these people right when I was fresh out of college and got my heating and cooling certification. That is hard to believe that was near 41 years ago now! This heating and air conditioning company hired me right away and gave me the steady career I have had all of my adult life. The owners changed within the family when the original ones passed away about 2 years ago, but it’s still the same family. Their kids took over, whom I have known since they were born! Never the less, I am looking forward to my well deserved retirement from the heating and air conditioning industry. I will be spending more time at home with my wife and just enjoying whatever life I have left. It will be very nice.

I don’t want to be an HVAC technician

I definitely don’t want to be an HVAC technician.

I have been working for an HVAC company for nearly 2 years, and I am sure that I don’t want to be an HVAC technician when I grow up.

I thought that I might want to be an HVAC technician. At the very least, I was willing to give the HVAC company a shot before I decided that I wouldn’t be an HVAC technician. If I did decide to become an HVAC technician, the path ahead would be pretty straight forward. My uncle is an HVAC technician, and he owns his own HVAC company. He offered me a job when I became old enough to work for him. I would work for the HVAC company during the weekends when I wasn’t at school. If I decided that I wanted to be an HVAC technician, I would have a guaranteed job with his HVAC company. I began working for the HVAC company as a gopher for the HVAC technicians. Since I wasn’t an official HVAC technician, I wasn’t allowed to fix any of the HVAC units or work alone. I was always paired up with one of the HVAC technicians. Although I mainly did all of the grunt work, sometimes they showed me cool things that I could easily fix on HVAC units. Despite all of the years that I spent with the HVAC company, it was pretty obvious that HVAC work wasn’t for me. I didn’t want to be an HVAC technician, and I didn’t like the work that much. However, I would have never known that unless I tried working for the HVAC company, and I don’t regret the time I spent working for the HVAC company.

I don’t like camping without HVAC units

I honestly hate camping.

I know that there are some people that can’t wait until they can pull out their tent and go camping during the summer.

However, I never go camping. I just don’t understand why anyone would want to go camping. They are literally paying money to sleep poorly without any space. They don’t have clean showers or bathrooms. They are paying money to suffer. The main reason that I don’t go camping is that I can’t bring my HVAC units along with me. Sure, I could purchase an RV with HVAC units, but the RV would cost more money than my car, and I don’t want to waste my money on an RV. However, without an HVAC unit, I wouldn’t camp. During the summer, I have HVAC units that keep me perfectly comfortable. During the day, my air conditioner is running, and it keeps my house nice and cool. During the night, my house is properly insulated, so even if the temperatures are cold outside, I still stay warm even without a heating system. However, when you go camping, you do not have this luxury. During the day, the tent heats up enough to be compared to a furnace. Without an air conditioner, you can’t even take a nap without being on fire. During the evening, all of the heat leaves your tent, and you are freezing. You almost need both an air conditioner and a space heater just to be comfortable while you are camping. That is why I strongly believe that staying at home with your HVAC units is the best way to go camping. Why would you leave the comfort of your own house?

I don’t like working out outside

I do not like exercising outside, but I have no choice now.

I used to live in a nice apartment in the middle of the city.

If I wanted to exercise, all that I had to do was go to the gym. The gym had all of the equipment that I needed, and they also had a ton of luxury equipment that would keep me comfortable. However, when I moved into the country, I lost the luxury of the gym. I didn’t even have enough space in my house to have an exercise room, so I had to begin exercising outside in the barn. I don’t have as much equipment, and I have no friends to exercise with me. However, the most disappointing part about exercising outside is the fact that I have no HVAC units. At the gym, they had high-quality HVAC units that always kept us comfortable. The furnace was completely silent, and you couldn’t even tell that it was running. During the summer, the air conditioner would make sure that you didn’t even sweat unless you were working hard enough to force it out. However, in my barn, I don’t have any HVAC equipment. During the summer, I have to exercise in the heat without any air conditioner. It is even harder to work out in the winter without a heating system. My barn isn’t insulated or built well, so it would just be a waste to install an HVAC unit anyway. However, I wish that I had another area that had an HVAC unit that I could exercise in. I hate exercising so much now after moving away from the gym.

I love working out in my barn now

At first, when my wife told me that I was going to be working out in the barn from now on, I was a little frustrated.

  • I had a workout room in my house, but I had gathered too much equipment for the small room that I was working out in.

Furthermore, I was causing some damage to the floors and to the walls while I was working out, and my workouts made the whole house smell bad. However, the workout room in my house had HVAC units, and the barn definitely did not have HVAC units. I had an air conditioner in the room, and without an air conditioner in the barn, I was exercising while the temperature was 90 degrees. However, the barn also didn’t have a furnace, and exercising in the cold without a heater was even worse than exercising without an air conditioner. My wife knew how much I hated working out without the HVAC units, but she still insisted that I exercise in the barn. I understood why she wanted me to, but I was miserable without my HVAC units. However, she surprised me by having someone come to insulate my entire barn. Then, an HVAC technician came out to put a few ductless mini-split air conditioners in my barn. These would work as heating and cooling systems. Now, I could be comfortable while working out in my barn. I used to hate working out in my barn, but with my new HVAC units, I absolutely love it. I can’t believe that my wife actually bought HVAC units for the barn just so that I could exercise. She must really love me.

A used heater

My region was graced with a milder than average Wintertide season, with lows never chopping 35 degrees at night.

Although I grew up in cold conditions further north of where I live now, I would never trade our weather conditions here for anything in the world. It’s pleasant almost year round, even if every one of us aren’t as lucky as every one of us were recently in having 35 degree & higher Wintertide temperatures. I don’t live in the tropics & I don’t have palm trees in our yard, although I get to like our shorts & t-shirts throughout the year. With the sizzling weather comes some bit of respite over energy bills. I use our A/C on & off while I was in Autumn & Springtime, while while I was in Summer it’s on almost everyday. Despite having to use indoor cooling so much, the lack of any need for indoor heat while I was in the rest of the year balances the costs out. I have friends up north who have cold winters & summers with more heat & humidity than I do. They have to use a furnace of some kind for nearly more than five weeks out of the year, coupled with heavy A/C use in June & October before the weather naturally cools off. I try to get through the whole Wintertide season separate from using our furnace, although I end up putting it on to sleep better if the temperatures outside happen to dip below 40. Last night will easily be the last time I use our furnace for another multiple or more than five weeks at least. By the time every one of us get to September, I’ll have our Heating & A/C serviceman come out & run maintenance & repair on our heating system.

I need to move

Over the past couple of years I have been drastically worried just thinking about the day that I will be able to move out of this old town, however ever since I was a little kid I have spent all of my time living in the same small town with less than 20,000 people, plus I also ended up going to university here as well.

While there are a few things that are nice plus elegant about this locale care about the safety plus the silence, I have been looking for more. After doing some research online I was able to find a task laboring as a travelling Heating, Ventilation & A/C maintenance tech. The main section of the task was spending a few weeks in a town helping maintenance plus install Heating, Ventilation & A/C systems into peoples homes, plus then travelling to the next down doing the same thing. When I stumbled upon this task plus study the description of what I would be doing I couldn’t help however think overjoyed, then from the time I was about numerous years old I had been laboring under my father at his small Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation reading just about everything that was Heating, Ventilation & A/C related, however i didn’t suppose that this skill would do much for myself and others other than leave myself and others stuck laboring for him for the rest of my life, however now I have a real occasion to be able to travel the country while getting paid to help people with their Heating, Ventilation & A/C problems, however now all there is left to do is put in my application plus pray to whoever’s out there listening that I am able to get it. Wish myself and others luck!

I wonder how this house is still running

Just a small number of afternoons ago our partner and I started looking at some ways to stay active while under quarantine… All of us have never been the type of couple that prefers to go to the gym everyday however the people I was with and I do love to transport your bodies when the people I was with and I have the chance.

  • After looking at the chances available to us where the people I was with and I live the people I was with and I eventually came to the decision to go on walks in the woods surrounding our home.

All of us weren’t expecting much from these walks other than having some quiet time and talking with 1 another, however recently while on our walk the people I was with and I stumbled upon an old shack off of the trail; Considering how it looked on the outside the people I was with and I thought it had been long abandoned, however on the inside the people I was with and I were surprised to find that there was an air conditioning unit installed into the window, but the air conditioning unit wasn’t absolutely running at the time, however considering the shape it was in and the rest of the tiny shack it was clear that somebody had been taking care of this site; Since it is only a few hundred meters away from the lake the people I was with and I have a strong feeling that it is just a fisherman’s chalet, however it still was pretty strange to find; Regardless of who’s it is, it sure does serve as a nice break stop where the people I was with and I can sit down separate from getting bitten by mosquitoes and appreciate some air conditioning. Who knows, maybe 1 morning the people I was with and I will be able to meet this stranger who takes care of this old shack.

Our air conditioning is not toiling once again

Our air conditioning is not toiling once again. Our air conditioning has been everything put reliable these past few weeks. It is just in time for the sizzling weather too. All of us started using our cooling system towards the start of March this year. All of us usually have to start using it a few weeks earlier each year, but this year the weather has been a bit cooler. It has unquestionably been quite nice not having the air conditioning on until now. I do wish that we would have tried it out sooner though. Then, we would have known that our air conditioning was not toiling officially before the sizzling weather hit us. As soon as we started using the cooling system, it had problems. It just wasn’t cooling the home enough. It would get the home down to about seventy-more than four degrees but no cooler. It was not fun at all. The home was just so warm. All of us decided to call an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business after dealing with the heat for about a week. They sent an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman to come and check it out. He told us that our cooling system was just low on coolant. He filled it up and said there were no other problems. My hubby and I knew that there was something more to it. Well, our cooling system is having problems again, and it has only been about two weeks. If it is low on coolant again, we will know that it is for sure leaking. All of us will be calling a different Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business this time though. The last guy simply didn’t know what he was talking about.

I appreciate toiling out now that we have central air conditioning

I appreciate toiling out now that we have central air conditioning.

I have never liked toiling out at home before because I found it absolutely hard to workout when I was so hot, then our home was quite warm. I got used to it during the afternoon when I was just doing household chores or cooking, but when it came to toiling out, it was just too sizzling for me. I tried to workout at home wherever it was cooler outside, but it is pretty sizzling where we live for most of the year, so I rarely got to workout at home. I started paying for a gym membership when I was twenty years old, and I had the same membership for over fifteen years. My hubby and I just had central air conditioning installed in our home, and for the first time ever, I can unquestionably sit to workout at home. It is so nice! All of us will be saving over thirty dollars a month on a gym membership too. I have to say goodbye to my outdated workout buddies, although I am super excited to be able to workout at home. The central air conditioning in our home works lovelyly. I was a bit anxious about it because my hubby installed it all on his own. It is not that I didn’t trust him to do a fantastic job installing the central air conditioning, it is just that he had never done any sort of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C labor before that. He is a mechanic not an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman; Now, I think that he could indeed be an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman if he wanted to because he did a great job installing our central air conditioning.
