You have to be careful with gas heaters and carbon monoxide

I remember a long time ago when I went to visit my aunt with my parents! It was a deranged experience because when my aunt didn’t answer the door as well as the people I was with and I saw her car was there, the people I was with and I panicked.

My father ended up finding a spare home key under one of the stones in the front! When the people I was with and I found my aunt passed out in the bed not waking up, my father shouted for myself and others to open up all the windows as well as fast! I did exactly as he said because I knew this was drastic however I didn’t suppose why I had to open the windows at first… There was a breeze through the entire home after all the windows as well as doors were open as well as the fresh air absolutely was refreshing.

My mother called the police to get my aunt to the hospital. My father finally told myself and others he knew that it was carbon monoxide that had made my aunt sick! He said he knew because he had run tests on this heating proposal before as well as it was on its way out. He said that thing honestly boiling as well as caused a crack to form in the heat exchanger. When that happens, the heating, ventilation and A/C proposal is basically toast because the repair costs just as much as a new heating, ventilation and A/C upgrade. It was confirmed that carbon monoxide was the culprit through medical tests as well as blessedly my aunt survived! She honestly would have died if the people I was with and I didn’t act so quickly to open the windows to get the carbon monoxide poison out of the house. If the people I was with and I would have arrived even 30 minutes too late, she could have actually died also.

My uncle nearly died from carbon monoxide poisoning

I remember a long time ago when I went to visit our uncle with our parents; it was a crazy experience because when our uncle didn’t answer the door plus all of us saw her car was there, all of us panicked…

My father ended up finding a spare house key under a single of the stones in the front… When all of us found our uncle passed out in the bed not waking up, our father shouted for me to open up all the windows plus fast! I did exactly as he said because I knew this was drastic although I didn’t suppose why I had to open the windows at first.

Then there was a breeze through the house after all the windows plus doors were open plus the fresh air absolutely was refreshing. My mother called the police to get our uncle to the hospital. My father told me she knew that it was carbon monoxide that made our uncle sick, she said she knew because she had checked her heating system before plus it was on its way out. She said that thing absolutely warm plus caused a crack to form in the heat exchanger. When that happens, the entire HVAC system is basically toast because the repair costs just as much as a current HVAC replacement. It was confirmed that carbon monoxide was the culprit through medical tests plus luckily our uncle survived! He absolutely would have died if all of us didn’t act so quickly to open the windows to get the carbon monoxide poison out of the house. If all of us would have arrived even 30 or 40 minutes too late, he could have died also.

We saved my aunt a long time ago during a visit

I remember a long time ago when I went to visit my aunt with my parents.

It was a crazy experience because when my aunt didn’t answer the door and we saw her car was there, we panicked.

My father ended up finding a spare house key under one of the stones in the front. When we found my aunt passed out in the bed not waking up, my father shouted for me to open up all the windows and fast! I did exactly as he said because I knew this was serious even though I didn’t know why I had to open the windows at first. There was a breeze through the house after all the windows and doors were open and the fresh air certainly was refreshing. My mother called the police to get my aunt to the hospital. My father told me he knew that it was carbon monoxide that made my aunt sick. He said he knew because he had checked her heating system before and it was on its way out. He said that thing probably overheated and caused a crack to form in the heat exchanger. When that happens, the HVAC system is basically toast because the fix costs just as much as a new HVAC upgrade. It was confirmed that carbon monoxide was the culprit through medical tests and fortunately my aunt survived. She probably would have died if we didn’t act so quickly to open the windows to get the carbon monoxide poison out of the house. If we would have arrived even 30 minutes too late, she could have died also.

I wish I wasn’t such a procrastinator

I have always been a procrastinator, and it’s really annoying.

I know this about myself, and still yet it doesn’t help me stop doing it. I have always been this way, ever since I was a little kid. I would always procrastinate when I was studying for a test or turning in homework, and it always ended up giving me lots of problems. Now that I’m an adult, it’s the same thing all over again. I’ve gotten to the point with the maintenance work in my house where it’s starting to come back and bite me all over again. Specifically, I have put off fixing our central heating and cooling system for so long that now it’s going to cost me a small fortune to finally get it fixed. I really should have done maintenance on the heating and the A/C system throughout the year for the past couple of years and then I wouldn’t be in this position. Now, both my central air conditioning system and my furnace are on the blink. Unfortunately for me, it’s that time of year when the weather can be both hot and cold on the very same day. That’s where I am at this point in my life. I need to call and get an appointment with my local HVAC company to have them come and fix both the heating and the air conditioning systems for me. Now that I have waited for so long, it’s going to cost a whole lot. I should really stop putting things like this off for so long!

Summer will be here before we know it

Before we know it, summer is going to be here yet again.

I always complain about the high temperatures during the summer, but the truth is that I really enjoy the sun and the heat.

I have issues with my joints and with chronic pain and honestly, the heating is really the only thing that seems to help. Of course, taking my medication also helps but I hate taking medication so I avoid it whenever possible most of the time. That’s one of the main reasons that I am glad that summer is finally almost here again. I personally don’t ever like using the air conditioning during the summer, and I know that it is because I like the way the hot air makes me feel physically. It’s so much better for my joints and muscles when the temperature all around me is hot. Whenever I have to be in the cold for very long, it’s almost as if I get frozen up and I start moving around like a cold turtle. Maybe I’m really a cold blooded animal or something. At least my husband says that I’m a cold hearted person some of the time! I’m happy that the warmer weather is coming, that’s for sure. And even though I am not going to be running the air conditioning very much, I certainly don’t mind having the HVAC technician come and check out our entire HVAC system. I like keeping the HVAC system in our house in good working order, no matter what the season is. I would never run the A/C if it were up to me.

I’m going to save money with a sign in my yard

Simply by putting a little sign out in front of my house, I’m going to save almost twenty-five percent on my HVAC bill from last month.

  • When my HVAC company told me that I could save money by putting one of their signs in my front yard, I was surprised.

The HVAC technicians were at my house putting in a completely new high efficiency heating and cooling system. Our previous HVAC system had completely bitten the dust the month before and I had special ordered the system that I wanted for our house. It has a lot of special features, including a built in whole home air purification system. I knew that it was going to be expensive when I first ordered it, but what I didn’t know was how much it was going to cost me to actually get it installed by a licensed and insured HVAC technician. When they showed up to install it and I saw the bottom line on the bill, I was a little bit overwhelmed and shocked. I asked the guys who were working on the HVAC installation if there was any way that I would be able to save some money on it and they told me about the incentive that they offer people to give them some free advertising. They said that if I were willing to put one of those little yard signs with their company name and logo in my yard by the mailbox, then they could fix it so that I could save almost twenty-five percent off of my total bill. And when your bill is as big as mine was, twenty-five percent is a lot of money!

I love the HVAC company I found

Now, though, my faith is restored in the HVAC profession

This past winter, I ended up using a new HVAC company for a repair that we needed to have done to our electric furnace. I think I’m going to end up using this HVAC company from now on. My mom and dad always told me when I was growing up that if you found a business or company that you could trust, then you should always try and do business with them. Well, I personally went through a hard time with a series of terrible heating and cooling companies that were supposed to be high quality companies. I read reviews on them and everything, but they were all terrible. Some of them were late, another one called and cancelled the appointment at the last minute, and yet another one had an HVAC technician who tracked mud all over my white carpet. On top of all that, not one of these HVAC companies was able to get my heating and cooling system back up and running again. The whole thing was annoying, and by the time I called up the last HVAC company that I tried, I had almost given up completely! I thought I was going to have to give up and start using a fan and a wood burning fireplace to heat and cool my house. Now, though, my faith is restored in the HVAC profession. The last company I used was super professional and they fixed my heating and cooling system in no time at all. From now on, they are the only place I’m going to call when I have any trouble with my furnace or my air conditioning.

I had some pretty good roommates back in college

We always had decent air quality in the house though and our temperature control settings were reasonable

While it’s true that a lot of people have a hard time with roommates, I actually became friends with mine. These were the greatest group of guys I could have hoped to live with. Everybody was serious about their studies, we all agreed on similar temperature control settings, and everybody took care of chores around the house. We all had a pretty good system worked out between us that was entirely fair. One roommate even had a good idea to invest in one of those washable air filters. I never even heard of those, but it turned out we would save a lot of money. Instead of buying a ton of expensive air filters that you throw away, we were able to wash this one once per month and we could keep reusing it indefinitely. I’m sure it doesn’t last forever, but for us we only had to buy that one air filter and we were able to continue to clean it on a monthly basis for what seemed like forever. I do believe we saved a small fortune not having to invest in air filters all the time and we would just take turns washing the air filter. It honestly wasn’t that difficult to do either, but the air filter did get pretty nasty from time to time. We always had decent air quality in the house though and our temperature control settings were reasonable. We all believed that we had to have just the right temperature control settings to be able to focus on school. We all were aiming towards successful careers, and we all achieved our goals!

Somebody was freaking out at the changing room

I had a strange experience when I went to go clothes shopping the other day.

I browsed all the clothes and found some pretty good pants and shirts to try on.

When I went to the changing room, I kept hearing this guy grumbling about the temperature control settings. He kept saying that it was too overheated for him to try his clothes on and he felt like the air quality wasn’t good enough. I wished the guy would just finish trying on the clothes and be out of there. When he was finally gone, I think everybody else who was waiting was relieved. I told the worker there that I thought the temperature control settings were just fine. It was actually a really hot day and I thought the A/C levels were just right. The worker laughed and said they even have a good air purification system which keeps the air quality great. She didn’t understand why that guy was making such a big deal, but she suspected that he was stressed out about something that was unrelated. I had to agree that a lot of people do that sort of thing, unleash their stress on others via some sort of channel. In this case, this guy just happened to explode into anger while he was trying on clothes at the clothing store. I thought there was a funny smell in the changing room, but other than that, I thought everything was fine. I tried on all the clothes, bought the ones I liked and got out of there.

People are always shocked when they learn I work in a graveyard

People are often shocked when I tell them what I do for a living.

I am a groundskeeper at a local cemetery. It’s approximately 40 acres of land that has to be kept up regularly. We have to make sure the hedges are trimmed, the grass is mowed, and the place is kept up nice and tidy. I have to admit, it can be difficult especially in the peak heating and cooling seasons, but we are able to manage. On top of keeping up with everything, I have to coordinate burial services, assign plots, facilitate tours, and dig graves. This is very challenging work indeed, but it is fulfilling work. It has actually taught me a lot about perspective. I have found that no matter what kind of stress I am under, the stress of having loved ones die is by far the worst thing. No matter how I am feeling, I can see these people are always grieving to greater extremes than whatever I happen to be dealing with. This has helped me get by over the years as I realize that I have a pretty good life for the most part. I have a roof over my head, food on the table, and my family is doing alright. I have considered changing to other jobs, but I actually enjoy this type of work. If I did go for another career choice though, I think I would probably try to get into the HVAC industry. After the long days of working in the sun and in the cold weather, I think I would like to help work on climate control systems.
