Bad a/c at the hotel on the way home

A year or so ago, back in the days when people could go anywhere without fear, I took a little road trip with my border collie; and I just felt that getting away for a morning or various to keep from going stir crazy was a good idea.

Anyway, it was a lovely little trip except for 1 thing: the a/c in the hotel I stopped at on the way home was terrible.

After various days away, I headed for home, and I had a long drive ahead of me. I decided that if I got too sleepy, I would just extend the road trip for 1 more night and get a fantastic night’s sleep at a little hotel anywhere on the way home. But well, I am a big baby about driving, and that is exactly what happened. In addition, my car’s a/c system was not actually all that marvelous, so the heat made me a little sleepy, as well. I decided to stop about 3 hours from the cabin and get a hotel room for the night. I told the clerk that I was only looking for fantastic a/c and quiet for a fantastic night’s sleep. He promised I would have all those, so I rented the room. It was by no means a fancy hotel; it was just basic, but that was all I was looking for; but, the hotel employee let me down in one terrible way. About midnight, I began to feel quite hot, and I looked at the a/c system unit. It had tons of water beads busting out on it and the a/c system air was not at all cool. It felt akin to a real heater, in fact! I called the front desk to ask about the a/c system, and that’s when I found out that the guy who gave me my room key had given me a room that was known to have a/c system issues.

I accidentally stayed at a hotel with terrible air conditioning

A year or so ago, back in the mornings when people could go anywhere without fear, I took a little road trip with my border collie.

But I just felt that getting away for a morning or many to keep from going stir crazy… Anyway, it was an attractive little trip except for one thing: the air conditioner in the hotel I stopped at on the way home wasn’t great.

After many mornings away, I headed for home, and I had a long drive ahead of me. I decided that if I got too tired, I would just extend the road trip for one more night and get a good night’s sleep at a little hotel anywhere on the way home if necessary. However well, I am a big baby about driving, and that is exactly what happened. In addition, my car’s air conditioner was not genuinely all that marvelous, so the heat made me a little weary, as well. I decided to stop about three hours from my lake house and get a hotel room for the night. I told the clerk that I was only looking for an enjoyable air conditioner and quiet for an enjoyable night’s sleep; he promised I would have all those, so I rented the room. It was by no means an extravagant hotel; it was just basic, however that was all I was looking for. But, the hotel employee let me down in one way. About midnight, I began to feel quite hot, and I looked at the air conditioner unit. It had tons of water beads busting out on it and the air conditioner air was not at all cool. It felt as if it was a heater, in fact! I called the front desk to ask about the air conditioner, and that’s when I found out that the guy who checked me in had given me a room that was known to have serious air conditioner concerns.

Getting a hotel room with a bad air conditioner

A year or so ago, back in the days when people could go somewhere without fear, I took a little road trip with my border collie! I just felt like getting away for a day or many to keep from going stir crazy… Anyway, it was a good little trip except for one thing: the air conditioning in the hotel I stopped at on the way home was bad.

After many days away, I headed for home, plus I had a long drive ahead of me.

I decided that if I got too tired, I would just extend the road trip for one more night plus get a wonderful night’s sleep at a little hotel somewhere on the way home… And well, I am a big baby about driving, plus that is exactly what happened. In addition, my car’s air conditioning was not truly all that marvelous, so the heat made me a little too tired, as well. I decided to stop about 3 hours from the condo plus get a hotel room for the night. I told the clerk that I was only looking for good air conditioning plus quiet for a good night’s sleep. She promised I would have all those, so I rented the room. It was by no means a fancy hotel; it was just overly basic. However, that was all I was looking for; but still, the hotel employee let me down in one way. About midnight, I began to feel quite hot, plus I looked at the air conditioning unit. It had tons of water beads busting out on it plus the air conditioning air was not at all cool. It felt as if it was a heater, in fact! I called the front desk to ask about the air conditioning, plus that’s when I found out that the girl who gave me the room had given me a room that was known to have air conditioning troubles.

Hotel Employee Lets me Down

I found a great gift for my parents’ anniversary

When I thought more about it, I realized that an upgrade to their HVAC system along with a new thermostat system would be the perfect gift.

This year, I was able to find a great gift for my parents’ wedding anniversary. I really tried for a long time to think of something that they would really like. They are really hard to buy for. I wanted to get them a cruise or a trip or something like that, but they really hate leaving home most of the time. They just aren’t really good travelers. They don’t like eating out and they don’t like fancy cars or clothes or anything like that. They are just hard to buy for, and that’s the truth. I started thinking about things that would be helpful for them while they are at home, since that’s where they spend the vast majority of their time. One thing that I knew they were in need of was a newer heating and cooling system, including a new thermostat. I knew that the HVAC system that they had in their house was really old, because it had been installed in their house back before I was born and I’m almost 35 years old now! So a heating and cooling upgrade was definitely in order. When I thought more about it, I realized that an upgrade to their HVAC system along with a new thermostat system would be the perfect gift. Since they are home so much of the time, improving their indoor air quality would be something very thoughtful to do. Plus, if I got them a high efficiency HVAC system to replace their old one, I would be able to help them save money on their heating and cooling bills all year long. It would be the gift that keeps on giving.

We went to the movies for the first time last weekend

We finally got to go to the movies for the first time since all of the virus shutdowns happened.

We went to see an old movie that was playing at our local theater last weekend and we were all very excited to be back in a movie theater.

It was a little bit weird for us, though. We knew that we were going to have to wear a mask inside so that made us all feel weird. I can’t wait till everything is finally back to normal again around here. Anyway, when we got to the movie theater, there was a big heating and air conditioning maintenance truck outside in the parking lot. There were some HVAC guys going in and out of the building carrying tools and pieces of ventilation ducts and so I started thinking that it might not be such a good idea to go inside after all. But everything turned out okay. I guess one of the theaters in the building had some issues with the HVAC system and so the heating and cooling company was there to replace some of the ventilation ducts and fix one of the furnaces. But the theater that our movie was showing in was nice and toasty warm. I’m glad it wasn’t freezing in the theater because the last time we were in the movies, I remember that the place was super cold. The whole time that we were watching the movie, all I could think about was how I wished that I had a blanket! I’m glad that didn’t happen this time.

Most of the time I love my job

I’ve been a realtor for almost fifteen years now, and most of the time I really love my job.

  • It’s one of those jobs that’s different every single day and you never know what you’re going to end up doing.

I love the excitement of meeting new people and helping them hunt down exactly the right home for them and their families. Most of the time, I think being a realtor is super rewarding. However, there is a certain percentage of the population that I dread to see coming into the realty office where I work. This is going to sound ridiculous, but I have the worst time trying to help anyone who works for an HVAC company. If you are an HVAC technician or you work in the heating and cooling industry, I apologize for what I’m about to say. Heating and cooling professionals are nearly impossible to help when it comes to finding them a new home. And the only reason that’s true is because they are so darn picky when it comes to the heating and cooling systems in their new home. They refuse to settle for anything less than perfection when it comes to an HVAC system. Even if a home might be perfect in a thousand other ways, an HVAC technician won’t care if the heating and cooling system isn’t up to speed. At least, that’s been my experience over the years. I’m sure that not all HVAC professionals are that way, but I wouldn’t mind if I never had to work with one again.

The worst part about being an HVAC technician is the schedule

I think that the worst part about working as an HVAC technician is how I end up having to work nights and weekends so much. Not only that, but I also have to work on holidays a lot of the time. This wasn’t really something that I planned on having to deal with back when I went to school to get my heating and cooling certification. I was actually pretty naive back then. I remember thinking that once I finally got my HVAC certification from the trade school that I was going to, I would be able to find a job and basically set all of my own hours. I thought I could just work for myself and go to fix furnaces and air conditioning systems whenever and wherever I felt like it without worrying about anyone else. Well, it turned out that I ended up working at one of the HVAC businesses here in town and not for myself at all. I figured out that I don’t really have the business skills to run my own residential HVAC company. At least not yet, anyway. These days, I’m working lots of nights and weekends because that’s simply when the HVAC customers need us to come out and do our HVAC maintenance and repair appointments. I guess it’s okay, but it’s just not exactly what I thought it would be. I think that the worst part of the job is actually the schedule because I actually enjoy figuring out problems on my customers’ heating and cooling systems most of the time.

It’s just too darn cold

The thing is, I am just plain old lazy

I have a really great central heating and air conditioning system. Especially the central air conditioning. However, it is so great and powerful that the air conditioning can tend to be a bit too cold at times. I set the thermostat at a reasonable 75 degrees and it sometimes will get as cold as 72 in my house if I am not careful in turning off the thermostat when I feel it getting too cold. This has been an ongoing issue with my central air conditioning system unit. The only viable solution would be to get a programmable smart thermostat. With one of those types of thermostats, I will be able to program the thermostat to shut off when it needs to. I wouldn’t have to deal with the issue of my overly powerful air conditioning system making the house too cold. The thing is, I am just plain old lazy. I always say to myself I am going to get a programmable smart thermostat, and then it slips my mind and I never go and do it. I am actually going to make it a point this weekend to go out and buy one of those programmable smart thermostats. I am going to make myself a note and stick it on the bathroom mirror so I do not forget! This is going to be the only way in the world I know that I will remember to go out and buy that programmable smart thermostat to start enjoying my powerful central air conditioning system properly without freezing to death!

This helped a bit

I have been having pretty bad air quality within my home.

  • I did not want to invest in a whole home air purification system because they cost too much money.

But I did go out and buy a portable air purification system. But even that was not enough to completely clean the indoor air quality in my house. Thankfully though, it was the beginning of winter, so it was cool enough outside to open up the windows. By opening up the windows, running the portable air purification system and letting the good air quality from outside get in my house to mix with the bad air quality, this helped a bit in cleaning the air quality of my home. It was a combo of running the portable indoor air cleaner and the natural great air quality from outside that finally rid my home of this bad air quality. The bad air quality happened from me not cleaning my house as often as I should be. I get kind of busy with work and other things and forget to handle such tasks as house cleaning. Everyone needs to have a good house cleaning at least twice a year. This ensures that your home will have the best possible air quality by keeping things clean. In the future I think I am going to hire a maid service of some sort. That way, I can keep up on my house cleaning and keep the indoor air quality in my home decent. This is going to be the only way to accomplish this I believe.
