Seal up that house – temperature gun shows air leakage

All my life I’ve been hearing about Energy Efficiency as it relates to finances and climate change.

It’s probably our major social revolution of my generation.

Or at least one of them. We have become obsessed with improving our Energy Efficiency and reducing our energy expenditure as a whole. Every individual consumer is interested in reducing their monthly Energy bill pay for obvious reasons. As a society, we are extremely stressed about reducing our Reliance on energy as it relates to climate change. It makes sense that this is is Hot Topic for everyone. Has our populations continue to grow, our Reliance on air purification systems are also increasing. Human activities create more air pollution than we can currently contend with. That means we either need to reduce our energy expenditure and the harmful products created by energy usage, or we need to find a way to filter our air before it is released into the environment. I’m a huge fan of these ideas, and I expected that many major corporations are also interested.It’s probably easiest to start this air quality revolution at home. Whoever is the first company to develop a brand new form of central heating and cooling that requires less energy usage and creates less air pollution will be considered a god. The company that starts releasing energy neutral air temperature control equipment is going to skyrocket to success. Hopefully, most of all, our air quality and experience as living beings on this planet will also vastly improve with the advent of new, energy-efficient and climate neutral, Heating and Cooling devices.

Contractor forgot to install air vents

How many years ago I moved to a brand new state and a brand new city.

It happens to be a place with quite a reputation for being hot, humid, and wild.

Whenever people hear about where I live, they have if you stereotypical things to sorry about the location. First, they always bring up the awful drivers and ungodly traffic in the city. That is a fair judgment. Secondly, they usually say something about how they personally could never live in such hot conditions. If you have AC, you’ll be fine. Lastly, often people mention that to the quality of home construction down here is quite terrible. That is also very true. I can’t even argue with that brought a judgment. I have seen some truly terrible houses. The one that I currently live in appears to be better made than most. But if you start to look around, you’ll quickly notice that the contractors messed up. Look carefully, can you find any air vents? The answer is no. No matter how hard you look, there are no air vents in my entire house. This is beside the fact that a central heating and cooling system was installed when the home was made. They purchase to the furnace and air conditioner, but when they went to install the brand new HVAC system, the ventilation Specialists was in for a surprise. There was no air duct installed in the walls or air vents leading into the Open Spaces. The contractor had completely forgotten to install the air quality control infrastructure to go along with the air temperature equipment.

Fresh air – so many air filters

For the past year my mom has been on a massive pollution kick.

She likes to get wound up about random political and Global issues, and then stress herself out about how she can’t make any changes.

She literally starts at the top, becoming heavily obsessed with the most massive problems in human psyche, and then wonders why she doesn’t see immediate change in her world. Lately, her obsession has been global climate change and air quality In major cities. I have no idea why, because she doesn’t even live in a major city. She lives out in the country where there is tons of fresh, flowing air from all directions. She really doesn’t need to worry about a ton of Airborne pollution at her house or the effects of smog on her lungs. But it’s all that she talks about. She’s so wound up about air quality that she even started messing around with her own HVAC system trying to DIY innovative ways to improve her indoor air. These days, my mom is constantly watching videos on YouTube about improving your heating and cooling power while also improving your indoor air quality. She’s worked up all sorts of makeshift cleaning tools and supposed air quality detectors. I’ve been so tired of hearing about her obsession with air quality and improving her central heating and cooling system and I decided to be a bit of a smart ass for her birthday last year. When the big day rolled around, she found dozens of identical boxes wrapped and hidden throughout her house. As she started opening them, she quickly realized that every single one contained a 12-pack of new air filters for her HVAC system.

Cold symptoms and dirty heating unit

In the past several years I don’t think that I’ve fallen sick one single time.

  • This is pretty astounding to me, because I used to fall ill all the time.

In my old region of the country, it felt like I constantly had some kind of head cold, stomach bug, or lingering fever. I was constantly popping pills, taking allergy meds, and putting myself to sleep with cold medicine. I can’t say that it was the healthiest lifestyle. Since I moved to a different region of the country, I’ve noticed a steep increase in my personal health. I literally can’t remember the last time that I had a nasty cough or stuffy nose. That’s why I was completely shocked the day that I woke up to find a massive head cold had taken over. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t speak, and I could barely even think because there is so much pressure in my head. I started taking medicines and trying to nurse myself back to health, but I was so cold that it was difficult to even go out to the drugstore. I sat in the house, shivering, and running of the central heater intensively as I could. I think I had the thermostat turned up to 85 degrees for several days. No matter how much Hot air was pumped into the house, I never felt much warmer. After a few weeks of this nonsense, I called out an HVAC technician to tune up my poor, hard-working furnace. When he was examining the heating system, the tech turned around with a shocked expression and asked me if I had been feeling alright. Apparently the air ducts were full of black mold.

Saving energy with less heater use

I even went down to the main rental office to complain about my indoor air conditioner, but there was a note saying that they were closed for the day

For the past four months I’ve been scrimping and saving as much as possible. I’ve been trying to rebuild a life and start from scratch. It has been a difficult learning experience, to say the least. Before this point in my life, money was not a big issue. I was making enough each month to pay my bills and have plenty to spare. At the beginning of this summer, however, everything changed. My relationship ended and so did my living situation. My ex took a great deal of my money and belongings, so I’ve been starting all over again on my own. It has been an uphill battle as far as establishing a regular adult life. I got my own apartment, which was a step in the right direction… But the landlord is terrible. These days, I’m living with a sub-par air conditioning system that I can’t seemed to improve on my own. When it first started pumping out warm air, I went online and try to fix the system on my phone. After that didn’t work, I turned to traditional means of complaining. Unfortunately, when I try to contact to the landlord about my broken air conditioner, he never answers his phone. I tried to email him about the busted cooling system, but I’ve never received a response. I even went down to the main rental office to complain about my indoor air conditioner, but there was a note saying that they were closed for the day. I’ve been living in hazardous, hot and humid conditions for over a month now. I have no idea how to improve my living situation without the help with my landlord, so I have called out my own HVAC Tech. You can be sure, when I’m sitting in Ice Cold Air Conditioning again, I’ll be sure to send the bill to my landlord.

HVAC on long train ride

When I tell people that I routinely Drive between Illinois and Georgia, they are often shocked.

I get the strangest reactions, and I can’t help but laugh at how dramatic people are.

They always explain something about taking a plane instead. My response to this is to complain about how uncomfortable and anxiety inducing I find airports. Sometimes they you tried to convince me that I would actually be saving time and money by a jumping on a plane or train, but I just shake my head and go back to planning my long road trip in the car. I am such a fan of driving that it would take a lot for me to consider traveling by plane or train. In fact, the last time that I took a train it was one of the coldest experiences of my life. It was the middle of summer, so I dressed in a light sundress to combat the heat. I got on the train and realized what a massive mistake this was. The air conditioning on the train was blowing at full power. It seems like they were air vents installed in every location. I had no way to get away from the cold, gusts of frigid try are created by the onboard air conditioning system. I sat down in my seat and looked around for some sort of air conditioning vent that I might be able to turn down. However, I couldn’t find any customizable air vent in the place. for the next 12 hours, I sat perfectly still and shivered in my seat. I didn’t sleep a wink and had massively tense shoulders by the time I got off the train. When it comes to traveling comfortably, I’m just going to rely on my car’s HVAC system.
