Unexpected Savior

Of all the things in this world, I least expected an air conditioner to be the object to save my life.

I had always been a generally healthy person.

A few slight colds here and there, but other than that, I was very rarely sick. Last year, I was at my office when I began to feel a bit off. The feeling continued throughout the work day and I considered telling my boss I needed to go home, but ultimately decided against it. I was writing a very important report when suddenly, the memory stops. The next thing I remember is waking up on the ground next to an HVAC machine. I was terribly confused, but the unit had ended up saving my life! I had somehow contracted a very aggressive illness that rose my temperature to dangerous heights in very little time. A coworker had seen my head down and thought I was sleeping. However, when she tried to wake me up I would not open my eyes. Apparently I was very warm to the touch and they could all see that it was a dire situation. They called an ambulance, which apparently was a whole twenty minutes away. Not knowing how much time I had before the fever completely took over, they had covered me in ice cubes and positioned me in front of the air conditioner. The ice cubes melted fast, so the air conditioner was their last hope to keep me going until the medics arrived. Luckily, the medics did arrive in time, and I made a full recovery. The doctor said that without the quick thinking of my coworkers who put me in front of the air conditioner, I may not have made it. Today, I owe my life to them, and the air conditioner!

Life In Color

When I was born, I was born with a condition in which I can only see in shades of black and white.

My eyes never developed the ability to detect color.

Because of this, my other senses have become even stronger. I can still see, but with eyesight that is not quite up to par as others, it is nice to know that I can rely on my other senses. For example. If a stove top was red hot, you would know not to touch it or you would get burned. I would be unable to see that red color and therefore would be more susceptible to being burned. However, my sense of touch as become very strong so that I would feel the heat radiating from the stove before I even lifted my hand towards it. This can also have its negative effects, however. Like in the winter, I get extremely cold extremely easily. To combat this problem, I have a very strong furnace as a part of my HVAC system. I also have a heavy duty air conditioner for the warmer months. If either my air conditioner or my furnace were to break down, I would be able to tell almost immediately. This means I do not need one of those new mobile thermostats to connect to my smartphone because I can feel the temperature myself, I do not even need to look at the screen to tell when it needs adjusting. There are good and back aspects to being fully color blind,but I choose to look at the positives.

All Time Low

Being sick is something that I have gotten used to.

It is quite sad, but I have an immune system that just can not keep up with all the bacteria and viruses of the world.

I take certain medicines to help with this issue, but they do not defer me from taking my fair share of sick days. As most people know, having a fever is a very uncomfortable feeling. Because I spend so much of my time in a feverish state, it is imperative to my comfort that I have a very efficient HVAC system. The amount spent on this system is a lot I admit, but in the end I find myself using it very often and therefore it was well worth it all. One one’s body temperature is high, it is common to feel hot and sweaty. But, when the temperature passes a certain threshold, the body tries to make up for the high temps and cool the body down. This can cause confusion and a sensation known as the chills. It is a feeling of intense coldness that is not satiated by any amount of heat or blankets. As a fever teeters over and under the threshold, you can feel hot one moment and freezing the next. This is why an HVAC system is so important. Using the air conditioner when sweating and the furnace when cold is easy enough, but both HVAC units have to be strong enough to combat each other because they are used in such a short period of time. My furnace and air conditioner are lifesavers when it comes to being comfortable when ill.

Childhood Stories

My daughter is arguably the cutest darn thing in this world. I may be biased, but she is more adorable than any child I have even seen in my entire life. I spend as much time with her as I can, although I do work full time at an HVAC shop. She has a lot of fun at daycare, but I know that I should be with her more often than I previously am. Because of this I take every opportunity possible to spend time with my little girl. In the mornings, I wake her up and involve her in my morning routine. We brush our teeth together, eat breakfast together, and review my HVAC schedule for the day. After work, I pick her up from daycare and we head home for the night. Sometimes I stop to get her ice cream before dinner, she loves that! We then cook and eat dinner followed by playing outside if the weather permits, or watching TV and playing board games. Before bed, we brush our teeth for the second time, I take a shower then she takes a bath, and it is time for bed. She will not fall asleep without her bedtime story however. Her favorite is the one where the scary and evil old lady tries to push our hero into a furnace. My daughter used to be terrified of furnaces because of this, but we have moved past this fear as she continues to grow older and more mature. The hero then escapes the furnace and saves all of their friends from the antagonist and pushes the evil lady into the fiery furnace. It is a simple story, but my daughter loves it. I only want to keep her healthy and happy!

Hoarding Cars And HVAC

My life as a professional organizer can provide some quite peculiar living situations.

There are some people that feel the need for material things even more intensely than the need for human companionship.

This leads them to continue obtaining new objects and storing them wherever they see fit. Because of this, over time a person’s home can become engulfed by these objects. Sometimes this disorder pertains to a certain type of item such as books, animals, or even trash. Others may have the urge to collect items that are large, and therefore cause problems. For example, one man I worked with was obsessed with two types of machinery, cars and HVAC systems! His back yard was actually a junk yard with old cars as far as the eye can see. Some looked as if they had not been driven in decades, but the man just did not want to give them up. When I ventured inside his home, I could barely make my way around the house because it was filled up with HVAC systems. Air conditioners, furnaces, thermostats, and every other HVAC machine you could think of was scattered all over the floor and built up to the ceiling. I could be wrong, but I do not think any of them were still in working condition. Not only were they old and rusty, but the house was too cold to have had a furnace running! Luckily I was able to work with this man to clean up his home and backyard. He still enjoys his machines, but he now keeps his inventory to a manageable amount.

HVAC maintenance and air purifier help with allergy symptoms

I suffer from severe allergy issues.

I am allergic to dust, dander, fragrances, pollen and just about anything that lingers in the air.

I am reluctant to spend much time outdoors because of exhaust fumes, bugs, flowers and an unlimited supply of allergens. At least I can control the air quality within my home. I go to great lengths to maintain a clean and healthy indoor environment. I keep the windows securely shut at all times and have caulked, weatherstripped and insulated to eliminate any leaks in the thermal envelope. I rely on my heating and cooling equipment all year round. To ensure that the furnace and air conditioner help rather than hinder air quality, I have enrolled in a service plan with a professional HVAC company. They send a licensed technician to the house every spring to service the air conditioner and in the fall to take care of the furnace. Because of annual cleaning, tuning and troubleshooting, my essential systems operate at peak efficiency, capacity and reliability. Plus, the inner workings are kept free of any buildup of contaminants. This not only promotes maximum airflow but avoids the introduction of pollutants into breathing air. I’ve also invested in an air purifier to further trap airborne particulate, eliminate odors and kill microorganisms. The air purifier runs round-the-clock and silently, targeting the air as it passes through the heating and cooling equipment. It captures mold spores, smoke particles, dander and particulate smaller than a grain of beach sand. The combination of HVAC maintenance and air purifier has greatly improved my quality of life.

Modern boilers are much different than those from my childhood

There was a time when a boiler was a huge piece of machinery.

When I was growing up, my grandparents had a boiler heater installed in their basement.

The unit was extremely large, noisy and required constant maintenance. We needed to walk down the stairs, turn a valve and fill the boiler with water every day. The boiler was linked to radiators installed in each of the rooms. The radiators were extremely unattractive, took up a great deal of space and made a hissing noise whenever they started up. My grandparents continually warned my sister and I away from the radiators because they became dangerously hot to the touch. Because of my childhood experiences with my grandparents’ boiler, I never wanted this style of heating system. However, shortly after I got married, my husband and I found the ideal house in the perfect location and it was equipped with a boiler. I was surprised to discover that the boiler was very compact. Instead of bulky radiators, the house features a combination of streamlined baseboard heaters and radiant flooring. None of the equipment gets hot to the touch or makes any sound at all. It provides a wonderfully gentle and even heating. There are no drafts or cold spots and minimal stratification. The boiler requires only annual maintenance and is exceptionally energy efficient. It doesn’t introduce any pollutants into our breathing air and doesn’t dry out the air. The boiler is definitely one of the best features of the house. No matter how cold the winter weather gets, our home is always warm and cozy.
