I just didn’t like that

My husband Barry is a HVAC contractor and it used to be a great job for him and I.

He could job a good 9-5 task but not worry about taking time off for a vacation or two a year.

The job was not harsh on his body, low stress and he liked it. The HVAC supplier he worked for changed ownership and policies. The new owner has an after hours service policy. Anytime a HVAC contractor takes an after hour service call they get bonus money. You can sign up for after hour service or days. So if a customer calls at 4 in the morning right before a major holiday, a HVAC contractor can make a ton of money doing that heating system repair. I do not like this policy because I am not motivated by cash, and my husband Barry loves making extra money. He has signed up for every potential emergency service situation. Barry must be the only one that did it too due to he gets called all the time. Barry and I have been at the bowling alley, out to a bar or just resting up in bed when he has to leave. Barry then is gone for over an hour messing with someone’s heater and a/c plan. My husband Barry is excited by all the extra money he is raking in. I do not like it though since making any sort of plan is impossible. Barry is regularly anxious about getting a phone call. He also won’t go on trip anymore and possibly miss a few calls.

I was very busy

I spend a lot of hours in the office.

I have tons of things on my mind. I supervise a lot of people and have my own projects to deal with. When I am at home, I am regularly forgetting things since I don’t have the brain power anymore. I frequently forget to turn off my stove when I leave the house. I usually leave the bathroom faucet leaking water too. The best thing I ever bought though was my smart thermostat. I used to not be good to the poor HVAC system. I would turn heating on in the afternoon and then just forget about it. Then I would come back to a house late at night to the house seriously heated for no reason. In the summer time I would turn on the A/C and then the house would be cold for no one in there. Buying a smart thermostat stopped all of this, and at first, the thermostat scans your house to see if there is anyone in the space. If nobody is home, the thermostat shuts the HVAC off on its own. I no longer had to worry about leaving the heater system or A/C plan on, and after this, the thermostat will see that you arrive house and start up the HVAC. No thinking about this at all for me now. But, the best is that I have set a week to week HVAC program. I have the smart thermostat all set up to begin heating in the afternoon, turn off when I am at work and then to pre-cool the house before I arrive from work.

Heating a swimming pool

I recently got an inground swimming pool for the house.

Pools are a good investment but are way more expensive than you would think. And, once you have got the hold dug, the pool put in locale and all the equipment, it is a hefty price tag! So when the pool person tried to get myself and others to buy a pool heating system I said no way. I thought this was a scam. I live in the south, so why would I need a heater for the pool? The south is hot basically all year long! Even the Winter season is not that bad. I figured I would never use the heating device anyway. Well, after buying an expensive pool, I wanted to use it all the time; The outdoor air would be warm, but my water was super cold. I tried using a solar cover and that is only good if you want the top layer of water to be sort of hot rather than chilly. I finally started looking at pool oil furnaces since I was desperate to swim when it was cooler out. I then found an interesting little tidbit online, and you can use your boiler plan to heat a swimming pool, a boiler on its own has a bunch of water in it that it is heating. The boiler can be hooked to the family water tank and be a heater. You can set up piping to the boiler and put it in the flooring, but, you can take piping and extend it outdoors to the swimming pool. That is how I have a pool heating system in the yard. The boiler plan works great and my bills are not too bad with it.

Sick of those places

At night the heating idea smelled like something was burning up

My spouse love to travel just as much as I do. For the past few years, we have done definitely well financially so both of us have been taking more holidays. We treat ourselves to nicer restaurants as well as hotels because we are able to afford these things now. We have no youngsters right now either so we are trying to enjoy the time both of us have together while we have extra money to spend on holidays.Taking lavish holidays was not constantly the usual thing for us. We have been to several motels as well as eaten fast foods before. I remember one time clearly that was horrible. We decided to take a long road trip around the country… In order to save some money we booked at very cheap motels along the way. All we cared about was seeing the country, not where we were staying. In this hotel the heating & cooling idea didn’t work at all. Since we were in the desert, it got very hot during the afternoon and freezing freezing at night. There was no air conditioning at all coming from the vents when we wanted to cool off. At night the heating idea smelled like something was burning up. I called the front desk and asked about the heating & cooling idea but they said it was like this in every room. I know you get what you pay for when it comes to hotels. Now all the hotels we stay in have a top of the line heating as well as cooling systems.

We were in the desert so it got really tepid during the day plus frosty cold at night. There was no air at all coming out of the vents. When we wanted to cool off in the room plus at night the furnace smelled like something was on fire. I called the front desk plus asked about the heating plus cooling system plus they said it was like this in every room.

Hotel heating and air

My wife and I enjoy travelling.

These past few years we have done entirely well for ourselves so we have been taking more getaways.

We treat ourselves to finer diners and hotels because we are able to afford these things now. We don’t have any kids right now either so we are trying to take advantage of the time we have together while we have extra cash to spend on getaways. Going on costly getaways was not always the norm for us. We have been to several motels and eaten at gas stations before…I vividly remember one time that was horrible. We decided we wanted to take a long road trip around the country, so in order to save some cash we booked genuinely cheap motels along the way. We cared about was seeing the country not where we were staying. In this hotel the heating and cooling idea didn’t work at all. We were in the desert so it got really hot during the morning and freezing cold at evening. There was no air conditioning at all coming out of the vents when we wanted to cool off in the room.In the evening the heating idea smelled like something was on fire. I called the front desk and asked about the heating and cooling idea and they said it was this way in every room. I think you get what you pay for when it comes to hotels because now all the hotels we stay in have a top of the line heating and cooling systems.

Not a good answer

They searched everywhere

I was working for a heating as well as cooling company multiple years ago when I made the biggest mistake… I was not a heating as well as cooling specialist, but I was in charge of accounting as well as depositing money into the company’s bank account. In the store room, there was a heating as well as cooling device set to go out to a home, as well as I ended up setting the bucket with the money on top of it. I went to have a quick meeting, then came back about thirty minutes later to find that the money was gone! I was kicking myself for being so foolish in deciding to leave that bucket of money right in the store room when shipments were being made. Since this was all my fault, I was determined to fix it before the boss could find out. I searched the building from wall to wall, but I had no luck. I then went on to call a few of the heating as well as a/c specialists that had Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C replacement appointments. The few I called did not have any idea where the bucket was at. They searched everywhere. I thought for sure I was in major trouble now! At this point, I was just about to confess to my boss the dumb move I made placing the money bucket on top of the heating as well as a/c unit. Then, the iphone rang. It was 1 of the heating as well as a/c specialists I had previously called! They said they found the bag! I was so happy!

Air conditioner tune-up

Making the wrong move

I started by calling a few of the heating plus air conditioner specialists that had Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C installation appointments.

I used to work for a heating and cooling company many years ago. I did not work as a heating and cooling specialist, but rather, I was in charge of accounting. It was my responsibility to deposit cash into the company’s bank account. I did my job well, but I made a crucial error one day that almost cost me my job.There was a heating plus cooling unit set to go out to a home, which I ended up setting the basket with the cash on top of. I went to a quick meeting, and when I came back a few minutes later, it was gone! I was so mad at myself for not being more careful! Leaving that large basket of cash on the heating plus air conditioner unit that was about to be delivered! I scoured the floors around where it was set, in case it may have fell off, but nope, it was not there! Knowing it was all my fault, I was not going to tell the boss! So, I went searching for the mysterious heating plus air conditioner unit that was on a truck somewhere. I started by calling a few of the heating plus air conditioner specialists that had Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C installation appointments. The few I called did not have any clue where the basket was at, but they assured me that they would look everywhere. I was sure that I was in major trouble now! At this point, I was just about to come clean to our boss about the dumb choice I made placing the cash basket on top of the heating plus air conditioner unit. Then, the PC rang. One of the heating plus air conditioner specialists I had previously called said they found the bag! I was so ecstatic!

The choice was easy

When I was younger, I worked for a heating and cooling company.

  • I was not a heating in addition to cooling specialist, although I was in charge of accounting in addition to depositing currency into the company’s bank account… One day, I made a huge mistake.

I used to transport all the money from the office to the bank in one big box. One day before heading off to lunch, I set the box on top of an HVAC component that was soon to be shipped off to a home for installation. When I came back an hour later, it was gone! I could not fathom how foolish I had been! How could I leave that big tote of currency on the heating in addition to a/c component that was about to be delivered!? I checked the floors around where it was set, in case it may have fell off, but I had no luck. Because this was all my fault, I was avoiding telling the boss at all costs. I went on the hunt for the mysterious heating in addition to a/c component that was on a truck anywhere. At first, I called a few of the heating in addition to a/c specialists that had Heating plus Air Conditioning upgrade appointments. The few I called did not have any information on the whereabouts of the box. They checked everywhere. I thought for sure I was in major trouble now! At this point, I was just about to confess to our boss and accept the punishment when the phone rang. To my relief, one of the HVAC specialists found the box! I couldn’t have been more relieved.
