I’m Experiencing Hot Flashes

Ever since I got pregnant and entered the third trimester, I’ve been experiencing crazy hot flashes.

I’ve always heard and seen women on TV fanning themselves to stay cool while they’re pregnant, but I always assumed it was an exaggeration.

Sadly, I’ve discovered that it isn’t an exaggeration and I’ve become one of those fanning women. The hot flashes come out of nowhere. I can be sitting on the couch relaxing, when my skin becomes really hot to the touch and my cheeks flare up to a rosey red color. I wish there was a way to prevent the hot flashes, but my doctor says there’s nothing much I can do. My body is just having a difficult time regulating temperature, since a lot of my blood is flowing to the baby. However, he recommended a few suggestions to stay cool. Obviously, I could wear lightweight and breathable clothing. However, that wasn’t a concern for me. My doctor also suggested investing in a few portable fans to set around me whenever I was at home. I went out and purchased 3 portable fans that afternoon! One for my bedroom, one for the living room, and one for the kitchen. Whenever I’m lounging, I place the fan directly on me, so I can feel as much cool air as possible. This has helped a little, but there are still some situations when I can’t cool down. During those times I either sit in front of the freezer, or I lay beside the air conditioning vents with the temperature as low as possible. I don’t even want to see our next utility bill.

My kids love going to the zoo

My kids are animal lovers, and they won’t even let the cold weather keep them away from our zoo.

They all have their own favorite animals at the zoo, and they seem to think that the animals will miss them if we don’t go there every couple of weeks.

I tried to tell them that the animals won’t get mad or sad if we don’t show up so often, but they really don’t believe me for some reason. Now, even though the temperature outside has to be in the teens, they are still begging me to go to the zoo. I told them that we really need to stay at home with our nice warm heating system on full blast. Or I told them that we could watch a movie in front of the fireplace. They aren’t interested in that, though. I know that they are just going to keep on bugging me until I take them to the freezing cold zoo, so I might as well just say goodbye to my nice warm house and my oil furnace. If the zoo had some of those portable propane heaters to place here and there around the zoo, it would help a lot. As it is, though, only the larger indoor animal pens are heated, like the ones for the elephants. Finding a building with a furnace that’s running is kind of hard at the zoo. You just walk around in the cold until you find an open building where the heating is running and then you can warm up a bit. Then it’s back out into the cold where you’re wishing for a furnace or a fireplace. I guess I will go to the zoo, but I hope my kids appreciate all of these sacrifices!

I love my job but my wife hates when I have to work extra hours

Working as an HVAC technician is the best job that I can think of.

  • I love messing around with all different kinds of HVAC systems, from a regular old oil furnace all the way to a high tech radiant heated flooring system.

It’s just something that I love doing. I have always been interested in heating and cooling systems, from the time that I was a little kid. I’m not sure why I like it so much, but I’m glad that I do. I make a really good living by working at a local HVAC company here in town, and I am able to support my wife and family really well with the salary I get paid. The only thing that causes problems about my job is the fact that sometimes I have to work overtime at the HVAC company and my wife hates that. She especially hates it when I have to sign up to take care of heating and cooling emergencies that come up on weekends or holidays. I told her that it’s only fair for the different HVAC technicians at work to take turns working on holidays, but she doesn’t want to hear it. Every time I am on call on a holiday and a heating or cooling emergency comes in, she gets super mad at me. I don’t know why she acts like it’s my fault! It’s not like I go out and tear up people’s furnaces and central air conditioning units on purpose just to get away from home. That’s how she seems to think it is, though.

Putting the office HVAC problems behind us

I find it highly bizarre what people will fight with each other over.

Football allegiances and politics are a given.

But going to war over an HVAC temperature setting? I am the office manager for a company here in town. And, I have had to haul a number of people into my office to settle a sorts of grievances. There have been people who just could not get along. So, I have had to find creative solutions to make things work. I mean we are talking about people’s livelihoods here. It’s not like I can simply fire someone for not being able to get along. However, I have had to go to that when I’ve had people who were physically aggressive and hostile. But mostly, it just doesn’t come to that. I do my best to either separate people physically in the office or move them on to different projects in the name of harmony. Working in an office environment isn’t all that easy. I think anyone that has had to do it would concur. It is up to the manager to be sure that there is as much comfort as possible for people to be able to thrive. I take great pride in doing just that. The latest challenge was a doozy. Two factions developed inside our office over the HVAC setting. This happened unbeknownst to me until I saw two people get in a near physical altercation in front of the HVAC unit. I solved this by installing a smart thermostat. This thing was able to more precisely manage the HVAC temperature and, I was the only one with the manual override code.

Updating old home with modern HVAC

Not to long ago, I got the shock of a lifetime.

I am not what you would call a very exciting sort of person. I pretty much keep my head down and do my own thing. My life is all about doing the best I can while showing love and respect to others. It’s pretty mundane but it sure works for me. Subsequently, I have never made a great deal of money so I have had to live in rental units for my entire life. There really hasn’t been a big deal about renting other than I wish I could have been building equity. At the end of the day, I was just thankful to have a roof over my head and some HVAC comfort. However, one afternoon, I opened the front door to receive a registered letter. Apparently, I had a long lost aunt that I knew virtually nothing about. Well, she had decided to leave me her home when she died. I was beyond blown away. What’s more is that she lived not even an hour from where I was currently calling home. It would be nothing to move to the other side of the county as both places were about equidistant to where I work. The house was a bit of a shambles as my aunt had spent the last 6 or 7 years in a retirement home. However, the house was just awesome. I knew it would take some work but, it would be so worth it. The first thing I noticed was the lack of any modern HVAC. I had an HVAC contractor come to help me figure out what HVAC method would be best. We settled on using a series of ductless heating & cooling units throughout the home.

My kids are creature lovers, plus they won’t even let the chilly weather keep them away from our zoo. They all have their own number one creatures at the zoo, plus they seem to suppose that the creatures will miss them if the people I was with and I don’t go there every couple of weeks. I tried to tell them that the creatures won’t get mad or anxious if the people I was with and I don’t show up so often, however they legitimately don’t assume myself and others for some reason, then now, even though the temperature outside has to be in the teens, they are still begging myself and others to go to the zoo. I told them that the people I was with and I legitimately need to stay at beach apartment with our nice warm heating system on full blast, however or I told them that the people I was with and I could watch a film in front of the fireplace. They aren’t interested in that, though. I think that they are just going to keep on bugging myself and others until I take them to the chilly chilly zoo, so I might as well just say goodbye to my nice warm apartment plus my oil furnace. If the zoo had some of those portable propane furnaces to locale here plus there around the zoo, it would help a lot; As it is, though, only the larger indoor creature pens are heated, adore the 1s for the elephants.

DIY Tips In Installing Your Central Cooling System

Central air conditioning systems are one of the most popular types of air conditioning systems in the US. A lot of people found the unit convenient to install and accessible. It is very efficient in such a way that one single click of a switch will keep the whole house cool and air conditioned. If you are planning to buy an air conditioner system, you may have been thinking of installing it on your own. Sure, you can! If done properly, your central cooling system will be installed in no time and will be ready to be enjoyed by your family. Here are some tips that may help you. Find a good location outside the house. The central air conditioning system should be installed outside and will be connected to your home’s ductwork. There are two ways to do this. The first option is to install the unit on your roof. Or, you can consider pouring a concrete pad to place it on. Whichever option you end up doing, make sure that the location has adequate airflow so that excess noise can be avoided. Also, enough space and adequate air flow provides enough space for maintenance. Make sure that the ductwork and other parts are installed in an energy-efficient manner. Check the ductwork first and make sure it is properly sealed. Check if there is air leaking out as this would mean less fresh air traveling to your house. Leaking in the ductwork may also mean higher electric bills later on. Consider the safety for a DIY central air installation. If your new central air conditioning system is meant to replace an old one, check if the old unit still has any remaining refrigerant. This has to be removed by a technician with an EPA refrigerant handling certification or by somebody who has enough experience to safely remove the old material. If the new unit already has a refrigerant, you may not need to reuse the refrigerant from the old unit. Remember, removing a refrigerant without proper training is very dangerous. And thus, every homeowner must think twice about this, and may want to consider the service of a professional service instead.

The dentist has a great HVAC system

I just went to our dentist’s office the other morning to have my usual yearly teeth cleaning.

This is something that I need to do every year for lots of reasons.

The only thing I actually dislike about going to the dentist’s for my yearly teeth cleaning is the long wait in the waiting room. That tends to get a bit much, because sometimes I could be stuck in there for a few hours if I don’t have my appointment set up ahead of time. However, on the plus side of all that, at least our dentist’s office has a quality heating and air conditioning setup in it. They have a legitimately top notch commercial heating and air conditioner plan that has an industrial air purification plan in it as well. Being a dentist’s office, having the additional air purification plan running through the heating and air conditioner setup makes it so less germs can spread around from all the assorted people that are in the waiting room. And, I especially don’t mind being in that waiting room if I happen to put off my yearly teeth cleaning till the hot summer season months. That is because the air conditioner in there is to die for! It is better than any air conditioner I have ever been in the presence of. The air conditioner in our condo is somewhat good, but surely not as good as the air conditioner in the dentist’s office! I have mentioned this to our dentist before, and he seems to think that the power of a commercial heater and air conditioner is the main reason for this; it’s sad that you just can’t get the same results with residential heating, ventilation, and A/C systems.
