I love video games

I was finally done with my job for the day! Nothing beats a feeling quite like going and finishing a job. The rest of the day awaits, you can sleep in, plus do whatever your heart desires. I’m pretty casual. I have my hobbies, but my top hobby is playing video games. I had been trying to beat this one unique game for quite some time now. I had a goal to beat it this weekend. So, I went home and immediately powered up my game system. Maybe a few hours into playing, I noticed I was perspiring badly. My Heating and A/C plan was definitely not working well. I was supposed to get my cooling system repaired a few months ago, but I bought a new video game instead. I got up, attempted to adjust my temperature control to see if the cooling system had some life left in it, but it didn’t work. My cooling system stayed off. I sighed and paused the game before calling my usual Heating and A/C business. The owner gave me a lecture about priorities but agreed to send out a Heating and A/C professional immediately. The Heating and A/C corporation owner happened to be my aunt, so that’s why she lectured me. She knew about my video game obsession. So, the Heating and A/C professional checked my cooling system, plus performed some minor repairs. She told me it would only be a temporary fix, but that I really needed a new cooling system soon. I would have to put my video game obsession on hold for the time being! I had to save up for a new cooling system.

Video games and HVAC

I was finally done with my work for the day! I can’t think of any feeling quite like finishing a work day in a Friday afternoon. The weekend awaits, you can sleep in, and do whatever your heart desires. I’m pretty easy going. I have my hobbies, but my favorite is playing video games. I had been trying to beat this one particular game for quite some time now. I had a goal to beat it this weekend. So, I went home, and powered up my game system. About ten minutes into playing, I started sweating badly. My HVAC system was not working very well lately. I was supposed to get my air conditioner repaired a few months ago, but I bought a new video game system instead. I got up, and tried to adjust my thermostat to see if the air conditioner had some life left in it. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. My air conditioner remained lifeless. I groaned, paused the game, and called my usual HVAC business. The owner gave me a lecture about priorities, but agreed to send out an HVAC technician right away. The HVAC business owner happened to be my uncle, so that’s why he lectured me. He new about my video game obsession. So, the HVAC technician inspected my air conditioner, and performed some minor repairs. He told me it would only be a temporary fix, and that I definitely needed a new air conditioner soon. I would have to put my video game obsession on hold for the time being! I had to save up for a new air conditioner.

I’m finally ready to admit to defeat

I live in a fairly small town in the south, and the people I was with and I don’t get much action in the way of top chefs and superb modern diners… Recently though, the people I was with and I had a superb modern diner open in our little area. It is a welcome addition to the area, and everyone is ecstatic for a modern choice to add to the ancient number ones. The owner and chef has worked in world renowned diners, and apprenticed with top name chefs from around the globe! Now he’s here, in our cute seaside town and just opened a farm to table eatery. Opening night was packed with a wait around the block, however so worth it. A few weeks later some coworkers and I went back for an event they were hosting, and I could barely contain our enthusiasm. I raved to my fellow workers about the diner, the glorious food, and the chef. Once the people I was with and I got seated, I could not know it, but I was honestly chilly, but have you ever been to a diner where the servers are all in long sleeves and pants, and not breaking a sweat, however the shoppers need Winter season coats? It was that times ten. The air conditioning must have been set on the lowest possible setting, as it could not have been over 66 degrees in there. I was looking around expecting them to roll out ice sculptures as area of the event. The flavor of the food was still actually delicious, however it was not hot, and I was shivering while eating it. I quietly walked to the hostess and mentioned that all of our food was cold due to the impossibly low temperature of the air conditioning unit. In fact, I was not sure the diner could survive unless they changed the the air conditioning to a much more adequate temperature. I could not love the food because I was so cold.

I did not have any money

“No Problem”, that’s my motto! I got it from my dad who taught me to face life’s challenges with a positive attitude. You see, it’s all about having the right mindset, when you meet a challenge. Dad would always tell me, problems are really opportunities in disguise. My dad, was a cool guy, with a great outlook on life. Sometimes it can be hard to stick by that motto. It wasn’t always easy for my dad, I’m sure. My mom died when I was 8 and dad took over raising me on his own. Yet, he never gave up. I try to keep that in mind, to help me see the challenges I face. It helps me put things in perspective. In comparison to losing my mom, pretty much anything else is truly no problem. So, last week when my air conditioner stopped working,  on the hottest day of the summer, when most people would have gotten hopping mad, my reaction was to remind myself that it was no big deal. Even though I really didn’t have any extra money to pay for the repairs, it had to be done. So,“No problem”, I thought to myself, as I called the HVAC repairman. When he showed up, three hours later than he said he would, most people would have been angry, but not me. “No problem.”, I told the AC repair tech. He seemed relieved, I guess he was expecting to get yelled at. About an hour later, the fellow comes over to where I was sitting, with the fan blowing cool air in my direction. I offered him a cold drink, which he happily accepted, however, he said he had some bad news he needed to tell me. I told him it was no problem. He should sit down and rest a minute and cool off. The poor guy was sweating like a race horse at the Kentucky Derby. It occurred to me, for a person who makes his living helping other people stay cool, an HVAC repairman’s job is hot and uncomfortable work. The HVAC repair technician explained, as he sipped his ice cold sweet tea, that my AC unit was in very bad shape. He explained that it would need at least $500 in parts to repair it. I just smiled at him and calmly replied, if that’s what it takes, no problem, but, I did want to know how much will the total job be, with labor and everything? That’s when I was surprised to hear the repairman respond, with a smile on his face and a sparkle in his eye, for the kindness I’d shown him, “Why Sir, no charge for the labor. For you, it’s no problem.”

AC system at my school

When I was in college, I joined the school’s power-lifting team. Before or after class, weekday or weekend, my teammates and I would find time to train at least five times per week. The college spared no expense with the equipment of the gym. Though it wasn’t huge, the equipment was top-notch. Everything we needed, from belts and shoes to university apparel was provided to us or kept in a storage room adjacent to the gym. We were thankful, the air conditioning. There was no AC with the gym. Practicing without a cooling system is always horrible. Volleyball starts up inside the Summer too. We would do tryouts thereafter the team would practice with the Summer. The gym got so hot and stuffy inside Summer. I hated that there was clearly no AC relief for people during practice either. The closest thing we got is mostly a big stand up fan that we would need to beg a janitor to make us. The fan never helped a lot though. Not having air conditioning within a hot gym was such a safety hazard, as it forced us to constantly chug water to stay hydrated. Some guys would pass out from heat exhaustion before they even attempted a personal best. Most days, we’d call it before our training sessions were supposed to end just because the airflow was borderline torturous. We longed for our other pursuits, like playing music or writing, which could’ve been done from the comfort of our dorms or apartments. Some of our friends worked to join the school’s choir or band, and they’d almost always get to practice in a cool room.

Refreshing my air

So, I moved into an old rundown house this past spring. The house is located in the mountains, but they are is known to get all kind of climatic condition situations from extreme heat to bitter frosts. I knew at all that I would have to do many work on the place before I should have live in it as it had been vacant for years, but I loved the challenge. There was really no elegant heating and cooling system to consult within the entire house along with I knew right away that was going to be a problem. We live in a several season climate and this was going to be a necessity for standard living. I did, however the house did have a masonry fireplace set up in the main floor in the living room. We were told that his was their main method of obtaining heating before and that it worked rather effectively with the heat rising throughout the house. The realtor went over in more detail how we could save a lot of money by turning straight down the furnace or even not utilizing any type of zone heating as we had considered by merely getting a gas insert. With such an odd climate with storms of all occasion and power outages, we’re able to be assured heat whenever these occurred. But better yet, efficiency to our home in such a gas insert was immeasurable. I loved that individuals could find such awesome answers to the heating and cooling system even as are starting out and aiming to refresh our house!
