How the escape room in our area uses HVAC units to make it realistic

I don’t know if you have ever been to an escape room for a date night or with a group of friends, but if you haven’t you definitely should try it at least once. I was skeptical of these escape rooms at first because I am not really interested in puzzles, so I didn’t think I would enjoy it. Yesterday, I went to my first escape room, and it was a blast. What was really cool was that they used their HVAC units to make the experience more realistic. The storyline took you through the story of a man trying to escape off of a submarine within a certain time limit. You start out in your cabin with the air conditioner keeping you comfortable. Since your cabin is nicer than the rest, the air conditioner is keeping you very comfortable. As the submarine begins taking on water, they begin turning on humidifiers to make the air feel more humid. As time starts passing, you will notice that the settings on the dehumidifier begin to increase to demonstrate the increase of water. In the last room of the escape room, you find yourself in a heated engine room trying to find the key to leave. They used a powerful ductless mini-split air conditioner, which has a heating setting, to make the room feel muggy and toasty. The constant changing of climate makes it feel not only more realistic but also increases the stress as your body tries to adjust. I’m not sure if every escape room uses their HVAC equipment like this, but they should.

I hate the smell of heaters in the Winter

After being stored for so long, spiders begin to make cobwebs on the coils of the space heater.

I can’t stand strong smells in my house. While most people would agree that they don’t like to smell anything that is stinky, I would have to admit that even the slightest stinky or uncommon smells bother me to the point of gagging. My wife picks on me often for being overdramatic about the smells. One of the worst smells is in the Winter when we first begin using our HVAC units to keep our house warm. Our furnace is an older model, so it isn’t very efficient at heating the house when the temperature drops below a certain point. Because of this, we have discovered the supplemental heating helps lower our bills immensely, and we bought a lot of space heaters to help keep our house warm at a decent price. Rather than getting the oil-filled radiant space heaters that make the house feel warm and humid, we decided to get the coil heaters that make the house warm very quickly. Though they draw more electricity, they still were more efficient than the furnace, and we needed a lot of heat. Unfortunately, using those space heaters every Winter had a drawback. After being stored for so long, spiders begin to make cobwebs on the coils of the space heater. On top of that, dust and dirt also fall into the space heater. When you first turn the heater on, all you can smell for hours is the dust and cobwebs burning to a crisp, and it smells terrible. I immediately start gagging and have to leave my home. I wish we could just purchase a new furnace instead.

Dehumidifiers for our musty camp that floods

The campground that we volunteer at is a great benefit to society. We help people who come from bad homes and terrible backgrounds. The process of how we obtained the land for this adventure was a miracle, and we are very thankful that we get to do what we do. Unfortunately, there is a drawback to the land that we have. Since we live on lower land, our campus floods rapidly. In one building, in particular, it takes two HVAC units to help protect our building from permanent damage. This building is where the offices and adult hangouts are, and we have multiple air conditioners to help keep everyone comfortable. Without the air conditioners, this building becomes very muggy, and you immediately start noticing a musty smell that never seems to go away. In the hangout area, the air conditioner runs throughout the entire day, but their room barely feels cool enough to be comfortable. When it rains for a while, we have to pull out a different kind of HVAC unit. The flooding will soak all of the floors and carpets, and it creates a terrible musty smell that makes the ladies gag. In order to help prevent this, we obtained commercial dehumidifiers. These dehumidifiers draw the moisture out of the air and store the water up to a limit. When the dehumidifier gets full, it drains out of a hose into a drainage area outside. Though the process is not pretty nor fun, these HVAC units help make our lowlands campground a place where we are able to serve people.

When I was young, only the living room had an air conditioner

Long before the introduction of central air conditioning, many of us were left to our own devices outdoors, where we learned to survive without air conditioning of any sort.

We let our imaginations wander, and some of us were lucky enough to have a small creek or pond where we could cool off if it ever got warm.

My family was lucky enough to own an air conditioner, but it was a simple window air conditioner. However, most kids didn’t have an air conditioner in our neighborhood, so I was very lucky. The only downside was that the air conditioner was only in the living room. This was great whenever my parents weren’t in the house, because we would have the air conditioner and the television all to ourselves. However, when my mom was in the living room, we would have to watch the most boring television dramas that only Satan could have devised. It was better to play outside with no air conditioning than to spend time watching that garbage. With my dad, it was better because he watched sports. I could endure sports for a time with air conditioning, but eventually, I would go outside. When I grew up and purchased my own house, I remember the excitement of having an air conditioner in my living room and my bedroom. I could do whatever I wanted and always be cool. In my old house, since we only had an air conditioner in the living room, we were hot and stuffy whenever we tried to sleep in our uncooled bedrooms. I am glad that those days are over.

A foreign place to me

The best part about moving into a new home is getting to change it and make it start to feel like home. It is always a bit hard at first to get a feel for the house and know what you want to change. My partner and I have lived in several houses together and we have come to deal with this problem a number of times. Over this time we have both come to the conclusion that the best thing to do is to switch up the heating and cooling unit. By making an upgrade to a state of the art heated gas furnace or perhaps even radiant flooring you will feel a dramatic shift in the overall feeling in the house due to the upgrade. The home will feel much warmer and welcoming than before without a doubt. With this major sense of change you feel as each day passes, the entire area will quickly start to feel less like a foreign place and more like your new home. Once you start to get a hold of that feeling then the possibilities are endless. You will start to see what you like and what you want to change about the house quicker and with much less uncertainty about it. Just make sure that you work with a reputable HVAC ventilation, heating and cooling company however. They are the ones responsible for the installation, therefore you need to know you can trust them to be the ones that will change the entire feeling of your home that is going to spark the change.

No more field trips

From when I was a kid in elementary school to the present day where my oldest child is in elementary school it blows my mind just how much things have changed over the years.

  • When I was a little kid, I can still think back to all the times of getting drove back home and going on field trips on buses that didn’t have any air conditioning whatsoever! By the time I would get home I would be so sweaty that my mom would ask me if I ran home.

Last week when I went on a field trip with my daughter as a parent guardian I saw first hand that things have changed. I was prepared to get on the same old bus with no air conditioning, and instead of that, I was greeted with a wave of cool and fresh air when I got on. The bus had a state of the art air conditioning system installed that was keeping the entire bus right around seventy degrees and it stayed like that for the entire duration of the trip. I think that a/c unit might be better quality than the one we have back at home! I don’t know if my daughter is old enough to realize it but she should be thankful that she didn’t have to go to school in my day when the bus felt more similar to a sauna than anything else! I can’t complain though, because now that I know the school trips are going to be like driving in a luxury bus each time I am going to volunteer for every single trip until my kid graduates!

Things are looking up

After thinking about it for a minute I packed up the air conditioning unit and had it installed at my apartment within a few hours

The year of 2018 was a year of extreme failures and headaches for me. From relationship problems, money problems, all the way to problems at the gym. As the year of 2019 was approaching I told myself that this year was going to be the year that I turned things around. As look back on the last half of the year to see how far I have come, it is clear to see that I have done just that! I think that my turn of luck can be traced back all the way to the beginning of the year when I was driving home from work. On my way home I saw what looked to be a computer or television on the side of the road with a note. After looking at it a bit closer I noticed that it was a state of the art air conditioning unit with a note that said “first come first serve”. I hadn’t had any working air conditioning in my apartment for the last seven or eight months due to problems with my old unit. After thinking about it for a minute I packed up the air conditioning unit and had it installed at my apartment within a few hours. With that surge of good fortune I went on to find the girl of my dreams, a much higher paying job, and an affordable new car all within six months! I have never been a very superstitious person, but I think that I owe all of my good fortune to finding that abandoned a/c unit on the road so long ago.

Finally some peace

For a few weeks now my partner and I have been walking around like zombies at work due to an extreme lack of sleep.

The main problem at hand is the way that our air conditioning system has been acting.

For reasons that we can’t figure out every night at around two in the morning out air conditioning system will start making very loud sounds that wake us up. This will continue to go on for hours on end, and by the time we need to start getting ready for work we feel as if we just pulled an all nighter. We have hired two separate HVAC repair techs to come over and try to diagnose the source of the problem ith our a/c system, but they both said the exact same thing. It’s not one specific thing that is wrong with the unit, it’s about a dozen different things because the unit is so old. They both gave us the exact same advice and that was to upgrade to a state of the art a/c unit. My partner and I have both been extremely timid to the idea of making the change at first. The reason behind this was due to the fact that we had hoped to go on a dream vacation at the end of the year, and we didn’t want to spend the money we saved on an a/c system. The way it is looking now though we are starting to learn toward swallowing our pride getting the new unit. If we keep getting such poor amounts of sleep each night for the following months, we might not be around to go on vacation in the first place!

I dislike the stink of gas

I can’t sit strong stinks in my house.

While all the people would agree that they don’t care about to stink anything that is odory, I would have to admit that even the slightest odory or unregular stinks bother myself and others to the point of gagging.

My wife picks on myself and others often for being overdramatic about the stinks, and one of the worst stinks is in the Wintertide when both of us first begin using our Heating and A/C units to keep our home warm. Our furnace is an older model, so it isn’t actually efficient at heating the home when the temperature drops below a particular point, however because of this, both of us have discovered the supplemental heating helps lower our bills sizablely, and both of us purchased a lot of space gas furnaces to help keep our home warm at a wonderful price, however rather than getting the oil-filled radiant space gas furnaces that make the home guess warm and humid, both of us decided to get the coil gas furnaces that make the home warm actually quickly. Though they draw more electricity, they still were more efficient than the furnace, and both of us needed a lot of heat. Unfortunately, using those space gas furnaces every Wintertide had a disadvantage. After being stored for so long, spiders begin to make cobwebs on the coils of the space heater. On top of that, dust and dirt also fall into the space heater. When you first turn the gas furnace on, all you can stink for minutes is the dust and cobwebs burning to a crisp, and it stinks terrible. I instantly beginning gagging and have to leave my home. I wish both of us could just purchase a current furnace instead.

My experiences were great

In the last room of the escape room, you find yourself in a heated engine room trying to find the key to leave

I don’t guess if you have ever been to an escape room for a date night or with a group of friends, however if you haven’t you particularly should try it at least once. I was skeptical of these escape rooms at first because I am not undoubtedly interested in puzzles, so I didn’t guess I would prefer it, then yesterday, I went to our first escape room, in addition to it was a blast. What was undoubtedly cool was that they used their Heating in addition to Air Conditioning units to make the experience more realistic. The storyline took you through the story of a guy trying to escape off of a submarine within a particular time limit. You start out in your new home with the air conditioning system keeping you comfortable. Since your new home is nicer than the rest, the air conditioning system is keeping you undoubtedly comfortable. As the submarine begins taking on water, they begin turning on humidifiers to make the air guess more humid. As time starts passing, you will notice that the settings on the dehumidifier begin to increase to demonstrate the increase of water. In the last room of the escape room, you find yourself in a heated engine room trying to find the key to leave. They used a powerful ductless mini-chop air conditioning system, which has a heating setting, to make the room guess muggy in addition to toasty. The constant decreasing of weather conditions makes it guess not only more realistic however also increases the stress as your body tries to adjust. I’m not sure if every escape room uses their Heating in addition to Air Conditioning unit like this, however they should.
