Zone control really helped us out

      Since the state offered us the funding last year to upgrade the Heating, Ventilation & A/C idea at the rescue I volunteer at, things are much better; This old building runs solely off of fundraisers plus is manned primarily by volunteers. The neighborhood can only pay for one woman to work here full time. This is a registered animal dentist who keeps every one of our animals  as healthy as can be. We were amazed when we were finally awarded the currency for the heating plus cooling idea upgrades–we really didn’t think it would happen for years, if ever!

                 With the modern Heating, Ventilation & A/C idea upgrades, we have been able to make this locale recognize feel like a whole modern building. The modern idea includes many Heating, Ventilation and A/C zone controls, rather than one for the entire building. This allows us to moderate the thermostat in different areas for different animals. We can keep the area where we have puppies plus nursing mothers warmer to suit the little ones. The wing for full grown pets is just a bit cooler, so they don’t get too hot. The cats have their own thermostat too! Last though not least, we now have an media air cleaner plus a humidistat built right into the system.

               The air purification idea keeps the air aroma fresh plus keeps scents from travelling. This also improves the health of our pets, thanks to the UV light which destroys bacteria in the air. Finally the humidifier helps the air stay just right by changing moisture levels as needed.

Good air quality with sealed windows

 

             When my partner and I bought our dream house, we knew it would be a labor of love. We even negotiated for a bit of a lower price, because we could identify at least one major problem right from the get go–the windows. We toured the house in the very early spring, and felt a chill as soon as we walked in. Through the gas boiler was running, the place still felt far cooler than it should, especially since the thermostat was set to 62 for our house tour with our real estate agent.

               This is because the house was very drafty from the windows. This house is a Colonial type from the revival period of the 1920s. While its not as old as others we’ve seen, this place still had the original wooden windows with rope and weights to lower and raise. We thought they were gorgeous though; the screens are metal and really durable. Plus, it even had the storm windows, still in great shape. Instead of talking to a company who works only in modern home updates, we spoke to a local guy who does vintage home restoration. He advised that instead of just getting new windows put in for a small fortune (since Colonial homes have a LOT of windows) that we could instead have the windows resealed. This process allows the windows to be more air tight and take some work off our gas boiler, while maintaining the original charm.

             The process was so affordable, that we figured even if it wasn’t perfect, it would do for now. That day was five years ago; our windows are not only gorgeous, but they’re air tight too!

Hate the climate control on trains

 

                   I really like being able to travel on a budget. I’m not a woman from money nor do I make loads of  it myself. Where I live, the cost of living is getting higher & higher every year, making it undoubtedly hard to travel. Whenever, I can, I try to do so inexpensively. The less cash I spend on each trip means the more trips I can take every year! It’s not easy and frequently requires quite a bit of sacrifice. In the end I suppose it’s worth it, and one of the ways I do so is travelling by train when I can.

                Sure, the trip is longer, but they also have outlets to charge my PC. I treat my travelling time as an extra work day, so I can still get things done even while I’m getting from point A to point B. The only issue is that the train is not always comfortable. It always starts off nice & cool, because I usually start my travel in the afternoon. The Heating, Ventilation, & A/C is always set to the best temperature first thing in the afternoon! However, the more people get onto the train, the worse it gets. Once we leave NY, the control device just does not keep up with the number of people on the train, and there is never a temperature control visible.

                  If you ask a conductor about it while they come through to check tickets after a layover, they’ll just shrug & tell you the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C is beyond their purview.  All you can do is dress in layers & adjust accordingly when the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C fails to keep you comfortable.

I am making good choices

Life in a basement home is pretty great, most of the time. Living below ground means that my locale stays cooler in the summertime, & warmer in the summertime! Plus basement apartments aren’t the most sought after sites to live, so I spend my money a lot less in rent than I would living in a lot of other sites; Combine that with the currency I save from not running my Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system as much to be comfortable & not having an A/C system at all, & the savings is quite a bit. However, living in a basement component does have its drawbacks. For one, you get genuinely little natural sunlight, so I often have to remember to drag myself outside get some fresh air. For another, it is not constantly as comfortable as I would love it to be. My entryway is the largest problem. While the rest of the basement has access to the slider door, so the air quality is a bit better here, the air flow doesn’t quite get all the way back to my entryway. In consequence, the air in my entryway feels genuinely heavy & cold. My bedsheets often recognize damp, but I easily put them in the drier for more than long enough. However, this was easy to solve with a small dehumidifier. The dehumidified removes the excess moisture in the air, which is the real cause behind summertime discomfort. Within just a afternoon of using the dehumidifier, my bedsheets felt clean & crisp, & the entryway itself felt a lot warmer. The dehumidifier is small enough that it’s quiet too, so I can run it all the time & not be disturbed by it.

I was worried about that

Life in a basement home is pretty great, most of the time. Living below ground means that my locale stays cooler in the summer, plus warmer in the summer, then plus basement apartments aren’t the most sought after locales to live, so I pay a lot less in rent than I would residing in a lot of other locales, however combine that with the money I save from not running my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C plan as much to be comfortable plus not having an AC plan at all, plus the savings is quite a bit. However, residing in a basement device does have its negatives. For a single, you get particularly little natural sunlight, so I often have to remember to drag myself outside get some fresh air. For another, it is not consistently as comfortable as I would appreciate it to be. My kitchen is the  greatest problem. While the rest of the basement has access to the slider door, so the air quality is a bit better here, the air flow doesn’t quite get all the way back to my kitchen. In consequence, the air in my kitchen feels particularly heavy plus cold. My bedsheets often assume damp, however I particularly put them in the drier for more than long enough. However, this was simple to solve with a small dehumidifier. The dehumidified removes the excess moisture in the air, which is the real cause behind Summer discomfort. Within just a day of using the dehumidifier, my bedsheets felt scrub plus crisp, plus the kitchen itself felt a lot warmer. The dehumidifier is small enough that it’s quiet too, so I can run it all the time plus not be disturbed by it.

I saved quite a bit of money that day

Life in a basement lake house is pretty great, most of the time. Living below ground means that our venue stays cooler in the summer, and warmer in the summer, plus basement apartments aren’t the most sought after venues to live, so I pay a lot less in rent than I would living in a lot of other venues… Combine that with the money I save from not running our Heating and A/C method as much to be comfortable and not having an AC method at all, and the savings is quite a bit. However, living in a basement unit does have its disadvantages. For 1, you get undoubtedly little natural sunlight, so I often have to remember to drag myself outside get some fresh air. For another, it is not always as comfortable as I would adore it to be. My bedroom is the  greatest problem. While the rest of the basement has access to the slider door, so the air quality is a bit better here, the air flow doesn’t quite get all the way back to our bedroom. In consequence, the air in our bedroom feels undoubtedly heavy and cold. My bedsheets often assume damp, although I really put them in the drier for more than long enough. However, this was straightforward to solve with a small dehumidifier. The dehumidified removes the excess moisture in the air, which is the real cause behind summertime discomfort. Within just a day of using the dehumidifier, our bed sheets felt clean and crisp, and the bedroom itself felt a lot warmer. The dehumidifier is small enough that it’s quiet too, so I can run it all the time and not be disturbed by it.

AC system 

I am quite worried

Life in a basement apartment is pretty great, most of the time. Living below ground means that my place stays cooler in the summer, and warmer in the summer. Plus basement apartments aren’t the most sought after places to live, so I pay a lot less in rent than I would living in a lot of other places. Combine that with the money I save from not running my HVAC system as much to be comfortable and not having an AC system at all, and the savings is quite a bit. However, living in a basement unit does have its downsides. For one, you get very little natural sunlight, so I often have to remember to drag myself outside get some fresh air.

AC equipment 

There is a problem here

When I go to sleep, I regularly like to have a floor fan running. This helps block out any outside noise and things like that which would wake myself and others up or stop myself and others from falling asleep. I am a light sleeper and even the slightest pin drop could wake myself and others up…seriously! So, running the floor fan helps stop these concerns. Lately, I have been noticing that while I have that fan on, our dust sensitivities have been acting up. I did not know what was up, however I finally figured out that I had not cleaned that fan in ages, and it was making the room’s air quality certainly bad. So, naturally I cleaned the fan, however also I looked into getting a portable media air cleaner. There are all kinds of media air cleaners available this week. There are the media air cleaners that are installed into your home’s central heating and cooling system, there are the air purification portable systems like what I just purchased. Those can also be known as media whole-house air purifiers so i’ve heard from a few weird sources. There are also the whole-apartment whole-house air purifiers which go above and beyond anything you ever could believe of, and are controlled by the same control component on the wall that controls your home’s central heating and cooling system. I l acquired a lot about whole-house air purifiers as you can tell. This was because of our dirty fan. I suppose at the end of the morning, sometimes bad things can turn into nice things and unexpected education! I’m glad to have l acquired what I did.

I like to live here
