I received an unexpected, surprise bonus at work last week.
My boss told me that he had been silently monitoring my performance and was continually satisfied with the results.
I just try to work as hard as I would on my own time doing things for myself, let alone for someone paying me for labor. As far as the money is concerned, it’s not a fortune, but it’s more than enough to get some much needed work done on my house at last. I need a few repairs on my roof before it gets any colder out and closer to snowfall; plus, I would also like to put a new coat of paint on the exterior before the winter weather nears. But the most costly repair I’ve been putting off is replacing my central HVAC system. I have a split system where I have inside my house the air handler that contains my air conditioner and furnace, and outside I have my condenser unit. These two components swap coolant back and forth through the refrigeration process. This is a common system for most homes. However, I have been reading about package systems as an alternative. Everything listed above is contained within a single metal enclosure, typically on a rooftop or on the outside of an exterior wall. They’re more efficient because there’s no energy waste from transporting cold coolant from the air handler out to the condenser and back in again. Plus, they’re easier for HVAC technicians to service because everything is in a single place and accessible from the outdoors. Many of them are stronger too, often able to cool houses much faster and more efficiently than a comparatively priced split system. I have decided to make the upgrade after mulling over my options and comparing various manufacturers.
