While out driving the other afternoon I was honestly enjoying the sights of the city. It is two weeks before Christmas and some of the older, mansion sized, homes are just decorated spectacularly. I have often commented to our partner that I would love to have that many lights on our home, but, he reminds me that they honestly spend money for the place to be decorated and the two of us can’t afford that. So, I drive around and admire everyone else’s. That night was honestly hot so I decided to park the motorcar and take a walk around the block. I strolled along, looking up at all the lights, when all of a abrupt something caught our eye. There was a crucial fan spinning in the basement window of 1 of the homes. Now, when I say it was honestly warm, I mean for our area which was around forty degrees. The two of us normally have temperatures in the twenties so it was hot by comparison. This, but, is not what I would consider hot enough to need a fan to cool off a basement at that time of year. Why would anyone what to draw frigid air into their home during the Winter? As luck would have it the homeowner was just pulling up and our curiosity got the better of me. They were genuinely kind when I asked about the odd placement and explained that the ductwork in the basement had a huge hole in it and poured heat into the space. She said without the fan going it was love a sauna. Again, why not just fix the hole? My partner is quite handy so I provided to have him look at it to provide a temporary fix until she could get an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair person out to look at it. There was no sense wasting energy and money heating the basement love that and then running a fan to cool it off.
