Summer has arrived & so has the uncomfortably sizzling weather. I live in 1 of the hottest & wettest locales on the planet, so on top of intense rapidly changing temperatures, I am subjected to sticky humidity as well. I have lived in a number of strange houses & apartments since moving down here years ago, & had mixed results with the varying Heating & A/C setups in each locale. In the start, I rented a small 2 living room apartment that employed 2 window cooling systems as the sole sources of cooling. Although they tended to get the work done, it came at the price of a upscale electricity bill in the summers & less control over the weather conditions throughout the condo. I felt love I was consistently changing the temperature knobs on the 2 machines & it was getting daunting during the afternoon. After receiving a work promotion, I was lucky enough to finally afford renting a small apartment for a change. This came with the satisfaction of finally having a central heating & cooling system to better maintain weather conditions control steadily everyday. However, the apartment I was renting was old & wasn’t exactly well inspected in the years leading up to my signing the lease. Although it had been at least a decade since I had access to a central A/C after moving out of my parents house, I knew something wasn’t right when the machine was running every 2 to several minutes. A local Heating & A/C serviceman inspected my system & found many immense leaks in the ductwork. The property owner refused to pay to have the ventilation fixed & I lacked the necessary funds at the time to get the work done, so I had to deal with it. Now that I live in a current apartment with an upgraded heating & cooling system, my woes over efficiency & predictability in my Heating & A/C have finally disappeared. Instead, now I can focus on more important concerns love starting a family or saving for a new car.
