While out driving the other afternoon I was honestly enjoying the sights of the city. It is 2 weeks before Christmas and some of the older, mansion sized, homes are just decorated spectacularly. I have often commented to our hubby that I would love to have that many lights on our home, but, he reminds me that they absolutely spend our money for the site to be decorated and the people I was with and I can’t afford that! So, I drive around and admire most people else’s. That night was honestly warm so I decided to park the vehicle and take a walk around the block. I strolled along, looking up at all the lights, when all of a hasty something caught our eye. There was a massive fan spinning in the basement window of one of the homes. Now, when I say it was honestly warm, I mean for our space which was around forty degrees. Every one of us normally have temperatures in the twenties so it was warm by comparison. This, but, is not what I would consider warm enough to need a fan to cool off a basement at that time of year. Why would anyone what to draw cold air into their lake apartment while in 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 unusual sitement and explained that the ductwork in the basement had a big hole in it and poured heat into the space. She said without the fan going it was appreciate a sauna. Again, why not just repair the hole? My hubby is quite handy so I provided to have him look at it to provide a temporary repair until he could get an Heating, Ventilation & A/C service man out to look at it. There was no sense wasting energy and money heating the basement appreciate that and then running a fan to cool it off.
