While out driving the other day I was really 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 wife that I would care about to have that many lights on our home, but, she reminds me that they really pay for the locale to be decorated and we can’t afford that, then so, I drive around and admire almost everyone else’s. That night was really warm so I decided to park the motorcar and take a walk around the block. I wandered along, looking up at all the lights, when all of a sudden something caught our eye. There was a large fan spinning in the basement window of 1 of the homes. Now, when I say it was really warm, I mean for our area which was around forty degrees. The people I was with and I normally have temperatures in the twenties so it was wharmby 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 frigid air into their beach house during the winter? As luck would have it the homeowner was just pulling up and our curiosity got the better of me. They were entirely kind when I asked about the different sitement and explained that the duct labor in the basement had a sizable hole in it and poured heat into the space. She said separate from the fan going it was care about a sauna. Again, why not just repair the hole? My wife is quite handy so I gave to have him look at it to provide a temporary repair until she could get an HVAC repair woman out to look at it. There was no sense wasting energy and cash heating the basement care about that and then running a fan to cool it off.
