Plus 1 (temporarily)…

heating-cooling-icon

It is time to get moving on getting HVAC in our new home.  We have been living here for 8 months now and knew that we want/need HVAC… We have baseboard heaters throughout the house and we have a boiler and a VERY undersized AC unit.  It has been extraordinarily hot and humid this summer.  Apparently, our AC unit is so undersized and trying it’s hardest to keep up with the heat in the house.  One second the AC was blowing away; the next second it just COMPLETELY stopped working.  I called my husband in a panic!  It is bad enough to not have AC but to not have AC when we have a young toddler that overheats really easily.  We needed to get it fixed ASAP!

When buying the house, we paid a little extra and got the home warranty.  My husband had to call the home warranty people to get a service guy out here.  It took 5 hours from the time I originally stopped feeling the AC until the AC was blowing through the house again.  Of course it was one of the hottest days of the week! A wire got jostled loose from the AC blower in our unfinished room/attic access room…

We do not want that happening again… it is time to have my husband’s brother-in-law come spend several weekends with us and get HVAC done in the house!  It is going to be an interesting project for our son to watch his uncle working to help make our house better.  I am sure my son and his uncle are going to enjoy the extra time together.  However, I will be happy for it to be done so that we can get rid of the really noisy boiler in the basement and have 2 separate HVAC units (one for each floor of the house) the correct size working to help keep our house cool in the summer and warm in the winter!
