"That is very true and the first step to troubleshooting the problem.  It is amazing how much a dirty filter can impact how your system runs.  And yes you can always put on a sweater.  I tell my wife that all the time."

Native Son replied to Douglas Aldrich's discussion HVAC Question
"Instead of worrying about which way the vents face, I'd worry first about the HVAC system's filter, and then the amount of dust & crud accumulated on the vents.  Amazing  sometimes how much spending $5.00-$15.00 bucks a month…"

Bob Emery replied to Douglas Aldrich's discussion HVAC Question
"That would be correct.  The vent is supposed to face the area with the greatest load such as a window, door or stove.  By moving air across the window or door it mixes the cold or warm air (depending on the season) with the room…"

Brian N replied to Douglas Aldrich's discussion HVAC Question
"In the wintertime you want the air blowing to the coldest area which are windows doors and outside walls to blanket those areas with warm air. Those are the biggest heat loss. Same in summertime when a/c is on. Largest source of heat loss is windows…"

HVAC Question

I'm living with two buddies currently renting a house from a landlord. Being three post college 20 year olds, we don't have a lot of money, and one of the bills is for utilities and such. I happened to look up at the ceiling vents the other day and noticed that every single one of them is facing out. One is located directly in front of an outside door, the other a window, and the third in front of the microwave. To me, in order to save money, they should all be facing in. One of the vents is…See More

If you fail to prepare, you're preparing to fail.

“If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.”

“If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.”

If you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.

 

Living each day, in all aspects of life, is in a sense like preparing for tomorrow. Everything you do today will somehow either make or break the day you have tomorrow. And tomorrow, well that is nothing more than a test to see just how well you prepared. Have a test? How well did…

A Man Should Be Tired!

Posted on February 26, 2012 at 11:29pm 0 Comments

Men, we've seen on the blog before that there are numerous responsibilities that a man has to cover in life today. And there are times when it seems like there are too many. Quite honestly, it should feel like that! Think about it, it is our duty to be a loving son, boyfriend/husband, possible father, employee, citizen, and friend to others.

Now, looking at this from a mathematical standpoint, that's only 6 things. But, we men have known for a while that when reflecting on…

The End of the Patriots Dynasty

So the Patriots lost last night... in case you needed to hear it once again.

Yes, that's right sports fans, now for the next two weeks, we have to listen to those unbearable New York fans, in addition to the bandwagon hoppers to 'supported the team through it all' while they gloat about how the G-Men crushed the opposition and the Patriots chance for revenge from four years earlier. Great...

Now, to my credit, I'm a northerner from CT, so I'm stuck right in the…

On Confidence in Yourself and The American Dream

Posted on October 24, 2011 at 7:18am 1 Comment

We all remember sitting in our history classes when we were young, probably in a circle inside the classroom for a group discussion, and talking about what the American Dream really was. Nobody volunteered to speak, of course, because that would be geekish, and nobody wants to be a geek. But looking back on it all now, have we as individuals lost sight of it all?



Each and every one of us has a different Dream. It deals with careers, spouses, houses, cars, pets, kids, toys, money,…
