My fingers were numb from the cold, and I would have used a cup of steaming coffee before my first home service of the day.
I was on my way to a duct cleaning.
Not many people contact the heating corp for that service compared to a furnace/heater tune-up or cleaning a washable filter. Most homeowners forget about the ductwork needed until there is a problem in the HVAC duct that needs fixing. As an HVAC repairman working for a local heating provider, I loved it when a.home owner asked for energy-saving help tips because there is so much that homeowners can do to reduce the amount of energy consumed during whole-home heating. I have a gas furnace that I installed. Installing an intelligent temperature regulator was my first step to saving energy. Since we have a zoned system, when we turn on the gas fireplace, the thermostat will adjust the temperature settings so that the boiler installation runs less to heat the living room since there is already another heat source. When we are out of the house, the thermostat automatically adjusts the temperature settings to a much lower temperature, saving energy. There was only a slight increase in the energy bill when my partner started working from home. The house I went to that morning belonged to an elderly couple. After finishing the job, they insisted that I stay for their late breakfast, but I politely declined because it was not very professional. She, however, gave me two cinnamon rolls to go. I picked up a coffee on my way back to the office, and I had my first meal of the day.
