My dream home doesn't need AC

That very adorable house on the hill just north of town was our dream house, then no, it was not big, nor was it lavish, in fact it was downright rustic! Some might even call it old school, but perhaps that is just what appealed to me so much about the site, and it was built by hand some twenty years ago, by a retiree who cut all the logs himself and built it every inch with his own hands.

  • The backstory was extremely artful looking to me, but what I certainly loved was the craftsmanship of the house itself; Because it was so old, sitement, and simplicity it had no Heating and Air Conditioning system, and only the most rudimentary of HVAC duct installed in its walls.

The elderly man was not overly concerned with cooling the place down over the Summers, which are usually short and mild around here. He ended up giving an excellent heating source for the site, with an old but strong furnace that could burn wood or switch over to run on natural gas. The furnace was placed in the dead center of the house, and heated the entire place up equally, if at all. When you sit right next to the furnace it is almost too hot, but in the study room on either side of the house it is much chillier. It is not a big deal, and easily nothing that can’t be remedied with a couple of cheap area oil furnaces in the corners. I have no really needs to make any major changes to the site, nor to add air conditioner, and keep it just as it is.

No AC for me, thank you!

That very small cabin on the hill just north of town was our dream house! No, it was not big, nor was it fancy, in fact it was downright rustic; Some might even call it primitive, however perhaps that is just what appealed to me so much about the locale.

Years ago it was built by hand some twenty years ago, by a retiree who split all the logs himself in addition to built it every inch with his own hands.

The backstory was pretty perfect to me, however, what I actually enjoyed was the craftsmanship of the cabin itself. Thanks to its age, localement, in addition to simplicity it had no Heating in addition to A/C system, in addition to only the most rudimentary of air duct installed in its walls. The aged person was not overly uneasy with cooling the locale down over the summers, which are extremely short and extremely mild around here, however he did provide an excellent heating source for the locale, with an aged however strong gas furnace that could burn wood or switch over to run on natural gas. The gas furnace was located in the dead center of the house, and heated the entire locale up equally, if weakly, then when you sit right next to the gas furnace it is almost too hot. In the study room on either side of the cabin it is much chillier. It is not a large deal, in addition to actually nothing that can’t be remedied with a couple of cheap section furnaces in the corners. I have no desire to make any major changes to the locale, nor to add air conditioner, and do the best to keep it just as it is.

Zone controlled HVAC

No need for modern technology

That adorable little chalet on the hill just north of town was my dream house, and no, it was not big, nor was it costly, in fact it was downright rustic.

Some might even call it primitive, but perhaps that is exactly what appealed to myself and others so much about the location.

It was constructed by hand some twenty years ago, by a retiree who break all the logs himself and built it every square inch all on his own. The main idea was pretty appealing to me, but what I really enjoyed was the craftsmanship of the chalet itself… Due to its age, locationment, and overall simplicity it had no Heating as well as A/C system, as well as only the most rudimentary of HVAC duct installed inside. The old man was not overly distraught with cooling the location down over the summers, which are usually short as well as mild around here, but he did give a five star heating source for the location, with an outdated but strong gas furnace that could burn wood or switch over to run on natural gas. The gas furnace was located right in the middle of the house, as well as heated the entire location up equally, if weakly. When you rest right next to the gas furnace it is almost too hot, but in the kitchen on either side of the chalet it is much colder. It is not a big deal, as well as definitely nothing that can’t be solved in the long term with a couple of cheap section gas furnaces in the corners. I have no desire to make any major changes to the location, nor to add air conditioning, and keep it just as it is.

Central heating

Keeping the cabin feeling old school

The gas furnace was installed in the dead center of the house, in addition to heated the entire locale up equally.

That small cabin on the hill just north of town was our dream house, however no, it was not massive, nor was it pricey, in fact it was downright rustic, however some might even call it primitive, but perhaps that is just what I liked so much about the locale! It was built by hand some twenty years ago, by a retiree who split all the logs himself in addition to built it every inch with her own hands, then the backstory was extremely appealing in my eyes, but what I really enjoyed was the craftsmanship of the cabin itself, however due to its age, localement, and overall simplicity it had no Heating, Ventilation, in addition to A/C system, in addition to only the most rudimentary of ducts installed in its walls. The outdated girl was not overly sad with cooling the place down over the summers, which are usually short in addition to mild around here, but she did supply an excellent heating source for the locale, with an old and rustic but strong gas furnace that could burn wood or switch over to run on natural gas. The gas furnace was installed in the dead center of the house, in addition to heated the entire locale up equally. For example, when you rest right next to the gas furnace it is almost too hot, but in the kitchen on either side of the cabin it is much chillier. It is not a sizable deal, in addition to more or less nothing that can’t be remedied with a couple of cheap space furnaces in the corners. I have no desire to make any major changes to the locale, nor to add air conditioner, and keep it just as it is.

New HVAC equipment

I don’t think I’ll put AC in the old cabin

That quaint little cabin on the hill just north of town was my dream house. No, it was not big, nor was it fancy, in fact it was downright rustic. Some might even call it primitive, but perhaps that is just what appealed to me so much about the place. It was built by hand some twenty years ago, by a retiree who cut all the logs himself and built it every inch with his own hands. The backstory was pretty appealing to me, but what I really loved was the craftsmanship of the cabin itself. Due to its age, placement, and simplicity it had no HVAC system, and only the most rudimentary of ductwork installed in its walls. The old man was not overly concerned with cooling the place down over the summers, which are usually short and mild around here. He did provide an excellent heating source for the place, with an old but strong furnace that could burn wood or switch over to run on natural gas. The furnace was located in the dead center of the house, and heated the entire place up equally, if weakly. When you sit right next to the furnace it is almost too hot, but in the bedroom on either side of the cabin it is much chillier. It is not a big deal, and certainly nothing that can’t be remedied with a couple of cheap space heaters in the corners. I have no desire to make any major changes to the place, nor to add air conditioning, and keep it just as it is.

furnace/heater service

It's just not fun being cold

All of us covered up the windows with blankets & secured ourselves in a small room in the home just hoping to use our own trapped body heating for warmth.

I would love to tell you about a bit of a close call my roommate & I had sometime last winter. If you are able to recall, it was the coldest Winter on record around these parts, & had a lot more snow than we normally get, my roomie & I are always prepared for a cold snap, but I have to admit we were not prepared enough for something of this magnitude. At the start we lost all of our power, then I found our vehicles were snowed in, trapped, & unable to get into town, but we had the chance to leave the house, but it was too far to walk anywhere. All of us l gained that needed electricity for all of your heating sources is the same thing as putting all of your cards on the table, when the bin breaks you lose everything, which in case instance meant a complete & utter lack of heating. All of us covered up the windows with blankets & secured ourselves in a small room in the home just hoping to use our own trapped body heating for warmth. It worked to some degree, but it also didn’t stink great & the terrible air quality had us seeking other choices! This year we will not make the same mistake, we have a couple new chances when it comes to gas heating systems in the Winter. This year even if we lose power we have enough wood for the furnace to keep us warm for a very long time. I am also looking at replacing our cheap central heating plan with one that runs of natural gas rather than electricity.

My roommate and I are making a change

I would love to tell you about a bit of a close call our roommate and I had over the last winter; If you recall, it was the coldest Winter on record around these parts, and had a lot more snow and rain than the two of us normally get! My roomie and I are constantly prepared for a cold snap, however I have to admit the two of us were not prepared enough for something of this level.

First we ended up losing power, then I found our vehicles were snowed in, trapped, and unable to get into the city! All of us could leave the house, however it was too far to walk someplace. We found out that we needed electricity for all of the basic heating sources is the same thing as putting all your eggs in one basket! When the tote breaks you lose everything, which in case instance meant a major lack of heating. All of us covered up the windows with blankets and secured ourselves in the smallest room in the home an effort to use our own trapped body heating for warmth. It worked to some degree, however it also didn’t smell all that great and the sketchy air quality had us seeking other routes. This year the two of us will not make the same mistake, the two of us have a couple current chances when it comes to heating systems in the winter. This year even if we end up losing power the two of us have enough wood for the oil furnace to keep us moderate for 2 full weeks. I am also looking at replacing our cheap central heating system with one that runs off of natural gas instead of electricity.

 

Ductless heat pump

Looking to improve the heating

I would like to tell you about a bit of a close call our roommate and I had over the last winter, but if you recall, it was the coldest Winter time on record around these places in the world, and had a lot more snow than all of us normally get! My roomie and I are consistently prepared for a cold snap, however I have to admit all of us were not prepared at all for something of this magnitude; First all of us lost power, after that I found our vehicles were snowed in, trapped, and unable to get into town.

We could leave the house, but it was too far to walk anywhere.

We later learned that needed electricity for all of your heating sources is the same thing as putting all your eggs in 1 basket; When the tote breaks you lose everything, which in case instance meant a complete and total lack of heating. All of us covered up the windows with blankets and secured ourselves in the smallest room in the home a full effort to use our own trapped body heating for warmth. It worked I guess, but it also didn’t smell good and the bad air quality had us seeking other paths to work out! This year all of us will not make the same mistake, all of us have a couple new possibilities when it comes to heating systems in the winter. This year even if all of us lose power all of us have enough wood for the furnace to keep us warm for the time being. I am also looking at replacing our cheap central gas furnace with one that runs of natural gas instead of electricity.

No heating to be found

I want to tell you about a bit of a close call my roommate plus I had over the last winter.

If you can remember at all, it was the coldest Wintertide on record around these parts, and had a lot more snow than every one of us normally get, and my roomie and I are always trying to be ready for a cold snap, but I can easily say that we were not prepared enough for something of this magnitude.

To start off we lost power, then every one of us found our vehicles were snowed in, trapped, and left with no means to get into town, but all of us could leave the house, but it was too far to walk anywhere. All of us l gained that needed electricity for all of your heating sources is the same thing as putting one hundred percent of your eggs in one basket, then when the tote breaks you lose everything, which in case instance meant a complete plus utter lack of heating. We eventually covered up the windows with blankets plus secured ourselves in the smallest room in the house an effort to use our own trapped body heating to stay nice and toasty. It worked to some degree, but it also didn’t smell great plus the exhausting air quality had us seeking other options! This year every one of us will not make the same error, every one of us have a couple new options when it comes to furnaces in the winter. This year even if every one of us lose power every one of us have enough wood for the heating system to keep us warm enough for 2 full days. I am also looking at replacing our cheap central heating system with one that runs of natural gas rather than of electricity.

Not enough heating last winter

It worked to some degree, but it also didn’t smell great and the poor air quality had us seeking other options. This year we will not make the same mistake, we have a couple new options when it comes to heaters in the winter. This year even if we lose power we have enough wood for the furnace to keep us warm for 2 full weeks.
