When I can fix something with minimum trouble and cost, I’m a very happy man.
- However, those scenarios are far more rare than they once were.
These days, repairs are much harder to do yourself and cost a fortune for professionals to fix. This is just part of the deal with life these days. But, I was able to find an easy fix to the HVAC problem we’d had since we moved into this house. And it all came about due to a visit from an old friend. A buddy of mine was coming through town on business. Instead of staying in a hotel, I invited him to stay with us. This gave me a great excuse to hang out with a dear friend who I just don’t see enough of. In our house, when we have a guest, one of the family has to give up their room to sleep in the guest room. Sound pretty counter intuitive huh? Guest rooms are for guests. It says so right in the name. But our guest room is cold. It just doesn’t get the same HVAC heating and cooling that the rest of the house does. When my buddy realized what was going on, he was the one to show me the easy fix to this situation. The answer was room to room ventilators. These are small fans that go inside an adjoining wall to push or pull HVAC treated air to places where it needs more or less. And it wasn’t expensive. Plus, my son and I were able to put the room to room ventilators in ourselves.
