whats with all the heat questions?


It has been in the low 40's here the past couple of weeks at night, and 60's during the day. Up in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan, they have been seeing fall temps for at least two weeks. within the next month, they should be starting to get their first snowfalls. Same with Colorado, Utah and elsewhere in the upper mountains, it will be getting cold.

It is a cold wave..only got to 90 today...
Soon it will be time for my favorite calls. The commercial buildings that don't have any heat. The looks on the tenants faces is classic. "What do you mean we don't have a heating system?, can't you just go and hit the switch?".
No ma'am/sir, I have to install electric heat strips if you want heat, I tell them. If you want it I will have to order it. And then the all time classic, "don't you carry that on your truck?"

Bubbler, look at all of the stuff you can get done, with no one else in the house. When we were getting our roof re-done, I had the plumber come to cut some roots out of our waste drain line. Other times, I just like having the house to myself, even though I have one job scheduled to get done. That way, I can watch what ever I want to on tv or Netflix, without interruptions.

I am home everyday, until I get released by the doctor to go back to work. Now that I have to go back in surgery next Thursday, that means I have the house to myself during the day until November. It is going to be weird when I go back to work, since I am going to have to discipline myself into actually working, not browsing this site all day long.

They actually do JJBoy, keep it around 70 during Winter time. Summer time, it is around 72-73 at work. My job involves scanning in documents from Micro-film & micro-fiche, along with we keep hundreds of records in paper files. When we were located in a basement, the whole floor flooded, and they had to recover paper documents along with cleaning the micro data. The whole building is kept around 72 during the day time, and 76 when we are away, during Summer. Winter, away is 64, Work day is around 70.

It is like that in most of our offices for our agency.

That's exactly what I was telling the wife and kids last week. And lo and behold, it's back up into the 40's and 50's again at night this week. Growing up, my folks had a rule: heats not on til nov 1st or until the inside temp is hitting 58 at night.

Raylo -

That photo reminds me to put the Jimmy in 4WD to move things around and check it out before the weather gets really serious. I only had it in 4WD once in the last 3 or 4 years, despite about 90+ inches last season but it was sissy snow.

Thanks for the reminder of the possible.

Dick

Yes, looking at pics like that makes me shiver... and is good incentive to get my furnace upgrade done soon. Also a good idea to exercise the 4WD. My Toyota Tacoma manual says to do it monthly but I am probably not that religious about it. Before the Tacoma I had a Chevy S-10 and the 4WD always worked fine when I needed it.

blah...What a horrible pic. Forty nine winters and I still dread it. Long johns from mid Oct. to mid April. Last week when everybody was freezing, I saw on the news that the crazy jet stream had brought 28-32c (88-90f) way up north around the Alberta/NWTerritories border. Currently, here it is 20c (70f). Temps between 40-60 are very refreshing, the air is crisp and clean, and the fall colours are stunning, but it is always kind of sad knowing whats around the corner.
My new furnace is coming on Monday
