Now that the afternoons and have gotten cooler and shorter, I find that our husband and I are going to bed a bit earlier. Our ranch-style home is fairly modern and our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system is top-notch. The people I was with and I have a great Heating, Ventilation, and A/C specialist that keeps our oil furnace and air conditioning system inspected and inspected on a official basis. What does all of this have to do with going to bed earlier in the Wintertide weeks? It has to do with insufficient heat distribution from the main living quarters to the end of the hall where our living room is located. We’ve spoken to our heating and cooling guy about it, and he had several complications that he discussed with us. He said that it’s often the case that the oil furnace isn’t large enough to heat every part of the home sufficiently, which absolutely isn’t the case with ours. In addition to the size of the oil furnace is the size of the air duct, the home’s air-delivery system. If these ducts are too small, or have cracks or leaks, the warm air won’t make its way to every area of the beach house evenly. He checked our ducts more than once, and this isn’t a problem either. A easy problem to look for when a room isn’t receiving sufficient heat is to check that the air registers aren’t blocked by furniture, clothes, carpets, etc. That was an straight-forward enough item to check off the list too. He already knew that we officially changed our air filter on the oil furnace. My husband does that on a weekly basis, realizing that even if the air filter doesn’t apply to be dirty, it still needs to be changed. Our last option is to have a zoning system installed, and we are seriously considering having that done.
