When my folks bought this remote, rural piece of land, they had no idea what they were getting into.
They wanted to resettle and reset their lives, far away from the big city, so they bought four hundred acres with a ranch house dead in the middle of it.
After living with millions of other people, now my folks were three miles from their nearest neighbor! I came out to visit them soon after ,and took a whole week off from my job so that I could help my parents check out the ductwork and the HVAC systems for the house. That is my job, my specialty, and I knew I could save them several thousand dollars by doing the HVAC work for them. I checked all of the air ducts for blockages, and thankfully there were none. While I was inspecting the ductwork, I also gave it a full cleaning, from the inside out, so my folks would have a clean slate and a dust-free system. I tested out every aspect of their climate control system, including finding a couple of “hot spots” in the house. This isn’t an internet term in this case, a “hot spot” is just what it sounds like — an area that doesn’t have ample coverage from the HVAC system. There were two rooms that were warmer than the rest of the house, so I told my folks where they were. Since they didn’t have zone control for the heating and cooling HVAC system, having a couple of active hot spots would be almost as good.
