I love gadgets.
I think I have always been this way as far back as I can remember.
It must have had a great deal to do with my dad because he was always tinkering with stuff. And all that tinkering lead dad to possess a bunch of gadget type tools. He would even go after something like an HVAC unit with some of his gadgets. I can remember him doing this while my mother picked up the phone and called the HVAC professionals. My dad was unafraid to take stuff apart but, he couldn’t always put it back together. This gadget habit he passed down to me just came in very, very handy. I bought a temperature gun years ago for something that I can’t even recall. Well, we moved about a year ago to a place that is much colder in the winter. We got here in the middle of winter and just dealt with the HVAC being on all the time because we didn’t know better. Not this year, I know there is no good reason for the HVAC to run as much as it did. The HVAC is pretty new and has been checked out by the HVAC people. The problem was the house. But, I actually had the tool that could help me correct that situation. The temp gun and I started creeping around the house in the evening once the HVAC had come on to heat the house at night. I was floored by what a sieve my home was. The HVAC treated air was just pouring out of my house. Needless to say, I have a bunch of sealing up to do.
