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