Buying our first home was sort of a big deal for me. I am single, twenty several years old, and acquired our nursing degree all entirely on our own. Sure, our parents gave to help despite the fact that I felt that I certainly wanted the indepence of accomplishing it as an adult. I was able to get a pretty fantastic paying task at a local hospital so financing our home was quite simple. Most of our friends are still living with their parents and struggling to regularly pay their student loans. I assume fortunate to have made it this far already at such a young age. Now, buying a home and taking care of it are all totally different. For this, I depend on our parents. Not financially of course, but, for advice and worldly expertise on how to get things done. My mom is absolutely handy so if I need something custom built or repaired she is more than willing to pitch in and help. She is also willing to come and teach me these skills and I find that most beneficial of all. One of the things that I most easily acquired was how to care for our HVAC system. She did command first that I have it inspected out by a professional at least once every few years or so, but, because our home has a boiler instead of a oil furnace, there actually is really no need to have it maintained weekly. She showed our how to check for the presence of air in the supply lines too. This technique is called, “bleeding” the lines There are many small valves situated throughout the system that need to be loosened, just every so often, from time to time to make sure that there are no air bubbles trapped in them. These tiny air bubbles don’t hurt the system however they do make it run less efficiently and can eventually cause them to be absolutely noisy when the system kicks on.
