Last holiday my son made a comment about how crazy it would be if one could not have access to the internet and when I told him that back when I was growing up there was no such thing as the internet he said that they must have been some dark times.
In comparison to the way the world is now, they can be termed as dark days.
That conversation gave me an idea about where we would be spending our holiday vacation. My family and a friend’s family set out to this home that was situated in a somewhat deserted place and the best part was that it was off the grid. We would have no internet, no electricity and there was no phone reception in the house. My husband was a bit concerned about the HVAC installation in the house, but I assured him that the house had a zone control system for temperature control and it was powered by gas. He also asked if they had air quality systems in place such as an air purifier. The house had an air purification system to maintain high air quality but the place was surrounded by miles of trees and vegetation. There was also a wood-burning fireplace in the house. There was a contact list for emergencies and among them an HVAC provider, but I doubted we would need the services of an HVAC professional while we were there. It reminded me that I had to call our local homeowner solutions business and postpone the air duct cleaning that I had scheduled. When I was planning for the vacation I had completely forgotten about having scheduled an appointment with an HVAC tech for duct cleaning and HVAC duct insulation.
