technician-wiringWhat did you want to be when you were young? A rock star? An astronaut? A professional baseball player? We all had these long-shot dreams at some point,  but the fact of the matter is that the longshot would not be a long-shot if everyone succeeded in those pursuits. Plus, where would we be as a society if every one of us was a famous actor or athlete? Well, we’d all be a lot less comfortable in our homes, probably!

Okay, that’s fine. Your system is tuned up and ready to go. Of course, you also want to ensure that you are using your system efficiently while you live comfortably, so you double check to make sure that all of your windows are closed. This is the problem.
