This May I went to my brother’s lake house prepared to start washing out the attic eaves before my brother had a chance to start tossing things away. My brother had been warning me that I had to clean out the attic. My brother was going to do a complete cleaning and trash anything that I did not want. Typically, I wait until the last minute. I got there early though and headed into the attic ready to hunt things down. I was happy that my brother hadn’t started trashing anything yet. I was even more thankful that my brother and his wife decided to go away for the weekend! I got to spend a few moments in the attic, all to just me. The only issue with this project was that the attic did not have any kind of cooling. I was without any kind of cooling, in the hottest room of the house. What is worse is that the ductwork was in the attic as well. I could literally see the HVAC ducts and believe that no cooling was coming out of them. It was tempting to just wreck the air ducts. However, I wasn’t about to put my brother and his wife out of central air in the middle of May! Tired, gross and semi sweaty, I had to take a break and go down to the rest of the house. The whole lake house air conditioner was working great. I loved having cooling relief and also having temperature control to just myself.
