When I first moved into my house, I did not realize that there was a petting zoo next door to it. When I found out, I thought it was adorable. There were goats, sheep, pigs, and even a few little donkeys. When I first saw them, I loved the donkeys. I had never been around one up close, so I thought they were cute. Now, I can’t stand the noises they make. It never fails that each morning I will be awaken by the sound of a braying donkey. The only thing that blocks the sound of the animals even a little bit is my HVAC system. Because this is the case, I keep my air conditioner running when it’s hot and my heater stays on when it’s cold. I am able to sleep through the entire night because the HVAC system downs out the sound of the petting zoo next door. I do a lot of my work from home, but it is impossible for me to open windows when the animals are making their noises. The smells that come from the zoo are pretty terrible too. If I were to open my windows, I would be overcome by the bad odors that the animals emit. Another downfall is that I am not able to hang clothes on a line, or they would smell awful. To make sure my climate stays controlled and that I have good air quality, I keep my HVAC unit it good shape. I don’t know what I would do without my heating and cooling system. If not for it, I would never sleep and my house would smell like a zoo!
