Valentine’s Day: Pagan Revelry, Clandestine Marriage, and 14th Century Poetry

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

What do you think of when you think of Valentine’s Day? Perhaps rushing off to the stationary store after work to choose the perfect card with which to express your feelings towards a loved one? Dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant? Roses, dark chocolates, and other gifts and confections? Whatever Valentine’s Day may look like to you, chances are that it is a far cry from the history surrounding this holiday – or at least we hope so. Here are a few interesting facts about this most romantic of holidays, from your friends here at Roznovak’s Services.

The fact of the matter is that there is no definitive history as to how Valentine’s Day came to be. There are a few different saints with variations of the name Valentine, for example. One of the most prevalent legends, and one certainly in keeping with the romantic nature of the holiday as we know it today, pertains to a priest serving during the 3rd century in Rome. Under the rule of Emperor Claudius II, who believed that young men made for better soldiers if unfettered by marriage, it was illegal for young men to marry. A true believer in love, Valentine would marry young couples in secret. Until, at least, he was found out, and met a very unpleasant end for his crimes.

Like many of our modern holidays, Valentine’s Day can also be traced back to pagan ritual. Lupercalia, as the pagan festival is known, was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, a god of agriculture. As is often the case with Roman celebrations, the details of this celebration are unfit to detail here. Suffice to say that, while there is certainly a touch of the amorous in the proceedings, the festival was a far cry from what we associate with Valentine’s Day today.

How, then, did our modern version of Valentine’s Day come to be? The answer may lie in, of all places, 14th century poetry; particularly, in the writings of Geoffrey Chaucer. Famed for his Canterbury Tales, Chaucer may well be the very first writer to associate Valentine’s Day with romantic love, in the manner of which we are familiar with it today. His The Parliament of Fowls details the dream-vision of a narrator consumed with the idea of romantic love and the natural order of finding a mate. Valentine’s Day is mentioned by name a number of times, as the narrator witnesses a parliament of eagles vying for the hand – or, perhaps more aptly, the wing – of a mate.

Whatever you may think of the holiday’s sordid and convoluted history, we here at Roznovak’s Services hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with the special someone in your life.

Why Is Good Insulation An Important Part of Heating?

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Have you ever had this happen to you? It’s freezing outside, and your heater has been on for hours. Everything is running smoothly, and your home is a nice and comfortable temperature. As soon as you enter another room, however, the temperature drops by about twenty degrees. What in the world just happened? You’re likely the victim of poor heating insulation. Let’s take a look at how important good insulation is to heating.

What is it?

Insulation is a material that is installed into the walls, sub-floor, and ceilings of your home to protect it from temperature changes outside. It can be composed of all sorts of materials, from blankets to loose-fill particles. Good insulation can also help to muffle sounds between rooms and even between houses.

Why is it Important?

Insulation is designed to seal the house off from the climate outside. Without insulation, changes in air pressure would result in the house being more or less the same temperature as the surrounding air. If you attempt to heat or cool a home without any sort of insulation present, the house will simply re-equalize shortly after the heating or air conditioning is turned off. This is why good insulation is such an important part of heating. You can have the best heating system in the world, but without insulation the house can still be freezing as all the heat is leeched out of it.

With good insulation, however, even a modest heater can conceivably keep a home well-heated and comfortable. The insulation keeps the heat inside the home, instead of allowing it to pass through the walls and ceiling. This is also why it is a good idea to keep your insulation in good condition. Though insulation is protected from the elements by the walls of the house, it does decompose over time. Certain animals and insects can also consume or otherwise damage your insulation, leading to holes where heat can escape your home.

If you think you may have a problem with your insulation, call Roznovak. We provide residential heating services throughout Austin, TX.

Why Professional Air Conditioning Services are Necessary

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

If you own a whole-house HVAC system, it’s important that your air conditioning services be taken care of by a trained professional. There’s simply no way around it. If you want your air conditioner to be installed correctly, to be repaired properly and to be maintained carefully, then make sure you opt for a skilled and certified technician. If you attempt to take care of the equipment installation or repair yourself, then you risk the integrity of your system, and if you risk hiring an amateur, then you may be wasting your hard-earned dollar.

Here’s Why Professional Air Conditioning Services Are Necessary

  • Money. If you’re like most folks, you work hard for your money. No matter what line of business you’re in, it’s important that you spend it wisely. One of the primary reasons for hiring a professional to take care of your air conditioner is that it’s worth every penny. Whether you need an immediate repair of your air conditioner to ensure that your cooling resumes as soon as possible or you’re investing in a new air conditioner, hiring a skilled contractor is money well spent. It ensures that the service will be done properly so that you don’t have to worry about paying twice for the same job.
  • Time. We’re fairly sure that you don’t like to waste time. Hiring a pro to take care of your air conditioning service is important because it can actually save you time. You don’t have to worry about taking the time out of your busy schedule to attempt a repair that you’re uncertain of, and you can also make certain that the job is completed in an efficient manner.
  • A job well done. When you hire a contractor to complete a project, you want to make certain that it’s completed. That means that there is no second visit and there is no aspect of the job that is left incomplete. Make sure you hire a pro.

For comprehensive air conditioning services in the greater Austin, TX area, you can count on the professional technicians at Roznovak’s Services.
