Don’t buy anything unless there is a service agreement

If you’re thinking of getting a new HVAC system you should be really excited.

There is nothing better than the feeling of a great AC unit blasting on you.

I just got my HVAC system upgraded and I couldn’t be happier. The only thing I would recommend is that you make sure you talk to your HVAC technician about a service agreement. The last time I got an HVAC system I had no idea what a service agreement was, and I didn’t even know that you had to maintain an AC unit so much. I was under the impression that you only called an HVAC technician if something is wrong but that is not the case. The best way to take care of an HVAC system is to get regular check ups on your system. By checking the HVAC system on a regular basis you can ensure that you will have the best working piece of equipment. Another thing that’s good to check up on is your thermostat. People often forget how important it is to have a good thermostat. In my house we installed a smart thermostat that can tell use when we might need to get maintenance done. It takes all of the guesswork out and we have saved a lot on our HVAC costs. There are so many HVAC businesses out there that will explain everything there is to know about service contracts so don’t be afraid to ask. The best thing to do is call ahead of time and see how you feel about the HVAC technician before you have them come to your house.

I did start to think that was funny

Looking back to my college years a long time ago, its so funny think about all of the things that I would do just to make some money on the side! Even though I was a full time student who took his classes very seriously, I was always on the hunt for new job opportunities part time.

One of the first jobs that I was able to get while in college was the worst job I ever had.

It was a labor intensive job working in a warehouse early in the morning. Not only was is it super chilly in the section of the country that I live in, but was also extremely cold in the warehouse that I worked. Even though the warehouse itself was large enough to have a football field put inside of it there was only one or two old and run down heating units inside. When my friend from work and I had enough and tried to go to our manager about the problem with the lack of heating, he told us to “man up” and wear some extra warm clothing if it was that bad. I even tried to take matters into my own hand at one point when I brought my mini portable heating units with me to work one morning in hopes to stay at least a little more warm. The moment that my boss saw that I had the heating unit with me however, he yelled at me to go put it in my locker immediately. I quit this job shortly after this when I realized that any job that can’t afford to get heating to its employees isn’t worthy of my time. Now when I apply to new jobs as an adult, I make sure they confirm they have proper heating and cooling during the interview.

Helping with emergency efforts always feels good

Working in the HVAC profession for so long, I have been exposed to tons of different stressful scenarios.

I have installed air conditioning units while having two huge dogs growling at me the entire time, and I have also repaired the air ducts in broken heating and cooling units for two continuous hours on the warmest of summer days.

Even with all of these tests that I have faced as my time as a certified HVAC repairman, what I had to help out with last year was the most difficult. Five hours away from the city that I live in, a massive storm had swept through town and it had caused tons of electrical damage. Due to my very impressive resume working as an HVAC repair tech, I was hand selected to travel down to the town and help get it back in order. Once I arrived there, I began to realize how run down the place was. Most of the heating and cooling units I was tasked to fix with were nearly destroyed, and it felt like no matter how many houses I went to or air filters I changed out there was always another house that needed help. After all was said and done, I had spent two straight months in that town working twelve hour days, six days a week solely focused on fixing down broken heating and cooling units in all the homes that needed it. Every day was stressful beyond belief, but the joy and pure happiness that I feel now looking back and knowing that I helped so many people in getting their lives back to normal at least one tiny fraction. The idea of being an old and experienced hVAC repair tech might not be a glamorous profession, but i wouldn’t change it nor my experiences for the world.

Taking my mother out to the doctor

I never would have never expected our mother’s health to plummet appreciate it did right after I graduated college.

She lived our early teen years mostly in a bed, suffering from dire Crohn’s Disease. But thankfully, current treatments steadily improved her health in the ensuing years. It wasn’t enough to put her into remission, but it offered her the ability to live on her own for several years without any major problems, just an abdominal flare every now and then. But, things changed as her anemia worsened and she developed a condition where she has consistently at the risk of sepsis in her digestive track. She is weak and struggles to tranactivity around on her own after falling on the base of her spine 2 years ago and splitting her back in six weird venues. She was in a wheelchair for awhile but now she can walk somewhat well with a cane, even if her balance isn’t perfect, however sadly, both of us have dire allergies and every one of us are in seasoned doctors offices and hospitals all of the time. Many of these venues, despite being medical facilities, have seasoned and nasty smelling heating and cooling systems installed inside. I am sick of smelling mold for an hour or 2 while I impatiently wait in the front lobby of a medical office for our mother to finish her procedure that particular morning. These medical offices and hospitals desperately need to improve their Heating & A/C systems; multiple of their patients are there for respiratory problems, so you are forcing these terrible people to endure their flu symptom triggers just to get necessary treatment. I can’t even imagine what I would do if I had to come to a venue appreciate this because I was having trouble breathing every morning.

I learned about bumble bees

This past year the two of us have had a real problem with carpenter bees at our house.

These carpenter bees are different little creatures.

I’ve constantly been interested in honey bees plus bumblebees plus their ways of residing. I suppose that there’s nothing more fascinating than seeing bees at task inside their hives. I appreciate seeing documentaries about bees plus their queen plus the drones. However, I had never even heard of carpenter bees before this year. And let me tell you, I have had a disappointing experience with meeting them for the first time! Carpenter bees are bees that love wood. They bore into wood plus they also feed on nectar from flowers, carpenter bees love to feed on plus make their nests in wood, whether it’s aged piles of lumber or absolutely in your house! All of us had a problem with both this Springtime. All of us found a pressing bees’ nest in a pile of leftover lumber that the two of us had outside by our barn! Upon closer inspection, the two of us figured out that the two of us had a bunch of carpenter bees residing out there. Then, to our surprise plus dismay, the two of us found that the two of us had another bunch of them residing in the eaves underneath our roof! Since carpenter bees love wood, the two of us found out that whichever bee removal specialist the two of us used would have to use a specialized pesticide treatment to get rid of all of the carpenter bees. They would have to treat all the affected areas with this pesticide treatment, including the nest, in order to eliminate the bees. After that, they need to seal up all of the holes that the bees made so that no other insects will come along plus populate the nests afterwards.

 

 

Bee Removal

Getting rid of unwanted bumble bees without hurting them

Even though bees are honestly good for our environment, they can honestly cause concerns when their hive or nest is too close to people for comfort.

If you have a bee hive or a bees’ nest on your property, you suppose that they can cause major concerns for people plus critters. This is especially true if someone in your family has allergies to bees, wasps, or hornets. Bee removal specialists are specially trained in handling stinging insects love wasps, hornets, or bees. They suppose how to approach plus handle bees with caution plus in the ways that are safest for them plus for the bees. Because sometimes large numbers of bees can sting at the same time, most bee removal specialists wear special protective clothing plus suits to protect both themselves plus the bees. Most of these suits are made from thick canvas or other thick material to prevent the bees from being able to sting through the suit. Of course, since bees play such a vital space in making our environment healthy, most bee removal specialists will not remove a hive or a bees’ nest unless it’s apparent that the nest will be an actual threat to people. Occasionally a nest of bee hive will be built in the eave of a roof or up in a tall tree. Whenever that’s the case, bee removal specialists will use a high reach ladder plus a special bee pole made just for bee removal to get to the hive. Make sure that when you’re hiring a bee removal specialist that they are highly trained plus that they have a lot of experience at removing bee hives plus nests.

Filtration for the water and the air is necessary at these high altitudes

At really high altitudes, the water and air can sometimes be problematic.

  • My girlfriend and I wanted to move farther up in the mountains, and we started looking at real estate a few months ago.

Most of the properties are equipped with a water and air filtration unit. In fact, I would estimate that 90% of the properties had at least a water purifier and air purifier, or some other type of filtration system. My girlfriend and I searched and searched, and we finally found a wonderful two-bedroom cabin that seemed perfect for our needs. We contacted the local realtor and made arrangements to see the property right away. We drove 50 miles up the mountain, and we could tell that the altitude changed significantly. It really did feel different, and my girlfriend and I could smell the crispness of the mountain air. The two-bedroom cabin was absolutely perfect. Neither one of us were surprised to find an air filtration system and water purifier. We were surprised to see a brand new heating and air conditioning unit. Most of the cabins on the mountain don’t even have central heat or AC. When my girlfriend saw the new appliances, she turned around and smiled. I knew she was in love with the place, and we started discussing our options. After talking with the realtor, we decided to make an offer of full asking price. It only took two hours for the owners to respond, and they were pleased with our offer. My girlfriend and I will be closing on the sale in three weeks, as long as things go well.

Sleeping on my friends couch while I save for a new A/C

Thank God for good friends and family, because the local hotels can be extremely expensive. Last weekend, my AC unit stopped working. I knew the moment that I woke up and found the house warm, that I was going to have a major problem on my hands. The AC unit had a few problems in the past, and the last maintenance appointment didn’t go very well. The AC repair technician told me that the unit was on its last leg, and he suggested saving up for something new. Now I am stuck with an AC unit that needs to be replaced, and no money to make the change. I can only save so much money each week, and I have other bills like the water, electricity, and a car payment. It’s almost 85 degrees outside at night, so I can’t sleep at home. Luckily, one of my best friend’s lives close to my house. He’s been letting me sleep on the couch at night, so I can rest easier. I’m going to replace the AC unit next Friday, when I get my bonus check. Until then, I’ll be sleeping on my friend’s couch he’s been pretty great about the whole situation. He doesn’t mind having someone sleepover, and he likes the indoor climate cold just like me. We would probably make good roommates, but each have our own mortgage. The guy is fun for gaming and hockey, and we enjoy a football game and a cold beer. I can’t start to think about a better friend or neighbor to have in my life.
