If you work in an office with bad AC here is what to do

I used to work in an office where the AC was never working.

I would dread going to work because of how hot it was going to be, even in the winter with no AC it was hot.

The furnace worked, but we never needed it. I mentioned to the CEO that it would increase worker productivity if he put a better HVAC system in the office and he actually considered doing it. I heard him talking to some HVAC technicians and he even had someone come out to look at the AC unit. We were all amazed that he actually had an HVAC technician come out, but nothing ever came of it. I worked there for a few months with no AC until I just couldn’t take it anymore. After awhile I found a new job and one of the first things I noticed when I went to work was that I actually didn’t feel hot because there was an AC unit! As a matter of fact there was AC unit and they also had portable AC units and heaters available if the temperature needed to be changed per cublicale. I told my boss how amazing it was that he had such a great HVAC system and he told me that it was something he knew was really important. He told me how he used to have a job working at an office where there was no air conditioner and he couldn’t stand it. He told me that he also read studies that showed worker productivity increased when people were happy with their HVAC systems. I know that I am much happier now that I work somewhere with a working thermostat!

Experience truly makes all of the difference

Last winter the town that I live in was hit by one of the most intense storms that we had ever seen. Nearly all the homes in my neighborhood were damaged, ours included. One of the things that was damaged the most was our state of the art heating and cooling unit. We were nervous to call the local HVAC ventilation, heating and cooling company for a variety of reasons. The biggest reason why I was worried about calling them and scheduling a repair call was the recent influx of new HVAC repairman they had hired the past few years. I understand that people in all professions have to start somewhere, but we had already had bad experiences with inexperienced HVAC repairman in the past. We didn’t really have much of a choice however, so we decided to bite the bullet and book an appointment for the next day to get the heating and cooling running. The next day when the HVAC repairman arrived and got to work on the unit however, we were so surprised to find that he was clearly extremely good at working on units such as these, and he was still so young! He was able to get the air conditioning unit back to normal in under and hour, leaving us feeling speechless. After offering the man some coffee and snacks, we ended up learning that he got his experience as a young teenager from working with his dad on heating and cooling units of all shapes and sizes years before he even became a certified HVAC repairman. I guess it just goes prove us wrong that it doesn’t matter how young or old you are when it comes to the HVAC world, it’s all about the experience!

A well balanced landlord

Over my time as an adult, I have lived in many different places and have also had to deal with many different landlords.

  • As a tenant, there are only a few things that you really are looking for in a landlord.

Someone who is easy to get in contact with, somewhat friendly, and a fair person. Even though this is what all tenants are looking for, finding a landlord with these traits is harder to find than you would think! A few years ago when I moved into my new apartment downtown however, my luck was able to finally take a turn for the better. My landlord at this new place is a great guy, but what makes him even better is that he is a retired HVAC repair tech. I don’t want to imagine all of the money I have spent hiring local HVAC ventilation, heating and cooling companies to come out and repair my air conditioning unit. The repairs are usually of low quality, and this leads me to have to hire more HVAC personnel which really hit me hard on the financial side of things. With my new landlord though, he is the one who takes care of any problems with the air conditioning unit, and he does it for free! I hate having to talk to strangers and plan appointments, so being able to shoot a text over to my friendly landlord to come fix the air ducts in my air conditioning unit that have been giving me a problem, I couldn’t ask for anything more as a tenant. Even if I ever find a new place to move that has a lower monthly rent there is only a slim chance that I will pack up and move, unless the landlord there also knows his way around an a/c unit.

 

 

Heating and cooling equipment

I savor all this information

Ever since the early 2000s, I have been active in all sorts of online communities and forums.

These have spanned topics and interests as diverse as orchid care and woodwork.

One forum that I stayed active in for over a decade was this phenomenal house repair board. I l received how to install light fixtures in our basement and how to drain and disinfect our water heater! My proudest achievement yet was building a treecondo for our kids. The looks of sheer joy and excitement on their faces when I finished it made all of the time and hard labor completely worth it. Recently though, I have been searching for information to help myself and others diagnose complications I’m having with our central a/c. The stream of air leaving the ceiling vents seems weaker than normal and I just can’t seem to keep the temperature in our condo as low as where I set the control unit. It’s as if the entire Heating as well as A/C plan is lagging behind. I study 1 forum post discussing switching out to a current filter, and that legitimately helped but it didn’t proper all of the complications. More searches on the web yielded results for coolant leaks, where small cracks in the evaporator coil can leak out the coolant needed to cool your air. I decided to call a specialist and particularally ask them if the refrigerant needed to be topped off. Thankfully, not only was that the case, but there were also no major cracks in the coil that would indicate the need to replace it entirely. That’s a nice thing too, because evaporator coils are not cheap.

I was attempting to improve the technology

DIY, or do-it-yourself culture is stronger than ever before thanks to websites enjoy YouTube and Wikipedia.

The last 10 years has seen a sizable insurgence of text and video tutorials, several free and readily available at 1’s fingertips.

Smartphones are surpassing iPads in features and functionality, meaning I can for instance tilt our PC on our workbench and watch the necessary tutorial just inches away from our tools and supplies. This is great in the dining room particularally, since you can open a recipe or an instructional video right as you assemble your ingredients or while you stir your pot. I have l received so much from DIY videos over the years that I convinced myself the I could manage to repair and repair our a/c with the right directions. I determined that I was low on coolant and set out to find a source so I could top off our Heating as well as A/C plan myself. I made 2 grave errors—first, I obtained the wrong coolant to begin with, and finally, I miscalculated the pressure in the machine and added too much. My evaporator coil cracked in several places as a result, now I plan to have a professional repair our Heating as well as A/C plan and will exercise caution and humility whenever I attempt to repair something from here on out. There is a sizable difference between making delicious spare ribs from a recipe and servicing an lavish heating and cooling system. I’m not going to pretend watching videos on the internet makes myself and others an expert at doing something, especially when the real experts spend their whole lives refining their trades. I’m going to stick to what I guess best, cooking.

Residential HVAC

I just hate being sick

I have to say, although I hate being sick, hate going to hospitals, plus even more so hate going to doctors, I love the air quality! Doctor’s offices always seem to have the best air quality around in my humble opinion, however every single time I have ever went to a doctor’s office, the air quality has been so good, it was even better than my whole cabin air purification idea in my own house! Now that should tell you something! The heating plus air conditioner in the doctor’s office is also pretty darn great… When you combine attractive top of the line air quality with the top of the line heating plus air conditioner, it is just the most refreshing plus fantastic thing you would ever experience in your whole entire lifetime! The last time I had to go to a doctor for my yearly physical check up, I was really looking forward to going just because I knew about that great air quality.

Also, I was really hoping that I would be stuck in the waiting room for a long time, but most people hate that long wait at a doctor’s office.

But not me, I welcome it because of the great air quality! In the Winter, I bet the heating is just as good. It may be something about that commercial central heating plus air conditioner idea that gives the great air quality. But whatever it is, I love the doctor’s office! I will never change my mind on that. I just hope the next time I go it’s for a check up, plus not because i’m sick.

 

HVAC service

That broke down on me

I had a real heft Heating, Ventilation plus A/C repair expense the other week! I had got a single of those dual fuel systems, then i have to tell you that the dual fuel idea is a really awesome thing all around. Sure, I paid a little money for it, although I ended up making that money back in the energy savings I accomplished from getting the dual fuel idea installed into my home; But, that all changed a few weeks back when my dual fuel idea broke down on me! When a dual fuel idea breaks down, it is not anything that you can repair on your own; And the a single large negative to having a dual fuel system, is if it does ever break down, love what just happened to me, you will be paying a lot for the repair! I dreaded doing it, although I had no choice however to call a certified heating plus air conditioner professional from my local heating plus air conditioner contractor to schedule an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C repair appointment to get the dual fuel idea fixed. All depending on what caused the dual fuel idea to break down, was what was going to play a large area in deciding the price that the certified heating plus air conditioner specialist was going to charge me to repair the dual fuel system… Just my luck, it had to be the worst possible case of what could happen to a dual fuel system, plus my heating plus air conditioner repair bill was through the roof! I really should have bought into an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C repair plan.
