The air purifier works great

Last year, I found out that our rental property has a few issues that I hadn’t planned on.  Mold was one of the biggest issue, but the only way to fix it was to improve the air quality. How was I to do that without central air conditioner or the ability to repair the property? After a month of research, plus reading product reviews, I found the answer in a media air cleaner. The first step to picking the right one is figuring out your square footage! You don’t need to measure your whole apartment, just measure the largest room because air purifiers are actually entirely lightweight, despite their size, so you can transport it from one room to the next without issue. I measured our main living space, then sized our air cleaner accordingly. The model I chose is a fairly tall tower air cleaner with a three section filtering system. This state of the art media air cleaner uses a charcoal pre filter to trap larger particulates, a HEPA filter–which is the only kind that can collect the mold spores–and finally a UV light. The UVC light can kill bacteria on a microscopic level. The charcoal filter may sound useless, but it actually helps the HEPA air filter to last even longer. I love to leave it in our living room, all evening, turned on so it can take all the time it needs to sanitize our house. Thanks to our air cleaner, our home is mold free plus I’m breathing better than ever before.

The basement heating equipment

My roommates are baffled at how much time I spend in the basement of our rental house. On cold mornings like we’ve been having recently, it is the perfect little sanctuary! Our home has a finished basement, with its own living room & powder room. If you can get past the huge spiders, it also maintains the perfect temperature all year round. While the basement has its own temperature control for the oil boiler, I rarely need to turn it on, this is because the basement has its own fascinating manner of staying moderate no matter how cold it gets outside. I suppose it’s because it has almost no windows, whatever the cause, the basement hangs onto the moderate air from the oil boiler & never lets it go. When its actually bad, I turn the central gas furnace on for a half hour at most, & then I instantly turn it off. In that short span of time, it can make the temperature control climb all the way to 75, which is more than moderate enough for me. I don’t need to bury myself under a bunch of blankets, or throw on my home slippers to fight the chill. When I get sick & tired of being chilly upstairs, I can go down to the basement & study a book or get some writing done. I never thought I would find myself being comfortable in a basement–I’m so used to them being musty & gross–but this finished bonus room has me changing my tune! Plus, it saves me from needing to turn up the oil boiler on the temperature control.

The awful heater device

I was up in my room two days ago, simply working on a client’s edits, when I heard a entirely bizarre sound. At first I thought it was just unusual feedback from my headphones, or a cat running laps again. However, an hour later, I heard it again, then that time. Since my roommates had gone to her work for the day, I took off my headphones and listened to my rock music on my speakers; I had a lot of work to do, although I wanted to try and figure out the  noise. Hours later, when the furnace kicked on due to the setting sun, I had my answer. The noise started again instantly after. Sure enough, as soon as I went downstairs, the boiler made itself heard. The sound itself was pretty deafening; it had a pitch to it that made my ears ring. I know nothing about boilers, but there was a card on the side that the building owner or the Heating and Air Conditioning guy must have been using to keep track of service. The last date of maintenance was 4 years ago, and not only that, but the boiler is 35 years old! I texted my roommates and called my building owner ASAP. He tried to tell me that it was on us to maintenance the Heating and Air Conditioning, even though it’s nowhere on the lease. After two hours of arguing, the building owner is finally getting the boiler diagnosed. I’m going to be happy if he has to spend money to upgrade it too.

Furnace dead after 2 days

I decided to buy a new electric gas furnace this year. I wasn’t planning on the purchase, however the apartment needed a new gas furnace, and during the month of November, all of the local stores have substantial black Wednesday specials. The toy store was offering BOGO board games and matchbox sets. The local supercenter had 5 dollars video games and 5 blu ray discs. Even the grocery store was offering some crazy black Wednesday specials on pork, chicken, and fish. This year, the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier got into the spirit and had a one morning sale on new gas furnaces. Any buyer who purchased a new gas furnace would acquire free upgrade. That was a significant savings, because the average upgrade fees are well over a thousand dollars. I decided there would be no better time to buy a new gas furnace. I drove down to the distribution center and checked out the available models. Once I chose the gas furnace I wanted, I tied up a time for upgrade. Because of the gas furnace sale, they were backed up on upgrade dates until multiple weeks later. I did not have any choice however to wait. My new electric gas furnace was installed Last week. They honored the upgrade deal, and I was really surprised there were no strings attached. I have a new gas furnace now, and it works great. The Winter season weather hasn’t been terribly freezing yet, however it won’t be long before there is snow on the ground. The new electric gas furnace is going to save me a ton of money in bi-weekly heating bills. I wonder if the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier lost any money in the deal?

Jerry and I have been friends for as long as I can remember.  My friends used to tease me that he was my boyfriend, but I never thought of him in that way.  I had a friend whom I could count on and trust. Jerry and I were inseparable for quite some time.  One day, he started to talk about college and I couldn’t understand why I was so sad. We had been paling around for ten years now, and I should have been happy that he had received a scholarship.  A year later, I was looking for an apartment that was close to the college. I was surprised to see Jerry coming up the sidewalk. He wanted to know if I would mind sharing an apartment with him. We moved in two weeks later.  We instantly began to realize that we hit it off, when living together. We had the thermostat set at seventy, we had the bills split down the middle and we respected each other. A couple weeks later, I brought my boyfriend home.  He was a jock who liked to have the house cooler. He set the thermostat down to sixty-five when we went to bed. When Jerry came home, he set it back up to seventy and he told me about my boyfriend messing with the thermostat. I had to talk to my boyfriend and he got angry and walked out.  I didn’t know Jerry was so obsessed with something as little as having the thermostat reset. We worked it out, but I soon found out he had moved because of me. The thermostat was just the point where he realized he wanted me and not the school.

Recently, my father took his experience heating, ventilation, and air conditioning and opened his own contracting firm.  He laughed because he had been the one who had sent me to school for graphic arts and website design. He said that now he would be able to use my schooling to help him out.  He wanted to be able to design a website and a logo that would bring interest to his HVAC contracting firm. He told me all of the ideas that he had for the logo and left me on my own.  What I came up with pleased me, but he was thrilled. We then incorporated the logo into the website, and we were both happy with the looks. It took us a couple weeks to edit and re-edit before we were totally happy with the website and I could make it live.  Once the website went live, I kept watching the results and changing the SEO of the website, to draw attention from people looking for a HVAC contractor. Within the first month, his HVAC website had made onto the first page of searches in both Yahoo and Google.  My dad was so happy when he got his first job from the website. A gentleman in our town, was looking for someone to redo the ventilation system in his pizzerias. My dad jumped at the chance, and he instantly made his first job acquisition. Over the last year, his HVAC contracting firm has tripled in size and added three additional HVAC technicians.  He has four high-profile HVAC contracts to fulfill and he is looking to once again double his inventory and his staff.
