A local maintenance worker

I’m not entirely the safest or most cautious person on this earth, there’s no doubt about that, however that’s why it’s so funny to myself and others that I’ve been put in charge of my corporation’s safety program at large, and maybe it’s because both of us need 1 so badly, or maybe it’s because I’m just a sucker, however somehow I’m not the lead safety officer around here… and that scares myself and others quite a bit, then no matter how much I plan for, it seems love there is constantly a current safety issue to be upset about. Most recently, 1 tiny oversight resulted in a major safety issue for us all, 1 that I never could have foreseen… It all started when our A/C unit decided it was done now working respectfully last week, and started to produce warm air instead of cold. The air was unpleasantly boiling and humid inside the entire building, and both of us were running fans from every corner to create a minor breeze, but when both of us finally got the stupid cooling proposal to beginning functioning again, it came with a price… Rather than running as normal, it began to produce a ton of condensation along the side of the A/C unit. This would normally be no sizable deal, except for the fact that our A/C is situated directly above the bar room floor. This meant water was dripping constantly from the cooling unit down onto our public space – and being a bar, you can imagine that having a cold, wet spot was less than ideal; One night into the A/C drip, a shopper slipped in the puddle and took a extreme fall. Now everyone is required to have routine Heating and A/C repair as space of our safety protocol.

Most recently, a single tiny oversight resulted in a major safety issue for us all, a single that I never could have foreseen… It all started when our AC unit decided it was done finally working correctly last week, and started to produce hot air instead of cold.

A tightly sealed home

Because of the severe weather in the area where I live, there is rarely an opportunity to open the windows and allow in fresh air.  It is necessary to rely on either a heating or cooling system just about year round. To avoid unnecessarily high utility bills, I’ve gone to great lengths to tightly seal my home.  I’ve spent a small fortune to replace all of the old windows with Energy Star rated windows. I’ve caulked around the windows, weatherstripped all of the doors, and installed ceiling fans.  I hired a licensed HVAC contractor to improve the insulations in the walls, ceilings and crawlspaces, and install an attic fan. I’ve enrolled in an HVAC maintenance plan, which includes two professional service calls per year.  A licensed technician shows up in the spring and fall to clean, tune and inspect the furnace and air conditioner. He removes the buildup of contaminants within the inner workings, which could block airflow, cause longer running times, and result in higher energy bills.  All of my efforts help to keep my monthly costs as low as possible. However, I’ve also eliminated ventilation and trapped all sorts of pollutants inside the house. Things like dust, dander, fumes, bacteria and viruses simply get circulated for months at a time, are breathed by my family, and cause a serious health concern.  To combat this problem, I’ve invested in a heat recovery ventilation system. The ventilator is a lot like opening a window with none of the drawbacks. It brings in fresh outside air without energy waste. The ventilator actually reduces the workload of the furnace by using the outgoing stale air to preheat the incoming air. In the summer, it helps to combat excess humidity.  The ventilator has helped to lower my monthly costs while improving the health, cleanliness and enjoyment of my home.

 

A construction project

Before my husband, Keith and I bought our new home, we hired a certified HVAC professional to inspect and verify the condition of the furnace and air conditioner.  The HVAC technician provided a thorough cleaning, tuning and troubleshooting, and assured us the equipment was in good shape and should operate reliable for quite a few more years.  Once we moved in, Keith and I tackled a whole bunch of remodeling projects. We tore down walls, ripped up floors, replaced windows, and updated the entire kitchen. Since we created a lot of dust and debris, we decided not to operate the air conditioner.  Although it was the end of June and the outside temperature was quite hot, we got by with opening the windows and running some box fans. Having an influx of fresh air helped with fumes and issues with air quality. The many projects took about six weeks, and it was such a relief to finally clean up and organize our home.  Keith and I were anxious to shut the windows and enjoy the comfort of the air conditioner. Once we started up the cooling system, it ran just fine for several hours and then quit. Keith replaced the air filter and found it completely obstructed with debris. Unfortunately, this did not fix the problem, and we were forced to call the HVAC contractor back.  When he took the cooling unit apart, he found it severely clogged with construction contaminants. He told us that we should always cover the supply and return vents before starting a messy project. He once again carefully cleaned the inner workings of both the furnace and air conditioner. After that second service, the cooling system operated just fine again.

There are definitely issues here

My buddy is a enjoyable guy but can be somewhat boorish at times.  He cares about to complain about anything that doesn’t go as he sees fit.  Of course, all disappointments plus issues he encounters are someone else’s fault.  Sweet guy but has no big picture perspective at all. I was walking back from the mailbox when this buddy caught me.  He was outraged by some information his Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier had just relayed. The Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier had reminded him again that it would be in his best interest to update his heating plus cooling unit.  The neighbor’s Heating plus Air Conditioning plan had to have been at least twenty years old. But, you would have thought the EPA itself had come to his house. My buddy was certainly perturbed by the fact that come 2020 his Heating plus Air Conditioning unit will be obsolete for the most part.  January 1st, 2020 is when the manufacture of R 22 refrigerant becomes illegal. R 22 is often referred to as Freon. My buddy could not think that Freon would no longer be available. He felt it was outrageous that the federal government could legislate such a deeply personal issue. My buddy was simply beside himself he had a couple of years to get his act together.  I tried to commiserate by suggesting his Heating plus Air Conditioning plan was due to be updated. He told myself and others I didn’t think what I was talking about plus his Heating plus Air Conditioning components would go another ten years if it wasn’t for the government. With that I bid him farewell but, secretly wished his Heating plus Air Conditioning unit would simply fail.  Was that wrong?
