Prevent Issues With Your AC Unit

When is the last time you thought about your air conditioner? If you are anything like most homeowners, it has probably been a while. This is normal since your AC unit probably works every time you turn it on. They are durable pieces of machinery that can last for up to a decade, but it can be a disaster when something goes wrong, especially in the summer. Next thing you know your AC unit won’t turn on in the sweltering summer months and your repairman is so backed up with other emergencies they can’t make it out to your house for a couple weeks.

Obviously, you want to prevent issues with your AC unit before they occur. If you aren’t an HVAC specialist like we are, this can be harder to realize than you think. You probably don’t know everything that can go wrong with an HVAC system. Here are some signs that you may need a new air conditioner unit so you can fix the problem before it is too late.

1. It’s over ten years old – Most air conditioner units last about ten years before they start having problems if they are properly maintained. Even if your older unit isn’t having problems, they could arise at any time. Have one of our technicians come out and take a look at your old unit to determine if it should be replaced soon. You may even want to consider updating it to a new energy-efficient model which could save you a lot of money on your energy bills.

2. It’s Noisy – Usually, when a piece of machinery sounds different, it’s for a reason. This is as true with AC units as it is with anything else. If your unit is making a weird noise it is a good sign that you need to have it checked out immediately.

3. It seems like you are calling your repairman every other week – If you have to constantly repair your AC unit, it may be cheaper in the long run just to bite the bullet and buy a new one. These repairs can really add up over time.

Covered The Bottom Part Of The Screen Door

Just few months ago, I was able to hire someone to repair our screen door, it was repaired but little did I know that it was lacking of something at the bottom part to prevent mouse to get inside the house. There was a small hole at the bottom part; it needs to be covered so no small mouse can get inside the house. It has been a while that mouse were coming in and out of the house because of the small hole. I didn’t know what to do at all until I realized that it’s lacking of a cover. I checked the screen door of the living room and I noticed a cover at the bottom part. I need a cover for our kitchen screen door, I was thinking to visit a screen door installer nearby but I just don’t have the time until last week, I visited their store and ask them if they have something to cover the hole of the screen door they repaired few months ago. The in-charge said they would look at it, they visited the house a day after and they informed my sister the labor fee, when I got home, my sister told me how much is the installment fee. It was P 200. 00, which was not bad at all compared the suffering we got when mouse would get inside the house. Even if I would buy stick pad for it, these mouse will not going to get rid off if we won’t cover the hole. On that day, when my sister called them and told them that we were okay with the fee, the installer went here right away and installed the cover. Now I can see no more rats at all, thank Goodness!

One Of My Goals, One Of My Achievements

It was only last month that I decided to put an awning type or roof in our laundry area, this plan has been long overdue but due to financial constraints, it was only then realized recently. Good thing that recently I am so determined to saved up and I am proud to say that this is from my hard earn and from my saving.  Nevertheless, I have to thank my husband for the endless support; of course without him sending funds for our bills, some improvements in our house will not be achieved.

My sister is just so happy seeing this as she will no longer suffer from the dreading heat of the sun whenever she does the laundry. This has been used as a shelter for our dogs when they could not bear the summer heat in front of the house, they would go here to cool down.

So my next project will be the extension but I know I will have to start from dust, I need to save more for that. And I have to do a budget statement whenever I spend some things so my savings will not be ruin. It’s tempting to just spend without minding the project at all, but I want to do some fix and maybe renovation for this house because this is my only gift to my kids when I am gone. (knock on the wood) 

How I wish though that I am still here to witness their achievement in life.

In the meantime, I need to work hard for their future. I mean seriously, I really need to earn big bucks of money for this house, this serve already as one of my achievement and I am totally into it.

Swing Door Operator Replaced

The swing door operator of our screen door in the kitchen is busted. It will not going to close slowly but it bang right away when you let it go. It has been like that for so many years already. The screen was also damaged; it has many big holes already. I needed to replace it. I was thinking to replace het whole swing door but somebody advised me that I can replace only the swing door operator and the screen, so to save some bucks especially I am on the tight budget. The swing door operator costs P 950. 00 and the screen cost P 800. 00 so I took the opportunity. I called right away the shop that will do the replacement, they took the swing door so they can install the swing door operator and put on the new screen. I was not around when they took the swing door. It was my sister who accommodated them, and my sister changes the request. She said that the screen in the upper looks good still and no holes at all, so she asked them to just replace the bottom part, which only half of the original price. So instead I paid them P800.00 for the screen, I only paid them P 400. 00. It saves me more, I thought it could be done that way but they did. Now our screen do not bang at all when you let it go and no mosquitoes anymore could get inside the house, if there is it is only minimal.
