Air Conditioner clean and check

Beware of the $ 49.00 Air Conditioner Spring/Summer special clean and check !!  This is simply a way to get the phone to ring at your local Heating & Air Co. office.   A true clean and check takes about 2-3 hours and cost as much as $ 250.00, if they are actually performing a 23 point clean and check. Most larger and some smaller companies are merely using this low advertised price to come to your home with a goal of selling you something. If you still insist on purchasing one of these misleading “clean & checks” I suggest you actually watch the service tech, make sure that they connect the gauges to the system and truly check it out, you would find that connecting the gauges and performing just that part takes at least an hour, and then some.

In summary, you won’t get a real clean and check for $ 49.00,  try researching this fact for your self on the internet and you will see that the $ 49.00 clean and check is really a scam.

Enjoy a Safe Start to Spring.

As the spring season officially begins, many will welcome the warmer weather by thoroughly cleaning and organizing their homes. The Electrical Safety Foundation (ESFI) recommends that homeowners inspect the safety of their homes in tandem with their spring cleaning to ensure that electrical hazards are eliminated along with dust and clutter.

The kitchen is the leading area of origin for home structure fires. As you clean your kitchen, follow these simple safety tips from ESFI to identify and correct potential hazards before someone gets hurt:
• Keep your stove and oven clean. Clean the exhaust hood and duct over the stove regularly.
• Keep the cooking area around the stove/oven clear of combustibles, such as towels, napkins, and pot holders.
• Locate all appliances away from the sink. Plug countertop appliances into ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs).
• Keep appliance cords away from hot surfaces like the range or toaster. Unplug the toaster and other countertop appliances when not in use.
• Make sure there is room behind the refrigerator for air to circulate.
• Vacuum refrigerator coils to eliminate dirt buildup that can reduce efficiency and create a fire hazard.
• Any electric shock from a major appliance can indicate an extremely hazardous wiring condition. Turn the power to the appliance off at the circuit breaker, and do not touch the appliance until it has been checked by a licensed, qualified electrician.
Another important area to inspect in the home is the basement, which houses two additional leading causes of home fires: heating equipment and electrical distribution systems. Keep your home safe from the bottom up by following these important basement safety tips:
• Check the label inside the door or cover of your electrical service panel to see when your electrical system was last inspected. If the date has passed or is approaching, contact a licensed, qualified electrician and schedule an inspection.
• Be sure circuit breakers and fuses are correctly labeled with their amperage and their corresponding rooms, circuits or outlets. Use correct size and current rating for breakers/fuses.
• Increase your fire protection by having a qualified, licensed electrician replace your standard circuit breakers with arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs).
• Have your furnace cleaned and inspected annually by a licensed, qualified professional.
• Make sure all fuel-burning equipment, such as furnaces, stoves, and fireplaces, is vented to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Check for excessive vibration or movement when the washing machine or dryer is operating, which can put stress on electrical connections.
• Make sure the area around the dryer is free of clutter, and clean the dryer lint filter after each load.
And lastly, make sure smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are installed on every level of your home and outside every sleeping area. Test these alarms to ensure that they are in working order, and replace the batteries if necessary.
