Getting rid of wasps when they invade your space

You hear about bees all the time in the news these afternoons, and everyone is talking about how important it is to save the bees and protect the beehives. Well, of course bees are an integral section of our ecoplan and the two of us need to protect them if the two of us can. But periodically bees invade your residing section and when that happens, you have to put yourself and your family first, then if you find that you have a colony of bees residing on your property, first ask yourself if you can live with the bees being in close proximity to you and your family. If 1 of you has an allergic reaction to stinging insects, the answer would absolutely be no. You would need to call a professional exterminator who deal in bee removal as soon as possible. Never take the option of trying to remove the nest or hive yourself, especially if you’re the 1 who is allergic! And even though it’s superb to share the earth with honeybees and other bees, periodically these insects can become territorial and really hostile. When that’s the case, you have to protect yourself. Some bees can even do disfigure to your lake house if they decide to build a nest within the walls of your house or under the eaves of your porch or roofline. And while bees are not nearly as destructive as termites, they are still difficult to remove. That’s why calling a professional bee removal specialist is your best bet. If someone is experienced in bee removal, they will feel whether or not to relocate the hive or to just exterminate the bees in your space.

The air conditioner isn’t turning on

My partner plus I still use window air conditioning systems.

Every one of us didn’t have any ductwork in our apartment when all of us purchased it.

There is a boiler in the basement plus it works so efficiently that all of us didn’t want to put something different in. They told us there was natural gas in the area, if all of us wanted a gas furnace, however gas furnaces terrify me. I had a neighbor whose apartment blew up in the middle of the evening, plus they blamed it on the gas furnace. Every one of us wanted to keep the boiler. Every one of us knew our boiler was about twenty years old, however from what all of us read, that meant all of us had about twenty years left in it. Every one of us didn’t want to put that ugly ductwork in our house, just for air conditioner. Every one of us purchased more than two window air conditioner units, plus they are perfect for our needs. Now, all of us are getting older, plus all of us call my child to help us put the AC units into the window. Before he had a option to come over plus help us with the AC units, all of us had a heatwave hit. I picked up the 2 smaller AC units plus had them in the windows. My partner put the insulation around the AC units, so all of us didn’t lose any of the cool air. About an fourth later, I was trying to turn on the AC in our dining room, however the AC equipment wouldn’t turn on. I was afraid that all of us were finally going to need to start replacing these fifteen year old AC units. My partner came in plus looked at the AC equipment plus began to laugh. Neither of us had clogged it in.

The a/c isn’t working

My fiance and I still use window cooling systems.

Both of us didn’t have any HVAC duct in our apartment when every one of us purchased it.

I wish I had an excuse to leave work

My sister and I work in the same bakery.

We started in high school, and we never left.

My sister is in charge of all of the pastries, bagels, and muffins. I work on breads and pizzas, but we both get to work on the same shift each day. My sister and I often travel together in the same car, so we can save on gas and travel fees. Last week, I was looking for every excuse to leave the bakery in the middle of the day. I was feeling faint and sick, because the AC wasn’t working. The bakery owner called for an AC repair appointment when we arrived in the morning, but the first available time wasn’t until the afternoon. Since we had a lot of afternoon deliveries to make, we had to do our best to work through the awful heat. Without any air flow or cold AC, my sister and I did our best to stay level-headed. My sister isn’t affected by the heat as much as me, and I was starting to feel ill by lunch time. I took a break from noon until 1, and I left the store and sat at the bookstore on the corner. I had a cup of coffee and an English bagel. It wasn’t as good as the bakery, but at least the cold AC felt great. I had to work until 6 in the evening, and the AC wasn’t repaired until almost 3. I don’t know how I would have made it through the day, if not for the hour break at the corner bookstore.

Customer makes me the best chocolate chip cookies

Since I’ve been working at the same HVAC company for a decade, I know a lot of our customers by name.

  • Most of them have been using our service forever.

The HVAC company has been open for almost 25 years, and they have a wonderful name in our community. I knew about the company long before I ever started, and I was proud to be selected as an HVAC service candidate. I’ve met a lot of wonderful people in my years on the job. Mrs. Clark is one of those people. She is a wonderful woman with two dogs and a cat. Mrs. Clark has been using our HVAC services for a long time, and I can distinctly remember being on the service team to install two different AC units in her home. The last few years, I have been the person to provide a tune up to the AC unit and the gas furnace. Mrs. Clark is always happy to see me, and we always sit and chat for a few minutes. Last November, I was scheduled to perform the annual furnace tune-up on her equipment. I was really happy to see my favorite customer, and she presented me with a whole tray of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Mrs. Clark and I talked about cookies last time I serviced the furnace, and I couldn’t believe that she remembered. We sat and had coffee and chocolate chip cookies at the table, after I finished with the furnace tune-up. The cookies were as good as my mom’s, and they immediately made me think of home. There are a lot of things about this job that can be cumbersome, but I love all of the customers.

Advertising on the radio was a pure stroke of genius

I’ve been doing things the same way for a long time, and it’s worked out pretty good so far.

  • I’ve had my own AC repair business, since I was 25 years old.

I have a wife of 20 years and we have raised 3 kids with the proceeds from that AC repair business. Now things are changing a lot, and the technology has created a lot of problems. It’s hard for me to learn the new things, and I’ve had a hard time letting my son take over. He wanted us to advertise on the radio for the past year, but I only protested. I didn’t want to spend that kind of advertising money, because we are a very small AC repair business. I didn’t think the amount of exposure would equal the amount of money that we would spend. I have to give it to my kid, because he pushed me and pushed me, and he was right. We paid for an advertising slot on the radio, and our AC repair business was featured in a 15-second promo, 12 times during the day. During the seven days that our AC repair business advertisement ran, we had 100% more calls, and 30% more business. All this time, I didn’t want to change my way of doing things. I thought I knew what was best for the AC repair business to grow, but now I’m starting to think that my son might have the right idea. It’s going to be a difficult decision to make, but I think my kid might be ready to take over. I might actually be able to retire some day.

Fixing up the old mansion and making it ours

My wife and I have always loved going to auctions, flea markets, and yard sales. There’s something really fun and mysterious about purchasing something that could be worth a fortune. My wife and I have found a couple of antiques along the way, and we have even managed to make a dollar here and there. A few years ago, my wife and I decided to go to an estate auction. We knew they were going to auction the entire estate, including the contents of the home and the home itself. My wife and I were looking for a couple of nice lamps, end tables, and an old antique desk. We ended up falling in love with the house, and we actually stayed until the end to place a bid. My wife and I work prepared to buy a house at that time, so we didn’t have a lot of money. Luckily, the auction price on this old Victorian mansion was a steal. Unfortunately, there was a great deal of renovations that needed to be made. Some of those renovations included working on the plumbing, HVAC components, and the flooring. We paid $12,000 to a plumbing contractor, so we could fix the problems with the master bathroom and the plumbing lines. Then we paid the HVAC contractor another $10,000 to redo all of the ductwork and install a brand new central climate control machine. After the HVAC contractor finished with his work, we finally laid down new carpets and moved into the house. It was a lot of hard work, but the place look so nice.

The Post Office Is Way Too Hot For Me

With a venue prefer the post office, couldn’t they at least invest in a basic central heating and air conditioner unit? It is not prefer they needed 1 of the commercial industrial heating and air conditioner units, because the venue was not that big.

One thing I certainly hate doing in the Summer, is having to go to our local post office for anything. It is rare that I have to these days, but back about 6 or 7 years ago, I was having to go to the post office every other day! I was working a job where I had to option up a lot of packages for the business I worked for; And that post office had the worst air conditioner ever! Not to mention, the indoor air conditions of the venue was god awful. With a venue prefer the post office, couldn’t they at least invest in a basic central heating and air conditioner unit? It is not prefer they needed 1 of the commercial industrial heating and air conditioner units, because the venue was not that big. I personally recognize our local post office is a bunch of cheapskates! You expect people to suffer without air conditioner because you are too cheap to buy a nice working cooling unit for the building. I certainly recognize bad for the postal workers who have to labor in that inferno that feels prefer a immense aged gas furnace. It is a total shock to myself and others that I have not heard any stories about postal workers dying of heat strokes from not having proper working air conditioner in the venue. I am happy I aint gotta go there no more in the Summer! That is unless I have to option up a package of our own that didn’t get delivered to our home for whatever the reason may be.

The studio apartment

I am a special kind of artist, our canvas is a car, our medium is airbrush paint, and our studio is a more than three car garage.

I have more than two men who work for me, but they mostly handle the nuts and bolts of the operation.

They handle the money, deal with the customers, make sure the company stays profitable. They do all of that so I can just focus on the art, and give the best car exteriors in the city. These are just paint tasks, these are rolling works of art and I put our soul into every a single of them… One of our people who helps me out used to be an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair tech back in the day. He has been retired for years, but he is a honestly cool guy and he also knows more about air conditioning than all the people ever will. This is important to me, because I like our studio to be honestly cold, and I have to tendency to overheat our air conditioning units from time to time, then now I have Gus on staff, and he checks out all the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C components properly, at least once a week, to make sure it never breaks down. He also does a few things around the shop, but mostly I have him here for the AC help and the conversation. He will stand with me while I paint sometimes, but not for long because I like the AC so chilly I can see our breath. I believe the extreme cooling makes for cleaner lines in our art.
