A Note From The Boss: I’m Still Retiring, Just not Right Now

Well, things haven't gone exactly as planned. Evidently there is no special protection clause for seniors from Murphy's law. But isn't that just the way life is?

They say (when I was a teenager my Mom used to ask me who THEY are… and I still don't know, although I’m pretty sure she didn't approve of THEM) “life is what happens while you’re making plans” and actually it isn't so bad. I've been seeing a lot of old friends on my service calls, and making some new ones as well.

I know I’m a little slower these days but I make up for that by taking a lot of breaks and a few naps between the breaks. So for those of you who like to visit, I’m your dream technician. For those of you who are in a hurry, I apologize...but I'm still going to take breaks, and you can look at it this way... since we have a flat rate pricing you’re getting a lot more hours for the same price. It’s a win-win.

Usually when the door opens the first response is “hey aren't you retired”. It sort of feels like the old “hey we thought you were dead” greeting, but I’m still on this side of the grass and even though “kicking up your heels” has a whole new connotation these days, I’m still ready, willing… and somewhat able to complete the task. So don't look so shocked when I arrive at the door...just keep a bottle of water ready (adding a complimentary splash of medicinal scotch is a nice gesture), a place to sit down, and maybe a set of those shock paddle thingies handy and we’ll do fine. “Clear”.

Wishing you a prosperous year,

The Boss

Trying to Exceed Expectations

It is and always has been our goal to exceed your expectations of us. From top to bottom, we strive to provide excellence in service and provide you with the information you need to make educated decisions about repairs, up-grades, or the replacement of your AC system. We ask our techs to complete their jobs as if they were the clients and paying for the job themselves, and then leave their work area as clean or cleaner than when they arrived. We encourage your feed-back (good or bad) to let us know how we’re doing. We can’t improve unless we know the areas where we fall short.

R-22 Equipment Phase Out

The production of new R-22 (Freon) has been phasing out for many years now. Recently production was reduced by 90% of what was produced in 2008. Total production will be ceased by 2020. This has driven the price for the refrigerant way up.

If your technician says you need refrigerant, expect to have a larger than normal repair bill. It is sometimes difficult to locate small leaks. In the past, sometimes we have just topped off the charge and hoped the leak would get big enough to find on the next visit. Although our electronic leak detectors can find small leaks sometimes they just don't show up.

There are other ways to find leaks but they are time consuming and expensive. But now that the price for refrigerant is so high, it might be expedient to use the other methods or just replace the system if it’s older.

 Quotes

“When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth… remember Algebra.”

“If you were to spell out numbers you would have to reach one thousand before you used the letter ‘a’.”

“It’s a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it’s a depression when you lose yours.”

“Dear Santa, this year I’d like a fat bank account and a thin body… please don't confuse them like you did last year.”

“Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together.”

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”

“When you go into court you are putting your fate into twelve people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.”

“We learn something new every day, and lots of times it’s what we learned the day before that was wrong.”

“Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You'll both end up dirty but the pig will enjoy it.”

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as nothing is a miracle. The other is as everything is a miracle.”

“I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.”

“A woman's mind is cleaner than a mans: she changes it more often.”

“My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.”

 NOAA

 NOAA ( National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) says we can expect colder wetter weather in the Northern states and warmer, drier weather in the Southern states this winter. Or not. I’d say that’s a pretty safe forecast. Actually they had a reason for such a non-committal forecast but we just never know about the weather do we.

 How Does Your Thermostat Control Temperature:

Your thermostat is basically just a switch. It turns your ac or furnace on or off at a certain temperature. An internal sensor controls the switch until the temperature it is set for is reached. It does not control how fast your ac or furnace works. If you have a variable capacity ac or furnace, your thermostat can tell it which speed to run at, but it us still just a switch to turn it off or on.

New modern thermostats can be programmed to automatically adjust temperatures for different times of the day. If you happen to have a high end communicating system the thermostat can provide the technician with an amazing amount of information to help him diagnose service issues.

Intelligent thermostats can accumulate data and adjust their settings to coincide with your normal living habits and can be accessed and controlled from the internet via WI-FI. Some can even contact your cell phone if they sense certain problems.

Thermostats are evolving at an amazing rate and surprisingly are getting more customer friendly (once they are set up). Of course all of these features come with a cost. And as soon as they come up with one that can serve me breakfast in bed, I’ll consider forking out the dough. In the meantime I’ll just set the temperature myself. Of course my wife will come by a few minutes later and lower it. Hey, I wonder if they make one that’s invisible to women? Or maybe a His and Hers thermostat with Hers being a placebo. I'm just saying….
