Running your air conditioner but not noticing any improvements in your home’s temperature? If this is a reoccurring problem then it is likely that you have failed to keep up with the maintenance of your home’s air conditioner. Though it may have been a while since you last serviced your unit, no need to worry as there are many great at-home services that you can implement to improve the performance and efficiency of your unit, like the following: Upkeep the Condenser Unit: The condenser component of your air conditioner is a critical aspect when it comes to revamping the performance of your AC. Without a properly working air conditioner your unit may lack fuel delivery and may not be able to chill the air enough to drop the temperature in your home as rapidly as it should. So, to ensure maximum performance, you will want to clean the vents of your condenser so that it can have the air intake that it needs to properly cool your home. Fix Air Leaks: Fixing air leaks can be a tremendous help if your duct has minor holes allowing the cool air to escape. If your duct has holes, you will want to wrap foil-faced insulation over these holes to stop the air leaks. This service alone can be just the improvement that you need to see excellent results from your air conditioner. Swap Old Filters: Old filters can become clogged with debris and dust, minimizing the airflow and this can reduce the air levels that are blown into your home. This can cause you to run your unit for extended periods at a time in order to compensate for the lack of air delivery, which means you will be spending more on your electricity bill and seeing poor performance from your unit. Also, having old and dirty filters can impact the air quality of the air that is being delivered to your home which can likely be a threat to your health. So, replacing old filters on a regular basis is best for both your health and the performance of your system. Applying these tips can be a quick, easy, and a very effective way to revamp the overall performance and efficiency of your unit, which can not only help you cool down the temperature of your home in a timely manner but can also help you reduce the cost of your AC utilization due to you being able to minimize the use of electricity consumption related to poor...

Posted by on 1:01 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Tips For Streamlining Recycling At An Event

If you are hosting a large event, you can save a lot of waste by recycling correctly. But getting everyone on board with recycling at an event can be tricky. Here are some steps you can take to make recycling a reality at your event.  Have Adequate Recycling Space The first step is to make sure that you have adequate space for your recyclable goods. If your bins start to overflow halfway through the event, do you have a way to refresh your recycling space? You could either schedule a pickup if your recycling services can be on call, or you might want to rent roll off dumpsters to house recycled goods. This way, your clean-up crew can dump any full recycling bins into a final dumpster that will be recycled after the event.  Label Recycling Spots Clearly Your labeling will make a huge difference in how much people recycle. If they are enjoying the event and need to throw something away, they may not put a lot of effort into figuring out the correct bins for recycling. You may want to have your trash bins and recycling bins in a different spot so that there isn’t any confusion. Make sure the bins are a different size, shape, and color from your regular trash cans so that people don’t mistake the two.  Mention the Importance of Recycling You may also want to briefly explain the recycling system at some point during the event. A quick, 30 second speech will draw people’s attention to the importance of recycling at your event. And your words may stick in their mind later when they go to throw some items away.  Hire Greeters You could also hire a recycling crew to be present at the event and help people recycle. They can tactfully direct people to the recycling bins when necessary.  Hire Some Sorters You may not have a perfect recycling bin after your event, so hire a clean up crew to do some sorting of your recycling bins. They can pull recyclable items out of the trash cans and also remove trash from the recycling bins.  These steps will make it easier for you to collect recycling materials without a ton of extra effort. Your recycling services might have ideas about how you can make recycling more efficient at your event as well, such as building easy-to-use recycling infrastructure and facilitating easy pickup of recyclable goods.  For more information, contact local professionals like Ground Effects Hauling...
