The Importance of Regular HVAC Maintenance


No matter what kind of central HVAC system you are operating, it is vital to understand just how important regular maintenance can be. Altogether too many people think it’s just a matter of switching out filters every month or so and while that is truly important, it is not all there is to regular maintenance. Whether you have a large commercial unit or a smaller home HVAC system, there are multiple reasons why it is important to keep up with maintenance.

Regular Maintenance Saves Money

One of the very first benefits you will discover with regularly scheduled HVAC Maintenance Services is just how much money you can save running your unit 12 months out of the year. In the winter, you need heat and on those long, hot days of summer, you surely need the relief air conditioning brings. Actually, there are several ways in which regular maintenance can save money, beginning with more efficient operation. 

Think about your personal vehicle. You are advised to have all the fluids and filters changed every so many thousands of miles and the same holds true of your HVAC system. You probably notice how much smoother your car runs after every oil change and your brakes stop squeaking when the brake fluid is changed and filled. Your vehicle not only operates smoother, but you will find that it is more fuel efficient as well. This is the same concept of servicing your HVAC regularly. It will be more efficient, which, in turn, makes it cheaper to operate.

Regular Servicing Adds to the Lifespan

Let’s look yet again at the vehicle you drive daily to work. You may notice grinding and squeaking in the wheels, which is a pretty good indication that the ball joints need to be greased. Unless you take care of that instantly upon noticing the problem, you could encounter much more expensive repairs. 

In the case of your vehicle, if the ball joints become worn, you could experience catastrophic failure, which could, in turn, lead to the coming apart of your front suspension. This would lead to loss of control and if you happen to be on a highway at 70mph, your life and the lives of any passengers could be in grave danger. While failing to grease moving parts on an HVAC unit wouldn’t be quite as catastrophic, it could lead to systemic failures, requiring a whole new unit.

Extended Lifespan of Your Unit

Regular maintenance of your HVAC unit can also extend its lifespan by many years. It is said that the average lifespan of an HVAC unit is anywhere from 10 to 15 years, by contracting regular maintenance you could extend that by as many as another 5 to 10 years. Who wouldn’t like to avoid a major expense that is easily accomplished by adding years to the unit you already have?

However, it should also be noted that a thorough inspection should be conducted annually, at a very minimum. While your HVAC maintenance service provider may come out monthly to change filters to keep incoming air fresh and clean, you may have only contracted an annual inspection. That may be sufficient but in terms of a commercial unit or one that is used around the clock 24/7 throughout the entire year, a biannual inspection is highly recommended.

Safety and Comfort

Have you ever gone away for the Christmas holidays, only to return to a home that is frozen solid with almost as many ice crystals inside as out? It seems like Murphy’s Law never fails and it is just when no one will be in the home, your unit decides to fail. Even though you’ve reduced the thermostat to 68° Fahrenheit, or lower, your HVAC unit completely failed so that temperatures inside were only a few degrees warmer than the outside world.

Thankfully, it didn’t result in a fire, but the cost of replacing everything damaged by frost was beyond acceptable. Also, your creature comfort can be assured when you have a well-maintained HVAC system, so you won’t need to wait days for a service tech to get out. While there are reliable companies that will send a tech out immediately, even a few hours in ultra-cold temperatures can be unbearable.

If ever there were any reasons to keep your unit well-maintained and serviced regularly, these are among the most important. Don’t let your unit go without being serviced and maintained regularly because, in the end, you are the one who will suffer.

Oldest Businesses/Venues in Second Life- Why Are They So Successful? – Camury Reporting

Second Life has an active economy and a large exchange movement with the use of their domestic currency, the Linden dollar (L$). Lindens can be used to buy, sell, rent or make land trade or purchase and sale of goods and services among users.
Second life residents perform thousands of virtual transactions per day. Those include the purchase of buildings, vehicles, equipment of all kinds, animations, clothing, skin, hair, jewelry, plants, pets, and works of art. Residents can also profit from the rent of land or real estate. Many survive by offering a wide range of services. Those services include "camping", wage labor, business management, entertainment and creation of custom content (which can be divided into six categories: building, texturing, scripting, animation, art direction, as well as the position of producer / financier from the project)
Some residents can have great success in their investments in the virtual world, selling virtual goods or providing services. Business owners with a good marketing strategy can even keep their business running for a long time.

Here are some examples of successful businesses in Second Life:

Everyone wants to keep their avatars up to date with the current fashion trends. To meet the high demand for fashion items, SL has more a large variety stores that provide a huge range of products.

The Designer Circle is a bi-weekly fashion event since 2010. It is a platform for SL designers that offers, for a limited time, several items from each designer. The secret of their success this in addition to their marketing strategy is the affordable price of the products- between 50L- 100L, combined with the quality of products and the latest trends in fashion and clothing.

 Old Lar's House was established in 2009, evolving into Old Lar's Warehouse, and now, Old Lar's Naughty Twinz. It has become a popular club in Second Life. The secret of its success is the unique energetic atmosphere, provided by the beautiful and sexy dancers. They offer visitors exquisite eye-candy for customers and remove items of clothing-often with lusciously written text for tips. The club also features live DJs 24/7 who play the best mix of rock and other genres for all tastes.

Skin & Shape
Established in 2005, Adam n Eve offers a wide selection of male and female skins as well as hair, and Fashion. Attentive to the needs of the market, which is essential for business success, the store creates mesh avatars (head and body), with good quality and competitive prices. The product, price and attractiveness, are the magic ingredients for the store’s continued success in Second Life for many years.

Starting in Second Life in 2011, Humanoid is a project of talented German artists and media professionals who use technology to give movement to the Second Life avatars.
The secret of the success of this project is precisely the creativity, innovation and the use of advanced technology to offer a high quality product, satisfying the demand of the consumer market in Second Life.

Freebie Spot
I was in second life since 2007, searching for freebies and Freebie Galaxy was there. This Store is a mega complex of freebies that has fifteen floors! The secret of its success, especially among newcomers to the SL, is quality and quantity with more than 3,000 freebies and dollarbies items of good quality that are offered to SL new residents looking for free things to have fun and upgrade their look.

Currently, in addition to a good product or service, businesses need to have a good marketing plan, promote themselves in the media, social networks and blogs is the key to success. This has fundamental importance for those who want to be prosperous in SL and last in such a competitive atmosphere.

M&M Marketing: Offering Businesses Owner A Helping Hand- Definate Balfour Reporting…

M&M Marketing help business owners get more exposure, this is extremely helpful when you, the business owner, are not sure which avenue to take or even names of professionals  to contact for help. In a  virtual world where networking is key and so little are willing to help outside of their immediate friends, marketing can be hard to do unless you are  a driven person and not willing to take no for an answer.  It’s nice to know that there is a company willing to work hand and hand with you, so I wanted to share M&M Marketing with SLE readers.

I found myself at a beautiful home and headquarters of M&M Marketing. Mark Ussy greeted me warmly and after finding a nice spot at his meeting table we began our conversation about him, his company, and what it can do for those interested in his services.

May 2011 saw the entry of another fiction. The only thing different about it was that this book was a test subject for some marketing experiments. The results were staggering. This was done with minimal to no cost using skills easily obtained from online tutorials. This book is a must have tool for today’s indie authors to promote their work to a massive audience for a minimal cost.
