Heating and air conditioning during weddings

Wedding planners have to deal with many different aspects of planning a successful wedding reception. However, one key aspect that often goes overlooked is the HVAC equipment in the wedding venue itself. Is it large and powerful enough to properly cool the room, once it is filled with hundreds of guests? Has the HVAC system been properly maintained each and every year since it was installed? Who has been doing this preventative maintenance? Is it just some goofball who knows nothing about the technical workings of heaters and air conditioners? Or, is it a NATE-certified service technician from one of the best local heating and cooling firms in the area? Have the air filters been changed regularly to keep the quality of the air smelling sweet and free from dust and other types of debris? This is important because poor air quality can cause problems with guests who suffer from asthma or allergies. If they have breathing difficulties they may cough or sneeze during the wedding ceremony. This can ruin the moment and show up on the videotape. It is also imperative that the temperature in that room not get above 76 degrees. People dressed up in heavy suits and tuxedos cannot handle being overheated in fancy clothes. It can cause arguments and fights. The thermostat needs to be serviced regularly to make sure it is reading and functioning as intended by the manufacturer of the HVAC system. Guaranteeing a properly operating air conditioning system is at least as important as choosing the right wedding band. Trust me!

Weddings and the heating/cooling

Planning a wedding? Then you’d better make sure the place you plan to have the reception has a working air conditioner that is capable of cooling down a room of that size. Too many venues skimp on their HVAC system. They go for the cheapest option and then they hope for the best. You have to make sure that not only has their heating and cooling unit been properly serviced and maintained over the years, that they actually had one properly designed and installed to begin with. An HVAC system that is too small for a room that is meant to hold more than 100 people at a reception can cause disaster. They will be all dressed up and ready to dance and be merry, only to discover they are hot, sweaty and perturbed. When folks are overheated because the air conditioning cannot keep the temperature in the room at a reasonable level, fights between relatives and friends can break out. No one wants a fight at their wedding – except maybe Walker, Texas Ranger. So, ask the venue if they have had a certified HVAC technician from a reliable and well-regarded local firm inspect their heating and cooling system. Make them show proof of this. You also want to make sure the air quality is crisp and clean. No one wants stinky air at their wedding reception. Except maybe Walker, Texas Ranger. He could beat up the service technician who did not keep the HVAC equipment operating at its full potential and energy efficiency. Or he could just kick your uncle Joe in the face.

Wedding and the HVAC

What is the most important thing to search for when planning a wedding? Is it the right band or the right minister? No, it is the right venue. And what is one of the most overlooked aspects of choosing the right venue for your wedding? The climate control in the room. That’s right, if you have a wedding venue that does not have a properly maintained HVAC system, you can wind up with a disaster on your wedding day. That is because there is the potential for the heating and cooling to fail and not keep your guests comfortable. If the thermostat is set for 68 degrees, but the thermometer shows that it is 79 degrees in the room, everyone will be miserable. Your will have relatives in three piece suits and tuxedos and thick, ruffled party dresses begging to open a window or a door to let cool air in from outside. They will be sweating and agitated. So will the bride and the groom! And guess what, a room that is too hot or moist will show up in the wedding pictures. There will be sweat stains on dresses, sour looks on faces of family and friends. You will never forget that day, and you will wish you had inquired ahead of time to see if the venue had kept up the HVAC manufacturer’s recommended service schedule. If they have not had their vents and ducts cleaned, and the coolant refilled in their AC unit, there could be a disaster. Make sure the heating and cooling of your wedding day is foremost in your planning!

HVAC at the Wedding

When you are planning a wedding, you have to take so many things into account. You have to think about who to invite and where to seat them. You have to consider what the best venue is for the ceremony. That is easier if you are a church attendee because that question is already answered for you, but then you also have to have a place for the reception. You have to get flowers, food, decorations, groomsmen and maids, and so many other little details. The most important thing at the reception, though, is that there is a powerful heating and cooling system. Without a strong HVAC unit, no one will enjoy your wedding ceremony or the reception. I think it’s especially important at the reception because people will be drinking and dancing, and that means they will be hot. You simply must have air conditioning so your family and friends will be comfortable and not get all sweaty and stinky in their fancy clothes. I think a lot of brides and grooms don’t give a second thought to the HVAC system when they are looking for a venue, but they really should. It does not hurt to ask just to make sure that the building’s air conditioning system is efficient enough to handle a large crowd of people who will need to have the temperature set low. Nothing will ruin your wedding faster than a bad HVAC system because people will become irritable and all those relatives that don’t really like each other will get in fights. While hunting the perfect scenery for your vows and party, don’t forget to ensure the air conditioning will be adequate.

Cleaning the ducts

It’s common for most homeowners to overlook their ducting, when Springtime cleaning. It is just natural not to worry about cleaning dirt or debris when you can’t see it, and they are also very taxing to disinfect, without special equipment. While duct cleaning services can be expensive, it is not advised to do it on your own; Duct cleaning services use special tools to get through all the ductwork in your home. Although it can be expensive, there are multiple benefits that easily outweigh the cost. Having a ventilation cleaning service appointment, improves the efficiency of your HVAC, and that will save you money. There may be health risks associated with such things as mold, fungus or insects in your air ducts. Clean air ducts will improve the quality of the air in your home, so your family can breathe easier. A great way to keep your ducts clean and clear of dirt and grime, is to change out your air filters once per month. These filters capture a big percentage of the dust that accumulates in your HVAC system. An electrostatic filter is even better at collecting these minute particles, as well as allergens. Many duct cleaning services offer to use an anti-microbial spray to kill mold, as well as fungi. While ventilation ducts are a perfect environment for growing mold and fungus, unless you have a respiratory ailment, or allergies, it might never affect you. Most of these commercial sprays are deemed safe, but if you have young children or are at risk for respiratory conditions, you should consult with a doctor, before spraying for mold and fungi.heater-parts

Broken A/C problems

I hate having cravings as a pregnant woman. I know I am having these cravings because the baby wants certain foods (even though I do not know how much I really believe that). I try to resist some of these cravings, but it’s pointless. I sent my fiance to the store to get some ice cream yesterday. While he was at the store I noticed a shockingly loud noise. I even heard it over the noise of the television. I followed the loud noise and I found that it was coming from the Heating, Ventilation & A/C device outside. I rang my fiance immediately; I asked him what to do. I turned off the HVAC system as quickly as I could manage, plus called an Heating, Ventilation & A/C serviceman. I needed to make an appointment in order for them to look at the system. I panicked because I did not quite know what to do. Now, I knew I would be seriously uncomfortable without a working air conditioner in the house. This pregnancy has made very anxious, but luckily, the Heating, Ventilation & A/C serviceman had a chance to come to the home right away. He found that the front fan blade had come loose. It was banging against the other parts within the unit. The entire fan was going to have to be substituted. He wasn’t sure yet if there would need to be other replacement parts needed due to any extra disfigurement– I was going to pay for anything, though. I was pregnant and grumpy. As soon as I felt the air conditioning come back on, I was a cheery pregnant lady again! For those of you who might relate, you know what I’m saying here. I was so, so thankful for the Heating, Ventilation & A/C serviceman.

I’m pregnant and just want temperature control

It is not fun to have cravings when you are pregnant. I am craving things that the baby allegedly wants, but the foods make no sense to me. I sent my hubby to the store for some tofu and ice cream the other night. While he was at the store I observed a legitimately loud noise. I even heard it over the noise of the drama on television. I followed the source of the noise and found it was coming from the Heating and Air Conditioning unit outdoors. I called the hubby immediately and asked him what he recommended I do. I turned off the system swiftly and called an Heating and Air Conditioning specialist. I tried to make an appointment for them to look at the system. I wanted them to come right away! I knew I needed a working air conditioner in the house. This pregnancy was making me warm and anxious; luckily, the Heating and Air Conditioning specialist had a chance and came to the house immediately, and he found that the front fan blade in the unit was very loose. It was hitting the other parts inside the unit. The whole entire fan was going to have to be updated. He told me he wasn’t sure if we wanted to pay for the entire upgrade, but I was going to spend money for anything. I was pregnant and wanted it done! As soon as I felt the air conditioner turn back on, I was an ecstatic pregnant lady again. For those who can relate, you probably know exactly what I am talking about. I was so happy and thankful for the Heating and Air Conditioning specialist.

When your pregnant you need air conditioning

Having cravings as a pregnant mom is no fun. All of these cravings are things that I want. I am told that it is really what the baby wants… I do not know how much I really believe that. I try to resist some of these cravings even though I couldn’t any longer. I sent my trusty partner out to the store. While he was at the store, there was a huge noise outside. I even heard it over the TV’s volume. I searched for the source of the noise, and found that it was coming from the Heating plus Air Conditioning device outdoors. I called my partner and in a panic I asked him what to do. I turned off the system as quickly as I could. I then called a Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist. I did have to make an appointment for them to even take a look at the system. Of course, I made the appointment because I knew I would be extremely uncomfortable without having any sort of air conditioner in the house. This pregnancy has made me always feel so warm! Luckily, the Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist had a reason to come to the house immediately. When he was looking at the unit, he found that the front fan blade in the device had come loose. It was whacking the other parts of the unit. The entire fan was going to have to be replaced. He was unsure ultimately if there would need to be other replacements due to extra disfigurement. I was going to pay for any repairs he recommended, because I was pregnant and overheated. As soon as I felt the air conditioner come on again, I was thrilled. For those of you who might relate, you better believe what I am talking about. I was so incredibly glad for the Heating plus Air Conditioning specialist.air-duct

Our broken fan blade

Experiencing cravings as a pregnant lady sucks. I guess I am having these awful cravings because they seem to be cravings of things that I want. Doctors say that the cravings reflect what the baby wants, but I’m not sure how much I truly believe that. I try to resist the cravings, but at one point I could no longer resist. I sent my wife swiftly to the store. While she was at the grocery store, I overheard a loud noise. I even heard the commotion over the sound of the television. I followed the noise: I found that it was coming from the HVAC unit outside. I called my wife immediately on her cell and inquired as to what she thought I should do. I turned off the program as quickly as I could. Then I called an HVAC specialist. I made an appointment for them to take a look at the system. Now, I am going to be severely uncomfortable without a/c in the house. This pregnancy has made my body feel so warm. Luckily, the HVAC specialist had an chance to get to the house instantly; she found that the front fan blade in the unit had come loose. It was hitting against the other parts within the unit. The fan was going to have to be upgraded. She was unsure if there would need to be other upgrades due to any extra disruption. I was going to pay for whatever she required, though, because I was not going to suffer while pregnant. As I felt the a/c come back on, I was a happy pregnant lady again; for those of you who can relate, you probably have some idea what I am talking about. I was so grateful for the HVAC specialist.
