Columbus Ohio Air Conditioner Disposal

Summer is nearly upon us and if last year is any indication it’s going to be another scorcher. Will your old air conditioner be up to the challenge of keeping you cool? If it’s time for a new model then you know just the type of AC unit to swap out. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t rethink you’re cooling scheme.

One of the most popular types of air conditioners is a portable unit that can easily be rolled from room to room. This is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to cool down an entire home where only one or two rooms are being used. A portable AC is great to park by the kitchen when your oven is going full tilt.

As you go shopping for that new air conditioner you want to pay attention to the label when it comes to the refrigerants. What you want to look for is the eco-friendly R410A refrigerant. The other types aren’t illegal but they are being phased out. Don’t get stuck with a polluter!

When it comes to capacity the following is a good guideline to follow:

  • Small room: 5,000 – 6,000 BTU for 100-300 sq. ft.
  • Medium room: 7,000 – 8,200 BTU for 250-550 sq. ft.
  • Large room: 9,800 to 12,500 BTU’s for 350-950 sq. ft. area.

Now that you have all that info, what will you do with that old AC? This is not something you can put out on the curb and hope someone will take it away. In fact, you might not even be able to lift it without help. Junk King Columbus is standing by to provide that help.

Columbus Ohio Grill Disposal and Recycling

Welcome to the blustery, chilly and downright freezing Ohio winter. The good news is that spring is right around the corner. The bad news is that it’s going to be a lot colder before it gets warm. That doesn’t mean you have to forgo all your warm weather activities. This is especially true with grilling outdoors. Although it might be more of a challenge, nothing could better than a fresh grilled steak or piece of fish. If you want to brave the cold and snow to make an amazing dinner than you’ll want to consider a few helpful winter grilling facts.

Your grilling prep work should be the same as when it’s warm. You’ll want to make your rubs or sauces in large enough batches so you won’t have to run in and out of the house. For great tasting meat and poultry try marinating overnight. You might also want to think about grilling for the week in on single outing. For instance on Sunday you could grill up steaks for fajitas on Monday, chicken for salad on Tuesday etc. That way with a little reheating you can enjoy the scrumptious taste of grilled meat all week long.

Winter grilling should be about keeping it simple. You want to cook recipes that won’t require a lot of fuss or attention when it comes to basting or turning meat. The goal is to get in and get out. You should always have a clear path to your grill. This is especially important if you’ll be grilling after (or during!) a snowstorm. Try not to run back and forth from the grill to your house. Embrace the cold and get the job done without falling! In winter temperatures, that heat is going to be sucked up by the cold so avoid opening and closing the lid every 30 seconds. Let the heat of the grill do its thing. Most importantly, avoid wearing any winter items like scarves which could dangle close to the fire.

If after all this prep work you discover that your grill has seen better days then swap it out. You’ll probably find amazing deals on a new grill at this time of the year. Instead of holding onto the old grill, give Junk King Columbus a call and have them take it away for you. You can’t toss that old grill out on the curb and you don’t want it taking up precious space in your backyard.  In addition, many older grills can be exteremely heavy, rusty, and sharp – you don’t want to risk hurting yourself or damaging your property by trying to haul it off on your own.

One call to Junk King Columbus will have that old grill and all of your other bulky junk items taken away for good.  Replacing your patio furniture?  Remodeling the whole deck?   Junk King will work in any weather to haul off all of your debris and clutter!

Columbus Appliance Disposal and Replacement

Take a moment to think about what you’d like to replace in your home and no, you can’t pick a spouse or kid! Focus more on the kitchen area. This is the heart of your home. How is everything running in there? Is your refrigerator keeping veggies crisp and ice cream frozen? What about the stove? Are the oven temperatures running too hot leading to many a scorched meal? Is your washing machine performing up to its potential? If any of those questions provoked a negative response, then you might just be in the market for a new major kitchen appliance or two. Of course, you’ll also have to consider getting rid of that old appliance as well. Enter your local based Columbus appliance disposal company – Junk King.  Let’s face it; at the very moment you unplug, unhook or otherwise detach an appliance in your kitchen it has become junk.

Most people are quite adept at shopping for the little things in life such as food or clothes. With the bigger ticket items like those major kitchen appliances, you might want to do a bit of internet research. First, visit the brand name sites you’re familiar with. You could end up buying your new appliance directly from them. More importantly is that you’ll get the suggested retail price from those sites. Then the shopping can begin! There might be a few appliance stores in your neck of the woods that are offering the type of replacement machines you’re looking for, but it doesn’t hurt to go a bit outside your comfort zone in search of a bargain. That’s what Google was invented for!

Here’s another tip: go to a big chain store to shop for kitchen appliances, but don’t commit to buying them right away. Instead, write down the model number of the appliance you like best and get right back to the internet. Once you’ve seen what you like up close you can find the best bargain for that item somewhere else online and narrow down your search. Just be aware of added shipping and delivery costs. Some stores offer free delivery which is a bargain.

Now that you’ve got your item all picked out for the best price and have scheduled a delivery day, it’s time to get a hold of that local Columbus appliance disposal crew to schedule the perfect time to get rid of your old appliances. If you plan it just right, you could take out the old in the morning and get the new in the afternoon and all set up in time for dinner.
