It’s been a real scorcher this summer. In fact, it’s the hottest summer (so far) since they’ve been keeping records. With the rising temperatures will come an increase in air conditioning use. If you’re “power driving” your AC you might discover that it’s not performing as it should be. The fault might be in the age of that unit. Like any other type of appliance, an AC that is running 24/7 is simply going to wear down. If you’re considering buying a new model you might want to consider these helpful shopping tips:
Is this the right time to buy an AC? Actually, we’re at the peak of the summer where air conditioners are fetching a premium price. If you can hold out for a couple more weeks you might find a better bargain as retailers are looking to clear out the showrooms of their “summer stuff.” That’s when the discounts will really kick in. But if your AC is on the fritz, you might not have a choice to wait.
If you’re replacing a particular type of AC unit then it is easy to decide which type to buy. However, you might take a moment to consider all your options. For instance, many homeowners without central air have window units but there are also portable units that can be moved from room to room. This is a decent option when you want to conserve energy and save on your electric bills. Why cool off the whole house when you’re just using two rooms?
You’ll also want to check out all the improvements in AC design such as adjustable thermostats, variable cooling and fan speeds. Some units have an energy efficient setting that will shut down the fan when the unit has achieved its desired cooling temperature. Your new AC should also have an adjustable vent which will allow you to direct the cool air and an easy to remove filer for hassle free cleaning.
Make sure your new AC will be EnergyStar rated. That will guarantee the unit will be operating at peak efficiency which will translate into energy savings for you. The higher the number of cooling capacity or BTUs the more powerful the unit will be but think about room size. For a 150 square feet room you really only need around 5,000 BTU/Hour unit.
After factoring in all those “factors” you’ll be ready to head off to the store to begin shopping in earnest but don’t forget about one of the most important factors and that would be getting rid of the old AC. You’re not going to be able to throw out your AC in the trash. Instead, call up Junk King KC and let them take away that AC to dispose of it properly. While they’re at it, Junk King can also make a clean sweep of your basement, garage or closet to cart away all kinds of junk you want to get rid of. You’ll find yourself cooling off a lot better in a house free of junk!
Are you a good bargain hunter? One of the things that most savvy shoppers look for is a sale price. Whether they’re buying milk, a car or a new sofa there’ll always be enticed with advertisements of discounts. Around the Kansas City area there are plenty of bargains to be had on all sorts of goods and services; you just have to know where to look for them.
Thanks to the Internet it easier than ever to find a coupon for just about anything. That’s why if you plan on going out shopping groceries or school supplies do a quick search on the Internet for what you’re looking for and you might find some printable coupons that will help save you big bucks.
Even with all the bargains to be had around Kansas City there are still some businesses that have built in discounts. In other words they don’t have to go out of their way present a special bargain because every day is a bargain. One such business that operates under this bargain principle is Junk King Kansas City.
Junk King is part of a national franchise of junk specialists. Because they are part of a national franchise the way the decide on prices are dictated by headquarters. You know you aren’t getting ripped off when you’re working with a national franchise with an established reputation. What’s great is that price is based on truck space and not workers hours.
Here’s how it works: when you’ve got junk you’re ready to remove give Junk King call and set up an appointment for a supervisor to come to your home and assess the junk pile. They’ll figure out how much space on the truck will be needed to haul away all that junk. Based on that will provide you with a written estimate. There are no hidden fees, no surprises and no extra charges. If it takes one hour or four hours for the Junk King crew to remove your stuff the price will remain the same. The only way that estimate will change is if what is loaded on the truck is actually less than what was figured out the first place. When that happens you’ll actually end up paying less.
If you have ever been burned by so-called professional movers who add on extra hours travel time and lunch breaks then you know what a benefit is not to be charged an hourly rate for this kind of labor intensive job. The Junk King Kansas City crews will be completely professional and not engaged in any shenanigans. This is really the best and most affordable way to get rid of all of your junk once and for all. That’s gonna be a bargain in anyone’s book!
When it comes to taking care of the tasks in our lives we have two options: do it yourself or hire a professional. Sometimes a DIY project can be a lot of fun like hanging Christmas lights or painting a kid’s room. For more “intense” projects like a clogged drain or leak in the roof we call in the professionals. It obviously costs a bit more than a DIY project, but we can rest assured that when we hire a professional with a solid reputation they will get the job done right. The approach you take to hauling away the junk in your Kansas City home should be no different. Do you want to do it yourself or hire a professional company like Junk King Kansas City?
Let’s be honest, if you really could do it yourself that junk would already be gone. This has less to do with your abilities than the practical elements of the situation. Suppose you have some old kitchen appliances that have been recently replaced. Now, that old fridge is just sitting in the garage taking up space. You can’t just throw these items in the back of the family car and drive them off to the dump. First of all your car probably isn’t big enough and you wouldn’t want it all scratched up. Secondly, would you even know where the right dump is located? Suppose you have a lot of junk that needs to be hauled away. Do you want to make several trips on your day off? And finally, do you have the manpower to move these heavy items? When you add it up, it makes sense for you to call in Junk King to handle your Kansas City junk removal.
One call to your local Kansas City Junk King franchise and you will have a team supervisor sent out to your home or business to provide you with a free on site estimate based on how much room your junk takes up in their truck. After that, simply point to the junk you want removed and the pros will haul it away.
In addition, Junk King also can provide a valuable professional service for your Kansas City business. Just like in your home, your office or work environment has a habit of gathering junk. Most offices have access to a dumpster for their trash, but once again what about those bigger items like office furniture, tables and desks? How about all those boxes of discarded files or products that need to be tossed out. Junk King to the rescue!
