Carbon Monoxide Poisoning !!! Copy Copy

Carbon Monoxide is not a good thing to breathe in.  It can cause serious problems and even death!  The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention claims this is the silent killer.  Carbon Monoxide or ‘CO’ as we will call it, is an odorless, colorless gas and it can kill you.   CO can be found in fumes anytime you burn fuel.  Cars, trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, or furnaces.  CO can build up indoors and poison people and animals.

The symptoms are headaches, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pains, and confusion. Everyone is at risk for CO Poisoning.  Infants, the elderly, people with chronic heart issues, anemia or breathing problems are more likely to get sick from CO.  Each year, more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO Poisoning, 20,000 visit emergency room and more than 4,000 are hospitalized.

They’re easy and simple steps and common sense to keep CO poisoning from your home.

Install a battery powered CO alarm.  If you already have one be sure to change the battery when the time changes in spring and in fall.  And replace your alarm at least every five years.  Adam’s Air can install these alarms for you.  Have Adam’s Air check your heating system for you, and have a plumber come out and check your water heater.  Never use open flamed heaters indoors.  Make sure your gas appliances are vented properly.   Have your chimney checked or cleaned every year.  Chimneys can be block by debris.  NEVER use your gas cooktop for heating a home.  And in the cold weather please pull your cars out of the garage when starting them, of course make sure the doors are locked.

 

Adam’s Air offers a free Winterization on your home furnace for home owners.  It is a 20 point inspection and we can tell you anything telling about CO and your system.  Give us a call today, 806-316-1103.

Clogged Condensate Drain Means Problems

You know your condensate drain is clogged when you see water on the floor, or if you are seeing what could be water coming through your ceiling into your home this could cause even more costly problems. You see the drain pulls excess water from your systems and sometimes with our weather and wind and dust the drain will clogged up not only with dirt but it the water sits for a while it could carry mold, mildew and bacteria and mix with the water and dirt. When this happens the drain pan backs up and sometime flows over the top and that’s when you can get water damage.

The best preventive maintenance you can do is call Adams Air at least a couple of times a year so we can perform a Winterazation and Summerazation on your HVAC, to make sure your system is ready for hot and cold weather. We also check your coil and your drain to make sure it is in working order. Call us today to schedule your appointment, at 806-316-1103.

Summer TIme!

 

I always get kind of down come every August, I guess because summer only has a few more weeks. What really kills it for me is the finish of the Tour De France, the bicycle race that last for three weeks during the month of July every year. I love watching it and dreaming one day to be able to climb mountains like those guys, which by the way will never happen.

Summer always meant time off from school when you were a kid, but now being a 62-year-old it seems the days and the years go by faster. Summer for me is just hanging outside and enjoying hot weather. This year has been a hot one too, but I don’t mind. Its summer! The earth is green, flowers are blooming, the sound of lawn mowers, the smell of barbeque, and even better, the eating of the before mention. Summer is when I am most alive, most happy. I am not a winter, cold person. It rattles me. Even when I was a kid winter bothered me. It depresses me into January and February. I look around and everything is in hibernation, maybe that’s what I should be doing. But summer! Summer I love. I love to get out in the early morning hours and just sit and listen. The birds and their sweet song. The dew over flowers and plants and leaves on the tree. The sweet aroma of flowers and all in God’s beauty and creation. I will miss summer as I always do. Enjoy it while you still can.

Summertime
DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince

Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin’ to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
A little bit out of control it’s cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the base and let the alpine blast
Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back ’cause this is summertime
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
School is out and it’s a sort of a buzz
A back then I didn’t really know what it was
But now I see what have of this
The way that people respond to summer madness
The weather is hot and girls are dressing less
And checking out the fellas to tell ’em who’s best
Riding around in your Jeep or your Benzos
Or in your Nissan stting on Lorenzos
Back in Philly we be out in the park
A place called the plateau is where everybody goes
Guys out hunting and girls doing likewise
Honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes
She turn around to see what you beeping at
It’s like the summer’s a natural afradesiac
And with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme
To hit you and get you equipped for the summer time
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
It’s late in the day and I ain’t been on the court yet
Hustle to the mall to get me a short set
Yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
‘Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
The temperature’s about 88
Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
Break to ya crib change your clothes once more
‘Cause you’re invited to a barbeque that’s starting at 4
Sitting with your friends cause y’all remincise
About the days growing up and the first person you kiss
And as I think back makes me wonder how
The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia
All the kids playing out front
Little boys messin’ round with the girls playing double-dutch
While the DJ’s spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family reunion
Then six o’clock rolls around
You just finished wiping your car down
It’s time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout
It looks like a car show
Everybody come lookin’ real fine
Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
Every moment frontin’ and maxin’
Chillin’ in the car they spent all day waxin’
Leanin’ to the side but you can’t spead through
Two miles an hour so everybody sees you
There’s an air of love and of happiness
And this is the Fresh Prince’s new defintion’ of summer madness
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
Summer summer summertime
Time to sit back and unwind
