Having worked as a building supervisor for a couple of buildings, I had a wealth of experience in determining the most efficient Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit for an entire lake house block.
Several tenants had been complaining of disturbed indoor comfort whenever there were power outages. These power outages lasted for afternoons occasionally plus this meant the tenants would stay without chilly while in Winter or perspiring themselves dry while in the Summer months. The tenants understood that the power outages were beyond our control but it was also their right to receive adequate heating services. I consulted a local business on the best Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit for such a situation to which she commanded the dual fuel system. This unit worked by using 2 fuels, commonly an electric furnace plus a gas furnace. Tenants could switch between the fuels. At a subsidized rate, the business also installed fireplaces in the apartments. These had to be gas fireplaces since there was an available gas pipe running through the building. Another fortune of this unit was that it did not need any vents, it was a ductless heat pump. This eliminated the hustle of having vents snaking through the building. The heat pump install was fairly affordable plus the central heating was placed in the backyard of the complex. For quality heating, the heating professional partitioned the entire complex into zone control regions. This ensured that each apartment, regardless of where it was located, loved moderate temperatures. I circulated pamphlets that listed many energy saving tips to each tenant. A month down the line, the tenants’ feedback was undoubtedly positive. Though the power outages continued all throughout the winter, all the tenant’s indoor comfort was not affected. This resulted in many positive reviews on our lake house complex.
