I travel a lot for work and sometimes I am required to stay for at least a month or more.
- I am frugal and self-employed so whenever I can get a good deal, I immediately take advantage.
Last winter I traveled out of state and had to stay away for about 6 weeks in a very affordable BNB. The BNB was properly furnished but there was one problem, there seemed to be no heated water and when it was available, it was only in the mornings. It had a boiler installed but the heating technicians kept on being called to do boiler repairs ever so often. During the period I was there, the heating dealer was contacted approximately 5 times. Each month there always seemed to be something wrong with the gas furnace. We started chatting with the manager and I advised him to get a geo heat pump from the heating business. Since I clearly knew more about heating than the manager, I advised that the new HVAC would provide quality heating to all the guests. The heating dealer had advised me that the quality HVAC equipment would require little to no heater maintenance. This would be ideal as the guests had started to complain about the inconveniences caused by the frequent visit by the servicemen. The BNB was using an outdated dial regulator so I recommended to the manager to upgrade to a wifi thermostat, as it would allow guests to adjust the temperature just by using their voice. The manager at the BNB was very receptive to my suggestions and recommendations and so I saw it fit to leave him the contacts of the homeowner solutions business that would assist in the replacement of the problematic system.
