How Do Technicians Install An Air-conditioner?

Do you ever wonder how air condition systems repairman or technician repairs and installs your air-condition? Of course, just like professional locksmiths or plumbers they do have a lot of training and experiences and these are what make them great technicians. It may be hard for other people to understand the parts of the air-conditioning but for these technicians, every little part of the air-condition is very important and contributes to the whole of an air-conditioning unit.

These technicians play an important role in the lives of many people in different kinds of industry. Also, they are very important because they install and repair the machine that lessens the stress of people, especially on hot days. These air-condition technicians are trained to identify the problem, repair, install and do the maintenance check-up. Thus from there, they know what your air-condition needs to have. One of the basic roles these technicians do is to install air-conditioning units to every household and companies. So how do they install this kind of unit?

  1. First you should know where to put up or install the air-condition unit in your place, so that by the time your technician comes, it will be easier for them to install.
  2. Technicians would check if it is the right area for the air-condition unit to be installed because they will check if there are any outlet if not then you can always have the extension cord.
  3. They measure the size of window and the size of the air-condition unit if it fits, because not all types of air condition fits a window and that there are also different kinds of air-condition  units in the market.
  4. They do follow the manufacturer’s guide as to where the unit should be positioned in order to have a proper condensation.
  5. If the window set-up is already good then they already begin to put or insert the air condition to the window and make sure that it is balanced and fits it case.
  6. In order not to have the air-condition unit moved, these technicians puts top and bottom sash for proper fit. They fasten the brackets that in order not to keep from moving.
  7. If air-condition unit is properly put inside and fit then it is time to seal by having boards or calk around the unit.
  8. The outlet installed near the unit already and make sure that this is for the air-condition unit only. Air-condition unit consumes a lot of power and that is why it needs to have a solo outlet.

Thus you see the installation of the air condition would take about half a day or for some a whole day and that would depend on the area; type and how many air-condition units are to be installed. So better make sure that you do check and clean your air-conditioning unit 2 times a year in order to have your units last for a long period of time. Perhaps you can also have another unit installed in another part of your homes or offices.

What is the North River Watershed?

The North River Watershed (Watershed Boundary Dataset 03160112) drains an area of about 1,110 km2 in Fayette and Tuscaloosa Counties and is a major tributary of the Black Warrior River. It joins the Black Warrior River at the Fall Line near Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The North River’s water quality use classification is Fish and Wildlife. A 43.48 mile segment of the North

River has been identified on the 1998 ‐ 2008 CWA Section 303(d) lists for nutrient, siltation, and habitat alteration impairments. The source of impairments is listed as aba ndoned surface mining. The 2010 Section 303(d) list identifies both the North River and Lake Tuscaloosa as being impaired by atmospheric mercury deposition. A 1998 Watershed Assessment conducted by the Tuscaloosa Soil and Water Conservation District (TC‐SWCD)

Advisory Committee ranked the North River as their number one
priority impaired subwatershed (Hydrologic Unit Code 03160112‐204). A subsequent county wide assessment conducted in 2007 by the TC‐SWCD estimated that 93,600 tons of soils were eroding each year. Erosion from forest harvesting and streambank degradation was identified as primary contributors to in‐stream sedimentation.

History of North River Watershed

The Plan is a useful watershed management tool designed to identify water-quality problems, issues, and concerns; on-going and future restoration activities, projects, and programs; partners and funding sources; and private sector education and outreach needs.

It is also expected to present sensible strategies to protect, maintain, or improve surface water-quality; protect drinking water; manage non point source polluted runoff; benefit human health and quality of life; protect threatened and endangered species, and enhance environmental awareness for citizens who live, visit, or recreate in the North River watershed. The Plan is expected to be implemented as expeditiously as possible as funding is allocated. The Plan will address many priorities including: watershed-based planning, protection, and restoration; best management practices; education and outreach technical assistance; and institutionalization of the Alabama NPS Management Program. It is expected to increase local environmental awareness by providing opportunities, inspiration, and motivation for partnering among many and varied public and private sectors. It also supports environmental stewardship through watershed planning and implementation efforts of the Alabama Clean Water Partnership. Improvements in water-quality are expected to be realized as citizen awareness is increased, stakeholders become more engaged in watershed-based decision-making processes, and as the watershed plan is implemented.

Improve Water-quality
It is the goal of this Plan to make recommendations which assist in bringing all water-quality parameters within State water-quality standards for Fish & Wildlife as identified in Chapter 335-6-10 of the Alabama Code. This Plan seeks to implement environmentally protective and economically realistic recommendations where practicable and
technologically feasible in order to meet or exceed water-quality standards. BMP types and numbers in this plan are recommendations – but are based on recent studies from credible sources, current land use practices, and watershed activities. Voluntary, incentive-based approaches will be used to implement recommendations throughout the watershed. Providing opportunities for local stakeholder input and participation will continue to be a critical implementation component.
