You can ask any business to supply proof of basic liability contractor insurance coverage. Any company that is not ready to provide proof of basic liability (GL) insurance need to be avoided. A minimum standard for GL insurance is $1 million for property work and $2 million for light business.
There are other methods for investigating cooling, heating and ventilation business such as: contact your regional Better Business Bereau (BBB), carry out online searches and evaluations and ask the company in concern for references. Nevertheless, all these methods fall short of thorough openness. The BBB actually works for the companies it represents as they are just rated if the company in question pays them a recurring fee. Online review websites rarely display all of the evaluations received, and post evaluations from sources that are not always reliable. This supplies a platform for companies to post their own evaluations and individuals to hastily publish reviews without the company in question's capability to expertly resolve the concern. Moreover, no company would provide an unfavorable reference; just those that are very favorable. None of these are ideal characteristics for consumers seeking totally impartial reviews and references. It is encouraged to utilize these methods as an educated customer and consider the details source for what it is worth.
Among the finest methods to find a brand-new a/c, heating and ventilation specialist is via the "word-of-mouth" technique.

Excellent business use the word-of-mouth technique to continually offer a new client stream by keeping their customers pleased.
Other conventional methods for discovering a new cooling, heating and ventilation professional consist of carrying out online searches, phone book directory sites or online directory sites and other advertisement mediums. Keep in mind that all of these techniques are purchased and spent for by the companies in concern. None of these methods should work as a testimonial and must be utilized only as locating sources.
3rd party providers such as Angie's list, Find Regional and other online companies are the newest platforms for sourcing and rating air conditioning, heating and aerating companies. Although these business do supply a service with some merit, they are, in fact, adding cost to the customer. Angie's List, as well as some other online organisation directory sites, charge the client directly for their scores and business' contact information. Other third-party websites provide consumers with air conditioning, heating and ventilation companies and include the expense of being a middle-man to the business formula. Remember that none of these are "free" and that consumers should understand the expense and worth of using entities like these.
Numerous quotes are recommend when hiring an a/c and heating contractor. There are no industry requirements for rates HEATING AND COOLING associated product or service. Similar jobs can differ countless dollars from one business to the next. A minimum of three estimates is suggested prior to the repair or replacement of any significant air conditioning and or heating unit component and prior to the design and installation of brand-new systems.
A consultation can be of worth if the repair or replacement is pricey. Not all technicians or business are equal or trustworthy. Fixing a/c and heating unit is very intricate. It is not unusual for a repair work specialist to be unable to separate the problem or for a representative to recommend an unneeded purchases. Contacting a competing a/c and heating business can conserve time and loan and regret.

Frequently Asked Questions:
I Just Got A Guinea Pig Today As A Surprise. Any Care Tips?
Alright, So A In November, My Beloved Pet Hamster, Oreo, Passed Away. I Was Really Sad, Although I Knew It Was Coming.
I'Ll Never 'Get Over' Her Death As Most People Say To. But, Now I'M Okay With It, And When I Think Of Her, I Remember Her With Love, Not Tears.
Anyway, My Mother Saw That I Was Okay. So I Guess She Got In Contact With A Guinea Pig Breeder (She'S Humane, Don'T Worry). And It Turns Out, The Mommy Pig Had Her Litter And They Were Old Enough For Adoption.
So My Mother Took Me And My Brother Today And Said She Had A Surprise For Us. I Honestly Had No Clue What Was Going On. She Drove Us To The Breeder'S Home And Let Us Each Pick A Pig Out. My Brother Picked A Black And White One And Named Her Trixie. I Got A Brown And White One And Named Her Puffle.
I Am Absolutely Thrilled! I Can'T Believe It, And I'Ve Already Fallen In Love With Puffle.
So Anyway, We Took The Pigs Home In A Big Cardboard Box With Bedding In The Bottom. The Breeder Gave Us A Humongous Bag Of Bedding And On The Way Home We Got Guinea Pig Food (A Brand The Breeder Recommended) From The Store.
We Set Up The Cage And Put Them In. We Have Them In A Big Glass Aquarium. It Is Such An Exciting Day!
I Researched Care Tips Online Today And Made A List Of The Foods That Guinea Pigs Can'T Eat, And I'M Going To The Library Tomorrow To Check Out Some Books On Guinea Pig Care.
Any Extra Tips? Advice? Funny Stories About Your Guinea Pig?
There are too many care tips I could list here, so here are three great websites to look over for any new guinea pig owner (I like these better than most guide books, many of these can be out of date or inaccurate):
You can join the forum in the first link and read about tips/stories from other guinea pig owners.
To answer the additional detail questions:
1.) I'm guessing this is in response to the air conditioner comment, you want to keep them away from any drafts to avoid a URI (upper respiratory infection). A towel or blanket over the cage at night may help if your house gets really cold at night during the winter though. They actually do better in cold than heat, they can get heat stroke at temperatures around 85 degrees so try to keep them in areas that are 65-75 degrees.
2.) You should give them unlimited hay at all times, this is the best way to wear down their teeth (which are open rooted so they continuously grow). Hay will wear down both the incisors and molars, unlike chew toys (which can be for fun if you'd like) that only wear down the front teeth. Hay should make up about 75% of their diet.

IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS...
If the landlord won’t make repairs needed to protect your
health, safety or security and you follow the procedures
required by law, you may be entitled to:
• End the lease;
• Have the problem repaired and deduct the cost of the
repair from the rent or
• File suit to force the landlord to make the repairs.
You MUST Follow These Steps:
1. Send the landlord a dated letter by certified mail, returnreceipt
requested, or by registered mail, outlining
the needed repairs. You may also deliver the letter in
person. Keep a copy of the letter. Be sure that your rent
is current when the notice is received.
2. Your landlord should make a diligent effort to repair the
problem within a reasonable time after receipt of the
notice. The law presumes seven days to be a reasonable
time, but the landlord can rebut this presumption. If the
landlord has not made a diligent effort to complete the
repair within seven days and you did not have the first
notice letter delivered to your landlord via certified mail,
return receipt requested, or via registered mail, send a
second notice letter regarding the needed repairs.
3. If the landlord still has not made diligent efforts to
repair the problem within a reasonable time after
receipt of the notice letter sent by certified mail, return
receipt requested, or by registered mail, you may be
entitled to terminate the lease, repair the problem and
deduct the cost from your rent or get a court to order
that the repairs be made. You should consult with an
attorney before taking any of these actions.
Under Texas law, it is illegal for a landlord to retaliate
against you for complaining in good faith about necessary
repairs for a period of six months from the date you made
such a complaint. Of course, you can always be evicted if
you fail to pay your rent on time, threaten the safety of the
landlord or intentionally damage the property. You do not
have a right to withhold rent because the landlord fails
to make repairs when the condition needing repair does
not materially affect your health and safety. If you try this
method, the landlord may file suit against you.
Heat Wave + No Air Conditioning = Hot Cat?
Live In The Bay Area - Heat Wave Until Thursday With Temps Reaching 104 F. We Dont Have Air Conditioning (Tile Floors And Fans). I'M Worried About My Cat Overheating. I Put Ice Cubes In His Water To Keep It Cool And Him Hydrated. What Else Can I Do?
hi baybz. I just came through those four days of 113F. My cat fared better than i did! Put a bowl of ice cubes in front of a slowly rotating fan and place it in front of kitty.
Also the frozen peas held to his body (Yeah that was me).
Take a large ziploc freezer bag, fill it with sufficient water to create a blanket, put it in the freezer preferably wrapped around a loaf of bread or something to give it a circular shape. in other words an ice blanket.
Following the recent really bad heat wave i purchased a room air conditioner that plugs into the wall and can easily be moved from room to room. $300.00 because I promised my little Chloe that she would NEVER have to go through anything so awful again. Worth every dime.
Thank You Dear for being such a loving parent.
Can Animal Give Me Sad Dog Animal Abuse Stories And They'Re Recovery Stories? Also What Is Wrong With Puppy?
Mills? Don'T Link Me To Places Please I Prefer Just Typed Out Answers..And Does Anyone Have Some Horror Stories About Buying A Dog From A Petshop?
I don't know that there is a standard definition of a puppy mill, but so far as I see it, anyone who breeds dogs with profit as their main motivation is one of two things - a BYB or a puppy mill. Which they are depends on scale.
Here are some facts on some of the worst puppy mills out there -
Puppy mills are breeding solely for profit, and as such, care very little about the health and welfare of their dogs, as vet treatment and adequate housing and care would cut into their profits.
B*tches and puppies are crammed into cages - often so small that they can't stand up fully or turn around. These cages are so crammed that many dogs and puppies die in the fights that break out due to the close proximity the dogs are forced to live in (almost standing on top of one another). Their feet and legs can also be lost when they get trapped in the gaps between the bars of the cages and are torn off. The mill is unlikely to waste money on treating this, so will often either kill the dog (not necessarily humanely) or just let it bleed to death.
Very often, there is no heating or air conditioning, which leads to many dogs freezing to death in inter, and many more cooking to death in the metal cages which are effectively ovens in the summer. The psychological effects on the dogs are also awful. These dogs have never been allowed to move, in effect, and develop some awful mental and psychological issues.
They breed from their b*tches at every heat (including the first, when her body is not even close to ready to bear puppies), for as long as she holds out. They literally breed her to death. When she cannot reproduce anymore, and is a quivering incontinent heap, they kill her. She may be only 5 or so years old in many cases.
A common problem with dogs rescued from mills is that their jaws have rotted away after tooth decay was not prevented or treated. They also frequently have untreated eye ulcers.
The mills have jumped right onto this "teacup" trend and so are breeding very unhealthy dogs, usually runts, together to produce the smallest puppies possible. To aid in this, they may induce the puppies early, meaning that most won't survive. The have also been known to starve the pups during critical growth periods to keep them small (and ill). On top of this, the puppies may be taken as young as 3 weeks old, and sold as a "teacup" dog.
Animal abuse story -
My recently deceased dog, Saucy, was rescued by my vet's brother (also a vet).
Her previous owner's neighbours had called the RSPCA to complain about the huge breeding operation happening in the house next door, and the smell and noise. My vet's brother went with the RSPCA to see the state of things.
He has told me that the smell was apparent from a few doors away.
Upon entering, they were greeted by the sight of cages piled on top of each other, all housing one or more dog. Mainly, the dogs were mongrels and JRTs, although there were a few Chihuahuas. There were over 40 live dogs, including puppies. Some cages housed dead dogs and/or dead puppies. Many rotting bodies of puppies and what appeared to be aborted dog fetuses were heaped on the floor in plastic carrier bags. Some loose dogs were in the process of tearing open the bags and eating the dead pups, while others were chewing on the dog feces which lay all over the floor.
When they went into the back yard, they were attacked by several dogs - again, mainly mongrels and JRTs. It turned out that these dogs had been bred in those cages and then "trained" as guard dogs by being beaten with broom handles and starved. My dog Saucy was one of these. Most of the dogs had to be put to sleep, sadly, but my vet's brother took home two fearful aggressive dogs from the back yard. He kept one (Rio), and Saucy came to me.
Saucy had some very serious issues. She was scared of everything, and would bite anything she percieved as a threat - which was anything. She would even viciously attack doors and tables. For a while, we thought that she was so unsound that she'd have to be put to sleep, but with much hard work, love, and commitment, over several years she became a keepable dog. People couldn't believe it when I told them that she had been abused previously. She never got over her fear of men with walking sticks, but otherwise she was basically outgoing. Unfortunately, she died very young of sudden cardiac arrest, and whether that was due to her abuse or to poor genetics, I'll never know. The main thing is that the final years of her life were happy ones.
