Living in the north comes with a long list of difficulties as a new homeowner. I spent the better portion of my life living primarily in apartments or condominiums where there was zero condo maintenance inside or out because an on-site maintenance staff was available five afternoons a week to do everything for you. No mowing grass, no fixing plumbing issues or Heating as well as A/C concerns, and obviously no roof or siding to update or repair. The last building I was in had a large boiler system connected to every single unit—you simply had your own control device at your disposal and a nominal weekly fee compared to a gas or electric heating setup. So when I bought a loft for the first time and realized I had to properly maintain something as trivial as my chimney—lest I choke out and kill my family—I was a little overwhelmed. However, I found a large heating and cooling company nearby that covers everything from correct air conditioners to wood burning components appreciate fireplaces and chimney stacks. I signed a maintenance contract to cover my cooling system in the summertime weeks and my fireplace, chimney, and supplemental gas furnace during the Winter time season. They properly disinfect the creosote from my chimney to keep the smoke venting out properly and service the air conditioner several times a year to keep it running for years to come. Granted, I’m still struggling to find solutions for grass care and general condo repairs, however it’s a large weight off my shoulders to have my heating and cooling concerns remedied year round with a single company that I can trust.
