Ever wonder why your AC smells when you turn it on? Looking for an easy enough solution to keep the smell out and your guests happy? Broadley’s is here to explain why that smell is creeping into your home and how to fix it. It’s especially important to pay attention to these seemingly mediocre AC issues during this time of transition from summer to fall. These small problems have a tendency to grow into huge problems over the colder months.It probably comes as no surprise that a large part of the awful smells coming from your air conditioner are thanks to mold and mildew growth. It is easy for airborne contaminants to find their way into the system, even during the idle winter months. These contaminants mix with the system’s cool, damp environment to form the mold and mildew that gets released into your air when you turn on your unit. There is also the issue of dirty air filters, which you must remember to have replaced.Another cause could be that the smells are coming from other locations in your home and traveling through the air vents or even traveling from outside and entering your home. Something as commonplace as a candle or cleaning products can be the cause.So how do you fix it? A few easy solutions are to change your everyday habits. If you have exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom, make sure to turn them on while cooking and showering. If you don’t have these units already in place it may be time to consider having them installed. Vacuum, dust and clean linens frequently to remove air contaminants. When you use cleaning products, make sure chose cleaners that have less harsh fumes to improve your overall air quality.As far as maintenance to the actual AC unit, we recommend having your air filters changed regularly. Call Broadley’s and have a service technician replace them right away. How often you need to replace your filter depends on the type of filter and other varying factors such as the environment you live in or if you have pets. You might also need to have an HVAC specialist come and clean the coils in your unit. It not only cleans your system for quality of air and smell purposes, but also increases the efficiency of your unit. This will be helpful down the road, as regular cleaning will improve the lifespan of your appliances.Remember not to tamper with home units you are unfamiliar with and to call a professional when the times comes. Broadley’s is here to answer any questions and help you have your home smelling fresh. Call today at (609) 390-3907 or visit broadleys.net.
Indonesian start-up FinAccel is planning this year to expand its digital credit service, which currently has 1.2 million users, to other ASEAN states to double its credit to Rp 4 trillion (US$291.7 million), one of its senior officials.“We decided to expand to Thailand and the Philippines because they are similar to Indonesia,” Alie Tan, the CEO of Kredivo, the credit lending app operated by the Singapore-headquartered FinAccel, told the press at a public seminar on Feb. 20, adding that the three countries shared similar demographics and spending habits.Alie said that FinAccel, one of the major peer-to-peer (P2P) lending companies in Indonesia, also planned to tap into healthcare and education loans, as the Financial Services Authority (OJK) mandated that the company allocate a minimum of 30 percent of its funds toward productive loans. He said the company was still looking for potential lenders in the two sectors. “In the long term, we are also studying Sharia lending options, since Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim country,” said Alie.FinAccel received Rp 1 trillion in funding from Permata Bank in 2019 which was said to be the biggest fund a national bank had channeled to a lending tech company.Alie said the company was also in talks with several other banks on providing its P2P lending services to distribute funds.According to OJK data, online lending companies disbursed funds totaling Rp 81.5 trillion through more than 81 million individual transactions in 2019.The Indonesian Fintech Lenders Association (AFPI) has projected 50 percent growth in P2P lending for 2020.Topics : read more
