Job/career advice.

Posted on

I have been working part time for a big company here for about 6-7 months. I was part time due to still being in tech school. I got laid off a month and a half ago, but told I had done a great job with the company and they want to hire me (full-time w/raise) and I'd only be off for a month. My boss called two weeks ago to check up on me and also let me know I should expect to be back to work in two weeks(due to it slowing down a bit). It's been two weeks and I haven't heard back and he hasn't returned my calls. I still have my company issued power tools. They told me to hold on to them. But my question is do you think I'm being strung along? Should I start looking for another job?

I like the company, I also had a few co workers text me asking where I am because they are lacking good workers. Being brand new to this I don't know if I should wait it out or start looking elsewhere. Money is also getting a bit tight as well. Any advice is appreciated.

PS, sorry about any grammar mistakes I wrote this out quick.

Dual Mini-Split: Am I being ripped off?

Posted on

Hi all, I hope this appropriate to ask here. If not, feel free to redirect me.

We got an estimate to have a dual mini-split installed (One up stairs, one down stairs). The contractor thinks 18k BTU (I agree) for each floor and has recommended the Carrier 21 SEER model. I was under the impression that one of these was around $4.5k installed, so I was surprised to find that for both he was quoting us almost 10K (with Tax). He was very hesitant to give price breakdowns, but did say labor was $1800 . . . so that leaves about 8K in materials/permits which doesn't add up to me. Any help on whats going on here or how to navigate it? Is that equipment just overkill? Thanks!

Gas Hearth Heater w/ No Blower – Options?

Posted on

I rent an apartment in a traditional New England triple-decker. The heater is similar to this but without the nice front. This unit is installed in the kitchen and does not have a blower installed, so the heat just rises to the ceiling and leaves the rest of the apartment chilled.

The far bedroom is about 20-30 feed away from the heater, through two doorways, and I'm looking for a way to get some heat over there and away from our toasty ceilings. I've considered purchasing the factory blower and having it installed, but I've very hesitant to spend money on my (not great) landlord's house. Any thoughts?
