Dom Guarnagia

Editor’s Note: Rather than continue his Preventive Maintenance Checklist

discussion this month, Dom Guarnagia felt it was more important to address
the immediate problem of frequent electrical power outages experienced during
this especially cold winter by a number of residents.
A number of us in the Village have experienced electrical power outages
when using the kitchen range, heating the apartment with the heating com-
ponent of our air-conditioning unit, or even, in some cases, when defrosting
a vegetable in the microwave oven or watching TV. There are several ways
to deal with a problem of inadequate electricity and prevent such outages.
Taking a look at the appliances and fixtures that meet our everyday needs,
here are some.
Through-the-wall AC unit with auxiliary heating
Air-conditioning units are designed for their cooling capacity. Heating is
secondary. When these units were sized and installed 40 years ago, the aver-
age summer temperature was 87 degrees Fahrenheit and the average winter
temperature 72—a range of about 15 degrees. Today’s average temperatures
range between 92 in the summer and 65 in the winter—a 27-degree difference.
The average AC unit is designed to comfortably maintain and produce a
10-degree differential between indoors and outdoors without straining the
unit. However, the heating ability is hard-pressed to accomplish the same
in winter and pushes the envelope. Many less efficient AC units are still in
operation and are straining the power output.

Do Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth?

Windsor Q held its first “Secret Cook-Off Competition” on its patio on Valentine’s Day.
The contest began when chefs Roland Rogers, Linda Graff and David Stiefelmeyer shouted
“soups on,” as three pots of the home-made chicken soup heated on the BBQ. Not knowing
what chef cooked what soup, hungry and anxious building residents tasted soups #1, 2, and
3. Their votes were put into a jar, counted and the winner was Linda Graff. Another cook-off
