When a person builds or buys a new home, it hopes that his brainchild, in which he invested a huge bunch and a small cart of money will serve him faith and truth. If everything is done by the mind and conscience, so it happens, but over time something starts to break. Sometimes these breakdowns are so imposed on each other, what you sit and think:
What kind of smoothed me? Is that what is going on?
Singing a sunny day on December 16, 2019, which has come through the circumstances on Monday, I will never forget. Monday morning in itself is not a gift, but then everything went to Sunny. Surprises began with the fact that at 7:30 minutes in the morning, from a warm and soft bed, I pulled the voices of children:
It got a gas boiler — fell pressure in the system. It is necessary to top up and tosses very well. The children gathered at school, I will dismiss them, and I discovered home on my home … I got the boiler again.
Pressure in the system — 0.
Somewhere there was a leak that we managed to find in 5 minutes in the son’s room. Battery flowed. I had to drown it and again score water into the system.
After lunch, when I took the children from school, the house happily met the whole family of a newly stuck boiler.
Pressure in the system — 0.
For a long time to seek the leakage did not have to — the battery flowed into the hallway.
In one day «rushed» two batteries in a row!
As it turned out, it was just the beginning. I will not tire you a long story about the running and spent nerves. For this day and the next week in the house covered with a copper pelvis or prepared to do the following:
62 thousand rubles from the family budget flew to eliminate all malfunctions. Imagine: New Year on the nose, the wallet is pouring crocodile tears in unsuccessful attempts to fight off from the Wishlist of the whole family, how suddenly you need to take and lay out about what amount.
And all this in one week! Nine and a half years old, the house was pleased, everything worked as a clock, and here Bach and, as they conspired.
Doesn’t hint at anything?
For exactly determined by the manufacturer, the service life of the goods! Not a warranty period, namely the service life, which is established by the manufacturer and is laid in the product. Surprisingly — the service life of the gas boiler, which is clearly installed in the passport, exactly 10 years. Batteries for which I specifically traveled to the plant — 10 years. Cooking surface — 7 years, LG washed with direct drive — also 7 years. Fittings and other trifles — 5 years.
It turns out that after the construction of the house and its complete setting, if anywhere does not touch, buy a good quality technique, about 5 years you can not worry about breakdowns. Then surprises are inevitable.
And for some reason they coincide with the service life of goods and materials: 5-7-10-15 years.
After all, it is no secret that many materials that are used in the construction of the house also have their own service life. For example, many films serve 10-15 years old, Scotchi — 5 years, roofing materials such as ondulin — 7 years, flexible facades — 7-10 years.
How to protect yourself?
Only have some financial pillow in the honeystone. This is, by the way, a mandatory requirement for everyone who lives in their home. Pillow to every fireman should be!
Our friends have bought a house five years ago, made a housewarming in November, organizing a New Year’s Eve in the form of a mortgage for the next 15 years.
On January 1, they rushed the boiler and the system reminiscent. Before Spring had to live in half at home, which was heated by convectors. There was no money for the new boiler and the replacement of all pipes and radiators. Nobody gave them a new loan with the newly taken mortgage. Our help and helping friends in the form of 20 thousand did not give anything — a drop in the sea.
Such interesting considerations taught me about the «crisis periods of the house». And you had similar coincidences, or everything works like the clock for the last 150 years?
