The month of October 2018 marks the 34th year for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  As we notice the color of pink taking prominence in our surroundings this month, may it serve to honor both those who have been lost to this horrible disease and those who have overcome it, to celebrate the tremendous progress that has been made in the battle against it, and as a reminder to encourage others to get checked. Even just wearing the color pink in October can convey a life-giving message. GET PINK AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!

For the Warmth From Heat

Is anyone getting fired up about heating season?  It’s definitely approaching!  Some days you can tell, while other days, not so much. Nonetheless, our maintenance team has been busy fine-tuning and making adjustments to the boilers in each one of our buildings to prepare for the switch over from air conditioning to heat.

In the interim, if anyone in your office happens to use a space heater, as a safety precaution, please make sure it is unplugged before everyone leaves the office each day.

What is a boiler, you may ask?  It’s what creates heat for our buildings. Have you ever seen a boiler or wondered about the heating system for office buildings like ours?

Google offered this brief explanation about how a boiler works:

Commercial boilers are pressurized systems that burn combustible fuel or use electricity to heat water that is used to provide heating in your building. … Inside the boiler, the burners or electric coils generate heat that is transferred to the water by the heat exchanger.

The boilers in our buildings use natural gas to heat the water. 

This is a picture of one of the boilers here at Northland Towers.  Isn’t it H U G E ?
