Are you wondering about the best solution for your next kitchen?

Our guide proposes to enlighten you on the differences and the advantages of each type of cooking. No more hesitation while comparing! You can always check various kitchen furniture design, with the help of the internet. Let’s avoid the war of the kit / the made to measure, its better” and let’s say it right away when it comes to cooking, there is no single or ideal solution. The right choice is the one that corresponds to his desires, his budget and his way of life. Basically, if you are looking for the price first and you are ready to make concessions on the variety of the offer or installation by specialists, then the kit option can be the right one. If in another perspective, you want a kitchen made for you, which does not look like any other, then the custom is for you.

Another option is the standard kitchen, which, as its name suggests, offers models that can be of good quality, but which will not necessarily fit 100% to your needs.

From the idea to the kitchen project

Going through a DIY store or general kitchen offering kit kitchens means that you will have to manage your project alone. Some brands offer a lot of help, but these benefits may be paying. In tailor made, a designer accompanies you from the definition of the project to its realization and remains your unique interlocutor. In addition, a professional installer will take charge of the installation and installation of your kitchen.

The kitchen kit

The kitchen kit is, as implied by its name, composed of furniture to assemble by the concerned person and in a range of dimensions, colors and finishes often reduced. It is therefore more of an entry level product, because this rationalization of the supply makes it possible to lower costs. When the furniture is delivered assembled, or said factory assembled, it is called standard kitchen, or custom.

The standard kitchen

In the first case, the size of the boxes remains standardized in height, width and depth, although it is sometimes possible to find several dimensions in the catalog. As a result, the standard offer does not know how to adapt to constrained spaces such as for a kitchen under a slope or wall to wall. It is mandatory to use planning “tips” to hide lost spaces (unsightly spinners) and storage capacities are reduced. Finally, the work plans allow little freedom of cutting.

The custom kitchen

For its part, the custom made allows all possible variations and adapts to all parts, constraints and technical difficulties. The furniture being adapted to the millimeter, one avoids any loss of place, one optimizes the space. Schmidt stands out especially in the three dimensional custom   ergonomic heights, width to the millimeter and a wide choice of depths.

No air conditioning or only weak

Decreased efficiency or complete cooling failure is the most common condition of the air conditioning system and in most cases there is a lack of cooling medium. It is a compound of fluorine, carbon and hydrogen. Unlike the previously used R12 medium, it does not contain chlorine and does not damage the ozone layer. Since the system is operating at relatively high pressures of around 20 bar, the new car delivers little refrigerant leakage through hose material, seals and compressor (it can reach up to 30% per year on the new car), after years of operation microscopic cracks in the capacitor itself is evident. If there is no mechanical damage to the system (for example in an accident), it takes several years during which the air conditioner is operating normally, but with a significant refrigerant leak, the efficiency of the air conditioning is reduced, and when the pressure drops below a certain level, the control electronics will no longer allow the compressor to run so it becomes inoperative.

Label with data on the quantity and specification of the coolant and oil for the compressor

The cooling medium also carries vital lubricating oil for the compressor, which, in its absence, can withstand. Now you practically have nothing left to do but visit a service that will also advise on maintenance of air conditioning. They are equipped with so called fillers, which, after being connected to the air conditioning system of the car, first vacuum the remaining refrigerant, then a vacuum test are carried out, whereby greater leaks should be shown. If the system maintains a vacuum for a set period of time, the refill is filled with coolant, compressor oil and possibly a substance that reveals leaks under the UV light in the system. Each car has an exact amount of coolant and oil to be in the system.

Coolant refills and the associated service will most likely cost you from 500 to 1,000. Serious company will not charge you the entire amount of refrigerant contained in the system but only the missing part, as it is recyclable, and after the work is done it will also perform low pressure and high pressure diagnostics and air conditioning output measurement. As mentioned above, a defective compressor may also become a malfunctioning air conditioner. With a well functioning air conditioner, it can be heard quite clearly in older cars (up to the year of production in 2004) when the engine is started, how the compressor clutch clicks on when the engine is engaged, at the same time increasing the idling speed.

Air conditioning smells

As far as the ventilation system is concerned, when the air conditioner is turned on, it is a bacteria and fungus that is deposited in the evaporator. They will help you in the service and disinfect the entire system with a special spray. Cleaning can also be done by self help and goes out to several hundred. Due to the high dustiness that is on our roads, the workshop recommends to replace at least every two years the cabin (saw) filter that cleans the air coming into the ventilation system. Even this can be done by self help, and it is a matter of several hundred.
