Goettl Air Conditioning Offers its Services to the Elderly

Jean Jackson lives in Los Vegan. She is ninety four years old. Not long ago, she used to rely on two tiny window conditioners to ensure that her house was cool during the hot summer. The air conditioners currently worn out and most of the time, they do not function. She had some good air conditioners in the past, but they got old and could not be replaced. The air conditioners are no longer available in the market. She has been living in the house for over three decades, and it requires rewiring so that it can support the new air conditioning systems.

Jean depends on the Social Security for a living. Purchasing a new system in the modern times is impossible for her. For the senior people living in Las Vegas like Jean Jackson, the summer can be a dangerous time without the air conditioning system. According to CDEP, the elderly have a difficult time adjusting to the changes in temperature compared to the young. These individuals are more likely to suffer from various chronic conditions that mostly change the way the human body responses to heat.

In the past, Jean Jackson was hospitalized due to a heatstroke. When her two tiny systems collapsed and stopped functioning, paramedics in the area advised her to relocate to a nursing home to avoid the risk of getting a heatstroke. The summer heat is too hot for jean Jackson.

Not long ago, Goettl Air Conditioning partnered with its sister organization, known as The Sunny Plumber to help Jean Jackson. The company, led by Ken Goodrich, thought that it was a good idea to look after the elderly individuals in the community.

The plumbing company managed to fix the water line in Jean Jackson’s house, while Goettl Air Conditioning, helped by a company known as Daikin-Goodman Global set up a good system that is able to warm the house in winter and cool in during summer. The cost of the whole project was too high for Jackson, and she could never have afforded it on her own.

Goettl Air Conditioning was started in 1939 by Adam Goettl and Gust. The company brought its services to Les Vegas in 1986. The 2007 recession affected the company, forcing it to move to Southern Nevada. In 2015, the company returned to Les Vegas.

Video Visitation Technology by Securus Technologies is Helping Bridge the Gap between Prisoners and their Families

For several years, Securus Technologies has been at the forefront of providing telecommunication technology to U.S. State prisons. The company is actively serving more than 3,400 institutions that includes prisons, correctional facilities, intelligence agencies and various criminal justice organizations. According to recent estimates, nearly 1.2 million inmates are served by the company in prisons across the United States. Perhaps, the development of advanced prison technology can be attributed to ongoing research and development activities at Securus. For instance, Securus Technologies also holds the largest number of patents in the industry, numbering more than 140. Similarly, every month the U.S. patent office continues to receive applications for new patents from Securus Technologies.

Still, one of the most innovative technologies that the company has ever presented is video visitation suite. As the name suggests, video visitation allows families of prisoners to contact their loved ones inside the various U.S. prisons using video transmission. It is also true that video conferencing is nothing new as almost anyone can make video calls using numerous video software. However, in the context of U.S. prison industry, the high-speed video visitation is an extraordinary effort. However, the innovative solution by Securus Technologies is able to rectify traditional shortcomings of similar applications.

The power of video visitation is evident from the claims of Securus Technologies that children of incarcerated prisoners can easily share their homework with their parents. As such, the user-friendly video interface allows prisoners to contact their loves ones easily just like anyone outside the prison walls. Due to the high streaming video, prisoners and their kids can also enjoy special moments including birthdays, weddings, family reunions and graduation ceremonies. According to the management of Securus Technologies, video visitation will allow prisoners to strengthen bonds with their kids. As a result, prison officials and developers of the application hope that regular video contact with kids and their families will increase the rehabilitation process. Hopefully, these prisoners will feel it easier to integrate with the society upon their release.

Despite the advantages, what caught the eye of industry experts is the potential use of the video visitation technology using popular applications like iPhone, iPad and Smart phones. Due to advance mechanics, video visitation software allows users of these devices to seamlessly connect with the hardware used in the prison. The application is particularly interesting considering that many prison facilities are opting for the use of iPad facilities that they can offer to prisoners who show good behavior. If prisons continue to adapt such technologies, new updates and development in video technology will be very interesting.
