Got High Humidity?

Christmas is right around the corner and what a joyous time it CAN be. The holiday is centered around happiness but let’s face it, shopping and decorating will stress out even the most level-headed individuals.

Ken’s Contracting Corner: Going above the Call this Fall
Furnace Alternatives: Comparing Wood and Pellet Stoves
I don’t know about everyone else but here in Ohio, it just went middle of summer to very late fall overnight. Almost like Mother Nature was going 85 in a 55, saw a state trooper and slammed on the brakes. I can’t take full credit for that line, saw a funny meme online. But for […]
Stop the Back Drafting This Winter
We are quickly approaching the heating season and for a good portion of you, natural gas is likely your method.
