Now that the weather is finally cooling down it's time to turn on those fireplaces! Watch this video to see how!!
Want to start your fireplace? Or maybe you need to relight the pilot in a gas fireplace?
At the beginning of the summer we showed you how to turn off your fireplace so that the pilot wasn't on unnecessarily. Watch that video here: https://youtu.be/pxGhF3E_dqg
Now that the weather is finally turning colder and we are officially in the fall season, we will show you how to light a gas fireplace, including how to get that pesky pilot light back on.
And remember, at any point that you smell a strong gas smell, leave the house and call a professional. Better safe than sorry!

We get a lot of questions about mold, and with good reason. Mold is concerning. Check out this article from Tuck.com about how mold in your bedroom could be affecting your sleep.
While it's not cheap, if you have a mold concern you might want to do some air quality testing. And we'd be glad to help you with that. Give us a call today to discuss your concerns and see if an indoor air test might be appropriate!
New video this week, and just in time for movie night this weekend! Check it out!

Here’s a #FridayFunny that really made me stop for a second.
This was a picture in the wood tech classroom during the back to school night. At first glance, I chuckled. It’s funny, and fairly true. But the reason I was sitting in the wood tech room is that my daughter is in this class. And she loves to build things. And she is clearly not a man.
I struggled with how she might perceive this message. And I was a little miffed that the stereotype that only men take wood tech was being perpetuated. But then the teacher started his spiel for the night.
And he proceeds to say how excited he is for the record number of female students in his class, how he typically receives great work from them because they tend to pay more attention to details, and how he hopes this trend continues so that his male to female ratio is balanced. And it’s clear that he is not sexist at all, and probably just had the slide included because he thought it was funny without thinking about deeper connotations.
So I am happy she is in this class, even if I might gently point out that the slide should probably get changed. And I hope to see the tide continue to turn in favor of women in whatever fields interest them.
Here’s to the education of all our students!
Kids back to school means uninterrupted office time. That’s worth celebrating!
We hope all the teachers and students have a great school year!
