Winter Work

Happy New Year!

It’s time to get your house ready for winter, and we can help you get that done. We’ve already been working on some projects for customers to get everything winterized.  One of the biggest losses of heat during the winter is the front door. Through the constant use of the front door things get out of whack and the warm air is sneaking out! We can come evaluate where the leaks are coming from, and the best way to fix it.

Another loss of energy is through the attic. Quite a few attics are lacking in the amount of insulation needed to keep you warm this winter. We can quickly and easily evaluate how deep your current insulation is, how much more you need, and ensure there is proper airflow from the soffits.  Before we put in any new insulation, we’ll go around to each light box and insulate around the seams with fireproof spray foam to eliminate even the smallest of heat loss into the attic (because heat rises, right!?)

Let us come, DO IT RIGHT, and help you be more comfortable and save some money this winter.

Have you kept up with the new laws about light bulbs?  We have!  In January 2012, standard 100 watt light bulbs we’ve used for years were phased out and no longer sold in the U.S.   In January 2014, now 75 watt light bulbs will no longer be manufactured.  Our lawmakers in Washington have decided it’s time to help all of us slowly but surely change our ways to help reduce the amount of energy we use.  So what’s next? Time to start using more energy efficient things around our houses! Fluorescent bulbs have really come a long way since they started making them, and use a lot less energy. LED lights are also coming along, but there’s quite a few cons to using them. I can help you determine which bulbs and lamps will work the best for your needs. And don’t forget about dimmers! Most of the old style dimmer switches will not work with fluorescent bulbs. But it’s an easy replacement we can do in a snap!

While normally work starts to slow for all contractors during the winter months, our business is booming. We have so much work it’s hard to keep up with everything! But let us know what we can do for you to get your projects done. We are in the process of becoming certified with the Better Business Bureau, so all our customers know they can count on us to make things right, keep customers happy and referrals coming.  Thanks to you all for your business.  We will continue to give you all good service at a very fair price.  When it comes to your projects, you know who to count on.
