We have a few too many dogs

I adore dogs, and am the proud owner five different domesticated breeds, from chihuahua to St. Bernard. My dogs are my babies and I want to treat them well and keep them indoors. The weather is prone to being very severe. In the winter, the temperature can go well below freezing and snow to our […]

Humidity control

I shuffled through the hallway, and my partner jumped at every crack of wood that our feet disturbed., The old paneling was rotted and bits of bug chewed wood fell to the floor.  As I looked around, I thought about how elegant it must have looked before the oppressive humidity of the area got into […]

How did the weather get so bad

Last winter, my wife and I had just moved into our first home and experienced a doozy of an ice storm.  Schools and government buildings were shut down.  We were banned from the roads and told to stay home.  I remember listening to my parents talk about a similar storm, warning us about the health […]

This is a decent sized space

I’m happy about our heating and air system

My life is not that tough, and I actually have it way better than my great grandparents who lived and worked on a farm. I come from a group of farmers. Each of my ancestors believed that clearly to get great things you must work very hard for them. In fact, whatever happiness you might […]

Styles of all the water tanks

When it was the moment to replace the tepid water heater, I pondered between a traditional tank style model & a tankless alternative.  I have consistently been the one to consider on a conventional tepid water tank, & this has worked super well.  A conventional water heating system is not overly large, & it is […]

We’re thinking about a great water tank

When it was time to get a new hot water heater, I was on the fence between a traditional tank style model in addition to a tankless option.  I have always consisted on a conventional hot water tank, in addition to this has worked alright for me.  A usual water gas furnace is not overly […]
