Just a little food for thought

Here it is, that time of year that we have to close up our homes to the outside cold and start up our furnaces. With that comes dry skin, bloody noses, and just a general stuffy feeling in the home. We may not be able to change the outdoor air quality, but we do have the power to improve our indoor air quality. There are a variety of products on the market that can help make our home environment more comfortable in the winter. Adding a humidifier and/or Air purification system can make a big difference.

Grey Water – A Good Quick Lesson

What is meant by a “Gray Water System”? Gray water systems pipe all the waste water from bathroom sinks, tubs, showers, and clothes washer and deliver it to a holding tank via a filter for the purpose of pumping it out to landscape irrigation or back into the home for use to flush toilets. Who is able to install a “Gray Water System”? New homes under construction are the easiest way to achieve a gray water system. However, if the home is built on a crawl space the existing piping system may be modified to tank advantage of this system.

Thinking Green – Rain Water

Rain water harvesting has recently been in the news. Harvesting rain water from rooftops may be required on future homes being built. This can also be accomplished on existing homes as well. The rain is collected through the gutters and into a piping system that runs into a tank. The water collected in this tank can either be pumped out for irrigation use or back into the house for use in flushing toilets. The storage tank must be sized to hold the water from a 1-inch rainfall event (1 sq. ft of roof with this amount of rainfall equals 0.62

The Weather it’s a Changing

The weather is starting to revert back to cold again to the disdain to some of us. That being said, we need to be conscious of the watering we set up for summer irrigation. It’s time to start making these items freeze proof. The best idea during this transition is keeping an eye on the weather report. We can have nice days but it will get below freezing at night. It’s going to be in the low 80’s today but it got below freezing at night last week. Keep your hoses disconnected unless you are going to use them. Install

GeoThermal May Never be CHEAPER

Geothermal systems have heated homes and provided electricity worldwide for centuries. These ground-source systems, once geographically limited, are growing in popularity due to their wider availability and high energy efficiency. Steve Williams, Vice President of Engineering at Research Products says the fundamentals of geothermal technology have changed little in the past 20 to 30 years, but there have been innovations in manufacturing resulting in significantly lower prices, as well as innovations in components that allow systems to deliver better comfort and higher efficiencies. Price Reductions form manufacturers, Federal Tax Credits, State and Local Tax Credits/Incentives plus rebates/incentives from your local
