Should I Have a Sump Pump Installed in My Home?

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

When you hear about a home flooding, you may think of heavy rainfall in the hurricane season that devastates certain parts of the country. The fact of the matter is, though, that many basements in our area take in water, and a hurricane is not necessary for serious water damage to occur. We get more than enough rain during the spring and summer seasons to lead to considerable water in leaky basements, and snowmelt is another fact that we must keep in mind.

How Can a Heat Recovery Ventilator Benefit Me?

Monday, February 15th, 2016

Around here, we are used to dealing with cold, harsh conditions during the winter season.

Monday, February 8th, 2016

The furnace is one of the most popular of all home heating systems, which will come as no surprise to anyone that has ever basked in the consistent, reliable comfort that such heating systems allow for.

For all of their pros, though, you must remember that even the furnace is not perfect. You are going to need furnace repairs in Ludlow, VT eventually. Keep your eyes out for signs of trouble—or, in the event of a burning odor, your nose.
