This is why infants and young children are at more serious risk from problems that lead to dehydration, such as diarrhea and vomiting. Being able to drink plenty of water is critical for keeping your body healthy.

But what if the water you drink is contaminated? If you drink water that contains germs, you might put yourself in harm’s way. You can even contract the very illnesses that lead to that dehydration, meaning your water is doing more harm than good. What contamination could be in your water? What can you do about it?

Monday, January 22nd, 2024

Wouldn’t it be lovely if your furnace just lasted forever? Unfortunately, there will come a time when it needs to be replaced. If you have a gas furnace, that will happen after about 15 years, and if you have an electric furnace, you can hope for about 20.

Why Your Outdoor AC Unit Isn’t Draining Properly

Monday, September 18th, 2023

Air conditioners create condensation. Just like droplets drawn from hot humid air onto the surface of an ice-cold glass, condensation forms from moisture in the air against the ice-cold evaporator coils of your AC unit. The drainage system that allows this moisture to be safely collected rather than causing puddles and water damage is a very important part of your air conditioner. It’s a huge bother when your AC unit’s drainage system isn’t working properly! Let’s get to the bottom of your drainage problem.

Monday, June 26th, 2023
