I don’t know about you, but I really dislike chemistry. I appreciate all that it has done for me, and I really enjoyed the “Fire Fridays” we had in my high school chemistry class, but chemistry was not and is not my thing.

Beware of Dog…Near Air Conditioner

What to Do if the Air Conditioner Won’t Turn On

Be Prepared for a Home Inspection with these HVAC Tips
I am starting to feel like a lot of people I know are beginning to buy or think about a buying a house. Home ownership carries with it great excitement, but also great trepidation. It is not just the worrying about mortgage payments and debt that could get you down either. Suddenly you are responsible for household elements that you never before had to worry about. For example, the heating and cooling system in your home.
New May 2013 Energy Efficiency Standards will Not Be Enforced
Last summer I learned about the new U.S. Department of Energy standards for high efficiency furnaces that would be implemented in May 2013. At the time, it seemed like forever ago but now I look at my calendar and May is slowly but surely creeping up on us. However, these new standards are not. According to ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America), the Department of Energy will not be enforcing these regulations:
