Winter, just like summer, puts a lot of demand on the power grid. People are running their heating systems for hours a day, potentially overloading the system and causing a power outage.

Fortunately, you can deal with this by installing a generator. Let’s take a look at some reasons why you might want a generator installed.

Benefits of getting your air ducts cleaned during the winter.

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

duct cleaning

Indoor Air Quality

A duct cleaning is a great way to improve your overall air quality. This is especially important through the winter season because added moisture in the air can make air ducts the perfect breeding ground for molds. Also, a good duct cleaning can help people who are sensitive to allergies. Breathing dirty air can have a lot of downsides. A clean duct system will ensure that you are breathing clean air.

Decreased Energy Cost

25 to 40 percent of energy costs are wasted on heating according to the U. S. Department of Energy. Debris and contaminants in your air ducts can cause your HVAC system to overwork and will also shorten it’s lifespan. In the winter season, you can definitely benefit from this added efficiency.

A Clean Home

A sure sign that your air ducts need cleaning is if you are seeing dust on surfaces shortly after you just dusted and cleaned your house. Your air is circulated 5 to 7 times per day through your ducts so it can easily disperse dust into your home regularly if not cleaned. Another sign the ducts need cleaning is dark lines under doors or around air ducts.

To schedule a duct cleaning, call 360-456-4956 today!

Lupercalia: The Origin of St. Valentine’s Day

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Many people may think of Valentine’s Day as a holiday essentially created by card and gift companies, but the truth is that the holiday has long-standing roots going back to the Roman Empire. The name “Lupercalia” has its origins in the word “lupus”, which means wolf, and the reason for this is that according to Roman pagan religion, the she-wolf Lupa nursed the two orphaned infants Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome.


The Festival

The Festival of Lupercalia spanned two days each February, from February 13th to 15th. The festival was about fertility and was led by Luperci priests, known as “brothers of the wolf”. The festival was serious with intention (fertility) but was executed as quite a romp for both the priests and citizens of Rome. The process was this: two male goats and a dog were sacrificed at the beginning of the festival by the priests; two young Luperci were then anointed with the blood from the animals, and the hides of the animals were cut into straps. As food and drink flowed, the male priests would run around the city wearing nothing but thongs made from the animal skins, and they also carried a strap made from one of the sacrificed animals’ skins. The strap was used to strike the palms of Roman women waiting for the priests in the city, as it was believed that being hit with the strap could help with infertility issues and a safe, healthy labor for women who were pregnant.


The Transition to St. Valentine’s Day

The Christian influence of the holiday came around the 5th century. The Roman Empire was still strong, but Christianity was rapidly taking hold throughout the world. It is believed that to try and remove the paganism from the holiday, the deaths of two men, supposedly both named Valentine, were added into the mix. During the 3rd and 4th centuries, a law created by Claudius II forbade young men eligible for military service to marry, because Rome wanted a strong army. The two men named Valentine were priests, and married young couples in secret. Both were found out and executed on February 14th, although in separate years. The Church made Valentine a saint (they chose one), and Lupercalia became St. Valentine’s Day.


Here’s wishing you and your loved one a Happy Valentine’s Day!
