Scott's Thoughts

Hot News & Cool Tips

Hello world! My name is Scott Good, the owner of Goodco Mechanical. I am excited about the opportunity to share thoughts with you that I hope will provide some helpful information as well as keep you entertained.  Since Goodco is a heating, air conditioning and plumbing company, much of what I will discuss in this blog will pertain to those topics. However, I realize that I will struggle to hold even my own attention if that’s all I write about so be prepared for other items of interest that I feel are relevant and worth discussing.  I hope you’ll share your thoughts with me on the topics as well. I’ll be posting often so check back regularly.

It depicts a guy getting ready to dive into a lake after just finishing the book “How to Swim”.  In today’s hi-tech world of HVAC, things are changing so fast that just when we learn it, they upgrade or modify it.  I’m constantly amazed at my techs, installers and sales people and just how quickly they can educate themselves on…

The Shifting Seasons??

OK, I wanted to write a blog related to the shift in seasons. What the heck does that even mean? My perception over the past 3-4 years is that our seasons have been starting later than I used to remember. Since I own a heating and air conditioning business, I tend to be a bit more perceptive about temperatures than the Average Joe. I seem to…

When I travel, I love taking pictures of beautiful vistas, historic sites and yes…..weird plumbing and HVAC stuff.   The stainless steel “pee wall” picture…
