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.
