Ireland Post #2

I’ve been back a week from Ireland and had some time to reflect on the trip. Here are some general observations. First, the people of Ireland are so damn nice.

Equipment lifespan: Repair or Replace

I am often asked how long a furnace or water heater should last. This usually follows a conversation about a major repair and whether the homeowner should repair or replace.  So what are the factors behind the decision so you’re not throwing money away on unnecessary repairs. Let’s start with how long things should last.  I have some rules of thumb I like to use…

Hello and thanks for joining me.

Hello! For my inaugural post I thought I’d share two things: a snippet of how I got started in my business and one of the things that motivates me daily to keep doing it. I had a dream of owning my own business since shortly after college, and after having the good fortune of working for some large and reputable mechanical contracting companies in the…
