Are You Comfortable in Your Home?

As the saying goes, there is nothing like home!  But, if you are sweating in the Summer and freezing in the Winter, then that can be a problem.  One of the most important elements of a home is a good heating and cooling system that provides a comfortable environment year-round.  Older homes typically suffer from out dated and inefficient heating systems and a lot of them don’t even have air conditioning systems.

If you have an older home that has baseboard or wall heaters, you may want to talk with an experienced heating and cooling company to see if it is time to update to a new heating system.  In addition, if your home does not have any air conditioning, it may be time to upgrade to a new efficient heat pump system that will provide adequate heating and cooling for your home.  Often times older homes do not have the necessary ducting for modern heating and cooling systems, but fortunately there are now “ductless heat pumps” that do not require expensive ducting installation.

If you do live in a more modern home that has a central heating and cooling system, it is important to keep it maintained.  Having a certified heating and cooling technician come to your home to service your furnace or heat pump is critical to ensure it functions properly year in and year out.  If there are problems with your system, be sure to contact a certified HVAC repair company to do any work that may be needed.  Trying to save a little money on a non licensed or certified contractor is not a good idea when it comes to one of the most important elements of your home.

If you live in the Vancouver, Washington area (Battle Ground, Hockinson, Camas, Washougal, Ridgefield, Woodland, La Center, Felida, Brush Prairie, Hazel Dell) be sure to give Tri-Tech Heating & Cooling a call for any of your HVAC needs.  They have been serving the local community since 1993 and are licensed HVAC contractors in Washington and Oregon.

Riverside Traffic Accidents on June 12

There were several car accidents in the Riverside, CA area on June 12.  Here is an excerpt about one of the accidents from PE:

Several people were injured and three eastbound lanes of the 91 freeway in Riverside were closed for two hours Thursday afternoon, June 12, because of a four-vehicle collision.

A California Highway Patrol spokeswoman could not say exactly how many people were injured, but they suffered minor to moderate injuries, she said. A moderate injury could include broken bones but nothing life-threatening.

One of the vehicles involved was a motorcycle. That rider suffered a moderate injury, the CHP said. The CHP website said someone broke a hand, and that a driver of a truck in the car pool lane reported that a box of wooden items fell into that lane.

The collisions were reported about 3:15 p.m. east of Van Buren Boulevard. The car pool and the other two farthest-left lanes were closed for about two hours. All lanes were reopened by 5:45 p.m.

San Antonio Takes It To The Heat

Well, after last years disappointing loss to the Miami Heat, San Antonio put all the frustration into this years NBA season.  They didn’t cry, they didn’t give all the “what ifs”, they channeled all the anger from blowing last years championship to this same Miami Heat team into a thorough smack down of the defending champs.

Personally, I’m glad they not only beat the Heat, but they completely dominated them.  I’m tired of hearing about Lebron and the “big three” of the Heat and how great they are.  Don’t get me wrong, Lebron is a dominate player, and has up’d his game every year he as been in the league and he should be applauded for that.  But, I’m just tired of the PR machine/media constantly raving about them.

The media talks about how they have been to the finals 4 years in a row, but do you really think this Heat team would have been in the finals 4 years in a row if they played in the West?  Yes, they have been the cream of the crop in the East, but that’s not saying much over the last few years.

Great job San Antonio, way to bring the championship back to clearly the better conference!!
