Why This is the Best Time to Buy a New Air Conditioning System

Let’s face it: no one is buying an air conditioning system at the height of summer unless they’re really in dire straits. Either your old air conditioner is on its last legs, or you’ve decided you can’t deal with another August without central air. And if you’re forced into this position, you should expect to pay more for your system, as air conditioning companies and their products will be in high demand.

And as you clean your home this spring, make sure your ductwork is on your to-do list. It’s a sure way to improve the air quality and make things safer for family members who suffer from allergies.

Over the course of nearly 300 episodes, TV’s MythBusters have debunked all sorts of popular misconceptions, like what happens when you drop a penny off the Empire State Building.

Why a Space Heater May Not Be Your Best Option

It’s a snowy day, and it feels like your heating system just isn’t doing its job. (Maybe it’s time to rethink your choice in home heating contractors.) So you head to the garage to break out the space heater. Your warm, dependable, potentially dangerous space heater. It’s true.
