Is my wiring up-to-date?
Most homeowners and inspectors cannot always identify the age of wiring. It takes a trained electrician to do this. If your home was built between 1920 and 1960, the wiring that was used has a tendency to dry rot and cause many problems. Your house should be inspected to determine if your wiring is up-to-date.
All the switches in our condo are not working. Anything that is plugged in is working, but the switches are not. About 15 light switches aren't working. I did flip the breaker, but nothing happened.

What Makes Water Hard?
Water picks up gases and impurities as it goes through the water cycle. Some of these items (including calcium and gypsum) are known as hard minerals. When you have disproportionate amounts of these minerals, your water is deemed hard.
How often should residential HVAC systems be cleaned?
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the homeowner. Some of the things that may lead a homeowner to consider more frequent cleaning include: smokers in the household pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home’s HVAC system after home renovations or remodeling prior to occupancy of a new home.
Will A Water Softener Harm My Septic System?
While there have been concerns over a water softener’s impact on septic systems – such as killing the bacteria in the septic tank with salt, overflowing tanks with too much backwash flow and reducing the drainage field’s ability to absorb water modern treatment systems have reduced these risks considerably. Today's units minimize salt consumption and it has been found to have no harmful effects on bacteria and the soil of the drainage field if properly sized. Insuring your equipment does not regenerate the softener not more than once a week will reduce the amount of backwash entering the septic system and maintain a health septic bed.
What are antimicrobial chemicals and why would they need to be used?
Antimicrobial chemicals are applied by some companies to the interior surface of the air ducts to treat microbial contamination such as fungi (mold), viruses or bacteria. Before any antimicrobial chemicals are used, the system should be thoroughly cleaned. It is critical that any antimicrobial treatment used in your system be registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency specifically for use in HVAC systems. The use of antimicrobial chemicals is an additional service that is not part of a typical air duct cleaning project. Review the NADCA White Paper on Chemical Applications in HVAC Systems for more information.
