Roth Heating & Cooling's team of skilled technicians tidy up and refine climate-control systems, performing cosmetic as well as mechanical services intended to promote peak performance. A precision tune-up includes a cleaning and adjusting of the blower components, plus a cleaning of any condenser and evaporator coils. Keen eyes will then scrutinize the heat exchanger, burners, and condensate drains, confiscating any dirt-based contraband found along the away. Moving parts will be lubricated and all electrical connections will be tightened before standard filters are cleaned or replaced. Afterward, staff will check thermostat operation, measure amp draws, calculate temperature drop across the coil or furnace, and compile this data into a haiku written in binary code. Finally, the safeties receive a thorough testing and nimble hands clean the equipment cabinets inside and out before Roth's team vanishes into thin air.
In 1991, Home Grown Edible Landscaping owner Janie Malloy stood on her new back porch staring at a dirt patch and one lonely elm tree and saw only opportunity. After gathering supplies and burying the magic beans a wizard gave her, she quickly transformed the barren swathe of land into an eye-catching garden and a business. Today, Janie shares and develops the skills she cultivated in the early 90s. She still grows her own sustainable fruits and vegetables on land surrounding her 100-year-old bungalow and now teaches classes on gardening, pickling, and healthy eating. When she's not tending to her small field, she acts as a horticultural architect, designing fetching, intricate home gardens. The vibrant outdoor landscapes liven up backyards with hearty greens, fire-engine red peppers, and giant Venus Fly Traps that ward off gleaners.
