By regulation, the air inside airplanes is extremely clean.

Today, his team of technicians keeps indoor spaces safe and comfortable by servicing heating and cooling equipment as well as expertly installing brand-new units by Trane, Mitsubishi, and Noritz.

Sky Lanterns are handmade and imported from China, where traditional lanterns have lifted off for centuries and are considered good luck. Packs of pristine lanterns, each about the size of a large beach ball or a 1/100,000-scale model of Jupiter, float peacefully into the sky, propelled by hot air wafting from a small flame within. After about 15 minutes of flight, flames self-extinguish, and the fire-resistant lantern body gently falls and begins to completely biodegrade. Launching Chinese sky lanterns can lend extra pomp and symbolism to events such as memorial services, weddings, and driver’s ed class reunions.
