Inspired by their twin boys, the family behind Green Heat Services decided to create a company that would improve the energy efficiency and health of their home. They had been in the indoor-heating-and-cooling business for more than a quarter century, and so applied their knowledge toward rounding up a capable crew and streamlining the experience for their patrons. A licensed HVAC technician oversees each team during installations and commands the use of vigorous carpet cleaners and truck-mounted, portable, black-hole-powered vacuums. In addition to helping families breathe easier via cleaner indoor air, the business lowers blood pressure by scheduling their visits in two-hour increments, rather than having clients wait all day for crews to arrive.

Gil Stancourt says he'll put a light bulb in anything. Take one look around his studio and you'll believe him. The born tinkerer, who built his first lamp at the age of 12, has spent the last quarter century restoring antique lamps and designing original lighting fixtures, and in that time he's custom-made crystal fixtures, reproductions of cathedral chandeliers, and even art objects from repurposed items. Gil's specialty is bringing back to life antique lamps, which he can convert into more eco-friendly fixtures by retrofitting them to use energy-efficient GU-24 compact fluorescent bulbs and to not shine directly in the eyes of an endangered species that's trying to get some rest.
The lighting master shares his expertise in instructional classes, during which students learn basic wiring techniques and proper tool usage by constructing their own lamp from a wine bottle and other materials.
