About Me
Keeping Grandma Warm This Winter

Growing up, I practically lived at my maternal grandparents’ home. I ate most of my meals at this cozy, brick house in the country. My grandmother spoiled me when I was young. Every weekend, she took me shopping with her. And, I usually came home with something new. My grandfather played catch and checkers with me often. He was always a wonderful listener as well. Sadly, my grandpa passed away right before my thirteenth birthday. My grandma still lives in the house she shared with my granddad. During the winter, she used to build fires in her fireplace. However she relies exclusively on her central heating and air conditioning unit now. On this blog, I hope you will discover the ways an HVAC contractor can help keep your elderly loved ones warm this winter.
