Today is Friday, the weekend is here

Oh look, it’s Friday and the weekend is upon us.  Put that together with it being July 4th week, beautiful weather, and we are about to head off to vacation.

Isn’t this just the perfect time to continue thinking of your Vacation Home here in The Green Mountain State?  Of course, we all know that nothings is better than July and August in Vermont!  Don’t forget that even the skiers look forward to this.

Have you thought of a Vacation Home?

Next Tuesday is July 4th and for many people the Nation’s Birthday Holiday will start on Friday and last all next week.  Yes, Vermont Modular Homes will be closed for a long holiday weekend along with everyone else.

So, while you and your family are on vacation have you considered building your own vacation home right here in Vermont?  Well of course you have and honestly, we think it’s a great idea.

Energy Efficiency vs Energy Conservation.

As I start to write this blog post it dawns on me that today is May 30th, the traditional day for Memorial Day.  This May 30th let us all remember those that have preserved our freedoms and the joy we have in our lives.

Energy Efficiency is a theme that Vermont Modular Homes constantly talks about, we think of Energy Efficiency as one of our core values.

Plan ahead, start thinking summer

Over this past weekend we had unseasonably cold weather, snow, sleet, freezing rain, and very high winds.  Isn’t April just fabulous!  I have mentioned several times that I personally think April is the cruelest month of the year.  Last weekend snow, this coming weekend it is forecast to be 60 degrees.  See why I think April is awful!  The great thing about April is that it is followed by glorious May and so on…………

Energy Efficient Furnace.

Yesterday we talked about how Condensing Boilers had become very energy efficient and that in some European Countries the government was either requiring Condensing Boilers or strongly encouraging their use with financial subsides; the goal is to reduce Green House Emissions and to improve the environment.  Don’t forget that a Boiler makes Hot Water.

Today let’s take a look at how the Furnace has improved.  Boilers make hot water and the Furnace makes Hot Air.

How about that kitchen fire?

The other day we talked about a grease and/or cooking oil fire in the kitchen and how very dangerous they can be.  I was surprised how quickly people commented on that blog post.  Obviously, there is sincere interest and concern.  Let’s face it the grease fire in the kitchen can easily end up with the home being destroyed so, the kitchen fire is critically important and extremely dangerous!

What’s going on down in the basement?

So, is spring is around the corner?  Here in northern Vermont the temperatures have been rapidly climbing across most of the north country.  Much if not all of the snow is gone.  Let’s not forget that today it is the first of March and spring has not arrived!  This is still a great time to be thinking and working on keeping your home here in Vermont warm and comfortable in winter.
