Air Balancing Cools Evenly And Reduces The Need For AC Repair

Posted by John Moore

Have you ever noticed that some rooms in your home are hotter or cooler than others, or had to use additional heaters during the winter or fans during the summer? If you have, then you know how uncomfortable and inconvenient dealing with controlling the comfort level in your home can be. A great solution that will get you back to ideal comfort is getting your air balanced. The purpose of air balancing is to ensure that all components of your heating and cooling systems are working in harmony and provide total comfort for everyone. Other reasons to utilize the air balancing service are: odors are present inside the building or hot and cold spots exist; the building is drafty or stuffy; doors stay open or slam closed when the air kicks in; excessive dirt or dust is present; flies and other bugs are a bother and always seem to be around; and/or unusually high energy bills. It’s the perfect solution that will give you maximum comfort in your home and save you energy, which keeps money in your pocket too!

So, now you know it can be done, but who can do it?

Medical Emergency Response Systems Save Lives

Getting older is a part of life that we all have to deal with. This includes taking care of ourselves as we start to age, and also taking care of our friends and family. Did you know that 33% of all people age 65 and older will fall at least one time each year, and of those, more than half will need help getting up? That’s a pretty alarming statistic. It is especially scary when we have older loved ones who live alone, because when they fall or get hurt, no one is around to help them.

Personal medical emergency response systems were designed specifically to help older, sick, or disabled individuals who live alone. This system can be added on to any existing home security plan, or it can be purchased separately. Read on to learn all about emergency response systems so you can determine if this system is the right fit for you or someone you know.

Generators Will Power Your Electrical Items During Hurricane Season

Imagine this: A category 4 hurricane hits the Gulf of Mexico (like Ike of 2008) and along with a blown down fence and broken tree limbs all over your yard, you lose power. And you don’t just lose power for a few hours; you lose power for over a week. What do you do?

It’s summertime, it’s hot, and it’s hurricane season. The last thing we want is to not have a functioning air conditioning system if we get hit hard with a hurricane this year. And having a generator installed in your home is a great way to make sure your family stays cool during the summer, even if a hurricane strikes.

What's Causing Your Plumbing Issues? Get To The Root Of The Problem!

After a long day, Theresa Finch of Sugar Land wanted to take a hot bath. She went into her bathroom and noticed that the bottom of her tub was filled with sediment, dirt, and sand. Assuming the problem had to do with a clogged drain, she attempted the typical do-it-yourself unclogging remedies, but had no luck.

“I figured it was a deep clog because usually I can unclog pipes myself, so I decided to call John Moore Services. I had used them a few weeks earlier for my air conditioner and thought I’d give them a try with my plumbing,” said Finch. “The plumber came out, snaked the drain and found out that roots of a tree that was directly outside my bathroom window were growing inside my piping and causing my whole system to clog and back up.”

Stop West Nile Carrying Mosquitos With A Pest Control Treatment Plan

If you walk outside during the summertime, especially when it sun is setting, you will be swarmed with a variety of bugs and insects. Unfortunately our Houston climate is an ideal place for most bugs, especially mosquitos, which is why it’s important to have an ongoing pest control treatment plan in place.

Lets face it: mosquitos are a nuisance. They bite us, make us itchy for days, and hinder our ability to go outdoors when we please. And certain mosquitos can cause us to get extremely sick and even die. The West Nile Virus is a disease carried by mosquitos that is transferred to humans when that person is bit. These disease-carrying mosquitos have already been spotted in The Woodlands this year, and it’s only a matter of time before they make their way to the rest of the Houston area. Read on to learn all about the West Nile virus so you can prevent these bugs from infecting you and your family.

Be Prepared For Hurricane Season-- Water Damage Restoration Can Help

Posted by John Moore

Jul 8, 2014 8:00:00 AM

Hurricane season is upon us, and while it’s still too early to tell if this year is going to be a bad one or not, it’s never too early to be prepared. I mean, who can forget Hurricane Ike? Ike left thousands of Houstonians without power for weeks, and its record-high storm surge in Harris County flooded over 2,550 homes.

“During Ike, I sent my most of my family to College Station to get out of the storm’s way, and stayed in my home with my son during the actual storm,” said John Moore Services Water Restoration Manager Joe Souza. “We were without power for five days and had a lot of tree damage. Luckily we didn’t experience any flooding, but I was sure busy for a long time after Ike dealing with the extensive flood damage across the Houston area.”

Water Conservation -- Common Plumbing Problems That Waste Gallons

Posted by John Moore

Jul 3, 2014 8:00:00 AM

It’s common knowledge that the world is mostly made up of water, but did you know that 97% of it is salt water, which is dangerous for humans to ingest? That leaves 3% fresh water, and of that, only 1% is actually drinkable. That’s not much water for over 7 billion people to share, which is why water conservation is extremely important.

Limiting our water use as much as possible around the house is something that we should all do, but sometimes, we are wasting water and not even realizing we are doing it. For instance, plumbing problems like a  leaky faucet or pipe can waste over 3,000 gallons of water each year. Read on to learn where the most vulnerable spots in the home are for water waste and for tips on how to conserve water.
