These days, Houston, all we can think about is getting back to our warm homes and beds, put on our pj’s and kick back with a glass of whatever it is that makes us feel warm inside, all to forget the freezing cold and rain that has taken over our city. Sure, we recall wanting a “real winter” sometime in the last couple of months, too, but we probably aren’t the only ones who are going to be careful with what we wish for next time around, are we?

Wintertime seems to put everyone in a daze, causing us to bundle up and stay indoors as much as possible. And that is not something that we Houstonians enjoy doing! Lucky for us the worst is over and spring is right around the corner. In fact, we have already had several beautiful 70-degree days with the sun shining. The sun and nice weather do wonders for our spirit, but it also does amazing things to our yard.

Early spring is an important time of the year to focus on your yard. During the winter, your yard basically shuts down in order to protect itself from the harsh weather. But as soon as the winter subsides, your yard starts to wake up from hibernation and things start to grow. And in order to enable your yard to grow strong and green, a few things must be done.

Make Sure A Licensed Electrician Installs All Your Lighting

Nothing draws attention to a room like a chandelier or a statement light. Lighting has the ability to turn a drab living room into a showpiece, and can make eating at your dining room table a romantic event. Are you ready for some upgrades to your home? Lighting can be a relatively inexpensive way to make a big change. Purchasing the fixture or vanity is the easy part, but the installation process can be tricky.

When it comes to replacing or adding new lighting, it is important to do it by the book. Many times, homeowners think they can install an overhead light themselves, and when they are finished noticed a few extra parts still in the box. Does this sound familiar? The fact is, lighting installation is not easy, and if not done correctly can end up causing a whole lot of problems.

It’s 2015, and yes, the times they are a changin’. Over the past few years we have seen a surge in all things energy efficient, and many homeowners are making necessary changes so they can save as much money as possible on monthly bills. And this year, one of the biggest changes we will see will be with water heaters.

“There have been government energy efficiency regulations set by NAECA, the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act, that have been made, and these are regulations that have been put into place over 10 years ago,” said John Moore Services Manager and Master Plumber Joe Bany. “These new water heater regulations stated that by the year 2015 there has to be certain specs on different products. And the deadline for water heaters to meet these requirements is April 15, 2015. This means that from that point forward, water heater manufacturers cannot produce any water heaters that are acceptable in today’s standards. All new water heaters must meet new specifications and energy efficiency ratings.”
