Member Rob McManus of Ductz of South Charlotte presented to our group to educate us on the importance of duct cleaning and why everyone should consider this valuable service.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have been shown to act as a collection source for a variety of contaminants that have the potential to affect health, such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust. The removal of such contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered as one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality.

CRESN member Mary Loli recently spoke to the group about her company, NC Stone fabricators, LLC, and the granite fabrication services they provide.

Dont let just the beauty of granite fool you: This natural stone is hard-working and durable, making it an ideal choice for countertops. It is becoming an increasingly popular material for counters in both new and remodeled houses. Granite countertops represent an investment in your home, and they will provide years of service.With its heat-resistant qualities, granite doesn’t blister; it’s also unlikely to scratch or chip. When used for kitchen countertops, it’s far superior to marble, synthetic and laminate. It’s also better-looking and has a luminous, dimensional quality when polished.

What is a P-trap? Charlotte plumber Paul Mesiti tells us.

10 Sep , 2016  

p-trap

Member Paul Mesiti recently educated the CRESN group about how a P-trap works.

A P-trap is a plumbing fixture that has several purposes. It traps debris that has drained from the sink and prevents it from forming a clog deep within the plumbing system, and to stops sewer gases from passing into the home. It is this back flow prevention that prevents sewer gas from escaping into the house. Sewer gas can contain many noxious odors which at the least, may smell like rotten eggs and at their worst, can be explosive and poisonous. The traps installed in the plumbing lines help to form a barrier of water within the P-trap. At the bottom of the “P” is a small cleanout tap that can be used to remove clogs the P-trap has contained.
