Just in case you hadn’t noticed, when you exchange your 20# Propane Cylinder at an exchange cage, you only get 15# of propane. When you come to our fill station you get 20# of propane. In addition, our price is usually less than that of an exchange cylinder.

If you are over fifty years of age you may have noticed difficulty in reading small print or being able to thread a needle. These changes are a result of natural aging. The eyeball experiences several changes as we age. Some changes we may be able to correct with corrective lenses and others we may not be able to correct. People over fifty require about twice the amount of light that someone twenty years old would require to see the same thing.
When most builders construct homes for resale they don’t spend a lot of money on the lighting. They have to compete against other builders for your business so they don’t always consider the possibility that the person buying a new home has special needs when it comes to lighting.
You as a home owner need to know that older people need more lighting for reading, doing tedious tasks, and distinguishing colors. Adding task lighting and accent lighting in an existing home can be accomplished by professional electricians. It can make all the difference in the way you see things, as well as making your home more beautiful to the people that see it.
Please do yourself a favor and contact the knowledgeable people at Total Comfort, Electrical Division to find out what we can do for you. Our years of experience in home lighting and electrical wiring will put you at ease in knowing you have made the right decision.

In an e-newsletter from the Eaton Certified Contractors Network it was reported that according to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), each year approximately 2,400 children are treated from shocks and burns after inserting items into slots of electrical receptacles.* To prevent these types of injuries, the National Electrical Code (NEC) now requires Tamper Resistant Receptacles (TRRs) in all new and renovated homes.
What does this mean? Well, TRRs are now required for all 15A-20A, 125V and 150V outlets lower than 5 ½ feet above the floor. TRRs can be installed in kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms, garages, outdoors, and basically anywhere a traditional outlet could be found. Some common causes of receptacle injuries include inserting hairpins, fingers, keys, and paper clips – TRRs can help your homeowners prevent these types of injuries.
*Statistics taken from ESFI’s “Safety from the Inside: TRRs” post.
