Winter is coming!!!
Like it or not friends the cold weather is here and the furnaces are kicking in. Did you know that NW Natural Gas provides free inspection of all gas appliances at your home or business?
Just call to schedule. Find more details here.
I recommend that you schedule to have safety inspections on gas equipment (stoves, furnaces, fireplaces) once a year to help keep your equipment running at peak efficiency. The annual inspection is offered by NW Natural as part of their customer service, so there is no extra charge for the visit. Who doesn’t love FREE!
What’s included in the inspection?
Ps: Thanks to all that texted and emailed with condolences over that horrible Michigan State Loss this weekend. Putting it behind me and hoping for some better games soon!
