What a way to bring in the New Year!




Electric Heater cautions: Do NOT put too many electric decices on one circuit. This can cause overload, burn the outlet, and cause the house to catch on fire, and you are responsible.

(from last month) Do you have propane in your tank?

  If your furnace is not lit, be careful when you light it: keep safe. If you don’t know how, call me(512-353-4860 or 512-757-0083) and make arrangements for service.   If you wait until the last minute and have any furnace problems, you might have to wait several hours, perhaps days, before we can get a service tech to inspect and make the necessary furnace repairs.   You will be charged any fees that are above normal fees if you wait and require this last minute service.  Be prepared in advance!!


                        Check your smoke alarm batteries monthly.  This could save your life!

If you do not have a smoke alarm. Or yours is broken, , contact our office 512-353-4860 for assistance. or

 Eric Myers at 512-757-0083    or      Joe in   34/  512-644-0790

Hello everyone!  

Since September I have been advising you to check your heating systems, smoke alarms, and fire extinguishers to be ready for the COLD weather and any possible problems. As you know, cold weather is here!!!

It will get well below freezing tonight and this weekend.


It is your responsibility to do everything you can to avoid frozen pipes &subsequent damage.  


Make sure you have propane and your heater is working safely.

Be SAFE! Call Joe (512-644-0790), or me,if you have equipment problems.

I’ve done all I can to get you ready!

And!  If   you use space heaters- which I strongly advise against- BE SAFE and careful not to over load the outlets and they can start a fire. Also, do not get children or any materials (blankets, carpets, rugs, clothing etc) close to outlets because they may catch fire.

Be sure smoke alarms are working (use batteries we gave you)

and fire extinguishers are in place.

Drip appropriate pipes inside to avoid damages that you will be responsible to pay.

 Most units have at least ONE (1) out-side faucet.   Make sure you leave it dripping during the freezing times.

It is a GREAT time  to review your Renter Insurance to cover any unexpected damages.  This insurance is cheap and easily gotten from your Automobile Insurance Carrier or other carriers

Have your Renter Insurance contact information In case you have problems.


It is your responsibilityto help avoid unnecessary ‘Emergency Calls”, especially after normal business hours. Any lack of effort on your part to prepare will result in YOU PAYINGfor any extra costs because of unnecessary ‘Emergency Calls” and repairs, starting at $125 plus !!!!

(Unnecessary means that you could/should have tried the system BEFORE it got cold, and chose not to, or something froze and broke because you did not take proper actions)   It is extremely important to live in SAFE homes, and YOU ARE PART of the team to help insure that this will happen. AND, you may be without water for DAYS until you find a plumber.



Best of luck.
