Hooray for National Grandparents Day

Matthew Stewart - Monday, September 09, 2013

Yesterday, the first Sunday after Labor Day, was National Grandparent’s Day! After all, grandparents do so much for us, so it only seems fitting to honor them in this way. They give us love, wisdom, and hugs that only a grandparent can give.

This special holiday was created in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter and has stuck ever since. Let's keep the spirit of this day alive all year and show them how much they mean to us every day. 

From all of us at 72 Degrees, we wish all the grandparents out there a joy-filled year!

Air Quality Awareness Week

Matthew Stewart - Thursday, May 02, 2013

It’s Air Quality Awareness Week, and that means it’s the perfect time to learn about why air quality is so important and what you can do to help make it better.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the two most common air pollutants in the U.S. are the ozone and particle pollution. Even though you can’t see pollution all the time, it has the potential to hazardously affect your health. And don’t be fooled — air pollution doesn’t just occur in big cities. It’s a rural problem too.

But, there are steps you can take to help improve air quality. You can start a School Flag Program, which improves air quality awareness. You can also take the time to think about how you personally might be able to lower your air pollution contribution. You can turn your lights off more, carpool to work, or even fill your gas tank during cooler hours in the summer.

The folks at 72 Degrees also want to help improve air quality especially in your home, whether new or old. We want to make sure your home isn’t locking in allergens or producing excessive moisture. Air duct cleaning and sealing can remove contaminants and keep your home’s air healthy.

Contact us today to request a free in-home air quality consultation and start making your air quality better.
