Winter in the High Plains of Texas

   It’s the first week of November and we have a good 4-5 inches of snow under our belts already!  That tells us that we will more than likely get more snow and winter isn’t even officially here.  So, we were thinking of the top items that your heater is not warming your home as it should, and it seems it is working way too hard to keep up and still not heating your home.  One item you can think about, especially in older homes is how is the insulation in the attics?   I live in a 56-year-old home.   It needed some love and we decided to purchase it and fix it up.   After several 1000’s of dollars we thought we were good.  Ahh but we had an electrician up in the attic and he said there was less than four inches of insulation in the attic in some places none.  That got fixed quickly, now we don’t have those cold rooms inside anymore.  Oh, by the way, Adam’s Air does insulation!  Here are a few other items you need to be aware of and think about.

  • We do Winterization for free if you own your home.  It’s a 20-point check list of important items to make sure that when you do turn your heater on, it comes on and works and warms your home properly
  • Carbon Monoxide poisoning is deadly.  It is colorless, odorless, and tasteless.  It’s a silent killer. It is produced by the burning of gas, wood, propane, charcoal, or other types of fuel via combustion engines, appliances, or heating systems, it kills 400 people a year.  Every home should have at least two detectors with fresh batteries.
  • A simple item, and it’s the one of the easiest items that you the homeowner can do.  CHANGE THE FILTER!!!!!  When a filter is clogged it can break down the flow of heat and air and your system works overtime to make sure your home is comfortable.
  • How old is your thermostat?  If its older than 10 years you should replace it with an efficient and newer model.  This will help regulate the air at the right temperature all the time.
  • During our inspection there could be noises coming out of your system.  Could be several items, like a clogged coil or a fan motor and wheel caked with good old West Texas dirt. We can fix this at a minimal cost.
  • Dry Air is a problem with wintertime.  Humidifiers help place moisture in the air and it would be a great item to purchase.  Also, Adam’s Air works closely with Air Oasis, with their clean air products that work and are fantastic for clean fresh air. 

We want our customers to breathe easier this winter.  We want our customers to stay warm this winter in your own home.  Call us today to schedule your Winterization.

You Only Thought it Was Thanksgiving Copy

  I was googling for a blog post about crazy Thanksgiving meals or the worst Thanksgiving fails, and I came across this article taken from Woman’s Day from about 10 years ago.  Its disgusting to say the least and the photos will go from left to right per paragraph.  Enjoy please.  Most people only enjoy one Thanksgiving feast each year. But those of you who simply can’t get enough may want to try one of the unique eats below. From pumpkin fortune cookies to turkey gravy and cranberry cupcakes, here are eight unusual items that capture the essence of the Thanksgiving table.

Tofurky & Gravy Soda

If you’re a big soda drinker who loves Thanksgiving dinner, then your wildest dreams have come true. Jones Soda Co., which is famous for its limited-edition holiday concoctions, rolled out Tofurky & Gravy Soda this season. Based on the vegetarian Thanksgiving meal, the Tofurky flavor is vegan-friendly and sugar-free. (This isn’t the first time Jones has embraced Turkey Day flavors. In 2004, the company offered a five-pack of sodas that included the following flavors: Green Bean Casserole, Mashed Potato & Butter, Fruitcake, Cranberry and last—but certainly not least—Turkey & Gravy.)

Turkey Dinner Layer Cake

Foodie and Chow.com contributor Amy Wisniewski created the ultimate one-stop Thanksgiving meal. What looks like a cake is actually alternating layers of stuffing and ground turkey mixed with instant oatmeal, “frosted” with mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, and topped with lightly browned mini marshmallows. Sure, it may seem appealing at first glance, but we think we’ll stick with compartmentalizing our food. Photo courtesy of Chow.com

Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts

Now here’s something we can sink our teeth into! Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts has released its latest limited-edition flavor: Frosted Pumpkin Pie, available through mid-December. The baked breakfast pastry is filled with a sweet mixture of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and clove, and finished with iced frosting and autumn-colored sprinkles. Photo courtesy of Pop-Tarts

Pumpkin Pie Fortune Cookies

If you’re feeling lucky this Thanksgiving, try these pumpkin pie–flavored fortune cookies from Fancy Fortune Cookies. Made with real pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, the cookies come covered in dark, milk or white chocolate and contain one of five custom fortune cookie messages inside. Not only do they sound delicious, but they make the perfect gift for guests or your Thanksgiving host! Photo courtesy of FancyFortuneCookies.com

Turkey Gravy Cranberry Cupcake

If you enjoy savory-sweet combinations, this cupcake is for you! Made by Los Angeles–based Yummy Cupcakes, the treat features a turkey-flavored cake that’s baked with savory turkey gravy, filled with cranberry relish and topped with cranberry cream cheese. The boutique bakery didn’t stop there—it also dreamt up three other unique Thanksgiving flavors: Marshmallow Yam, Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie. Photo courtesy of Yummy Cupcakes

Lay’s Turkey Potato Chips

And we thought Lay’s Dill Pickle chips were unusual. This savory chip is only available in China, which is too bad, because according to a contributor at Taquitos.net: “They really do taste like turkey with gravy…It’s like combining the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner, all in one bag.”

Roasted Turkey Doritos

What’s better than roasted turkey? Roasted turkey-flavor Doritos. What’s better than roasted turkey-flavor Doritos? Roasted turkey–flavor Doritos in the shape of a Christmas tree, of course! Though these festive snacks aren’t available in the U.S., you can easily find them in Taiwan. Photo courtesy of Scott Kleinberg/RedEye

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy Jelly Beans

For a quick taste of Thanksgiving dinner, give these little jelly beans a whirl. Part of the unusual Harry Potter Bertie Bott’s Jelly Beans Bag, the Mashed Potatoes and Gravy beans are just two unusual flavors in a mix that includes everything from ketchup to sausage. Although weirdly tasty on their own, the potatoes and gravy combined will give you the full holiday effect.
