Many home owners think they are equipped to install a home heating unit on their own as a do-it-yourself project, but gas line specialists agree that only a professional should work with gas lines.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
Charlotte plumber, David Parker of ER Plumbing Services, knows winter heating safety isn't something to take lightly. Few people know this, but improper usage of traditional fireplaces and/or the improper installation of gas logs put homeowners at risk for fires, injury and/or damage to the home. Many home owners think they are equipped to install a home heating unit on their own as a do-it-yourself project, but gas line specialists agree that only a professional should work with gas lines.
That's why Parker has decided to educate the public on gas logs usage and installation. He's done this by providing a series of articles and resources that explain how gas fireplaces, gas logs and wood burning stoves work. The articles compare and contrast these three forms of winter heating mechanisms, examining cost, safety and practical challenges. Homeowners can read up on the various ways of heating a home and decide which method is best for their particular situation.
To promote safe evaluation and installation of heating units, Parker has also offered discounts (which can be found on his site to promote the replacement of less safe heating options with safer options. These options are eco-friendly and cost efficient, meaning they are better for the world and the consumer all at once. This initiative fits into Parker's overall goals as a small business owner since he is committed to public education and the bettering of the world as a result of his business contributions.
However, Parker realizes that most homeowners need more direction than he can provide in a blog post or article series. That's why Parker has opened up an advice column where homeowners can email or call in questions about gas logs, gas fireplaces or gas lines. Parker provides answers to specific questions, educating the homeowner and offering advice for do-it-yourselfers who might otherwise get themselves in trouble. Parker answers all questions himself, carefully examining each situation to make sure he gives sound advice that will help the individual. Both questions and advice are posted on the site so others can learn from previously-asked questions.
