A/C problems are commonplace in Florida. Hey, we use them 365 days a year and in the summer, they really get a work out! The flexible duct work is very fragile, and is usually covered up with piles of blown insulation. What I typically see is a crushed duct from being stepped on by an unsuspectin...

I don't like to give my blog time to a murderer and refuse to print his name, but everyone reading this knows who I speak of. Tonight I was watching The Apprentice when a crawler came across the screen that the President was going to speak. 10:35pm on a Sunday?  I figured it was big news. The new...
