20# Propane Tank
As mentioned in the last news post, propane customers need to check their bottle for the date. This will be stamped into the collar area of the tank. If your tank is 12 years or more old they have to be re-certified in order to be filled. If your bottle has two dates, one older date stamped horizontally and one newer one stamped vertically then it has been re-certified and if that newer date is less than 12 years old, we can fill that bottle. However, for those of you who have a bottle that is 12+ years old we now have a propane tank exchange center. When you bring in your old tank, we give you a new style tank with gas for $19.99. For those whom do not have a bottle we also sell our tanks out of the exchange center for $39.99.
As the nights get colder, using a gas heater can help reduce the strain on your homes furnace system. We sell wall mounted, non-vented propane space heaters with 1 or 3 bricks. We also have a heater head that screw directly into the propane cylinder. It has a built in Hi, Medium and Low regulator and an adjustable BTU of 8, 12 and 14,000 BTU/HR. It also uses a thermocouple so that if the head looses a flame the gas automatically shuts off. When used on a 20 lb propane take like the one in this post it will last between 30 and 52 hours. We also have a great HVAC crew that can come and service the furnace in your mobile home. It does not matter if it is gas or electric, Paul has been leading the HVAC crew for over 10 years and working on the HVAC crew for over 20. Please see our Contact Us page, call or come by today and let us show you our new Propane Gas Exchange Station. We also still fill propane tanks and have the same prices as listed on our Propane page.
Last reminder, we will be closed Thursday December 23rd, Friday December 24th and Saturday December 25th for the Christmas Holiday. We will also be close Thursday December 30th, Friday December 31st and Saturday January 1st for the New Year’s holiday. We wish you all a very happy holiday and safe new year.

These last few weeks we have seen the temperatures climbing here in Tuscaloosa County and they are going to keep doing so. In order to keep your home cool and keep your a/c unit as efficient as possible routine maintenance and cleaning is very important. When your a/c pulls the hot air from your home in to cool it and re-circulate, it removes most of the dust and other air pollutants. This means that you will acquire some dirt, dust and debris during normal use and even in you have a filter in a return box in your floor or in your furnace if it is a split system unit, some smaller dust and dirt passes through. This passing dust will build up on top of and between the small aluminum fins of the coil and when there is any type of restriction of the air flow it causes the unit to work harder to move the air. This can also cause your a/c to freeze up and make it stop working. Once it is frozen, you have to cut the unit off and let it thaw and in the heat of summer, it can take hours and in that time the temperature of your home will jump drastically. Our certified HVAC team will come out and do a complete inspection of your unit, clean the coil with a special coil cleaner that will dissolve any dirt and dust particles even the ones so small the eye cannot see. A clean unit is an efficient unit and in these hard economic times we know everyone needs to make their monthly bills as low as possible. Call our technician out today and see how once a dirty unit is cleaned it will cool faster, more efficient and save money on your power bill.

After a few tense days in the hospital, the owner Mr. Wilson is now home and recovering nicely. We would like to thank all of you who expressed concern and prayed for his recovery. It was truly touching how many of you noticed his absence and were genuinely concerned about his health and well-being. Although he will be recovering at home for the next week or so, he is still an important part of the business, still the owner and sole proprietor and will be back as soon as the doctor clears him. I can assure you because I speak with him often he is as anxious to get back to work as many of you are to see him back. As many of you know this is a Family ran business and we like to think of our customers as family. We are all worried about his health and well being and praying for his speedy recovery. Until he returns all of us employees are banning together to make sure we can deliver the same quality service that he has upheld for over 27 years. I would like to everyone again for the flowers, cards and just the concern shown for him. He is a very important person in our lives and I am so proud to see how important he is to so many of you.
