The impending winter weather reminds me that we need to be as prepared as possible. I hope that the message of Shop Lake Gaston 1st is hitting home when you are thinking of preparing your home and yourself for cold, icy conditions.
Whether your heating system operates on gas or electricity, there are plenty of Lake Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce members ready to serve you. We are blessed in this region to have Dominion Power, Duke Energy, Halifax Electric Membership Corporation, Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative, Progress Energy and Roanoke Electric Cooperative providing electricity to “light the lake,” keep us warm and our appliances running. Our gas and oil companies like AAA Gas & Appliance, Daughtridge Gas Company, New Dixie Oil Corporation, Newsom Oil & Gas Company, and Parker Oil Company provide the means to heat our homes, as well as prepare meals in times of power outages due to ice.
We want to make certain that our heating systems are functioning properly. Use a service technician in the Lake Gaston region like AirBoss Heating and Cooling, Comfort Zone Heating and Air, Price’s Refrigeration & Heating Service, and Southern Comfort Heating & Cooling. Their trained staff can keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter as efficiently as possible. Of course, if your home isn’t well insulated, then your home won’t be heated properly. Call Smith Insulation to keep your home wrapped in warmth.
Make sure that there are no dangerous limbs overhanging your home or power lines. Contact Northstar Industries for tree trimming services or check with other home maintenance services like Bobby Talton Lawn Services, Comfort Zone Handyman Services, Corey’s Lawn Service, Eagle Landscaping and Lawn Care, P&P Home Maintenance, Philip Lawn Care & Landscaping Services, Top Gun Enterprises or WJ’s Lawn Maintenance and Landscaping to see if they trim trees as well. You might also want to trim back larger shrubs and protect certain plants from freezing temperatures.
If something happens to your home, don’t forget to call your insurance company. There are many wonderful insurance agents in the Lake Gaston region ready to serve you – Accounting Etc., A.M. Newsom Agency, Farm Bureau Insurance of Halifax County, Maddrey Insurance Agency, Nationwide Insurance-O.L. Meek, Roanoke Valley Insurance & Financial Services, State Farm Insurance-Chris Canady, Triangle Financial Group, Virginia Asset Management, and Watkins Insurance Agency.
