Have you ever watched This Old House on TV? If you have, chances are that you have already encountered Mark Schaub and his work crew from Chimney Savers. For the rest of us, there was a great chance of seeing him in action during the week of Apr 14th through 18th when he worked on replacing the liner of the chimney on our Education Building, the â€œChurch Houseâ€ as we are used to say. Please note the red trucks in front of the building and the long hose that reaches up to the chimney.
Why are we doing all of this? We do it because it is part of switching our heating system from oil to gas. This will be cheaper, environmentally more friendly, and for us easier to maintain. Hopefully, I can report to you in the next newsletter that we have retired the underground oil tank and that we are running on gas. But we will see. There is still some work to be done by Buist, Inc. before the Preferred Tank Services can move in to retire our tank.
