    What is the difference in conventional and synthetic oil?

    Conventional oil is made up of natural molecules that can vary greatly in size. Think of these molecules as a row of ball bearings all varying slightly in size to one another. This uneven row of "liquid ball bearings" can still lubricate well enough for a normal automotive production engine, but it is not the quality of synthetic. Synthetic oil, on the other hand, is made in a laboratory. All of the molecules are uniform in size, which makes for a better lubricant. Just envision the row of "liquid ball bearings" now perfectly in line, all the same size. This is a quality lubricant. That is the difference between the two choices of oil.

    When and how much tooth paste should we use?

    Prior to any baby teeth coming in, clean your child’s gums with a soft infant toothbrush or soft cloth and water. After the first baby tooth comes in, start brushing twice a day with a fluoridated toothpaste and a soft bristle, age appropriate, tooth brush. For children less than two years old use a “smear” of toothpaste to brush their teeth. For the 2-5 year old, use a “pea-size” amount of toothpaste to brush twice a day. Due to lack of manual dexterity at a young age parents may have to assist their child with brushing and flossing.

    What are the advantages of having granite?

    • Granite can withstand heat up to 1800 degrees.
    • Granite can be used as a cutting board (although we don't recommend this as it will dull your knives).
    • For those who love to bake, granite is the perfect prep surface for all your pastries.
    • With your granite counter top your kitchen will look as beautiful as the day it was installed for many, many years to come.
    • Unlike plastic counter top material, (remember the yellow Formica from the 1960's?) granite is not a "dated" counter top material. Natural stone has been used throughout the centuries and has maintained "timeless beauty".

    How efficient is a geothermal system?

    A geothermal system is more than three times as efficient as the most efficient ordinary system. Because geothermal systems do not burn fossil fuels to make heat, they provide three to four units of energy for every one unit used to power the system.
