Are you planning some great Summer time vacations? When you leave for that trip out of the country or take the kids to Disney Land for the weekend, don't leave your floor sweltering in the heat. When you leave your house for an extended period of time, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT turn off the Air Conditioner in your house. Some species of wood can shrink up to a 1/4"! It is okay to turn the thermostat up 4 to 5 degrees, but that is it. You will save yourself thousands of dollars in repair costs.
