John with Integrity Tree Service  brought Steven Price from the Arizona Tree Council and Donna DeFrancesco from Water Use It Wisely with him and we talk trees!

Tree of the Week:

  • Donna – She loves the Palo Blanco. It’s white bark comes off in sheets and looks similar to a birch trees bark.
  • Steve – The Pecan Tree – Great for shade and they are deciduous, so they lose their leaves in the winter, allowing the sun to warm your home. Plus, pecans are delicious!

  • Scott – He’s in the middle of upgrading his home’s energy efficiency. He’s replaced 2/3 of his window’s, added solar panels and now he’s ready for a new AC/Heating unit. He wants our recommendations…..

Recommendation – We discuss the pros and cons of a heat pump vs. gas heat vs. standard ac and heating combo units. In Tucson, call Intelligent Design Air Conditioning & Heating.

Tip: Buying propane in bulk when it’s cheaper, during the off-season will save you money. In Northern Arizona, call Dave at Barrett Propane)

Romey’s Digital Newsroom:

  • Susan – Wanted to know what we think of reusable air filters for her ac/heating unit?

Recommendation – Probably not….some situations call for the reusable filter, but in virtually every situation a simple 1 inch pleated paper filter that is replace monthly. Clogged filters “choke” your intake on the ac/heating unit, making it work harder than it should.

(Tip: A nice rule of thumb, replace the filter every time you pay your monthly utility bill)

  • Kurt – He wants to string Christmas lights, but needs to know if he can step on his tile shingle roof and where, the peaks or valley’s?

Recommendation – Avoid stepping on them if at all possible, but if he has to, step in the valley’s not the peaks.

  • Paul – He wants to know how to attach lights to his parapet wall?

Recommendation – Use a “parrot clip” that is designed for his exact situation!


  • Annette – She has a sewer break under the slab of her home and wants to know what we think of the trench-less pipe replacement?

Recommendation – This sounds like a perfect fit for her…..go for it! Call Stampede Plumbing.
