Endless Winter


As we shiver our way through January, I am forced to ask myself, is it always this cold this soon? The simple answer is no (not usually). We normally get to ease our way into winter but not this year. :-/  We did have a nice long fall so I guess we can be grateful for that. But fear not, Nelson’s has what you need to stay warm even in these frigid temperatures.

 If you find yourself in need of some supplemental heating or insulating supplies to chase away the cold, we have exactly what you are looking for. Nelson’s always carries electric heaters in many sizes and styles as well as propane and kerosene heaters to be used in garages and other outdoor work areas.  

 Nothing will let you know that you need some plastic window insulation, foam weather-strip or spray foam insulation quite like a few days of well below zero weather. You will then (unhappily) notice every single little draft in your home.

 Plastic windows help stop cold air from coming in and warm air from escaping. It only takes a few minutes to apply them and then stretch to a tight crystal clear finish with a hair dryer. Foam self-sticking weather strip can fill in gaps around doors and windows and spray foam insulation can be applied around pipes coming into your bathroom or kitchen, as well as any other areas where you may have gaps and cracks not easily filled any other way.  Nelson’s also carries rope caulking to fill in small gaps around windows and this can be easily removed once spring arrives. Stop in and ask one of our staff the best solution for your needs. We have so many options to help you stay warm and make the most of your heating dollars. It sure would be a shame to watch those dollars fly out the window. NOW, let’s pray for an early spring!!!!
