He expanded The Sunny Plumber to Las Vegas in 2015 and then to Corona, California, the following year. Goodrich recently acquired two additional Las Vegas-based air-conditioning businesses, and he plans to continue expanding his brands across the Southwest. Q: How many employees do you have on staff in Las Vegas at this time? What’s the total across all your company’s locations? A: We currently are a crew of 56 in Las Vegas and are recruiting daily to get (it) up to 70 before the first 100-degree day. It warms my heart how Las Vegas has embraced our brand, beliefs and message, which have fueled our rapid growth here, especially since I am born and raised here in Las Vegas. Q: When did you acquire Las Vegas Air and Paradise Air, and how did it come about? What has been the biggest impact overall on your company since you took over these additional businesses? A: We wrapped up the Las Vegas Air and Paradise Air acquisition in November 2016.

Below, you’ll find our original post from 2016. For updated information on the 2017 scholarship opportunity from My Service Depot (now $2000!), please visit https://www.smartservice.com/smart-service-scholarship/ Are you currently attending, or plan to attend, a college, university, or trade school with the intention of pursuing a career in a field service industry? Know someone who is? Well, we have some good news: a $1000 scholarship is being offered by My Service Depot for the 2017 Spring and Fall semesters! The company, known for its Smart Service software, has chosen to offer the twice-yearly scholarship in light of the growing movement to better recognize alternative career paths after high school, as well as the chronic shortage of skilled workers. Says Creative Director Ben Yackshaw, “At My Service Depot, we feel that too much effort is spent directing young men and women to pursue traditional four year colleges and liberal arts degrees when those degrees don’t necessarily translate into good jobs for graduating students.  Meanwhile, many field service occupations that offer intellectually stimulating and well-paying work remain understaffed.” The scholarship is open to anyone who’s enrolled or planning to enroll in a skilled trades program, and  has graduated high school in the last 15 years – or will have graduated at the time of receiving the award – with a 2.5 GPA or better. All that’s needed is either a video (5 minutes or less) or written essay explaining the applicant’s interest in the skilled trades. Video is preferred “both to increase the appeal of the opportunity and to emphasize traits (affability, presentation) we feel will better serve aspiring field service professionals in their chosen field.” For full details and eligibility requirements, visit http://www.smartservice.com/scholarship.html – entries for Spring 2017 must be submitted by Thursday, November 10th, 2016! We think this is a great opportunity, and encourage everyone to spread the word!

Well if you own a gas water heater chances are that A. your heater could be leaking or B. your Gas Water Heater Pilot Light is out. The pilot light in a gas water heater is made possible by either of two devices. In older water heaters it’s called a thermocouple which is a heat sensing bulb attached to a copper capillary which connects to the fuel control valve. It produces a small electrical signal (millivolts) which allows the pilot to stay lit. In newer style water heaters the manufacturers will provide either the traditional thermocouple or a pilot generator which is a larger sized sensing bulb and instead if a copper capillary tube, they actually use shielded light gauged wires which connect to the fuel control valve and again allow the pilot to stay lit. In older water heaters thermocouples have a tendency to burn out which is not unusual, but in some cases, it may have moved out of position keeping it from sensing the heat generated by the pilot light. I’ve actually seen new water heaters having pilot outage issues because the thermocouple moved out of position while in transit. In nine out of ten cases in my experience, the Gas Water Heater Pilot Light went out because the thermocouple lost it ability to generate enough voltage to keep the pilot going.
