    In my spare time I work as a freelance writer for an online content company writing home improvement articles for several national businesses and also catalog copy for Sears’ and Kmart’s websites.
    So, for more than a year now I’ve been writing about roofing and rain gutters and HVAC systems and energy efficient windows and the pros and cons of heat pumps and solar heating.
