How to ensure your HVAC system is properly venting in snowy weather

The Primex Goose-Neck Roof Vent (RV28) provides all-weather ventilation with 5 inches of additional height for snow clearance and won’t leak, crack or rust over time like metal vents do.

Power-Vee™ works great in tight spaces!

When working under sinks or in other awkward places, General’s Power-Vee is like having an extra hand.  Just squeeze the feed lever and the automatic feed grips the cable and drives it into the line.
The Power-Vee feeds and retrieves cables at up to 16 feet per minute and can handle 1/4" through 3/8" cables without any need for adjustment. Quick-change cable cartridges make cable changing clean and easy. All cables are Flexicore® which have a wire rope centre giving the cable unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility.
