The Path of Least Resistance

The Path of Least Resistance

In this video, our owner and founder Larry Sinn talks about how different things flow to the path of least resistance.

Water

Growing up on a farm in Kansas, Larry first learned about the path of least resistance. His family had a soaker hose that they would lay on the ground. The water in the hole closest to the source was fifteen feet tall, and the water at the end of the hose was fifteen inches tall.

Electricity

When Larry started in the home repair business, he cut into a live wire. He learned quickly and painfully that electricity flows to the path of least resistance.

Air

In the early 1990s, Five Star was trying to figure out why the heating and air systems they were creating for homes didn't work. Then, Larry realized that air flows to the path of least resistance. If you are sending air through duct work, not all of it is going to get to the other side if you have holes (duct leaks) along the way. The air is going to flow through the first hole it reaches. Therefore, I realized we had to seal the leaks if we were going to provide our customers the comfort and value they were seeking.

People and Money

A financial advisor once told me that people flow to the path of least resistance. They take the easiest options that are directly in front of them are the first ones they will pick. Money will also flow to the path of the least resistance.

If you want to live in a healthy, comfortable, energy efficient home, you can't take the path of least resistance. For more information, just call Larry! We want to show you how to fix your home so that it works better.
