About us

knowtheflo.com started with one simple goal:

We wanted to make the world of home comfort easy to understand and empower everyday people living everyday lives with the ability to make the right choices and take control of their home comfort.

Doing our bit for the planet

Our team here at knowtheflo.com would love to make a difference on this planet.

We both love the outdoors and are aware of the struggles that our planet currently faces. We want our families to be able to experience all the beautiful things this planet has to offer so we decided to do our bit.

We have decided to donate 5% of all earnings from our website to https://www.rainforesttrust.org/

While we are not swimming in a sea of gold coins like Scrooge McDuck every little bit helps, and looking forward to contributing more in the future. (See below for our contributions receipt each month)

Our story

The Beginning

It all began in 2016…
When the decision was made to start this blog, I had no idea that technology and gadgets would blow up in the way that it has over the past decade.

Technology in the home is increasing and is becoming more popular than ever before.

There are not many days that go by without some new tech that comes out to make our life and home more simple and comfortable.

Our Mission

With this surge in new technology and gadgets, it’s more important now than ever that we can get good advice without all the background noise.

There are plenty of people who would look to make a quick buck at the expense of providing false information which is why from the very beginning this site has been all about making sure people are given the information they need to make informed and research-backed decisions.

The entire survival of our site depends on it.

This is why we try and provide the most accurate and truthful information we can.

We WANT you to come back, and the only way to do this is by providing information that genuinely helps.

Things have changed a bit since the beginning.

From what started as a simple hobby project, the site has grown massively, all thanks to our readers support.

The team here at knowtheflo.com has grown in order to provide even higher-quality, and accurate information to help with your heating, cooling and home comfort needs.

We invite you to look around and get to know the site, we think you will enjoy what you find!
