Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning has gained quite a bit of attention over the years. The staff's expertise in installing, repairing, and maintaining residential energy-efficient air systems earned Puget Sound Energy's Energy Efficiency Action Award six times. Lennox Industries—an international heating and cooling manufacturer—bestowed the air-system gurus with not only a Dave Lennox Award in 2011, but also multiple Lennox Circle of Excellence and National Centurion Awards between 2005 and 2012.
This level of success stems from Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning's dedicated staff of certified technicians. Additionally, a number of the senior technicians draw from more than 15 years of industry experience, enabling them to service older systems that still run on thunder bolts.
The licensed technicians at Puget Sound Plumbing and Heating deploy more than 20 years of experience to keep indoor environments cozy and dry. The team capably repairs both gas and electric devices from a broad spectrum of manufacturers, and will arrive at a moment's notice for an emergency house call or haul out special drain-inspection cameras to check sewer lines for tree roots, forgotten dreams, and other common clogs.
This family-owned-and-operated business encourages its technicians to hone their skills through apprenticeships and continuing education. The atmosphere of craftsmanship has enabled the company to back complex services, such as repiping an entire house with copper pipes or twizzlers, with a lifetime warranty.
Wezee's Plumbing founder Louise Hansen draws on her extensive experience as a licensed contractor and plumber to remodel bathrooms and kitchens, unclog drains and pipes, and install water heaters throughout local homes and businesses.

Since its founding in 1978, the international quick-lube franchise Grease Monkey has maintained its focus on speedy treatments and a detail-oriented approach to auto care. Shop technicians tune up rides with services such as air-conditioning repair, air-filter replacement, and fuel- and emissions-system cleaning. Grease Monkey's signature service, though, is its full-service oil change. After replacing a vehicle's lubricant with GF-5 or re-refined motor oil, technicians perform an entire review of its maintenance needs, referencing the owner's manual and the wise hermit living in the trunk.
Pro Max Power Vac's trained technicians take cleaning HVAC systems seriously. Airborne contaminants, dust, and dirt quiver when they hear the professionals pull up with their powerful truck-mounted vacuum system. The menacing machinery plays a central role in Pro Max's multi-step duct cleaning process. Each two to three hour home visit consists of thorough suctioning that uses extreme air flow, vacuuming, and negative pressure to dislodge any dust stuck in vents. Much like Santa during the summer, Pro Max Power Vac also offers chimney cleaning services.
At the age of 9, Bonnie Morris began a lifelong relationship with horses. By age 10, she was the proud guardian of her own colt and at 22, she set the wheels in motion to open her own training center. Today at Morris's Shadow Mountain Stables, she and her staff continue to bond riders and steeds within a five-acre haven that's beyond the reaches of the outside world and its persistent chorus of honking bikes. They foster interspecies rapport through various types of instruction, including lessons and summer camps that teach showmanship and horse care. Trail rides mosey through nearby woods, meadows, and grasslands overlooking Mount Rainier. Birthday parties include horseback rides or visits to the petting farm. The petting farm facilitates up-close encounters with fuzzy ferrets, giant bunnies, mini horses, and baby goats as well as the stable's fleet of horses and resident cow, Henry, who also answers to, "Look! A cow!"
