Toilets flush, faucets cease to squeak, and vents breathe easy after a visit from Handyman Network's crew. For more than 10 years, the fully licensed technicians have been traveling from home to home like Santa in his pre-Christmas days, fixing what needs to be fixed, building what needs to be built, and backing every service with a one-year workmanship guarantee. In addition to routine maintenance, the handymen specialize in carpentry, remodeling, painting, and other home-improvement services.
For nearly two decades, the NATE-certified technicians from Indoor Comfort Services have kept homes cozy and efficient through heating, air conditioning, electrical, and plumbing maintenance services. Homeowners can recruit the licensed-and-bonded team to deftly tune up a heater, replace air-duct filtration systems, or fix a leaky faucet that drips to the beat of “Jingle Bells” even after Christmas is over. In addition to ensuring smooth operation, each service also can save money and reduce homes’ environmental impacts by shoring up inefficient systems and preventing major breakdowns.
In 1982, brothers Jerry and Kenny Bell headed off to Arizona's Universal Technical Institute to learn the ins and outs of the HVAC field. When they came back to Elk Grove, they earned their chops at various companies while helping out with their father's new pizza parlor, Pizza Bell. In 1991, they decided to strike out on their own?two men in a pickup truck on a mission to repair and maintain heating and air-conditioning systems. Their only advertisements were flyers pasted on top of Pizza Bell boxes and willing strangers' foreheads.
They've come a long way since pizza-based advertising, employing an experienced staff of industry certified, professionally trained, background-checked and drug-tested technicians who thoroughly tune up air-conditioning units with a 30-point cleaning, calibration, and fine-tuning process. In addition to replacing heating and air-conditioning systems, their technicians can parachute to homes to inspect, maintain, and repair entire HVAC and furnace systems.
