Glass Doctor first debuted as a solitary repair shop in Seattle in 1962 and gradually expanded its base to include the more than 300 locations that now treat glass of all types, shapes, and sizes. Each outpost’s experienced technicians tackle problematic panes of all kinds, repairing or replacing glass in homes, offices, and cars with a diagnostic prowess rarely seen outside of child prodigy doctors. The experts extend their knowledge to custom projects, such as shower doors made from Alumax, CRL, and Cardinal glass, and beveled mirrors.
Bell Plumbing and Heating's highly trained technicians help customers escape Jack Frost's fury by performing comprehensive tune-ups of forced-air heating systems and boilers. Furnace authorities inspect the entire unit before cleansing the ignition system and burners and replacing filters clogged with heat-seeking Nerf missiles. Chafed motors receive a lubricating spritz of oil, and the heat exchanger undergoes a full-body exam to illuminate any heat seepage from cracks or defects. Lastly, technicians test all safety switches and test the air surrounding the system with a carbon-monoxide meter to check for traces of toxic molecules. The 45- to 90-minute service prolongs the life of heating equipment and reduces energy costs by ensuring the system heats the home efficiently instead of laboriously knitting sweaters for chilly residents.
