When Mauder's licensed and insured technicians arrive, it could be beneath a bright sun or a luminous moon. That's because they're available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for calls to homes and small businesses. They draw on more than 20 years of experiencetwo of which were spent with the wild air conditioners of Badlands National Parkas they examine HVAC systems, draft free estimates, install high-efficiency Carrier furnaces, and back their work with a satisfaction guarantee. When they aren't making repairs or helping with renovation or construction projects, they rig homes with geothermal systems to reduce energy costs and preserve natural resources.
Mike and Terry Williams compare heaters to cars, pointing out that the average Toledo heater runs for more than 1,800 hours each year—if a car was driven for that long, it could log more than 100,000 miles. Drivers keep their cars running smoothly through regular oil changes and general maintenance, yet many homeowners fail to invest in similar care for their home heating equipment. These are habits Mike and Terry hope to change, as they have learned that preventative measures such as annual tune-ups are the easiest way to keep costly heating and cooling systems operating smoothly.
The company's team of licensed, bonded, and insured technicians maintain old equipment and outfit homes with new heaters from brands such as Trane and Carrier. Beyond heating and cooling, they also work with water heaters and electrical equipment, installing whatever make or model of equipment that will prove most energy efficient for a particular home, commercial space, or upscale doghouse.
U-Vary Aire's instruction takes place in an FAA-certified Cessna 150H, a two-seater with just enough room for one instructor, one student, and one great big squealing spirit of adventure (click here and search for the Cessna 150H aircraft owned by U-Vary Aire owner and instructor Frank Ujvari to view the certification). At the start of the instructional session, students will learn from the ground about pre-flight plane-inspection techniques and read over an earth-bound syllabus of the training program. After becoming fully acquainted with safety and procedure, the flying commences. The 20- to 30-minute flight includes guidance from an experienced instructor on flying straight, leveling, banking, turning, and landing. Students will also be educated on the control panel and tower communication. The total program usually lasts around one hour.
