In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.

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.
