With the help of a high-powered, 48-inch fan, Clean Air America, Inc.'s truck-mounted vacuum system extracts dust, dirt, and allergens out of ventilation systems at a rate of 16,000 cubic feet of air per minute. To put that in perspective, traditional portable or truck-mounted vacuums muster between 400 and 4,000 cubic feet per minute on a good day. Before each session, technicians send an infrared camera into the ductwork to map out every inch of dust or reveal enclaves of ninjas hiding there. Then they move in with special brushes and scrubbing tools, leaving homes with cleaner air and fewer odors.
The efficiency experts at WeatherKing Heating and Air Conditioning drag domestic climate systems into the digital age with high-tech gadgetry. WeatherKing's techs, armed with meticulous training and science, deploy to homes to help clients work out cost-effective, convenient ways to keep living spaces comfortable. Rather than outright replacing furnaces, air conditioners, or barbecue pits filled with old newspaper, techs take the time to run through options that might include introducing an existing furnace to a touchscreen thermostat that's synced with WiFi to monitor energy output.
The staff also keeps homeowners breathing easy. Duct cleaning seeks out and eradicates mold and allergens stationed in vents, and heat-recovery ventilators purify musty in-home air, redirecting it back into the heating system and recycling up to 84% of otherwise wasted energy. The company’s motto—“We treat you the way we want our own family to be treated”—undergirds each of its services. To this end, dispatchers man phones 24 hours a day, at the ready to send out crews to replace furnaces, subdue burst pipes, or disperse the gang of mermen that have taken over the guest bathroom.
Keith Heating & Cooling, Inc.'s technicians call their service trucks "warehouses on wheels." Each one carries a stock of parts so extensive that repairmen complete more than 97% of their jobs with supplies right off the truck. That kind of service typifies the approach of Keith Heating & Cooling's HVAC specialists, whose services range from heating-system repairs to removal of foreign spies in air ducts. Factory-trained in all major brands including Trane, Bryant, and Lennox, technicians adhere to up-front pricing so homeowners feel comfortable before each job begins. They’ll also fix or replace any equipment that breaks down the same season it was installed with same-day service.
Growing up in Las Vegas, Dr. Raymond Frye found himself drawn to bling at a young age. After training in general dentistry in Oregon, he decided to return to that youthful love of all things sparkly by imbuing his clients' teeth with an otherworldly glimmer. To that end, he created Bling Dental Products and launched a series of cosmetic-dental products such as the in-home Icing teeth-whitening kit, the Diamond ultrasonic toothbrush with UV sanitizer, and Shazzam teeth-whitening strips. Embarking on several projects, such as his pro-bono work in Brazil, Dr. Raymond's creations form an arsenal against dullness that aided in the gifting suite at the 2012 Academy Awards and help non-celebrity clientele flash a smile to gain entry to exclusive clubs and temporarily blind bouncers at movie-award ceremonies.
For more than 35 years, dentists at American Dental Centers have polished pearly whites and prevented dental disease with thorough exams. At each of the 14 locations that dot Northern and Central Ohio, patients walk in or schedule appointments so they don’t have to scrape off plaque using chew toys. The center maintains a 24-hour phone line so that patients can arrange to have emergencies treated as soon as possible, and it also offers a Forever White program, in which patients pay a one-time fee and then receive take-home bleaching treatments for as long as they attend their regular three- or six-month check-ups.
Though the orangey wisps that rise over Tiger Air’s service van are meant to pay homage to the company’s namesake animal, they also resemble flames, which are a much better representation of the company’s area of expertise. The trained technicians deploy to homes and commercial spaces, handily tuning furnaces and air conditioners from an extensive list of brands that includes Ducane, Whirlpool, Lennox, and Amana. As they complete their checks, they run through a series of questions—Are the electric connections secure? Is there duct leakage? Have dust bunnies surveyed the space for development?—that can improve the equipment’s efficiency and subsequently cut energy costs. The staff also aims to educate clients on the latest products to improve their home’s air quality, such as humidifiers, filters, air cleaners, and UV lights.
