It was supposed to be an ordinary day of shopping for Dan Wolt. But at some point between flipping through hangers and carrying duds to the fitting room, a cartoon light bulb materialized above his head. "Buying windows," he said, as the idea alchemized in his brain, "Should be as simple as buying clothes from a local boutique." At the time, Dan was working for a window company dominated by high-pressure sales tactics and long presentations. He could tell customers felt stressed. So after his epiphany, Dan went home and founded Zen Windows, a window- and door-installing business whose signature is its relaxed, user-friendly style.
The technicians at O & W Heating and Cooling keep homes from transforming into desolate tundra or deserts in the winter and summer by maintaining heating and cooling systems of all brands. As dealers of Payne, Crown, and Rinnai systems, the team can also outfit unequipped homes with the furnaces, boilers, and water heaters necessary to not only keep rooms comfy in the winter months but to allow customers to transform their living room into a sauna. Not content to dabble only in the heating and cooling arts, techs also handle plumbing, refrigeration, and appliance repair, allowing homeowners to keep their toasters working and their nonworking toasters feeling ashamed of themselves.
Most of K Komfort's technicians and engineers draw on more than a quarter-century of experience in improving indoor air quality and lowering energy bills. Having witnessed the evolution of heating and cooling technology, the crew deftly repairs old furnaces and installs efficient, new air-conditioner systems with techniques learned in NARI continuing-education programs. HEPA-approved equipment clears ductwork of pesky particles that cause asthma, allergies, and dinnertime interruptions by nuclear physicists, and filtration systems help maintain fresh air once technicians are out of the picture. Their preferred brand is Carrier, but the service truck is stocked with a library of parts from other manufacturers so maintenance often can be completed in one visit.
Precision Lawn & Landscape’s grass whisperers improve lawn health with soil-enriching aeration services. Ideal for attaining a lush lawn year-round, aerating services tactically pluck cores from the turf’s surface to enable greater water absorption, deeper root growth, and relief from soil compaction caused by the neighborhood elephant.

Precision’s crack squad stamps a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of its services, and epilogues each grass-pampering by tidying up terraces and punching holes in strawless Capri Sun pouches.
American Heritage Fireplace's chimney technicians scour soot and finesse flues to leave home heaters clean and free of excessive soot and creosote build up. After arriving at abodes, an experienced sweep performs a visual inspection of the chimney interior and exterior, as well as any connected fireplace or wood stove. Then they’ll prep the work area to corral dust and debris and manually scrub Santa chutes with a brush perched atop a graphite rod. The sweeping process ferrets out ash, creosote, and minor clogs, such as bird nests, squirrel nests, and licorice-rope nests; an industrial vacuum devours the falling particles.
