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.
