The air experts at One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating are available 24 hours a day to repair or replace HVAC systems and perform a host of other services. During cool months, they arrive with trucks full of thousands of specialty parts when they look over heaters, aiming to solve the problem on the first call. They inspect and install air conditioners in the summer, making sure to weigh the efficiency of repairing an older model compared to installing a new unit or fashioning a unique one out of discarded candy wrappers.

This declaration of resignation, as Greg Bell's aunt pointed out back when he founded his business in 2000, was the common denominator among homeowners who were never able to find time to complete their lists of home improvements and repairs. As it happened, this group of time-thwarted homeowners was just Greg's target market, so he dropped his business's original name, "Greg Bell, Handyman," in favor of the cleverly anonymous, Mr. Somebody. Nowadays, supported by a team of handpicked handymen, Greg undertakes a range of remodeling and repair services. However, his success means that he can no longer hide behind the blank moniker, as his customers often refer to him glowingly by name on the consumer review aggregator Angie's List, where he also won a Super Service Award in 2011.

Rodriguez, a fearless contractor with a background in aerospace engineering and professional work with the U.S. Navy and Air Force. "No job is too big," he says and pushes the big red button. The ground rumbles, the gates lift, and his cadre of highly trained fixer-uppers swoops in and restores order to all facets of household catastrophe. While mending the roof, a skilled technician can repair a bent gutter or save a frightened tree limb from the evil meowing of a stuck kitten. Drains unclog and electrical wires cease malfunction. If time remains after raking leaves or removing a felled branch, homeowners can request a tech's meticulous re-glazing services to overhaul a vintage bathtub or an especially meaningful donut.
