Using tests devised by the Department of Energy, AAA Heating & Air Conditioning helps homeowners isolate structural challenges that contribute to poor air quality and expensive utility bills. With a home energy and indoor air-quality audit, AAA's NATE- and BPI-certified technicians will employ vacuum pressure to identify troublesome leaks in and around walls, outlets, can lights, duct systems, and windows. After audits, AAA will furnish homeowners with a prioritized list of improvements that they can tackle on their own. For Groupon holders who are cannot-do-it-yourselfers, AAA offers a 10% discount on all recommended products or services with today’s deal.
What once began as a gerontology master’s project soon became a time-saving solution for homeowners across the country. In 2000, Spectrum founder and physical therapist Jenny Nelson became alarmed by the number of senior citizens she met with injuries caused by doing work around their homes. While pursuing her degree in gerontology, she made it her master’s project to found a care company that assisted seniors living on their own with tasks that weren’t simply health related. Soon thereafter, Spectrum Home Services was born and became Nelson’s life’s work.
By 2008, when Hal and Jeanette Fairless opened the Pacific Northwest franchise, Spectrum had grown to serve everyone, regardless of age or presence of free cake in the home. Spectrum’s original focus is still seen in its handyman services, through which techs specialize in building wheelchair ramps, installing grab bars and lifts, and performing ADA bathroom modifications. Cleaning crews come out weekly, biweekly, monthly, or as needed to tidy up living spaces, and organization specialists help remove clutter from busy lives. For local moves or seniors transferring to an alternative living facility, Spectrum’s relocation team will plan the project from start to finish.
Import Auto Center offers a clean space with an educated and straightforward approach to car repair. A synthetic blend oil and oil filter change ($24.50 value for a four-cylinder car; $27.50 value for a six- cylinder car, including tax) gets engines purring and mufflers puffing with the happy fumes of robust vehicular health.

ASK Duct Services' central-air centurions do battle with indoor air pollutants by performing thorough duct cleansings. With today's deal, ASK Duct Services will clear out up to nine registers and one return. After a complete inspection of a home's entire system, technicians cut a small access hole near the furnace to insert a 10" hose. This hungry hose is run up and down each duct and attached to a powerful vacuum, which will dislodge and then slurp up debris via high-pressure blasts from an air compressor. After technicians are done, all access holes will be resealed so that thoroughfares remain airtight, like well-burped Tupperware.
The technicians from TM Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning routinely clean carpets, wax tile floors, and clear dryer vents and air ducts of debris, helping keep homes welcoming to both owners and visitors. Using a low-moisture, truck-mounted, steam-cleaning system, the staff revitalizes stained and dirty carpets with biodegradable cleaning products that easily decompose in the earth and sometimes form cool dinosaur fossils. For tile floors, technicians apply glossy layers of protective polymer-based wax.
