Before the invention of air conditioners, homeowners were forced to chill out by sleeping in bathtubs full of snow cones or forcing beatniks to recite poetry at them. Stay cool, daddy-o, with today's Groupon: for $54, you get a comprehensive air-conditioner or furnace tune-up from Schaafsma Heating & Cooling (a $109 value). The air-conditioner tune-up must be completed by September 30; the furnace tune-up is good until December 15.
With a tradition of in-home climate tinkering that stretches back more than a century, Schaafsma Heating & Cooling’s NATE-certified professionals continue in the footsteps of their forebears with precision air-conditioning and heating repair. The amiable staff jaunts out to any appointment equipped for battle, trading outdated wrenches and inexact dowsing rods for high-tech diagnostic instrumentation. Each system undergoes a total operational exam, as technicians clean and inspect mechanical and electrical components of the condensing unit and coil or furnace. The steady-handed HVAC surgeons analyze unit efficiency during a HeatMaxx or CoolMaxx test, inspecting proper refrigerant charge and air flow in air-conditioning units and checking for carbon monoxide leaks in furnaces. Constantly wary of causing any inconvenience, the service-savvy techs protect homeowners' floors with drop cloths and protective shoe coverings that save antique hardwoods or area rugs autographed by Lyndon Johnson. While not included with today's Groupon, Schaafsma’s techs stand ready for emergency service calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so homeowners need never want for rescue from clammy foreheads or chilled bones.
Schaafsma Heating & Cooling
Originally founded in 1905, Schaafsma Heating & Cooling endured both world wars and the Great Depression. Today, the team of technicians that carries on that legacy does so with NATE certification and training in combustion analysis and carbon-monoxide prevention. In an effort to protect their customers' properties, techs prep for each of their services by donning protective booties and reciting the Bushido code. They also offer 24-hour service in the event of an emergency.
