What a wonderful thing to get a five star "exceptional, a RARE find" review such as this one... and just before the Thanksgiving holiday.  
It put a warm smile on our faces and is a fantastic reminder for all of us to also say 'Thank YOU'!

We can make a dirt floor look good... Notice our condensate drain in hard PVC pipe anchored to the floor even on an economical installation- that's one more reason we can say QUALITY workmanship!

We were not only honored, but had a lot of fun installing a Lennox furnace and Honeywell t-stat for Roy and Nancy Helms Saturday, Oct 3rd 2015~  All at no cost to them.

This is a program we became involved with because it was not necessarily income based.  We truly believe that many deserving people never ask for anything or might not qualify on paper but could use a lift so that they can keep lifting others.  The program is called 'Heat UP Wisconsin' and on October 3rd over 100 furnaces were installed, for free to deserving people, and this year the program had over 400 applicants!

Our local recipient Roy Helms, who is not only a veteran but, according to the local American Legion Cooke Fuller Post 70, "Roy has done more for the American Legion and veterans in our area and more than any man can possibly give or be expected to give, and then gives more".  He and his wife live very modestly and yet have financially sacrificed to our veteran programs.  Giving much of their time to the Veterans home in King, Camp Legion and Roy is also a Legion Rider. In short we installed a furnace to an American Legionnaire at no charge and we loved it.

All applicants submitted forward will be submitted as candidates for 2016.  The programs complete details can be found on the site www.heatupwisconsin.com<http://www.heatupwisconsin.com/>

We have the sincere HONOR to announce the recipient of the Heat UP Wisconsin Lennox furnace and Honeywell thermostat installed by us at no cost.

We feel that so often the most deserving people don't ask for anything or might not qualify financially on paper but could really use a lift so they can keep lifting others. We are so excited about our local recipient ROY HELMS who is not only a veteran but, according to the local American Legion Cooke Fuller Post 70, "Roy has done more for the American Legion and veterans in our area and gives more than any man can possibly give or be expected to give and then gives more".

His wife Nancy is ahhhhmazing herself, they both live very modestly and yet have financially sacrificed to our veteran programs and given many hours of their time not limited to Badger Boys/Girls, raising money (millions) for scholarships, aiding homeless veterans and honoring our fallen with honor guards - this he does while working full time.

I sat at their table in awe listening whole heartedly to their story, their eyes tearing when sharing details of those that have influenced their decisions to keep these programs going. We are truly lucky to have the opportunity to give back to these hard working, inspiring people. Thank you Roy and Nancy Helms for all you do, this furnace is very well deserved.

What does the MERV rating actually mean on a filter?  It is not as fun a subject as Verve's new mascot dude "Merv" ~but in short it stands for 'how effective is my filter', Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value .   Generally a higher value MERV rating equates to finer filtration, meaning fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants can pass through the filter. But more MERV might not always be better for YOUR system... too constrictive filter on a system not designed for the higher efficiency can actually be just as inefficient as a dirty filter and stress the equipment out or freeze up your a/c condenser.  A higher MERV also means you need to change your filter at minimum of 3 months because it will clog sooner than an inexpensive fiberglass filter which allows everything through but the really big particles.  In our filters you can actually see the difference between a box-store MERV 11 and our MERV 11 on a typical Aprilaire & Spacegard 2200/2250 - we are proudly NOT the same as a box store.  

We can install a system that brings in fresh air while continuously filtering your home with a high MERV rating and place reminders on your thermostat to change the filter, how cool it that?!

*as a fun fact, filters were initially installed to protect the equipment and not to filter the air, we can all breath easier with this advancement in HVAC features.
