These days phrases like Social Distancing and Shelter-In-Place Mandates make one thing abundantly clear. We’re all going to be spending a lot of time at home. E-Learning for schools, working remotely for jobs and let’s not forget the meals, video streaming and video gaming that will take place during this time. Are you ready? Probably not! I mean, elementary school math is going to bring us all to our knees. And while Aux Home Services may not be ready to help with equation, WE’RE ALWAYS READY to meet your electrical needs. Let’s face your home’s energy level is about to get a full workout with no stretching. This is without a doubt the necessary time to make sure your electricity is running safely.
While social distancing has us spending more time in our homes, it allows us homeowners to work on home maintenance and address those pesky problems we either don’t have time to address or simply overlook with the hustle and bustle of our normally busy lives.
Did you know that a leaky faucet that drips at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year? That's the amount of water needed to take more than 180 showers!
Modern conveniences are absolutely AMAZING… until they stop working properly. So, in order for us to benefit from these wonders we need to make sure they are serviced. Just think, we don’t run our vehicles with no oil or fluids. We don’t ignore software updates to our phones or leave our laptops with outdated programs. Why? Because that would be inefficient and ineffective. But we do ignore one of our most heavily relied upon conveniences – the air conditioner. It seems you’re A/C is completely out of mind until it begins to have issues. Which if you think about it, makes no sense. I mean, those Summer days where it’s in the triple digits, the A/C is your best friend, right? I guess unless you have a pool. And if you do have a pool, where’s my invitation? We’ll get back to that later! But seriously, you want to enjoy the comfort and convenience that your air conditioner brings to your life. And to keep it that way you need it maintained. Still need some convincing? Here are a few reasons that may change your mind.
During the month of February (especially Valentine’s Day) it is expected that you show love to those you care for. Roses, fancy dinners, heart-shaped boxes of chocolate (with maybe 2 flavors that you like) are the social norms for the occasion. But what about your home? There’s so much love that happens inside each home, we often forget to perform simple maintenance that goes a long way to showing you care. Remember, it’s the little things that matter most and a pack of candy hearts just won’t do the trick. But here are 5 ways you can tell your home to “Be Mine.”
Yes, it’s wintertime. Christmas and the New Year have only just happened. Our hot, humid Alabama summers are probably the last thing on your mind. But what if I told you there was a way to prepare for them while making this current season a more comfortable one. It’s a deal too good not to consider and something we like to call “Free-Bruary”.
You see, during the month of February just purchase a new Lennox cooling system from us and you’ll get a new Lenox furnace absolutely free! Yes! You can upgrade your entire HVAC system at one time with amazing savings (usually between $800-$1500). Icing on the cake is that we are offering financing to qualified buyers. So if you’re on the fence or trying to squeeze a little more life out of your unit… remember a FREE FURNACE is a rare find.
Christmas Vacation is almost over and we know you are DONE! We happy danced with you when the elf finally went back to the North Pole and we grieved with you when Great Aunt Martha spilled her red wine on your couch as she squealed out “Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la!” We arrived as called when your husband plugged in one too many strings of Christmas Lights and blew out all the fuses in your house.
When your child thought it would be fun to let all her gingerbread men cookies go swimming in the toilet, our crew came out and fixed the clog and when your HVAC decided it was tired of switching from heat to cool to heat to cool because of our crazy Alabama weather, we showed up to repair it (and help you get your sanity back!)
We are here because that’s what we do. For over 30 years, we have shown up and we will keep on showing up to help you do life. We know you call us when there is a problem and we are honored to be your problem solvers.
2019 may have been…let’s say…trying for you, so as a parting gift we wanted to leave you with some simple tips for hosting a New Year’s Eve party. Don’t worry though-if your best friend helps you “clean up” by flushing glitter and streamers down the toilet, we will still be there to repair the mess!
Happy New Year from all of us at AUX Home Services!
A long workday followed by your evening activities and chores… makes you want to crawl into bed just thinking about it. And let’s be honest, sometimes you do! The only thing getting you through is knowing a nice warm bubble bath awaits. But what happens when that “me” time turns into “flee” time? As in you are literally hopping out of the tub or shower to escape the cold water. You start rethinking your options, that’s what. You blame the kids, your spouse, the dishwasher a washing machine. All thieves stealing just a bit of the joy you thought was waiting. But the real culprit is the limits a tank water heater places on your household. So, what if there was a way to never run out of hot water again? No this isn’t a fairytale… although there is a happy ending. It’s called a Tankless Water Heater. Here are some of the amazing benefits of this lifechanging addition.
Fall has FINALLY arrived and brought with it the dreaded cold and flu season. Parents everywhere are stocking pantries full of Lysol, vitamin C, hand sanitizer, and chicken soup. The struggle is real to keep everyone at home staying as healthy as possible. The battle is real when you are taking care of sick loved ones. You will be glad to know we have another weapon to add to your arsenal against the cold and flu fight: the Reme HALO Home Air Purifier. It will bring that extra boost to your home and help keep the dreaded viruses away. You will wish we had a purse sized one available after you read how these things work!
A comedian once said, “You know you’re old when you wake up with injuries simply because you slept weird.” Don’t get it? Just wait, you will one day! Interestingly enough that is a great way to view the current state of your furnace. It has been asleep during these warm Spring and Summer months, and in fact may have been “sleeping weird!” The only way to know for sure is to have it checked out by a professional. That’s why we consider a Fall Check Up a MUST for any home furnace. Here are a few of the main reasons to consider this service.
Think all water is the same? Nope… not even close. The truth is, tap water is different depending on your location. You’ve probably tasted or even felt a difference when you’ve visited another city. Personally, I can’t even order water when I go to the beach… JUST GROSS.
