Snow is here and there is more cold weather to follow. Here are “must-do” winter hacks that will save you energy, time and just make life easier.
Use a window insulation kit (shown above) to eliminate drafts. Use a hair dryer to eliminate wrinkles in the plastic
Use draft blockers at the bottom of your door
Seal draft around doors and windows using weather stripping or caulking
Make sure your attic is well insulated
Make sure your vents are not blocked by furniture
Insulate your garage doors to save energy and stay warm
Try to park your car with the windshield facing east. This will cause the snow to melt and warm up your car!
If you have frozen ice on your door handles and you’re in a pinch, it can be melted off using hand sanitizer.
Cover your side mirrors with a freezer-sized Ziplock bag, zipped as far as it will go. This prevents ice from forming and keep you from spending time cleaning your mirrors.
Last, but certainly not least, if your furnace is not keeping you comfortable, give us a call and we can help. Whether it just needs an annual tune-up, a repair, or you are ready for a new one, we can help.

We always find Ramon R. To be very knowledgeable, capable, eager to do the work needed, friendly, and full of good counsel when we need to consider what work to have done.He is on time, takes measures to keep the house clean when there, and clearly communicates our service summary.He and Sears H &C have been our trusted company for years.
Updated March, 2023Our man Joel was out for our spring a/c tune up, and once again, I got a great education from him on how best to maintain our system, and how to watch for reduced performance or failing parts. Still incredibly pleased with the service and support from him and all of SHC. Best in the business!Updated May, 2021Met a new tech today (Wallace) and he was just as prompt, courteous, professional and friendly as his predecessors. SH&C hires good people and ensures they live up to the Company's high standards. They continue to earn our loyalty, year after year!+++++++++Update Sep, 2020:Have to update my last review with a more current one, because Joel T. has earned it. As part of our annual fall maintenance visit, Joel took the time to share info with me on a new add-on that, amongst other features, helps kill airborne viruses (think "COVID"!), as well as pointing out several areas in my ductwork that were leaking, thus costing us efficiency and $. This was our second visit from him, and he already feels like family. Truly, truly appreciate the quality of the people that make up SH&C. Call them; they are great!+++++++++We have been customers of SH&C for nearly 15 years and, now, two houses. Over that time, we have had regular service, emergency repairs and two sales calls with them, and have only seen three individuals! There is so much to be said for the knowledge and personal service that comes with that kind of long-term, consistent, local team. It was great to see Ramon's smiling face coming up the walk to my new house when I called for an inspection and service. It made the new place feel that much more like "home", and I was able to relax, knowing our system was in such good hands. Great, honest and timely service at very reasonable prices. This company has more than earned my repeat business.
