Matthew Stewart - Sunday, July 07, 2013

At 72 Degrees, we want you to be 100% satisfied with our technicians. That’s why we make sure they are approved with the Technician Seal of Safety, which means you can be sure that the safety of you and your family is maintained.

When a technician wears this seal, that means he has been drug tested, background checked, and professionally trained. It’s a symbol you can trust.

We guarantee the best service and repair experience provided by men with impeccable integrity. Contact us to make an appointment today.

Happy Independence Day

Matthew Stewart - Monday, July 01, 2013

The 4th of July is coming up this Thursday and is a very special holiday to us at 72 Degrees. It has been a federal holiday in the U.S. since 1941 and represents the signing of the Declaration of Independence after the American Revolution.

Ever since, Independence Day has come to symbolize patriotism and freedom, celebrated by fireworks, parades, barbecues, baseball games, family, friends, and thankfulness for our country.

Whatever your plans may be this 4th of July, take a moment to consider our reason for celebration in the first place. From all of us at 72 Degrees, we’d like to wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day!

Celebrating Memorial Day

Matthew Stewart - Saturday, May 25, 2013

In many minds, Memorial Day signifies the start of summer, lounging by the pool, barbeques, and good times with friends and family. But as the holiday approaches quickly, Monday to be exact, take the time to remember the original reason for Memorial Day: celebrating and honoring those who gave their lives in military service to our country.

Whether you plan to travel for the weekend or spend time with loved ones in your own backyard, make an effort to show your support for those who have served and still serve this country in the military.

72 Degrees wishes everyone a happy and fun-filled Memorial Day!

Asthma Awareness Month

Matthew Stewart - Monday, May 13, 2013

If you’ve been outside at all in the past few weeks, you know the meaning of the word “allergies.” May is prime allergy time, and it also just happens to be Asthma Awareness Month too.

But the air inside your home can trigger plenty of allergies and asthma spells as well. Things like dust mites, mold, and fungus can make your head start to spin.

Don’t let these seasonal allergens get you down, especially if you’re already prone to asthma attacks. 72 Degrees can help in areas such as Air Filtration Systems, Duct Cleaning and Sealing, Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers, and your Carbon Monoxide Detector.

Contact us if you’re in need of any of these services, and don’t let asthma get the best of you this month (or any month).

Air Quality Awareness Week

Matthew Stewart - Thursday, May 02, 2013

It’s Air Quality Awareness Week, and that means it’s the perfect time to learn about why air quality is so important and what you can do to help make it better.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the two most common air pollutants in the U.S. are the ozone and particle pollution. Even though you can’t see pollution all the time, it has the potential to hazardously affect your health. And don’t be fooled — air pollution doesn’t just occur in big cities. It’s a rural problem too.

But, there are steps you can take to help improve air quality. You can start a School Flag Program, which improves air quality awareness. You can also take the time to think about how you personally might be able to lower your air pollution contribution. You can turn your lights off more, carpool to work, or even fill your gas tank during cooler hours in the summer.

The folks at 72 Degrees also want to help improve air quality especially in your home, whether new or old. We want to make sure your home isn’t locking in allergens or producing excessive moisture. Air duct cleaning and sealing can remove contaminants and keep your home’s air healthy.

Contact us today to request a free in-home air quality consultation and start making your air quality better.
