Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

tools-on-ac-unitWe place a special emphasis on regular air conditioning maintenance during the spring. There’s no better way to protect your investment in your HVAC equipment and ensure a long service life. Maintenance also helps keep your air conditioning system running at high efficiency and with reduced chances of breaking down suddenly during a hot day.

We’d like to explain in more detail exactly ­why maintenance is so essential. To do that, we’re going to list some of the ways that lack of maintenance creates trouble for an air conditioner. Explaining to people that “wear and tear” is bad news for an AC only tells part of the story. Actually showing people what this wear and tear is and what it does gets to the heart of the necessity of annual air conditioning system maintenance.

Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning Barbeque Smokers

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Friday barbeques are a tradition at Purl’s Sheet Metal. Our team of employees, customers and invited guests enjoy the weekly Friday lunch at our Madera office. Every week there is something different on the menu. After searching for a BBQ smoker, we decided to fabricate our own. What started as a passion to create the best “smoked” meats for our weekly lunch, quickly turned into a prototype for a new barbeque smoker. (Lasagna in the smoker is a Purl’s Friday lunch favorite!)
The food from our BBQ smokers was so delicious, our employees and our customers started asking to order one for their personal use. After much testing and sampling of great meals, we came up with a well-designed smoker.

Take Advantage of Spring with a New AC System Installment

Monday, May 1st, 2017

air-conditioning-system-grill-top-downRight now we’re enjoying lovely weather here in the Central Valley. Not too hot, not too cold. It’s just what you expect from the middle of spring.

But spring also is a warning that things are going to heat up soon. Summer isn’t far off, and this is the right time to have preparations to see that your air conditioning system is in prime shape for the work to come. Change the filters, give the AC a test run, and most important of all, contact us to schedule your annual air conditioning maintenance tune-up and inspection.

But since no air conditioning system can last forever, this might be the season when the work you arrange with our HVAC technicians is an AC replacement. No problems! It’s a bigger job, but one we’ve been handling for decades. Our experts know how to find the best new air conditioner to meet your needs, size it accurately, and have it in place fast so you’re ready for whatever heat comes your way.

And it’s best not to delay the job if this is the Year of the Replacement. Spring is the right time.
