Coats for Kids 2017

Start saving those winter coats from last year!   Winter months are on the horizon and will be here soon.   Don’t throw away any coats that are too small for your kids!  We accept gently used or new coats and jackets.  All donations stay in our own community and help children in our area.

Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning is proud to join Kiss Country (KSKS 93.7 FM) and the Salvation Army as a collection location for the 2017 Coats for Kids drive.  Each year the community and local businesses work with the Salvation Army to collect gently used or new winter coats to keep kids warm in the cold winter months.

For more than 30 years this campaign has brought together organizations, schools, businesses and members of the community with the single goal to donate to children in need.    Kiss Country has been part of Coats for Kids in the Central Valley for more than 20 years.   Their efforts to bring this issue and coat drive to the forefront, has made a real difference in the lives of so many young children.

We are open to the public as drop off location for coats Monday – Friday from 8am-5pm.   We encourage our customers and members of the community to get involved and help keep the kids in our Valley warm.  Our goal is to help collect hundreds of coats in the hope that no child will have to be cold!


Please come out to the Purl’s office here: KISS Country and Purl's Sheet Metal helps out needy kids in Madera CA by collecting coats and jackets every year. Help out needy kids in Madera CA by donating coats and jackets.

hands-opening-heating-cabinetIt looks like we’re going to enjoy a warm—or at least moderately cool—Thanksgiving here in the Central Valley. We can’t expect this to last, of course. By the end of December, the heating systems in our homes will be working regularly, and they’ll keep up their hard work through until April.

The takeaway from this is that you still have time left to have major problems with your heating system fixed before the heater gets down its the hard winter work. And, if you haven’t yet scheduled regular fall maintenance for your heating system, it’s still fall and not too late to have it done. Simply put, you shouldn’t miss your heating maintenance for the year. It’s better late than never, and right now it’s definitely not too late.

Electronic Ignition in a Furnace: Why It’s Better Than a Pilot Light

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

inside-a-gas-furnaceIf you’ve had the same furnace in your home for many years, you’re probably accustomed to it having a pilot light. If you have newer furnace, or you’re planning on having one installed in the near future, it probably doesn’t use a pilot light at all. Instead, an electronic ignition system ignites the burners. In fact, you rarely see standing pilot lights on newly manufactured furnaces anymore. Why did this change happen? Let’s take a look.
