Friday Blog 10/05/18: Whole House Fans

The summer heat had us all running our AC systems to stay cool. Another great affordable
option to cool and refresh your home is a Quiet Cool Whole House Fan. These systems are
true to their name and truly quiet. They use innovative technology to create a quiet and
peaceful environment. This provide another way to cool your home while refreshing the inside
air and cutting cooling costs. This is a very efficient system so it only takes a little time before
the house is cool and will stay this way for hours. It is best to run in the evening or early
morning when the air outside is cooler. Contact us for more information on the benefits of
whole house fans. Ask us how to save $100 on the installation of a new whole house fan.

Call Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning and we can help you install a QuietCool Whole House Fan in your Madera, CA home!

The hot weather has arrived in the Central Valley.  One of the ways our team stays cool at Purl’s Sheet Metal is with cool snacks and treats.   This week it was homemade popsicles.   We made strawberry watermelon popsicles from fresh fruit. This is a healthy and refreshing summer treat that everyone loved.   It’s easy and so good for you.   Make your own variation for some extra fun.

2 cups of watermelon

            2 cups of strawberries

            Juice of 1 lemon

Blend ingredients together until liquefied.   Once liquefied pour into your favorite molds.

Freeze for 4-6 hours and then ENJOY!

   

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget your pets on these hot days.  Have a cool place for your pets with plenty of shade and fresh water.    Hot surfaces can burn their paws and many pets can overheat easily.  A little water in a kiddie pool is also a good choice for many pets.

Our best summer tip for your indoor home comfort is to make sure you air conditioning system is serviced by a professional HVAC technician so you are prepared for the long summer.  It is a good idea to call for preventative maintenance to avoid any major breakdowns during the peak season.    Our service technicians are trained professionals and will get your air conditioning system ready for the triple digits temperatures in Madera, CA and the surrounding area.

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.

Custom BBQ Smoker Sheet Metal Fabrication

Purl’s Sheet Metal fabricates custom BBQ smokers.

Each barbeque smoker body is custom fabricated in our sheet metal shop in Madera, CA. Each smoker contains a top vent, side vents, chrome plated steel cooking grill, meat hanging hooks, removable fire basket, and temperature gauge. It is assembled with care and precision in the USA in Madera, CA. We are proud to announce they are now available for purchase and special order. Options are available for special orders, so give us a call at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning for all the details or even from some great new recipes!
