Local Phoenix HVAC Company Einstein’s Home Services Kicks Off Massive Recruitment Campaign to Serve Customers in Phoenix, Arizona

In a bid to streamline its processes and provide comprehensive services to more customers, Einstein’s Home Services has launched a major effort to hire residential HVAC technicians and plumbers to meet growing customer demand.

Phoenix, AZ, August 6, 2021 – Einstein’s Home Services announces it has launched a massive new recruitment campaign designed to hire qualified, well-trained plumbers as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals to better serve its growing base of residential customers. 

With the weather causing the mercury to climb high in thermometers across backyards this summer in the southwest, Phoenix area residents in particular are taking notice and drinking more water to stay hydrated throughout the day. 

In order to protect their family against becoming ill from dangerous rising levels of heat, they need to feel reassured that their AC system will continue to work properly even during the middle of summer.

The team at Einstein’s Home Services, a local HVAC company with deep roots in the community, has pledged to keep up with homeowner demand for residential services. 

They are now actively working to add many new professionals to their ranks, and are seeing good responses from job candidates who know plumbing and heating, and ventilation systems inside and out. That’s the key to maintaining a great reputation in the industry.

Common Issues Needing Professional HVAC Attention

Phoenix area homeowners who notice a new issue with their HVAC system will want to bring in a professional as soon as possible to take care of the problem while it’s still relatively manageable and less expensive to deal with.

Typical issues that customers need assistance with include:

* System is not working as efficiently as it used to: The problem may be a dirty or clogged filter.

* Air is not blowing cool: The thermostat may be malfunctioning, or there is something blocking a vent.

* Strange sounds: The system’s mechanical components might be about to fail, needing repair or replacement.

* Home never gets cool enough: The refrigerant might be leaking, causing the system to underperform.

These are just some of the more common issues homeowners contact Einstein’s Home Services regarding their HVAC equipment. If they do not see a problem listed here, homeowners are encouraged to connect with the company to see what its approach will be to finding a solution.

Homeowners Get the Best Return on Investment When They Arrange for Annual HVAC Inspections, Cleaning and Maintenance

An AC setup is one of the more expensive upgrades a homeowner can add. That’s why it’s so important to schedule time to taking good care of the air conditioner and heating system, with ongoing inspections.

Residential air conditioning equipment is designed to provide continuous service during the summer for many years, while the system is still under warranty. But to get the most value out of an HVAC setup, prudent homeowners will arrange for service at least once a year. Catching problems when they’re small means faster and easier repairs, with less of a hit to the pocketbook.

Ideally, Phoenix-area residents will ask a technician to inspect, maintain and clean the system once per year, months before they need to use their AC in the summer or their heater in the winter. 

Commitment to Quality

Recognizing the importance of establishing loyalty with customers, Einstein’s Home Services technicians follow industry best practices. They receive ongoing house and factory training to make sure they can properly advise customers on new technology, especially in terms of efficiency and saving energy.

Free Estimates for Service

Einstein’s Home Services, a local Phoenix HVAC company that offers a 100% lifetime workmanship guarantee on all the work they perform, is committed to providing the highest level of customer service. That’s why the company is happy to offer free estimates. For emergency service calls, the company guarantees service on the same day, or the work is done free of charge.

Homeowners in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area and surrounding community who are in need of plumbing or HVAC services can learn more by visiting Einstein’s Home Services website as well as by following the company on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Einstein’s Home Services Explains That A Well-Maintained Air Conditioning Unit Saves Money on Summer Utility Bills

Home air conditioning solutions from Einstein’s professional technicians allow homeowners to restore their HVAC system to proper working order, for greater efficiency and a lower total cost of ownership.

Phoenix, AZ, July 11, 2021 – Einstein’s Home Services is standing by to offer a whole range of home air conditioning solutions. Now that it’s summer, homeowners need a working system to reliably cool down their dwellings. 

It’s not just a matter of being comfortable. Excessively high temperatures can be harmful to pets, children and the elderly, as well as anyone with an underlying health condition or who isn’t accustomed to the blazing Arizona sun. Unfortunately, lack of air conditioning during the summer in Arizona can be a life-or-death matter.

That’s why it’s so important that homeowners work with a knowledgeable air conditioning services company when it’s time for AC inspections, maintenance and repairs (or replacement).

Common Problems With Air Conditioning in Phoenix, AZ

Homeowners may not immediately notice that there’s an issue with their air conditioning system. But as time passes, the problem becomes more obvious, prompting a call to AC professionals.

For some, an increase in utility bills as compared to the previous summer may be the first clue that something is wrong with the HVAC setup. That’s because as a system grows dusty and dirty, it has to work much harder to cool a home to the same level. 

Not only does this result in an unnecessarily higher power bill, it puts stress on the AC components, potentially causing it to fail earlier than the usual product lifecycle would indicate.

Sometimes, one of the rooms will be warm when the rest of the house is more comfortable. The thermostat may not seem to affect the temperature according to the owner’s preferences. Or, the homeowner may hear unusual sounds coming from the unit. Hot air flowing from all the vents when the AC is switched on signals a major issue that calls for a professional inspection.

There may be issues with the system’s coolant leaking, with a technician needing to find the leak and fix it as well as top off the coolant to the right level.

In some cases, the system is suffering from a dirty or clogged filter, causing it to underperform.

Often the problem has to do with an electrical component, such as a fan motor breaking. Only an inspection by a well trained technician will get to the heart of the problem.

Einstein’s Home Services Provides A Range of Home Air Conditioning Solutions

Homeowners can depend on Einstein’s Home Services to thoroughly inspect and maintain their AC equipment, and this service is available (and recommended) on a yearly basis to catch problems when they are still small and easier to address.

Keep in mind that technicians from Einstein’s Home Services focus on central air conditioning systems. They do not work on wall AC units.

Benefits of Installing a Brand New AC System

If a technician from Einstein’s Home Services determines that a person’s air conditioning equipment is too damaged to be worth repairing, or if it is an older, less efficient unit, it usually makes sense to purchase a replacement system.

One benefit is the peace of mind that comes from having professionals install new equipment that is under warranty. Another benefit is that the homeowner can expect utility bills to decrease immediately since the new system will be much more energy-efficient.

A new home air conditioning setup may be even more affordable than homeowners imagine, if there happens to be any governmental or industry rebates for buying and installing qualified, environmentally-friendly systems. 

If equipment uses less electricity, the government wants to encourage people to use it over a less-efficient model that causes more pollution. The team at Einstein’s Home Services will be happy to recommend different options if a replacement AC setup is called for. They keep up on industry developments as well as news of any subsidies, discounts or other financial inducements to install a new system.

Homeowners and other interested parties in need of professional home air conditioning solutions can learn more by checking out the Einstein’s Home Services website and by following the company on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

When Strong Winds Start to Howl, SnoBlox-SnoJax Protects People’s Homes and Businesses With Gutter Guards

Weather forecasts of high winds prompt Pennsylvania area homeowners and business owners to install SnoBlox-SnoJax gutter guards to make their buildings easier to clean and maintain.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Lemoyne, PA, June 20, 2021 – With reports of strong winds appearing on local weather forecasts, SnoBlox-Snojax reminds local homeowners and business owners alike about the importance of keeping their building’s gutters free of debris. The company has created its innovative Gutter Guards, which keep leaves from clogging rain gutters, easily and effectively.

As trees shed their leaves, the dying materials often wind up falling in rain gutters. Soon enough, as homeowners and facility managers can attest to, the gutters start to become filled up.

If not promptly cleaned up (on an ongoing basis), this leads to clogs that block the water from flowing, with the issue growing progressively worse.

Potential Problems From Failure to Clean Gutters

As leaves and other material becomes stuck in gutters, you have to deal with much more than an unsightly mess. Serious problems include:

  • Breeding Ground for Insects: Mosquitoes, wasps, and other insects in search of water will congregate at clogged gutters. The mud and rotting leaves stuck in the gutters also serve as building materials for insect nests.
  • Damage to Foundation: As water spills over the sides of your home or company’s rain gutters, it has nowhere to go but across and down the walls. With so much water entering the structure, it starts to erode the foundation, causing issues with the walls as well.
  • Gutters Break: The gutters installed to convey rain water away from your roof will eventually crack and break when they’re subject to the additional weight caused by leaf and debris trapping water.
  • Ruined Ceilings and Walls: The ceiling and walls of the building are exposed to a great deal of water since the water needs someplace to go when the gutters are filled.

 

LeafBlox Gutter Guards Prevent Damage From Clogged Rain Gutters

There’s no need to worry about damage to the building once LeafBlox gutter guards are put in place. The LeafBlox gutter guards are easy for facility managers and homeowners to install. They require very little maintenance once in place.

They serve to trap any leaves that fall in the gutter, allowing water to flow freely. Leaves trapped in place by LeafBlox simply blow away or soon decay. Highly versatile, the LeafBlox Gutter Guards work with most types of roof and gutter types.

SnoBlox-Snojax LeafBlox Gutter Guards Come in a Range of Lengths to Meet Customers’ Varying Size Requirements

No two buildings are going to be exactly alike, so the team at SnoBlox-Snojax designed the LeafBlox in a range of sizes and lengths.

The 5-inch version of LeafBlox is available in lengths of 30 feet, 60 feet and 120-foot configurations. For larger applications, the 6-inch version is available in 60-foot configuration, while the 8-inch Commercial LeafBlox gutter guard is 36 feet long.

People who can’t remember the last time they cleaned their gutters will want to take immediate steps to address up the situation.

Customers interested in learning more about using SnoBlox-SnoJax Gutter Guards can visit the company’s website for details about how the product works.

They can also connect with SnoBlox-SnoJax via Facebook, check out company updates on Twitter and see Gutter Guards in action on Instagram.

Fall Protection Distributors has Released a Horizontal Lifelines Collection

All of the horizontal lifelines are made from high-quality materials and are backed by strong warranties. They are extensively tested and awarded industry-backed safety and weight ratings. In addition to being tough and reliable, the systems are also designed for ease of use. Most systems can be deployed in a matter of minutes, needing only an anchor and attached personal gear in order to function. Systems also include shock absorbers, automatic retractors, and additional safety features that make them easier and safer to use.

Even with the larger lifelines, assembly does not require specialized tools or know-how. The larger systems can simultaneously anchor up to eight workers at a time, and no specialized engineering is necessary for deployment. Any worker can safely operate these safety devices in order to protect themselves while they go about their business.

The collection can be categorized into two different applications. Roof trussing and upgrade kits make up the bulk of the listings and provide enough safety for the majority of roof-related work. Each item in the catalogue was carefully selected to do a common job in horizontal and fall safety.

Roof trussing systems provide sustained protection for workers in high places. The FallTech 2 person system provides 50 feet of security in a simple trussing system that provides shock absorption and self-retraction. It is perfect for work on smaller roofs and sections. With 50 feet of the safety line, two workers can get a lot done.

The four-person system takes the same principles and extends protection with variable length ropes ranging from 30 to 100 feet. As jobs get more complicated, the variable options in this kit allow for more flexibility without compromising the core premise of safety.

For temporary setups, the Malta 60’ Cable Assembly is perfect. It has adjustable cabling and shock absorbers, all designed for work from elevated concrete or I-beams. The two posts and fall protection cable assembly are incredibly easy to use and fast to deploy. The entire kit consists of three certified pieces, making it one of the simplest assemblies available.

Upgrade kits are also available for improving roof stability and the overall functionality of anchor systems. The SSRA 100’ kit provides 4 anchors with 2 anchor plates. It includes line tensioners, carabiners, o-rings, and cross arm straps, plus a storage bag to keep it organized and ready to move. It works in conjunction with existing SSRA1 anchors and SSRA3 anchor plates to expand the system and keep more people safe at variable distances.

The Ultimate Pro Pack pushes safety to a whole new level with 8 SSRA1 anchors and 4 roof jacks. It includes a torque wrench, a 100’ horizontal lifeline, 5,000-lbs. D-ring and everything needed for assembly and use. Designed specifically for roofing contractors and solar installers, it is an ideal system for a wide range of work. It is also supported by a lifetime warranty.

Horizontal lifelines are essential to an entire industry of work. People performing tasks on high surfaces need fall protection, and they can get it from the items in this catalogue. You can browse the entire collection at Fall Protection Distributors. Additional catalogues and safety tools are available for vertical protection, roof clamping and more. When you need lifelines or protection for work that takes place off of the ground, you can find it with Fall Protection Distributors.

You can also reach us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Follow us to stay up to date with the latest equipment and news regarding fall safety.

SnoBlox-Snojax Reminds Business Owners That Summertime Is Perfect for Scheduling Installation of Snow Retention Bars to Protect Metal Roofs Before Winter Arrives

SnoBlox-Snojax urges building owners and facility managers to prepare for the coming icy blasts of winter by protecting their metal-roofed structures with snow retention bars now, rather than putting off this task until winter arrives and contractor appointments are booked up.

By arranging to install snow retention bars well before icy and snow conditions begin, building owners will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are doing what’s needed to protect their investment. And if the building may require a customized system, ordering a snow retention bar system sooner rather than later will help to keep installation on schedule.

Ideally, a company that has determined it needs to upgrade the roof of its metal building will take steps to improve it with a customized setup developed with industry professionals, such as the professionals at SnoBlox-Snojax.

The team at SnoBlox-Snojax, a family-run business, is proud to have been serving the industry since 1976. To meet growing demand, its mill finish snow retention systems are always in stock and available to order as they are off the shelf, or with custom powder coating to precisely match colors to existing building panels.

Snow retention bars are engineered to span across multiple roof panels. The SnoBlox-Snojax SnoBar is a metal roof snow retention bar system that employs a top-loading stainless steel clamp for attachment to standing seam roofs, a patented, industry-exclusive.

SnoBlox-Snojax has built an excellent reputation for the company’s mounting systems, which not only allow for fast, safe installation, but also make it possible without any worry over causing leaks or damage or voiding the roof manufacturer’s warranty.

Building owners choose SnoBlox-Snojax because the RCT RoofClamp, made of aluminum, universally fits with most standing seam panels. The aluminum swivel brackets allow installers to angle the bar in converging valleys and hips, a versatile feature.

SnoBlox-Snojax manufactures snow retention bars from galvanized steel coated with Gatorshield, or from stainless steel in customized orders. The two options provide outstanding resistance to corrosion, helping to prolong the useful lifespan of metal roof buildings, which in turn lowers the total cost of ownership.

As a pioneer in the industry, SnoBlox-Snojax uses stainless steel clamps to enable bars to be top-loaded. Professionals appreciate this aspect of the system because it’s faster to install and uses the fewest parts. Because SnoBar systems usually necessitate fewer rows than older, traditional pad-type snow guard systems, they are viewed as more efficient and more cost-effective.

Of course, no two metal roofs are alike. In situations where a building owner has a unique shaped roof requiring protection from the snow, SnoBlox-Snojax engineers are standing by to consult with customers to design a customized system for their project.

All customized systems are produced to the company’s exceedingly high specifications. They include the hardware, bars, clamps, and instructions needed to get the job done right, on time, the first time, with SnoBlox-Snojax customer service available throughout the process.

For 6-foot SnoBar kits, the company delivers by ground shipping. Larger orders and custom systems typically are packed in 12-foot wood pallets or crates and are delivered by LTL freight.

SnoBlox-Snojax stands behind all the work it does, following industry best practices with experienced designers and engineers who are devoted to the highest standards.

Accordingly, the company includes a lifetime warranty against failure on all snow retention bar systems at no additional cost, which is another way it sets itself apart from the competition.

About SnoBlox-SnoJax:

The late Jack McMullen invented the first polycarbonate snow guard and founded SnoBlox-Snojax in 1976. He developed the product to address the problem of rust in his own metal building business. It’s a solution that protects the roof and keeps it from being stained and damaged by rust. A multi-generation family business, SnoBlox-Snojax is proud that all of our products are made right here in the U.S.A., with nothing being sourced from overseas. The mission of SnoBlox-Snojax is to meet the ever-changing needs of the metal roofing industry with ongoing research and development of our professionally tested metal roof snow guard systems.

Revolutionary Fall Protection With Zero Damage to Rooftops

Lemoyne, Pa. May 12, 2021 – Homeowners, building owners, contractors and managers can now work safely on standing seam roofs without worrying about damage to panels. The Standing Seam system uses superior anchorage attachment, certified at an independent ISO 17025/ANSI Z359.18 certified materials testing facility. A wide variety of Standing Seam Roof Anchor (SSRA) systems are available for immediate purchase.

Capable of withstanding 14,500 pounds, the SSRA far outstrips the required 5,000 pounds specified by OSHA and ANSI. When the system did ultimately fail, the attachment bolts sheared, leaving the panel itself completely unharmed. (Test anchor body was made of aluminum.) Nearly 10,000 pounds above the required limit and thousands of pounds above all other manufacturers, the Standing Seam Roof Anchor is an inimitable product.

Despite the massive load-bearing capacity and fall protection, however, the SSRA isn’t heavy at all. In fact, an anchor made for one person weighs only 4.5 pounds. That makes it simultaneously both the strongest and the lightest one ever made. It is easy to adjust and move, making it the ideal choice for either temporary or permanent attachment.

No need to buy different products for different jobs or job sites, however. The Standing Seam Roof Anchor boasts a universal design, and therefore works on more than 500 different panel types. These official “panel profiles” included t-seams, bulb seams, SnapLok, single lok, double lok, MR-24 and more. In addition to strongest and lightest, the SSRA is also the most widely applicable. Users can take it from roof to roof without the need to switch out parts, reassemble it or use different systems completely. Consequently, the savings in time, money and effort are considerable.

Components also withstand the test of time. Made of heavily tested stainless steel and aluminum materials, the anchor withstands salt spray and other adverse weather. It takes well to powder coating, so it’s simple to blend permanent anchor installations into the surrounding roof color. The low-profile attachment makes fixed installations even harder to see. This also minimizes tripping.

Another noteworthy characteristic of the Standing Seam Roof Anchor is its ability to withstand the full 5,000 pounds required in every direction of pull. That means workers can count on the roof anchor to prevent accident or injury no matter where they are in relation to the anchor. Working downward, to either side, upward or even up and over the top of the roof, the anchor provides equal protection. That minimizes the need for workers to adjust their anchors on the job. Instead, it gives them freedom of movement to focus on the task at hand.

The SSRA system isn’t just for people. Because it can handle such large loads, it is also ideal for devices and machinery. Users can attach walk boards, SRLs, ladders, horizontal lifelines and roof jacks with equal ease. Get anchors for everyone in the crew as well as all heavy tools frequently in use, and trust to them to keep the jobsite safe for everyone – and every expensive piece of equipment.

Minimize scratching when frequently attaching or detaching the Standing Seam Roof Anchor with recommended Nylon Tipped Set Screws. This will keep roofs looking nice for years to come. These work just as well with the patented universal fit design of the SSRA, and are reusable over and over again. Installation requires nothing more than a torque wrench that reads to inches per pounds, as well as a 3/16-inch hex bit socket. Nothing could be simpler.

The website makes it easy to reorder screws, pair robes and shock absorbers with the SSRA system, and find an appropriate torque wrench, if contractors and workers don’t already have one on hand.

Roofers looking to support American industry will find the Standing Seam Roof Anchor a bonus as well. It’s made in the United States with a Lifetime Life Saving Warranty. Users never again have to worry about paying for a replacement, and profits go to support American businesses. The Standing Seam Roof Anchor is available in a significant number of options, from different attachments to contractor kits that include multiple anchors. Visit www.fallpd.com to learn more today.

SnoBlox-SnoJax Produces the Metal Roofing Snow Guards Needed to Stop Sliding Snow and Ice

Back in the 1970s, metal roofing first made its debut as an option for commercial and residential homes. The first winter after the first installation, every new roof dumped a load of ice and snow on unsuspecting pedestrians. There was an immediate need for snow guards. SnoBlox-SnoJax went into business manufacturing snow guards for metal roofing and continues to serve satisfied customers across the country to this day.

Today, SnoBlox-SnoJax produces its original clear polycarbonate snow guards. The simple design blends in with the colorful metal roof while slowing the slide of ice and snow. Each guard is fastened to the metal roof using screws or adhesive and can hold back up to four tons of ice and snow. They are shaped like a bookend with a six-inch vertical plate able to catch falling and sliding snow. Once the snow is halted, it has a chance to melt instead of falling in a potentially dangerous heap. The snow guards are installed by a metal roofing company, a different contractor, or the homeowner when following all recommended guidelines. They are an affordable solution to an annual problem, costing under five dollars for each piece.

If ice sheets are more of a problem in a particular area, SnoBlox-SnoJax also offers their Snowbreakers product. The triangular unit works to break up sheets of ice and snow with their angular design. Instead of sharp and even deadly amounts of ice racing down the roof, the Snowbreakers crack and shatter the sheets. A pedestrian may only experience a quick shower of ice and snow. When used in combination with the Snoblox snow guards, the property owner sees a significant reduction in dangerous sheets landing in walkways, parking lots, and on people.

Some property owners demanded yet another option to the Snoblox and Snowbreakers systems which attach to the flat areas between the ribs of a metal roof. In 2016, the company bought Action Manufacturing LLC and their line of Colorbar and Snobar products. A Snobar comes in six-foot-wide sections and can clamp onto standing seam metal roofs. They offer a faster installation compared to the Snoblox system and can be ordered in a matching powder coat color for a near-invisible appearance. These units can hold back over a foot of snow while allowing melting ice and snow to continue to slowly and safely drip off the roof. Now customers, clients, and homeowners can walk out from under their metal roof without fearing the next mini avalanche.

Interested commercial and residential contractors and property owners can order the complete range of SnoBlox-SnoJax products directly from their website at snoblox-snojax.com or through a local authorized distributor and reseller. Customers can also contact them through their Facebook and Instagram pages.

SnoBlox-SnoJax remains committed to producing quality systems that work with and support current metal roofing technologies and installation procedures. Their line of products has changed in manufacture and material since its inception, improving durability and function without becoming exorbitantly expensive.
