Apollo Home Launches Apollo Cares
Apollo Home is thrilled to announce a new home for our charitable and philanthropic projects. It’s called Apollo Home Cares and is our program to contribute to our Greater Cincinnati communities.
Recently, we sponsored a service dog through a local organization Rescued & Ready Inc. and Operation: Walking with Warriors. They trained a rescue dog, Echo, for a new life with Marine veteran Samuel Deeds.
Currently, we’ve partnered with St. Vincent de Paul to gift a heating and cooling system to a deserving family.
Know Someone Who Needs Heating and Air Relief?
Applications for the current giveaway will be accepted beginning March 1, 2019, through a web form. Submissions will be accepted through March 31, 2019. Representatives from St. Vincent de Paul and Apollo Home will select a deserving household from the entries received and notify the winner in April 2019.
Designed to help a Cincinnati-area family who has a financial and/or health-related need, the giveaway provides a functional or upgraded heating and air system. Finalists will receive a visit from an Apollo Home technician to determine eligibility and status of current central heating and cooling system, if any.
“We’re thrilled to partner with another fantastic organization in Cincinnati, St. Vincent de Paul, for this giveaway,” said Jamie Gerdsen, Apollo Home CEO. “I’m proud our company is civic-minded; so many of our team members volunteer through their schools, churches and other community organizations.”
“We know first-hand how heating and air transforms a home. There are many Cincinnati residents who have health issues complicated by a lack of proper heating and cooling. Too much humidity in the spring and summer, for example, triggers symptoms for those living with asthma, COPD and cardiac situations,” said Gerdsen.
Apollo Home has served the home comfort needs of the greater Cincinnati area since 1910. Beginning with heating, Apollo Home later incorporated the “new invention” of air conditioning in the 1950s. Since then, Apollo Home added plumbing and electrical services as well as air quality solutions and maintenance agreements into their company to better serve Cincinnati residents.
As a 3rd generation, family-owned business, Apollo Home strives every day to exceed the whole-home services needs for homeowners. Fueled by a drive to serve, Apollo Home has received awards such as Contractors of the Year from the Air Conditioning Contractors of America and an A+ Accredited Business rating from the Better Business Bureau.
St. Vincent de Paul
For more than 150 years, the Cincinnati District Council has worked with Cincinnati and Hamilton County neighbors. More than 900 volunteers live their faith in service to others whether it’s offering comfort to those alone, food to a single parent, or coats to last the cold Ohio winters.
St. Vincent de Paul works personally via home visits to those in needs. This personalization is a hallmark of our service to the “dispersed poor” in neighborhoods throughout greater Cincinnati. Regardless of creed or race, we offer spiritual, emotional and material assistance where needed.
Although affiliated with an international association, we are very much a grassroots effort. The Cincinnati Council raises money and personalizes programs specific to the needs of our local residents.
Where applicable, we draw on best practices of other councils but our focus is always on what’s most effective for our local community. We are “neighbors helping neighbors.”
"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
