Five Tips to Get your Home Ready for the Holidays

Instead of traveling this holiday season most of us are spending more time at home. That means your home just might be working a little bit harder this holiday. Make sure your home is ready with these easy tips!

 

 

  1. Warm it up or keep it cool?

While our Cincinnati weather trends on the chilly side, warmer days still peek through. Is your HVAC system ready for the thermostat battle? Now is a good time to have your heating and air conditioning system serviced so you aren’t caught in the cold.

 

  1. Leave the light on

Daylight savings time just ended meaning we are entering into longer evening hours with less daylight. Make sure your outdoor lights are up to the task this holiday season. Check that your functional lighting wiring is in good condition and lights are positioned properly so your home can be accessed by visitors safely. Do you have security or landscape lighting installed?  If not, now is a good time.  Also, adding holiday lighting is festive, but make sure it is rated for outdoors and your electrical outlets can handle the load.

 

  1. Eleven Pipers Piping

Your pipes might not be humming a holiday carol with all the work they will handle this holiday season. A small gurgling or slow drain problem now can turn into a major problem when handling holiday demands. Have an expert diagnose, repair and maintain your home’s drains and sewer line so you don’t have a holiday breakdown.

 

  1. That little light of mine

Sometimes a little light can help set the mood. Dimmer switches can make the lighting you have less harsh and create a better atmosphere. A professional electrician can install dimmer switches on your current light switches or add additional recessed lights to make a room more inviting.

 

  1. Surge On

Electrical surges can happen when we least expect it.  But one surge can destroy your expensive electronics. It might be time to look at Whole-Home Surge Protection Services. With so much reliance on our electronics for social gatherings and even schoolwork, investing in what is essentially a secondary home insurance policy for your expensive electronics and appliances is a smart idea.

"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."
