Placerville resident wins HVAC unit

SACRAMENTO — Beutler Air Conditioning & Plumbing, a leading residential heating and air conditioning company based out of Sacramento, selected Placerville resident Shirley Mattison as the winner of the “Help A Home” program. The “Help A Home” program was designed to give a deserving individual or family a new HVAC unit to not only beat the heat, but to improve the home’s indoor air quality. Mattison was carefully selected to win the grand prize of a free air conditioning and heating system for her mobile-home in Placerville.

Beutler representatives decided early on that Mattison was more than deserving of the new system. Mattison’s sister entered her in the contest. Mattison had been living with a broken air conditioner for four years, with only a window fan to cool her in the summers that reach well over 100 degrees, and a portable space heater to warm her in the winters. She is retired and lives on a fixed income, working part-time with special needs students at a local public school. Purchasing an $8,000 heating and cooling system was simply not in Mattison’s budget.

The new HVAC system from Beutler Air Conditioning & Plumbing that was installed in Mattison’s home will significantly lower energy costs, keep the home cool and comfortable, and improve air quality inside the home. Poorly maintained or out-of-date air conditioning units can lead to a number of problems in the home, including temperature inconsistencies, polluted indoor air, higher energy bill costs, and expensive repairs from the system working overtime.

    Beutler heating and air has always been very generous to the community. And to their employees with summer picnics and lavish employee appreciation Christmas parties. I have been in business with Gary Beutler and Rick Wylie (Beutler's President) and they do not come any better or more honest. I taught Gary Beutler how to fly. For those who do not know Gary, he is an incredible "close up" magician as well, and will be a friend for life. One funny story among many is; once, when my wife and I were having dinner with Gary and his wife, at their home, Gary mentioned his wife had been a French teacher. I told her , "When I was in grade school I went to a private school and we had to learn French and I still remember a few words, I told her, like ferme la bouche which means shut the door". She laughed and said, no, ferme la bouche means shut your mouth, ferme la porte means shut the door" . . .I said. "Oh, no wonder I memorized that, I heard it so often in class!" Anyway, thanks for printing the article. They truly are great folks.
