Keep yourself cool with Scotty’s Heating and Air

I think we could all agree that this year has been unusual regarding the weather. The East Coast has had to ration their oil and propane, while those of us who live here in El Dorado County have had mild weather, bordering on a drought year. We all know that summer will come, and with it, blistering afternoons where we find ourselves forced to turn on the air. I have two words for you: preventative maintenance. And I don’t mean the simple act of replacing your filter or taking the tarp off your exposed air-conditioning unit. While that is maintenance, there’s a little more to it.

 “When a professional heating and cooling maintenance is performed, we look for things that can make the system use more energy than it needs to and for things that may cause a future breakdown,” said Scotty Vick, who along with his wife Wendy own Scotty’s Heating and Air. The Pleasant Valley couple moved here from the Bay Area in 1999 and have watched their two kids, Katie and Bucky, become part of this community. Katie is in high school while Bucky attends middle school.

The company is the exclusive EverRest Dealer for El Dorado County. But units by Amana, Goodman, Rheem, Fujitsu (wall mounted), Honeywell and evaporative coolers are also serviced and sold. In addition, Scotty’s is a licensed Green Power dealer. Yup, the option of solar energy is calling you. By going solar you can save 75 percent or more on utility costs and can qualify for a federal tax credit. Beyond the obvious advantage of having a solar-powered home, consider resale. Solar could be the difference between a client buying your home or another that isn’t equipped with solar panels.

Being in business for over 25 years speaks for itself.  “We pride ourselves on friendly service and quality work. We make sure you are satisfied with our work because, after all, we want you to refer us to your friends and family,” Scotty said. And word of mouth and personal referral is what keeps a local company in business.

Maybe a new heating or cooling system isn’t in your financial future. A new heating or cooling unit is a major purchase, or rather investment. Programs like GE Capital Financing are available.

There are so many ways to keep your house cool this summer and warm next winter and odds are the team at Scotty’s has an affordable choice for you and your family. Things have changed when it comes to ways to improve the temperature inside your home. Portable options have become pretty darned efficient and might be perfect for those who need to cool a smaller area or are renting their home.

As you wander through this year’s EDC Home and Garden show, don’t shy away from the boys at Scotty’s Heating and Air. They offer a no-pressure tour of ways you can heat or cool your home. As Scotty said, “We are proud to be local and are here to help.”

Call Scotty’s Heating and Air at 530-644-2206 or visit their Website at scottysheatingandair.com. And most of all stop by and see what they can do for your home this summer.
