Mike Hlavay prides himself on customer service. Not just service with a smile, but service that is honest and fair. That’s why homeowners who choose Hlavay’s Sierra Vallery Home Corp. get services at prices that are hard to beat.

Sierra Valley Home Corp. installs and services home heating and cooling systems, solar, whole house generators and windows.

In Hlavay’s line of work he says he finds quite a bit of dishonesty from other contractors, so he recommends getting multiple estimates and to watch out for sales tactics. “The best thing you can do is get a second opinion, whether it’s a replacement or a repair.

If you are looking to save on energy bills, perhaps it is time to consider going solar. Sierra Valley Home Corp. does solar electric systems and also solar hot water heating systems. “The cost of solar electric has come down tremendously. People overlook solar water, but it’s pretty cost-effective” Hlavay said.

For county residents living in more rural areas, or anyone who has frequent or long lasting power outages check out Hlavay’s whole house generator. It’s the great to have when the snow hits.

Sierra Valley Home Corp. offers free Title 24 energy calculations for any job they bid on. That’s a great deal on a service anyone building or expanding a home will need.

The technicians at Sierra Valley Home Corp. are all NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certified and keep up to date on the technology with regular training from manufacturers.

To maintain the longevity of home heating and cooling units Hlavay recommends having it professionally serviced every one to two years, especially with older equipment. And sometimes it’s just as easy as changing that air filter. “You would be amazed at how many calls we go to and we pull the filter out and it’s clogged,” Hlavay said. Another insider tip from Hlavay is to have a furnace checked for a carbon monoxide leak. “Don’t wait until it’s too cold; there may be a wait [for the test],” he said.

When Hlavay isn’t climbing around on the rooftops of homes all over the Highway 50 corridor, you’ll find him helping his daughters with their 4-H and FFA projects raising chickens, lambs, hogs and more at their home in Placerville.

Trust Sierra Valley Home Corp. for your next home improvement project and give them a call at 530 295 0142 or  800 606 5017 and check out their Website at sierravalleyhomecorp.com.
