We have so much going on at AirTek these days, I think it’s a good time for an update!
- New Office
Although we have already been serving customers in Orange County, now we have an office in Anaheim to provide “locally-based expertise, easier accessibility and quicker response times to meet the needs of our customers,” says CEO Joe McLean.
We are very excited about the new office at 760 East Debra Lane in Anaheim and look forward to many years of helping our Orange County neighbors with commercial and residential air duct cleaning, kitchen stove hood cleaning, dryer vent cleaning and other indoor air challenges!
If you are in Orange County and need to consult with one of our experts, please contact us!
- Toy Drive
You only have a one more day to participate with us in the We Care East LA Toy Drive for their Community Holiday Event on December 17th. We will be volunteering at the event on Saturday and are really looking forward to seeing all the smiling faces and knowing that we helped make many children’s holidays happier.
If you would like to help in this effort, please drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any of our offices and we will make sure that they get to these amazing kids!
- Spare the Air
If you live in the Bay Area, served by our office in Santa Clara, you should know about Winter Spare the Air alerts. During an alert, you are not permitted to use fireplaces, wood stoves or outdoor fire pits. Unless a wood stove is your only source of heat you could get into trouble!
You will only be warned the first time, but if you are caught burning wood or wood pellets a second time the fine is a hefty $400 and goes up from there.
Soot pollution is a big problem in the winter months. Follow us on Twitter to get current Spare the Air alerts!
There is no alert today, December 15, 2011.
- Have you switched to LED lights?
If you are concerned about your energy use and your carbon footprint—and aren’t we all!—today’s LED holiday lights use 90% less power and take a long, long time to burn out because they have no filament inside.
If you are putting lights on your real tree or your home, please consider making it a “green” Christmas by using LED lights instead of incandescent bulbs!
Everyone at AirTek wishes you a happy and safe holiday season!
