My Atlantic County Home Got Robbed...Seriously!

As an Atlantic County resident for most of my life, I have always felt like serious crimes were something I only saw on the news; especially since I live in Linwood! But that all changed last week...I got robbed! Let me tell you how it happened and how I was able to catch the crook red handed...well, on video anyway!

On Friday, January 4th, 2019 I got a notification from my an app on my phone that there was an "unauthorized person" on my front porch. At 7:49pm our Nest Camera caught this kid, in his 20's, stealing a package off my front porch. This happened on Country Club Drive in Linwood. Pretty scary, huh?

WOW, have we got a heartwarming Christmas Story for you!

In late September of this year, we launched our Ugliest Heater Contest. Of all the great submissions, five finalist were chosen and voted on by the public. Of those five finalists, one winner was announced. That winner was Eileen of Somers Point.

Although Eileen had an overwhelming amount of the votes to win the contest, she also had a back story that we felt we needed to share; given the nature of her ordeal! Take a moment and read Eileen's story...

Here's a brief summary of Eileen's story BEFORE she had heat...

Eileen purchased her house in Somers Point in October 2016. By the end of the first year, her heater failed and she was left with NO heat! When asked about how the heater could fail so quickly in a house that she just purchased, Eileen explained, "Yes I had a home inspection, and yes, it passed. But if I would have been more aggressive, I would have known the heater was 35 years old. I was too naive and being a widow, I didn't know what to ask." Unfortunately, this happens all to often...but Eileen's woes were just beginning...

Everyone in Our Area Should Have Heat This Winter!

When I woke up the other day, the temperature outside was in the 20's! I quickly realized winter is here; even though the winter solstice (the official start of the winter season) does not occur until Friday, December 21st this year. That's almost a whole week away and yet I was already feeling the cold!

Can you imagine what it would be like to walk over to your thermostat and NOT be able to turn your heat on? Well, for many of our friends, neighbors and relatives this is a reality that they will need to face everyday this coming winter...sad I know!

At Comfort Now, we are hoping to change that reality for at least ONE family that has fallen on hard times in the Atlantic County or Cape May County area (and maybe save a few dozen more as much money as we can) - let me tell you more...

Another FREE Heater Giveaway for the Holidays

When I look back at a little gesture we decided to begin in 2014, I'm reminded of some of the great people we were able to help get heat for the holidays! This year is no different. We are looking to give away another FREE heater this holiday season.

Do you know someone who has fallen on hard times and may be in desperate need of a NEW Heater in the Atlantic County or Cape May County area?

Last year, it brought our team to tears when we presented 82 year old Joe Gallagher of Rio Grande, New Jersey a new heater. Joe and his son were selected as the winners of our 2017 Holiday Heater Giveaway. Joe, a Korean War Navy Veteran, was overjoyed to learn he and his 58 year old handicapped son would be the 2017 recipient of Comfort Now’s Holiday Heater Giveaway. Watch this short video to see Joe's reaction when we told him about getting his FREE heater...

FREE Service Call for Vets and Families

Each November, we set aside a day to honor those who have bravely served our country as a member of our United States Military...this day is Veterans Day!

Veterans Day began as “Armistice Day” in November of 1919 which was the first anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution outlining an annual observance to honor our military. Nearly 12 years later (in 1938), November 11th was chosen to become a national holiday - now called Veterans Day.

How do we honor our veterans?

Well at Comfort Now, we are offering ALL veterans and the families of active duty military service personnel in the Atlantic County or Cape May County area a coupon for a FREE service call. That's right...I said FREE!

It's Back...Our 2nd Annual Ugliest Heater Contest

It’s been almost a year since we awarded Chris Koelle of Mays Landing a NEW Heater for having the oldest and ugliest heater submitted to our team and voted on by our loyal friends and followers! And we are ready to do it again...

Chris and his family spent the winter of 2017-2018 in complete comfort with a new heating system awarded to him after submitting his entry in our 2017 Ugliest Heater Contest. Once he submitted his entry, he was selected as one of our five finalists; which then went on to the public voting round of the competition. Although it was close, Chris edged out his competition with 97 votes to become the public’s choice for a new system.

Chris and his family will enjoy their new heating system for years to come. We were so happy to provide this awesome family a new heater just before the cold winter months of 2017 that we decided to make this competition an annual event! Are you ready to win a new heater before the winter of 2018?

Why is My Upstairs Bedroom Still So Stinkin' Hot?

We get this question a lot — Summer & Winter. When a home or larger area is controlled by a single air conditioning system, differences in temperature are common. This can often occur because of an imbalance in the air flow to rooms. It frequently occurs when a two story house is served by a single heating and cooling system having just one thermostat.

What do you need to know to understand why this happens, and what do you need to do to fix this issue once and for all? In our world, this is known as a temperature differential and it can be caused by any one of the reasons mentioned below. But don't worry, there is a solution!

3 Simple Ways to Get Your Home Running Properly this Summer

Well, they’re finally here -- the dog days of summer. While this period between July and August is among the hottest days for the entire Northern Hemisphere, we have everything you need to stay cool, comfortable, and to keep your home running properly during this summer season. Here’s how to make the most out of not only your summer, but your whole year.

Get Maintenance

It’s simple — the more you use your air conditioning system during these scorching months, the harder it needs to work to keep your home cool. Eventually, the components inside these units will experience wear and tear and break down at a faster rate. Believe me, the last thing you want during this summer is a complete breakdown of your AC in the heat and humidity; which can not only leave you uncomfortable, but also cause a major disruption in your life!

Investing in a proper maintenance plan can keep your system running efficiently, and may even save you money on reduced utilities. We offer great rates to give you that piece of mind. To learn more, go to our service plan page.
