Do You Have a Friend in the Hospitality Industry Who Needs a FREE A/C?

As a resident of the South Jersey Shore area for most of my life, I've come to realize there is nothing my family and I enjoy more than going out to dinner to engage with our friends and neighbors from our local community. I guess this is probably one of the many events I once took for granted before the stay-at-home order closed almost all of the amazing coffee shops, cozy breakfast spots, lunch counters, diners, restaurants and bars in our area. But over the past few months I also began to realize it was more than the great tasting food and the good times I missed...

I realized I missed the people who serve us the food and the drinks just as much!

Over the years, I've come to know my fair share of great people that work in and around the hospitality industry here in Atlantic and Cape May Counties. These people are the foundation of what makes our area what it is! Don't get me wrong, our beaches are beautiful, the casinos are fun and the South Jersey Shore lifestyle is second to none, but it's our local hospitality workers that make our experiences here at the shore special. And some of these great people are really being affected by our recent crisis and might need some help!

At Comfort Now, our team realizes how much our area has been negatively impacted by the stay-at-home order associated with the pandemic and the effect it has had on our local economy...so we'd like to help in anyway we can! With that in mind, we've decided to give away TWO NEW Carrier Air Conditioning Units in our Comfort for Our Friends in Hospitality Giveaway. That's right, not ONE...but TWO Air Conditioners!!

Check Out this short video to learn more about our giveaway...

It's Time to Take Care of the People That Take Care of Us!

There's no doubt we are all tired of hearing about or even talking about the Coronavirus Virus! But it's impacted our lives whether we like it or not. Graduates can't take part in a significant rite of passage, you can't just run to the store to go shopping without it being a major undertaking, I can't belly up to to the bar at The Anchorage to enjoy a bite to eat with my wife and shake hands with Joey Mac or Adam, nor can I enjoy the many other rituals I may have taken for granted as part of the life I once lived...

But what's it been like for frontline healthcare/medical workers?

I can't even begin to imagine what it has been like for this amazing group of people. These are the people that take care of us when we get sick! From first responders, to nurses, therapists, technicians, clerical staff, janitorial & maintenance staff, IT staff, food services staff, etc. the list goes on and on. How do you think life has changed for these people during this pandemic? We have a few members of our family who work in the medical field and their stories are just heartbreaking at times...but maybe we can help put their minds at ease a bit if we could help them breathe cleaner air in their homes when they return home after taking care of our fellow community members and friends...maybe you can help them also!

Please take a minute to watch this short video to see what you can do to help...

Do You Know a Food Supply Worker Who Could Use a FREE A/C?

It's a typical Saturday Morning in early May 2000 something, my wife just got home from the ShopRite in Somers Point. My boys are teenagers and they themselves just got home from crew practice (they row for Mainland & are proud Mustangs). Excited to see all the goodies from the grocery store, they seem to polish off almost a pound of ham and nearly that much cheese. I'm sorry, did I mention they also devoured the whole loaf of bread in this endeavor while drinking almost a gallon of milk? Oh well...this is what life is like raising three teenage boys who are all WELL over 6 feet tall and still growing; so we'll just run back to ShopRite to replenish the groceries they just ate without regard for the work it took to do the shopping! No big deal...right? Or is it...

Fast forward 20+ years...WOW, times are a bit different today! If my wife went to ShopRite today to get the same grocery order, what would her experience be like? Well, after she donned her face mask and put on her surgical gloves, she would have to wait in line outside (6 feet apart of course) to get into the store as the state is currently allowing the store to operate at only 50% of its original capacity. Did I mention the shelves are half full, the other shoppers are avoiding each other like they're afraid and the whole process takes at least twice as long to complete as it used to?

Yes, grocery shopping is much more of a challenge in today's unique and trying times, but what about the food supply workers who are making sure we have the items we need to feed our families? What has life been like for them during these times? Well, I can assure you, it CANNOT be easy! That's why we've decided to offer at least one of them some much needed comfort during these trying times...

During these unique and trying times, the Comfort Now Team wants to select a food supply worker in Atlantic County or Cape May County to receive a NEW Carrier Air Conditioning Unit. The FREE air conditioner will be given to a food supply worker (or his/her family) who has been the most negatively affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic...Is that you or a friend of yours?

8 Ways and 2 Products to Protect Your Family from Viruses & Allergens

Call it caution, concern or sensationalism but you know it’s a hot issue when something can make politics the “also ran” story in this country.

Viruses are a constant that we live with. Some type of flu circulates annually and unfortunately takes tens of thousands of lives. When they identify it by name it, it’s really bad. Over the past 20 years here’s a few of them:

  • West Nile
  • SARS
  • Bird Flu
  • Swine Flu
  • Ebola
  • Zika
  • Now Coronavirus
  • And, although not a flu or virus, let’s not forget all the news about molds in the home

The truth is, our body comes into contact with
airborne microorganisms on a daily basis!

Of course, some airborne microorganisms are more dangerous than others. The list above is simply a reminder that we've been exposed to some potentially deadly pathogens in recent years.

Get To Know Your Options As We Say Farewell to R22!

Hey South Jersey Shore Homeowners, was your air conditioning system installed earlier than 2010? If so, it's likely to have the refrigerant commonly referred to as R22 helping keep your home cool and comfy...but that may become an issue during your next repair visit! Let me explain...

In recent years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began phasing out all hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) because they were determined to be compounding the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. R22 refrigerant is the most common HCFC is use today. The process of phasing out these substances began to raise the price of R22 refrigerant as it became more and more difficult to acquire.

As of January 1st of this year, R22 refrigerant can no longer be produced or imported. Although the phasing out of R22 will eventually be a good thing for our planet, if your air conditioner is older than 2010, your next repair bill may surprise you! But as your go-to resource for HVAC related solutions, we have a few options for you to consider...

5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Air Conditioner in January

Let's face it, a temperature of 60 degrees on January 11th is kinda nice! Ah heck, it may even get up to 70 degrees tomorrow...but is that a good thing?

On January 5th, 1904 the State of New Jersey experienced a low temperature of -34 degrees...that's NEGATIVE 34 degrees people! This was the lowest temperature ever recorded in the Sate of New Jersey. In contrast, on July 10th, 1936 the State of New Jersey recorded it's hottest day on record when the temperature reached a scorching 110 degrees! But don't worry, the first air conditioner, designed and built in Buffalo, New York by Carrier, began working on July 17th, 1902. Thank God for Willis Carrier, am I right!?!

But this is January in Southern New Jersey, isn't the temperature supposed to be somewhere between 29 degrees and 42 degrees? Well, there may be many reasons why the temperatures are so warm today (which we could debate for hours), but ask yourself this...

If it's this warm in January, how hot is it going to be in July?

One Holiday Heater Giveaway, TWO Winners!

As you know, the Comfort Now Team has been giving away a FREE heater to a person or family with the greatest need and most compelling story in the Atlantic County or Cape May County area for a few years now, but this year's giveaway was a very difficult one...let me explain!

When the nominees started rolling in, there were some truly heartbreaking stories being told! As we had in years past, we starting contacting these deserving families to try and determine which people were most in need of our services. Well, it wasn't long before we had more than one deserving family to choose from. So we narrowed the field of nominees down to a very deserving 5 finalists to receive the FREE heater.

Just getting the list down to 5 finalists was a very difficult task for our team. So we put our heads together and thought the best approach would be to ask the public to help us decide...WHEW, as it turns out, passing the buck was a great idea...or was it?

It's 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?

A couple of years ago, 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...

It's Back...a FREE Service Call for Vets and Their 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! And last year, we gave away a FREE service call for veterans and their families which went so well, we're doing it again this year! But first, a little history lesson...

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!

The finalists were selected from the numerous submissions and then voted on by the public.
