Neighbors: Thankful for Our Loyal Customers

Thank you - NeighborsWe at Neighbors have been providing exceptional services for heating and cooling in Ames, IA since 1986. During the past few decades, we’ve worked hard for the reputation of being the area’s premier provider of heating, cooling, and plumbing. Our customers have become our family, and have always been our number one priority. We’re thankful not only for our customers, but also for the continued opportunity to serve our community.

It is with this in mind that we want to remind our customers of the importance of having a tune-up done for their furnace and central air conditioning in Ames, IA before winter arrives. We care about the wellbeing, safety, health, and comfort of everyone who has called on us for service. The time before winter arrives is the best time to schedule your tune-up appointment with us, for several reasons:

  1. The risk of carbon monoxide being released into your home decreases dramatically. When your system is routinely checked, any hidden issues that may contribute to deadly CO will be found. Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, and can result most often from a cracked heat exchanger. Neighbors will keep our customers safe from this deadly gas by checking all components of heating and cooling systems – even the heat exchanger to ensure it isn’t cracked.
  2. Your home will remain at a steady, comfortable temperature, which means you’ll save money on your energy bills. When a home is subjected to temperature variations, your system will struggle tomaintain a steady temp it will also work harder than it should to do so; this means more energy used, a higher energy bill, and a reduction in the longevity of your system. Our annual maintenance checks before winter arrives will ensure that your system is able to deliver consistency throughout the season.
  3. Your energy efficiency will remain as high as possible, saving you energy and money. A system that hasn’t been checked or tuned up is going to lose its efficiency over time, and will have to increasingly work harder and harder to maintain the temperature at which you want it to remain. Your energy bills will swell as your system kicks on more often and stays running longer. We can ensure that your system is running as efficiently as possible.
  4. You’ll keep your guarantees and warranties valid with regular annual maintenance. Most manufacturers require these annual tune-ups in order to keep the warranties valid on heating and air conditioning systems. They need to be inspected annually by licensed, certified experts in heating and cooling. Voiding a warranty on a system that is so vital to your home can cost you thousands of dollars at any given time!


With so much riding on your HVAC system – comfort, health, and safety – having Neighbors come out to perform annual maintenance is something our customers cannot afford to go without. Don’t wait to make your appointment for your annual check – contact Neighbors today and let us show our appreciation for our customers by continuing to provide the very best service available.
