The Truth About The Indoor Air Quality In Your Home

Poor indoor air quality can lead to serious health risks if not resolved. Studies have shown that we Americans spend 90% of our time indoors. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside our homes can be two to five times more polluted than the outside air. With the stringent building codes over the last few decades the average home is much tighter, meaning less air exchange of fresh outdoor air with the indoor air, leading to higher levels of contaminants in our homes.

Customer Reviews

 

I called because my furnace had stopped blowing warm air. I left a message with their call center(it was after hours on a Friday night), and within 15 minutes I had a call back from Wayne Macklin. He listened to what was going on and said he'd send someone out. Chad arrived earlier than expected (yay!) and spent nearly three hours figuring out and solving not one, but two issues that my furnace had. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything as he went along.

The Macklin staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I look forward to working with them again in the future to replace my A/C unit that died this summer.

Macklin Mechanical has replaced both a furnace and AC unit in my home during the past year. Every experience from pre-sale, sales consultation, install, and follow up items has been outstanding. Highly recommend. They stand behind their work and are a pleasure to do business with.

Our water heater went out the other day. So I called Wayne and told him our situation. The staff at Macklin Mechanical is top notch. Jim installed our water heater today and went above and beyond what I expect in service. If you have any heating and cooling needs please call the great people at Macklin Mechanical!!! They have earned my business for sure!!
