Myth: Bigger is better, because it'll heat my house better.
PHACT: The RIGHT SIZE furnace will heat your house better.
So how do you know what the right size is?
There are several things that our team at Gugino Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling take into consideration when it's time for our customer to buy a new furnace. Here are a few of them...
By taking the time to inspect these areas in your home (FOR FREE) our team can recommend furnace options that will allow you to get more bang for your buck. And it's not just the financial benefits that will abound. By having an appropriately sized furnace for your home you are being more environmentally friendly as well. A furnace that is bigger than you need pumps out more CO2 into the outside air than is necessary.
Why pay more money, waste more energy, and pollute more air when you can save money, energy, and mother earth?
That's why a bigger furnace isn't always the best answer.
We'd be happy to help you walk through the process when it's time for a new furnace. Our reputation over the past 42 years is built on each conversation, each walk through of a home and recommendation made.
We do everything as if it were going in our own home.
That's a PHACT you can count on!
What you know now will save you time, energy, and money...later.
It's a simple PHACT (Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning Tip) that the products you see in the big box stores are not made the same way as the products the Mom and Pop shops carry.
But wait...isn't bigger, cheaper?
Let's tackle that question. Once we do, we think you'll love the PHACT that you have Mom and Pop shops in your corner, and in your neighborhood.
Myth: Bigger is cheaper.
PHACT: Bigger may have a cheaper price-tag up front. But paying more for it in the long run doesn't help you. Consider the fact that it's made with cheaper parts on the inside. The next time you look at a faucet, think about how many moving parts it takes to make up a faucet. Think about all of the parts you can't see...not just the shiny finish you can see. Think about how long you want the faucet to last. Think about what you will do a few months down the road when it doesn't work as well anymore. Think about the phone number you will have to call to get an answer to your question. Think about being placed on hold, passed around the store, and ending up talking to the same person you started with...only to find out no one really knows the answer to your question.
Now...think about how things work with a Mom and Pop shop.
The products we carry don't just look good on the outside. The internal moving parts aren't plastic, they are made up of products that will stand the test of time. If you ever have a question, you can talk to the owner if you'd like. Think about the fact that they want you happy from day one. Think about how you see them at ballgames, community events, school concerts, and summer festivals. Think about the smile, the handshake, and a guarantee based on a relationship, rather than a transaction.
So, how'd we do?
Still think bigger is cheaper?
And as much as we are talking about our trade...it's the same thing with every other local Mom and Pop business, with the products and services that they offer. Mechanics, Electricians, Restaurants, and the list goes on and on.
The promises found in the relationships within your community stand the test of time.
That's a PHACT you can count on!

We'd like to share something with you, not market or advertise at you.
So what is the elephant in the room?
It can be a lot of fun to take vacations, have dinner out, and go to an event in the community. But when it comes to spending money on home maintenance? Well, we've arrived at the elephant in the room. We know it. You know it. We know that you know it. We hope that you know we know it. Lots of knows in there...we know.
This might sound funny coming from a company that sells furnaces, boilers and air conditioners, but...
we get more excited when we help our customers save money, than spend it.
What does that mean?
Here are a few examples where that happens...
We're sharing this because it's getting to be that time for sure. What time? When it's really important to have someone stop by and check your furnace/boiler. Not because we want you to spend money, but because we want to help you save it.
If you haven't had the opportunity to schedule a seasonal home maintenance review with us yet, we hope you'll call. Yup...that's the elephant in the room. The part where we ask you for your phone call.
And as we leave we want you to know that when you hear us ask you to call us, we aren't asking for your business, money or transaction. We are asking for the opportunity to work for you, to earn your trust, confidence, and friendship...so that no matter what you need, you'll know we will always be here for you.
Thanks again for stopping by our blog today.
We hope to hear from you soon. (Now you know why).
We hope you'll share this post with those closest to you. (So they can know why, too).
We hope you know that no matter what, we appreciate you. (Because that's the truth).
And one more thing...
You might be wondering what in the world that elephant in the picture is standing on.
It's one of the products we carry. Just a little peace of mind that if it is time to replace something with your home's heating or cooling...at any point...the products we carry will be with you for a long time.
