Providing HVAC Service While Social Distancing

At Greg’s Heating and Air Conditioning, we realize the importance of a working heating and cooling system and we continue to provide service during the stay at home period. Before entering your home, for your safety and ours, we put on fresh shoe covers, fresh disposable gloves, and on request a face mask. We make a point to touch as little as possible and maintain a responsible distance.

While most of our services are still available during this time, we would like to discuss the increased importance of indoor air quality in this new world. A modern air cleaning and purification system can not only continuously clean the air around you but the surfaces too.

Indoor Air Quality

As we all get used to the new normal of extra hand washing, social distancing, and wearing face masks, cleaning the indoor air has become even more important. Changing the air filter in your central air system is one of the most important things to remember. We have a wide variety of air filters in stock that are available with free delivery. If we don’t have your size in stock, we can get most in just a few days. Changing them on a regular basis is important to maintain the health of your system as well as the efficiency of the filtration.

Surface Sanitation from an Air Cleaning Product

We want you to be aware of an additional tool that can vastly improve the indoor air in your home or workspace. This can be added to your existing central heating or air system. It not only cleans the air very efficiently but also the surfaces in your home, office or place of business. This is not a new technology, it’s been in use for many years in places that rely on very clean air such as medical facilities, labs, and food processing. What is new are the added benefits of air and surface sanitation in our homes and indoor public spaces in the fight against COVID-19.

Imagine if you could have little workers come out at night and thoroughly clean every surface in your home or office.

Surfaces are sanitized by oxidation which is accomplished by producing ozone in the form of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Adding this to the interior air is like adding a crew of tiny workers that clean anywhere the air comes into contact – automatically, every day and night. Many models also include a UV light that continuously sterilizes the air passing through. While this has not yet been tested for Coronavirus – COVID-19, it has been tested for many other viruses such as H1N1 (Swine Flu), Avian Flu, Norwalk Virus, and many more. Test results show a dramatic reduction in both airborne and surface pathogens. Learn more about the numerous benefits of these air cleaning products and how they work. Read the laboratory test results here.

This can be a key tool in fighting the spread of the virus in indoor public spaces. Business owners can provide an additional layer of defense to protect workers and customers.


“AJ from Greg’s came out to service an AC and Heat pump today. I had him install a Reme Halo. It has completely removed all the dirt and dust floating in the air in my home. This is the air purification system used in health care. It’s the best investment I have made in my home.

I can’t recommend the Reme Halo and Greg’s Heating and Air enough.”
