Finding the Balance of Heat/HumidityYou probably know that too much humidity in your home in the summer is not a good thing.

But likewise, we also need to be mindful of moisture levels in the winter. Here's why.

"As always, Hartman Bros does service RIGHT! They are prompt, courteous, professional, clean and fairly priced for all services we've ever had completed. We were introduced to them in 1998 when we first used their services and have been faithfully returning for every Heating and Air need, including the building of 2 new homes. They are stellar performers providing excellence at a time when mediocrity has been touted as the norm in our society. They go well above and beyond in all they do."

"Came home from work to find that my furnace wasn't working. Since the temperatures were extremely mild for November, I just left a message for them to call me the next day. Received a call by 7:25 am and told that the repair man would be there in approximately a half hour. He was at my house by 8:30 and he had it back running within 45 minutes. He went the extra step and made sure that there was no other possible issues before he left. I'd recommend Hartman Brothers Heating to anyone, they are courteous, reliable, knowledgeable and won't gouge you like some companies."
