These last few weeks have flooded the conscience with constant reminders of the current health COVID-19 crisis. The Coronovirus continues to dominate the topic of conversation. As your trusted Indoor Air Quality advisor, Hoff Heating & A/C would like to address the many questions & concerns we have received in recent days. We seek to accomplish this through our customer IAQ “CARE” program. Our “CARE” program is an acronym for the different ways we hope to lead our customers through this health Crisis. The goals reflected in this program include:
“C” = COMMUNICATE – It is our goal to actively communicate with our customers across the spectrum. This means everything from answering IAQ questions to addressing concerns each customer may have as it relates to their particular needs. Hoff Heating & AC wants to do everything we can to safeguard the health of our customers. Active communication is critical to accomplish that goal.
“A” = ADAPT – With the challenging times we all now face, Hoff Heating & A/C continues to adapt methods, policies, & procedures to ensure everyone’s safety. These include employee PPE use of items such as: gloves, safety masks, hand sanitizer, shoe booties, and disinfectants. Service & sales appointments are being tailored to meet everyone’s health needs. The ability to “adapt” to the way we take care of our customers will be an ongoing mission.
“R” = REASSURE – Fear and concern for everyone has grown exponentially in such a short time. We want to reassure both our employees & customers we are doing our best to safeguard everyone’s health. We have been checking employee temperatures as this crisis has developed. We also have began the in process of equipping all of our service technicians with hand held wireless for temperature reading.
“E” = EDUCATE – The amount of misinformation flying around is enormous. As your trusted IAQ Comfort Adviser, Hoff Heating & A/C has begun a campaign to educate our customers as it relates to their Indoor Air Quality. We are relaying information that has been provided by IAQ experts. This includes scientific statistical data by ASHRAE (The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America), and the EPA.
For those customers that wish to learn more about the “Education” facet of CARE, we have added several attachments to help. These include:
- A recent article by an ASHRAE expert with his thoughts on Coronovirus & IAQ
- An informational “Home IAQ Guide”
- Our recommended product guide as relates to IAQ concerns
We hope that you find this newsletter with the spirit it is delivered. We do not want to overwhelm anyone with more information but rather express our commitment to our customers & employees. As our slogan states-“Your family’s comfort is our family’s business”. During these trying times, we would like to reinforce our sincerity of how much we truly “CARE” for all of our customers!
