New Jersey Residents Preparing to Stay Cool in the Summer Heat

Gold Medal Service encourages pre-season cooling system tune-up to improve efficiency,
improve indoor air quality and increase comfort

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. April 15, 2014 – Now’s the time for New Jersey homeowners to get their homes ready for the spring and summer weather, says Gold Medal Service, an award-winning area heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical and drain service company. Gold Medal Service experts have already started their busy spring check-up season, helping homeowners repair any damage caused by winter storms or power outages, and ensuring their air conditioners are in prime condition before the summer heat. The company has started to get a lot of calls for air conditioning maintenance and repair, and stresses that now is the time to get it done before the hot weather arrives.

“Your air conditioner is most likely to break down on the hottest day of the year – which is also the busiest time for service contractors running calls, so you could face long wait times if you experience an outage,” said Mike Agugliaro, Gold Medal Service co-founder. “Plus, most manufacturers require routine maintenance on a system to keep the warranty valid.”

Not only will Gold Medal Service experts check homeowners’ air conditioners, but they will also be happy to take a look at plumbing and electrical systems hit hard by snow and severe storms that have plagued New Jersey this winter. Cold temperatures can make pipes prone to freezing and developing leaks, and power outages can have a rough impact on electrical wiring in a home.

“If there are any problems in your home, the longer you wait to fix them, the bigger a problem they could become,” said Agugliaro. “Homeowners don’t want to have to pay more money for repair or replacement on pipes or electrical work down the road, so it’s best to get everything checked out now to make sure small problems do not escalate into bigger issues.” 

About Gold Medal Service
Gold Medal Service, rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau, was founded in New Jersey in 1994 with just two employees. Their vision was to provide homeowners with a reliable and trustworthy home service company customers could count on to fix just about anything that could go wrong in a home. Since then Gold Medal has grown to include more than 120 employees and technicians solving plumbing, heating, cooling, electric, drain, and sewer issues for homeowners across the state of New Jersey.

Students Learn Essential Business Skills Thanks to Local Entrepreneur

Owner of one of New Jersey’s largest home services companies, Gold Medal Service, shows teens from the Princeton Learning Cooperative how to run a successful business

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. March 24, 2014 – Teen students from Princeton Learning Cooperative, a center offering personalized education opportunities to students, visited the offices of Gold Medal Service, one of New Jersey’s largest and most successful heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical, and drain service companies Monday, March 24 for a hands-on business education experience. Mike Agugliaro, Gold Medal Service co-founder and ServiceKey business mentor, gave students a tour of his company and talked with them about business processes, including recruiting, marketing, accounting, and management.

“My son is a part of the Princeton Learning Cooperative program, and I am just so impressed with the opportunities the center offers to students,” said Agugliaro. “These kids have the opportunity to really personalize their education to things that interest them, and to get outside of the traditional classroom to see what it’s like to work in the real world.”

Agugliaro grew Gold Medal Service into a $23-million-a-year home services company, serving the entire state of New Jersey. He started ServiceKey in 2013 to show other service business owners how they could use his techniques to grow their own companies, and he is eager to guide the next generation of entrepreneurs, and encourage young people to pursue a career in the home services industry.

“So many kids are choosing not to go into trades like plumbing, electrical, and HVAC anymore, so there’s a real shortage of qualified technicians and entrepreneurs in the industry,” said Agugliaro. “I want to show teens who are about to have to make some big life decisions that they can do well in this business, be very successful, and have a great time doing it.”

Upgrading to an Efficient Heating System Saves Money

Wednesday, January, 29th, 2014 at 9:49 PM by Gold Medal

Gold Medal Service offers winter heating tips

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. Jan. 28, 2014 – New Jersey homeowners with old heating systems face a winter season full of high energy bills. But even as severe weather slams the country, it’s not too late to replace that money pit with a new, more efficient heating and cooling system. Gold Medal Service, an award-winning heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical, drain and waterproofing service company, offers New Jersey residents some tips to determine if they need a new system.

“One of the best ways to save money in the long run is to invest in a more energy efficient heating and cooling system,” said Mike Agugliaro, Gold Medal Service’s co-founder. “Today’s new units can save the average home owner as much as 25 percent per year in annual heating costs.”

With the temperatures dropping so much recently, you don’t want to get left out in the cold if your old furnace quits. If your contractor suggests that your furnace needs replacing it is wise not to delay. If it's the cost of replacing your old furnace that’s making you hang on, consider that some older models of furnace deliver only 55 percent of their heat to your home while a new high-efficiency natural gas furnace may deliver up to 97 percent of the heat it creates to your home. Your old furnace is probably costing you money. A new natural gas furnace will likely save you money.

A new furnace installation can cost anywhere between $1,000 and $3,500, depending upon the complexity of your specific installation. High efficiency models might cost an additional $1000 to $2,500 for the added efficiency. If your family has high annual heating bills, a higher efficiency furnace is going to make more economic sense than it would for a family that has very small heating bills. When determining how efficient a furnace to buy, take into account what you are spending on your annual energy bills. If you are going to be in your home for a period of time that would justify this additional expense, it makes sense to install the highest efficiency furnace that you can afford. A new high efficiency furnace may also increase the resale value of your home.

Other factors that determine your annual heating cost are:

  1. The size of your home
  2. How well your home is insulated
  3. The draftiness of your home
  4. The amount of leaks in your ductwork
  5. The temperature at which you keep your home during the winter season
  6. The number and type, or efficiency level, of windows you have in your home

If investing a new heating system isn’t in the cards now, here are five tips to keep your home warmer this winter:

  1. Weather-strip your doors
  2. Seal baseboards and caulk windows
  3. Wrap the water heater and ducts, insulate the pipes and change the filters
  4. Add a door sweep to rooms that you use less frequently
  5. Replace an old thermostat with a high-tech, smart thermostat.

“We offer financing options to make the purchase as easy and affordable as possible,” said Agugliaro. “Many of our customers find that rebates on a new, efficient system can actually put hundreds of dollars back in their pockets each month.”

Gold Medal Service Urges Homeowners to Check Basements For Winter

Thursday, January, 16th, 2014 at 9:10 PM by Gold Medal

Top service company recommends a basement audit to protect them from severe weather

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. Jan. 8, 2014 –Gold Medal Service, an award-winning multispecialty home services contractor in New Jersey advises area homeowners to consult a licensed home service contractor and basement waterproofing specialist to examine basements.
 
Recent record snow and dangerous weather patterns have wreaked havoc in much of the country, many times leaving homeowners with wet or flooded basements. While a secure, water-resistant basement will not prevent flooding in a severe storm, there are steps homeowners can take to keep water from seeping into their basements anytime, even during wet weather.
 
“Our Gold Medal Service team specializes in preventing basement water damage and assessing current water or dampness issues,” says Mike Agugliaro, Gold Medal Service co-founder. “Many of us are still recovering from last year’s storms. So if you already had signs of a wet basement last year, we urge you to have a qualified contractor assess your home’s vulnerability to future water damage and have it fixed as soon as possible.”
 
According to a National Hurricane Center report, 2012’s Superstorm Sandy was the deadliest hurricane to hit the northeastern U.S. in 40 years and the second-costliest in the nation's history. The report estimated damage caused by Sandy totaled approximately $50 billion.
 
“Preparing your home to withstand the effects of serious weather events is the best advice I can give to anyone,” says Agugliaro, “and making your basement as water-resistant as possible could help save your possessions and your home’s structural integrity, giving you peace of mind.”
 
Gold Medal Service provides homeowners with waterproofing, plumbing, heating, air conditioning and other services and regularly receives the Super Service Award from Angie’s List, a designation given to less than five percent of businesses that maintain a superior service record.

Gold Medal Service Invites You to Have a Furnace Tune-Up

Monday, November, 11th, 2013 at 4:41 PM by GoldMe5

Cold Weather Has Arrived! It’s Time to Schedule Your Heating System Safety Check

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. Nov. 11, 2013 – Cold weather has arrived and that means heating systems that have been dormant for six months are being cranked up. But before a heating system can work at peak performance this winter, Gold Medal Service, an award-winning heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical drain and waterproofing service company, is offering New Jersey residents some heating system safety tips to help prepare their homes and businesses.

“Scheduling a heating system safety check is the best thing a home or business owner can do to prepare for the upcoming winter,” said Mike Agugliaro, Gold Medal Service’s co-founder. “These checks don’t take long and a good inspector can highlight possible issues.  A furnace inspection can save between 10-20 percent on heating bills by ensuring the maximum efficiency of your system.”

With forecasters calling for a harsh winter, Gold Medal Service recommends an annual home furnace inspection which is critical to the safety and efficiency of a home's heating system. These inspections serve to improve the efficiency of the system and guarantee the safety of your family. There are several simple do-it-yourself fixes, which could make a difference in the energy costs.

While it is always best to have a licensed technician conduct your annual home heating inspection, knowing the steps for a home heating inspection can ensure that you get superior service. It is best to have your annual home heating inspection completed before the onslaught of cold weather. However, it is still better to conduct the home heating inspection later in the season rather than skipping it completely. All types of combustion-driven heating systems must be checked. This includes oil-fired hot-water boilers for radiator, baseboard and radiant-floor heating, oil-fueled forced-air systems, as well as propane forced-air systems.

Here are the critical steps for every home heating inspection:
1) Check for a carbon-monoxide detector.
2) Check chimneys, flues and vents.
3) Check pilot safety devices on both gas and oil systems.
4) Check the heat exchanger condition.
5) Clean the entire internal area of the furnace for soot in inappropriate places or amounts.
6) Check air-filter presence and condition in forced-air heating systems.
7) Clean motor and fan in forced-air heating systems.
8) Inspect ductwork and hot water piping systems for holes or leaks.
9) Test-start the furnace and test the functioning of the thermostat to make sure it is recording an accurate ambient temperature, then adjust the heat setting to start up the furnace to ensure that it can fire.
10) Check oil/propane tanks to verify the fuel source and gauge the serviceability of the tank (if present) and the lines.

More important, heating system safety checks will keep your family safe and warm all winter long. Gold Medal Service provides heating system safety inspections, and regularly receives the Super Service Award from Angie’s List, a designation given to less than five percent of businesses that maintain a superior service record.
