SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Edison Heating and Cooling prides itself on providing state-of-the-art service and safety precautions throughout the year and, with the coronavirus crisis currently sweeping through New Jersey, the company has stepped up its safety protocols – for both customers and employees – even more. 

“As a declared essential service, we are continuing to serve the residents of New Jersey and remain dedicated to ensuring that our customers’ heating and cooling systems are working properly while also keeping our employees safe,” owner Mike Iarrapino.

During this difficult time, said Iarrapino, increased safety measures have been implemented. “Every technician is required to wear a mask, gloves and booties upon entering a customer’s home or business. Additionally, steps are being taken to ensure that no one at the place of service has been sick or exhibiting any symptoms,” he said.

“[Customers] must pre-qualify that they do not currently or have not had symptoms when they make their appointment, and we will reconfirm with 72 hours of a scheduled visit and again at the customer’s door,” added Iarrapino, noting that any employee who personally exhibits symptoms or has been in contact with someone who has ‘is immediately out for three to four weeks.’ 

“Our goal is to service our customers while keeping them and employees safe at this time,” he said. 

All of Edison’s technicians are trained, certified, licensed and full-time employees not sub-contractors who are knowledgeable about state codes and building regulations and who can sell, install and service all makes and models of HVAC equipment. The spring, said Iarrapino, is the ideal time to conduct regular maintenance of cooling units as well as to have older systems replaced. For those with fairly new units, Iarrapino states that regular maintenance is important; clean filters and coils along with ensuring there is adequate refrigerant, he said, are essential when it comes to making units last longer and run more efficiently. 

“A system that is not running properly will have reduced capacity and use more energy. Routine maintenance will, in the end, cost less and prolong the life of your equipment,” he said, adding, “Efficiency is so important. You don't want to be in the position when, on a 95 degree day, your system decides to break down.”

Edison Heating and Cooling is currently running a variety of spring promotions and there are thousands of dollars in potential state and manufacturer rebates and incentives out as well; current promotions are listed on the company’s website (
