Do you hate the cold?
Are you having trouble finding a comfortable temperature in your home for your family?

We live in Michigan, so we know that winters can be especially rough. At CMR Mechanical, we want to ensure that you and your family are safe and warm, because no one should be without heat. 

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, based on death certificate data from 2006-10, about 2,000 U.S. residents died each year from weather-related causes. The report also found that 63% of these deaths could be attributed to exposure to excessive natural cold, hypothermia or both.
Please take the necessary precautions in cold winter months by following these tips suggested by

  1. Cover your drafty windows with insulated drapes.
