The last 18 months have been challenging for everyone. The Home Performance Experts at Barron have worked diligently to ensure that our customers throughout Northwest Washington continue to receive top-notch home services—especially during a time where we are spending more time indoors than ever before.

As the pandemic continues to bring upon new challenges, the home services industry is dealing with an equipment shortage and an increase in demand for HVAC services. This raises a couple of questions from homeowners:
