Wow! We had a fantastic beginning to summer so far. All our many contract customers were serviced, and we managed to install a good amount of new equipment. Since our last fund raiser for A Need We Feed; we kicked off 4 consecutive Sunday fundraising events. The first 3, we managed to raise $1,125.00 for The Integral Heart Family. Most of that money was matched by Global Giving turning it into $2,125.00! The garden has been a huge success going into it's 5th year. In addition; we started another fundraiser for retired US Marine corps veteran Jay Jackson who heads up the famous Fincas Buenas crew in Guatemala. These folks do some incredible charity work helping those living in extreme poverty. Last week the Garden raised $414.00 for Jay and his charity. We will give it a couple more Sundays and then move on to the next.
Just want to thank all our friends and customers for helping us help others. It is truly a wonderful world.
The Magic Garden is opening June 30th from 1 to 4 pm every Sunday. This Spring we held our annual flower drive, and managed to raise $850.00 for "A Need We Feed". A local charity out of Toms River NJ. They help feed disabled veterans and all people in need on the big holidays. This summer we are also collecting used tools for craftsman in Guatemala. We are looking for hand tools, used, non-battery powered. You can follow our Facebook page to "The Magic Garden Debbie and Jim" for available veggies each week!
Have a wonderful Summer!!!
Our Antigua Guatemala tool and school supply run to The Integral Heart Family. A school for over 80 children from extremely impoverished communities. Integral Heart Family feeds, educates, and supplies love and guidance to help these children fight for the future of Guatemala.
Kind words from The Integral Heart Family
"This week we had the great pleasure and honor of receiving Jimmy and Debbie´s visit to our school. Our dear friends did, as every year, a huge donation of tools and school materials for our kids and parents. The point of this is to make easier for the family fathers to make money and to be able to provide for their families with the dignity that their skills give them. The problem is that due to the lack of financial resources the parents can´t afford to buy the tools that they need. Yo Yo and Debbie make sure every year that this doesn´t happen. Here you can see some pictures of their visit and donations. The Integral Heart Family is deeply grateful to our friends of Antigua Mechanical and their ongoing support to our efforts, thank you very much for being part of this family".

Tool donation and safety equipment to Fincas Buenas (San Marcos)
Led by U.S. Marine corp veteran Jay Jackson from Texas. Jay and his band of indigenous Men have been doing just about everything to ease the pain of those who lost their homes during last years volcanic eruption. Building a home a week for people who lost everything, repairing roads, and helping the many victims.
Yoyo has roots with the Onondaga Tribe of the Iroquois Confederacy, just like my cousins Lee Macaulay-Laplante and John Laplante do with the Mohawk Nation, also part of that same Iroquois Confederacy. Maybe they don't think it's that big of a deal, but I have told my brethren of Fincas Buenas for years now, that their Mayan culture is part of a larger group of indigenous people that stretch from North to Central to South America, and it means a lot to see some solidarity across such a vast expanse. One of our biggest supporters over the years from the get-go is also my brother Christopher D Yazzie of the Navajo Nation, whom I served alongside in the United States Marine Corps as well. I owe it to him that our work was able to reach a larger audience in late 2013, and branched out from there. Call it the spirit-world, call it fate, algorithms, luck, or divine intervention, but it's often been a magical journey for me and a profound connection back to nature and I am grateful.This connection of people is something that brings me joy and hope, and I am honored to play any small part in it that I possibly can. Thanks you, thank you, and thank you again. Much love to all of you"
Our final donation was to the Konojel Family. At Konojel indigenous woman are taught Spanish and they get educated in the restaurant trade where they learn the valuable skills of preparing, cooking food, and operating a commercial kitchen. With these skills, they can finally afford to work in the Spanish communities. Thus giving them a viable path to make a much better living. This helps them to feed their own malnourished children and elders, breaking the cycle of extreme poverty.
"Yesterday we received the visit of our friends Jimmy and Debbie!! Thank you so much for your generous donation and for your continue support to our programs and the community of San Marcos La Laguna"
Our yearly tool run to Guatemala begins soon!
Antigua Mechanical has once again helped "The Magic Garden" (a private little farm, that puts it's vegetables up for donation each Sunday for charity. 100% of all donations go directly to the hard working people on the ground, here in New Jersey and abroad).
This past weekend, the customers of Antigua Mechanical donated $438.00 to help two charities in Guatemala. We sent $160.00 to Jay Jackson at Fincas Buenas who is a Marine Corp Veteran rebuilding homes lost in the latest volcanic eruption. We also sent $278.00 to the Konojel Family in Guatemala; where they are teaching indigenous woman to empower themselves and their children through extreme poverty and abuse. We want to thank all our wonderful customers for the constant support and continued business.
Last Weekend, we managed to raise $500.00 for Jay Jackson at https://www.facebook.com/FincasBuenas/ in Guatemala. Many of you may know; our children and friends started a huge garden 5 years ago. On Sundays, we manage to find time to pick a lot of vegetables from this wonderful plot of Earth. 100% of all donations for the vegetables we grow goes to 4 Charities. From "A Need We Feed" in Toms River N.J. To helping a former U.S. Marine corps veteran down on the ground in Guatemala. This coming Sunday, we are planning on raising some money for the Konojel family. Deb, being a woman owner of Antigua Mechanical L.L.C. Loves what Konojel is doing to empower woman. Please check them out and help Andrew (a retired New York City school teacher from Brooklyn) empower woman, feed malnourished children and the elderly www.konojel.org
We have been super busy since April. There is a lot to say about what we have been doing. In May 2018, we auctioned off a bunch of beautiful Petunia plants we grew from seed in our green house. Our plan was to help raise money for a very sick little girl (Maggie) from Howell. She was battling Leukemia for eight months, lost all her hair, and her parents were flat, worn out, physically and financially. With that said, we raised $1,400.00 for Maggie, which took a huge burden off her parents.
We have been working pretty steady, installing new equipment and servicing all our customers (all is very well on the HVAC side of our lives). As you may or may not know; we also tend a very large vegetable and flower garden with a lot of help from family and friends. We have, and continue to have fund raisers every Sunday in the garden from 1 to 4pm.
The last two fundraisers were for "A Need We Feed" www.aneedwefeed.com in Toms River New Jersey. We helped raise over $600.00 for them on July 8th with our vegetable sales / donations from you wonderful customers, and friends out there. On July 10th; A Need We Feed cooked and delivered over 700 gourmet meals to wounded veterans all throughout Ocean county N.J.
Located in Antigua Guatemala. They are feeding and educating some 80 plus mostly homeless children their. They are giving these kids a superb education and arming them with the tools to fight corruption and violence in their country while lifting them out of the horrible lifestyle they were once living in. We raised $300.00 for them and that donation is being matched to make it $600.00
July 22nd, we will be raising money for a very hard working retired U.S. Marine living in impoverished Guatemala. His name is Jay Jackson, and he is building new homes for the thousands of people who lost everything due to the recent volcanic eruptions. If you should have any questions or want to help us to help any of these fine people, please call us, or go to our Facebook page to find out more. You can also donate directly to them if you would like. Our number is (732)-580-3075

Heating Contracts are going out this weekend
MAY18th, We are back from our latest tool drive!
Once again, spring is amongst us. It is time for us to send out our summer contracts and pricing for service calls. This May, we are traveling to Guatemala to help out some friends with a tool drive. We are going to be helping "The Integral Heart Foundation" http://www.integralheartfoundation.org/ ----with school supplies and financial contributions. This help is in addition to the many organizations we support here at home. In fact, Antigua Mechanical L.L.C. has donated thousands in labor, equipment, and funds to various not for profit organizations and people in New Jersey who struggle financially.
What you should know about HVAC CONTRACTS
It is a fact, that most every HVAC company must charge certain fee to the Customer in order to make a profit and stay operational. This is not rocket science. With that said, it takes a minimum of one hour to properly service a single Air Conditioning system---Here in New Jersey, that average labor rate is no less that $100.00 per hour. So how in the world can an HVAC company charge $59.00 / $79.00 / $99.00 for a emergency service contract? The answer is simple "They really can't" What happens is, the normal cost that they did not charge you will be made up against you later. Flat rate pricing is where they make their money back on "The Customer"....Before you sign that HVAC service contract, you should ask if they use a Flat rate pricing system. Chances are, in many cases, your cost of repair will be so expensive, that you will have to settle for a new system.
We don't use flat rate pricing, we offer HVAC service contracts to our customers to give them peace of mind. We perform preventive maintenance to our customers most expensive household appliance (THE HVAC SYSTEM), we protect our customers from inconvenient break downs throughout the cooling or heating season. Our contract customer know that if a breakdown happens we will be out there to fix the problem without any diagnostic fees or emergency service call fees. Furthermore, we give an additional 30% off on all parts to contract customers.
Emergency Repair Example;
Antigua Mechanical L.L.C. repair for defective capacitor.
With contract / repair cost $30.00
Without contract / repair cost $210.00
Flat rate companies repair for defective capacitor
With contract / $350.00
without contract / $500.00
Beware of the cheap contract.
We are thankful to all our fantastic customers. This fall season was a huge success. We are pleased to announce that we are up to date with all our installations. Thank you!!! Have a wonderful holiday season :)
