Do You Need a Water Softener?

Monday, February 22nd, 2021

Tapwater flowing into a kitchen sink and down the plughole.The idea of soft or hard water might seem….silly to some people. It’s water so if it is hard, isn’t it ice? Technically speaking yes, but when we are referring to hard water we are referring to what is in the water more than its temperature. While the term may seem odd to someone who has never encountered it before, understanding what hard water is and why it is a problem is important to your daily life and the well-being of your plumbing.

At IERNA We Began 2021 With a Blood Drive

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

IERNA’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing Continues Contributing to Community through COVID-19.

Tampa, FL. – January 26 – IERNA’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing (Lutz, FL) started the new year off with a curbside blood drive, partnering with Florida-based blood donation center, OneBlood on January 5th. Collecting more than 20 pints of whole blood, IERNA’s was determined to begin 2021 with a bang during their first of many charitable events throughout the year.

“IERNA’s has always been a family and community-oriented company,” said Charlene Ierna, Owner and President of the company. “Our first and foremost priority is giving back to the ones that have given so much to us. Without them, we would not be able to provide the services we offer.”

According to American Red Cross, one blood donation can potentially save up to three lives. Less than 38 percent of the population is eligible to give blood or platelets, giving rise to the importance of volunteer donors.

“It is never a matter of whether or not we will do it,” Ierna said, when asked if the company will continue to do blood drives. “It is about “When is the next one?”. Especially due to the events of the past year, if you’re fortunate enough to do so, giving back to those in need in whatever way you can is insurmountably valuable.”

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. is in need of blood and since blood and platelets cannot be manufactured, voluntary donations are always in great demand.

Each donor was given a long-sleeve t-shirt, restaurant voucher, $20 gift card as well as a wellness checkup including a COVID-19 antibody test. IERNA’s was on site handing out their own swag including custom hand-sanitizer pens.

Donation appointments are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and are open to the public. Follow IERNA’s Heating, Cooling & Plumbing on social media to be notified about their next blood drive on April 1st.
