 Shout Out

"I had a tech from Sundance Energy Services come to the house for my bi-annual furnace cleaning. I got burned one time when I let it go too long and after several years of neglect, my furnace went out. If only I had arranged for a cleaning.  Now, Sundance is a regular part of my fall 'Get Ready For Winter' plan!"

Please send your announcements, congratulations, testimonials and thank you's to
