Service Business - Should I List My Address for Better Search Results?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We are a local heating and air business and provide services in people's homes, not at our business address.  There is no reason for people to come to our office, since we provide no services there.  So we have not listed our address in our My Business page listing.  Is this hurting our search results?  Would we get better search results if we listed the address.  I see that 90%+ of our competitors, who are also service businesses who provide service in homes DO list their address.

How do you hide your address? I work from home and I do not want the picture of my house showing in search results. Thanks.
