Here’s a Great Option for Air Conditioning if Your Home Doesn’t Have Room for Ducts

Monday, August 1st, 2016

The window air conditioner was a huge innovation when it appeared in the 1950s. For the first time, homes and offices had access to an affordable way to stay cool. It’s hard to overemphasize how important this was for a climate like that in Las Vegas: one of our biggest growth booms ever occurred because of the new availability of air conditioning for residential buildings.

AC Myth: Shutting Room Vents Won’t Help You Save Energy!

Monday, July 11th, 2016

This helps to control the direction that air flows into a room. But it also makes people believe they can close off the vent entirely to prevent cool air from reaching the room. This, they imagine, is a way to save energy by keeping the air conditioner from cooling down a room that’s currently empty.
