Watch Out for These Seasonal Heat Pump Issues

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

It’s nice when the hot weather in Las Vegas cools off for the winter. It’s a mild winter, of course, but it’s a pleasant break from the sweltering heat of much of the rest of the year.

On the other hand . . . our homes will need heating when the temperature drops below the 50s during the night. This is where having a heat pump is great: it does a fantastic job of cooling of a house during the many hot days, and can handle our occasional cold days and nights easily.

We want to help you keep your heat pump in good shape until it settles back into cooling mode. Here are some winter troubles your heat pump may encounter.

The Benefits of Duct Sealing This Fall

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Have you noticed any of the following recently when your AC (or heater) is running?

  • Strange rattling sounds coming from the vents.
  • Musty or moldy smells in the rooms.
  • Hot or cold spots in the house where you don’t expect them.
  • A rise in utility bills that doesn’t correspond to an increase in cooling or heating use.

All of these signs can point toward damage in the air ducts that’s allowing air to escape from them. This is a common trouble with residential ventilation systems that can easily escape people’s notice. Although there are other possibilities for these symptoms, you should contact HVAC specialists and have the ductwork tested to make sure. If you have leaky ducts, professional duct sealing will solve the problem.

Should I Have My Ducts Tested?

Monday, July 25th, 2016

When you think of your AC, you probably think of the large outdoor and indoor units, which contain all of the  major components of any air conditioning system: compressor, condenser, evaporator, and air handler, among numerous others. But let’s not forget about the ducts. Your sheet metal or flexible ductwork is responsible for transporting your cooled air throughout the home. If yours aren’t working properly, then neither is your air conditioner.

How Often Should You Test You Carbon Monoxide Detectors?

Monday, February 8th, 2016

Does your home use natural gas to power any of its appliances, such as a furnace, stove, oven, or clothes dryer? Chances are high that it does, since natural gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity, and it’s also convenient.

However, using natural gas in a home does bring with it the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless and odorless byproduct of the combustion of natural gas, which makes it difficult to detect it when its levels rise. You must have CO detectors in your home that will alert you when the concentration of CO reaches potentially hazardous levels. The alarm will give you time to leave the house and call for help before anyone can suffer from the adverse effects of CO exposure.
