Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

We enjoy a short winter season in Las Vegas, but we still need to have heating systems running during some of our evenings.

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.

Today, however, the window AC is an inferior method for household cooling. If you use window air conditioners for your home because there’s no ductwork (or space to build it), you may imagine you don’t have any other option when it comes to hot weather comfort.

When Should I Replace My Old Air Conditioning System?

Monday, June 20th, 2016

You never want to run the risk in Las Vegas of getting trapped during the summer with a busted home air conditioning system. After all, the heat here tends to be pretty unforgiving.

Is It Time to Retire Your Old AC and Put in a New One?

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Few parts of the country put air conditioners under as much strain as Las Vegas. Our summer season is long and extends far into the seasons around it. And when it gets hot, it’s record-breaking heat that can make even a few minutes outside unbearable. Air conditioning systems can wear down quickly here if they aren’t given regular maintenance.

There are many situations where this is both the most cost-effective solution and the one that will best protect your comfort during hot weather.
