Make Sure You Service Your AC before It Gets Too Hot!

Las Vegas is currently going through a bit of a cool period. This is a relative statement, of course, since “cool” for us means temperatures hovering in the 80s.

Major AC Problems You Can Avoid Thanks to Spring Maintenance

Check That Air Filter: What Are You Breathing Every Day?

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Whether you’re still using your heating system or you’ve already switched over to the air conditioner (and considering the weather, we’d wager that it’s the latter, not the former), it’s always a good idea to make a regular check on the system air filter. If, like most homes, you have a heating and cooling system housed in a single cabinet connected to a blower fan, then the same air filter does the job of protecting the components inside from any contaminants that might come through the return air ducts.
