How Do I Know When to Service My Heating System?

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Your heater is a complex system, with electrical and mechanical components that the average homeowner could not repair without the help of an HVAC professional. Heating technicians go through years of training to know how to work on heating systems of all sizes. But how do you know when it’s time to make the call for professional service?

What Is a Modulating Furnace?

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Your furnace doesn’t run nonstop (unless there is something wrong with it). Instead, it switches on when the temperature in your home drops too low and then shuts off once it is within an acceptable temperature range. However, when it shuts off, you might find that parts of the room still don’t feel warm enough for comfort. Until the system cycles on again, you may struggle to keep warm.

I “made bail” to support MDA!

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

We Made Bail!

In our efforts to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and make “bail”;  we raised a total of $720 dollars! to free Richard Williams!

Spending time in MDA Lock-Up has been a great experience — and very rewarding. We want to thank all of our supporters for helping secure our release from MDA Lock-Up. We especially want to thank:

  • Bentley Chiropractic, Dr. Bob Bentley
  • Budget Blinds of Farmington
  • Lusk Family Dentistry, Dr. Jared Lusk

… for their generous donations! We appreciate the event organizers, the other “in-mates”, and especially Officer Erikson for giving us a 1st class ride to the “jailhouse”.

Our donations not only helped secure Richard’s release from MDA Lock-Up. But more importantly, it’s going to help save and improve the lives of children and adults in our community fighting life-threatening muscle disease. It’ll speed MDA progress in muscle disease research and care, and it’s going to help send kids with muscle disease to MDA summer camp during its 60th anniversary celebrations throughout 2015.

A HUGE THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you for your support at the 2015 San Juan County Fair!

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

This year’s 2015 San Juan County Fair gave us some fantastic numbers!

  • 90,000 People attended the fair!

  • We gave out …

    • 2,500 Balloons
    • 500 Chip Clips
    • 250 Footballs
    • Countless Pens
    • 3 BBQ Tool Sets
    • 3 Aprons
    • And 1 COLEMAN BBQ Grill!

We were so impressed with the kids that came by. Most all of them said PLEASE and THANK YOU for their balloons without being asked. It was really heart-warming to see these great kids and their parents having so much fun.

We had so much fun choosing winners during the fair. There were many different types of folds on the drawing cards from people who were trying to get a winner’s edge. We had some good laughs enjoying their creativity!

We loved seeing the mascots of other companies who stopped by to take a rest by our air conditioner. We were glad to be able to help give them a breather during the fair. It does not hurt to have an air conditioning booth in the middle of summer! The best part was being able to inform and educate those with questions about their heating and cooling system. We talked with a few hundred people and were able to help some make decisions about what options might be best for them. Making decisions about the most used appliance in your house shouldn’t be taken lightly! We make every effort to give as much information as possible so our customers, friends, and family so you can make the best decision possible. It’s always nice to have a professional’s opinion.

We had so much fun this year; we will definitely be at the fair next year. We wouldn’t miss it for the world! See you at San Juan County Fair 2016!

What’s Wrong with My Evaporative Cooler?

Monday, September 14th, 2015

In our area of New Mexico, a lot of homes have evaporative coolers installed to help homeowners keep cool. An evaporative cooler (also known as a swamp cooler) is an ideal system in dry areas, since it efficiently cools homes by moving air over damp pads. The water must be able to evaporate as this happens, however, which is why evaporative coolers are ineffective when humidity levels are high.

Could Your Family Benefit from an Air Cleaner with a UV Bulb?

Monday, September 7th, 2015

Your air conditioning and heating system has an air filter in place that helps to keep harmful contaminants from recirculating through your air. But does this mean that your family is protected against bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that often lead to health troubles? Unless you have a UV air purifier in place, you may not have the protection necessary to eliminate these bio-contaminants from the air.
