September 10th, 2018

waterOwning and operating a commercial property is a major responsibility. It does not really matter what type of business you find yourself in. Whatever it may be, you only stand to benefit by keeping your clients, tenants, and/or employees comfortable at all times. You also want to protect the integrity of any products that you may have in your property. This is why a commercial dehumidifier may be necessary. And if one is, you can count on us to install the right one, the right way.

Are You Breathing Air of a High Quality?

August 27th, 2018

UV-lightIt feels pretty safe to say that most homeowners are going to prioritize maintaining comfortable temperatures in their home. Around here, that typically means running their air conditioning systems throughout much of the year, thanks to our hotter climate, though we use our heating systems to do so in the winter, too. What too many homeowners overlook, unfortunately, is the quality of the air in their homes. This should be every bit as big a priority.

Now, the tricky thing about maintaining great indoor air quality is that poor indoor air quality may not be quite as obvious as, say, very hot temperatures in one’s home. Additionally, there are some causes of low indoor air quality that truly are beyond our means of control. The fact that you cannot do much to address the influencing factor, however, does not mean that you cannot successfully manage the symptom. Here are some situations to be aware of, courtesy of your trusted HVAC company in Flora Vista, NM.

Old AC? When Enough Is Enough

July 30th, 2018

man-with-fanWhen it comes to air conditioning replacements, there is one question that we hear time and time again—how old is too old? The answer that we have to give right off the bat is not always one that homeowners want to hear: that all depends. Sure, the age of your air conditioning system is definitely something that you should keep in mind if you are thinking about replacing it sometimes soon. It’s really not the deciding factor that some homeowners seem to think it is, though.

The estimated lifespan of any given air conditioner may be a bit on the conservative side. We also live in a very hot area, but it’s also quite dry. Some homeowners may not run their air conditioners quite as much as others, particularly throughout the night. Your diligence in terms of changing air filters and scheduling AC tune-ups can also inform how long your air conditioner is really going to last, as well as your overall individual priorities. So here are some tips from your Waterflow, NM HVAC pros regarding when to replace your AC.
