Enjoy an Efficient Heater with Regular Maintenance

Monday, December 2nd, 2019

Maintenance can sometimes seem unnecessary but the truth is it often ends up saving homeowners a pretty penny. What could become an expensive repair or even escalate to a full system replacement can normally be caught with a yearly maintenance check.

This is why we encourage everyone to schedule a heater maintenance check in the months when the weather hasn’t hit it coldest temperatures. Scheduling a heating system check up during fall is best simply because you won’t have to freeze when the heater is off during the check-up.

If you haven’t scheduled a maintenance check for your heater yet, and you still aren’t sure if it is worth it, let us explain why you can (and should) opt in for this annual service.

What is Zone Control? Do I Need it?

Monday, January 14th, 2019

One thing that we talk about a lot is heating efficiency and why it matters. The more efficient your heater is the less energy it wastes. So, when your heater holds an efficiency rating, or AFUE, or 95%, it means that 95% of the energy being used becomes heat for your home. This is super important, as an inefficient heater can lead to costly repairs and sky-high utility bills.

There are a number of things that you can do to improve heating efficiency, one of which is investing in zone control. These systems give you ultimate control of your heating system, allowing you to choose exactly which rooms will be heated. There are numerous advantages to installing a zone control system aside, so we have outlined them for you below.

dog-on-floorA swamp cooler is an excellent cooling solution if you live in a climate that’s as dry as it is hot. We service air conditioning systems in New Mexico, so a lot of our customers have swamp coolers, otherwise known as evaporative coolers.

Thermostat DialA heat pump can keep you just as comfortable as other heating systems, but there are some major ways a heat pump’s operation differs.
