Why it’s time to Start Thinking About AC Install and Repair for Summer

It may not look like it now with the cold snap we just had, but summer is coming, and so is the heat. While we may have our heaters on now, when the warm weather comes, we’ll be ready for the snow to come back. That is of course only for those of us who aren’t getting ready to install or repair our Air Conditioners before it gets too warm out. In a previous entry, we discussed how to do a few basic repairs to our own air conditioning systems that are already in place, but if you’re thinking about buying new and getting started, you’ll be glad to know that the price of a central air conditioning has been on the decline for the last few years now. There are also several other options to keep you cool this summer: Through the Wall Air Conditioners Through the wall ACs are exactly what they sound like – AC units that fit through the wall. Much like window ACs, they are single units that exhaust heat and humidity from the room outside. The unit brings in fresh air from outside and cools it through coils, which releases cool air into the room. These units are generally designed to cool a single room but can be sufficient cooling for a condo, townhome, or individual apartments. However, in order to use these units, you have to cut a hole into your wall and insert a heavy sleeve that is sturdy enough to support the unit. These are great for rooms with a single window or no windows, especially for people who don’t want to lose the use of their windows. Make sure you measure your walls accurately and take account of any wall studs and the thickness of the walls. Using these measurements will help you choose a unit that fits. Window Air Conditioners Just like through the wall air conditioners, window ACs work the same, but they fit in a window instead of a wall, which makes it much easier on homeowners and for people who rent. These ACs don’t require much for installation and normally you can do it yourself. These are awesome and energy efficient if you’re cooling one or two rooms or a small apartment. Most of them are also quiet, although they can be louder than other ACs because everything happens in one unit. They can also...

The 3 Most Common Springtime Plumbing Issues in Denver

Springtime is the worst season for plumbing problems just about everywhere, but because of the crazy weather patterns, Springtime plumbing issues in Denver are especially tricky. Plumbing problems can spring up all year long, but the trend has been that the nastiest problems will rear their ugly heads in during April and May. In Colorado, April is usually our wettest month. It isn’t uncommon for us to see a snowstorm during the night and watching all the ice and snow thaw the next day. The warm sun and the thaws can make it so the plumbing issues we may not have seen in the winter finally make their appearance. Luckily, most of the problems that come along with springtime plumbing are simple fixes, so you won’t have to call a plumber. These are the 3 most common springtime plumbing issues and how to fix them before they start to do serious damage and cost you money! Gutter Trouble Springtime is the biggest time for clogs in drains, gutters and more due to all the new budding leaves on the trees or the debris from the previous fall. This leaf debris can fall unto your gutters and cause clogs as the winter progresses with all the freezes and the thaws. When the rains come in April after a winter full of clogged gutters, you’ve got yourself a castle moat all around your house. Standing water can be dangerous for the structural integrity of your home. You don’t want a lake, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your home’s gutters so that you can avoid these clogs and the water build up that happens as a result of the clog. Wearing rubber shoes with good traction, you can easily stand on a ladder or on your roof to clean out your gutters. Make sure that you’re being very careful, as so many accidents are caused on ladders in the home and the hospital visit will definitely cost you. If you’re cleaning gutters near a power line, make sure you use a plastic ladder, and not a metal one to prevent electric shocks. You can use a hose, gutter scoop, or a gutter cleaning tool that acts similar to a snake for a clogged toilet. Using these tools will help you to clear the debris from your gutters and prevent clogs. Make sure that the downspouts on your...

Is your water heater more than 8 years old?

In 2010, the Department of Energy published its final rules for residential water heaters, which will become effective April 16, 2015.

The appliances themselves will be several times more expensive to both purchase and install compared to existing technologies. Manufacturers will cease production of the old technologies on April 16 of this year, and the supply of older and less expensive pre-rule appliances will eventually be installed and no longer available.
