There are many ways to bring that refreshing cool air into your home during these hot summer months. Your local Las Vegas HVAC experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing are here to help you understand what a few of your options are. 

Going ductless is a new and popular way that many homeowners across the country are adopting. It is a permanent fixture that incorporates the use of the outdoor condenser unit but does not require the installation of ducts throughout the residence. But, how do you know if going ductless is for you? What exactly are these systems, and what makes them useful? Here are two examples of ductless systems that could work for you:

Ductless Air Conditioner

The ductless air conditioner is a system that requires little installation and is ideal if ductwork in your home is not an option or you are looking to avoid the costs that come along with duct installation and repair. This system is extremely quiet and cools the entire home. 

Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner

The ductless mini split air conditioner provides zoned air conditioning and heating without ducting. A very common use for the ductless mini split is for air conditioning in multi-family homes or home add-ons that have non-ducted heating systems. You can remotely choose to only condition spaces that are occupied, which saves a lot of energy and money in the long run.

Going ductless can diminish the amount of wasted energy (around 30%, according to Energy.gov!) and money caused by the upkeep of ductwork and potential damages. If you have any more questions about going ductless and you'd like to find out if it could be good fit in your home, contact us at (702) 545-6260 or visit YesAirConditioningandHeating.com for more information.

Summer has arrived and we are feeling the heat. The temperatures in the Las Vegas valley are rising daily, causing HVAC units to work double-time. To kick off the summer season, it’s time for the second installment of Myths vs. Facts with Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating. Read on to find out the truth behind common heating, ventilation and air conditioning myths! 

Myth: You need to change your air filter once a year.

Fact: To save on your energy bill and keep your system running efficiently, your filter should be changed every two to three months. If you feel you’re running your system harder during those summer peak days, we recommend changing them even more often. Dust, dirt, pollen and pet hair are just a few of the culprits clogging up filters and reducing the airflow. Get on a maintenance plan with your Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing services provider and you could save a lot of money in the long run.

Myth: To cool your home faster, turn the temperature a few degrees below the temperature you actually want

Fact: Your AC unit takes hot air in your home and replaces it with cool air at a set rate of speed; you can’t make the unit work any faster by lowering the dial beyond your desired temperature

Myth: There is no need to have your system checked unless there is a problem.

Fact: Just like you maintain a car with fuel, oil, air in your tires, etc., you have to maintain your home’s HVAC unit. Holding off or avoiding routine maintenance checks until there is a problem could lead to more than just an air conditioner tune-up, it could  mean a repair or replacement. Talk to your local Yes! HVAC service provider about affordable maintenance plans to keep your system running efficiently, effectively and safely, all year long.

Now that you’re wise to those common HVAC myths, you’re ready to fight the summer heat. If you have any questions, Yes! Air Conditioning & Heating can help.  Just give us a call at (702) 545-6260 or visit us at http://www.yesairconditioningandheating.com.

Thanks to the Las Vegas desert weather, an HVAC system is an absolute must to ensure comfort is a top priority for all seasons. Whether you’re considering an air conditioner installation or replacement, Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing wants to make sure that all homeowners know that the size of the home determines how big (or small) your HVAC unit should be. It seems simple enough, right? Having an air conditioner that’s not the correct size for the home can be wasteful and environmentally unfriendly. By keeping a small system in a large home, the system is putting in extra work and could be increasing your energy bills. A system too large for your home can waste money unnecessarily and make your residence feel like you’re stuck in a blizzard.

Before a new air conditioner installation, have your home sized by a professional technician from Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing. Our HVAC experts can make recommendations based on a number of factors including the amount of sunlight the residence receives, where the air conditioning unit will be installed, how many people live in the home and so on.  From there, your technician will be able to determine the best and most energy efficient unit for your home.

Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to help you determine the correct size air conditioning unit for your Las Vegas home. If you need to contact Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing for any air conditioning troubleshooting, call (702) 545-6260 or visit us at www.yesairconditioningandheating.com

Have you fallen victim to heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) myths? If you’ve been told closing air vents in unused rooms in your home will allow faster or more concentrated airflow into other rooms, or that leaving your ceiling fan on while you’re not home will help cool the house faster, then you’ve come to the right place to learn the facts. Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to educate you on common heating, ventilation and air conditioning myths so you can stop wasting energy and potentially start saving money!

Myth: Home warranties for new construction cover defects during the HVAC installation process and the materials used to make the unit.

Fact: Regular HVAC maintenance tasks such as replacing your air filter, inspections, changing the fan belt and lubrication are your own responsibility. If you choose to wait until your warranty period is almost up, or if you choose to do these tasks on your own, you could end up with a costly HVAC repair bill. Instead, find an HVAC provider that offers its own warranty for all repair and maintenance work performed on your unit.

Myth: If you close air vents in certain rooms that are not being used, you will help push air into rooms you are using to reduce the load on your HVAC system and save money on your electric bill.

Fact: If you have a modern forced air and heating system, the pressure load is balanced throughout the house. Blocking the vent can impact how the system inhales and exhales air; in other words, it can throw the system out of balance, causing it to have to work harder or possibly break down. Shutting off air flow in rooms can eventually ruin the compressor, resulting in potentially costly HVAC repairs or unit replacement. Instead, leave all vents open so air can circulate throughout your home at a balanced rate.

Myth: Leaving your ceiling fan on will cool a room, especially while you’re not home.

Fact: Fans cool your skin, not the air. Fans do not lower room temperature. A fan works by circulating the air in a space; when the air moves across the skin, we feel cooler even though the air temperature in the room remains the same. If a fan runs in a room when no one is there, no one is feeling its benefits, so it’s probably just raising your monthly electricity bill.  

Myth: Residential heat pumps do not have a long life cycle because they operate 12 months of the year. 

Fact: Dirt, improper application and service and lack of preventative maintenance top the list for heat pump failures. If you uphold the maintenance on your pumps, just like your air conditioning unit, your pump will last much longer than if it wasn’t properly maintained.

Be sure to check back with us later this month for the second part of the Myths vs. Facts series. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your air conditioner maintenance or repair needs, the Las Vegas Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts can help.

In Las Vegas, we know what it means to feel the heat. Summer is just around the corner but as we wait for the triple-digits to fall upon us, why not get a jumpstart on keeping ourselves (and our homes) cool? There is one important thing about the warmer months that homeowners often forget to consider: their HVAC system.

If you’re like most Vegas homeowners, your HVAC unit is about to start working overtime.  To help it run at full strength, here are a few things that our experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing would like to share that you can do to ensure your system is ready for the summer:

  1. Change Your Filters Regularly – This is an important part of HVAC maintenance, and one we can’t stress enough. It is the easiest (and least expensive) way to take care of your system. Filters should be replaced at least once every three months. A new filter helps the entire system work better and more effectively, while also keeping your indoor air clean and healthy for your family.
  2. Check your Freon – Low levels of refrigerant could indicate a leak, which is both an environmental and operational hazard.  Contact Yes! to check your Freon for you. If your levels are too low, you are going to need more to cool your home during the hotter months.
  3. Calibrate your Thermostat – If you haven’t already purchased a digital thermostat, you may want to consider one. Your thermostat setting could be misreading the temperature in your home and causing your air conditioning to run unnecessarily.  You can adjust the settings on your a digital thermostat which could help you to save money on your energy bill.

Whatever you need to do to prepare your home and HVAC for the summer, Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing can help. Just give us a call at (702) 545-6260 or visit us at http://www.yesairconditioningandheating.com.

When purchasing a new or used home, homeowners in Vegas (or anywhere else) usually look at the room sizes, the yard, the floor plan, and the other visible amenities. What about the things you can’t see? What about the plumbing?

When was the last time you sat and pondered the performance of the pipes and sewers that deliver and remove water from your home? Most homeowners do not realize how intricate the plumbing is in relation to their home. They do not consider the importance of a proficient installation and continued maintenance of their pipes. If homeowners want to make sure their pipes and plumbing work for an average of 30 years they need to be diligent about their plumbing maintenance.

How can you do that? Maintenance is the easiest way. Have someone check your pipes, lines, and sewage on a regular basis. Be sure it’s guaranteed.

At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, you can receive an annual 75 point health and safety inspection and a water heater safety check and flush to protect your plumbing system and home. On top of everything, our services are 100 percent guaranteed.

To discuss the plumbing in your home, contact us at (702) 425-1889 today and visit our website at www.yesplumbing.com.

Spring is here and in Las Vegas, that means heat. As the temperature crawls outside upward, you will want your home to stay at a more comfortable temperature, right? We understand. In fact, our skilled technicians at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing get asked for helpful tips on air conditioner maintenance all the time.

Here are four tips to help you take care of your air conditioner and heater.

  1. Stop Changing. Typically, change is a good thing unless we are talking about your HVAC unit. If you are hot and turn your temperature all the way down, guess what? Your house doesn’t get cooler, quicker. Your AC just has to work harder, longer.
  2. Size Matters. The size of the home determines the best size of HVAC for it. If you have a nice 2,800 square-foot home but a little HVAC outside working, that means it will have to work twice as much and charge you twice as much as well.
  3. Install Properly. Does your HVAC makes any strange noises? If so, it is possible that the unit was not installed properly and needs to be inspected immediately because that is money flying through those vents. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “improper installation can reduce system efficiency by up to 30 percent.”  
  4. Change the Filter. There’s a reason that homeowners are encouraged to change their filters every three months. The cleaner your filter is, the better it works to clear your home of allergens. If the filter is full of dust and other debris, most of that is lingering in your home.

If you have any other questions, we’re here for you. Call us at (702) 545-6260 today or visit us at http://www.yesairconditioningandheating.com/.

Seems like a strange question, coming from an air conditioning and heating company like Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, but it’s a question you should ask yourself as we approach the warmer months.

Insulation is not something that should be placed everywhere in your home, but if placed in the right areas, it can save you money. From attic insulation to radiant barriers, there are opportunities to save your Las Vegas home’s cooled air, or even heated air when it’s still chilly outside.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, radiant barriers are more effective in hot climates than in cool climates, much like Las Vegas. This is noted when cooling air ducts are located in the attic. It has been shown that radiant barriers can reduce cooling costs five to 10 percent when used in a warm, sunny climate in some studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy.

It’s never too late to consider the best insulation solutions for your home. Give us a call at (702) 545-6260 or visit us online at www.theyesmancan.com.

It’s a moment no homeowner wants to face: you go to your furnace to warm up the house and just as the heater churns up, a horrible sound erupts and it just shuts down.

The good news? There are warning signs. Here are three key warning signs, from our expert HVAC technicians at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing:

  1. Strange Noises. We just mentioned it, but did the noises go unanswered? Rattling? Banging? Popping? Anything that just shouldn’t be coming from that unit tucked away in the special closet?  Older furnaces make these when their lifespan is coming to an end.
  2. No Blue Flame. A blue flame shows natural gas coming out of your furnace in its purest form. A yellow flame means your furnace is producing carbon monoxide. Unless you have a CO2 warning system in your home, this is something that means your unit needs to be checked manually, by the home owner and by a skilled technician.
  3. High Costs. Your bill is much more than expected. No one enjoys getting unwelcome bills in the mail that say you have to pay much more than you planned. Many problems could be causing this, but which ones? Air ducts, heat pumps or even a thermostat in trouble can cause that heating bill to skyrocket.

How will you know about any of these issues unless you get them inspected? Our Yes! HVAC experts encourage regular maintenance of your furnace to save the heat for your home – not your head when you see your next bill. Call us at 702-545-6260.

Giving back to our community in Las Vegas is something that Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing has been doing for more than 50 years. And what we are doing with the Clark County School District (CCSD) is no different.

Together, Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating and the CCSD have created a community partnership program called “Yes! Think Green Contest” for the young minds of Clark County.  The “Yes! Think Green Contest” encourages elementary, middle and high school students to think about and raise awareness of energy conservation.

"It is particularly important that we get the kids in Clark County to start thinking about energy conservation from an early age,” said Beverly Mason, director, Clark County School District School-Community Partnership Program. “Youth are more likely to develop life-long environmentally healthy habits when they learn about energy conservation at a young age.  We appreciate the support from community partners in providing educational enrichment opportunities like this contest. It provides additional opportunities to reinforce what we are already teaching.”

We are thrilled to see so much support for a cause that means so much to our skilled heating and air conditioning technicians at Yes!, as well as the many young students in the CCSD.

If your student is part of the Clark County education system, we encourage you to get them involved. All entries must include a thorough explanation of the idea, the potential impact of the idea on the economy and/or community, and how the idea can be implemented throughout the Las Vegas community. Projects must be submitted via email to yesthinkgreen@boltpr.com no later than Mar. 1, 2014.

From January 20 to March 1, Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing is teaming up with the Clark County School District (CCSD) to raise awareness about energy conservation among students in grades K – 12.

“Our hope is that we can spark an interest in our youth to think about the impact they can make on our environment and share those ideas with the community so we can start making changes right here in Las Vegas,” said Lance Fernandez, regional manager, Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing Las Vegas.

At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we believe the best thing we can do for our communities in the greater Las Vegas area is to serve them in any way possible. From HVAC maintenance advice to guaranteed service with air conditioning and heating repair, we care about the residents in our city.

We had the privilege to serve Las Vegas in other aspects, like we did earlier this month with the Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada (CCSN). Yes! HVAC technicians partnered with Catholic Charities Meals on Wheels in a program we call the “Yes! Cares Senior Program.”

According to the CCSN newsletter discussing our partnership, “Yes Air Conditioning & Plumbing provided full inspections, home weatherization and heating products at no cost” for the growing numbers of homebound Las Vegas seniors. We understand many our Las Vegas seniors may understand the importance of home air quality, duct cleaning and annual maintenance, but can’t afford it.

That’s why we say “Yes!” Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Las Vegas.

On behalf of every technician at Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating, we mean that in the nicest way possible. We understand the economy is hard but if your heater is on the brink, the way to warm yourself is not with a space heater going full blast in the house. As you noticed recently, the weather can get really cold even in Las Vegas.

Consider other ways to take care of your heating needs that are safer for you, your family and home:

What’s that smell?

When your heater hasn’t been turned on in a while, you will catch a whiff of something burning. In Las Vegas, that could be mistaken for anything in a desert, but it is actually the dust in your heating coils. Don’t worry, just plan on getting more routine (and very cost effective) heating maintenance.

'Tis the Season to be Careful.

Our CBS affiliate, 8 News Now, did a story last week about the scary side of space heaters in the winter. Fires increase in homes dramatically during the winter, which is reason to think about how you heat your home. "The winter months are the time of year most people die in fires [related to space heaters]," Tim Szymanski with Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said. In that same story, Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating’s own Jake Lyon was quoted on what can prevent senseless tragedies.

Maintenance is Key

Jake mentioned in the 8 News Now story that simple maintenance on your heater can ensure better heat and output during the winter months.

"Certainly if there is any kind of burning smell, turn the system off at the thermostat and call your contractor out," Lyon said. "The easiest thing for most people to do is to write the installation date on your filter. Even if you buy a three-month filter, you should replace it every thirty days."

If you have any questions about your heater or furnace, just say “Yes” and contact us today.

LAS VEGAS -- Holiday lights are twinkling across the valley. The holidays have arrived, but so have cold weather and plunging temperatures.

Fire experts warn home fires increase dramatically when people try to heat their homes for the first time during the winter season.

"The winter months are the time of year most people die in fires," Tim Szymanski with Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said.

Szymanski said the risk of fire isn't the only threat. Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur if a heating device malfunctions, or a homeowner doesn't properly use it.

"It's what we call the silent killer. It's tasteless, odorless, invisible. It will be absorbed by the human body two hundred times faster than the oxygen that you breathe," he said. 

Szymanski added when the weather turns cold, some people turn to unconventional ways to stay warm, such as turning on their ovens. Szymanski says that is a bad idea.

"They put out very little heat, but put out tremendous amounts of carbon monoxide, and that's a poison that will overcome you. You're actually getting more poison than you are heat," Szymanski said.

Jake Lyon with Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing said simple maintenance can ensure your heating unit works properly during the cold months. Most homeowners will crank up the heat when temperatures drop. If it's the first time you're turning it on this season, having the unit serviced can be helpful.

"Certainly if there is any kind of burning smell, turn the system off at the thermostat and call your contractor out," Lyon said. "Your filter, that is the easiest thing for most people is to every month write the date on it. Even if you buy a three-month filter, you should replace it every thirty days."

While people enjoy the holidays in their homes, fire officials said planning can prevent a tragedy.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said space heaters can also be a popular way to stay warm, but many fires come from people misusing them.

Following the instructions and keeping the devices at least three feet way from flammable items can prevent many fires from starting.

Right about this time in Las Vegas, the temperatures start to drop and we feel a chill in the air. It’s about this same time that we look forward to heating up the house and getting cozy on the couch. But when the heater hasn’t been used for six months or more, homeowners are often greeted by an unpleasant burning scent coming from their air ducts. To avoid this unpleasant situation, the experts at Yes! Las Vegas, a leading heating and air conditioning maintenance and repair company, encourage you to keep these heating and furnace maintenance tips in mind:

  1. Schedule regular HVAC cleaning and maintenance. By keeping your system tuned up, you could save money on your electricity bill and extend the life of your furnace. Dirty air ducts with dirt buildup causes friction and forces your heating system to consume more energy, resulting in a higher energy bill.  
  2. Clean your ducts. If your home fills up with a burning-like scent the first few times you turn on your furnace this fall, it means duct cleaning is in order. Regular duct maintenance prevents dirt buildup, which creates the alarming burning scent. 
  3. Maintain consistent temperatures. Regular furnace maintenance and cleaning also helps maintain a consistent temperature throughout all the rooms in your home. Dirt can often sneak into the air filters of your furnace, which prevents heat from being generated. 

If you live in Las Vegas or the surrounding communities, call us today at (702) 545-6260 to schedule a fall furnace tune-up to save money and keep your home comfortable this fall and winter.

During the summer, your attic space can get incredibly hot as the sun beats down on your roof. If you don’t have good insulation in the floor of your attic, that heat can leech into your home and not only affect your comfort, but potentially cause issues with your air conditioning system. The Las Vegas attic insulationinstallation and repair professionals at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing have years of experience working with all kinds of attic insulation projects. We wanted to alert our customers with a quick blog post about the importance of attic insulation.

The Importance of Attic Insulation

While you might use your attic space for storage, it actually is sealed off from the rest of your home. Making sure that your home is well-insulated from your attic is critical to your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. If your attic insulation is old, thin or worn out it could allow a lot of heat to leak into your home which has a number of consequences.

  • Reduced efficiency – With the heat coming into your home, your AC system will have to work overtime to get rid of that heat which reduces its efficiency.
  • Decreased comfort – If your home is constantly bombarded by heat from the attic it could reduce the comfort throughout your home.
  • Increased energy usage – When your air conditioner has to work harder to cool your home it likely means that your energy usage will increase.

Attic Insulation Options

If you’ve never had your attic insulation inspected call the Las Vegas attic insulation professionals at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing. If we find that your insulation isn’t working well we can help you figure out the next steps to take. Here are a few options that you can consider to improve the insulation in your attic.

  • Rolls and Blown-In – This type of insulation is very common and provides very efficient heat resistance. It can also be installed very quickly.
  • Radiant barriers – While traditional insulation is able to resist several types of heat transfer, it isn’t very good at resisting heat radiation. Radiant barriers consist of a thin layer of material, similar to aluminum foil, which is applied to one of the layers of your roof.

If you’re interested in Las Vegas attic insulation services just call Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing today.
