In recent years, Las Vegas hotels including those located on the famous “Las Vegas Strip”, have turned their attention and focused their efforts toward becoming more environmentally-conscious. Many have even received the prestigious LEED award (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for their energy efficiency and efforts to reduce energy usage from air conditioning and heating.
Las Vegas hotels are doing their part to contribute to the sustainability of the planet, and Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing is proud that other businesses have taken “green” initiatives to improve the lives of our Las Vegas residents.
We’d like to highlight a few of these outstanding hotels which are “going green” in Las Vegas:
The Palazzo has been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver award for their minimal use of energy. Green features include a state-of-the-art water-recycling project and special sensors installed to automatically adjust the temperature in each room to a comfortable level according to guest occupancy. Rooms are equipped with master light switches making it easy for guests to remember to switch off the lights before leaving.
Encore at Wynn Las Vegas
Another well-known Las Vegas destination, Encore at Wynn was built and designed with conservation in mind. The building is equipped with a management system that controls outside lighting to respond to nighttime hours, allows temperature controls in unoccupied spaces, and utilizes energy-efficient HVAC equipment such as motors, pumps and light fixtures.
M Resort, Spa and Casino
M Resort’s commitment to environmental responsibility and energy conservation is evident in the construction of the resort. The orientation of the tower itself is energy-efficient by facing north and south, reducing the impact of direct sunlight from the east and west. M Resort also utilizes natural lighting via skylights to reduce the lighting requirements, and energy-efficient lighting fixtures.

Air conditioning efficiency is generally described by its SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating, which currently ranges from 13 to 231. The higher numbers on the SEER scale indicate the most efficient units, offering the most energy savings, year after year.

Is your air conditioner older than ten years old? Does it require frequent repairs? Can it be heard making strange noises? It can be difficult to know whether you should continue to repair your existing system, or whether it makes more sense to replace it with a brand new unit. The air conditioning replacement experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing in Las Vegas aim to help you through all phases of maintaining, repairing or replacing your heating and air conditioning system. Here are just a few considerations to keep in mind when it comes to your HVAC system:
Are certain rooms in your home hotter or cooler than others?
Problems with your ducts, insufficient insulation or incorrect equipment operation could be to blame for uneven temperatures around the home. Your best option is to contact a skilled HVAC technician to discuss all of your options.
Are you noticing excessive dust around your home? If you haven’t cleaned your home in a while, that could be the reason for excessive dust around the house. But, it could also be your HVAC system! Ducts can pull dust and particles from your attic and basements if not properly sealed.
Have you been experiencing frequent repairs and HVAC costs in the past year, much more than usual? If you find yourself making frequent calls for repairs and incurring higher costs for your HVAC unit, it may be time to bring in the experts to evaluate your system and make a recommendation. Over the years, heating and cooling systems becomes less efficient and, eventually, a replacement will be needed.
How old is your unit? If your unit is ten years or older, it may be time to consider a new heating and air conditioning system. A new unit with an ENERGY STAR label could save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs per year1.
Is there excessive noise that is coming from your central air conditioner? There a number of reasons you could be hearing noise from your system, such as a problem with an undersized duct system or the indoor coil of your cooling equipment. Just as you would call a mechanic if your car is making strange or excessive noise, you’ll want to call your trusted HVAC experts if your air conditioner is doing the same.
Is your home feeling humid? Your home is bound to be humid during the hot summer months, right? Not if your system is working correctly. A number of things can cause the air to be uncomfortably dry in the winter and humid in the summer. One of which is that the ducts are not properly sealed. Call in the experts to help you determine if your system is not working properly and evaluate the options.
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment to determine if your system needs maintenance, repair or replacement, or if you have any additional questions about your HVAC unit, please call the Las Vegas heating, air conditioning and indoor air quality specialists at Yes! at (702) 545-6260 or visit www.yesairconditioningandheating.com.
Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating is committed to educating homeowners in Las Vegas about proper indoor air care. As National Care About Your Indoor Air month comes to a close, we want to outline a few easy practices you can carry with you through the rest of the year to ensure that the air you breathe in your home is as clean as possible.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency1, indoor air has been found to be two to five times more polluted than that of outdoor air. Ensuring that the quality of air you breathe inside your home is as clean as possible could be easier than you think!
Some of the main causes of indoor air pollution are pollen, mold and other airborne pathogens2. With that in mind, consider having a mold test kit on hand to test your home at any given time so proper resolutions can be put in place, if needed. These can be found online or at your local hardware store. A common cause of mold is leaks in your home that allow moisture to build up3. To prevent leaks, it is recommended to have your foundation and roof checked at least once a year.
Another potential cause of air pollution in the home is allergens, such as dust and pet dander. To diminish the potential side effects of these pollutants, make sure to have your air filters changed regularly by a trusted heating and air conditioning technician. Depending on the type of filter that is being utilized in your home, filters may be changed as often as every three months. Warding off dust mites will help prevent further allergens from entering the home. A few options to keep these pests at bay, include: removing carpet or rugs in high trafficked areas, vacuum and clean furniture that is covered with upholstery, and dust tables and other furniture to get rid of any build-up accumulated throughout the week.
If you have additional questions about how to ensure your indoor air is at its cleanest, or if you are interested in scheduling an appointment to change your air filters, please call the Las Vegas heating, air conditioning and indoor air quality specialists at Yes! at (702) 545-6260 or visit www.yesairconditioningandheating.com.
