Yes! Blog

If you’ve been following our blog for sometime, you may know about our ongoing partnership with the USO Las Vegas. Working with the local military, active duty and veterans of Las Vegas has always been a big initiative for our team at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing. We started a relationship with the USO team back in 2014, and the partnership has just grown from there. 

USO Las Vegas is dedicated to lifting the spirits of American troops and their families by providing a home away from home to all Active Duty, National Guard, Reservists, and their families, and offering family-strengthening and morale-boosting programs and services to the more than 75,000 active duty service members and their families stationed in southern Nevada.

During our partnership, we’ve hosted holiday drives for toys and food, attended military family dinners and activities, and more. Not only have we been able to see how our support helps the organization, but also how much it has meant to the families. It has been deeply moving for our team and furthered our commitment to continue supporting our community through philanthropic partnerships.

Most recently, we held our second annual holiday toy drive. We encouraged our employees to donate at least one toy at our company’s annual holiday party. We also invited the community to drop off new, unwrapped toys at our office.  All toys were recently delivered to the USO Las Vegas office just in time for the holidays to be given to children of military families.  

We’re thrilled to be signing off this year with our holiday donation to USO Las Vegas. From Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we wish all our customers, and the residents of Las Vegas, a safe and Happy New Year!

The holiday season is here! With the holidays come parties, houseguests, festivities and more. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, don’t forget to prep your home for the extra traffic coming through your home. 

Keep these simple safety tips in mind in order to prep your home before hosting a holiday party or overnight guests during this season: 

  • Be Aware of Anything Other Than Chestnuts Burning on an Open Fire – During this time of year, homes are adorned with holiday lights, candles and trees. Fireplaces are burning and kitchens are busy with holiday meal prep. Take time to inspect your furnace and chimney. If you decorate a Christmas tree with strands of lights, make sure the wiring is not damaged or frayed. It is important to be aware of all the additional fire hazards that these holiday traditions present in your home. Be sure to keep a fire extinguisher on hand and install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors throughout. 
  • Make Your Bathrooms Friendly and Bright – Be sure your guest bathroom is a safe place for older guests and young children who may be visiting your home. Consider placing a bath mat on the floor or non-slip decals inside your shower to help prevent slips or falls. This is also the time to repair that leaky faucet or clogged drain. Make sure your bathroom is ready for expected, and sometimes unexpected, guests!
  • Clean Your Vents, For Goodness Sake – If it has been a while since the last time you cleaned your furnace vents and air filters, do it today! It is recommended to change your air filters at least four times a year. If your vents are dirty, now is the time to clean them up and install new air filters before inviting a crowd into your home, allowing the air you breathe to be cleaner and healthier for all. 

For more information about how to prep your home for the holiday season, or any time of year, give Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing in Las Vegas a call to schedule a service appointment for furnace maintenance, air conditioning system tune-ups, plumbing checks, air filter changes, and so much more.

We recently visited the winning schools and students from our 2015 “Think Green & Clean” Contest. It was so great to meet everyone, and congratulate the winning students with their winning checks. 

Congratulations again to winners Ardian Agolli, Kaitlyne Ibay, Daniel Alvarez, Alex Tirado and seventh grade teacher Dr. Audra Duvall. 

Thanks to all who participated, and stay tuned for our 2016 contest!

Winter is upon us here in the Las Vegas area, which means it’s time to switch over from air conditioning to heat. With relatives descending upon our homes this holiday season, now is a great time to have your home’s heating system inspected to make sure it’s running efficiently and safely, since it’s been “hibernating” through the hot summer months. Plus, maintaining your home’s heating system regularly could potentially lower your energy bills, and increase the lifespan of your unit, while keeping your property and family safer through the holidays and in the long run. 

Here are a few steps from the experts at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing to improve your comfort inside the home this season: 

Clean your HVAC ducts.
Ducts are used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver and remove air from each room. It is important to clean your unit’s air and heating ducts regularly to maximize their efficiency and effectiveness. If your family is sensitive to dust and pet dander, this could be especially important for the times of year when you’re running your furnace more often.

Get your windows ready.
If winter gusts bring in a steely chill to your room, it may mean your windows need sealing. Without properly-sealed windows, you could be letting heated air out, forcing your unit to work overtime. Apply a weather-sealing strip, or chat with your local window professional for solutions.

Consider a programmable thermostat.
If you have an older thermostat, consider replacing with a programmable unit. What’s more, a Wi-Fi thermostat could be a great gift this holiday season! These high-tech tools can save on overall energy and heating costs, and can be programmed from anywhere during the busy holiday season. 

While some may think annual winter prep is unnecessary in the desert because extreme weather conditions don’t usually apply, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Your home is one of your biggest investments, and it’s important to make sure your home’s HVAC system is properly maintained to ensure its longevity.

Over the years, Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing has formed a close relationship with the USO Las Vegas. USO Las Vegas is dedicated to lifting the spirits of American troops and their families by providing a home away from home to all active duty military, National Guard, Reservists, and their families. The organization offers family strengthening and morale-boosting programs and services to the more than 75,000 active duty service members and their families stationed in southern Nevada. This past October, Yes! donated over $200 worth of candy to USO Las Vegas, to be given out at Halloween festivals for local military families. 

We’ve really enjoyed partnering with USO Las Vegas for philanthropic initiatives, including toy and candy drives, military family dinners and events, and more. With the holiday season approaching, we thought it was the perfect time to once again give back and support our local military families with the USO. 

Between November 20 and December 10, 2015, Yes! invites residents of the Las Vegas community to visit the Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing office, located at 6275 South Pioneer Way, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to drop off new, unwrapped toys for the upcoming holiday season. 

In addition, Yes! is encouraging its employees to donate at least one toy at the company’s annual holiday party. All donations will be delivered to the USO Las Vegas just in time for the holidays, to be given to children of military families.

Did you know that October is celebrated as Energy Conservation Month? At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we love offering tips on energy conservation during October and all year-long! We hope these tips empower Las Vegas homeowners to take action to make your home a hub of energy-efficient practices before the New Year. You may be surprised what “going green” can do for your budget, your home and even your family’s health!

Take a look at these simple steps for energy efficiency while keeping our planet in mind:

  • Schedule a Tune-Up:  Schedule a tune-up with your local HVAC professional, which includes a thorough inspection of your HVAC unit’s longevity, cleanliness, energy efficiency and performance. Regular maintenance of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system can help ensure that your HVAC unit is running as efficiently as possible. 
  • Keep your filters clean: Dirty filters restrict airflow and can cause your HVAC system to work overtime, increasing unnecessary energy usage.  By replacing your filters at least four times per year, you could save money on energy bills and help avoid potentially costly system repairs or replacement.
  • Turn up your thermostat: A simple turn of your thermostat up 5°–10° while you’re away from home (or down in the winter) can save on your monthly bills, reduce the load on your system, and help save energy. 
  • Turn off your lights and unplug items not in use: The Small Business Administration recommends turning off all lights and appliances when not is use. Leaving lights on and small appliances on or plugged in, such as a coffee machine or hair dryer, when not in use can result in higher utility bills and wasted energy. 
  • Seal and insulate your ducts: By sealing and insulating all ducts in your home to block any air leaks or tears, you can improve the overall efficiency of your unit. No matter how efficient your system is, if the ductwork is not sealed and insulated, it will increase your operating costs and decrease your comfort.  
  • Energy–Efficient Unit: Energy-efficient practices not only benefit our planet by conserving our natural resources, they also conserve your budget. When maintaining your home’s systems, be sure to choose a HVAC contractor who is knowledgeable about air conditioner efficiency options, including energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning units.

If you’re in the Las Vegas area, call your trusted heating, air conditioning and plumbing company at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing to help make your home more energy efficient, and potentially save your family money in the process!

With fall in full swing, it’s time to get into the fall spirit. Though it may seem like a long time until we can experience cooler weather here in Las Vegas, it’s time to start thinking about prepping your home for it. 

Prepping for cooler weather can ensure that your home is ready for seasons to come. In the Las Vegas Valley, the bitter chill of winter can happen almost overnight. It might seem premature now, but you may be surprised by what some preventative maintenance can do for your budget, and your system. 

See below for some expert tips to prep your home for a safe and comfortable fall season:

  • Detect for Carbon Monoxide: If you’re planning on firing up your fireplace this winter, get your home checked by a professional, and consider installing a carbon monoxide detector now. A detector can alert you to odorless carbon monoxide emitted from furnaces, fireplaces, stoves and other gas-fired appliances, such as space heaters.
  • Insulate & Weather Strip: Check your home’s window insulation to ensure heat is not leaking out. If your windows aren’t properly sealed, you’ll end up spending more, because the unit will need to work overtime for lost air. Gaps in caulk and weather-stripping can account for 10% of your heating bills, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
  • Adjust Your Blinds: On sunny days, take advantage of the sun to bring in heat. Adjust blinds so they are open and tilted toward the ceiling—but be sure to close the blinds at sundown.
  • Ceiling Fans: Set your ceiling fan in the clockwise position, on low.  The fan can help circulate warm air all around the room.

Over the past three years, Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing has partnered with the Clark County School District for our annual conservation contest. This year, we’re hosting the “Think Green & Clean” Contest

We are encouraging students from the Clark County Unified School District, which includes 357 schools and over 315,000 students across the Las Vegas Valley, to enter their best ideas on how to conserve this time of year, reducing the load on the energy grid, and conserving water in acknowledging Nevada’s worsening drought. 

Students are invited to share the type of impact their ideas could have on the community and economy. 

The six winning students will be awarded cash prizes! The first place high school and middle school winners will be awarded $200 and the second place winners will be awarded a $100 cash prize. The kindergarten through grade five winners will be awarded a $150 first place cash prize and a $100 second place cash prize. In addition, Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing will donate $500 to the school with the most student entries. 

Our team at Yes! values the opportunity to get involved in our community, and we’re excited to partner again with the Clark County School District for the Think Green & Clean contest. Water conservation, as well as energy conservation, is of huge importance right now for the Las Vegas community. Through our Think Green & Clean contest, we hope to encourage even more students to think about implementing conservation practices into everyday life, and encouraging them to consider the impact they can make on the environment for our community as a whole.

Eligible participants, students currently enrolled in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade in the Clark County School District, are invited to submit ideas on how to conserve water, energy or both in their local Las Vegas Valley community. Entries are due between 12 a.m. PT on Sept. 21, 2015, and 5 p.m. PT on Oct. 16, 2015. 

To enter, students must submit a conservation idea in the form of a written essay, drawing or model. All entries must include a thorough explanation, the potential impact of the idea on the economy and/or community, and how the idea can be implemented throughout their community. Projects must be submitted to the participant’s teacher by email to: YesThinkClean@boltpr.com, or via mail at 501 Elm St., Suite 450, Dallas, TX 75202, no later than 5 p.m. PT on Oct. 16, 2015.

Here at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing, we always recommend preventative maintenance to our customers. When it comes to your heating and air conditioning system, and even your plumbing, maintenance is extremely important to keep these systems running efficiently and your home comfortable throughout the year. 

Recently, local Las Vegas “mommy blogger” Hula Hooping Mom shared her experience with the Yes! Home Service Maintenance plan. At $169, this plan is a great way to make sure your system stays up-to-date and worry-free throughout the summer heat, fall cool and even the winter chill. 

Blogger Tara says of her HVAC visit, “When your air conditioning unit isn’t working at its full capacity, it can cause the unit to break down or work even harder to cool down your home, resulting in a higher bill.  I can't stress how important it is to make sure you get yearly maintenance for your units. Think about it, it's much cheaper to pay for a service plan than to keep paying a pricey bill month after month!” We agree, Tara! 

Our Maintenance Plan Includes:

  • One seasonal air conditioning tune-up and one seasonal furnace tune-up
  • One year warranty on repair parts and labor
  • One annual Whole House Plumbing Inspection
  • Priority emergency service within 24 hours of your call
  • Preferred pricing on service, repair, installation and after-hours charges
  • Flexible Payment Plans - pay annually or monthly by credit/debit card
  • National flexibility - move anywhere within our service areas and continue to utilize our home comfort services for your new home

If you’re interested in learning more about our maintenance plan, or to speak with a representative, give us a call at 702-545-6260 or visit online at http://www.yesairconditioningandheating.com.
