With temperatures escalating into the triple digits, you may feel that certain parts of your house feel “hotter” or “cooler” than others, and ask yourself, why? To fully understand why some parts of most homes are either too hot or too cold, you first need to understand what heat load is. Heat load is how much heating or cooling is needed to appropriately heat or cool a particular room. Everything from square footage, ceiling height, how many windows are in a particular room and what side of the home they are located on, can all play a factor.
Certain areas of homes have a lot more heat load than others. Here’s a few examples:
To help reduce the amount of heat loading in your home and to help keep your HVAC bill low, keep all doors and windows closed, with shades drawn during the day – especially those east and west facing windows. Installing a programmable or smart thermostat can save money by adjusting the temperature setting when you leave home.
To help lower heat loading in your home, get your system checked by a professional at least once a year. Contact a Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating professional by giving us a call at (702) 545-6260 or visit us at http://www.yesairconditioningandheating.com/air-conditioning/.

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.
On those hot Las Vegas days, it can be hard to believe that there was once a time when air conditioning was simply an idea and not a reality. When temperatures reached triple digits, the most effective option was just to fan yourself. At Yes! Air Conditioning & Heating, we try our best to know everything we can about HVAC systems, including a little bit of history.
Your air conditioning system has come a long way throughout the years!
3rd Century. Attempts at controlling indoor temperatures begin in ancient Rome as wealthy citizens took advantage of an aqueduct system to run cool water through the walls of their home.
1902. After the development of alternating current motors and the invention of oscillating fans by Nikola Tesla, a 25-year-old engineer from New York named Willis Carrier invented what is considered to be the first modern air conditioning system. The system was not made for human comfort, but rather to control the humidity of a printing plant that he worked in. This was all made possible by the harnessing of electricity.
1922. Carrier follows up his invention with a centrifugal chiller, which reduced the unit's size. It was introduced to the public in the Rivoli Theater in Times Square, which led to a significant rise in movie attendance due to thousands piling into air-conditioned movie theaters on hot summer days.
1965. Residential air conditioning systems start to grow, with 10 percent of the U.S. population being documented to have one in their own home.
Today. Over 87 percent of U.S. homes are equipped with modern and efficient air conditioning systems.
Air conditioning has come a long way in the past century, and so has Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing. Yes! has provided expert service and advice in the Las Vegas community for all of your air conditioning and plumbing needs.

Here in Las Vegas, where typical summer temperatures reach one hundred and above, we are always looking for ways to stay cool. Your local air conditioning experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing would like to introduce you to our radiant barrier product. If you were unsure of how a radiant barrier could benefit you and your home, allow us to help you understand the importance of having radiant barriers in your home.
Radiant barrier is a product that is applied to the underside of the roof in the attic of your home, and helps to reduce heat gain in the summer and keep the heat in for the winter, thus resulting in lower heating and cooling costs. The radiant barrier product is f a highly reflective material which reflects the radiant heat from the sun rather than absorbing it and causing your home to overheat during the summer, and keeps the heat in during the winter.
When the sun's rays heat up a home's roof, its radiant energy causes the roof to absorb this heat. This heat then travels through the roofing materials to the inside of the attic of your home. The air ducts within your attic then heat up other air ducts throughout the house and attic floor, causing the air conditioning within your home to be much less effective. Radiant barrier helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter and helps your air conditioner and furnace from working overtime.
If you are interested in the benefits of radiant barrier in your home and would like to make an appointment, or if you have any questions about cooling your home in Las Vegas, call a local HVAC professional at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing` or visit YesAirConditioningandHeating.com.

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.
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
