It’s time to schedule a Preventative Maintenance

Be Proactive To Ensure Comfort All Season Long Here in the desert, our HVAC equipment takes a beating throughout the hot months. There is only a short window after we get to shut off our A/C before needing our heat. One of the best things you can do to ensure that your unit recovers from the heat of the summer, is to have your unit(s) set up to have a Preventative Maintenance service. By being proactive, you can eliminate worry that your unit may fail when you really need it and avoid extra costs. Regular maintenance gives you peace of mind knowing that any potential problems are discovered before they become BIG problems. Here at JMAC Plumbing & Air, we recommend a minimum of two maintenance service calls a year, one before the heat of the summer and one after. When you schedule a Preventative Maintenance service you can expect the technician to give your unit(s) a thorough evaluation and any necessary adjustments. At JMAC we do a full 18-point Maintenance to get your system ready for the colder weather: 18 Point HEATING Inspection & Maintenance Inspect air filter(s) Inspect thermostat operation Inspect burner operation Inspect heat exchanger Inspect safety controls Inspect fan/limit controls Inspect flue pipe at furnace Inspect wiring Inspect belts and pulleys (if applicable) Inspect flame sensor Inspect blower compartment Lubricate all moving parts (if applicable) Check voltage at furnace Check amp draws Check belts and pulleys (if applicable) Tighten loose screws on panels Tighten wires and wire connections Check temperature rise There are many benefits of preventative maintenance, but none more important than ensuring your...

Ode to our plumbers

Plumbing is hard work and can get a little messy. Plumbers are unsung heroes; not often thought of until they are needed most. In a tribute to plumbers, let us highlight a few of the most famous plumbers (real and fictional): Mario Brothers. A fictional example, they are still the heroes of one of the most popular video game franchises there is. Ozzy Osbourne. Can you imagine being able to say that Ozzy Osbourne plunged your toilet? Someone somewhere can. He was once a plumber. Joe the Plumber. Joe Wurzelbacher introduced himself this way when handed a microphone during a tour stop for the 2008 elections.  Maybe our current presidential candidates can find a plumber to make famous! Thomas Crapper. You guessed it; this man is responsible for the term “crap” and the euphemism for the toilet: “the crapper”. He was a large supplier of toilets during World War I. Soldiers began calling them “crappers” and the term stuck. Sir Michael Caine. Yes. We are talking about the award-winning actor. After serving in the army in Korea, he started a career as a plumber. Only afterward did he pursue a career in acting. So, hats off to plumbers! To schedule your next service, call JMAC Plumbing and Air Conditioning—your Las Vegas Air Conditioning and Plumbing...

Benefits of Having an Air Conditioner

Living in Las Vegas, especially during the summer time, it is important that we do what we can to keep cool. If you have lived here long enough, you know that not having air in your home can make your life miserable. There are many benefits to having an air conditioner, especially in Las Vegas.   Air conditioners provide a comfortable environment while you are work or at home during all times of the year.   An air conditioner can have two functions: heating and cooling.   Anti-fungus filters are used in modern air conditioners which will help to catch dust and allergens in order to purify the air that you are breathing.   Air conditioners remove warm air from the home.   Doors and windows are able to stay closed when you have an air conditioner. This helps with the security of your home.   Air conditioning units can get expensive to run, but when you have them they really do make your life better. During the summer your home becomes like a sanctuary, where you spend the majority of your day. If you are going to be going outside, you try do it at night when the sun is not beating down on you. While nights can still be hot, they are a lot better than the middle of the day.   When it comes to keeping cool during the summer months, call JMAC Plumbing and Air Conditioning—your Las Vegas air conditioning...
