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...

It’s Spring Cleaning Time!

Spring is the season of fresh starts! Some parts of the country are still looking for signs that Spring is actually coming, as old Punxsutawney Phil predicted. Here in the desert we have been seeing the blooms on trees and plants for quite awhile already and if you are like most, the seasonal allergies have confirmed it for you. Spring is a great time to be sure that you not only change out your air filters, but also do a little extra cleaning of the vents. You can vacuum the vent openings to help rid the air of extra dust and debris. Clean vents and filters allow cleaner air to flow into your rooms once it’s time to start up the air conditioner. Spring is also a great time to schedule a preventative maintenance on your air conditioning units. After the long winter months of using your central heating, the coils and area around your units get dirty and need to be cleaned as well. Regular maintenance ensures that your units will be running optimally during the long summer months, and lessens the chance of any unit breakdowns. Breakdowns can displace you and your family here in the desert, and can be very expensive. Prevention is key to ensuring your family’s comfort all summer long! If your unit is close to 20 years old or older, you may want to talk to one of our pros about the benefits of a new, more energy-efficient unit. In the long run replacing an old unit before it completely breaks down can save you money and inconvenience. Spring is the best time...

Heatstroke

Dealing with extreme temperatures can be very difficult and dangerous. It is important that you take extra caution in making sure that you are staying healthy. When temperatures get out of control, we are more likely to get sick.   In Las Vegas we do not really have to worry about cold temperatures, but we do need to be careful during the summer time when temperatures get really hot. As you can see from the National Health Statistics Reports, http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr076.pdf, you can see that during 2006-2010 there were nearly 2,000 weather related deaths, 31% of which were deaths caused by heat stroke.   When you see statistics like these, you need to worry. If you know that you are going to be spending time outside, it is important that you stay hydrated. If you start to feel like you are over-heating, then you need to get somewhere cool so that you can cool your body down. Once your body hits a certain temperature then the damage can be very severe, in some cases resulting in death.   When it comes to heatstroke, it is important that you are taking care of yourself.
