Decreased Airflow: What It Means for Your Cooling System

June 19th, 2017

decreased-airflow-cooling-systemAir conditioning systems are that one appliance in every home that truly gets put to the test—especially during the sweltering summers we experience in our area. Temperatures are already higher than in most other parts of the country, and will likely remain so for a good portion of autumn. Since we rely on these systems so much for our comfort, it’s important to schedule air conditioning repairs in Los Alamos, NM as soon as we discover a problem.

Among the most common operational problems our professionals get called out for is reduced airflow.

This may not seem like a huge deal as long as you’re still able to remain comfortable, but it puts tremendous stress on your air conditioner. Plus, ignoring the issue means that whatever is causing the decreased airflow will only worsen. Continue Reading

This Method Is the Superior Drain Cleaning Solution

May 22nd, 2017

superior-drain-cleaning-methodIf you’ve owned a home for any number of years, chances are you’ve come across this scenario at least once: you come home from work, you’re ready to cook dinner, and you start prepping by washing your vegetables, only to discover water backing up into your kitchen sink due to a dreaded drain clog!

Another temptation that homeowners have in a situation such as this is using store-bought liquid drain cleaners. Unfortunately, these chemical cleaners are corrosive and can do more harm than good to your plumbing system. What you need instead is professional hydro jetting services in Albuquerque, NM.
