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. That is, the air coming out of the vents in your home isn’t as powerful as it once was, or as powerful as you think it should be. 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

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.
