An Important Message To Our Customers

March 24th, 2020

Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We know that these are uncertain times, and we want to let you know that we’re committed to keeping you cool and comfortable as the heat arrives. We are still fully operating, and have implemented enhanced safety protocols to ensure the health and safety of our customers and employees:

  • If a customer has a “packaged” heating & cooling system (80% of our customers do) or a “split” system with equipment in the garage we do not need to come inside the home or even have contact with the customer. Unsure if this applies to you? Give us a call: 928-683-1671.
  • Our employees will be wearing gloves and wiping down anything they touch with antiseptic wipes.
  • Our employees have been advised to keep distance. We’ll still greet you with a friendly smile, but for now we’ll be avoiding handshakes.
  • Unfortunately, we will not be changing customer filters at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience and will let you know as soon as this service will resume.
  • If any of our employees show any signs of being sick, they have been notified, they are to stay home.
  • If you or anyone in your household shows symptoms of the virus, please give us a call to determine if you should reschedule: 928-683-1671.

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

How Video Pipe Inspections Help You

June 28th, 2021

Have you ever wondered what exactly was going on inside your home’s pipes? This is the way to find out.

Video pipe inspection is the process of putting a tiny camera through the plumbing system, storm drains, or sewer lines in your home to get a video feed. A control panel allows an expert professional to maneuver the camera that is fixed onto a wheelbase and examine the pipes.

The plumbing professional will drive the camera into the plumbing system and get a live video feed that shows them the interior of the pipe. This allows them to identify areas where pipes are clogged, broken, or damaged.

Scheduling these services reduces the time and resources it takes to correctly locate plumbing problems. It also eliminates the costly and time-consuming process of digging up the pipes to determine where other issues are originating.

We will tell you about how video pipe inspections help you so that you can understand why it might be the best decision to hire professionals to perform this inspection in the plumbing lines. If you are looking to hire expert services for plumbing in Lake Havasu City, AZ, you can always contact us.

Don’t Forget These Key Things When Dealing With Low Refrigerant

May 17th, 2021

Refrigerant is vital to the operation of your air conditioner. After all, without this substance, your AC wouldn’t be anything more than a whole-house fan. And, while we have nothing against fans, they just aren’t capable of cooling things the same way that AC systems are (they don’t necessarily “cool” anything actually but that is a discussion for later).

When you find yourself dealing with low refrigerant then, it is an obvious problem. With no refrigerant in your AC, or even a low amount of it, the cooling process will be hindered. If you think your system has low refrigerant, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for AC repair in Bullhead City, AZ.
