Indoor Air Quality in Colorado Springs and Surrounding Area
Electronic Air Cleaners/Air FiltersThe Electronic Air Cleaner is installed between the return air ductwork and the furnace. The air cleaner replaces the traditional furnace filter. Power is supplied to the air cleaner by tapping into the power supply to the furnace. In most cases, the furnace will already have an outlet the air cleaner can be plugged in to. Some minor ductwork changes may be required to install the air cleaner. An electronic air cleaner works by charging particles in the air and then collecting them using an opposite charge, like a magnet. Because small particles are charged, the electronic air cleaner is much more efficient than traditional filters. Very small particles that would normally pass through a filter, such as smoke and dust, are captured along with larger particles.

Water Heater Replacement in Colorado Springs and Fountain COThere are many responsibilities that come with owning a home, whether you reside in it or use the property as a source of income. Among those things is ensuring that the building has hot water. This helps to maintain the value of the property, as well as the comfort of anyone who is living there. As a result, water heater replacement will come up on your to-do list if you own the property long enough.
Ready for an upgrade? Consider a tankless water heater!We not only replace standard hot water heaters, but we also replace tankless water heaters as well. If your tankless hot water heater is broken beyond repair (which we can often do), we will suggest replacing one. If you're interested in switching from a standard gas or electric hot water heater to a tankless system, be sure to ask our technician if it's a good fit for your Colorado Springs home. Before you start shopping around for a new hot water heater, you need to be sure that it needs replacement. This might be because it is broken and too expensive to fix. However, that is not the only scenario where choosing a new water heater is a good idea. Outdated models can use up a lot of electricity or gas. You can find ones with much better energy usage ratings than a decade ago. Replacing the water heater can save you money each month on your power bill, meaning that it will begin paying for itself immediately. While you can opt for one that uses the current power source, you might also be considering water heater replacement with a solar-supported system. Not only does this choice reduce your power consumption, but it is also better for the environment! Replacing your current water heating system with a tankless model is yet another way that you can save power each month. These models are quite efficient because they only operate when water is being used.
Replacing water heater in Colorado Springs and surrounding areasModels that store the hot water in a tank operate on and off around the clock. Whenever the temperature drops below a certain level, the heating element kicks back on until it meets the designated temperature. Turning on the water long enough to wash your hands will flood cold water into the tank, requiring the unit to turn back on. During the wintertime, the frigid water takes even longer to heat up. However, a tank-less heating system doesn’t have that problem. While they are a bit more, these are the best option for saving some cash in the long-term. It can also provide you with a good selling point when you are ready to put the place on the market. As you can see, there are several scenarios where purchasing a new water heater is a good idea. No matter what the cause, you have plenty of options for the new unit. There are several factors that you should consider when choosing your new heater, including how much usage you expect out of it. For instance, a five-bedroom home filled with kids will have a significantly different profile than a small one-bedroom cottage with a single resident. Find a qualified and reputable heating company in Colorado Springs that can help you determine the best system for your home and budget. Remember that a new hot water heater is an important investment for your home. Take the time to weigh your options carefully before you decide which route to go with this essential home appliance.

The Reme Guardian Air system…the best water purifier availableIf your hot showers are becoming decidedly shorter and you have noticed a rusty color to the water, it is probably time to consider replacing that old water heater. Given that water heaters typically last about 10 years, replacement water heater installation is one of the most sought after home improvements.
Signs of Imminent FailureWhen rusty water starts coming out every time you turn on the hot water spigot, it can indicate that the tank of your hot water heater is rusting and could soon spring a leak. Other typical signs of wear and age are that the heater is making a rumbling noise or that there is water accumulating around its base, indicating a leak and the hot water is not lasting as long. The rumbling sound can come from the buildup of sediment at the tank’s bottom. Constantly reheating the sediment will cause it to harden and bang around in the tank as the water flows. This also forces the heater to work harder to heat the water, making it less efficient and possibly damaging the unit.

Water Heater Maintenance Colorado Springs and Fountain COIf you want your water heater to last, you need to know how to complete water heater maintenance. There are a number of steps that you can take to ensure that your water heater is performing at its best. If you are unsure about where to start with water heater maintenance, there are a number of tips that you can use to help you.
Test The TPR ValveThe TPR valve, or the temperature-pressure release valve, will generally be located on the top or side of the water heater tank. This valve is the one which will open when the pressure in the water tank gets too high. It is important that this valve works correctly as it will ensure that there is enough pressure and that the pressure does not build up too much. To test the valve, you will need to turn off the power and the cold water supply valve. You need to place a bucket under the pipe which is connected to the valve and then lift the valve tab to let some water out. You should then let go of the tab and take note of whether or not more water flows out. If the water keeps running out, you need to drain the tank halfway and then install a new valve.
Check The Anode RodThe anode rod is an important part of your water heater system and you need to check it. To get to the rod, you will need to attach a hose to the drain cock of the tank and let out a bit of water. You can then be able to unscrew the rod with a socket. When you have the rod out, you should look at the amount of calcium which coats it. If the road has is coated with calcium or appears to be less than half an inch thick, you need t replace it. If the rod is mostly clear of calcium and has not shrunk too much, you can put it back into the heater.
Drain The Tank And Wash Out SedimentAfter you have looked at the anode rod, you should consider draining the tank and washing out the sediment. You might be surprised at the difference that this can make to the whole system. Once all of the water is out of the tank, you will need to open the cold water supply for a brief moment. This cold water will stir up the sediment at the bottom of the tank. You will then be able to drain this sediment-filled water. You need to repeat this process until the water that is drained is clear. You should then close the drain cock, refill your tank and then turn the power back on. There are a number of maintenance tasks that you can complete to ensure that your water heater is working correctly. Checking the internal components is important, but you need to ensure that you are safe when doing this. It is vital that you always turn off the power and close the water supply before you start.
