Domestic Air Conditioning

Home air conditioning (often referred to as AC) is designed to dehumidify and extract heat from living spaces and provide comfort in hot weather.

Air conditioning systems are fully digital with remote controls like television remotes used to control the temperature and fan speeds. Most domestic air conditioning systems combine wall mounted units in each room with a small compressor unit which is located outside. Copper pipes link the two units so that cold and warm air can flow between. The system is typically driven by a 240 volt electricity supply.

The advent of these internal wall mounted units called inverters has transformed the energy efficiency of air conditioning. They can control the capacity and fan speed of the system digitally by matching it precisely to the temperature required. This means that no additional or surplus heat is wasted.

Some air conditioning units on the continent and in holiday destinations give the systems a bad name, as they are often extremely noisy and ineffective. But this shouldn’t prevent you from considering an air-con system for your home. Modern systems are so quiet if sited in the right place that they will not disturb your home or the residential area that you live in.

As summer temperatures are expected to continue to increase during the next decade it seems likely that many households will seek to install some form of air conditioning. In the winter, air conditioning systems have the ability to be run in reverse, thereby also acting as a heat pump. This is an extremely efficient use of electricity in providing domestic heating as warm air will be blown out, instead of the need for the heating of water. As a general guideline, the cost to supply and install domestic air conditioning is around 2000.

Trio of dining options set for S.W. 16th Place

Featured are a pizzeria, sports bar and dessert lounge.

Jason Woodburn, Richard Boye and DeeAnn De Castris are excited about their new business venture.

Henderson residents looking for a new restaurant to try can now add three to their to-try list.

“The 16th Place Experience,” on 16th Place near Chiquita Boulevard, is an all-in-one dining experience that includes a pizzeria, sports bar and dessert lounge.

Each venue — Crust Pizzeria, Richee B’s Sports Restaurant and Nite Caps — has its own entrance and separate menu, but all are in the same building. While Crust Pizzeria has been open since June, Richee B’s opened in late August and Nite Caps doesn’t have a solid opening date due to construction.

The four partners who own “The 16th Place Experience,” Richard Boye, Charlie Boye, Jason Woodburn and DeeAnn De Castris, picked this location because they felt the building, formerly occupied by Bella Sera, an Italian restaurant and pizzeria, lent itself perfectly to their idea of a one-stop shop for dining and entertainment.

“We’re trying to create a destination location for Henderson residents,” Richard said. “Some place they can go park their car and not go to the same old restaurant every week; they can have a slice of pizza, they can come in here (Richee B’s) for some fun, and then go next door to Nite Caps and listen to great music in a fun, eclectic type of atmosphere.”

While Crust Pizzeria is mainly a pizza joint, Richard said Richee B’s aims to be more than just another sports bar, offering quality food while 33 televisions, including one for each booth, show whatever sports event the customer requests.

“We are going to be food first,” Richard said. “Our food is going to be restaurant quality food … but with a big sports atmosphere.”

Unlike the other two locations, Nite Caps is less of a restaurant but will have more of a club and martini bar feel.

Nite Caps is going to be kind of like a cigar bar without the smoke,” Woodburn said. “We’ll have some great music that’s going to be acoustic singer/songwriter, backed by a martini bar serving great coffee, desserts … real laid back with couches, love seats and pool tables.”

 Opening one restaurant is a trying task, and according to the “16th Place Experience” partners, opening three is three times as challenging.

“We haven’t opened the third one yet, but so far it’s been overwhelming,” Richard said. “And that’s why we didn’t mind having four partners in the project also — one person doing this would be daunting.”

Though getting the three businesses up and running is difficult, the “16th Place Experience” partners believe they are up to the task.

Richard and Woodburn, who met while tending bar at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in 1995, were partners in the iBar, a former restaurant in south Las Vegas. In addition to that experience, Woodburn owned City Tavern in downtown Las Vegas until he sold it in 2006, and De Castris managed restaurants in Chicago before moving to Henderson in 2004.

Richard and De Castris are Cape residents, and according to Richard, they are excited to bring a new business to the city.

“I’ve lived in Henderson since 1976,” Richard said. “…I’ve always wanted to do something here, and I could almost never get (Woodburn) across the bridge. Then when I showed him the building I think that changed.”

The partners are excited to be in the southwest Cape because they believe it is perfect for their business.

“We’re in the middle of a great ZIP code,” Richard said. “33914 is a really great area of Henderson. It’s a little bit older of a crowd, it’s not a bunch of kids. It’s very touristy, but the people that do stay here year-round are very loyal to the businesses; they try to support their local businesses, so we figured this was just a great, great spot.”

One Unique Heating Solution For Your Pool And Spa

Las Vegas Air Conditioning

heating solution for your pool and spaLiving in Nevada means enjoying the sunshine. If you have a swimming pool, your family probably spends a lot of time in it. Unfortunately, keeping a backyard pool or spa warm can get expensive. If you’re really watching your pennies, you could stop heating the water altogether. But this isn’t a very practical solution. A much better solution is a heat pump, which can keep your pool nice and warm while hardly putting a dent in your energy budget.

A heating solution for your pool and spa
A pool heat pump operates on the same principal that a heat pump for your home does: It draws warmth from the air and transfers it to the place where you need it — in this case, the pool. As it is being circulated, the water in your pool passes through the heat pump. The heat pump fan pulls in the outside air and moves it over the evaporator coil, which contains a refrigerant. The liquid refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air and becomes a gas. The warmed gas passes through the compressor, which boosts the heat of the gas. Then the hot gas passes through the condenser, and the heat is released into the water. The gas then returns to a liquid state, and the cycle begins again.

A heat pump is ideal for Nevada pools, as the air temperature should be above 45 degrees for optimal efficiency. With the average annual temperature in Nevada ranging from the 60s to the 80s, that’s no problem.

Installing and maintaining your pool heat pump
A properly installed and maintained heat pump, such as the ComfortSwim heat pump offered by Las Vegas Air Conditioning can give you many years of comfortable and affordable swimming pool or spa water. The ComfortSwim heat pump also offers quiet operation and uses an environmentally friendly refrigerant. It’s simple to install and easy to maintain.

But any swimming pool or spa heat pump has quite a few electrical and moving parts. It should be installed and serviced by a contractor who knows what he’s doing. At Las Vegas Air Conditioning, we have special expertise when it comes to these heaters. If you’re thinking about changing the way you heat your pool or spa, . We can provide you with a free analysis of your needs and help you find the solution that’s right for your pool or spa.

Our goal is to help educate our customers about energy and home comfort issues (specific to HVAC systems).  For more information about other HVAC topics, .

5 Ways To Control Summer Allergies

Las Vegas Air Conditioning

control summer allergies, Henderson, NevadaEfforts to control summer allergies begin at home. That’s because the inside of your own residence is where you’re most likely to get the most concentrated dose of airborne allergens. Some are outdoor microorganisms like mold spores and bacteria that infiltrate by the millions every time an exterior door is opened. Other allergens, such as dust, dust mites and pet dander, originate inside your home. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that your home may be 100 times more polluted with allergy-triggering airborne contaminants than the outdoors.

To effectively control summer allergies, remove outdoor allergens that find their way inside, and limit the sources of indoor allergens. Here are some ways to accomplish both:

  1. Dust is composed mostly of human skin flakes, fibers from clothing, carpeting and drapes and tiny dirt particles. Keep dust out of the air by removing it with regular vacuuming, mopping and dust-wiping.
  2. Kill dust mites by washing sheets, spreads and blankets once a week in water hotter than 130 degrees. Consider adding allergy-proof mattress covers to control dust mites, too.
  3. Change your air conditioning filter regularly. A fresh filter cleanses the air of particulates. A dirty filter not only underperforms, but also becomes a breeding ground for living microorganisms that are trapped inside the filter media.
  4. Consider installing a whole-house dehumidifier to treat all the air in your home. Maintaining interior humidity below 50 percent prevents the multiplication of microorganisms such as mold spores and dust mites. It also makes your air conditioner work more effectively.
  5. Ask your HVAC contractor about a whole-house air purification system. Unlike portable room air cleaners, these units mount directly inside your ducts or air handler and remove over 99 percent of airborne particulates. Because your home’s entire air volume circulates through the ducts many times daily, a whole-house solution ensures total air filtration.

Since 2002, Las Vegas Air Conditioning has provided southwest Nevada residents with cool comfort and healthy indoor air quality. Call us for more ways to control summer allergies with advanced air-purification technology.

Air Conditioner Leaking Again? Get Expert Help

Las Vegas Air Conditioning

air conditioner leaking, Henderson, NevadaIs your air conditioner leaking again? Clogged drainage lines are indicators of a serious underlying issue. It’s smart to call your HVAC professional as soon as you even suspect a leakage issue. This can ensure that your system works properly, and you’ll avoid any water damage.

Cause and effect
An air conditioner has two drain lines. The main drain line runs outside your home via gravity or a condensate pump. But your unit also has an emergency drain, in case the main line develops a clog. This drain might run outside your home or have a shut-off switch attached to it. Although the emergency drain is designed to serve as a backup, it too can become clogged. And if one line — or worse, two lines — become clogged, you can have a water problem. These are some of the issues that contribute to clogged condensate lines:

  • Mineral deposits and algae growth inside the lines
  • Insect and rodent nests that block the lines
  • Poor installation and even home settling and shifting, which can compromise the drainage slope
  • A/C strain caused by inadequate refrigerant charge or airflow blockage

Air conditioners produce substantial quantities of water via condensation. When both drain lines become clogged, the condensation quickly fills the drain pan and water overflows in your home. This typically occurs wherever the evaporator is located. Because it’s often an area that you don’t use much, the water problem can go unnoticed until you have serious damage.

Professional solutions
Regularly scheduled maintenance is the only sure preventive measure. These are some of the checks and measures to expect of your maintenance technician:

  • Debris should be removed from condensate lines.
  • The air filter should be changed, and the evaporator and condenser coils, along with the outdoor blower assembly, should be cleaned.
  • Electrical connections should be checked and cleaned. Poor connections contribute to A/C wear and tear.
  • The system should be checked for refrigerant leaks, and the refrigerant should be recharged. Precise refrigerant charge is required for optimal efficiency and system performance. An incorrect refrigerant charge burdens the system and causes ice accumulation on the evaporator.

If you suspect any moisture issues with your air conditioner, contact Las Vegas Air Conditioning. We have proudly served homeowners in Green Valley, Las Vegas, Las Vegas and Henderson since 2002.

Drive Heat Pump Performance Through The End Of Summer

Las Vegas Air Conditioning

drive heat pump performance, Las Vegas, NevadaNeedless to say, optimal heat pump performance is essential for home comfort and energy savings in Nevada. To drive heat pump performance through the end of summer, pay close attention to airflow, refrigerant charge and efficient duct design.

A heat pump system provides top-notch energy efficiency by transferring heat from one area to another. During the cooling months, heat is transferred from inside your home to the outside. The process reverses in the winter. Heat is extracted from the outdoor air and transferred to your home. Unhindered airflow and correct refrigerant charge are required for optimal performance. A leak-free duct system, meanwhile, ensures efficient airflow.

  • Airflow: The typical heat pump has a blower and a fan that move air over the evaporator and condenser coils. These components need to be free of debris and blockages for free airflow which, in turn, permits the refrigerant to extract and release heat at optimal efficiency. This keeps your home comfortable and your energy bills low.
  • Refrigerant: The amount of refrigerant in your system must exactly match your system’s specifications. If your refrigerant level is off, your system’s efficiency is reduced. This burdens the system and my cause the evaporator to accumulate ice. Make sure your HVAC technician checks for any refrigerant leaks during your annual tune-up. He should also correct the charge if necessary.
  • Duct design: Though not a component of the heat pump, ductwork is crucial for efficient cooling. A leaky duct system wastes energy and makes your heat pump work harder, decreasing efficiency and even causing it to break down sooner than it should. Bad ductwork could cause you to lose 20 percent or more of your Las Vegas air Conditioning.

Regular heat pump maintenance, and a duct inspection by a heating and cooling professional can yield substantial long-term energy savings. If you would like to speak to an air conditioning professional, contact Las Vegas Air Conditioning. We serve all of Nevada and can help you drive your heat pump performance through the end of the cooling season.

Upgrading Your Home Air Conditioner? Use Cooling Terminology Like The Pros

Las Vegas Air Conditioning

upgrading your air conditioner,  NevadaIt can feel like you need to learn another language when you’re upgrading your air conditioner, with all of the industry-specific terms used by HVAC professionals. But with this handy glossary, you can understand the terms and make informed choices when you’re upgrading your air conditioner.

  • British Thermal Units: The basic unit of heat transfer. This term is used in the industry because air conditioners transfer heat out of your home. What inches are to distance, BTUs are to cooling.
  • Ton: When used in reference to upgrading your air conditioner, a ton has nothing to do with weight. Rather, an air conditioning ton represents 12,000 BTUs of heat transfer per hour.
  • Cooling load: The number of BTUs needed to cool your home on a hot day. You must calculate your home’s cooling load to determine how many tons of air conditioning you need.
  • Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio: The average number of BTUs provided for each watt of electricity. A higher SEER number indicates higher A/C efficiency.
  • Delta T: The change in temperature as air passes through the evaporator coil of an A/C.
  • Air handler: The indoor half of a central air conditioning system and the part that actually cools your house. An air handler can be single-speed or variable-speed, with the latter being more energy efficient.
  • Condensing unit: The outdoor half of an A/C system. It transfers the indoor heat to the outdoor air.
  • Compressor: The pump that circulates refrigerant through the system. Some compressors are two-stage, which means they operate more efficiently.
  • Coils: There are two coils in an A/C system: the outdoor condensing coil and the indoor evaporator coil. The evaporator coil absorbs heat from the air, and the condensing coil releases that heat to the outdoors.
  • Refrigerant: The substance that flows through the coils, alternately evaporating (to absorb heat) and condensing (to release heat).

A/C Operating Tips For Nevada Homeowners

Las Vegas Air Conditioning

a/c operating tips include clean filters,  NevadaHigh temperatures are common in Nevada throughout the year. But given the searing heat and stifling humidity of summertime, many homeowners run their air conditioners practically all the time. This can lead to very high utility bills. You may wonder what you can do to take charge of your energy costs without sacrificing your comfort. And it is possible. By following a few simple A/C operating tips, you can save money and stay comfortable, even in Nevada.

Nevada A/C Operating Tips

First, you need to keep your air conditioner in top shape. You should have your contractor tune up your A/C at the start of the cooling season. You can do your part by:

  • Changing the filter regularly. Put a new one in as soon as the old one looks dirty.
  • Ensuring that the outdoor unit is free of grass, dirt, dead leaves and other debris that can hinder airflow.
  • Removing any clogs or obstructions in the base drain pan. Also take steps to prevent mold growth in the drain pan.
  • Keeping ducts, vents and registers free of obstructions
  • Sealing and insulating all exposed ducts and finding and fixing exterior air leaks
  • Boosting the insulation in your attic, which will keep the heat from radiating through your ceiling

Reduce home heat gain

You can take additional measures to keep the air in your home cool and prevent heat gain. This will serve to ease your air conditioner’s workload.

  • Use thick drapes or blinds over large windows to keep out the heat from the sun. Consider drapes with a white or reflective backing. Alternatively, consider interior shutters, such as plantation shutters.
  • Do not turn on the oven on very hot days; instead, use your microwave.
  • Keep your use of incandescent lights minimal. They produce heat. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs instead.
