Welcome to the very first blog of 1st Action Plumbing, Heating & Air! While this might be our first time blogging, we don’t want you to get the impression that we are new to the plumbing or HVAC industry by any stretch of the imagination.
You see, our Loveland plumbing and HVAC company is made of up three dedicated professionals:
- Brandyn Wahlert – President
- Brady Bullock – Vice President, Plumbing Service, and Sales Manager
- Zach Rasch – HVAC Service and Sales Manager
We are able to boast over 27 years of HVAC experience and 14 years of combined plumbing experience to boot! We also earned the following titles for our high-quality of HVAC and plumbing services performed:
- Top-Rated Professional on Home Advisor
- Elite Service Professional on Home Advisor
- Seal of Approval on Home Advisor
Suffice it to say, we are experienced, knowledgeable, and passionate about what we do. And what is it that we do? That’s exactly what we’ll be describing for the rest of today’s inaugural blog, so buckle up!
If you’ve found yourself needing to take faster and faster showers to make sure the hot water doesn’t run out, you’ve got a problem. If your family (or housemates) needs to stagger their showering schedules so you don’t run out of hot water, you’ve got a problem. If your hot water heater has started to make some…curious noises lately, you’ve probably got a problem.
But guess what? It’s a fixable problem.
Hot water heaters typically last around a decade. Sometimes it’s for longer, sometimes it’s a few years fewer than a round 10, but the bottom line is that all tank water heaters will need some TLC now and then.
The question then becomes, should you repair or replace? Crucially, the only way we can know for sure is to diagnose and troubleshoot in person (anyone who tells you differently is probably trying to make a quick buck).
Here’s a few other reasons to give us a call about your water heater:
- Rusty colored water
- Low hot water pressure
- Smelly hot water
- Scalding water
- Reheat lags
- Strange noises
- Not enough hot water/no hot water
Give our hot water heater repair team a call for honest, thorough evaluations and fair prices!
If it’s time for your hot water heater to retire, you do have alternatives aside from simply buying another tank. Tankless water heaters have become more popular lately — and for good reason! The main reasons are that they offer unlimited hot water, superior energy efficiency, and have a longer lifespan than a tank. At 1st Action Plumbing, Heating & Air, we install the best model — the Navien 240A — and customize it to your home or business’ needs. Keep in mind we are able to repair other models of tankless hot water heaters as well.
Another benefit of going the “on-demand” route is that on-demand hot water systems require less frequent maintenance and repair work as well. Tankless heaters do have their own set of issues to be aware of, however. So if you run into any of the following problems, be sure to give us a call for affordable tankless water heater repair service in Northern Colorado:
- Flame failure
- Ignition failure
- Mineral buildup
- Coldwater sandwich
- System overload
- Exhaust or air supply blockage
Assuming you’ve lived in the area for a while, it’s safe to say you don’t need to be told twice how important having a well-functioning HVAC system is the whole year-round. In the winter, you obviously need a trusty furnace to keep you and yours comfy when the cold air comes through. In the summer months, it’s just the opposite, and it’s pretty much impossible to stay comfortable with a set of house fans to cool you down.
If your HVAC system isn’t working well, or if it’s been a while since you’ve had your heating and cooling unit looked at, it’s worth giving us a call (before the cold season well and truly begins). Below you’ll find some of the Northern Colorado HVAC services we offer:
- Furnace Replacement
- Furnace Repair
- AC Replacement
- AC Repair
- HVAC Installations
- HVAC Maintenance
- Swamp Cooler Service
- Air Handler Maintenance
- Heat Pump Repairs
- Duct Cleaning – Installations and Repairs
- Whole House Fan Installations
We also offer regular HVAC maintenance plans. If you are wondering if such a maintenance plan is really necessary, all we can say is that it’s up to you! In our experience, there’s a few different reasons that it is worthwhile for a household:
- Changing your HVAC filters regularly will improve indoor air quality, which in turn will reduce allergens and help you feel better.
- HVAC maintenance reduces the likelihood that you’ll need expensive repairs.
- Maintenance ensures that a trained technician can check for any potential safety hazards to make sure your home and family are safe.
- Regular tune-ups have been shown to increase the lifespan of your system.
Seeing as how winter is almost upon us, we might as well take the opportunity to highlight our furnace repair service. Our home heating services are as thorough as they are affordable. Plus, they are quite important; you want to make sure your furnace if working properly before we get hit with consistently sub-zero temperatures.
If you need a pre-winter tuneup (or if your furnace is already not up to snuff), we can diagnose and resolve the issue. Here are a few of the furnace repair services we offer:
- Pilot light problems
- Dirty filters
- Continuously blowing blowers
- Malfunctioning thermostat
- Lack of heat
- Frequent cycling
- Excessive noise
While you might not be thinking too much about staying cool during this time of year, our Loveland AC services are cost-effective and reliable — just like all of our services here!
Because all air conditioners lose their effectiveness over time, it’s important to call in professionals who are able to determine the extent of the problem. It might just be something as simple as a faulty filter, but it might be a more extensive problem. We are able to identify any and all issues with your system, ensuring that you don’t overpay or under-repair. Here are a few common AC repair issues we troubleshoot:
- Frozen evaporator coils
- Fan issues
- Leaking ducts
- Low refrigerant
- Dirty evaporator coils
- Thermostat problems
