Arvada Heating and Cooling

Arvada’s temperatures vary wildly over the year, from 24°F to 88°F on average. To ensure you’re comfortable year-round, keep your HVAC system well-maintained. You’ll reduce the chance of unexpected breakdowns by hiring a reliable HVAC company to conduct annual maintenance. We understand it’s tempting to just set the thermostat and delay routine upkeep, but it isn’t worth the risks:

  • Fires triggered by foreign objects lodged in your ductwork, like plastic, as well as defective electrical wiring.
  • Higher than average energy bills. According to the Energy Information Administration, natural gas heating bills increased by 30% from 2021 to 2022. With proper maintenance, you can rest easy knowing that your setup runs as cost-effectively as possible.
  • Broken furnace components, such as a snapped fan belt, causing the blower motor to overheat. Over time, this could lead to melting cases or a cracked heat exchanger.
  • Losing an average of $300 per year to drafts and leaks, according to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy. Outdated equipment is another contributing factor.
  • Spending extra money unnecessarily by running high-wattage appliances, like a space heater, to counteract cold spots in your home caused by poor airflow.
  • Health issues caused by mold growth, dampness, or allergens.

Arvada Heating and Cooling Services

From installing heat pumps at home to troubleshooting ductwork problems in a commercial property, our team’s experience and skill set ensures we can handle a wide range of HVAC projects.

Read below for an overview of the HVAC services we offer to Arvada's homes and businesses:

Home Heating in Arvada

Avoid stressful mid-winter HVAC breakdowns with regular servicing and maintenance. Neglecting your setup isn’t recommended, as you risk costly emergency call-outs caused by serious faults and there’s no guarantee that a heating and cooling company will be available at short notice.

Fortunately, we’re available to help 24/7/365. Whether it’s an emergency furnace installation, air filter replacement, or water heater repair in Arvada, no job is too big or small for us. We also install and repair modern heating appliances such as solar-assisted heat pumps and wi-fi thermostats.

If you think your home heating system is outdated or running so poorly that it’s time to replace it entirely, take our HVAC repair or replace quiz before deciding—it’ll indicate whether a full replacement is necessary. New setups, including ductwork, cost over $5,000, so our quiz might save you a considerable amount of money. You can also contact us if you have questions.

Whatever the age or condition of your heating appliance, there are still ways to improve its energy efficiency and maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Here’s how:

  • Displace warm air trapped at ceiling height by reversing the direction of your ceiling fan, which forces it back down to floor level.
  • Reduce heat loss after sunset by closing your curtains. To improve heat retention even further, use thermal curtains. You can retrofit them to regular curtains too, and once fitted they’ll act as a noise-reducer by absorbing sound waves.
  • On sunny days, close north-facing curtains and open south-facing ones to allow solar heat to penetrate indoors.
  • Stop drafts by filling any cracks and gaps with caulk and insulation. Adding weather stripping to door frames and windows helps, too.
  • Stop chimney drafts by blocking the shaft with a chimney balloon. You can also fashion your own blocker by stuffing an old pillow into a waterproof bin bag, but don’t forget to remove it before lighting your fireplace!
  • Lay rugs or carpet, including on top of existing ones, to limit indoor heat loss. Heated or insulated rug pads are another option.
  • Clean your air filters at least every season to prevent short cycling. Short cycling is when your heating setup gets stuck in an overheat-shutdown-restart loop, which decreases your HVAC’s energy efficiency and causes excessive wear and tear on parts.
  • Open kitchen and shower doors when in use to circulate warm air indoors.
  • Set your thermostat heating-cooling schedule so it’s off when you’re out at work. Some smart thermostats also allow you to operate your setup manually using your smartphone, giving you the option to turn it off if you’re coming home later than expected.

Air Conditioning in Arvada

Arvada homes typically use one of six types of home cooling systems:

  • Wall-mounted air conditioners
  • Window-mounted air conditioners
  • Floor-mounted air conditioners
  • Ductless mini-splits
  • Central air conditioners
  • Evaporative cooling systems

We offer air conditioning installation in Arvada, as well as maintenance and repair services. We’re an authorized Carrier dealer, which is one of the most widely installed AC brands in the country. However, our technicians are trained to work with all models and makes of home cooling systems.

We maintain and install all four types of heat pumps: geothermal, water source, air-to-air, and hybrid. Despite their name, heat pumps are highly effective at cooling and reduce your energy bills considerably. If you’re unfamiliar with this technology, read our heat pump FAQs.

Home Air Quality in Arvada

A house or workplace with poor indoor air quality directly affects your health and well-being. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the safe range for indoor relative humidity (RH) is 30 to 50%. Below 30% RH is considered dry air, and its health effects include:

  • Aggravation of pre-existing respiratory conditions, such as asthma or bronchitis, as well as skin conditions like eczema
  • Sinusitis
  • Nosebleeds
  • Dry skin and throat

If the air has RH above 60%, which is classified as humid air, there are negative health effects, too:

  • Risk of contamination from ‘off-gassing.’ This is when moisture reacts with engineered wood flooring chemicals, such as formaldehyde, and releases vapor. Usually, the effects of off-gassing are minimal and result in skin, throat, and eye irritation.
  • Worsening of allergies caused by dust mite growth.
  • Increased risk of viral, fungal, and bacterial infection. For example, aspergillosis is caused by exposure to Aspergillus fumigatus mold and causes fevers, coughing, and chest pains in some people.

Poor indoor RH, be it high or low, also affects your home’s interiors, such as:

  • Chipped plaster
  • Flaking or bubbling paint/wallpaper
  • Wood rot

With regular HVAC maintenance, you can improve indoor air quality and eliminate any harmful health impacts. Using a humidifier/dehumidifier unit is another way to control RH levels. Our post, How to Fix Dry Air in your Home, outlines other methods.

Another indoor air quality issue is the risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Compared to RH, it’s far more serious as it causes several hundred deaths and 50,000 emergency department visits every year. One-third of CO poisoning deaths occur from December to February, as people close ventilation sources like doors and windows to keep warmth in. Keep yourself safe by reading our signs and symptoms of CO poisoning.

Beyond RH and CO, other factors affecting your home’s air quality include:

  • Asbestos
  • Radon
  • Combustive elements, such as tobacco smoke and burned wood particles
  • Mold, allergens, and bacteria
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

If you’re concerned about CO, RH, or the contaminants mentioned above, we conduct whole-home tests for these and install CO detectors and humidifier/dehumidifier units. Plus, we offer free advice on indoor air quality.

Ductless Heating and Cooling Arvada

Is there a part of your home that doesn't have heating or cooling, like the garage or attic? If you’re looking to make under-used home spaces more liveable, ductless HVAC is ideal. This system does away with ducts, making it more compact and easier to fit into all sizes and types of rooms.

Ductless HVAC costs as little as $5,000 and, once fitted, adds $10,000 on average to your home’s resale value, so you’ll have no trouble recouping the cost. Going ductless is a perfect HVAC option for older homes since they sometimes don’t have the space for traditional ducts. Compared to a ducted setup, ductless models use 30% fewer watts per hour. So, if you’re consuming 10,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year and paying 15¢/kWh for electricity, you could save nearly 5¢ per kWh by going duct-free.

Installing ductless HVAC is quick, taking just 1 to 2 days. Read our ductless HVAC suitability guide to learn more about ductless HVAC and whether it’s right for your home. We also offer a full range of installation services, replacement parts, and conduct annual maintenance.

Ductwork Repair Arvada

Whatever diameter, shape, and length of ductwork you have, we repair it. Our ductwork repair services and techniques include balancing airflow, conducting leak tests, cleaning to remove allergens and irritants, and sealing ductwork joins and damage.

HVAC Technician Repairing Ducts

One-third of duct air is lost due to leaks, so making sure your installation is in good condition is the most reliable way to lower your energy bills and boost your setup’s energy efficiency. Leaks are easy to spot, too—look out for: unusual noises, large dust accumulations, fumes, odors wafting around indoors, poor airflow, and uneven room temperatures.

For ductwork repair questions, contact us today.

Arvada Home HVAC Inspections

Looking to sell or purchase a property? We provide full HVAC inspections to identify any expensive repairs and ensure individual components are in safe working condition before completing a deal. An average-sized four-bedroom property costs just a few hundred dollars and three hours to inspect. A pre-purchase home HVAC inspection is the number one way to guarantee that there aren’t any surprises for either the seller or buyer and to avoid any unexpected and costly replacements.

We provide annual HVAC inspections for homes and businesses, too. It’s best to complete HVAC inspections before the start of the summer or winter season when HVAC gets used most heavily and is most likely to fail. Our checks include:

  • Ignitor switch electrical resistance testing
  • Smoke and CO detector testing
  • Looking for leaks or poor insulation, which could affect your HVAC setup’s energy efficiency and reliability
  • Ensuring furnace parts, filters, flues, vents, and ducts are obstruction-free and in safe working condition

To learn more about the process and its benefits, read our post: Why You Need an HVAC Inspection. Call or message us to book an inspection.
