Centennial Heating and Cooling 

Centennial’s average annual temperatures range from 21°F to 86°F. To ensure year-round comfort and reduce the chance of troublesome HVAC breakdowns, regular maintenance is recommended. We know it’s tempting to ignore minor issues, such as occasional overheating or unusual ductwork noises, but doing so risks: 

  • Reduced HVAC energy efficiency. Usually, this is because of drafts, outdated equipment, and leaks. American homes lose several hundred dollars per year to undetected system faults, according to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy.
  • Costly damage caused by overheating, which usually affects internal components like the heat exchanger, as well as electrical wiring short-circuits.
  • Using low energy-efficient appliances to combat uneven indoor temperatures, such as space heaters and portable ACs.
  • Irritating respiratory conditions and allergies, such as asthma and bronchitis, due to the excess build-up of allergens, mold, and dampness.

From 2021 to 2022, natural gas heating bills rose by a quarter. If you hire an HVAC professional, they can help you optimize your setup and ensure it’s running as cost-effectively as possible, so you can rest easy knowing that you’ve done what you can to protect yourself against future energy price rises.

Centennial HVAC Services

Our team’s wide-ranging skill set and experience mean we can take on any HVAC project, regardless of the scale or complexity, such as installing long runs of ductwork in commercial warehouses or troubleshooting domestic heat pump issues.

Below is a rundown of our services:

Home Heating in Centennial

If you’ve never experienced an HVAC breakdown mid-summer or winter consider yourself lucky, as they’re usually stressful and inconvenient. Without a doubt, annual servicing and regular maintenance are the best ways to reduce serious HVAC issues.

Whether it’s a pre-season HVAC checkup, installing a furnace, or repairing a water heater in Centennial, we’re here to help homeowners and businesses 24/7/365. We’re experienced working with all types of heating and cooling equipment, ranging from smart thermostat ductless setups to heat pumps.

If you’re considering replacing your current setup, take our HVAC repair or replace quiz beforehand. While Ultimate Heating & Cooling never suggests replacing equipment unnecessarily, it’s possible another contractor might. New installations typically start at several thousand dollars, so our quick quiz could save you a lot of money or at least give you a heads-up that a new HVAC is on the horizon.

Whatever type of home heating setup you have, our low-cost tips below will improve your home’s warmth:

  • Pull warm air trapped at ceiling height down to the floor using your fan’s reverse function.
  • Prevent short cycling, which is when HVACs get trapped in an overheat-shutdown-restart loop, by replacing or cleaning your air filters each season.
  • Close your curtains outside of daylight hours to keep thermal heat indoors. With thermal curtains, you can boost warmth even further as well.
  • Slow the rise of warm radiator air by installing floating shelves above the unit. Also, consider placing aluminum foil behind wall-mounted units to prevent heat from escaping through the walls.
  • Increase airflow indoors by adjusting your ductwork dampers, if you have them. For forced air heat setups, duct-booster fans are another option as well.
  • Improve floor insulation using rugs or carpets, including on top of existing ones.
  • Circulate unused warm air around your home by opening your shower or kitchen doors, when in use.
  • Install a chimney balloon to prevent drafts.
  • Create customized heating-cooling schedules using a smart thermostat. Read our guide to learn more about smart thermostat installation.
  • Stop window and door drafts by applying foam weather-stripping to the frames. Fill cracks and gaps elsewhere in your home with caulk or a similar product.
  • Insulate pipes with slip-on foam tubes to prevent them from freezing in cold weather.
  • Prevent heat escaping through windows that you don’t see out of, like a small basement or bathroom window, by sticking bubble wrap to the glass.

Air Conditioning in Centennial

Local homes and businesses use a wide range of cooling systems, ranging from floor- and window-mounted ACs to ductless mini-splits and evaporative cooling systems. We offer air conditioning installation in Centennial, as well as repair and maintenance services. Our HVAC team is experienced with all makes and models and is certified by NATE, which is the most nationally recognized HVAC training body.

We handle air, geothermal, and water source heat pump installations and repairs, too. Although the upfront cost is high–averaging $5,000–they can cut your electricity bill in half. If you’re unfamiliar with the technology or want to learn more, our heat pump FAQs explain the pros and cons.

Home Air Quality in Centennial

Indoor air quality directly affects your health and well-being. With regular HVAC maintenance, you’ll improve your home’s air quality, as it prevents the spread of dust, allergens, and harmful contaminants indoors.

Maintenance also keeps indoor relative humidity (RH) at safe levels. Below 30% RH is dry air. If left unchecked, it can damage your home’s interior surfaces, such as flaking paint, chipped plaster, and wood decay. It also causes a range of irritating health ailments, such as sinusitis, dry throat and skin, and chapped lips. For tips to balance your home’s humidity, the signs of poor indoor RH, and the benefits of humidifier units, check out our guide to fixing dry air in winter.

Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is the one air quality issue that every home and business should protect themselves against. It causes at least 430 deaths per year, with a third of those deaths taking place between December and February. The reason it’s such a killer is that your body’s red blood cells pick up CO quicker than oxygen, causing you to lose consciousness and suffocate in just a few minutes. Fortunately, with a regular store-bought CO detector, it’s easy to identify unsafe CO levels and protect yourself against its devastating effects. Learn more about the risks, symptoms, and causes by reading our guide: What You Need to Know About Carbon Monoxide in Your House.

For help with improving your indoor air quality, contact us to book an HVAC technician. We offer whole-home air quality tests too, which look for:

  • Bacteria and mold
  • Allergens
  • Radon
  • Asbestos
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Combustive elements

Ductless Heating and Cooling Centennial

If you want to provide heating and cooling to an area of your home that’s unable to fit traditional bulky ductwork, such as a loft or basement, try a ductless setup. Their duct-free design and small diameter conduit, containing refrigerant lines and cabling, fit easily into any size space. Upgrading under-used rooms with HVAC increases your home’s resale value by an average of $10,000 and turns it into a space that’s comfortable to spend all day in or safely store items throughout cold winters and hot summers. If you ever sell your home, recouping the cost of ductless HVAC isn’t hard either, as it costs as little as $5,000.

Ductless has other benefits over traditional HVAC, too:

  • Improved energy efficiency. Ducted versions use up to 3,500 watts per hour vs. 2,000 watts per hour for ductless.
  • Offers excellent indoor air quality, thanks to its professional-grade air filters.
  • Low maintenance and fast installation (1 to 2 days), because of the lack of ductwork.

The median age of Centennial real estate is less than 40 years old. Properties older than 30 years cost 3% of their original purchase price to maintain per year and properties less than a decade old cost just 1% of the purchase price. For a $100k, 30-year-old property, that means annual maintenance costs of $3,000 versus $1,000 for a 10-year-old one.

However old your home is, ductless HVAC is a great way to reduce your energy bills. Plus, you can take those cost savings and use it for other home maintenance tasks. In 2020, Colorado electricity cost 12.75¢/kWh and the average home consumed 10,715 kilowatt-hours (kWh) in a year. Ductless setups use 30% fewer kWh, compared to ducted models, so you could save a considerable amount of money each year.

If you’re unsure whether your home is ready to do away with ducts, read our post: Is My Home Right for Ductless? We’re also available to answer your questions over the phone or via e-mail. Contact us today for free advice and to learn more about our comprehensive range of ductless HVAC repair, maintenance, and installation services.

Ductwork Repair Centennial

We repair all types and models of ductwork, as well as their fittings. Whether you need a long section of wide-diameter round duct replacing or patching up a few seals, no job is too big or small for us. Below are a few ways we repair and improve ductwork:

  • Balancing airflow with jumping ducts or transfer grilles.
  • Insulating unconditioned spaces, such as lofts and garages, to increase energy efficiency
  • Ductwork airflow and leak tests
  • Sealing leaks
  • Cleaning ducts to remove harmful airborne contaminants, like VOCs, as well as odors

Not sure if your ductwork needs repair? Look out for these telltale signs of trouble:

  • Odors or fumes wafting from the basement or ground floor into other rooms
  • Excessive indoor dust
  • Strange ductwork noises
  • Poor airflow
  • Hot or cold spots on drywall
  • Peeling or degraded seals
  • Damaged or rusted ductwork
  • Uneven room temperatures
  • Higher than normal energy bills

Centennial Home HVAC Inspections

Before the start of the winter or summer, hire a professional to inspect your HVAC system to avoid any unexpected mid-season problems. Our inspection services include checking CO and smoke detectors for faults, checking for blockages in your system, and testing the electrical resistance of your ignitor switch—all of which are essential to ensure the safe functioning of your heating and cooling setup.

HVAC inspections are useful for buying or selling a property, too. We offer whole-home, pre-purchase inspection services to ensure that no costly or unsafe issues are overlooked. It costs just a few hundred dollars and covers a wide range of checks, such as the roof condition, signs of dampness, clogged drains, and insulation quality. Our post, Why You Need an HVAC Inspection, outlines all you need to know about the process.
