As a family-owned business with 40+ years of experience repairing, maintaining, and installing HVAC equipment in Commerce City, we understand what local homeowners need. Whether you live in a furnace-heated apartment near Pioneer Park or a large house with a solar-powered heat pump overlooking the wildlife refuge, we repair any kind of heating and cooling equipment in the city.

Each year, nearly a quarter of HVAC equipment owners require a repair, according to a Consumer Affairs study. If a repair is required because of an unexpected breakdown, homeowners tend to pick the first company they find, especially if it’s an emergency. However, making a rushed choice is risky, as professionalism, prices, and expertise differ in the HVAC sector. To ensure top-level service, all of our engineers have a NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certification, which is the country’s most well-regarded HVAC training and certification organization.

Working with a NATE-certified company guarantees that the engineer fully understands how to complete the job in a time-efficient, safe and cost-effective manner, thanks to their rigorous training. In addition to offering consistent high-quality work, NATE technicians are adept at repairing, maintaining, and diagnosing any type of HVAC equipment, including working with emerging technologies and newly released products. This is because they receive regular in-house training to ensure their skills are kept to a consistently high standard and in line with NATE’s stringent requirements. Plus, their expert workmanship means call-backs and warranty returns are less likely, as they're aware of how to get the job done correctly the first time.

When deciding which HVAC company to work with, it’s important that you ask them the right questions to identify whether their technicians are qualified and reliable. If you're based in Colorado, or another state, read our guide to choosing the best HVAC company if you want to avoid hiring an unqualified company. 

 

Commerce City Heating and Cooling

Commerce City’s average annual temperatures range from 30°F to 75°F, so it’s worth having a reliable HVAC setup if you want to ensure year-round comfort and reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns. Without an optimally running system, you risk:

  • Health issues related to mold, dampness, and allergen build-up in your ducts and filters.
  • Fires caused by faulty electrical wiring, foreign objects, such as hair and plastic, as well as excessive accumulations of dust.
  • Costly damage to internal components, such as cracked heat exchangers caused by a blower motor overheating.
  • Leak-related heat loss. The Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy says the average US home loses $300 per year to drafts, leaks, and outdated equipment.
  • Spending extra money running energy-inefficient appliances, such as a space heater, to counteract indoor cold spots caused by poorly maintained HVAC equipment.

A study by the Energy Information Administration estimates that natural gas heating bills rose more than 25% from 2021 to 2022, so it’s well worth investing in repairing and optimizing your HVAC setup to save money and protect yourself against future energy price rises.

 

Commerce City HVAC Services

Our widely skilled team and long-standing experience in the industry means we can tackle any type of HVAC project, ranging from installing heat pumps powered by renewable energy to fixing a decade-old boiler.

Here’s a rundown of the services we offer:

Home Heating in Commerce City

A mid-winter HVAC breakdown is a total nuisance but easily avoided if you regularly maintain and service your equipment ahead of the season. Whatever you do, don’t skip doing it as it increases the risk of needing an expensive emergency call-out.

We’re ready to assist with any HVAC project 24/7/365, whether it’s replacing a furnace or water heater repair in Commerce City. Our team is experienced with all types of heating equipment, including heat pumps and modern devices, like smart thermostats and vents. The cost to replace an HVAC setup completely, including any ductwork, is $7,000 on average. To avoid replacing your system unnecessarily, try our HVAC repair or replace quiz.

Apart from repairing or installing a new setup, there are several other methods for improving the warmth of your home:

  • Prevent drafts by blocking your chimney
  • Improve floor insulation using carpets or rugs
  • Reduce heat loss with thermal curtains or closing your curtains after sunset
  • Circulate unused warm air around the home by opening the doors to your shower or kitchen, when in use
  • Pull warm air trapped at the ceiling downward by reversing your ceiling fan
  • Ensure any south-facing curtains are open on sunny days to allow solar heat to penetrate indoors
  • Eliminate draft-causing gaps and cracks using caulk, insulation, and weather-stripping
  • Prevent HVAC system ‘short cycling’, which is when it gets stuck in an overheating-shutdown-restart loop, by cleaning your air filters regularly
  • Use a smart thermostat to create a heating-cooling schedule that automatically adjusts to any changes in weather or cold spots in individual rooms

Air Conditioning in Commerce City

Our services for air conditioning installation in Commerce City, plus repair and maintenance, are available for all types of home cooling equipment, such as evaporative cooling systems, wall-, window- and floor-mounted ACs, as well as central ACs and ductless mini-splits.

Ultimate Heating & Cooling’s technicians are certified by NATE and have extensive experience with all makes and models of AC equipment. Plus, we’re an authorized Carrier dealer, which is one of the country’s top HVAC manufacturers.

We handle all four heat pump types too: geothermal, water source, air source, and hybrid. They're a highly effective home cooling appliance and they can reduce your electricity bill by half. 

 

Home Air Quality in Commerce City

Your home’s air quality directly affects your health and wellbeing. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says the ideal indoor relative humidity (RH) is 30 to 50%.

Below 30% is considered dry air and it can cause:

  • Sinusitis
  • Dry skin and throat
  • Nosebleeds
  • Chapped lips
  • Aggravation of pre-existing medical conditions, such as asthma and bronchitis

Apart from health ailments, dry air also damages indoor surfaces as it causes chipped plaster, flaking wood and wallpaper/paint failure.

With regular HVAC maintenance, you can protect yourself against the effects of dry air as it eliminates excessive amounts of dust and allergens in the air. Using a humidifier is another way to improve your home’s indoor air quality. Our guide, How to Fix Dry Air in your Home, outlines their benefits and provides other tips for raising your home’s indoor RH.

Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is the most important air quality issue homeowners need to be aware of, as it causes over 400 deaths and 50,000 emergency department visits per year. Over a third of the deaths occur between December and February as homeowners close ventilation sources, such as vents and windows, to retain warmth and reduce drafts. Read our post covering the signs and symptoms of CO poisoning if you’re not familiar with the dangers.

Beyond indoor RH and CO levels, additional factors dictating indoor air quality include whether asbestos, radon, combustive elements or VOCs are present, as well as the amount and type of bacteria, mold, and allergens. We offer whole-home tests for these substances, free advice for improving indoor air quality, and install CO detectors and humidifier/dehumidifier units. Contact us to discuss. 

 

Ductless Heating and Cooling in Commerce City

Looking to add heating or cooling to a part of your home not currently serviced by your HVAC? Try a ductless setup. They’re ideal for retrofitting into rooms that don’t have enough space for traditional bulky ductwork, such as an attic or garage, as they’re more compact. Converting under-used space into a livable room adds an average of $10,000 to your property’s resale value, according to a study by HomeLight. Ductless costs as little as $5,000, so you’ll quickly recoup the costs when you sell your house.

The average age of Commerce City homes is 35 years old. Older properties are built sturdy but are more costly to maintain. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, properties older than 30 years have annual maintenance costs equal to 3% of their original purchase price. For a $200,000 home, that means maintenance costs of $6,000 per year. The EPA estimates the average US home consumed 10,715 kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2020. Going duct-free will save you hundreds of dollars per year, as they use 30% fewer watts per hour (compared to ducted versions).

As the setup requires no ducts, installation is quick, easy, and usually takes just 1–2 days. We have a full range of ductless HVAC services, ranging from installing new units to maintaining and repairing parts, such as the outdoor compressor and indoor air handling unit. If you’re considering an upgrade, check out our post, which explains how to assess your property’s suitability for ductless.

 

Ductwork Repair in Commerce City

Flexible ducts, round ducts, duct seals, fittings—we deal with all models and types of air transmission and ventilation parts.

We use a variety of techniques to repair and improve ductwork, for example:

  • Installing jumper ducts or transfer grilles to balance airflow
  • Sealing ducts with aluminum foil tape or sealant
  • Conducting duct leak and airflow tests
  • Improving HVAC performance by installing duct insulation in unconditioned spaces, such as a basement
  • Cleaning ducts to boost airflow, remove odors, and reduce airborne allergens and irritants

A third of duct air is lost to leaks, according to ENERGY STAR. However, spotting leaky ductwork is easy.

Here are the main signs:

  • Damaged seals
  • Humming or buzzing noises
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Crushed, rusted, or bent ducts
  • Unevenly heated or cooled rooms
  • Poor airflow
  • Hot or cold spots on drywall
  • Fumes traveling from the basement or ground floor into rooms
  • Excessive or increasing indoor dust accumulations

Commerce City Home HVAC Inspections

Home HVAC inspections are recommended before the start of the summer or winter, as this is when they get the most use.

We offer an inspection service, which includes:

  • Repairing any essential components
  • Checking carbon monoxide and smoke detectors for faults
  • Using a multi-meter to test the ignitor switch’s electrical resistance
  • Ensuring furnace parts are dirt and dust free
  • Checking flues, vents, filters, and ducts are free of blockages

If you’re planning to buy or sell a property, we also offer a full HVAC inspection service. It assesses the condition of the system in depth and ensures that costly repairs aren’t overlooked. Examples of what we look for include roof leaks, dampness, insulation integrity, and clogged drains. Considering HVAC equipment is expensive to replace and a full inspection costs less than $500, conducting a pre-purchase inspection is a worthwhile investment. Learn more about what an inspection covers by reading our blog, Why You Need an HVAC Inspection, or contact us to book an appointment.
