Westminster’s average temperatures range from 34°F in winter to much higher in mid-summer. To reduce the risk of stressful emergency callouts and ensure year-round comfort, make sure your HVAC system is regularly maintained and running optimally at all times. Failing to do so risks a variety of costly problems, such as:
With natural gas heating bills rising over 25% from 2021 to 2022, optimizing and looking after your HVAC setup is an effective way to take control of your home finances and reduce the impact of any future energy price increases.

Whether it’s troubleshooting an issue with a water-source heat pump or installing a small window-mounted AC, no job is too big or small for us.

With home maintenance problems, few things are more irritating than an HVAC breakdown on a chilly winter day. Avoiding home heating issues is easy by regularly servicing and maintaining your setup before the season starts. We know skipping it is tempting, but it’s not worth it in the long run as you risk an expensive emergency callout. And, depending on which company you contact for help, there’s no guarantee a technician will be available immediately. Fortunately, we’re available 24/7/365 to assist with any HVAC emergency or project, ranging from water heater repair in Westminster to installing a furnace. We work with modern home heating technology too, such as solar-assisted heat pumps (SAHPs) and smart thermostats.
If you’re facing issues with your home heating equipment and are wondering what to do next, use our HVAC repair or replace quiz to determine whether replacing your setup is absolutely necessary. Installing new heating equipment and ductwork usually costs over $5,000, so taking our quiz could save you a significant amount of money.
Apart from purchasing a new unit or repairing your existing HVAC setup, there are numerous lower-cost ways to improve your home’s warmth and energy efficiency:
We provide services for air conditioning installation in Westminster, including maintenance and repair, for all makes and models of home cooling equipment. Our technicians are certified by NATE (North American Technician Excellence) and we’re an authorized dealer for Carrier.
Heat pumps are our specialty, too. We repair, install, and maintain all four types: air source, water source, geothermal, and hybrid. They reduce electricity use for heating by up 50%, so they’re a highly cost-effective cooling appliance. The national average cost for installing one is around $6,000. However, it’s a worthwhile investment as they transfer 300% more energy than they consume. By comparison, a high-quality gas furnace is 95% efficient. For effective, low-cost alternatives to installing new HVAC equipment, read our tips to keep your home cool.
Indoor air quality directly affects your health. The ideal indoor relative humidity (RH) is 30 to 50%, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The effects of dry air (below 30% RH) on health are:
The health impacts of humid indoor air (above 60% RH) are significant as well:
Dry and humid indoor air also affects your home’s surfaces, such as:
You can eliminate the harmful effects of poor indoor air quality with regular HVAC maintenance, as well as using a humidifier/dehumidifier to improve the RH. Additional methods are outlined in our guide, How to Fix Dry Air in your Home.
The most important indoor air quality problem homeowners should protect themselves against is carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. It causes more than 50,000 emergency department visits and 400 deaths per year. December to February presents the highest risk, as people tend to close vents, doors, and windows to retain warmth—1/3 of these deaths occur during winter months. Our rundown of the signs and symptoms of CO poisoning is worth reading, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the risks.
Apart from CO and RH levels, other factors affecting indoor air quality include:
If you’re concerned about your home’s air quality, we offer whole-home tests for the above substances, including CO and RH levels. We also install humidifier/dehumidifier units and CO detectors and provide free advice on indoor air quality.
Is there an area of your home that’s too small to fit traditional bulky ductwork, like a garage or small basement? If so, a ductless heat and cooling setup is the perfect solution as they’re duct-free and more compact. Converting spaces like these into a livable room adds $10,000 on average to your home’s resale value. It only costs as little as $5,000 too, so you’ll easily recoup the costs if you decide to sell your house. Other benefits of ductless include:
The average age of Westminster real estate is 33 years old. The American Society of Home Inspectors estimates that properties older than 30 years cost 3% of their original purchase price to maintain per year. If your property cost $50,000 when it was built, then you can expect maintenance costs of $1,500 annually. In contrast, properties less than 10 years old typically have maintenance costs of 1% of the purchase price.
Whatever the age of your home, installing ductless HVAC is a reliable way to reduce the cost of running a home, as they consume 30% fewer watts per hour (compared to ducted setups). In 2020, the average US home used 10,715 kilowatt-hours (kWh) and the average Colorado electricity cost was 12.75¢/kWh, so a ductless system will save you hundreds of dollars each year.

Heating and cooling equipment gets the heaviest use in the summer and winter, so we recommend you conduct an inspection before the start of the season. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
If you’re buying or selling a property, we also provide a full HVAC inspection service which takes a broader look at the heating and cooling appliances installed, as well as the property’s condition. Checks look for:
It’s worthwhile investing in a full pre-purchase inspection, as it usually costs less than $500 and ensures any costly faults are detected before you close on a deal. Our guide, Why You Need an HVAC Inspection, explains the process fully.
