The Importance of Color in Your Dream Kitchen Design

A warm and welcoming kitchen is the heart and soul of a happy home. However, this importance means that you need to take extra care when redecorating or remodeling in Denver. Even something as minor as a new coat of paint can mean days of upheaval, and major work is something you’ll want to undertake judiciously.

Therefore, it’s vital to get things right from the planning stage onward; this goes for your color choice as much as any layout or furnishing decisions. What should you consider when deciding on a color scheme for a kitchen you’ll love to spend time in?

2 Common Reasons Why Professional A/C Repair is Not Done Proactively

However, no matter how safe these systems are and how professionally installed they are, using natural gas does come with one big risk that should never be ignored—a cracked heat exchanger. The good news is, this can be avoided with routine maintenance and prompt furnace repair in Denver. But, it should definitely not be neglected if you know you have a cracked heat exchanger. Read on to learn why.

It’s no surprise that homeowners across Colorado require cooling unit repairs every year. The unfortunate reality is many of these repairs are done reactively, only when something has gone wrong.

And it doesn’t have to be this way.

Regular, professional A/C maintenance is vital to your comfort at home during the warmer months of the year. It also prevents major repairs or replacements from needing to be done on your air conditioner.

And let’s face it: entering a cool room after a hot day is beyond satisfying. So why do so many of us put regular air conditioning maintenance on the backburner?  

Seasonality

Colorado is known for luscious ski slopes, robust mountain ranges, and a massive variety of outdoor activities. Seasonality doesn’t affect the Colorado lifestyle, yet many homeowners wait for the appropriate season to consider the cleaning, inspection, routine maintenance, and necessary repairs of their air conditioning unit. As your air conditioning unit has most likely been inactive during the colder seasons, having regular service maintenance at least once a year will make sure it’s working properly. Not having anything done regularly will actually void the manufacturer’s warranty, so if your air conditioner does break down and you haven’t had it serviced in a while, it could turn out to be more costly than you had expected.

Bell’s Professional air conditioning services will diagnose the health of your unit, evaluate its energy efficiency, and help determine the best plan forward. Routine air conditioning maintenance lowers the likelihood you’ll have to replace the unit anytime soon while promising the ideal climate for your home.

Do You Have a Plumbing Leak?

bursted copper pipe with water leaking out, 3d illustrationIt probably goes without saying that leaks are something you hope you never have to deal with—they are quite literally the enemy of Denver plumbing systems. There are a number of reasons for this. First off, even leaks that seem relatively “minor,” like dripping faucets for example, can waste gallons of water over the course of a year. These minor leaks trick you into thinking they’re no big deal but then the costs of wasted water start adding up.

Naturally, larger leaks can waste even more water while doing extensive damage to your property, and those leaks that develop in walls or beneath your flooring (which are most of them, honestly) can go unnoticeable for months, even longer. Since most of your home’s plumbing system is hidden from view, and since leaks really can develop anywhere in or around your property, it’s essential that you learn how to spot them. And once you do, be sure to give our pros a call for adequate repairs!

Is Your Heater Making Any of These Noises?

Shocked and surprisedThe common scenario in your home during this time of the year probably looks—and sounds—something like this: you set your thermostat to the desired temperature for your heater to come on. After a few minutes, you hear the fan of your furnace begin to whir. The reason this takes a few minutes is that the plenum has to actually heat up after the burners are lit, and the fan doesn’t start running until that point so it can deliver warmed air to the vents in your home.

Once you’ve heard that spinning, whirring blade and feel the rush of air through the vents, you don’t give it another thought and you go on with your day or your evening. But, what if you hear an unfamiliar noise at startup? Should you just pass it up as a fluke thing and ignore it? Probably not. It’s going to be best that you call for professional residential heating services in Denver, so we can assess your heater to see what’s going on. In the meantime, we’ve shared a few common problem noises below, along with what they can mean for your system.
