What is Load Circulation?

Whether this is a brand-new furnace installation or you are getting ready to replace an older heating or cooling system, it is very important for you to get a load calculation done by a contractor.  The load calculation is an estimation of what exact size of a furnace is needed for your castle.

Here are some things included in the calculation –

1.  A complete inspection which includes walls, ceilings, and floors
2.  Assessing windows, doorways, and the size of the room
3.  Finding drafts
4.  Complying with building codes

A professional furnace installer knows all these things and much more.  In the long run you probably will be replacing your furnace with one of the same BTU rating.  Please allow us to help with this task from start to finish.  We are Daylight Electric and Appliance.  If you are replacing a furnace in the Belen and ABQ area just call us at (505) 864-3980.

Beware of Power Lines.

As one of Belen’s and Albuquerque’s experts at installing and repairing power poles we want you to always have a healthy respect for power lines.  If you encounter a downed line and think you can tackle it…you will lose!  These are potentially dangerous moments that may define the rest of your life.

Here are some tips if a power line falls on your car –

1.  Stay inside of your car if at all possible.  In this cell phone era it is a lot easier.
2.  Don’t touch anything on the inside of your car.
3.  Reach for that aforementioned cell phone and call 911.
4.  Warn people outside NOT to touch your car.
5.  Do exactly what the arriving officer tells you to do.

Here at Daylight Electric and Appliance we have a healthy respect for power poles and the lines that join them together.  When you need electrical work done in the Albuquerque area and especially Belen please give us a call.  Again, we are Daylight Electric and Appliance at (505) 864-3980.
