It is Transition Time.

As you make the transition from fall to winter here in the Central New Mexico area, it is easy to switch on the heat without giving it a second thought. However, there are a few important things to check before turning on your heater for the first time this season. It is always safety first, of course as you get ready for the cold weather to come.

Here are some troubleshooting tips – 

1. Is there an uncommon smell like burning dust? 

2. What does your carbon monoxide meter indicate...if you don’t have one, get one! 

3. Listen for noises…does it sound like it is struggling to run normally?

When you notice any of the above signs it may be time to call a heating expert in Belen and Central New Mexico. That begins and ends with a call to Daylight Electric and Appliance. Their expert HVAC techs will come to your home or office and inspect the problem. Call Daylight Electric and Appliance of Belen this fall at (505) 864-3980.

Becoming Carbon Neutral.

It sounds like some international treaty doesn’t it? The majority of utility-supplied electricity comes from fossil fuel sources and is by no means "carbon neutral." Your strategy in your Belen area home needs to include a source of renewable energy. This strategy will reduce your household greenhouse gas emissions and improve the comfort level within your home or office.

Replacing building infrastructure may take some time, especially if you wait until the equipment needs replacing. In other cases, there is a clear return on investment when you are getting rid of an inefficient relic from the past. When you compare current electricity and natural gas prices. Is it worth considering?

Let us talk about it. We are Daylight Electric and Appliance of Belen, NM. The primary candidates for replacement are your furnace and your water heater. Replacing a natural gas furnace offers many opportunities as well. Would you like to explore them together? Why not give us a call at Daylight Electric and Appliance (505) 864-3980.

Is Water Heater Installation a DIY Job?

Perhaps you have decided to install your own water heater. Maybe you want to save a few bucks, or you actually want to test your own plumbing skills. We urge you to stop and consider the potential consequences. There are good reasons water heater installation accounts for a significant portion of the price of a new unit.

Here are some things to consider –

1. Safety first…we can’t emphasize this enough if you are not a plumbing pro. 

2. Having the correct tools of the trade on hand. 

3. You bought the wrong size…now it is a classic case of a round peg in a square hole. 

4. Staying within code…permitting agencies can be pretty strict about code violations.

Have you read enough? If you want your Belen area home to have its water heater installed right the first time guaranteed you should call Daylight Electric & HVAC at (505) 864-3980.
