Dealing with a home's water and plumbing system can be a tricky situation. Sometimes, homeowners may not even recognize the symptoms of what could be a preventable but costly repair. For example, slab leaks. A slab leak is an industry term for a leak within the water lines running below the concrete floor of your home.

At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we care about water conservation and we strive to teach our customers how they can save water in their own homes. With some simple plumbing tips and tricks, you could be saving money on your bill and saving water for your community!

Making sure one’s bathroom plumbing is fully functional and up-to-date is a must for homeowners. Bathroom plumbing can refer to three distinct plumbing projects:
Each job requires different steps and significant attention to existing pipes, drains and water sources. Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing recommends that you do not compromise with your bathroom plumbing!
Here are some signs that you need your bathroom plumbing checked out by a professional:

If you’re experiencing problems with your drain and sewer systems in your home, we understand your frustration. Luckily, your local Las Vegas plumbing experts from Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing are here to help. If you do have to deal with a clog, crack or broken pipes, don’t be tempted to fix the issue yourself. It is imperative that you act quickly and seek professional help or the damages and extra costs could add up quickly.
The sewer line running from the drains under your home into the city’s sewer system is extremely durable. These systems are designed to withstand year round weather including excessive heat and pressure. However, despite its durability, if a sewer line and the drains that flow into it are not serviced regularly, the entire system can break down in a matter of years. Maintaining appropriate sewer and drain cleaning practices is absolutely a necessity to have clean water in your home.
With regular maintenance, you can help prevent large damages from happening to your drain and sewer system. If you’re wondering how else you can prevent plumbing problems from arising, read our recent blog post on how to prevent clogging in your pipes.
Beyond clogs, your sewer system can start to develop signs of wear and tear with age. Cracks or weakening in the pipes could be a sign of problems to come, but those issues can be taken care well in advance of a full on failure in your system.

Last week, Las Vegas homeowners were given a familiar broadcast – dust advisory. In Las Vegas Valley, we get torrential winds at times. When you are in this city, those are advisories you must take seriously.
The Clark County Department of Air Quality advised residents and outdoor workers of the possibility of blowing dust because “unhealthy levels were occurring.” According to the department, airborne dust aggravates respiratory diseases, essentially advising for children, the elderly and others to stay indoors.
With advisories like this in effect, homeowners in Las Vegas should consider the air quality in their own home. At Yes!, we have proven ways to check on that sort of thing. For example, air filtration is an effective step toward a cleaner indoor air environment. Another thing to consider, namely when you have an older home, is your air cleaning system.
Lastly, humidifiers are important in Las Vegas because of the air quality. Our experienced indoor air quality technicians can integrate a humidifier into just about any home heating and cooling system, so you do not need to worry about having your entire home comfort system replaced.
In case you missed it, the Las Vegas Sun shared with homeowners everywhere that we are about to have a few more neighbors. Clark County’s population is now the No. 15 most populous county in the country.
If you are like us at Yes!, you have watched this city and county grow tremendously for years (since 1954 for us, to be exact). More people means more homes will either be going up for sale or getting ready to be built. Either way, that means more plumbing. While this may seem like a great opportunity to ask new and upgrading homeowners to contact us, we are more concerned with helping people in those homes.
When looking at your new house, consider the plumbing. Here are three quick tips to help you during that purchase:
We hope that helps, but if you have any other questions, please call Yes! at (702) 425-1889.
While you are considering what to do with that tax return, don’t forget about your home.
Be sure to take care of the stuff you can – and cannot - see. Think about the last time you checked your pipes, lines, water heater or other aspects of your plumbing that you haven’t considered until now.
At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, our skilled plumbers want be sure that Las Vegas homeowners know about the deals this spring. For example:
According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), about a third of all Americans drink bottled water daily. This equals about $4 billion in sales each year. How much do you contribute to that annual figure?
We want to take a minute to teach you about reverse osmosis. It’s not chemistry, rather it’s an easy fix to purify your tap water and save you money each year.
Reverse osmosis is a process used for many of those water bottles, but it can also be used in the home. Basically, this is used to “desalinate” water into a highly purified form of drinking water. Impurities are squeezed out of every drop of water in the reverse osmosis process through a semi-permeable membrane.
You’ll enjoy the results – better taste, no extra energy consumption, easy to keep clean and saves you money. If you are interested in having the taste and safety of bottled water in your Las Vegas area home, contact our Yes! Plumbing experts today or call us at (702) 425-1889 about reverse osmosis.
Las Vegas, Nev. – Jan. 20, 2014 – Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing Services is partnering with the Clark County School District – Community Partnership Program to bring the first-ever “Yes! Think Green Contest” to the young minds of Clark County. The “Yes! Think Green Contest” encourages elementary, middle and high school students to think about and raise awareness of energy conservation. Energy-saving ideas can be submitted in the form of a written essay, drawing or model, from Jan. 20 through Mar. 1, for a chance to win cash prizes.
"It is particularly important that we get the kids in Clark County to start thinking about energy conservation from an early age,” said Beverly Mason, director, Clark County School District School-Community Partnership Program. “Youth are more likely to develop life-long environmentally healthy habits when they learn about energy conservation at a young age. We appreciate the support from community partners in providing educational enrichment opportunities like this contest. It provides additional opportunities to reinforce what we are already teaching.”
“Our hope is that we can spark an interest in our youth to think about the impact they can make on our environment, and share those ideas with the community so we can start making changes right here in Las Vegas,” said Lance Fernandez, regional manager, Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing Las Vegas.
All CCSD students, grades K-12, are encouraged to enter the “Yes! Think Green Contest.” The contest is open to all “green” ideas, including essays, models and drawings. It will be divided into three categories based on school level. Two high school students each will be rewarded with a $125 cash prize; two middle school students each will receive a $75 cash prize, and two elementary school students each will earn a $50 cash prize. Additionally, Yes! will donate $500 to the CCSD school that has the most student participation.
All entries must include a thorough explanation of the idea, the potential impact of the idea on the economy and/or community, and how the idea can be implemented throughout their community. Projects must be submitted via email to email@example.com no later than Mar. 1, 2014.

As a Las Vegas home owner, you have to keep your eye on so many things – the energy costs, the foundation cracks, the appliances breaking, the lawn needing mowing.
The list goes on-and-on, and while we can’t help with the grocery list or other household issues, our skilled technicians at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing do know about your drains and how you can tell when to clean them. Here are three signs just for you:
Whatever sign you have, we have the plumbing experts who can give you the solutions you need. Call us today at 702-425-1889.
Whenever our Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians are out and about in Las Vegas, we often meet home owners who just want information. The one question we are asked more than most is, “What are the real benefits to having a tankless water heater?” That’s actually a very good question. How can something so small work better than something so big? Well, there’s a great benefit right there – you can free up so much space in your garage, or free up a closet in your home.
Here are a couple of other benefits to a tankless water heater:
If any of these reasons interest you about investing in a tankless water heater, contact Yes! today. We’d love to share more information with you.
Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing has served Las Vegas since 1954. And given the limited water supply across the country, specifically around here, water conservation is at the top of our minds. We believe it should be on top of everyone else’s mind too.
Our Yes! technicians got together and determined a few easy ways you can conserve water in your home. Be sure to print and post this some place where you can remind yourself of these New Year resolutions throughout the year.
If you have any other questions about ways to save water – or money on your plumbing – call us today and we would be happy to help make your 2014 a year of savings.
Typically, homeowners in Las Vegas don’t really need to worry about insulating exterior pipes or other preventive measures to protect plumbing in your home. This year has been different.
Earlier this month, Las Vegas homeowners had to brace for an arctic cold front. It even snowed – in Vegas! While our skilled technicians at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing tried to find their closest almanac, we received many calls for advice, maintenance and even plumbing repair. The main reason for those calls was that many residents in Las Vegas didn’t know what to do for times like this in the cold.
Since cold weather is still upon us for at least two more months, our friends at the Weather Channel are saying more of that cold weather could hit us in February, we wanted to provide a quick list for easy tips on how to insulate your pipes because there is still time left.
Check for Warmth. If they are warm, it’s not too late to insulate. If they are already cold, be careful and consider calling a professional.
Look for Pre-Slit Pipe Foam. Most of your neighborhood DIY stores carry this stuff. It makes installation easy.
Don’t Compress the Insulation. Covering too tightly with duct tape may decrease your insulation’s effectiveness at protecting your plumbing.
At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing we are here to help with all of your plumbing needs. If you need routine maintenance or are having trouble due to the unusually cold weather in Las Vegas, we are only a click away!
In case you went outside in your flippers, housecoat and little else to pick up the morning paper over the weekend, you may have noticed a nip in the air. In Las Vegas, we are not accustomed to blistering cold like that. Neither are our pipes in the house.
Did you know what to do to protect them? Statistics shows that there is an influx of shoppers at home repair stores looking for ways to protect their pipes. At Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing, even we receive calls about concerned residents in Las Vegas. That’s why we want to help.
Since 1954, that has been our focus – service should “stay in Vegas” too. Here are a few tips to winterize your pipes for more cold that is sure to hit Nevada:
Do you enjoy hot showers in the winter? This helps. If you are able to cover your pipes completely, it keeps the water warm flowing to your faucets. Your water shouldn’t have to work so hard, and neither should you.
When was the last time your plumbing has been looked at by a professional? We don’t mean look in your shower drain to see if it needs to be “snaked.” We mean plumbing maintenance, and in Las Vegas, that’s important. You are busy, so consider a 75-point plumbing inspection each year that reviews your pipes for safety and assurance.
Sounds strange and unnecessary but you would be surprised by how many homeowners in Nevada don’t understand the need for plumbing maintenance. Did you know even a clogged pipe causes a reduced water flow for one fixture or an entire section of the house? Blockage hurts a home and not back flushing the pipes can hurt more than that.
