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:

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.

Of the various bad scenarios a homeowner can experience, a pipe bursting is one of the most dreaded. It can occur for a variety of reasons, from frozen pipes to excessive pressure. There is never a good time for this to happen, and it can be difficult to prepare for. In today’s post, the plumbers at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing would like to give you some advice about what to do in the event that a pipe bursts in your home. We hope you find it useful.
Give us a call when you need professional plumbing services in Las Vegas; no job is too big or small.
As we already mentioned, pipes can burst because the pressure inside that pipe exceeds the strength of the joint or the material of the pipe itself. While older pipes are at risk of failure due to the amount of wear and tear that they have endured over the years, even new piping can burst, given the right conditions.

We hope our present and future customers had a pleasant Labor Day this September. We know how hard you work to ensure that you and your loved ones have a good life, and we feel the same way about the work that we do throughout the year. Home comfort is our business, so you can rely on our technicians to take care of any issues that you may have. To many of us, Labor Day means BBQ, the start of the football season, and spending quality time with our friends and family. But there is much more to this holiday, and we wanted to share its true purpose with you.
Like many US holidays, the origins of Labor Day are somewhat disputed. While many cite Peter J. McGuire’s (of the American Federation of Labor) suggestion of a demonstration and picnic as the inaugural Monday, others cite Matthew Maguire, then secretary of the Central Labor Union of New York. In the wake of the massive and violent Pullman Strike of 1894, which pitted George Pullman and US Marshals and Military against workers of the Pullman Palace Car Company outside Chicago. Designated as a federal holiday by Congress and President Grover Cleveland in 1894, a mere six days after the strike ended, Labor Day has since become a way of recognizing the contribution that hard working Americans have made to this country.
We wish you all the best, and hopefully you took the time to relax, eat some good food, and take a load off.

The phrase “slab leak” is one that no homeowner wants to hear in regards to their home. Slab leaks are serious problems that sometimes require major repair work to be done on the home. So what actually causes slab leaks and how can you find them before they cause huge damage to your home? Here at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing we’ve been offering plumbing repair in Las Vegas for almost 60 years and have repaired countless slab leaks. We wanted to help our customers better understand what causes slab leaks and how they can detect them early.
No two homes are exactly alike but there are a few common causes that can result in slab leaks in your home. If you’re experiencing a slab leak make sure that you call Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing for plumbing repair in Las Vegas.
In most homes your water line comes in under your property and then enters your home in the basement or the subfloor. Depending on the construction of your home, that water line may actually be embedded in the concrete of your foundation or basement. If the copper pipe of your water line was dented at all before it was laid in the concrete it will have small indentations in it that can wear down over the years from all the water rushing over it. In this case, a small pinhole may develop and allow water to leak out slowly into the concrete of your basement and cause a slab leak.
Another cause of slab leaks could be that your home is in an area with a high water table. If it has rained heavily or if there have been recent floods it could mean that water is leeching up from the ground and into your home’s foundation or slab.
There are a few signs that you should watch for that could indicate that you have a slab leak.

our home’s plumbing system gets a lot of wear and tear every single day as it safely and hygienically disposes of your home’s waste water. All this use can cause clogs to form from hair, debris, food and other solid waste. If you need a Las Vegas plumbing company to help you clear any clogs that you have just call Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing. We have years of experience using all different kinds of tools to remove clogs: including the plumber’s snake (also known as a plumbing auger). We often get asked about how effective plumbing snakes are and if they can damage pipes. We put together a brief explanation of how plumbing snakes work and how they could damage your home’s plumbing system.
When a clog happens near the drain of your toilet or sink, you can use a plunger to force air and water down through the pipes to break up the clog. But often, the clog can happen deeper down the plumbing line. In these cases, you need to call a Las Vegas plumbing expert to help you remove it. One of the tools that your plumber will likely use to break up the clog is a metal snake.
Metal plumbing snakes are basically a long, thin metal wire that your plumber will feed down the pipes. They will continue to insert it down the drain until it reaches the clog. At that point, your plumber will use a handle to rotate the metal wire inside of the pipe which will help break up the clog.
When used by a non-professional plumber, metal snakes can actually cause breaks and cracks in your drains. But even more common, we see homeowners that put the metal snake down their toilet bowl and end up with scratches on their porcelain. A better option is to call a Las Vegas plumbing expert who will try to access the clog through the outside tap usually located near the front of your house.
When you need any kind of Las Vegas plumbing service just call Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing today. Our plumbers have years of experience working with all different kinds of plumbing tools and will be able to safely remove any kind of clog that you’re having.
Your water heater can make a number of different noises as it operates throughout the day. You may hear it make noises as it fires on the burner and you will also likely hear the hot water start to flow through the pipes of your home. But if you begin to hear any new or unusual noises from your water heater, it could mean that something has gone wrong. In particular, water heater rumbling is a peculiar sound that we often get called to repair. If you need a Las Vegas hot water heater repair professional, just call Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing. We have worked on all different kinds of water heaters, including tankless systems.
All the use that your water heater gets can cause it to develop several common problems, one of which is rumbling. There are a couple common causes and solutions that can be done when you call a Las Vegas hot water heater repair technician.
Mineral deposits are often the cause of water heater rumbling. If your home has hard water, it means that there are an excessive amount of minerals in the water, usually calcium and magnesium. These minerals can get deposited in your home’s appliances, like your dish washer, water heater and laundry machine and cause problems. Products like water softeners are designed to remove these minerals or replace them with less-harmful minerals like potassium. If your home has hard water it could cause these minerals to get deposited on the bottom of your water heater. There, they will form a barrier between the burner and the water which could cause that boiling or rumbling sound that you hear. The fix for this is to have a professional flush your water heater and remove the mineral deposits.
If you’re tired of your noisy water heater just call the Las Vegas hot water heater repair technicians at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing.
