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. To be able to recognize it when you do have one, here are some early signs to be on the lookout for:

  • An excessive and unexplainable water bill
  • The sound of running water when no taps are being used
  • Movement at your water meter when no taps are being used
  • Random hotspots on your floor
  • Saturated ground around your house (standing water, mud, moss, etc.)

If these slab leak symptoms prove evident on your property, it is important to call a trusted plumbing professional within your area that can fix such tricky repairs. The plumbing experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing are highly trained in slab leak repair, and would be happy to assist. Call Yes! at (702) 425-1889 or visit YesPlumbing.com to get more information or book a service.

When the sewage line backs up, or that ominous odor overcomes your yard, it's time to assess your septic system. While dealing with this system can be a tricky (and not particularly glamorous) situation, it’s important that plumbing and septic issues are always handled by a professional – trust us! We have seen enough DIY-disasters to know that when it comes to your family’s running water and waste system, you don’t want to mess with it if you aren’t a professional. Here are a few red flags that signify it's time for septic repair: 

  • Bad odors. A major sign that your septic tank is in need of repair is a bad odor coming from  any of the drains or the ventilation system in your home. Some common smells that you should look out for are those of rotten eggs or sewage. These typically mean that methane gas is seeping through your septic system. 
  • Damp areas around your septic tank. If there are plants growing around your septic tank or you notice an unusual amount of standing water near the area, then you could have a septic issue. 
  • Slow drains. If your toilets or drains are having trouble draining, it could mean trouble for your septic tank. This could be because the tank is filled to the brim or there is damage in the pipes. If you can hear a gurgling sound, this is usually a sign that the water and waste isn't flowing as freely as it should be.

If you find any of these occurring in your home, please call a trusted professional to assess the situation. Waiting could lead to a costly, and potentially dangerous, disaster down the line. If you have concerns for your own septic system or are looking for a repair call your local plumbing experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing  at (702) 425-1889 or visit YesPlumbing.com.

Did you know August is National Water Quality Month? Here in Nevada, the driest state in the U.S., we know how important water is to our community, our health and our overall wellbeing. This month marks a time to reflect on the protection and restoration of our water resources, and what we can do to help.

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! 

Take a look back at some of our recent blog posts about water conservation:

If you have any questions, or if you are interested in hearing more about making some changes to conserve water, feel free to call your Las Vegas Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts at (702) 425-1889 or visit http://www.yesplumbing.com.

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: 

  • Simple repairs to temporarily or permanently stop leaks. 
  • Total fixture upgrade, including the bathroom plumbing replacement of sinks, toilets and tubs. 
  • Installation of an extra bathroom in the home. 

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: 

  1. Outdated or broken-down hardware: If your sink hardware or showerhead refuses to come clean, or if chips and rust are starting to appear, it's possibly time for an upgrade. Not only can older hardware make a bathroom look dated but it also can be alarming if bits of metal are chipping off and potentially entering the water stream.
  2. Water leaks: If you turn on your bathroom sink and water dribbles out around the fixture, or if running your tub or toilet leaves a pool of water on the floor, it’s most likely that your hardware isn't properly sealed. In addition, tubs or showers that drain slowly could indicate either a clog or water collecting somewhere it shouldn’t. 
  3. Poor water pressure and volume: If the water coming out of your showerhead doesn't come out at "full blast," your pipes could be corroding. This can affect bathroom sinks, tubs and the refill rate on a toilet. You'll notice it most often in showers when the pressure and volume of water lowers. This problem often requires full bathroom pipe replacement.

If you have low water pressure or broken bathroom fixtures, call the bathroom plumbing experts at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing to have it fixed immediately. If you have any questions regarding bathroom plumbing repairs or replacements or plumbing problems elsewhere in your home, just say Yes! and contact us today. Call (702) 425-1889 or visit us at www.YesPlumbing.com.

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.

If you have any questions regarding drain and sewer line maintenance, just say Yes! and contact us today. Call (702) 425-1889 or visit us at www.YesPlumbing.com.

Preventative plumbing sounds easy enough. Yet, we know most homeowners don’t think about what’s slowly clogging the drains until you’re standing in ankle-deep water in the shower or watching the kitchen sink slowly, and painfully, circle around the drain. Here at Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we want to help you prevent a big problem by performing, cost-effective plumbing maintenance in your home.  Here are a few helpful hints:

  • Use food and hair stoppers in sinks, showers and baths: These inexpensive devices are designed to prevent the passage of the most common drain clog culprits – food and hair. They are also easy-to-find and make a major difference when preventing serious plumbing problems.
  • Clean those drains: have a professional plumber perform a drain cleaning maintenance service once a year to ensure that everything is clear. The plumber will feed a video camera through your drains and sewer system to look for any problematic area then use a special technique called hydro jetting to clean the pipes. This technique is similar to a power washer but with more pressure and a 360-degree nozzle to make sure every part of the drain is cleaned thoroughly.
  • Maintain your plumbing: Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers a comprehensive inspection service in addition to plumbing repair and replacement services. This routine maintenance program is a great way to make sure everything, including clogged drains, is working properly at all times. Your Yes! Las Vegas plumbing experts can find hidden problems that could lead to major issues later on if left untreated.

Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing has been serving homeowners of Las Vegas since 1954 for all their plumbing needs, answering homeowners’ questions and offering tips to  the public. Many of us at Yes! are homeowners in the area and we care about the environment we live in. We want to ensure that all homeowners are taking precautions and are aware of the steps they could take to conserve water in their homes as we continue to encounter this dangerous drought.

It is vital to understand water-saving tips so we can help both our city and our individual homes to save as much water as possible. A few of our water conservation tips include:

  • Beware of silent leakers: These are typically found in the bathroom and a small toilet and can waste up to 20 gallons of water a day. Add a few drops of food coloring to the bowl and see if it runs through the bowl- if it does, you have a leak.
  • Install low-flow toilets: Newer models can use as little as one gallon of water per flush.
  • Consider high-efficiency models of appliances
  • Install a low-flow showerhead in your bathrooms. These can save up to 30% over conventional models.
  • Water outdoor gardens and lawns in the early morning to greatly reduce evaporation that takes place in the heat of the day.

According to water conservationist George Whalen and HGTV.com, “water-saving fixtures can save you as much as $100 a year in utility costs.”

At Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we understand homeowners in Clark County want to save  money.

Do you think your home is water-friendly? Do you think the people in your home understand how to be water-friendly? If not, here are a couple of ways you can help reduce the amount of water you use in your home, and help save you money:

  1. Don’t Flush It. Did you know the EPA says that a leaky toilet can waste 200 gallons of water per day? Toilet (and faucet leaks) should be fixed right away. There are also “low-flow” toilets that were created when water conservation laws prevented the usual seven gallons of water being flushed away. Now, flushing only rids your home of 1.6 gallons of water per flush (GPF). If you don’t have one of these, consider that.
  2. Don’t be a “Butt.” Your toilet is used for all that implies. It’s not an ashtray or a garbage disposal. Every time you flush trash – tissue, small items, or cigarette butts – that uses gallons of water. Get up and put that stuff in the trash.
  3. Don’t Wash on Empty. Your washer is one of the leading culprits of water waste because many homeowners wash clothes when they want to, not when they need to do it. A full load of laundry depends on your washer, but the one consistency there is that you should only wash full loads.

If you have any other questions, just say Yes! and contact us today. Call (702) 425-1889 or look us up at www.YesPlumbing.com.

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.

If you have any questions about the dust advisory’s effect on your home, please contact us at (702) 545-6260 and www.yesairconditioningandheating.com.

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:

  1. Flush. Go to every bathroom and flush the toilets. They should empty and then refill quickly. If they do not, there may one of several issues to consider for plumbing repair (e.g., pumps, pipes, lines).
  2. Shower. If you are close to purchasing the house, go to the bathroom that is farthest away from the home’s water source. Check both the temperature and the water pressure. If the water is already having issues with that kind of distance, there may be something to look at more closely.
  3. Inspect. Check for leaks. First, go to the hot water heater and ensure it is large enough for your needs. If it’s a tank heater, a family of four would typically need a 40-gallon tank. Also, look for mineral deposits in the tank, as well as its age, if this is an older home. Leaks in a home are more common than you would think because it’s easy to tighten a pipe too much or not enough – both cause leaks. Investigate underneath the sinks, as well as the fixtures themselves.

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:

  1. $200 off on a Tankless Water Heater. Enjoy hot water the second you need it and take the opportunity to free up space where that big tank is currently taking up an entire closet. You can also save money and energy by installing a tankless water heater.
  2. $50 off on Any Plumbing Repair. Anything you need, our team at Yes! is ready to help. Drain not working right in the shower? Garbage disposal making a funny noise? There are many things that can go wrong at a moment’s notice. We understand, which is why we want to offer a special deal when those little repairs are needed.
  3. A Plumbing Inspection for less than $30. Nothing helps your home plumbing work better that routine maintenance. Trust us, we know.

If you have questions about our Yes! Air Conditioning & Plumbing services or routine maintenance checks, contact us either at 702-425-1889 or at www.YesPlumbing.com.

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.

Call for Entries: Clark County Students Invited to Participate in Energy Conservation Project for a Chance to Win Cash Prizes

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 yesthinkgreen@boltpr.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:

  1. Speed. You know when you are in the shower or bathtub, or even when you are washing dishes in the sink, and the water backs up faster than usual? That could be a sign that you have a drainage issue in your home that needs some attention. There could be a clog in your pipes that any other “liquid” plumber can’t help you fix.
  2. Smell. No one appreciates that scent of “Oh man! What is that?” It’s back-up in your drainage pipes, which isn’t going anywhere except up to fill your home with more of that odor.
  3. Overflow. A quick sign for a clogged pipe is the overflowing toilet. And that always happens when you least expect it and are most against it. If you have children, something may have found its way down the toilet that shouldn’t have.

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:

  1. They can last much longer than a regular water heater. Many homes in Las Vegas are older homes, which means older equipment. A tankless water heater can last a long time. And with a Yes! Guarantee, you can sleep that much better at night about your investment.
  2. They are eco-friendly and pocket friendly. While this may not be as big of a priority now, consider some of the benefits the U.S. government provides home owners for having a tankless water heater. Because they do reduce heating costs and create more efficiency, you can also take advantage of the U.S. Energy Star tax credits in April when the tax man comes around.
  3. They are cleaner. When you have a big tank, it stores water for months at a time. And then you bathe in that, or worse, drink it. Sure, filters are evident but a water tank accumulates rust, which could end up in your water.

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.

  • Brush your Teeth; Turn off the Water – For years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has told us to turn off the tap water while we are brushing our teeth. Do you know why though? You can save as much as 2,500 gallons each year! Think about that in terms of dollars next time you leave that faucet running.
  • Take a Shorter Shower – During the winter especially, it’s easy to stay in the shower because it’s warm and feels refreshing; however, by staying in there, the meter keeps running. Just cut five minutes off your shower time and you could save as much as 20 to 40 gallons of water each year.
  • Full Loads Only – Whether it’s your dishwasher or laundry machine, only use it when you can fill it. We understand liking to keep the bins regular and the sink empty, but much like the shower, the meter is running every time you use these appliances. If you have to clean a partial load, adjust water levels to match the size of the load.
  • Maintenance Should be Regular – A little maintenance now can save you a large headache later. When was the last time your pipes and faucets were checked for leaks? Did you know that the EPA says the “average household's leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year?” If you aren’t sure what to look for, invite us over and our skilled technicians can help.

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:

Insulate Your Pipes.

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.

A Quick Look.

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.

Flush the System.

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.

Interested in learning more? Just say “Yes!”

This holiday season as the in-laws overstay their welcome and your holiday party grows larger than expected, your showers, toilets and sinks are likely going to see a lot more action than normal. In the event that you end up Googling “Las Vegas Plumbing” and call the first number you find in a panic, follow these 10 simple steps to ensure you’re hiring a trusted and qualified plumber.

  1. Avoid plumbers offering door-to-door home improvement services. Instead, seek out companies with longevity; they’re still in business for a reason.
  2. Before you accept any work, check references and seek referrals from your neighbors.
  3. Ask for the plumber’s license number and verify that number on the Nevada State Contractor’s Board website (http://www.nvcontractorsboard.com/) to make sure it’s both valid and current. 
  4. Ask about worker’s compensation and business liability insurance. Every company should carry full coverage for its employees. 
  5. To guarantee you are receiving the best service, take the time to research companies and ask for estimates on your needs before accepting an offer. 
  6. Be sure you fully understand any estimates you receive. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  7. Get everything in writing, from the cost estimate to the project timeline. 
  8. Before the plumber begins work, make sure he or she obtains any necessary permits for the work.
  9. Ask the plumber about service guarantees. The plumber should always make it right, every time, with no additional charges.
  10. Ask about special military or senior discounts, if they apply.

There are a lot of great Las Vegas companies out there performing quality plumbing services for customers. Taking a few extra steps to make sure you find a trusted Las Vegas plumber will save you time, money and put your mind at ease knowing you’re receiving the best service for your dollar.
