Prepare Your AC for Summer

Hotter temps are around the corner and your best defense? Your air conditioner of course. However, when your air conditioning system sits idle for months it does require a bit of TLC to get it back up and running properly.
So act now – on the first sweltering summer day, the last thing you’ll want to do is turn on your AC only to find it doesn’t work. See below for some tips to help get your AC into tiptop shape before the heat really kicks in:

  • Remove any obstructions – Look around your outdoor unit. If anything is around it or restricting its airflow, remove it.
  • Check/replace your filter – Dirty filters restrict airflow, reduce efficiency, and result in poor indoor air quality. Be sure to check and replace your filter as needed (often once a month).
  • Call us for a tune-up! – A tune-up from a Patterson Plumbing HVAC professional is important for ensuring your system’s components are in working order to prevent costly and inconvenient breakdowns later on.

Maintenance and tune-ups are recommended by all manufacturers to provide all of the above benefits and more. While there are some steps you can take on your own to maintain your air conditioning system, it’s best to leave the tune-up process to a Patterson Plumbing & Heating professional. We’re the Pueblo, Colorado area heating and air conditioning tune-up specialists, offering upfront pricing and clean and courteous technicians.

#TuesdayTips for Celebrating Lawn and Garden Month

April is Lawn and Garden Month, time to get out of the house and spruce up your outdoor decor. Whether you have an entire yard or small patio area, use some of the below landscaping tips to get you started:

  • Throw on a little paint – A little goes a long way in your lawn and garden area! Give a pop of color to any piece of furniture or object that could use a bit of rejuvenation.
  • Add a decor piece – Look for a unique piece to serve as your outdoor centerpiece. It could be a fountain, colorful flower pots, or a piece of patio furniture. Feel free to re-purpose something you already have!
  • Get the right mowing height – It’s a common misconception that mowing your lawn short will give you more time until you need to mow again. In actuality, longer grass blades are stronger, look healthier, and don’t grow as quickly.
  • Care for your lawn properly – Your lawn needs a well balanced diet of fertilization and water. Don’t over do either to ensure a healthy lawn.
  • Check your sprinklers –  If you haven’t already, be sure to thoroughly check and clean your sprinkler heads. When it comes time to mow the lawn, proceed with caution to avoid damage!

Tips to Ease Indoor Allergies at Home

Simply shutting yourself off from the outside world isn’t a cure all for allergies. The key? Work to rid the allergens from your home as well.

This Wellness Wednesday we wanted to provide some tips for easing your allergies at home – and how we can help:

Stay squeaky clean – Pollen sticks to everything. Showering, washing your hair, and changing your clothes can help if you’ve been outdoors with excessive pollen.

Sleep often – Not only does it relieve stress, but it also helps your body heal from fighting off allergy symptoms during the season.

Beware of the breeze – Easing up on your dryer usage now that it’s nice enough to hang clothes outdoors? Be careful! This can actually bring allergens inside. Be sure to wash bed linens in hot water and use the dryer to kill dust mites.

Filter it out – Use the air conditioner during warm, humid months to filter out 99% of pollen and allergen-producing fabrics in your home.

TLC for the AC – Remember not to take your AC for granted – it needs some TLC too! Changing the filter monthly and cleaning your air ducts annually is the best way improve your air quality and HVAC performance.

Use this allergy season as a reminder to schedule an air duct cleaning service with us. We’ll give your air duct system a full inspection to determine the level of contamination and follow a precise process for maximum cleaning results. We’re here to help you improve your home comfort!

Spring Cleaning Your Dog – In Honor of National Pet Day

Bathroom to a dog

Tomorrow is National Pet Day – a day to celebrate the joy our furry friends bring into our lives. To keep on the Spring Cleaning trend, we wanted to share some tips on giving your pup a thorough cleaning to show your gratitude:

  • Get physical. Give your dog a physical examination to check for anything out of the ordinary that may have gotten stuck in their skin. Also check that their vaccinations are current as well as their flea and tick control. Spring season serves as a great reminder to review your dog’s records.
  • Spot Clean. Seek out all your pets favorite spots. Get those pet beds, blankets, and crate pads in the washer or out in the fresh air. Very hot water and a hot dryer work well to kill any fleas that may be hiding.
  • Check the Toys. Give all your dog’s toys a once-over and discard any that are too frayed, worn, or no longer used. Boil or wash with soap and hot water any toys that can withstand it!
  • Get Groomin’. Brush your dog first to remove any loose or matted fur and dirt, then give them a thorough cleaning to start off the spring season. Make sure you keep their nails trimmed on a regular basis as overgrown nails can cause discomfort.

Be cautious of cleaning your pets in the bathtub though, as pet hair is a common cause of clogged drains! It’s easy to forget about your drain lines until they are backed up or plugged. Use this time as a reminder to call us for a drain cleaning so you and your four legged companion enjoy bathing with ease.

Water Saving Tips for Earth Month

Water conservation

Committed to saving water this Earth Month? We’ve got you covered. Here are some simple water saving tips to help you save both indoors and out:

  1. Fix your leaks! While we know Fix a Leak Week was last month, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be keeping your eye out for leaky fixtures. Small household leaks can add up to gallons of wasted water a day.
  2. Shower Better – Showers use less water than baths, as long as you keep an eye on how long you’ve been lathering up. You also may want to consider replacing old showered with a WaterSense labeled model to save on water, energy, and money.
  3. Clean Better – When doing the dishes by hand, plug up the sink or use a wash basin. If you decide to run the dishwasher, make sure its FULLY loaded first. While you’re at it, scrape that plate instead of rinsing before placing in the dishwasher.
  4. Create a Water-Smart Landscape Of the estimated 29 billion gallons of water used daily by households in the United States, nearly 9 billion gallons, or 30 percent, is devoted to outdoor water use. By creating a water-smart landscape you’ll create a yard that is both beautiful and efficient, giving your home some extra curb appeal.
  5. Ditch the Hose – Sweep driveways, sidewalks, and steps instead of hosing them off. Also wash your car with water from a bucket instead of leaving the hose running.
