It sure got unusually warm all across Denver last March 16. According to CBS Local, temperatures at the Denver International Airport that day reached as high as 81°F, breaking the previous 75°F record set in 2012. It was also the earliest 81°F temperature recorded in the city ever since people started taking climate records back in 1872.

The temperature in Denver has reached an all-time high of 81 degrees around mid-March, besting the previous record of 76 degrees in 2012. The rest of April may see showers and cool days, but April and May are forecasted to be drier than usual, and summer to be hotter than normal. Aside from wildfire season, heat exhaustion during the period could be a concern.

HVAC Investigators, a Charlotte, NC-based company that investigates HVAC damage claims for insurance carriers, released its Annual Claims Report recently. It reported that hail damage accounted for nearly half of reported claims all over the U.S., and a third for actual damage as found after assessment. Actual damage causes also included theft or vandalism, which was the second most common cause, followed by wear and tear, lightning, and water, in that order.

Drains are simply waterways designed to direct wastewater to a specific location where it can be collected easily. This location can be a septic tank, a sewer, or any other appropriate place. Modern life won’t be as comfortable as you know it without drains. Unfortunately, these important waterways could get clogged, even with regular use. If left untreated, clogged drains may further damage the system, leading to costly repairs.
This may surprise you, but air conditioning systems have actually been around for a long time. In fact, attempts at developing cooling technology have been observed as early as 2,000 years ago, more or less. In 2nd century China, there existed manual rotary fans that brought outside air into a room. In 3rd century Rome, ice was supposedly imported from the mountain regions via donkey train to cool an emperor’s garden.
When it comes to plumbing maintenance, there are a number of things that have to be regularly checked and fixed right away. The most common ones include leaks, slow drains, running toilets, septic tank inefficiency, and sewer backup. These problems may seem minor, but their effects can add up and have a significant impact to the home or business.
Millennials have always been known as individuals and have always needed personalization. They need to express their distinct creativity, wherever they may be. For example, they make sure that their home speaks of their unique tastes or aesthetics. When it comes to decorating their home, personal taste may be the strongest influential factor for this generation. This is according to A Houzz survey on decorating trends, which further revealed that comfort is their second priority, while subscribing to design trends would be the least.
Have you ever tried “life hacks” at home? Do you know those quick and easy solutions to everyday dilemmas? Be cautious when you do try them, because some can actually be myths that only end up making your life more difficult. For instance, baking soda has been one of the home remedies for plumbing issues, and some may recommend it to unclog drains. However, the compound can only go as far as disinfecting toilets or masking odors. You can pour boxes of the stuff down your drain, but you won’t find the clog cleared up.
Today’s Denver consumers are product-savvy. Before they part with their hard-earned money for a new HVAC unit, they first make sure to look into factors like energy efficiency and maintenance requirements. Once they assess the different facets of their HVAC options, they are ready to make the purchase. Unfortunately, no matter how high a unit’s energy efficiency rating is, it will be a waste if it was installed incorrectly. A recent survey by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NSIT) reveals that a large number of HVAC efficiency issues are due to installation errors. Overall, these installation mistakes increase household energy consumption by 30 percent.
