Renewable Energy Basics – Water

We have heard so much lately about conserving energy, high efficiency HVAC systems, hybrid cars, triple pane low-e windows and the list goes on and on. Sometimes we need to go back to the basics and remember conserving water can be equally as important to a sustainable future. If you are living in a older home there is a chance some of your plumbing fixtures could be using more water than necessary. Did you know toilets manufactured in the 1980’s or earlier use 3.5 gallons per flush compared to newer toilets that use only 1.6 gallons per flush? In addition,

GeoThermal…the initial cost is so large.

This is what I always hear. But if one peels the layers of the onion back, one may discover it isn’t really so.. First there are the Utility Companies and their large incentives/rebates, then there are Federal Tax Credits, then there are State tax credits and finally even the counties are helping with no increase to property taxes. And I haven’t even mentioned your annual energy cost savings. Call us and let us provide you a detailed price break down before you decide the dollars are to much.

GeoThermal and Richard Feynman

“I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of uncertainty about different things.” — Richard P. Feynman I can only wish that I had said something as brilliant and as elegantly stated as Mr. Feynman. This statement is exactly the way it is when heating and cooling your home with GeoThermal Renewable Energy. You may have approximate answers and possible beliefs, but you need a contractor that knows and can deliver on the promise. Yavapai Plumbing & Heating where promises

What is the True Cost of Repair?

Repair vs. Replace…… Before considering going through with an expensive repair to your current Air Conditioner, Furnace, or Water Heater you should evaluate the advantages of replacement.  Four things to consider before making a repair are as follows: 1.  The cost of the repair. 2.  The future cost of repairs over the next 5 years. 3.  The utility cost savings of new equipment over the same 5 year period. 4.  The cost of inflation of a new system now vs. 5 years from now. You may find that investing the money you will save by not repairing your old and

Office Manager is Thinking about AC, Should You Be?

What an interesting season we have had already. One day it is sweater time the next where are the shorts. Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining I would much rather be here in beautiful Prescott Arizona than back east where they have to shovel snow on a daily basis just to get out of their driveway. I know that the warmer weather is coming so get ready to enjoy and don’t forget to have a tune-up done on your cooling system to keep it running smoothly.   Thank You Crystal Judd Office Manger
