Mastermind Mechanical offers a broad range of heating services for customers throughout the Las Vegas region. We know that many people in this area want to limit their energy bills during winter. Modern space heaters can be an effective way to do that with relatively little investment.

Localized Heating

While zoned heating is becoming more prevalent, many homeowners still have traditional central heating. This means that the selected temperature applies through a home. That can be wasteful, for instance, if everyone is in the TV room. A space heater in that room can keep everyone comfortable while letting you drop the main temperature as much as 10 degrees, which is a huge difference.

Ease of Use

Space heaters have been around for decades, and they have evolved substantially in that time. They are less expensive than ever before, and they are quite easy to use. Just plug it in, rotate a dial and enjoy the heat. Safety has improved greatly as well. Burn and fire risks are much lower with newer space heaters, and many models have switches that can trip during various scenarios to disable the unit.

Requires Active Monitoring

Despite how safe space heaters have become, they still have to be monitored actively. That is fine in many scenarios but diminishes their overnight usefulness. They should not be in any room that will lack adult supervision for any stretch of time.

Positioning and Repositioning

Space heaters remain the leading cause of residential fires during winter. You have to position them with great care and perhaps even prepare the spot to avoid fire and burn hazards. If you will use the heater for an extended period, you will also need one or more additional positions prepared in advance so that you can move the heater and avoid overheating of a fixed location.

Preventative HVAC Equipment Maintenance In Las Vegas by Mastermind MechanicalChange your home air filter about once every month.

What is your home air filter?

Your home air filter is in the air intake for your furnace and air conditioner system. Air from your home is pulled through the intake filter (as seen in the image to the right) and from there into your heating and cooling system where it is heated or cooled to equal your indoor temperature settings. The filter collects any dust in the air, cleaning your indoor air as it conditions the temperature. You will be surprised at how much dust exists in the air your breathe. A good filter promotes good health! There are probably between one and three intake vents most commonly located in the ceiling in different areas of your home. Conduct a quick walk-through to locate all the air intake vents in your home.
