Air Conditioning

When your air conditioner starts to make strange noises, does not cool well, or the air coming out of the vents smells strange, it is time to call a professional. Air conditioning problems do not get better with time and rarely go away if ignored.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of Placitas homeowners brush aside small air conditioning problems, hoping they will resolve on their own. When a small problem is ignored month after month and becomes a catastrophic equipment failure, the repair can be extremely expensive and in some cases, the equipment can’t be repaired. When repair is not an option, it is time to buy a new air conditioning unit.

Whether it is a small fix or complete heating and air unit replacement, Williams Mechanical has experienced professionals ready to help. But before things start to fail or break down completely, let us offer an affordable preventative maintenance agreement plan.

With our New Mexico company handling your HVAC maintenance, you never have to worry about unexpected costs or degrading system performance. Call us at 505-349-0431 and rest easy knowing your HVAC unit will be working at peak efficiency for many seasons to come. Request air conditioning service online today.

Air Ducts

Do you hear a hissing or rumbling sound coming from the air vents in your New Mexico home? Or maybe the air seems to come out of the vents too slowly and your rooms are not as cool or as warm as they should be? Both of these problems are a result of improperly sized ductwork. Older homes in Placitas are notorious for having ductwork problems, and Williams Mechanical has at least one air duct replacement project every week.

A functioning air conditioning unit is only part of your home’s heating and air system. Once the air is cooled, the ductwork distributes the conditioned air throughout the house before returning it to the unit. Ductwork needs to be properly sized using a duct sizing calculator.

Ductwork that is too small hisses and can cause pressure on the air handler fan leading to premature failure. When the duct is too big, it does not have enough velocity to push the air across the room.

If things do not sound right from your duct or air vents, or you notice an increase in dust swirling around your home, call 505-349-0431 . One of our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) experts will survey your ductwork and HVAC system to show you what corrections are possible. Request air duct service online today.

Commercial Services

Providing commercial heating and cooling services requires a wide range of skills and expertise. A commercial operation could be anything from a neighborhood bistro to a large shopping center or from a huge distribution center to a medical laboratory. Each of these commercial operations requires a uniquely scaled heating or cooling system to work effectively. Turn to a professional service provider such as Williams Mechanical to help you find the right heating and cooling solution for your commercial application.

Heating Services

Finding the best heating system for your commercial business can be challenging. You’ll want evenly distributed heat to maintain your employee and customer comfort levels. You may also require a tight temperature range for particular manufacturing or computer equipment. Many Placitas commercial operations rely on commercial furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps to provide the right amount of heat throughout a facility. Talk with our trained professionals about the most efficient solution for you. Call Williams Mechanical at 505-349-0431 today.

Cooling Services

When the mercury rises in the summer, you’ll want a consistent cooling system for your commercial operation. For some companies, this is primarily to keep your employees and customers cool, comfortable, and productive. For other facilities, cooling levels may be required to maintain equipment functioning or product quality. Our professional heating and cooling company can share the commercial air conditioners, heat pumps, cooling towers, and chillers that are available to you and help you choose the best commercial cooling solution for your New Mexico company.

Maintenance Services

Once you have a commercial cooling and heating system installed, be sure to hire a professional to perform regular maintenance. Our team will come out to inspect, clean, and tune-up your system and suggest repairs before the system fails. Check out our convenient maintenance plan so you won’t even have to remember to give us a call. Request commercial service online today.

Boilers

During a frigid New Mexico winter when temperatures drop near freezing, your home or small commercial building needs the strong heat output that only a boiler can provide. From heating water for baseboard heaters to supplying heat for radiant floors, boilers are the true workhorse of America’s heating systems. We are proud that Williams Mechanical is one of the Placitas area’s leading boiler installers and service companies.

We love maintaining old boilers. Some of the older boilers we take care of have been in service for nearly 30 years, and with our professional boiler maintenance agreement plans, as a boiler owner, you can expect your boiler to work for decades. When it is time to upgrade to a new boiler, we are there to help select the right-sized boiler with the power and efficiency you need.

Do you have an old boiler in need of tuning and professional maintenance? Maybe you are ready to replace the old cast iron boiler with a high-efficiency condensing hot water heater. We are ready to help, just call us at 505-349-0431 . Request boiler service online today.

Ductless Systems

There are both pros and cons to a ductless system, or a mini split. There are those homeowners here in Placitas who love their wall-mounted mini split units, yet others prefer to go with the conventional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit hidden above the ceiling or in a mechanical closet.

The ductless split pros: lower energy bills and better zone control. The cons: more frequent filter cleanings and sometimes, but not always, a high installation cost (although at Williams Mechanical we would love to do a cost comparison for you).

Ductless systems are an excellent way to add additional heating or cooling to a single room without having to remove large sections of wall or find space above the ceiling for a standard ducted unit. Ductless systems are unmatched for their efficiency and quiet operation.

If you would like to see what a ductless system can do in your New Mexico home, call our team at 505-349-0431 . You will be surprised at what a ductless mini split can do for your home’s comfort. Request ductless system service online today.

Electrical

Whether you are building a new house, renovating an old one, or just looking for routine electrical repairs somewhere in between, call our expert team at Williams Mechanical for all your electrical service needs.

Building a brand new home in Placitas can be exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. You will be able to design your place exactly as you want it, and with all the technology and electronics available today, that can be quite an adventure.

Be sure to consult with one of our professional electricians to discuss what system will be required in your new home. If you would like to install a whole-house entertainment system, have connectivity in every square inch, or utilize the latest smart home technology available, you may want to build your electrical system requirements around that technology.

If you live in an older New Mexico home, it may be important to reevaluate your circuit breaker panels, wiring system, and other electrical components to be sure they are still up to building codes and do not pose any safety or fire risks to you and your family.

In addition, if you are planning on adding technology or expanding your electrical needs, you will want to be sure you don’t overload your current system. Older homes were often not designed to handle the electrical loads we tend to use today.

Even if you are not planning on building your dream home right now or any major renovations, when you find yourself in need of a minor electrical repair or expansion, turn to our team of professionals.

Call Williams Mechanical at 505-349-0431 for more details and information about electrical systems, upgrades or repairs. Request electrical service online today.

Furnaces

Nothing heats as hot as gas. Electric strip heating is expensive and heat pumps can lose efficiency when the weather gets too cold. But gas starts hot and provides inexpensive, consistent heat no matter what the outside temperature.

One of the best furnaces available to homeowners in New Mexico is a hybrid system that uses the heat pump cycle as the first stage of heating followed by a gas furnace as the backup. Homeowners get the best of the heat pump’s efficiency plus the strong heat when it gets really cold outside.

For Placitas homeowners who prefer to use gas as the primary heating source, Williams Mechanical services and installs a great variety of furnace from affordable standard efficiency gas heaters to ultra-high, condensing furnaces. There is a furnace to suit every home and every budget.

But without some professional guidance you may not know where to start. Call us at 505-349-0431 to see how we can work together to bring you the heat and comfort of a new furnace. Request furnace service online today.

Gas Fireplaces

Here at Williams Mechanical, we understand the value of viewing your New Mexico home’s heating and cooling system as more than a simple system. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can be much more than that. They can be part of creating a certain ambience in your living spaces.

And the easiest example of how this can happen is by using a gas fireplace. These fireplaces add heat in a visually stunning way to your Placitas home, no matter where they are. Unlike traditional wood fireplaces, gas fireplaces require less maintenance and less upkeep. No chimneys to sweep or wood to split.

Unlike disappointing models in the past that weakly sputtered blue flames over log imitations, the gas fireplaces of today are highly realistic models that range from old-school styles to sleek, futuristic works of art. Not only will they look amazing, but they will also provide an extra boost of heat for your home.

More practically speaking, gas fireplaces are comparatively simple to set up, easy to maintain, and provide most of the benefits you want from a fireplace.

If you have been looking for some way to add a little extra flair to your home or you can’t wait to move ahead on your dreams of a flickering fire, call Williams Mechanical today at 505-349-0431 . Request gas fireplace service online today.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

Over the last decade, the efficiencies of heating and air conditioning equipment have reached unprecedented levels. Along with the improvements in operating efficiencies have come heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and equipment that are also easier to use and last longer than previous variants of the equipment.

One excellent example is the advancement of geothermal or ground source heat pumps. Although geothermal systems have been around for several decades, only in the last 10 years have these systems been recognized for their efficiency and longevity. Williams Mechanical has seen an astounding increase in geothermal installations in Placitas.

Geothermal heat pumps reject and absorb heat from the ground instead of the air like a conventional heat pump. There is no outdoor condensing unit with a geothermal heat pump, making it the perfect system for New Mexico homes and small commercial buildings located near the ocean or factories where the air quickly corrodes outdoor condensers.

Is a geothermal heat pump right for your home? Call us at 505-349-0431 . We would be happy to explain how geothermal heat pumps work and how they can make your heating and cooling system better. Request geothermal heat pump service online today.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are by far the most common heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system installed in New Mexico, and the pace of growth for these systems shows no sign of slowing. Heat pumps are so popular because they save a lot of money over other units that use electric strip heat.

Heat pump units can draw heat energy out of the atmosphere even when outdoor temperatures drop below 60 degrees. It is cheaper to use the heat pump cycle to warm your home instead of the electric strip heat. Some Placitas homeowners report their heating electric bill has dropped by half when they install a new heat pump.

Heat pumps can lose efficiency when the outdoor air drops below the 45 degrees Fahrenheit because there is so little heat energy to transfer into the house. When temperatures get too cold, the heat pump can use a backup heat source like natural gas or propane.

Is your home right for a heat pump? Williams Mechanical can show you the different heat pump options for your home. Call 505-349-0431 to speak to one of our experienced HVAC team members. One call and we will be right there to help. Request heat pump service online today.

Home Automation

It was not that long ago the only things in your home you could control remotely were the garage door and the TV. Times have changed dramatically, and it seems we can remotely control every device we own from our car to our refrigerator and our air conditioning unit.

Control of these systems is more than just convenience and cool factor. Turning off energy-consuming appliances when not in use can save you a lot of money and reduce wear and tear on the equipment.

New Mexico is seeing an explosion in home automation devices and Williams Mechanical has responded by hiring the Placitas area’s best and most experienced professionals in the field of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) home automation. Our professional team has been connecting heating and air systems to smartphone apps for years, reducing energy bills and giving homeowners control over their houses like never before.

It is time for you to get the control over your home that others are already experiencing. Call us at 505-349-0431 and we can perform a full survey of your home's systems and bring home automation to you. Request home automation service online today.

Indoor Air Quality

Breathing is something we all take for granted but is absolutely vital to our existence moment to moment. Here in Placitas, most of us stay indoors nearly all the time, so the quality of the indoor air we breathe should be important to us. Our team at Williams Mechanical wants to help you be sure your indoor air quality is safe and healthy.

In nearly all indoor environments, dust, off-gassing from paints and carpets, and other pollutants are present in the air we breathe. Sometimes smoke and pet dander can be added to the mix. In most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, an air filter can remove some of these pollutants. Some New Mexico homeowners may choose to have a high-efficiency HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to remove even smaller particulates.

Indoor air quality problems may result in discomfort for you and your family or, in some cases, chronic long-term health issues like allergies and asthma. When you have one of our professionals come out and test your indoor air quality, you may discover areas that require remediation. New filtration systems, air purifiers, duct cleaning services, and other solutions may improve your situation.

Call our professionals at Williams Mechanical. Our number is 505-349-0431 and our trained experts are standing by to help remedy poor indoor air quality issues. Request indoor air quality service online today.

Maintenance

Just like your car requires regular oil changes and tire rotations to keep it running smoothly, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system will work much better if you take care of it on a regular basis. The professionals at Williams Mechanical recommend a biannual maintenance checkup to keep your Placitas home comfortable year-round.

The best times to schedule an HVAC maintenance service call are during the spring and fall. These are the seasons when your furnace and air conditioner are probably not in full operation yet, which means they are the perfect times to get them ready for the hot summer or cold winter. In addition, these are the seasons when HVAC professionals are not constantly under the gun with emergency service calls, which allows them to provide excellent service at an affordable price.

When you call your HVAC team in New Mexico, you’ll be getting a complete maintenance package that includes a thorough inspection, cleaning and tune-up. That means all your components will be lubricated, tightened and checked for wear and potential malfunction. In the long-run, this inexpensive service call may save you an expensive emergency repair call, reduce your energy bills, and lengthen the life of your system.

Plumbing

Plumbing problems can be some of the most irritating issues a New Mexico homeowner can face. Running water and functioning bathrooms are the norm as well as not having to think about those big pipes in the basement. When your plumbing system malfunctions, you could be faced with anything from a dripping faucet to a broken sewer line. Whether you are dealing with a mere inconvenience or a major issue, our Placitas-based plumbers are here to reduce your hassle.

Our team at Williams Mechanical provides a range of services to ensure your plumbing setup is operating smoothly and efficiently. One easy way to reduce plumbing problems is to have professional routine checkups on your seemingly functional system.

Little issues will catch the eye of one of our qualified specialists, and we could save you hundreds of dollars in water-damage costs down the line. If an issue has already surfaced, our plumbers are equipped with the necessary resources and experience to properly address it.

If you are looking to install or expand a plumbing system, our plumbers can also be of assistance. It is always good to have veteran help when you are building from scratch.

And when you are expanding or remodeling, you will want our experience on your side. Plumbing setups are often unique and complicated, and it requires a skilled professional to properly integrate your new system into your old setup.

When you are ready for more information, please reach out to Williams Mechanical at 505-349-0431 . Our friendly professionals are ready to provide you with excellent service. Request plumbing service online today.




Zone Control Systems

Imagine waking up in the morning in a nice, cozy bedroom and getting ready in a warm bathroom. As you head downstairs for your morning cup of coffee, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system lowers the upstairs temperature until just before bedtime while the kitchen is comfortable for the next hour. Once you head out the door, the entire house goes into energy-conservation mode while you are away.

That’s a very real scenario for Placitas homeowners who have invested in zone control systems. One of the newer types of HVAC technologies available,zone control systems feature multiple thermostats that manage temperatures in various areas of your home. When heating or cooling is called for, a set of dampers automatically opens and closes to redirect your cooling or heating to the calling zone.

In the past, managing this task may have required physically opening and closing vents, which can damage a conventional HVAC system if doing so restricts air circulation too heavily.

Our Williams Mechanical trained experts can tell you all about zone control systems and how they can benefit your New Mexico home.

Call Williams Mechanical at 505-349-0431 to see if zone control systems might be a good fit for you. Request zone control system service online today.
