Few things will put fear into a homeowner in Boulder City, like a broken HVAC system. Living in the desert means HVAC is a must. A broken one can put people and pets at serious risk. You need it repaired now!
So get it repaired with Ambient Edge’s residential HVAC repair team in Boulder City. Our NATE-certified technicians know how to get the job done quickly and professionally so you can get your home cool or warm again. Here’s why you should consider our team over the competition.
What Causes HVAC Systems to Break?
The biggest thing is no maintenance. If you don’t maintain your system, parts break down faster, and you could need a major repair sooner than you like. We recommend a twice-yearly inspection of your system.
Residential HVAC systems in Boulder City have to work extremely hard to handle the desert weather and blown sand. So we recommend maintenance twice a year rather than once a year.
However, all systems will eventually break down even with maintenance. Like cars, eventually parts wear out despite the best maintenance and will require replacement. In the best case, these repairs are noticed before your system breaks down completely.
Signs Your HVAC System Is Breaking Down
Of course there are obvious signs of a breakdown, like an electrical fault that shuts down the entire system. But there are subtler signs that, caught early, could make repairing the problem much cheaper. Here are some signs to look out for:
- More polluted air (check your air filters!)
- Thermostat isn’t working or can’t keep the temperature
- Your energy bills keep going up, or even jumped up
- Condensation leaks putting water where it shouldn’t
- Hot and cold patches in the house
- Frost on the exterior unit
- Air conditioner or heater never stops running
- Unpleasant smell coming from the vents
- Any animal infiltration that got into your vent system
If you notice any of these signs, call our residential HVAC team in Boulder City for an inspection. Early detection and repair will save you money and put off the time you need to pay for an expensive replacement that much longer.

Will I Be Pressured Into a Replacement?
Some companies don’t like doing the harder repairs on an HVAC system and push you to get a replacement. Not us. We will only recommend a replacement when we can prove that repairing your system will cost more than getting a new one installed.
Installing a new system is expensive, but if your system is old, you could see an immediate improvement of your home’s energy bills and quickly heating and cooling of your house. Over time, your energy savings could knock off a huge chunk of the replacement cost.
HVAC systems usually last 10-15 years here. If your system is running well now, consider setting some money aside for when you need a replacement. Plus, if you keep up with your maintenance plan through Ambient Edge, you’ll get a big discount on any replacement HVAC system for your home.

Does Your System Use R-22?
If you have an older system, one repair problem you might have is finding R-22 refrigerant. The EPA is phasing it out because it’s harmful to the ozone layer. Systems built before January 2010 likely have R-22 refrigerant. If you need more for your system, we will have to use recycled or reclaimed R-22.
The cost of replacing R-22 is rocketing. If you have an HVAC system at your home that uses it, we strongly recommend considering replacement. The repair costs for finding replacement R-22 will quickly grow beyond replacement costs.
As of 2020, there is no more new R-22 made in the US. If your system was made after January 2010, you shouldn’t have to worry about this, but many older systems are entering the window for replacement, anyway. You’re not required to replace your older system, but we recommend it if it needs R-22.
