Castle Pines is located 20 miles south of Denver and is a relatively new city, nestled in the beautiful landscape of central Colorado. It was incorporated in February of 2008 and now boasts a population of over 14,000 citizens. Castle Pines maintains a small-town feel while having the amenities of a large city close by, making it an excellent place to settle down and enjoy life.
Generally, the temperatures in Castle Pines range from 14 degrees in January to the mid-80s in July. The lowest temperature on record for the Denver area was -25 degrees F in December of 1990 while the highest recorded temperature was 105 degrees F in June of 2018. In climates like this, it’s essential to have an HVAC company you can trust. Nytech Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing is passionate about your comfort.
A Total Care Club member of ours called for a demand plumbing service because their water heater was leaking out of the tank. Our plumber arrived and got straight to work assessing the problem. They discovered that the leak was coming from the side of the expansion tank body which indicates a failed expansion tank and checked the house pressure and found it at 85 psi which indicates a failed pressure regulator valve. Given the age of the water heater and presence of pressure issues, it was advised to consider a water heater and pressure regulator valve replacement for the best return on investment and peace of mind. The customer agreed, so we installed an AO Smith 50 Gallon, 40K BTU - Atmospheric Vent Water Heater and re-piped in the existing recirculation pump. We also added a new shut-off to the cold water side and two new water flexes for the water heater and installed a drain pan underneath. Our customer can enjoy their new water heater with no worries, as it is covered by all of our guarantees.
A longtime customer of ours who is also a Total Care Club member scheduled their annual heating maintenance appointment for their 19 year old furnace. Like every maintenance appointment, our tech performed a combustion and heat analysis and discovered that the blower motor was leaking oil and ignitor was flecking. They spoke to the homeowner about the pros and cons of repairs vs replacement, and the homeowner decided to move forward with setting up a comfort consultation for a furnace replacement. The techs at Nytech replaced both the furnace and air conditioner and added a humidifier and new Sensi-Touch thermostat for the ultimate upgrade in home comfort. The Lennox furnace is a standard efficiency, multi-stage variable speed furnace and the Lennox a/c is a single stage, mid efficiency air conditioner. This new system is backed by our Golden Guarantees.
We were called out on a no heat repair call on a cold March day and got straight to work. Upon diagnosis, our techs discovered the induced draft motor spinning without load, which was caused broken fan assembly pieces inside its housing. They also noted rust on the top of the blower deck, which lead them to inspect the secondary heat exchanger. To their surprise, they discovered the secondary heat exchanger had failed, which brings the potential for the furnace to have carbon monoxide related issues and/or flame roll out issues. Both the induced draft motor and the heat exchanger would need to be fully replaced in order to bring system back into safe operation. These repairs exceed the value of the furnace, so it was recommended to replace the furnace instead of repair, and the replacement was scheduled for the next day. We replaced their furnace with a high efficiency Daikin furnace and custom plenum. This new system is backed by our Golden Guarantees.
A Total Care Club member scheduled their annual maintenance inspection for both their furnace and water heater, which both happened to be 22 years old. During the inspection, our techs discovered some extensive issues on the systems. To start, they flushed the water heater and didn’t detect any active leaks (which is great), but the system was very scaled up, the T and P was stuck closed, the expansion tank failed, and the PRV failed (which is not so great). Next, they moved on to the furnace cleaning and inspection. There they discovered that the blower motor and inducer motor bearings were showing early signs of mechanical failure, the flame sensor was low, the blower capacitor was out of specs, the blower assembly was dirty, and worst of all, airflow was slightly restricted and combustion overfired which was putting out high levels of CO. Because of the age of both systems and the high cost of repair, it was recommended to replace the water heater and the furnace, and a free replacement consultation was scheduled. We installed an AO Smith Signature 100 40 Gallon Atmospheric Vent Water Heater and Lennox Standard Efficiency Multi-Stage Variable Speed Furnace. This process included the removal of the old units and setting the new units level. We sealed up at all new joints on furnace, rewired in all high and low voltages on the furnace, redid the gas line adding a sediment trap, and rebuilt the flue in b-vent. On the water heater we redid the water lines adding new shut offs on hot and cold sides, installed a new expansion tank matched to house pressure, and redid the gas line adding a sediment trap. We ran a combustion analysis and static pressure test to ensure safe and efficient operation and adjusted fan speeds and gas flow as needed for optimal performance. This entire project is backed by our Golden Guarantees.
We were called out to a Total Care Club member’s home for a demand repair service, according to the customer, the furnace was making a weird noise, turning itself off, and wasn’t producing any heat. We arrived on the scene and found that the system was not operational. Though we managed to get the system to run, we found that the draft motor was amping close to over manufactures specifications, and when the fan blower came on, the tech noticed that the fan motor was not spinning, and the blower was over-amping and seeping some oil. Based on the condition of the system and cost of repair, it was recommended to replace the furnace. The customer agreed, and also wanted to discuss having their air conditioner replaced as well, so a full HVAC replacement consultation was scheduled for later that same day. What was originally going to just be a furnace and air conditioning replacement turned into much bigger, more extensive multi-step replacement. On top of installing a new Lennox High Efficiency, Single-Stage Furnace and Lennox Single Stage Mid-Efficiency Air Conditioner, we also installed a Sensi Wifi Touch Thermostat, AO Smith 50 Gallon Atmospheric Vent Water Heater, OneFlow+ Plus Water Purification system, Reme Halo Air Purifier, and a whole-house humidifier. Needless to say, this customer is SET for total home comfort for years to come!
