Test it Out

That it turns on.
That it stays on.
That it cools your home to the temperature on the thermostat.

That it seems to be running the way you remember it running last year.
If there are any problems, turn off the power right away and give us a call for A/C repair ASAP.

Hi, I’m Anthony Pererra, owner of One Source Home Services – your local Colorado Springs heating and cooling pros. Many people always ask me how to ensure their Colorado Springs HVAC system is running tip top for the winter, so I’ve put together the top 5 things that you can do to ensure your home’s heating and air conditioning systems are healthy, safe and comfortable all year round. Here are the top 5 things that you can do:
CHANGE YOUR FILTERS. Changing your filters often will help keep dust, debris, and other particulates out of your system, and help your family enjoy fresh clean air all year round.
CLEAN YOUR OUTDOOR UNIT. Keeping the outdoor coils clear and free of debris will help to make your system run quieter and more efficiently. You can rinse the outdoor unit with a water hose. Also be sure that the area around it, approx. 18”, is free and clear as well, allowing the air to move freely in and out of the system.
CALIBRATE YOUR THERMOSTAT. Make sure your thermostat is working properly. Change the batteries once per year. Also, check the reading temperature with a thermometer occasionally to ensure its reading properly. Using a digital programmable thermostat will help to save money and time.
CLEAR YOUR DRAIN. You can help prevent leaks and clogs by frequently checking on your condensation drain. This will help save thousands on potential water damage in your home.
CLEAN YOUR DUCTS: Having a good, clean air flow system is a great way to ensure the health of your family. Airborne particulates can be harmful to our health and the air we breathe. Start at the registers and follow the duct lines all the way to the air handler or furnace, and also make sure the plenums, and cabinet itself is clean. This is the best way to keep those pesky dust mites and dirt from being re-circulated throughout your home.
I want to ensure your home is the healthiest, most comfortable and safest place you and your family can spend these fall and winter months indoors together. Follow the steps above to help keep your system running tip top and efficiently, or call One Source today.

Colorado Springs, Colorado (November 11, 2021) – One Source Home Service by Air Pros USA is thrilled to announce the local winners of the company’s 2nd annual Veterans Day Giveaway are Alan and Melissa Rolli. To recognize the sacrifices this Colorado Springs couple made in service to the country, One Source Home Service by Air Pros USA surprised them with a new furnace at their home.
“We are extremely thankful to One Source Home Service and Air Pros USA for recognizing all Veterans and we sincerely appreciate the new furnace just in time for winter,” said Alan and Melissa Rolli. “We want to thank everyone who voted for us in the public portion of the giveaway, and we are pleasantly surprised that we are chosen for this generous gift.”
Melissa and Alan Rolli both served in the U.S. Army. Melissa was on active duty from 1999 to 2001 and Alan served from 1997 to 2003.
Alan was an Information Systems Operator/Analyst who was stationed at Fort Hood, TX, the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe in Belgium, and Bosnia. Throughout his career, Alan was awarded two Army Achievement Medals, one Army Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Ribbon, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, two Good Conduct Medals, NATO Medal, and Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal.
Melissa served as a Paralegal Specialist providing legal and administrative support in all areas of criminal law, family law, international law, civil and administrative law, contract law and fiscal law. She served primarily at Fort Hood, TX and was awarded an Army Commendation Medal and an Army Service Ribbon.
Today, Melissa continues to work as a paralegal in Colorado, and Alan works at an insurance underwriting software company. The couple has four boys and the family loves hiking, fishing, camping and all things outdoors.
“We are honored to be able to recognize these local military heroes and provide them with a new furnace unit and installation this Veterans Day,” said Anthony Perera, founder of Air Pros USA. “We truly loved learning about our local Veterans through this giveaway. This is just a small way for us to express our gratitude for their service and sacrifice.”
The Rolli’s also give back to the community. Alan frequently volunteers his time coaching youth sports organizations. Melissa routinely volunteers with Cub Scouts, her school PTO and other organizations as projects and opportunities arise. Most recently, Melissa volunteered her talents to the greater Colorado Springs community taking photos for graduating seniors that could not otherwise afford them.

Winter is coming and it’s time to think about getting your Colorado Springs furnace ready for winter. Sure, you haven’t thought about it much over the last few months because it has been so warm, but now it’s time to put a little bit of effort into your heater. After all, you want it to work for you all winter long.
Check your furnace filters. You probably hear this a lot, and that’s because it is important. Your furnace filter collects dust and other particles that come in through your furnace intake. Without it, all of these would go into your home. Over time, though, it gets full. This means that your furnace has to work harder than ever to pull air in so it has air to heat up. When the furnace works hard for a long time, it wears out. Change your filters every 30-90 days to preserve the life of your furnace.
Clean your ducts and airways. This also prevents your furnace from working harder than it needs to in order to get air to heat. Even if you just have a fraction of an inch of dust buildup in your ducts, your furnace will use more energy than it would if those were cleaned out. Do the best you can, or hire a professional for duct cleaning to clear them out.
Clean the area around your furnace. The more stuff, including dust, leaves, etc., that you have around your furnace, the greater chance there is that this will end up in the air that you’re breathing. In addition, having too much stuff around your furnace can increase the chances that your furnace will start a fire.
Install a programmable thermostat. This helps ensure that your home is warm when you need it to be warm, but it prevents your home from remaining warm when you’re not there. You don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn the thermostat up or down anymore, because the program will take care of everything. This can save your furnace all of that extra work, making it last longer
If your furnace is gas, fill it up. Gas tends to be cheaper in the warmer months, so filling it up before winter hits means that you will not spend as much. It also means that you won’t have to freeze if it suddenly gets cold before you expect it to.

In addition to all of this, which you can do yourself, it’s always a good idea to have a furnace inspection and any maintenance completed before you use it very much in the fall. Call us at One Source Home Services today, and we’ll find a time that’s convenient for one of our furnace experts to come to you.
During your furnace inspection, your tech will examine your furnace, test for a few things, then let you know how your furnace is doing. If anything needs to be repaired, we’ll get that on the schedule before it gets too cold. Otherwise, you’ll know that your furnace is in great shape going into the winter.
Aeroseal is quickly becoming the most talked about sealant product in renovations. Its cutting-edge technology enables installers to find those areas of the home experiencing leaks and quickly deploy sealant to stop energy loss and maintain home comfortability. One Source Home Solutions has not only seen an uptick in clients requesting the service but positive feedback coming from them after receiving their first new energy bill.
“Twenty to thirty percent of the heat and air that are meant to be blowing through a home’s vents actually escape through the air ducts,” says co-owner of One Source Home Solutions Scott Bidwell. “Aeroseal was designed to find those cracks and seal them. This not only lowers utility costs and improves performance but actually has a profound effect on air quality in the home.”
Dirt and dust particles from attics, crawlspaces, and garages are often sucked back into the vents and end up in the home, reducing indoor air quality. Moreover, those same leaks in the vents prevent much of the hot and cold air from reaching the intended room. By using Aeroseal to secure the integrity of the vents, homeowners can begin to experience not only cost savings but also better air quality. “That dust that settles everywhere comes mostly from your vents,” says Bidwell. “That’s one of the selling points of this product—it prevents the accumulation of dust particles that can really set off our client’s allergies.”
Bidwell’s sought-after home services firm is one of the first area companies to install Aeroseal and has already won prestige awards for installation and service. He believes that this has become an integral and important area of home service. “People are looking for better ways to manage costs of heating and cooling but also to protect their health,” he explains. “With one product we are able to do both.”
The company’s reputation for quality and customer service has helped them build trust with their clients and referrals. They believe that having ongoing dialogue about new products and services helps to maintain that trust built over time and will eventually lead them to new customers. They are currently one of the top agents of Aeroseal and encourages anyone looking to improve their system’s efficiency to give them a call today.
