Late Winter—How Your Heater May Have Worn Down

Monday, February 22nd, 2021

winter-sceneThe last full (official) month of winter is often the hardest part of the entire season. Deep freezes, snowstorms, ice storms, and general unpleasant, well, coldness. If you’ve lived in Colorado Springs for at least one full winter, you know what you’re in for. 

But you may not have considered how your heater is handling it all. If you prepped it in fall with professional maintenance, you might think it’ll stay in perfect shape for the whole season. It certainly has a much better chance of making it through a winter without needing heater repair in Monument, CO if it had maintenance—but the heater will still suffer from major wear as it helps keep the cold from invading your home.

Warning Sounds Your May Hear From Your Boiler

Monday, February 8th, 2021

woman-listeningOne of the advantages of using a boiler system to heat a home is that a boiler runs quieter than furnaces or heat pumps. Boilers don’t use powerful fans to distribute heat but instead a circulator pump that moves heated water from the boiler tank to the various radiators, baseboard heaters, and in-floor heating pipes. The main sounds you’ll hear from a boiler are the gas jets coming on and some noise from water movement—and even this won’t be noticeable when you’re not in the room with the boiler.

So when unusual noises start to interrupt the normal quiet of your home’s boiler, it often means you need to schedule a professional heater repair in Woodland Park, CO. We’re a local contractor who works on boiler repairs, and we’ll get to the bottom of whatever is causing the noise and what needs to be repaired.

Announcement: Robbins Joins PurelyAire© to offer Highest-ION technology in Douglas and El Paso counties

Friday, February 5th, 2021

Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Colorado Springs’ reputable HVAC business of 40 years, announced that they have joined the nationwide advanced air purification contractor group PurelyAire© and will be installing, warranting, and servicing the “highest-output (HO) technology” ION generators available today. 

Before HO, the next highest ION generators produce 400 million ION per second. Robbins will be offering HO technology that starts at 10 Billion IONS per second and upwards for larger applications. Because HO technology delivers at least 25 times the ION density in the space of a home or business than all competing ION generators, HO has a much better impact on air contaminants and takes less time to purify air. The manufacturer behind the HO technology reports it is highly effective at killing viruses including COVID-19, but Robbins emphasizes to their customers to purchase HO for its ability to purify air better than other options today. And because it has the lowest ozone output (< 0.001 ppm), well under federal requirements, it is safe for humans and animals.

If you do not yet know why IONs are so effective at purifying air, we encourage you to investigate at and

When you discover what IONs can do for you and where you live and work, give Robbins a call to set up a discovery meeting to explore what you can do to advance your air purification. Before you buy, Robbins offers a no-risk, no-charge trial to first prove our HO technology’s efficacy.
