Why Regular Heating Maintenance is Essential: The Sirius Assurance

By Gas Furnaces, Heaters

Every Dallas homeowner understands the significance of a reliable heating system, especially during those unpredictable winter months. Yet, how often do we prioritize its regular upkeep? Let’s dive into the top reasons why scheduling routine maintenance with Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning isn’t just a choice—it’s a necessity.

Safety Always Comes First
Gas heaters, if left unchecked, have the potential to become silent killers. Undetected faults can cause carbon monoxide leaks, an invisible and fatal gas. Choosing a reputable service, like Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning, is your first line of defense in ensuring your family’s safety.

The Promise of Durability
A stitch in time saves nine, and this couldn’t be truer for your heating unit. Regular checks and timely interventions by Sirius experts mean a longer life for your system, preventing large-scale issues down the line. Gone are the days of battling cold spots in your home. Consistent maintenance ensures even heating, offering the comfort you and your family deserve. A well-maintained heater isn’t just about warmth; it’s about efficiency. Regular servicing guarantees smoother operation, translating to energy conservation and noticeably reduced bills for Dallas homeowners.

Breathe Cleaner, Live Healthier
Our Dallas-based professionals aren’t just heating experts; they’re advocates for your health. Routine cleaning prevents the circulation of dust and contaminants, ensuring the air in your home remains fresh and clean.

Cost Savings in the Long Run
Think of regular checks as an investment. By identifying and addressing minor issues early on, you save significantly on potential major repairs. An optimally running heating system isn’t just good for your wallet—it’s better for the planet. By consuming less energy, your carbon footprint is minimized.

Upholding Warranty Requirements
Stay ahead by keeping your warranty intact. With many manufacturers requiring routine maintenance, Sirius ensures your compliance, safeguarding your warranty.

Sleep Easy on Cold Dallas Nights
Unanticipated heating breakdowns can be a nightmare. With Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning’s regular oversight, these unexpected disruptions are history.

Peace, Assured
Trust isn’t given; it’s earned. Let Sirius offer you peace of mind, affirming that your heating system remains in expert hands.

In the bustling heart of Dallas, your home is your sanctuary. And at its core is a heating system that warrants expert care. With Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning, you’re not just choosing a service; you’re choosing a long-term partnership grounded in safety, comfort, and efficiency. Because when it comes to your home, only the best will do.

Jacob Brorman is Getting Hands-on Experience at Sirius this Summer

By Mentorship

Jacob Brorman is spending his summer as an intern at Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning where he’s getting hands-on experience in what it takes day-to-day to run a dynamic business.

Although he lived out of Texas for 11 years, Jacob now resides in Dallas. “We lived/moved outside of the US due to my dads work. We lived in China for 5 years, then we lived in London, UK for 6 years… it was quite the experience,” says Brorman. He’s a graduate of Plano West Senior High, home of the Wolves, class of 2021. While attending there he was a multi-sport athlete, competing in baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, and flag football.

His role at Sirius this summer involves working with bookkeeping and, like his multiple and varying high school sports, includes multiple and varying tasks: Accounts Receivable, checking invoices status on the computer, filing invoices. He’ll also be picking up and returning equipment as needed.

He’s headed into his junior year at the College of Charleston in South Carolina this fall and after graduation in spring of 2025 he hopes to continue in an office position similar to the one he is now in, as an office assistant or administrative assistant.

Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning is happy to have a dedicated summer intern like Jacob here to help us through the hot summer months!

Intern Knox Thornhill Making a Difference

By Mentorship

Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning intern Knox Thornhill is making a difference in the Dallas community. A junior at SMU majoring in accounting, he plans to receive his BBA in the spring of 2024 and looks forward to working in the business world.

His responsibilities, he recalls, at SPAC were vast: “From creating and processing payments, monitoring job statuses, general invoice filing and checking – which included AHS contractor portal and FieldSure – office filing for the organization,” he explained. Knox was meticulous at his office duties but was often sent out of the office to do more. He says, “I was picking up material and systems and delivering them to technicians in the field, registering or assisting in registering warranties on installations, researching and implementing suggestions for improvement in Sirius’ general operations and their switch to a new contractor portal called ServiceLine, maintaining our warehouses, and helping train our two other interns, Jacob and Chase.”

A hometown boy born and raised in Dallas, he attended Bishop Lynch High School where Knox was a two-sport athlete. He played football for the Friars, and ran track, “Although poorly,” he admits with a laugh.

Knox also participated in the Bishop Lynch Student Council and worked as a math tutor with grades pre-k-8th, among other activities.

Knox currently plays rugby with Southern Methodist University’s club team, is a member of the Student Foundation, and participates in the Real Estate club.

When he’s not in class, studying, or playing rugby, Knox volunteers to do community service with the largest student organization on campus, SMU’s Mustang Heroes, a student-led community service organization. The group recently decorated Incarnation House for “Back-to-School.” IH is a safe place for homeless DISD students from North Dallas High to go after school to do their homework and get a healthy dinner.

SMU Mustang Heroes also help by working in local community gardens and raising funds for other clubs on campus.

Knox’s future is bright. His dream job, he says, “would most likely be to become a financial advisor, consultant, or partner at a fortune 500 firm.”

Until graduation in May of 2024 with his bachelor’s in accounting, you might bump into him watching and cheering on Dallas teams at local venues or heading out to go hunting or fishing.

Knox is a hard-working intern with a strong work ethic, ready to take on the world of business and all it entails.

Sirius Summer Intern is a True Champion at School and at Work

By Plumbing and Air Conditioning Dallas TX

Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning hires a small group of interns each summer and pays them while they gain real world work experience.

Jack Garrett feels fortunate to be one of them.

Jack’s role at Sirius is to work in the Call center, coordinating parts delivery, function as a dispatcher, and be available for other key office responsibilities.

He grew up in Plano, TX with his older sister. He attended John Paul II High School where he played Running Back/Quarterback; member of the National Honor Society.

He’s attending Trinity University, majoring in Business Analytics and Technology, minoring in Marketing, and plays Wide Receiver for the Division III Trinity Tigers football team.

While many summer intern jobs don’t pay, Sirius knows it’s right to pay their interns—as they work and learn the business–to help them to afford and finish their college educations.

Jack says his future plan is to return to Dallas to work, and hopes to get a job in Business Technology (or Tech) Consulting.

Jack Garrett is a champion at work and school, and a Sirius Intern the company is proud to employ.

Keep it Cool

By Plumbing and Air Conditioning Dallas TX

Maintenance checklist for the well-being of your HVAC system. Dallas TX

When you live in Texas, you gain a certain appreciation for your air conditioning system. With temperatures consistently in the 90s (at least!), a consistently cool home is the peace of mind we can’t afford to fail us.

(By the way, have you ever been curious about the genius to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude for inventing air conditioning? You can thank a Yankee.)

And while home systems aren’t as easy as “set it and forget it,” by performing annual maintenance for your HVAC system, you can pretty much relax knowing that you’ll make it through another 9-month summer (we love ya’ DFW!) without breaking a sweat.


  1. Clean and adjust thermostat
  2. Check and tighten loose connections
  3. Check and clean condenser
  4. Check refrigerant charge
  5. Monitor voltage and amperage draw
  6. Inspect inside cooling coil if accessible
  7. Monitor air conditioning cycle
  8. Clean primary and secondary drain lines
  9. Monitor and adjust blower components
  10. Check operating pressures
  11. Install algae tablets
  12. Check suction line insulation
  13. Check and/or replace filter

Check these boxes at least two months before you expect to need your cooling. After all, nobody wants to be surprised when the temps start to rise and your home’s HVAC  system isn’t working. (And if you have small children or elderly people living with you, no heat can mean more than just a few extra fans, it can be a serious health risk.)

If you regularly maintain your Cooling system and still struggle to keep cool, you may not have the right sized system. Find out the right size for your AC unit here.

And if just the thought of hitting each and every one of these maintenance points in the midst of your already too busy daily life makes you a little anxious, we have good news. Now you can enroll in our new signature service, Sirius Comfort Care Program. For just $129 a year, we’ll come out and do all of this for you. Membership includes two complimentary annual tune-ups, a springtime air conditioning and a fall furnace check. We even send you hassle-free reminders to schedule service. What’s more, you get 10% off all heating, air conditioning, and plumbing repairs, year-round!

 Things I Wish My Parents Taught Me Before I Left The Nest  

By Plumbing and Air Conditioning Dallas TX

Words of wisdom about plumbing and air conditioning from our family to yours.    

 Like many adult children who did not grow up around handy parents, the care and upkeep of your home can be a real head scratcher. What to do when certain very common problems arise can seem like a very big deal when you don’t have the experience of seeing someone fix them.

As plumbing and air conditioning pros, we get a lot of the same questions; things you probably should know as a homeowner.

Conversely, we’re parents, too, so we get it. People just not as well versed in the mechanics of our home systems (and how to maintain them yourself) as we used to be in our grandparents’ day.

The following is a list of things we wish that every up-and-coming adult is armed with the knowledge that they need to run a household without having a panic attack every time the drain gets clogged.

Change the filter on your air conditioning system every two months. Period.

Picture this, you’re sitting at home in the middle of summer and the register just won’t kick out cold air. You mess with the thermostat, reset the system, and you just get neutral air. You stockpile on box fans, dress for the desert, and wait for the HVAC pros to come and diagnose the problem. They pull out a filter that looks like the bottom of the Dead Sea and BAM! — you just spent hundreds of dollars to get someone to change your filter. They aren’t expensive, buy 6 at a time and set a ping on your calendar to change them every two-to-three months. A clean filter will keep you snug as a bug in a rug in winter and cool as a cucumber in summer.

If you’ve got a clogged drain due to nasty hair and other gross stuff, start with an over-the-counter drain unclogger first.

Most bathroom drain clogs result when dirt, skin flakes, and especially hair binds to soap scum on the walls of drain pipes. Over time, this gunk accumulates and reduces water flow. Before you call us (and we love when you do), troubleshoot the clog by removing and cleaning the drain stopper. Next, try using the humble drain plunger, keeping in mind to block the overflow drain in the tub or sink. If that doesn’t work, remove the drain elbow joint and clean it out. Clean drain stoppers routinely to prevent clogs and use a hair strainer drain-cover to trap hair before it goes down the drain.

If you’ve noticed a sudden drop in water pressure, it might not be the plumbing.

Don’t panic. There are many possible reasons you may be experiencing low water pressure. First, check each faucet in the house to see if the pressure problem is isolated, running hot and cold water separately to see if they have roughly the same pressure. If it’s only the shower head and/or a faucet that are weak, they may just need a good cleaning. To clean a shower head or faucet aerator, simply soak them in vinegar. If pressure problems persist, the source of the problem lies elsewhere.

 If you ignore a running toilet, the water company will laugh all the way to the bank.

When you hear your toilet running, there’s usually a sign that your water bills are going to start getting unnecessarily high. Think of how much water is wasted when the toilet is constantly running. Often, it’s just a quick fix that you can do yourself. The problem is often just an open flush-valve or something small within the tank. Take a look inside — it may not be as bad as you think — and it’s definitely costing you money. (Need to make a major repair? Check out our step-by-step instructions.)

Taking the time to understand your home systems doesn’t require trade school or a budding genius. Many of the everyday items that keep the water flowing and the house heated / cooled have been built the same way over the last one hundred years, you just have to know what to look for.

And now that you’re armed with your newfound practical knowledge about plumbing and air conditioning, you can avoid the high-stressed reaction when things don’t work quite right.

In over your head? No worries, we got you. Ask “the water guys” at Sirius Plumbing.& Air Conditioning. We’re here for you.
